Basic Skills & English as a Second Language

The Chancellor's Office sub-unit responsible for Basic Skills and English as a Second Language (ESL) provides State Leadership activities for the colleges, including, technical assistance; program evaluation; faculty/staff development; research and identification of emerging issues; advocacy; and special project funding and monitoring, such as California High School Exit Exam (CAHSEE) Prep courses. The sub-unit also answers requests for information on community college Basic Skills and ESL activities from the public, lawmakers, the media and other interested parties.

A Chancellor's Office Specialist for Academic Planning and Development is the lead staff for the sub-unit. In addition to providing overall coordination of sub-unit activities, the Specialist also chairs the Chancellor's Basic Skills Advisory Committee. The primary mission of that committee is complementary to sub-unit activities. It provides a forum for discussion and dissemination of research findings and other information on the public value of Basic Skills and ESL instruction and on resource needs and policy issues related to serving underprepared students in the California Community Colleges.
