Notes from the May 25th meeting were approved.
Governance Task Group has been developing an e-handbook

information on a template to be used in the handbook. The document will be
presented to College Council on June 9th for approval.
SSPBT - Request appointments from the Academic and
Classified Senates of new members by the end of the quarter. College Council
accepted the SSPBT recommendation to select the SSPBT co-chair. Everyone is encouraged to talk to
faculty and staff about serving on the SSPBT, as an at large member (outside of
Student Services). It was proposed that SSPBT members serve a two-year term.
Budget Reductions Proposal to College Council
The Student Services Budget Reduction proposal did not meet
the amount requested. Student
Services managers agreed to put their salaries on the list. The proposal included all the recommendations
at the last SSPBT meeting. College
Council members were stunned at the depth of the cuts to Student Services. The information provided showed the
consequences of reductions and raised awareness of what Student Services
provides. The President will

their approach is and how to move forward. Next step a meeting between, SSPBT, IPBT and FERC.
SSPBT reviewed IPBT Program Viability and Program
Discontinuance, which SS needs to develop (state mandate).
Suggestion - Identify academic programs that students are in
(from the application) to inform Instruction of the classes needed. Redefine every
quarter; to make sure students update the information. Each division can access
the data from Argos.
Include Core sequencing mix and scheduling need in the
discussion with the IPBT (need data).
Cook/Espinosa-Pieb will work on the agenda for the Joint
Meeting – One of the goals would be to help instruction understand the system
that students have to go through to meet their goals. It is more than course sequence – how to get the students
through the courses they need. Suggestion - Counseling 100 for faculty.
Committee – Newell requesting a classified person to serve on the
Committee. If interested, let her
know. College Planning Committee
is a part of the Institutional Research and Planning office. CPC is an oversight committee that
