Earlier Alert Course Readiness Communication

The early alert system is set up really nicely to contact students and advisers during the semester, and it is awesome that faculty can check a students course readiness to be sure the students have the appropriate prerequisites. It would be nice if there was an easy way to contact an adviser or the student through the Early Alert before the semester starts if an instructor suspects a student was placed in a class that might not be the correct fit for them. The earlier we can alert the students that there may be an issue, the easier it will be to get them moving in the right direction. Adding a contact the adviser button on the course readiness data page might help us expedite the communication.

Additional resources needed (i.e. money, people, technology): The technology department would have spend extra time to add the button.


Value our Diversity

I spoke to Kay Hocker from the diversity council the other day and she was describing diversity within the Rochester Public Schools. Kay described how many ethnicity’s and languages ares spoken there. This information peaked my interest in our RCTC community. Would it be possible to learn information like how many countries and languages represent our RCTC family? I feel that it would be a great way to understand and give those individuals a chance to share their culture. I contacted the Diversity Council and they stated that there are 80 languages from 71 countries in the RPS school district. Pretty amazing.

Additional resources needed (i.e. money, people, technology): Not sure.
