Basic Skills and Student Outcomes Acceleration Project (BSSOAP)

The preeminent problem being addressed by the Basic Skills Student Outcomes Acceleration Project (BSSOAP) application from Coastline Community College (Coastline) is that students participating in the College's Basic Skills English and math sequences are underperforming in the areas of placement, success, retention, persistence, and completion in comparison with the overall College rates. The problem stems from the College having a two-level-below English and three-level-below math Basic Skills course sequence prior to completion of college-level English and math. It is known that once assigned to remediation, relatively few students successfully complete college-level coursework in these subject areas and go on to achieve their educational goals. In addition to the identified instructional sequencing flaws, the College is also lacking a few essential, high-quality, proactive student support services, which have been found successful in pilot projects on a smaller scale. Coastline, through engagement with faculty, counselors, administration, and students, found there are 1.) limited support personnel to guide and promote student academic success, and 2.) limited pre-assessment support to help students optimize readiness for English and math placement exams. Under BSSOAP, Coastline proposes the following interventions: Academic Success Coach Program, Pre-Assessment Prep Academies, and Accelerated Learning.

Orange County United Way (OCUW) in partnership with the IRS and members of the Orange County Financial Stability Alliance is leading the OC Free Tax Prep Campaign benefiting low and moderate income families throughout Orange County. The grant purpose is to support the capacity of OCUW partner sites across Orange County to provide free tax preparation services to eligible low and moderate income families, ensuring client's access to all eligible tax benefits during the 2018 tax filing season. The grant is available to qualifying partner agencies offering free tax preparation services, in line with IRS guidelines, and through the Volunteer Income Tax Assistance (VITA) program and Facilitated Self-Assistance (FSA) using MyFreeTaxes.com.
