6
Faculty Resistance
  • Initial resistance from the faculty took 3 forms
  • SBVC is located in a low income area with a
    student population with a high need for basic
    skills. Admitting high school student
    (especially underperforming students) is taking
    us in the wrong directionthe goal is to be less
    like a high school not more like a high school.
  • High school aged girls are vulnerable to older
    boys
  • Discomfort with the prospect of parental
    involvement

7
The MCHS Program at SBVC
  • SBVC MCHS started in Fall 2001 with 75 students.
  • Students could only be admitted if they met the
    following criteria
  • 10th grade
  • Student enrolled in one of the High Schools in
    the San Bernardino City Unified District
  • Reasonable flexible social criteria

Structure of Program

  • All parental interaction is limited the MCHS
    teachers and administrators

Problems that Emerged

    books.
  • Colleges do not buy books for students

    they are required to purchase the books
