Agenda #6

Topic:Summer Schedule 2010
Presenter:Ann Wright
Summary of Agenda Item:There was discussion about the proposal for limiting summer school 2010.

Kelly Locke read the motions that were made at the Academic Senate and that Academic Senate wanted to have summer school.

Armando Cortes said that students were informally plled and the consensus was that evening students depend on summer school and transfer students count in summer when they prepare their ed plan. without summer schook, it would cause course overload, or will necessitate the student taking another year of study to complete necessary classes.. Armando also felt that community members and new high school graduates would need summer school as a stepstone to a 4 year college. high school graduates coming to a community college need summer school to keep the momentum going.. general community members need summer school to help youth have a place to enrich their lives and that it may have an affect on violence/crime, without summer school.

Academic Senate echoed the report from Armdano Cortes.
Action(s) required:Discussion for purposes of decision on Summer School 2010
Responsibilites:Discussion for purposes of decision on Summer School 2010

Presenter:Peter Calvert
Summary of Agenda Item:Peter reported that FIS meet and asked the question athat Rac has asked of them.

Looking at the numbers only, it looks like we made $1 million last summer.
However, cash flow is the biggest problem.
Some questions that were asked by the FIS were:
What if: (1) Legislature delays funding; (2) legislature makes bigger cuts in January; (3) We offer classes one fiscal year, but get the money much later. We commit finances in 2009-2010, if there is a possibilty that we may not get money until 2010-2011 (or even byond. Cash flow is the biggest problem. TRAN funds need to be paid back.

Peter said that it was felt that FIS needed to help everyone understand how bleak the situation is.

After further discussion, motion was made. See above for motion.

It is the FIS recommendation that summer school not be offered during the summer of 2010 to save $1 million dollars
