Welcome all to a meeting of the board and trustees.
It's clear you all having a great time, I hate to interrupt.
But if you find your seats, we will get going.
Our plan is to take a number of things out of order because we understand that there
are families here who want to share with the honored member to be recognized and
then we will retire into a close session having to do with the search process that
we will. Back and we will have announcement for you
it's hard to tell exactly how long these things take but we'll do it as
expeditiously as we possibly can. We turn; we note in the role that all
members of the board of trustees are present.
And we turn our attention to a hearing of citizens the first of which is Tom Garry.
Tom, welcome, I can't tell you how good it is to be
here, with the reason I am gonna be here President has the members of the board,
President [inaudible]. Greetings and thank you,
As an artist and as a teacher and as a designer, part of my makeup is about book
ends. And this is kind of a book end you may
have heard and some of you were there a week and a half ago, we did the gala
opening of the Garden Theater in around Music Building in the Dirkwoods Theater.
And in fact have an opening at the Dirkwoods tomorrow night.
Right, We're back in business after three years.
And it's been quite three years I'll tell you.
The foundation threw one heck of a party; Rick Mockler put together one heck of
another, show and movie and even had some cameo appearances by some people I won't
name. And more important all of you in the
community and my colleagues got to see what has been going on up here for the
last three years and that was exciting. But to book into that, I wanted to take
just a few minutes of your time tonight and get in the record and some of this you
will heard me say, those who were there at the, at the gala over the weekend.
But basically just to, to, Give some acknowledgement.
November. Twenty-ninth of 2007 before an earlier
board of trustees, I stood in this room and we had an interesting dialogue with
John Romo and Joe Sullivan and you all and some other people about the drama music
building. And, the board members of that time Mr.
Vegas, you were among them, Mr. Dirkwoods, you were among them and Mr.
Livingston, you were among them. Kiel Alexander, Joe Doves, Sally Greene,
I've gotta turn my page here. Dess O'Neil.
All voted unanimously, stunningly unanimously to approve additional funding
for the Drama Music Building that enabled us to incorporate the technology and the
building infrastructure that was really needed to make it an effective
instructional facility for the music and the theatre departments.
I said at that, I don't have to say it now the gratitude that all of us had for that
vision, that courage because of the time there wasn't really sure where the money
was coming from although there was discussion to the bond
And also the support that we had from the academic center at that time.
The student center, the college planning council, it was a heavy moment and, and a
decisive moment and I think a very good moment in the history of this college
because it expressed what this college in the 36 years that I taught here is all
about. And that is about innovation and about
excellence and about collegial decision making and collegial cooperation which is
what I think SBCC is about And all of you on the, who are there and
for films sense of gratitude for that. To this board, a profound sense of
gratitude as well as the previous board for, the support we've had over the last
three years and some of it's been difficult that I noticed.
You know, there were unexpected issues that were raised.
There were time delays and everything else.
But always we've, we've seen through the project and fruits of the labor and
partners that were on display a week and a half ago and will be on display.
Play for many, many years to come. In addition to all of you, I wanna thank
Dr. Freelander and, and Jack Elmer, former
dean and Alice Sharper, a former dean who have mentored us through this project
going back may years and given us advice on how to proceed I wanna thank Joe
Sullivan who, as keeper of the first strings but also as the, the person who
understands all these processes, his work has been a wonderful collaborator on one
keeping all of us, including me under control.
In terms of spending the college's money and the tax payers money but also in
helping us to maintain the vision that went into the design of the building.
And, I've really enjoyed working with Joe in ways that I haven't been able to prior
to this and it's been a, a, an eye opening experience.
You got a good guy there. John Sergio Fisher was our architect.
A gentleman to be sure but also somebody who responded to our needs, understood
them and understood how to translate them into something that was workable.
And, and feasible and just a pleasure to work with him,
My colleagues in theatre and music for their patience, their cooperation.
It's been a long time for all of them and the past few months have been
excruciatingly difficult getting settled back in and doing a gala and getting a
show opening and getting ready for a concert series, etc.
Finally, I wanna make acknowledge one person in particular and that's Kaye
Alexander. Kaye had gave
This incredible support on this project, A lot of good advice
In terms of how to, to, to work it through and, and, and how to think about it and
then bringing it to provision. She deserves a lot of credit for that and
personally that a gratitude on my part. This has been a long journey; this is the
first proposal for this ten years ago. It's been well worth it for the students
over the next decades who were going to benefit from this facility and getting
prepared for careers. Whether it's in theatre or music or in
related fields or even another fields but being able to learn and work with the kind
of facilities And technology and with each other in a
very demanding environment. And for the thousand of community members
who will some through the doors of the Garvin Theater and the Jerkowitz Theater
with two of the finest performance facilities in this part of the country who
will be made better and, and have experiences through this places through
this venues and through the shows and concerts and the other events that will be
there that will enrich their lives and will enrich the life of the community.
Speaking of which I want to remind you that tomorrow night,
we open a brand new play written by Kaye Laris and her father, Philip Laris and
Alice Sharper called Through The Fire. It's about the experiences in Santa
Barbara going back many year of fire going back to Coyote fire.
And the impact this had on various people in the Santa Barbara community.
I saw the workshop and it was part of the workshop last fall.
I have not seen the finished version when in the preview last night.
I heard it's wonderful. >> And I urge you all to come see it.
Thank you. >> Thank you Tom.
>> Tom before you leave you got one more task.
You gotta come and bring the as-built plans.
Hand them to Peter with a red and white ribbon around them so we never have to
worry 35 years from now. >> I don't think I can carry that much
weight. [laugh].
I'm watching them stack up in the stacks. We'll find a pickup truck.
[laugh]. >> The pressure is where you going to put
them. We'll figure that out [laugh].
Alyssa. >> [inaudible] the new building.
>> Herbert is our next speaker. >> Alyssa and Dr.
Barbara Luttito will be next. >> Good afternoon President Cathleen and
members of the Board of Trustees and President Superintendent Freelander.
My name is Alyssa Herbert; I'm the Vice president of the Board of Directors at the
Oaks Parent and Child. Workshop and I just came today Because
item 6.2D on your agenda concerns the instructional services agreement that...
>> Between the four PCWs and the college and I just wanted to let you know that the
four PCWs have reviewed the agreement and have all agreed with it and we want to
specially appreciate and thank President Freelander for your collaboration on
making this happen. So, thank you very much.
We really appreciate it. >> Thank you very much, Barbara.
Barbara Lotito to be followed by Yolan. >> Garcia.
>> Hello. I'm Barbara Lotito and I teach in the
Continuing Education Department. And I teach in Spanish.
I teach bilingual conversation for the workplace and I teach the makeup programs.
I wear several hats but today I am here to give the board and everyone here an idea
of where we are with Pillar Two as part of the Visionary Task Force in response to
request from the Board of Trustees and also to everyone here an idea of what
Pillar Two is all about and how we can be. Preserved and foster.
I have a hand out here that I'd like to pass out.
And there, there are more in the table here and I have more for anyone else who
would like to do it. First of all, I want to thank the board.
For just allowing us to be able to speak freely.
That's an honor and privilege that I value and I also wanted to thank Dr.
Friedlander for creating the visionary task force for inviting us to be part of
it and to go. Even far beyond what we expected and
holding forms and inviting all of the community input.
I think that about continuing it especially needed that connection with the
community that Dr. Friedlander offered.
This is a preliminary report. Our final report we'll be working on in
the next two weeks. I don't wanna give away everything that I
wanted to sort of explain a little bit about the process and tell you where we
are. The process has been.
Based on six different sources of information.
First of all, we have direct input from the community at three different forums
and again, we invited Dr. Friedlander to address in Spanish.
We didn't do it in Spanish, here's a translator but he did a wonderful job.
The Latino community which now comprises 42.7 percent of Santa Barbara's population
and it was just an amazing experience for everyone there.
And we also had a lot of Latinos who were interested in, in Pillar three and the
lifelong learning. It wasn't just focused on working jobs
and, but it was a great opportunity. Since then, for the last six weeks, both
Norma Baena, whose my coach there and myself, have met twice weekly with
different groups from all of the four forums and it, it also has a good cross
section of the college. It's been a true effort of collaboration
which has really warmed my heart. Then we also have funding guidelines from
the State Chancellor's office that define the state priority so I wanna remind
everyone that this is enhanced funding meaning there's money available from this
day as long as we know how to get that and how to keep this programs going.
We also looked at the State of California's 2008 to 2018 occupational
employment projections for Santa Barbara County.
So we're looking for what. What the state is also looking for are
jobs that will have high employability. We don't wanna educate people and then
have them not be able to find jobs. So that's a very, we're a very pragmatic
in Pillar two. And then we also did research incur
offerings by other community college both in the state and another states to see
what's happening. One of the things that differentiate I
think Pillar two and Continuing Education in job preparation is that a response to a
immediate need. It doesn't have to go through long
processes. We are the jobs.
What are the needs, how do we put them together.
And then we also had reports from Dr. Friedlander regarding forms recently with
members of the business community. What do they want?
What are they looking for? So this has been a very exciting
opportunity. A summary of the results, the first part
of what we did was try to define the parameters, where do we fit in.
We have vocational ESL, [inaudible] that fit in.
We have the Credit Program, we have professional development and I will say
again, the collaboration has been phenomenal.
And basically, here's a brief summary of what we've defines.
The population serve are primarily pre-college level students.
They are not ready for college. They need us to help them or they are not
interested at this time in going on to college.
Many of them are employed with what we called full time plus than have families.
And they are often employed in low-paying jobs and they want to do better.
And they are either seeking immediate employment if they're not employed or they
need to be retrained because they've lost their jobs.
They need the following. They need short term courses and that's
one of the things that Dr. Friedlander has urged us to consider.
Quick turnover, we need to be able to schedule things and we have to schedule it
at times that these students can attend basically Friday, Saturday evenings.
Even Sunday classes. One of our meeting meets Friday at six:30
because that's when the students are available.
They need targeted outreach and marketing. So, how do we present this to the public?
They need evaluation of prior academic experience.
I just had a student in my bilingual conversation classes from Wahaca from the
mountains who's never been to school and he wants to do better.
>> The, we also need to be able to test to determine their proficiency levels and
these students need to be advised, coached, enrolled, and tracked in their
progress. And they need to be prepared to enter the
workforce some. >> [cough].
>> From the very first. So, how do we do that?
Well, my own background is I was a 10-year professor at the University of Connecticut
and why do I teach a non-credit, I have no job security, paid a lower rate, because I
love it and because I feel that there is such a need and that we need to meet that
need. And so, the faculty are both academically
qualified And they are also, in addition, were all
versed in methodology in teaching other adults as well as those from different
linguistic and cultural backgrounds. For many, these courses are their first
contact with higher education and it's often the faculty members who wind up
counseling them and helping them along. So, we do a lot.
In addition of course we prepare our lessons.
We schedule our classes not to meet our needs but the student's need.
We record and report attendance and evaluate progress of students.
We actually actively recruit students. I have gone around with my flyers in Isla
Vista and in the East side just to let people know what we're doing so we need
more support with that and we also worked to retain students and find out if they're
not coming. We make calls all of the above and then we
write course outlines and that's where we are in this process of making sure that
these courses are approved and they have to be now part of the certificate
sequence. >> Continually education faculty are paid
a lower hourly rate than their credit counter parts.
>> [cough]. >> We are no longer reimbursed elaborate
for faculty member meetings or other time commitments above the teaching hours.
And we're not included in the college senate except for one representative.
We are contract employees with no job security.
What about the administrative functions? Cuz I know you are looking at how can we
administrate everything. The current Pillar two have the job
readiness and training programs. Administrators needs to recruit,
interview, qualify higher and fire faculty members.
Currently, there are 50 just in this area of job preparation and workforce prep.
>> They need to [inaudible] and train the faculty.
>> Dr. [inaudible].
>> To meet the special needs. >> Forgive me for interrupting but I,
your, your. >> Am I done over?
>> Your three minutes went by a long time ago.
>> Oh, okay. >>, I thought it said five minutes.
I, I, I misunderstood. >> Yeah.
In five minutes and all. If you can wrap it though.
>> I will. Okay.
>> Thank you. >> So there is a lot of administrative
functions that need to be done so I want you to think about all of this.
I've put it in writing so you can have it and be able to make decisions that will
support this very underserved population. I appreciate your kind attention.
Thank you. >> Thank you so much.
>> Alright Yolanda you are next. >> Thank you.
President Haslin. Members of the Board of Trustees, Dr.
Friedlander. It is my pleasure to be here today to
share with you that the Association of Community in Continuing education has
awarded Santa Barbara City College and in particular, recognize Dr.
Friedlander for his initiating the continuing education visioning task force.
So, it's a pleasure to be here to acknowledge that and I wanted all of you
to know as well as the community. As Barbara mentioned, it is a very
inclusive process and the state is eager to look at you know, the results and the.
>> All of this effort so thank you very much for your support and congratulation.
>> Thank you. >> Vanessa Patterson.
Vanessa. .
>> I'm just here Vanessa Patterson, Executive Director of the Foundation for
Santa Barbara City College. I wanted to share two minutes ago I was
going to announce that we had raised 398,000 but I got to now announce we've
raised $402,500 for student success. Change really desperately can change
dramatically but that's before the match so Again, we're in the last four days of
the campaign for Student Success. We'd like to raise an additional $98,000
between now and Monday evening and I think we can do it together.
So I wanted to invite you to Monday evening, a campaign cleanup hosted by the
foundation board from five to eight in the Loria Press Center.
Dinner will be provided and was donated by Frescos and please come and enjoy and make
some calls. I also wanna say that, in this campaign

In the period of just under six weeks. We've actually increased our donor base by
again 100 percent and we've had 33 faculty members set up teams.
And invite people and we've had some major success that's taken place on campus and I
just wanna say thanks you thank you to entire SBCC and together hopefully, 98,000
more and we'll get that entire 750,000 for our students.

Through another faculty members being [inaudible] of their peers as the Annual
Faculty Lecturer. They do it based on feedback they gotten
gave from students on the faculty and based on teaching excellence service to
the college and service to the community in behalf of the college.
And. This year, it's like a Cathy O'Connor as
the as Faculty Lecturer of the Year. It's quite a tribute to Cathy and Cathy
chose to give a speech which, you know, is excellent on To value a physical
education. To give the history of physical education
where it started, how it gotten to the curriculum.
And more importantly, you're wide, what it teaches for all the students in terms of
their performance in. In other classes stated a lot of research
to validate that and in the end it ended the plea against all moving.
And so we all did, we all moved out of the gym so it worked.
We got immediate results. But anyway Kathy I thought I know you
worked, I know you're long preparing for that speech and there is so much content.
But you got your main points across and across well cuz people are still talking
about what they took away from that lecture so on behalf of the college I want
to, do two things. Well, thank you.

of service to San Pablo City College. And, whose doing that?
Okay. >> [inaudible].
>> Dean Alice Sharper who introduced Cosway.
And that is on page six of the top of the page if you're following the agenda.
Good afternoon, Dr. Haslan, members of the board, Dr.
Friedlander, and everyone out there. We are here to honor Cosway Morrison for
her launch [inaudible] here at the college and there are many colleagues of Cosway's
from the library here and it's a, it's a wonderful show of support and celebration
and Cosway's colleagues put together a beautiful statement that I would like to
read to you. Cosway is a person who is both well loved
and respected by her co-workers. Not only does she thoroughly know how to
do her job and probably everybody else's job as well but she is helpful, caring,
and kind-hearted way beyond what her job requires.
She once helped an international student who is being mistreated by her host
family, find a new and better place to live.
This grateful Japanese student continued to keep in contact with Cosway even after
returning to her own country and in fact once flew from Tokyo to Cosway's hometown
just to visit with Cosway when she was on a family vacation in Japan.
On a regular basis Cosway provides meals for students who might otherwise not have
anything to sustain themselves. In one instance she not only encouraged
the students to continue on with his education but she make sure that he did so
by driving him to the university where he had an entrance interview scheduled.
The student is now completing his first year in his field of study at that same
university. Cosway doesn't wait for people to ask her
for help. She seeks out whoever might be in need.
And follows through in any way that she can.
>> We're very grateful that you're with us and congratulations on your longevity in
25 years at Santa Barbara City College. [sound].
Would you like to say a few words? [sound].
>> Thank you so much, it's been a pleasure working with the great place, great place.

responsibilities to heart and has been working on.

We all have great employees but these are the best for this year.
Thank you. >> [sound].
Thank you so much, Lyz. We come to that part of our agenda where
it would be appropriate to move and go into close session for the purpose of
considering the two items on our agenda. Is there such a motion?
Okay, motions made. Is there a second?
All in favor say hi. >> Hi.
>> Oppose no. Motion is carried.
I will do my very best to come back to you very soon in session and you're no doubt
here for, for an announcement. Last, last fall.
This board of trustees set up to. To create a process that would be
inclusive encompassing. Positive.
And it was to conduct a search for the next Superintendent President.
The first thing we did was to engage the services of a, of a professional search
firm. We interviewed various groups of people.
We settled on the group that we thought would most effectively represent us.
We hired Stanton Chase to go out and scour the country for the best possible people
who would represent this college as its superintendent president.
We ask them not to go after just people who are looking for jobs.
We asked them to go after people who had jobs and we wanted.
Without apology to steal them way from effectively doing a job wherever they
were. The second thing we did was to engage a, a
community search committee. Made up f various aspects of, of this
college community. Faculty, staff, management,
representatives of the, of the foundation for Santa Barbara City College.
People from the community, students, continuing education, credit.
Fifteen people met and worked tirelessly. To get the job done.
Stanton Chase was able to recruit nearly 40 candidates for our job.
They turned over to the search committee. More than half of their, of their
selectees and this committee chaired by Dean Evans and Ron Gallow worked intensely
to narrow the field even further. Ultimately, they were able to give us four
candidates and I can remember when they came to the board, they said, these are
excellent candidates, Anyone of whom could do this job.
And I thought at first wow, that's cool. That's a nice problem to have and as I
thought about it further I came to realize that they had really given us an
impossible task because they are right. These were excellent candidates and we had
to choose one. >> The, the difficulty of which is, is
epitomized by the fact that we met most of the days on Saturday, we met again today.
[cough]. We, we.
>> Monday. >> And Monday, yes.
One forgets. >> [laugh].
>> So we worked very, very hard and we finally have come to a decision.
The and I need to, I need to report out of close session.
Two decisions. One is the decision.
To approve a contract. That will come back to us on May tenth.
Because frankly, it wasn't ready to be, to be agenized for today's meeting and so,
it'll be finished on May tenth and the second is to announce to you.
>> Of the selection of Lori Gaskin. [sound].
And we wait just a minute. I want you to repeat what you just did.
>> [laugh]. >> Because Lori, Lori is a, a going to
come on. >> No, I think.
[sound]. >> Should be able to see us.
>> And she's gonna see us and we're gonna see her.
[inaudible]. [inaudible].
>> Oh, this is the part where technology does its thing.
>> [laugh]. >> This is where.
>> Where best people. >> Okay, you see me?
>> No. >> No, we can't.
>> We can hear you though. >> [inaudible].
>> Oh, you can see. >> You can see us?
>> [inaudible]. >> Oh, there you are.
>> [inaudible] the lights quickly. >> [laugh].
>> Yay. >> Yay.
>> [sound]. >> I take it that's a good news.
>> [laugh]. >> Lori, it is my privilege to, to, to
officially invite you to serve. Santa Barbara City College as our next
Superintendent President. You're supposed to say something.
[laugh]. I'm, I'm so grateful to the board for
showing me this vote of confidence. Please don't tell me I'm on some high-def,
very large screen that my [laugh] on the wall because you'll see tears in my eyes
but I'm so grateful to the entire board. The entire institution I'm, I'm built with
such humility and traumatic eagerness to serve our students.
And Real pride and now fulfilling a long time dream of being able to join the City
College family which I've wanted to do for a long time.
And certainly unbridled optimism for us and our future.
I am I'm just ecstatic. It's you know I'm gonna date myself but
you know the, the great commercial, I love this commercial and I'm not even a fan or
pro football. >> But remember when a team would win a
Super Bowl and somebody would say, you know, you just won the Super Bowl, what
are you going to do now? And I feel I just won the Super Bowl and
I'm gonna go out and buy some red, white and black clothes.
>> [laugh]. [sound].
>> Thank you, Lori. And, you know, you might go get a suitcase
or something and. >> Start back in.
>> [laugh]. >> I, I would love to.
That, that truly would be an honor to start packing,
Absolutely. >>, Invite us folks by their bookstore.
>> [laugh]. >> [inaudible] come out and we'll keep
that [inaudible] absolutely. >> [laugh].
>> Yeah. We need the money.
>> Yeah. >> Thank you, we'll get back to our
meeting now. >> Thank you, Lori.
>> [sound]. >> [inaudible].
Thank you. I'll see you soon.
Gonna come down and I'll see you soon. >> [sound].
The, the vote on, on the contract was unanimous.
The vote on the... Selections was a five, two.
With trustees Vegas and Derkowitz not, not in agreement to the selection.
Of the other five were in agreement to this selection.
And I think this is an indication of how tough, how though, how really though this
decision was and I think that is High praise for the other candidates as well.
And I hope that, that gets back to them because I mean it with all my heart.
Okay. We move on to the agenda which has been
interrupted many number of times and if there are those of you who like to go away
I can understand why. But if you like to stay for the exciting
elements that are about to happen you're welcome to stay as well.
We move unto item 1.5 which has to do the approval of the minutes.
Regular meeting of March twenty-second is there a motion to approve.
>> Motion is made. Is there a second.
>> Second. >> Second.
Morris Jurkowitz. Are there are there comments about
minutes, have any corrections, yes? >> I have a minor amendment I just like to
clarify and now I had lost my place. On page five at the top where we have the
statement that the musicians under Professional Volunteers were removed from
the coned agenda and the will be considered different action item.
I just like to clarify by adding at the request of trustee Croninger because her
husband is one of the volunteers. That was the reason for that.
Okay, without objection that is added. Other, other concerns or questions about
minutes? >> Hearing none, the minutes are approved
without objection. And what extension?
>> Two extensions. >> Two extensions.
Okay, good. Communications, the report by the academic
senate. President Dean Nevins.
[laugh]. You have to follow that.
[laugh]. Dean again from...
>> From the bottom of my heart. Thank you for chairing our coach chairing
committee and I hope you pass on. I, I was wondering if Ron would be here
but you guys superb job making life really difficult for us.
>> [laugh]. >> Thank you.
The committee did a fantastic job. Everyone there on the committee was
wonderful. It was a pleasure to work with Ron and
also, all the people in the committee were just so involved to the process.
Everyone did their homework, everyone is engaged and when we were discussing the
different candidates, I look forward. With great interest to everyone comments
because people share insights I even thought of and you know your, your
thoughts would shift during the conversations and that's a very high mark
for committee so people [inaudible] I was honored to serve on a committee.
It was really wonderful and many people who would serve in many committee said
this was the most collaborative committee that I ever worked on.
So, it was, it was a wonderful process so thank you very much for the opportunity.
And as I tumbled of my iPad here a little bit To, to, to probably send it.
Oh, by the way [inaudible] here. She said no one danced during her
presentation. I was dancing.
It was really sad and you don't wanna see it but [laugh] I was attempting to dance.
So President has the members of the board Superintendent President Jack Friedlander.
So we're, the faculty is kind of where like the horses running for the barn now
because we can see that it, it's gonna be finals week.
People are gonna be focused on kind of end of the semester, getting their classes
together, making sure students have feedback and getting prepared for finals
week so things are really moving along and the faculty are really engaged in their
process. Since our, since the last report the
senate's only met once and the reason why was we had a wonderful presentation by
Cathy O'Connor over senate meetings. And then also, we had an issue where there
was a scheduling conflict where [inaudible] celebration over at the senate
and unfortunately, that meant that we were losing quite a few senators.
And so, we're gonna see some people we decided it probably be a good idea to have
a vote specially on plus or minus grading missing five or six senators so we'll move
it to next week. However, we have been working our
[inaudible] government process has been tagging along.
We have approved the rankings through the PNR and ITC.
So, planning of resources came for the recommendations for expenditures and so
did the Social Technology Committee and I wanna thank both those chairs PNR Chair
came on that and also ITC's Chair [inaudible] Vasquez for doing a fantastic
job cutting down the expenses because they have a huge number of requests initially
and I got together individual with the chairs and just really cut those request
down to their bones of things that we need to keep the college going.
So I would thank them for their work. It was an awful lot of work by both their
committees and both their chairs to get us to a place where we can at least seriously
consider addressing those real needs you know very, very tight, budgetary time as
you all know. We also are working on their program
discontinuance policy. What we decided to do was it was you know
originally kind of accelerated the process a bit.
But then it turns out from where we are right now, our current process will be
sufficient but we are going to work towards improving the process and by the
end of the fall, we should have a completed process with the review.
So, as I go through consultation and other groups too and of course, obviously, the
board but we'll have something for you. And basically, the idea is to improve what
we have rather than just tart things off from [inaudible].
And we have looked from a lot of contingency policies and in particular,
obviously, we are looking at contingency policy followed by Lori's institution
since we're bringing up with her. >>, And that's really all the report is
for now. Any questions?
>> Thank you so much. >> Thank you.
>> Jj is here? Don't trip.
>> He is not here [inaudible]. >> [laugh] Don't trip.
>> I've got big balance. I haven't slept yet but I've got good
balance. Are we doing all.
>> [sound] insurance also so. >> We have confidence.
[laugh]. >> No, no, no.
You don't have confidence, don't shoot. >> Well, a confidence I'll be taken care
of. Members of the Board, President Haslan
Superintendent. President Dr.
Friedlander. Good afternoon.
It's quite a meeting. I have a lot to take back to our meeting.
The, we're coming to an end of the semester we first wanna share a couple of
things that we're doing in order to expand our presence in our community not only as
not students but by the student body representing Santa Barbara City College.
We've been participating, volunteering as a group in Earth Day and also in Relay for
Life and I think it's important to voice out that we are willing even though we are
full time students and taking responsibility in committees or anything
else, we can still do a lot more. We're not holding a meeting this Friday.
We. That we are attending General Assembly.
Lot of other members are leaving today to for all of the community college at
students that wanna scream at each other, we're gonna do that this weekend.
All in good terms of course. This last Friday, we have a meeting with
the Dean. He came to our meeting presenting the, I
wanna say a problem but an issue that we wanted to resolve as a team.
We wanted to get together and form a forum.
As you might have already know, the cancellation form that was [inaudible].
On Friday centers got together and we organized a menu of ours, fliers, we
wanted to send out on campuses not to, what we're trying to focus on is an
organization of call coming together, collaborating with each other and having
those three presentations. One from DIA, from budget, and the
presentation that we're gonna give from senate.
And it would have been a great process when we're looking possibly doing future
to have more collaboration from the students and faculty working together.
Putting these minds together, working as a team not only from the top but also from
the bottom and giving those ideas sometimes I never thought of.
We're also in; this is the week for elections.
On Monday you will know the results and the final on presidents those who will run
for officer positions for next year... >> And, other than that if there's any
questions for me, just kinda informal presentation as kinda last minutes are.
>> [laugh]. >> Great.
>> Yeah. Thank you so much.
>> Thank you. [inaudible].
>> [cough]. Liz, do you have something additional?
You do. Darn.
[laugh]. Dr.
Haslan members of the board I wanted to thank the board for the opportunity serve
on search committee for the Superintendent President.
I wanted to thank Dean Evans and Ron for their chairing.
I think they did an excellent job. They, they let everyone have their say and
they listened to everyone and they were able to work at, help us work through
whichever agreements or disagreements we may have had with the, all the candidates
and we actually did see all the candidates information so we have all that.
I know a topic. I wanted to thank Joe Sullivan and Dr.
Friedlander for the budget forms we've had.
I think it was a fiscal committee at the board that I attended where some of the
board members didn't feel that maybe a college community understood that we were
on a physical crisis. I think after this rigid forms if I can
let you know that I think everybody understands that now.
So, hopefully, we can work collaborative, collaboratively to reach some sort of
solution to the issue but I wanted to thank the VP and the President for the
forms that they've had and I guess they have one more.
But I think that was in order to go a lot of work and out them together but I think
that will really help the community to understand what we're up against.
>> Thank you, Liz. Jack?
>> Okay, And you reminded me three times that we have to be out of here seven,
seven:10. So I'll keep my remarks of one of other
things very brief. >> Relatively speaking.
[laugh]. >> [laugh].
>> Forget your relatives, just be brief. >> Yeah, yeah, yeah.
I'll call, I'll talk to my relatives and that, that will be brief Yeah, you know,
Cathy O'Connor gave a faculty lecture and most number you were there which is, I
appreciated that. On April thirteenth, a couple of Fridays
ago, we had [inaudible]. Art installation.
We've got [inaudible], we had, you know, function.
Then we had the annual student art show. We gave out how many scholarships we gave
out and award the students and the work is terrific.
The students did and I was watching when I was there how many pieces had already been
bought, you know, off the walls, you know, in that, red marker no longer for sale.
But, the work is just, just terrific. And also, Dane Goodman's last Gallery cuz
he's retiring. He's done one heck of a job putting that
gallery in the map Yeah [inaudible] in reopening and it's already been mentioned
but I know I talked to And Oscar our box office supervisor and on Monday the phone
is ringing off the hook. People buying season tickets and tickets
for the season so it worked and it was a wonderful three days on April seventeenth,
the [inaudible] rotary every year has a lunch meeting at the college and they
always give scholarships to students who are [inaudible] technology education
programs. First they start out with two, three, last
couple of year it was five, five. This year it was eight scholarships of a
thousand dollars each so it's really generous.
And, and that was very successful. The pleasure forms have been graded and we
have the last one tomorrow, very well intended.
The Lancaster's Speech Tournament was last Monday night and students.
The final with just grades bridges on Generation Y.
And Just hearing them talking about their generation and critique usually they're
pretty hard themselves. I thought I was in touch but I realized
and so that she's had no idea what was going on.
Usually, eye opening for me. The speeches were very good and yesterday,
you know, we had, we recognized 31 faculty members who have been teaching at the
college 25 years or more and trustee Livingston was there and appreciate her
being there and it's fun good event and, And just amazing how the staff here but
just. With the start of this college, you know
that. And soon new programs are just arriving
and how engaged some of what's in store. It's just wonderful.
And then just before this event, it's a nice meeting.
The EOPS opened up their new computer tutorial labs.
And Marsha Wright reported to me that this semesters [inaudible] finals exams yet.
We've got 600 unduplicated take advantage those labs.
They have already out in 4,000 hours so I commented that probably by in the finals,
8,000 hours. We have [inaudible] the students.
But it's just marvelous, you know, and so we have [inaudible] Marsha cuz she had the
dream seven or eight years ago and she won't let go of it so we made it happen
but it wouldn't have happen. I have nothing for her and We had
Surprising as well I've heard about it many times.
That our college. Was once again selected.
In as top ten percent of the community college nationwide for the new [inaudible]
word competition so now we have until May twenty-fifth to get an application in to
be considered. You know?
The next round. So, we're going to repeat the whole
process over the last year. But the only, two other schools from
California where I'm selected but with the only school in California might have a few
nationwide they were invited back twice. So it's really again, a tribute to what
the college is doing. So that sum my report.
There's a lot. I mean, I can't believe all the activities
are taking place. In fact.
We're having great guest lecturers bringing people in the community their
part, they are finding out who and what big names in the fields that are here and
then getting the, to come. And part of the arts and lectures as easy
as me getting speakers. And I just, they are all are having the
clubs are having recognition events, honor events.
So, the dream in many years ago, the vision was to have student life in this
campus and I think we have student life. And So, it's just a wonderful, wonderful
environment. So, I'm happy that you selected Lori
Gaskin. Yes, you do a great job and you know,
college would be in good hands. It was a good choice and thank you for
doing that. [inaudible].
Item E report from board members, committee chairs.
>> Anybody have. >> Yeah.
>> Just briefly, I just wanted the fact, thank Joe and Jack also for the budget
forms and getting the information out to the college community We have a big job in
front of us and it was Michael. When I came on the Board here to help with
the transparency and I hope that we're succeeding all of us in that goal, Also
there are so many people that came to the study session a few days ago and that was
really encouraging 'cause again the more people we can get that understand the
issues in front of us, we'll get have more opportunity for creative solutions and
watches a participatory governance work. So, thank you for your attention there.
Also since we're talking about money, I thought I could put in one more plug for
the foundation's campaign for student success.
98,000 more dollars to reach the goal of 500,000 and I hope all the board members
will join. Me and making a pledge towards this, this
drive. And you know how often.
We're on TV right? Maybe they could roll a number and say
this would be the time to pull out your credit card then bet you can call the
foundation at 730-4401 and make that contribution.
That would be great to do it by April thirtieth and you'll get the part of the
matching gift. And $100 buys a textbook, a $100 pays for
student for one week in a summer program that introduces at [inaudible] to the
college experience. So these are things we wanna accomplish in
our committee and thank you [inaudible]. >> Can you tell me that number again?
I didn't quite get it. >> Yeah sure.
I don't know if it's rolling across the bottom of the screen.
It's 730. 4401.
And let's all participate in, in doing this for our community.
Thank you. >> I take it there's no probation against
calling twice if. >> So you can call twice or you could just
double up on the credit card. >> Other [laugh].
Other reports from board members? [inaudible]...
>> Okay. We move on to item two, governing board.
The first is resolution number 35. Sue, will you walk us through this one?
>> [sound]. >> [inaudible].
>> Should take a walk. >> [laugh].
>> She's been working very hard. >> This is a resolution that authorizes
district elections and I have, I have the. >> Excuse me, thank you.
I didn't realize I was going to speak to this one but I, I think I can and if not,
somebody will either drag me off the stage or correct me.
This is required as a part of the process of upcoming Elections and consolidation
the, there are two. Let me talk about 35 and 36.
Okay. So 35 is an order for, for elections for
three members of this governing board. I think that one is really
straightforward. The one that cause the little confusion
and has been modified in the packet is. 36 and 36 is a little confusing because we
have a board policy that does exactly what this resolution says where it supposed to
resolve to do so what we have done is modified it so that you are resolving and
the key seems to be to get a vote board member by board member on this so you are
resolving that You have a board policy which addresses this and I think the value
of doing the resolution in this particular way is that it reminds everybody.
>> That, that policy is there so we've done it.
We have it on our books but we are reminding the county that we resolved.
>> This is board policy 2100, is that correct?
>> Yes. Yes and it is specifically referenced.
I think you should all have received a modified version of.
>> We did. >> Okay.
Excellent. Okay.
>> So we're asked to approve the following resolution.
If I am correct this is where a is section 13307 of elections code of the State of
California requires this board to adopt certain policies in regard to statements
of candidates who run for office as members of the governing board of the
district now therefore be in resolved. But this governing board does hereby
determine that board policy 2100, which is the one I referenced.
Board election shall remain in full force and in effect until rescinded by this
board. >> Is there a motion to, to support this
resolution? Motion is made.
>> Moved. >> By, okay and second it.
So discussion of the resolution. >> Marty second it.
Okay, is there discussion? If not, all in favor?
>> [inaudible]. >> Oh, you're so right.
>> Yeah. >>, [inaudible].
>> Aye. >> [inaudible].
>> Aye. >> [inaudible].
>> Aye. >> [inaudible].
>> Aye. >> [inaudible].
>> Aye. >> [inaudible].
>> Aye. >> [inaudible].
>> Aye. >> [inaudible].
>> Aye. Okay.
Does that, that takes, that's resolution number 36.
What do we do about resolution number 35? >> It's on the agenda as a separate item.
>> [inaudible]. >> Okay.
>> Thank you. >> All right.
That is the order of election. Resolution ordering governing board member
selection and notice to consolidate and you have that resolution in front of you.
This is what it looks like, okay? >> Uh-huh.
>> So motion to, pass this. Marcia move second.
>> Second. >> Seconds.
Discussion. >>, Hearing none, we move to vote.
All in favor say aye. >> Oops.
>> Resolutions. >> Oops.
>> [inaudible]. >> I will remember one of these days.
>> Trustee Adams. >> Aye.
>> Trustee Bloom. >> Aye.
>> Trustee Coringer. >> Aye.
>> Trustee Melbourne. >> Aye.
>> Trustee Jurkowitz. >> Aye.
>> Trustee Marissa. >> Aye.
>> Trustee [inaudible]. >> Aye.
>> Trustee [inaudible]. >> Aye.
Okay and the motion carries. >> Resolution number 37.
>> This is declaring classified school employee week in the Santa Barbara
Community College District. And it indicates that, that will be held
on May twentieth through twenty-sixth and we're asking that you resolve and
recognize this is classified school employee week.
>> Ice cream social again? >> I don't need to embarrass her but
sometimes they've done a wonderful ice cream social as a way of recognizing this.
>> Uh-huh. >> Could we, could we move to pass on the
basis of the. >> You know, I would encourage that and I
like pistachios please. >> Mm-hm.
>> Okay, is there a motion to approve this resolution?
[inaudible] who it moves. >> John [inaudible].
Is there discussion of the resolution? Hearing none we move to a roll call vote.
>> [inaudible]. >> I.
>> [inaudible]. >> I.
>> [inaudible]. >> I.
>> [inaudible]. >> I.
>> [inaudible]. >> I.
>> [inaudible]. >> [inaudible] >> I.
>> Christi [inaudible]. >> I.
Alright. >> Motion carries 2.4 board policies.
Sue, are you gonna help us with those? >> Those are two very straightforward
policies that were discussed at a study session earlier and I would submit them
for your approval. They relate to campus security and access
and to off campus student organizations and these are the beginnings of a series
of policies new and modified that we will bring you as a result of modifications to
federal legislation the Cleary Act. >> These are included as attachment 2.4.
Can we take these together? >> Yes.
>> Is there a motion to approve these two board policies?
>> [inaudible]. >> Okay, so you're second.
>> Second, okay discussion. All in favor, say I.
>> I. >> [inaudible], abstentions, motion is
carried unanimously. >> Item three.
But then you're already at the podium. >> I've looked ahead with that.
I might as well step here in rate. I have my usual set of edits.
For these items so on page three under certificated faculty appointments.
Clark Hochstetler, counselor in DOPS, DSPS.
I wanna make a modification to the start date.
That would be August sixth rather than August twenty-third.
On page four. Certificated faculty change of
appointment. This relates to the parent-child
workshops. The IA has taken great exception to the
language that I used here to, to try to describe and clarify.
What the basis of change was. This is an increase in compensation and
there's a change that is driven by curriculum modification that extended the
work here and has extended the work load. I think the, we're just gonna have to
agree or disagree about whether it's the schedule or not but that's not the point.
So, I think what I would like to do is modify this to say that we're, this is the
modification of the work load and work calendar that was previously negotiated
with the instructors association in June 2010 based on a percentage of selected.
Portions of scheduled ten and with additional rules for rating and in
advancement negotiated and that we're now moving that to a work, year work load that
is reflective simply by looking at 80 percent of scheduled ten class.
2-6. Sorry for that complicated explanation but
I've also explained to you the rational for this item.
And then on page five under classified appointments, the buyer for textbooks.
I'm pleased to announce that, that position will be filled by Andrea Inks
wait 26/6 date of start date is May first, 2012.
But I also needed to tell you that we didn't know this at the time because we
didn't know who was going to fill the position but it now qualifies to be moved
down one item as a promotion. And, I think that does it.
Yeah. Okay, so I submit this to you for your
approval. Your motion to approve the [inaudible]
only consent counter. Okay, motion moves to second.
Okay, second discussion. >>, Almost says some rejoin us.
Hearing now, we move to vote on favor. Say aye.
>> Aye. >> Oppose nay.
Extensions. No extensions, alright.
It's unanimous. >> I have an action item for you.
>> Okay. >> Okay this is to recognize formally by
getting good enough checks that we gave earlier.
The outstanding classified employees and honorable mention classified employees...
>> I would submit that for your approval. >> Okay, where are you at the agenda?
>> I am at the very bottom of page eleven. >> Oh, that's right...
>> 3.2. >> Okay, and you need a motion to approve.
>> Please. >> Is there a motion to approve?
The move, Louis moves down to second discussion.
>> On favor say I. >> I.
>> Opposed may. Other abstentions.
Motions passed. >> And I have another option item for you
and that is B, which is the approval of the working schedules for the eleven and
twelve months certificated educational administrators and the ten months
certificated faculty. Motion to approve.
Okay. Let's all move to the second [inaudible]
seconds. Is there a discussion of this?
Marty? >> Did you have your [inaudible]?
>> No. >> Okay.
>> [laugh]. >> Okay.
I Hear no discussion. >> Not yet, verbally.
>> [laugh]. >> Yes, I know.
Your hand is still up. All right I hear now.
All in favor say aye. >> Aye.
>> Aye. >> Oppose nay.
>> Other abstentions. There are not.
Okay. >> Thank you.
>> You're welcome. >> [inaudible].
>> Oh, yes. >> I'll let you do it.
[inaudible]. Before you get seat.
I wrote a note to you the other day and but I wanna do so publicly.
I want to express my sincere appreciation and I, and on behalf of the board you, you
did huge amounts of work on behalf of the search process and...
>> I, you know, I, anytime I was, I was in Dallas to where we were you had, you had
an answer and I, I really want you to know that we appreciate it so much.
Thank you, Sue. >> Thank you.
[sound]. >> And thank you Marty for the prompt,
[laugh], or Lisa for the prompt. >> [laugh].
Okay education programs. [laugh].
. Good evening, President Haslan, members of
the Board and Dr. Friedlander.
I'll begin with item 4.2 since we have already done item 4.1.
And that is to recommend approval of new programs, course and program modifications
and program deactivation's from the last three meetings of the curriculum advisory
committee and you'll note that it's a very long list and I should just say that when
we removed the plus hours from all of our classes that the department chair has to
go in and do a tremendous amount of work of make.
In the program modifications and that's why the list very long.
Okay. Questions of Marilyn.
>> Is there a motion to approve? Motions made to approve second question?
Hearing none, we move to vote. All in favor say aye.
>> Aye. >> Oppose nay, abstentions, motion
carried. >> Next is item 4.3 which is to recommend
the approval to an increasing student health fee.
At the April sixth meeting of the Associated Student Senate, they reviewed
and endorsed a motion. >> [cough].
>> To increase the mandatory health fee by $one from $seventeen to $eighteen
effective fall. 2012.
The last increase was in spring 2008 and the summer session fee which will also
increase by $one will not increase until the next summer session in.
2013. >> And you say that the Student Center
approved this, this increase? >> That's correct.
>> Can you tell me what was the rational for?
>> Everything has gone up. [laugh].
>> Why do I ask? Why do I ask?
>> Scott may have more information. >> We're actually in support of that
primarily due to the benefits who would extend to students.
Some students can't come at the current hours that they're open so we were in
contact with the health department and seeing what was cost been through and also
some of the medicine. After reviewing that we found it to be a
good thing so. >> Uh-huh.
Well, thank you Scott. >> Uh-huh.
>> Okay, is there a motion to approve? Motion is made.
Is there a second? >> And second.
All in favor say aye. >> Aye.
>> Aye. >> Opposed nay, abstentions, motion is
carried. >> Item 4.4.
I am very pleased to present our presenters for the Get focused, Stay
focused progression in the Education Program and with Dr.
Jack Friedlander, Dr. Diane Hollems and a very new Dr.
Lauren Wintermeyer. She just received her doctoral degree.
>> This maybe her first presentation as a doctor.
>> Uh-huh. At this hour.
Pay attention to the title of this. Stay focus, stay focus.
[laugh]. So the.
This is. An incredible initiative.
It's college working in partnership with the cafeteria Unified High School District
in Santa Barbara Unified High School District and it involves having all of
their ninth Graders take a, a course start developing their ten year educational and
career plans. And now, we're getting.
Community support from the teachers and the principals and the superintendents,
you know, superintendents to put the modules in the tenth grade in eleventh
grade and twelfth grade. And the purpose of this is the students to
start and actually it's, eighth grade summer bridge program going into ninth
grade. With the start exploring where are the
current opportunities in which they're available, they are interested in.
Then they say well what. Do I have to do educationally to achieve
that was career objectives this would drive our educational plan.
Then in tenth grade. Are they That sixteen weeks of modules
that again it broaden the range of career opportunities to look at.
They update their ten year plan and their educational plan.
So the educational plan now is driven by where they wanna be in terms of their
careers. Then it do the same thing eleventh grade
and twelfth grade but each time they gain, the activities in Lauren and Diane will go
over these activities. They are getting to the process of
selecting the college they wanna go to In major in getting the application process
in, looking for financial aid, learn about financial literacy and doing everything
they need to do. They're also doing a career explorations
having a few from the business community to talk to them about the various career
opportunities giving them opportunities to actually visit businesses.
So you understand what it is they think they're interested in.
It's a very different model. This would be a whole [inaudible].
That the students know what their goal is. Then, then I plan to get there.
They'll be more driven and motivated to achieve that goal.
And. So when they come to college, they're
college ready. Meaning they don't need mediation and
they're career ready knowing what the area they wanna major in which any can change
but at least they have an idea. Let me tell you why it's so important.
Nationwide and community colleges 60 percent of the students that enter
community colleges needs some form of mediation in reading, writing, and or
math. California, it's over 70%, our college
70%. The cost This states.
$Two billion a year to provide mediation. If high school students going into
community colleges, two billion dollars a year.
Second thing is inform declare major what the research shows over and over again is
that students who form the major and have an idea what they wanna do in terms of
career wise and the first entry in college whereby in the end of the first year
college, it will be more likely to return a second year.
In California Community College is nationwide.
Over 25 percent of the students who are full time students, the goal of the degree
certificate of transfer don't return for second year.
That cost. In state of California, a 130 million
dollars investment in terms of What they pay for education in community colleges,
$130 million is a lost investment cuz they're not coming back and they don't
come back within six years and that figure is based on.
The, having a clear college and post-secondary education path on behalf of
going on but the thing is what they learned in ninth grade, tenth grade,
eleventh grade is haven't modified that when it get exposed to, maybe I'm
interested in something else. They don't know how to upgrade their
Career plan and their educational plan accordingly.
And, they also wanna know in high schools exactly what course they have to take to
achieve their, their goals when they go to college.
And, they can enroll and do a [inaudible] program while they're taking classes and
get up to a year's worth of College credit done was still in high school.
Year is most students you say well, what you wanna do next?
I don't know I wanna go to college. What you wanna do?
I don't know. We want a major and I think this where I
figured it out. Here is driven just the opposite.
You know what you wanna do, what majors will get you there?
What colleges offers that best major? For you to get to where you wanna go.
So it's a very different way of looking at things.
So, that's the goals of this program. The outcomes are on the slide there
students start off in ninth grade exploring three careers in every year
after that, to keep on adding more careers, to get financial literacy
training to get, create this online career and education plan.
They learn about career opportunities and pathways.
They start their planning processes for applying for college in taking the right
courses to take that will characterize their degree in college.
And, they have opportunities to Participate in doing all program and also
we'll talk about this later, there's a hand off to see the college.
If they still need mediation, they're going to express excess program and get it
done in the semester. If they don't they go to transfer assessed
programs and they all get finish. We tell them to follow our advice in two
years or less and that linkage is there. So in that link it starts on eleventh
grade, twelfth grade so this is gonna be huge Because what the data show for
California if every year we produced one percent more students, two percent more
students who. With Associate degree and one percent more
of students who got Bachelor degree. They would to generate 40 billion dollars
economic activity for state. 1.2 billion dollars in increased tax
revenues and 725,000 new jobs. Because they have the skills and
qualifications needed, you know, to grow jobs in the state.
So this return the taxpayer is huge and we feel that this is such a transformative
effort cuz one separate school say. You get financial aid or get scholarship
and finishes and begin campus tours but you're not going to curriculum.
Here we get a cooperation of oldest teachers in all of school districts and go
into the ninth grade, tenth grade, eleventh grade, and twelfth grade
curriculum plus the hand off is, I don't know if any other community can pull this
off, they were pulling this off and so I contribute to Diane and Lauren who I'm
turning this over to and the high school principals and the superintendents are
just been terrific on this partnership so that I think who's up, who's up?
Diane? [cough].
Good evening, members of the board. President Haslan, thank you for giving us
this opportunity. Jack did a wonderful job in, in sort of
previewing what's going on with this initiative and my task is to tell you how
it came about just for a couple of minutes.
Because as Jack just mentioned, it's pretty remarkable that in this community.
All ninth graders are doing this course and have opportunity for college credit,
you know, that we have all of this by end and it didn't just happen.
We've been building the dual enrolment program robustly since 1998.
I've been involved with it since then and so, it's, you know, we've incrementally
been building relationships, that's what it's all about.
So, that now, you know, after these amount of years.
You know, we're sort of like one big happy family.
We're not always happy but, you know, we're, we operate as.
A seamless educational system and that just doesn't happen in very many places to
the degree that it happens here. So, that's the reason that we can move
forward with an initiative like this. The other thing that's helped us is grant
money, you know, we love grant money. And a lot of times we get grants and, you
know, we'll do some initiative that sort of it's nice while we're doing it and then
it, it kind of goes away. The good thing about this is that.
This initiative is systematic. The school district, the Santa Barbara
Unified School District is considering making this.
Ninth grade course or graduation requirement.
Well that's a systematic change and so thanks to the James Irvine Foundation
which gave us a significant grant for their concurrent courses initiative.
That was a three year grant. It was a primarily focused on career
technical but this ninth grade course that you're gonna hear about from Lauren really
focuses on career technical it is. In reality a career technical course
itself. And that initiative allowed us to get.
Textbooks and supplies and do the professional development that's.
Needed for this. The other grant that keeps us going is the
SB70 initiative from the Chancellor's office.
That's also focused on career technical and you know to state wide grant.
The newest legislation is SB1070 which is going through now so those funds has
allowed us to do this so back in 2009 I went to San Francisco and saw a
presentation about a curriculum and There are, are many curriculum out there.
There's a lot to choose from but this particular curriculum have this electronic
ten year plan associated with her and, you know, that's one of the things that made
it very different. And so.
I was excited about it and came back and because we had already have these
relationships being built and ongoing, we are able to call together 30 local K12
administrators and faculty counselors, a few bar folks to a meeting in May of 2009
and we, you know, they got a presentation of what this is about and they got excited
and so, by fall of 2009, we had Carpentaria High School in Dos Pueblos
willing to pilot. Into this kind of remarkable and it's just
kind of built from there. The course that we use for the ninth Grade
course is Pro 138D which just means it's a three unit course in personal planning.
And, the credit it, it's optional for the students, you know, all these students are
getting the course and if they would like to Complete the paper work and up for dual
enrollment credit. It's a pass no pass grading.
They're ninth graders we realize this then they do and so you can see on this slide
if you look at the last bullet so far about 1000 students have opted for that
dual enrollment credit. All students, all ninth graders at
Carpentaria San Marcos sent us and Santa Barbara high school are doing this.
Those publish has about five sections. Those publish has many initiative what's
going on so they're a little bit different but they are involved with us to the same
level All students, to the same degree, High school teachers, counselors and
administrators are now getting together. In fact, we're meeting at seven tomorrow
morning. All the principals are going.
So, you know, there's just been a lot of engagement cooperation to a meeting as we
talk about implementing this modules. There actually, they're not sixteen weeks,
they're sixteen hours. In each of grad.
Ten, eleven, twelve. Sixteen hour modules that will provide the
follow up curriculum because, okay we do a course in ninth grade but then what?
You know they forgot about it or you know kind of goes by the way side and we
realize that. It doesn't work; there need to be a follow
up. Lauren will talk more about that.
So we're meeting to pray on the implementation of ten grade.
Sixteen hour modules for tenth grade so we're meeting tomorrow.
That follow curriculum will allow them to retouch their 10-year plan.
And they can change their mind but they're learning how to set goals.
Do critical thinking and they're making that educational plan.
So our hope is, by the time they reach our doors, they're not just checking a box or
a major because I think they have to. They really know what they're doing and
that will inform all of our good title five initiatives that were going on like
Jack said. The other good thing is that modules.
That are being created are tied to the new common course standards.
So, that's a very attractive to K12. We hear more and more about that and
another reason for their [inaudible]. So, now I'm gonna turn it over to Lauren
who will give you just a few more details. Good evening President Haslan, members of
the board. Thank you for your time and attention this
evening. I wanna talk a little bit about why this
initiative is so important for our students and I come to you with a
background of K12 educator. I'm a master in counseling and now I have
the owner being an administrator here at city college and working interestingly
mentally within our school districts and with the college to look at how to create
a seamless transition for our students. We realize how important the
implementation of the common core standards are particularly because they
speak to student's career and college readiness.
The old model was, pick a college based on location.
We know students still come to our beautiful campus for that.
But what used to happen was the student would come and explore, maybe try out some
classes. They don't really have that leisure any
longer ad it used to take students maybe a couple of years to pick a major.
Often times they've graduate with a wonderful degree in Philosophy and maybe
not know how to use it effectively to find a career.
So, we're, we're really reverse that model to say what are the careers that meet with
your strength and interest. Now as Jack said, how do we find out the
major that will. Prepare you adequately and appropriately
for that career and then how do we back room that defining an appropriate
institution that needs your family, needs your interest or budget all of those
wonderful tours and hopefully from many of our local students they can get that start
here at City College. So working with the common core standard
is really important as we know that contextualize learning in the real world
hands on experiences that students have. Well better prepare them for their future.
We also want to create a bridge for those exiting graduating seniors to come in to
our program ready and able to come in to express the success or express the
transfer with an inform to our education plan.
So, that they have already tried filling out this forms on their own with
information and when they come to work with our counselors without a blank piece
of paper. It's the students walking in, in form
saying that this is my education; this is where I'm going.
Please help me get there. We know that parents really appreciate
that of course because they don't want career students in their hands and we know
we need an informed work force so that our community can continue to grow and we're
meeting the demands of our industry partners as well.
As Marilyn wonderfully said thank you for sharing that I did finish my dissertation
and I'm really thrilled that I was able to look at our dual enrollment program and
how it collaborates across the schools to hopefully better prepare students for City
College. California was the first state to have
dual enrollment and yet there is very little studies that have been conducted
around concurrent and dual enrollment policies.
So I did examine the graduating local seniors of 2008 who matriculated to us in
the fall of 2008 and compare those who have had dual enrollment experience with
those who had not. Overwhelmingly, students applied at...
Purchase a full time in our programs. They have a reduced need for remediation
between now and it's very important. They are also were I think more informed
about what their future plans were. Knowing that they had to have a higher GPA
to transfer and we did see that not only in the first term stand alone but
accumulative over three years they have a hierarchy of GPA and accumulation of
transferable courses. I further and analyze that former dual
enrolment group by where they took dual enrolment courses.
And looked at high school only and college campuses only in the combination.
And as you can imagine, students who have experiences in both locations outperformed
those who took class. An isolation so our hope with this ninth
grade course. Is that students are.
Being introduced to dual enrollment in ninth grade and all of the opportunities
they'll have to participate in city college, on their high school campus and
our campus going forward. As Diane mentioned in the ninth Grade
course, students are using the career choices curriculum and answering these
three key questions, who am I? What do I want?
And, how do I get it? So, finding out what the students
strengths are and what motivates them is really the first important part of
engaging student in their education rather than it being the teacher directing the
student, the student needs a director education because that's where the
motivation to stick with those tough courses is really going to come from and
that we hope is building that resiliency. What do I want?
That's the financial literacy in the budget building.
It's the reality check for our students and when we've interviewed them that's
when the students say I know thank my parents for paying rent and keeping food
on the table because they know how much it cost to live in our community.
How do I get it also gives them a reality check that I might not be able to be a
professional soccer player. It's a great dream but it's probably a
good idea to have a backup plan. So at the end of this one semester course
they really do have us bound reality check in on multiple pathways that they can
choose from. We wanna support their dreams but we
wanted to know how to plan the best they can for their future especially with our
very uncertain economy. In the tenth grade we again have students
revisit the career fields looking at high demand industry.
We familiarize them with the one stop website for the US Department of Labor and
gives students the information about high demand jobs and how their interest fit in
to what the labor is demanding. And we know right now we can't possibly
know that technological jobs that are going to be available for today's current
high school students. It changes so rapidly.
And eleventh grade students are looking at Stem Fields which is such a broad terms
that I think people usually think only means Science and Technology, Engineering,
and Mathematics and what we know for students is that regardless of their
interest it somehow connects to a Stem Field.
So there are a lot of opportunities especially with our new grant here in
campus for students to get plugged n earlier to events like a Science night and
opportunities that we do outreaching here from the college.
We also want students in eleventh grade to have an identified post-secondary path
whether or not they think they're going to college going through the steps of
preparing for college or help them even if they choose to go into the workforce.
And in the twelfth Grade we want students to go through the steps of applying for
financial aid, applying to college, making sure they've taken their assessment test
if they haven't already done so and getting as much guidance and support so
that we can be giving them a bridge and a hand off rather than the send off from the
high school to our campus. And I'm going to path it back over to
Diane to talk about benefits and again thank you for your time.
Lots of benefits. As you can see here.
We're one of the great benefits is that all of the students are getting access to
the course. The 10-year plan and the follow up modules
and in the implementation in what we're talking with the principles about is, you
know, in order to have all students gets access to the sixteen hours of modules in
each grade they are probably going to be an English classes or Social studies,
Carpentaria that has a different sort of approach.
But they believe in that, you know, we want to keep access to all students at the
top of the, of the list. So you know.
As Lauren just mentioned, students become their own advocates after they can get
this information hopefully. I do wanna mention here it's not on the
slide but, an important factor to us is [inaudible] to the research.
We have this great model and, you know, it's being implemented everywhere but we
really need the [inaudible] research and data all the way through Santa Barbara
City College. And UCSB wants to be our partner.
Jack maybe stealing your [inaudible], I apologize.
>> Can I talk about the fund? >> [inaudible].
>> [laugh]. >> We received a very generous donation
from Mr. Carl Lindros, a community member to get
the research started and it was matched by the Santa Barbara Foundation.
So we have $20,000 so we're beginning the research with UCSB.
We've had the meetings. Everything, you know, all the planning has
taken place. So you'll be seeing that contract actually
on the May board. So, all the discussions are happening and
that, but that. That's only the beginning.
That only is that like Bridge research we're calling at because they want to
capture student data right away. The big launch [inaudible] research
project, they are actually talking about going after their own grant to this
research they are very interested and they're excellent team.
At the, at UCSB. So, we're really happy about that.
The last bullet on this slide is, is the only one I mentioned here demystifying the
college going process and we know that it is a big gap for us.
We've always known that, you know, students, you know, they get outreach from
the college. We have dual enrollment, we have all these
things going on at, at K12 but there's, there's still this gap once they graduate
and leave, something happens over the summer and then they come here and then
they sort of start over and we don't want that to happen that'd why we named this
get focus, they focus. So, we want to demystify that process.
I think it's pretty obvious, the benefits to everybody.
So, I'm not gonna, you know, [inaudible] that.
I do wanna me mention just one thing though and that's the achievement gap.
And then I'll turn it back to Jack. We don't have high dropout rate in Santa
Barbara, thankfully. You know, our educational institutions do
a wonderful job that the dropout rate was very low.
What, what there is and, you know, we have talked about with our partners, there's an
achievement gap. And our high school partners want to
narrow the achievement gap. We want to reduce the need for remediation
when they get here. So, that's one big focus of our initiative
just to narrow that achievement gap. The other things I think it's pretty
self-explanatory and I'll send it back to Jack to wrap up.
Thank you, Diane. I, I pretty much already went to the
benefit at SCBC. The, The next step is to acquire the
funding [inaudible] this whole model over next four or five years.
So, we have having contact with a number of foundations locally and nationally and
there's just a lot of interest in it this weekend we're filing a 5-page perspective
for that funding to do it. We have partners and education Accounting
Office of Education collaborating with us as well that brings to the business
community. It's really a huge community effort what
we're doing and I just cannot believe that we're actually making this happen.
So that's, you know, where, where we are but I think you know, it fits in to our
role of vision of just get focused stay focus.
They come to the college, express success. If they need to get through mediation fast
express the transfer. They need to get to that transfer program
and transfer in two years or less [inaudible] technology education group
meeting, they started meeting and we're looking at repackaging and provisioning
how we do [inaudible] education. So she sponsors the people who [inaudible]
the access and see overall vision and they're all, it's so happening in parallel
along with the continued education and center for lifelong learning.
So, That's the damage [inaudible] but I think it's a great work and we'll see if
it all works. So, let's say I'm up; I'm up with the
questions. >> Yeah [inaudible].
>> It's really not questions but definitely compliments.
This is the most timely project we've been talking about this issues and the fact
that this got started well before the student's success task force.
This just says Santa Barbara City College sees the problem and we've been seeing the
problem and. You did something about and you did
something with the same depth of quality that we always associate with our work.
We researched it, we look for it, we worked collaboratively.
This is, this the best that we can be. So, Diane, I know you always turn out
superb projects but Lori, congratulations on your PhD and welcome to the team but
these are all the things that we can be most proud of.
And it sounds very much like exactly what Aspen is looking for.
They're looking for interconnectivity. They're looking for partnerships in the
educational scene and involve. [inaudible] the community and obviously
moving into the workforce. So, I assure hope they get a chance to
take a look at what we're doing and if we need money, that's what Aspen is there for
that they, they see this projects and the fact that we.
To the date of research, we back it up and show proven results from it.
It's just a kind of quality product that we're so proud of that you're doing.
And Diane, I always love your statement you have made a number of years ago.
We are on entrepreneurial college. >> Ideas come, we make room for them and
they pay off and sometimes they don't but we take the chances and I think that's
just always part of who we are. So, Jackie played the role of [inaudible]
us through and I wish you the very best and certainly, I hope we do get to
showcases. So.
>> We, we were on I saw it coming, the two things and [inaudible] thank you very much
for the acknowledgement. It really means a lot to our team.
Dr. Mcdougall who shared this [inaudible] test
for us, this task force somebody's recommendation came from his knowledge of
what we're doing at this college including everything you just said about this
program and so he is. Now I need board for the [inaudible]
Foundation. And so, he is working with us to Looked to
them for some funding cuz it fits into a new issue there you're looking at.
And also foundation is really interested in supporting this grant that.
The reason why he suggest about it and we also, we actually we got a letter from
Jack Scott supporting his grant. Jack [inaudible] said everything you just
said that fits right into task force recommendation.
We also have a letter of support for this [inaudible] of the schools.
As well as we go forward for grant funding.
So that's where we are on this. So thank you.
Right now we have a lot of couple of items to get to you and again I wanna
acknowledge the great work that Diane has been doing over the years, you know,
Lauren Wintermeyer and the schools, the partners of the schools Accounting Office
of Education and it's just been obviously we have problems.
We all read the meeting at seven tomorrow morning to move forward.
So it seems [inaudible] by accident but the leadership has just been terrific so
it's where we are. >> But you mentioned time.
How much time do we have in this room? >> Not much.
>> We have another. >> Oh, we do okay.
>> Thank you. >> Well, thank you so much [sound].
Louis had a question. I, I wasn't sure how much time we have
left. >> Yeah.
Actually it wasn't a question. I just would again and I think, you know,
I'd recommend this in the past. This is the kind of program that would be
in excellent workshop at the community college conferences that we attend because
our state needs this type of program up and down.
So, to share it with other colleges, I think it would be excellent...
>> Yeah >> So. >> I think it's a good idea.
>> Well look at it. >> I think this time around we'll We
submitted an application to be on the programs.
Also let you know that we've been showcasing parts of our donor program and
early elements of it we have groups of people from out of state come out of our
college and Diane and Lauren have been on the road quite a bit.
>> So, it's either [inaudible] and go to every [inaudible] school or how you're
doing this. We're doing more and more, we're bringing
here. >> In fact, I think the league is looking
for applications for the November. >> [inaudible].
Yeah, the best [inaudible] travel conference budget but I think this is so
important that we need to figure out how we get there.
>> Let's move on to item five. >> Thanks, Luis.
>> Dr. [inaudible], would you like to present the
continuing education agenda? [cough].
. >>, Angie is there an update on our time?
>> [inaudible] >> Okay. >> Alright.
Then I'll pass on the formal introduction. I have five point when which is a course
modification. >> For your approval.
>> Is there a motion to approve? >> Some of.
>> Okay. I see all kinds of motions.
Luis moves, Lisa seconds. Discussion?
>> All in favor, say I. >> I.
>> I have a question. Can some of this take, pauses be taken as
stand alone or are they have to be taken in the whole series?
>> I'll answer that. This, this course is actually part of a
certificate that is on 5.2 for the digital design of basic certificate.
It won't. >> This, the certificate has a sequence of
courses so this is not necessary a standalone course but it's part of a
certificate program. >> Right.
But can someone take it. >> Yes.
>> As a stand along still. >> Yes.
>> Okay. Thank you.
>> Okay. >> My intruder Mac.
>> No. >> Let me just take a little.
>> Let's make sure that we have that both all in favor, say I.
>> I. >> Proposed name, Abstentious.
>> Item 5.2. >> 5.2 is Propel State funded certificates
and I do want to clarify even though these are listed as new certificates.
We actually do have one basic computer certificate that entails 24 courses and we
have not had any student that certificate because the number of courses so what the

And it should be as close to the beginning of the terms is possible.

Can we take them together? >> Like, is there a motion to approve both

discussion? Yes?
>> Joe could you just review briefly what projects were being covered.
By the transfer of 690,000 from contingency fund into capital outlay in
our construction fund. I didn't bring Melissa those projects with
me but I can tell you those are the projects that we discussed earlier in the
year for actual implementation during the summer.
Those are the ones that funded through internal funds only for maintenance
projects. So primarily they'd be deferred
maintenance on. >> On a campus.
I should remember some of them but it's been several months since we discussed
them and I just don't have [inaudible]. >> Okay so what we're doing here is we're
putting the money to work over the summer and those are the projects that we
[inaudible]. >> Yes, those we're the projects that
we're brought earlier in the year. And nevertheless there were like six
projects. >>, Like repainting in certain areas and
[inaudible]. >> Learning resources?
>> What was that? The what?
>> Learning Resources Center? >> No, this is, DLRC is not a [inaudible]
it's a separate item. These are actually projects...
>> [inaudible]. >> Okay.
That came up over the course of the year that we knew that we needed to do.
So... >> Okay.
>> I can, I'll send you the list of that [inaudible].
>> That's fine. I just thought it would be helpful for
people to know. >> We're, we're.
>> I apologize. >> Okay, we have two resolutions before us
and we will go to a roll call vote... >> Trustee Adam.
>> Aye. >> Trustee Bloom.
>> Aye. >> Aye.

I. We have 6.2 C as the adoption of
resolution number 40 providing a payment of an outdated warrant.
>>, From dated 11/26/2008 for $249.94. >> This could take a long time to debate.
I mean is there. >> Well the debate, you round up the round
up to 90%. >> Okay.
Okay. Is there a motion to approve?
>> [inaudible] and Joan. Discussion?
No? All in favor say aye.
>> Aye. >> Aye.
>> Opposed nay. >> Resolution.
>> Roll call. >> Oh, I'm sorry, sorry, sorry.
>> Okay. >> Trustee Evan.
>> Aye. >> Trustee Bloom.
>> Aye. >> Trustee. >> Aye.
>> Trustee [inaudible]. >> Aye.
>> Trustee. I.
>> Aye. >> Aye.
>> Aye. Item 6.2E is the Instructional Services
Agreements between Santa Barbara City College and Star King San Marcos new grant
and the oaks parent child workshops for the provision of non-credit parent
education courses at the workshops. >> No motion to approve?
>> Second. >> Second?
Second. This is the discussion.
Jone? >> Yeah, I just wanna be clear about this
because we discussed at [inaudible] session that this is going to be
subsidized if we don't get chances of this funding and I'd like to know what would be
the scope of the slope possible. >> [inaudible] right now...
>> This course if still funded as not enhanced...
>> Right. >> Classes.
So the funding is there in this year and next year beyond that, change in
legislation. It wouldn't take place until and there's
no legislation right now to defend these courses.
They're just saying in terms of non-enhanced, you know, make them a lower
priority in terms of how we all get. >> That would be internal choice on our
part or it might be. >> It's an internal choice.
It's an internal choice to, to do support these...
>> Next year non-enhanced classes and we started.
>> Do we have a policy on which non-enhance classes we choose to support?
>> We don't have a policy. >> We probably should.
We should probably have a policy on that. I'll just give that direction to those
come after me but if we're going to be. Subsidizing nor enhance, there, there
needs to be a policy why we pick one program of another.
So, I just, just advise board members that you probably should think about that.
But I would like that because I know it's an extraordinary amount of money so I'd
like to put it on the table in the interest of transparency so you can start
comparing if you're subsidizing this or enhanced.
How you are justifying you are not subsidizing others and that's, and that's
a critical issue of how we do business. So, can you give me a ball park of what it
might be? Subsidized.
And look at this subsidizing. Looking at it's an agreement that we
started. Talking about.
You know a long time ago this past summer. >> And this is just the agreement, you
know, supervision for this year and next year and the board, when we take a look at
it, you know, going forward after this, you know, degree with this year and next
year in terms of, you know, where the funding is and where the priorities are at
that point. >> We, we just went through budget
hearings where a different. Activities were identified with the dollar
amount and I didn't see anything that might have to be pulled out of general
operational funds to subsidize this. So, I think the question is a fair one.
>> Could we, cold we defer the answer however until the subsequent meeting.
I'm aware that there are students that are waiting outside and we need to move on.
>> Yes. >> I just like to say that it's not a
subsidy; it is reimbursed by the state at this point as Jack had said.
So, let's move on. >> And I'd like to clarify, I said the
potential subsidy of it if it's reimbursed by the state that's not the problem, the
issue is should it become a potential subsidy in the policy being what is our
policy to choose to subsidize some non-enhanced non-credit over other
non-enhanced non-credit. That's what I've been saying.
>> I think the, the question is large, we'll try to answer.
Let's, if we can move to a vote. >> I think there is, this is a resolution?
>> It's not a resolution. >> [laugh].
>> We'll get it. [laugh].
>> Would you, would you please make up my mind?
All in favor say aye. >> Aye.
>> Aye. >> Aye.
>> Oppose nay. >> Nay.
>> Abstentions? Motion is carried.
The next one is the adaption of the resolution number 41 for the ten percent
progress payment retention amount for the humanity's building modernization project.
That was discussed at the study session on April twenty-third.
>> Is there a motion to approve the resolution?
