Jt. PBT Meeting Agenda Items include - The major discussion point was how to improve communication between functional areas as decisions are made so that the effects on students are known before the change goes into effect.
· The need for SS representation on the APM (Academic and Professional Matters Committee) as board policies are reviewed that impact student services, such as the repeat limits. The agenda for APM has been expanded and SS is not included.
· Repeatability limits, no process in place as yet; what is the criteria for not collecting apportionment; what is the process for appeals?
· Prerequisite enforcement – what are the criteria for appeal? What will be the effects on enrollment?
· When course offerings are cut, how is this communicated to SS and how do we advise students about future course needs? Example of cuts to CAOS that impact Health certificate requirements.
Additional agenda items discussed were:
· The need for SS representation on the APM (Academic and Professional Matters Committee) as board policies (and other mandates) are reviewed that impact student services, such as the repeat limits. The agenda for APM has been expanded and SS is not included.
· The new Transfer Model Curriculum (TMC) issues are global in nature, requiring a global discussion, involving curriculum, counseling/ transfer-related services, system-wide resources, and a need for coherent and timely communication.
· Establishing a joint PBT medium for recommendations in preliminary impact reports, which are produced in the IPBT and SSPBT models, to be discussed.
The next SSPBT Meeting is scheduled for Wednesday, March 28, 2012.
