Board says college leaders should review grad plan

DEVILS LAKE, N.D. (AP) -- The state Board of Higher Education has approved a resolution that allows college presidents and the university system chancellor to review and offer suggestions on a plan to improve graduation and retention rates.

The so-called Pathways to Student Success proposal was discussed at Thursday's monthly board meeting in Devils Lake.

It includes a proposed admissions index based upon a combination of high school grade point average, core courses and ACT college entrance exam scores. Interim Chancellor Larry Skogen and several presidents argued that the plan was rolled out without review from college leaders.

Skogen says it was ``rushed to implementation without input from those people who understand education best.''

The board says it's important to maintain a timeline on completing the revised version and asked Skogen to set the deadline.
