First Key: Build FTE
Growth of student enrollment is a measure of service by the College to citizens and a basis for state financial support. To implement this key, RCC will:
1.1 Expand the scope, quality, and availability of programs and services.
Redwood Campus Objective 1
RWC will increase FTE by 4%
Redwood Campus Objective 7
RWC will explore, develop and offer new programs, options, and courses responsive to student, community, business and industry needs.

(Objective met) Workshops for EMT,Fire Science, and Criminal Justice resulted in a total FTE of 4.8
Table Rock Campus Objective 2

Accomplishment Extent: Objective Partially Met
This is a 5 year process that began in October. Subbstantial progress has been made in Electronics, and projects are under way in Developmental Studies and Manufacturing. A Title III kick-off event and presentation to TRC instructional staff were also accomplished during this period.
Facilities Objective 4
The perception of a safe environment is conducive to the educational process. Security cameras are proven to be a successful deterrent for crime. It is our goal to expand coverage, by the existing security camera system, from 50% to 75% of the campus areas.
Accomplishment Extent: Objective Partially Met

Accomplishment Extent: Objective Partially Met
In the summer of 2005, the RWC ABE Department established as new ESL class at St. Annes's Church in Grants Pass. One part time ESL instructor was hired and a tutor wasl also assigned to assist with assessments and tracking of the students. Ass the class increased in size another part time instructor was added so that there would be a beginning and intermediate level. The class has continued and in fall term of 2005 served a total of 23 students. Collaboration with the Gospel Rescue Mission in Grants Pass continues and the class for ABE and GED® is held Mondays and Wednesdays from 9-12. A part time instructor and a staff member from the Mission share this class. In fall term nine students were served. Another new are for RWC ABE is the Basic Skills Lab at the Job Council site on Harbeck Road. A part time instructor was hired for 20 hours per week to work with students who are referred by the Job Council employment counselors. This arrangement mirrors the collaboration at the Job Council site in Jackson County. During Fall Term ten students were enrolled.
ABE/GED® Objective 2
The TRC ABE will establish morning GED® classes, evening ESL and afternoon GED® classes for high school age students. ABE will create a teen program (DEPOT) in collaboration with School District 6 (Central Point).
Accomplishment Extent: Objective Partially Met
In fall term of 2005, the Phoenix Center at TRC opened. This center is a combination of the Library, the Developmental Education Department tutoring center, and the ABE/GED®/ESL Department. Because of its combined purpose, the hours that instructors are available and classes are offered cover the college tutoring needs as well as the ABE/GED® needs.  ABE/GED® classes are available MTWR from 9 – 1 and then again in the evening from 4 – 8, and Fridays 9-12.  ESL classes are offered at TRC three evenings a week from 6 to 8.  In partnership with Central Point School District, a teen program is held at TRC four days a week for a total of 16 hours. During the 2005 fall term the TRC ABE Department began, with a $25,000 grant from Jackson County School District 6 (Central Point), a GED® preparation program for teens. It is modeled after the successful Diploma Equivalency Program for Outreach Teens (DEPOT) that has been operating for several years at the Downtown Center and now at the Redwood Campus. The TRC DEPOT received 14 students in the first orientation and then added more students with each subsequent orientation. As of 1-31-06, 37 students had been oriented. Currently ten are attending on a regular basis. Two have completed GED® tests and others have been referred to testing. The DEPOT program has specific teachers assigned to curriculum development, instruction, and tracking of student progress and attendance. An RWC clerical staff, with help from the DEPOT teachers and TRC support staff, also provide the district with detailed reporting on student performance and attendance. The DEPOT students attend 16 – 18 hours a week and are assigned to two ABE teachers during that time. Attendance and student retention have been challenges for the DEPOT. To address these issues the school district has initiated bus service to TRC and the lead instructor, Sandy Stanfill, is working with school district personnel to make appropriate referrals.
Allied Health - Nursing Objective 1
Nursing Department Objective 1.1: Collaborate with OHSU and other Oregon Consortium for Nursing Education (OCNE) partners as well as with clinical partners and develop a curriculum plan and allocate resources for implementing a successful transition from the current curriculum in the ADN program to the new curriculum, including a successful “teach out” of the old curriculum to second year students in ’06- ’07. Action plan: Engage in regional Consortium curriculum planning with OHSU at SOU, UCC, and SOCC, and presentations to regional clinical facilities. In addition, at least two instructors will participate in OCNE Curriculum Committee monthly meetings/work sessions beginning in September 2005. Explore availability of non-general fund sources to pay for 2 P-T clinical instructors for spring term 2006 to allow F-T nursing faculty release from clinical for program curriculum development/transition planning to take place, in preparation for new nursing curriculum implementation September 2006. Outcome measure: Curriculum plan in place and new courses ready by September 2006. By spring 2006 Nursing Department Advisory Committee meeting partners will be knowledgeable and supportive of plan for transition to new Consortium curriculum. This departmental objective supports RCC Objectives 1.1, 3.2, and 4.1.
Accomplishment Extent: Objective Partially Met
As of spring term, 2006, all 3 LPNs admitted to the second year of the ADN program in 2005 are still in the program. That is 100% retention compared to 43% retention of the LPNs admitted in 2004 (3 out of 7 completed) and 50% retention of the LPNs admitted in 2003 (4 out of 8 completed). However, during this academic year the ADN program lost 6 first year students (1 for personal reasons, 1 failed clinical, 4 failed academically or withdrew because they were failing; 3 out of the 4 who failed academically came in with GPAs lower than the usual GPA of >3.2 typically seen in accepted Nursing students) and 1 second year student (was not one of the LPNs who joined in summer; failed academically). While the objective for this year was specifically focused on retaining the LPNs that join the program, the objective will be broadened for next year.
