SRI’s evaluation of the California Community College Linked Learning Initiative (CCCLLI) addressed implementation issues and institutional and student outcomes of work by three community colleges and partnering K–12 districts to use Linked Learning to improve college transitions and success.
The California Community College Linked Learning Initiative (CCCLLI) aimed to increase student success in community college, especially among low-income and first-generation high school graduates of Linked Learning pathways. From 2012 through 2014, SRI evaluated the model demonstration phase of three CCCLLI community colleges and their K–12 partners. Each hub college created pathways in different industry sectors and built on its own programmatic strengths.
Evaluation findings offer insights into the potential collective impact of community college and K–12 systems alignment on regional industry, education, and workforce development ecosystems.
