Educational Master Planning
Educational Master Planning Brochure
The MAAS approach to
educational planning includes district-wide participation and input throughout
the planning process which includes,
but is not limited to, the following tasks:
- Conduct a "section level" curriculum analysis at
each existing campus location within the District.
- Conduct full data analysis of key curriculum
indicators of the College-key indicators shall
include course and program productivity measures,
analysis of student participation rates, evaluation
of enrollments per section, weekly student contact
hours (WSCH) per section, full time equivalent
faculty (FTEF) load ratios, WSCH and full time
equivalent student (FTES) productivity, and lecture
and laboratory WSCH comparisons to assess
existing efficiency levels.
- Generate a "current curriculum baseline" for
the instructional programs of the District from
which forecasts for space needs can be made.
- Generate a comparative demographic analysis
of the service area of the college campuses.
- Conduct a local, regional and state (external)
environmental scan, identifying trends or conditions
that may have an impact on the District in the future.
- Conduct an (internal) environmental scan within the
District identifying historic trends and key student
characteristics with regard to gender, age and ethnic
distribution, enrollment scheduling preferences,
student load distribution and awards of the College.
- Review and assess the District's existing Space
Inventory Report (Report 17) and Five Year Capital
Construction Plan for current status and capacity/
load threshold ratios.
- Prepare and present a projected future program of
instruction using enrollment growth, class sections,
weekly student contact hours (WSCH) and required
lecture and laboratory hours as the basis for
- Determine space capacity needs for the future
(15 years) with respect to quantifiable square foot needs.
- Based on the instructional program projected for
the future, outline a proposed facility/building plan
that meets forecasted enrollment and WSCH and
refines the existing Strategic Capital Projects Plan
relative to need, prioritization, sequencing, phasing
and financing demands.
