 I. Approval of Agenda Notes: Notes of April 6, 2010 were approved as written, and the agenda for April 13, 2010 was approved—changing addressing Topic III before Topic II. 

 II. Faculty Hiring (Results): The handout, Faculty Ranking for 2010 – 11 Hires, was distributed and examined. Results of the faculty ranking for 2010 -11 hires for the second round (4/13/10) were as follows:

  1. Environmental Sciences
  2. Math
  3. Librarian
  4. African/African American Studies
  5. Auto Tech
  6. Biology
  7. PE Instructor/Track and Field Coach
  8. Counseling

The IPBT members voted and unanimously approved to send eight positions forward to College Council as recommendations to go out for hire. It was noted that if a position doesn’t fill, it would be on “hold” until the next year. The team members stressed the importance of keeping the integrity of the ranking process--especially in the cases when a position search is not successful—those positions will remain as “priority” for the next hire. It is the hope to have the positions filled by September 2010— if possible. 

III. Annual Program Review Update: C. Lee-Wheat described the structure of the document titled, Pilot Annual Program-Level Summary and Analysis of SLO Results – Spring 2010—Draft 04/05/2010, and asked the team members for their input. The purpose of this document is to help connect the Program Review Updates with the SLO’s. There was a lengthy discussion pertaining to the formatting and the information being requested. The importance of incorporating this task was stated as being crucial to our accreditation process. The formation of this document will be a future topic discussion at the next IPBT meeting because of the many concerns and recommendations voiced.

IV. Good of the Order: None
