I. Approval of Agenda Notes: The notes of the February 23 meeting were approved after a correction under topic III was noted. The change should read: It was noted that the Language Arts Division is reducing $39,375 of released/reassigned time as part of the approved 2010 budget reduction plan NOT included in this $200,000 reduction. The agenda for March 2, 2010 was approved as written.

II. Release/Reassigned Time Reduction: The process and criteria for determining recommendations for the $200,000 reductions in release/reassigned time were discussed. Since each division will be sending a faculty person to provide additional information regarding their release/reassigned time to the IPBT committee, the committee worked on criteria to be utilized for assessment for this meeting—scheduled for Friday, March 12. The request was made to have the following information added to the 2009-10 Faculty Reassign Time document: number of full-time and part-time faculty; number of courses (in place of sections); and an annualized number report that would include Spring, 2009, Fall, 2009 and Winter, 2010 numbers.

B. Creamer volunteered to provide the statistics for the number of “sections” in place of “courses” portion. C. Espinosa-Pieb will work on the “annualized number” report.

G. Anderson and R. Tomaneng will correct the numbers on the LA/LART section.

The team members requested obtaining more information from the deans pertaining to the release time jobs to be made available before the “all-day” meeting. A discussion ensued around looking at different job aspects for assessment—which could include other duties performed--e.g., work on curriculum, scheduling, chairing department meetings, budget issues and extra-work hours that might be required.

Concerns were cited again pertaining to the discrepancy of pay for duties performed, and a solution of having set job descriptions with assigned “pay” attached to the job was suggested.

C. Espinosa-Pieb stated that the Faculty Reassign Time for FY 09-10 paper is a public document and can be shared.

The “all-day” meeting when the IPBT members will hear the various chairs defend their duties is scheduled for Friday, March 12—Adm. 109. (Lunch will be provided.) It was noted that this meeting is in conflict with a morning All Administrator’s meeting.

The document titled, List of Department Head Duties was distributed for the team members to refer to while the assessments are being made.

The IPBT members were given the charge to bring back any additional assessment information along with the Faculty Reassign Time for FY 09-10 document to the meeting scheduled for March 9, 2010.

III. Other: Lee-Klawender informed IPBT that the La Voz article in the March 1st edition entitled "17 New Hires" had many errors about IPBT and misquotes of Lee-Klawender.
