Student Equity & Achievement Act

The Student Equity & Achievement Act provides resources to community college districts for activities to ensure equal educational opportunities and promote student success for all students regardless of race, gender, age, disability, or economic circumstances.

Each community college district must have a student equity plan that includes campus-based research on named categories of students in order to determine disproportionate impact.  The plan must also detail goals for access and retention, degree and certificate completion, English as a Second Language completion, and transfer outcomes.

Plan development must involve all stakeholders.  Plans are due to the Chancellor of the California Community College by December 1, 2019.

This initiative combines the prior Student Success and Support Program and Student Success for Basic Skills funding.
