The Skyline College Annual Program Plan (APP) is an integral piece of the planning
and resource allocation processes. The annual process enables program/service areas
to be nimble in improving student learning and program effectiveness—evaluating and
refining progress on prior program objectives; responding to needs that emerge from
analysis of outcomes attainment, program data and other relevant information; and
requesting resources to support goals/ objectives. In addition, tracking your objectives
in Strategic Planning Online (SPOL), provides a means for longitudinal analysis of
the program/ service area’s effectiveness, which will inform the Comprehensive Program
The purpose of the Annual Program Plan is to collect information to be used by the
college planning bodies Strategic Planning and Allocation of Resources Committee (SPARC),
Instructional Leadership Team (ILT), Student Services Leadership Team (SSLT), Full-Time
Faculty Allocation Committee (FTEFAC), and may be used for Program Improvement and
Viability (PIV) processes.
Annual Program Plan (APP) Prompts
As for Spring 2017, the APP has shifted from a paper-based submission to an online
submission via Strategic Planning Online (SPOL), a cloud-based platform to integrate the process for program review, planning and
resource allocation. If you have questions about the process or SPOL, please contact
the PRIE Office.
The Annual Program Plan (APP) is due on
April 15 May 1 (extended for Academic 2019/20 submission).
