Transforming Basic Skills English at Laney

The Laney College English Department is pleased to announce that our college is one of 43 community colleges across California to be awarded a California Community Colleges Basic Skills and Student Outcomes Transformation Program.

“Basic skills instruction serves as a foundation for student success for California community colleges,” said Erik E. Skinner, acting chancellor of the California Community Colleges. “These funds will have a tremendous impact on ensuring students with basic skills needs will have access to classes and programs to help achieve their higher education and career goals.”

The Basic Skills and Student Outcomes Transformation Program provides Proposition 98 funds to implement or expand evidence-based innovations and redesign in the areas of assessment, student services, and instruction in order to improve the progression from remedial education to college level instruction. Seventy-four percent of students enrolling at community colleges in California are in need of remedial instruction in math or English or both.
