VIII. Action Plan
    Please describe your plan for responding to the above data. Consider curriculum,
    pedagogy/instructional, scheduling, and marketing strategies. Also, please reference any cross district
    collaboration with the same discipline at other Peralta colleges.
    Include overall plans/goals and specific action steps.
     10.ACTION PLAN -- Include overall plans/goals and specific action steps.
     A primary goal of the music department is to prepare students for transfer to music departments at 4
       year institutions. Students leave Laney to enroll in programs at nearby institutions including U.C.
       Berkeley, U.C. Davis, U.C. Santa Cruz, C. S. U. East Bay, C. S. U. San Francisco, C. S. U. Sonoma,
       C. S. U. San Jose, University of the Pacific and the San Francisco Conservatory of Music as well as
       colleges throughout the United States including the Berklee School of Music, Mannes College, and
       Northwestern University to name only a few. Many members of the Laney Faculty have direct
       connections to these programs either as alumni or current adjunct faculty. The music community is a
       very “tight knit” group and students from Laney are sought after as strong additions to 4 year
       programs. Documented students successes include former Laney graduates or transfer students who
       now have successful careers working in the fields of film scoring, conducting, education, and
       performance. Music departments in 4 year institutions always administer placement exams for
       incoming students. The possible content of many of these exams has been shared on a collegial
       basis with many of the Laney Faculty. As a result, specific course content often reflects instruction in
       and preparation for these placement exams. As mentioned previously curriculum is reviewed on a
       regular basis.
     The music department continues to have one of the highest retention levels (05-06 – 83.7% course
       completion with retention at 81%, 04-05 – 81.8% course completion with retention 78%) in the
       Peralta District. The numbers are high and have improved. The department intends to maintain this
       high standard. In the past 5 years the size of the full time music faculty has increased from 1 to 4 and
       this has surely played an important roll in student success. The department is still in need of a full
       time piano instructor and the addition of support staff to allow the faculty to focus on instruction is
       imperative. The department has maintained a high rate of student success there is a critical need for
       facilities renovation. Good students have been patient and now hope for the installation of a new
       computer lab as well as additional areas for practice. The faculty is in great need of storage facilities.
       We still need practice room repair, sound system updating, a student listening lab, recording studio
       facilities, rehearsal room renovation, additional practice rooms, faculty offices, a second piano lab to
       only begin the list. The details of these needs have been submitted to the dean and it is hoped that
       some of the needs can be fulfilled immediately.
     The department still needs support in the area of administrative assistance. Students have
       expressed concern about the ability to access practice rooms without interrupting instructors in class.
       Maintenance of the music library, sustaining and strengthening the world music program, summer
       music program, and the performing arts alliance make the securing of administrative help very
       urgent.
     Student learning assessment has always taken place in the music department but the program level
       student assessment has to date been informal in nature. The department meetings in the next two
       months will concentrate on assessment of student learning outcomes and updating of curriculum
       department wide.
