SACSCO Student Achievement

SACSCOC Student Achievement

Clarendon College identifies, evaluates and publishes goals and outcomes for student achievement, appropriate to the College’s mission, the nature of the students we serve and the kinds of programs offered.  The institution has identified five measures to document student success:

       5) Certificate and Licensure Pass Rates

The following tables include specific data on these student achievement measures, including thresholds of acceptability, recent trends, and performance goals.

History Clarendon College is the oldest institution of higher education in the Texas Panhandle, having been established in 1898 by the Methodist Episcopal Church, South. The College was successfully administered by the church through the first quarter of the 20th Century. The original college was moved to Abilene and became McMurry University. The Clarendon Independent School Board purchased the college property and Clarendon College was re-established in 1927 as a non-sectarian junior college. It is maintained, in part, by property taxes in the Clarendon College District (Donley County). The College was recognized by the Texas Education Agency and the Association of Texas Colleges and Universities in 1927. The College separated from the school district and moved to its present location in 1968. Clarendon College now operates from a beautiful 107-acre campus on the west edge of Clarendon. Eight counties comprise the College's service area. Clarendon College is one of the 50 state-assisted community colleges in the Texas system. Accreditation Clarendon College is accredited by the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools Commission on Colleges (SACSCOC) to award Associate Degrees. Questions about the accreditation of Clarendon College may be directed in writing to the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools Commission on Colleges at 1866 Southern Lane, Decatur, GA 30033-4097, by calling (404) 679-4500, or by using information available on SACSCOC’s website (www.sacscoc.org).

As a returning, current, or prospective student, it's important to build a relationship with an academic advisor. An advisor can help you create an academic plan by helping you select appropriate courses and create a class schedule for Fall, Spring, or Summer semesters.

They can help you with the following: Choose the degree, (Associate in Arts or in Science or in Applied Science) or a Certificate offered at Clarendon College that will best meet your goals. Plan to transfer to another college or university. Learn about other resources to help achieve your academic goal, such as tutoring or study groups. Advise on how to raise your GPA if you are on academic probation. Assist with employment and career choices. Academic advisors are available to meet with you throughout the year- not just at registration time. Most importantly, during peak advising times (just before and during registration), if possible, it's best to meet with an advisor in person to review your degree plan and course selection. If you are an online student and meeting with an advisor is not possible then please e-mail or call your advisor for assistance.

You website can be a powerful tool for your business. However, if your potential customers cannot find it or cannot find the information they are looking for on it, they will likely return to Google and find another site that provides what they are looking for. We offer you the tools to take control of your website's content. Ensure your placement in Google's ranking and increase your leads and conversions by keeping your content up to date and relevant with runCMS. runCMS does not rely on third party plugins that are prone to breakage. Instead, it is actively developed, hosted, and supported by the friendly and experienced staff at Run Business Solutions. That means that you don't need to worry about dealing with hard-to-reach, unreliable web hosting companies. runCMS is powerful and easy to use. We would love to show you how it works. Powerful Tools RunIT CMS gives users powerful and easy to use tools to make managing website content easy. These tools are managed independently and the pages update automatically. This reduces (if not eliminates) the need to use third-party tools to accomplish goals. However, RunIT CMS allows for complete integration with custom CSS and JavaScript. Galleries A Gallery is a collection of images. RunIT CMS gives users the ability to create multiple Galleries. Users can upload and re-size image and add them to a Gallery. Images can be re-ordered, deactivated and given a hyperlink. ALT tags are fully accessible. Galleries can be added to pages as thumbnails, slideshows, or thumbnail slideshows. The slideshow is powered by the Nivo Slider by Dev7studios. Libraries A Library is a collection of Resources. A Resource is a file with a Title and Description. A Library could be seen as a collection of files made available on a website with a title and description. Library Resources can have an expiration date added which will cause them to no longer appear on the website when the expiration date passes. Libraries can be added to pages as simple lists of Titles that are download links or as tables with the Title, Description, File Name, and a Download button. Library downloads are tracked and are reported in the Analytics Dashboard. Blogs Blogs are a great way for users to publish fresh content to the world. RunIT CMS includes a Blog tool with Categories. Blog Posts can have a cover photo, can be deactivated, and are edited with the Custom Content Editor. Blog Posts have an optional expiration date. All non-expired, active Blog Posts are added to the site's automatically generated sitemap.xml file and the site's RSS feed. Blog Posts can integrate with Calendar events, allowing users to create a blog post and a Calendar Event at the same time. Calendars No full-featured CMS is complete without a calendar. The RunIT CMS Calendar tool allows users to create multiple calendars, each having a name and a custom color. Events can easily be added to a Calendar. Events have a Title, Description, Start Date/Time, End Date/Time, option for All Day Event, Reminder Date/Time, and RSVP Required. The Calendar displays on the page as either a calendar or a list of events, each being hyperlinks that open details about the event. If RSVP Required is selected, the event details will allow users to RSVP. RunIT CMS Custom Content Editors are present throughout the system. They are WYSIWYG (What You See Is What You Get) editors that allow for content to be added and formatted in a Microsoft Word like manner. Our editor is one of the best on the market. RunIT CMS Custom Content Editor Toolbox The Custom Content Editors include a wide array of features for formatting text, pasting from Word, and pasting as HTML. Users can apply a CSS class from the site.css file to images and text. There is a full multi-level undo/redo mechanism with action trails like Microsoft Word. The editor includes a spell checker, find and replace tool, and a table builder. The editor also includes a powerful hyperlink manager, image manager, and document manager. The image manager allows users to edit images. The RunIT CMS Custom Content Editor produces clean, semantic HTML markup that users can view or edit with the click of a button. This allows for advanced users to embed videos, add custom scripts or styles, and generally take total control of how the HTML is going to look. Content Blocks There is no reason to repeat the same action (such as copying and pasting) to update multiple pages. No one enjoys manually updating each page of a website in order to update a hyperlink or an image. It is our goal to eliminate duplicate work when it comes to editing web content. That's what Content Blocks are all about. A content block is a piece of formatted content that can be added to pages and updated in one place. Content Blocks are edited with the Custom Content Editors, giving users complete control over the formatting (and advanced users control over the actual HTML). An example of a use case for a Content Block is a navigation sub-menu that exists in a subset of pages. Another example is a YouTube video that needs to be displayed on many pages and is subject to change. Site Layout Users have complete control over the way their websites look. Everything contained in the tag is editable using a Custom Content Editor. The system includes several macros for the purpose of adding the site navigation and page content in any place desired. There are also macros to get the site root, the current date/time, and to add CMS tools to the layout.know your purpose.
