The Joint Legislative Audit Committee recently approved a motion
by state Sen. Richard Pan, D-Sacramento, to review community
college districts’ long-term strategic plans to upgrade
instructional technology and training. The audit will include a
large college district, a medium-sized one, and a small one as a
cross-section of the state’s 72 districts.
Suleman Ishaque, chair of CFT’s Educational Technology Committee
— who works for the Los Angeles Community College District —
expects the auditor to find that districts have few, if any,
plans for ongoing training, even for employees in charge of
campus information technology networks.
