Local residents interested in helping the College of the Sequoias shape its five-year strategic plan are encouraged to attend an open forum at the Technology Learning Center (TLC) on Tuesday, April 6, beginning at 5 p.m.
The college is seeking community input on how better to serve local its Corcoran college students. Residents will be asked to comment on the following areas:
- Student access;
- Students’ success in completing their education;
- Mastery of basic skills;
- Students as citizens of a global community;
- Efficient and effective college practices; and
- Economic growth in Kings and Tulare counties.
COS last year successfully passed a $60 million bond to construct a new campus in north Tulare. The bond cost is spread between Corcoran, Tulare and Lindsay, all cities in the COS district.
Corcoran is expected to get about $1 million of the bond money, to be applied to local educational services.
