Strong Workforce Proposals – Final Outcome

The final Local and Regional Share Strong Workforce Proposals Program budgets were distributed to the committee for the review and final approval.

Espinosa-Pieb gave a brief overview of the discussion from last week’s meeting. She reminded the team that they had requested additional information for SWI fund allocation from two programs: Environmental Recourses Management (ERM) and Child Development (CD).  She forwarded departments’ emails/explanations to the committee for the review. After a discussion, the team made one revision and then approved the requests.

Espinosa-Pieb requested that deans start gathering information, quotes contracts, etc. to ensure they are ready to submit PRs as soon as the accounts are set up.  It is important that PRs are submitted quickly so that Purchasing process them in a timely manner. The Finance office will be setting up the new CTE accounts.

Espinosa-Pieb explained that the next step is forwarding all requests to Vice Chancellor’s Business Services office for approval. The VC will be approving both Foothill and De Anza colleges CTE proposals before submitting to the State. Espinosa-Pieb clarified that Regional Share proposals have to be submitted individually for every program; All of the Local proposals will be submitted in one document.

Diversity Office Proposal

The current Equity Director would like to move to a full-time teaching load in IIS (she’s currently 70% Equity Director and 30% teaching).

Per past practice, FTEF for IIS division will not be impacted by the possible addition of this position.

She is requesting that the Equity, Social Justice & Multicultural Education office hire a full-time Equity Director.

This proposal was forwarded to FA, Academic Senate, Vice President of Instruction and IIS division for review.

After a discussion, the members decided to bring this agenda item to the next IPBT meeting.
