|The following section describes
the current curriculum and services of Los Angeles Trade
Technical College. It also contains enrollment projections
by department or area and projected needs for facilities,
equipment and personnel.
The process used to develop these projections
began with a meeting of department chairs and deans.
A draft of the survey to be used was reviewed and revised
to fit the needs of the departments. Subsequently, surveys
were distributed to all departments and units in the
college, and faculty and staff were asked to fill out
the survey. Overall enrollment projections for the college
were provided as a basis for planning.
Results of the survey were reviewed
by administrators in each area and transferred to the
consultants, who provided a first draft for review.
Subsequently, a second draft was prepared. Next, discussions
were held with the President and Vice Presidents of
Instruction, Student Services and Administrative Services.
The final drafts of these sections were prepared based
on all information gathered, including special program
needs, program elimination plans, the college's average
class size goal and recommendations made by the executive
team (the President and Vice Presidents).
Academic Affairs projections of the
numbers of faculty and class sections are based on input
from all the sources mentioned. In each case, the current
class size or average class size goal was used, sometimes
with the result that numbers of faculty and/or staff
required to conduct a program were changed. In some
cases, special requirements for class sizes were taken
Administrative and Student Services
areas also were reviewed with the executive team and
their recommendations were used to make necessary revisions.
