Skyline College engages in a planning process to support fulfillment of the Mission, Vision, and Values, as captured in the Education Master Plan  . The Integrated Planning and Resource Allocation Cycle Model   illustrates the process and time-frame. A key aspect is Program Review; the Comprehensive Program Review (CPR) facilitates long range planning, and the Annual Program Plan (APP) enables more nimble planning and resource allocation. Objectives that emerge from program review are aligned with the College’s Strategic Goals and Initiatives  . In addition, long range planning is supported through topical plans, such as on distance learning.
