Program Planning and Assessment (PPA)
for Services, Offices & Non-Instructional Programs
Comprehensive Review, Annual Review & Action Plan
Spring 2014
The purpose of Program Planning and Assessment at Hartnell College is to obtain an honest and
authentic view of a service/office/program and to assess its strengths, opportunities, needs, and
connection to the mission and goals of the college. The process is based on the premise that each area
reviews assessment data and uses these data to plan for improvement. The results of these annual
cycles provide data for a periodic (every five years) comprehensive review that shows evidence of
improvement and outlines long-range goals.
The Program Planning and Assessment process will improve and increase the flow of information
and data at Hartnell College. The result of the process will also improve institutional effectiveness.

2. Analyze and report on salient patterns and trends in this data. Given these
patterns and trends in users, needs, usage and/or other key factors, identify
particularly challenging issues in service/program provision, office
functioning, and the evaluation of the service/office/non-instructional
program.
Student Demographic Ethnicity and Gender by Disabilities (see attached)
The above data was pulled from DataMart and In House data through Access program. The
DSPS staff met on several occasions to discuss the above data and interpret the patterns, trends
and challenges. Some of the data in particularly are addressed below.
Deaf and Hard of Hearing
·
A sign interpreter coordinating position was hired (professional expert) in Aug 2010 based on the
increasing numbers of students who are deaf who were attending Hartnell College. At the time of
this position, the total number of students who are deaf was approximately 8 -10 students.
Because of this high number of students, a sign coordinator position was needed to organize the
interpreting needs. The sign coordinator billed for only time spent organizing or interpreting.
And the budget in 2010 reflected this with a DHH expenditure of $14,372.
·
With a sign coordinator position in place for all of 2011 to Dec 2012, the DHH budget doubled
from $14,372 to $29,246.
·
The sign coordinator resigned in Dec 2012 and a new hire Interpreter Coordinator (professional
expert) began the position. The billing increased to a flat rate of 20 hours per week plus
additional captioning and VRI costs were started. As a result, the DHH budget increased to
$48,246 for the 2012-2013 fiscal year despite a 67% decrease of students are deaf attending
Hartnell at that time (From 8-10 students to 3).
·
As a result of the decrease of deaf students at Hartnell, it was determined the sign interpreting
position was no longer needed and the Lead Specialist assumed these duties to her position. With
the DSPS budget continuing to be a significant issue, this discontinuation of position should
address the need to reduce budget costs while continuing to maintain optimal service.
6|P ag e
Learning Disabilities
o During the 2010-2011, year - DSPS counseling services was reduced to one full time
counselor and one full time LD Specialist/Counselor. The number of DSPS with
Learning disabilities was 12.3% of the total numbers of students served that year (CA
community college average was 18%). The number in the "Other" category was 38%
(CA CC average 34%). In Spring of 2012, a part time LD Specialist/Counselor position
was added to DSPS and the LD numbers increased to 18% for that fiscal year and 17%
the following year. In addition, the overall number of DSPS students served increased by
9% in both 2011 and 2012. Adding the part-time LD Specialist/Counselor position has
improved the program by increasing the number of students being assessed for LD and
the overall numbers of students served.
Psychological Disabilities
o
o
o
We can see a trend with psychological disabilities rising and believe that this may be in part due
to our vet students and PTS.
The challenge is getting these students in the door due to the stigma attached with “DSPS”.
We are addressing this with outreach workshops and by utilizing our newest counselor who has a
solid psychology background.
Other challenge that has arisen due to the increase in students with psychological disabilities is in the
classroom setting. Instructors have approached DSPS staff regarding behavior issues with students that
appear to have psychological disabilities. They are primarily concerned with classroom management
problems and extra time and attention that some students require. We have addressed this issue by:
o
o
o
Outreach and information at flex day activities
Refer instructors to our website that has helpful tips and recommendations about how to
accommodate our students http://www.hartnell.edu/students/dsps/RESOURCES.html
We also often act as intermediary and support person for both the student and the instructor to
help meet the needs of both.
3. Provide any other relevant data and describe any other relevant qualitative
factors that affect service/program provision, office functioning, and the
evaluation of the service/office/non-instructional program. List the sources of
this data and information.
The most critical challenging elements of the DSPS Program that serve over 400 unduplicated
students, continue to be in the program organizational structure. For the size of our program
and twelve month of service, the department cannot continue to provide service to meet the
needs of our students with 1 full-time Counselor, 2 full-time support staff, 2 part-time
counselors and the remaining staff are student workers. In the past few years, the DSPS budget
allocations have fallen short to provide the financial support and our ability to meet the increase
demands of students for DSPS services. Suggestive organization needs are:

B. SERVICE/PROGRAM MODALITY
1. Describe the different physical locations (campuses, sites, etc.) at which, the
various delivery vehicles (phone, online, face-to-face, etc.) through which, and the
times (of day, evening, week, etc.) at which the service/program is provided to
intended recipients. Consider staffing and other resources available to serve user
needs for each location, vehicle, and time specified.
A) Location:
Department of Supportive Program and Services is located at 411 Central Avenue,
Salinas, CA on the main campus in Building B, Student Services, and Room 107. The

o
o
Assistive technology, testing accommodation, seating and interpreting services to fully
engage students to have full access to services. The off campuses sites could benefit by
having more DSPS support such as:
high tech lab,
LD testing,
Alternative Media,
note-takers,
reader/classroom aides and digital equipment i.e. recorders, smart pens,
FTF delivery takes place M-F from 8-5 at the Main Campus. These services include counseling, test
proctoring, recommending accommodations, assistive technology, computers, requests for alt media,
requests for note taking, picking up notes, and other assistance.

·
·
·
Larger monitors: 7 monitors in DSPS lab need to have 27” screen, one in the computer lab, one
at Alisal, one at King City Center.
Talking Calculator, Color Keyboards, Digital Recorders and Smart Pens
Students could benefit from having additional classes/workshops for assistive technology and
beginning Keyboarding/computers, and instructional assistance in the lab.

Main campus could benefit by undergoing hardscape modifications, which would allow greater access
by those with mobility impairments. DSPS Faculty and staff provided a complete documentation of an
assessment for mobility accessibility by walk throughout the main campus to identifying areas of limited
access for persons with mobility impairment.
Some areas where identified such as:
·

C. OUTCOMES
SERVICE AREA OUTCOMES
Each service unit/office/non-instructional program develops its own Service Area Outcomes
(SAOs). The outcomes should be directly related to the work of the service unit/office/noninstructional program, challenging but attainable, and measureable. SAOs should articulate
what specifically is to be achieved; their measurement should assess how well the service
unit/office/non-instructional program is performing.
