The minutes of November 8, 2012 were approved.

College Planning Committee - ACCJC Planning Agenda Progress and Completion Template

Newell presented the College Planning Committee's ACCJC Planning Agenda Progress and Completion Template. She informed the group that the template would be available online as well as emailed to each committee/department that has a planning agenda assigned to them. Each group is being asked to review the template and if the planning agenda(s) has been completed, to enter the date of completion and a link to the evidence to support its completion. If it has not yet been completed they are asked to submit a date of intended completion. The groups are then asked to submit the template back to the planning committee at the end of each spring quarter for review. The information collected will also serve as an annual collection of institutional progress and activities that can inform the self-study report in 2014-15. Once the planning agenda has been completed it will be removed from the list. The process is open to feedback from all groups. It was suggested that the template be sorted so that each group can see the agendas assigned to them at the top. The group approved the template which can be accessed here:
