Meeting Notes - May 14, 2013
1) Approve Notes from January 22, 2013
The notes were approved with a correction to the first paragraph.
2) Budget & Enrollment Update
Watson presented the updates referring to the handouts posted above.
May revised was released today. Watson reviewed the summary information posted by the State Chancellor's Office and League. More details information pertaining to FHDA will be available after the revise has been analyzed by the district.
IPBT, Deans and the enrollment management team are working hard to firm enrollment figures. The District still has 2013-14 year to gain back the 295 enrollment. We have a further two years 13-14 & 14-15 to regain the balance of the lost enrollment.
Repeatability, Title V changes and lower high school graduation rates have all impacted enrollment in most of California. Southern California is the only part of the State that has not seen a drop in enrollment.
Watson provided a summary of the most significant changes and updates:
Please refer to the policies & procedures manual for complete information and questions you may have.
Title V is California State policy. These students must be enrolled in more than 12 units and can only work less than 20 hrs. In general, these students are funded by non-federal funds. i.e. grants/perkins/ etc.
Title IV is Federal policy. Work study funded students are covered by Title IV. Title IV students still only need to be enrolled in 6 units.
Regulations are in line with the new Student Success implementation.
4) Materials Fees Update
Based on an audit finding from last year, the district policy is to eliminate all Materials Fees and to reinstate on a case by case basis. All Materials fees will be fully tracked and balances will be zeroed out at the end of the quarter.
Departments are doing a good job with spending down the materials fees.
Looking at other solutions including more online posting, moving around available funding and print kiosks
VTE are the auditors. Watson is working directly with the auditor with the goal of not receiving another audit finding.
5) Student Success Update
Chow reviewed the latest update of the student success information as posted above. Conversations are occurring across campus which will help analyze the recommendations and drive planning agendas. The work groups are at different stages in planning so a full and complete picture will not be available for some time.
