    Approval of notes

    The notes from November 13, 2018 were approved.

    Report out from Viability:

    Lorrie Ranck recapped IPBT’s vote on Scenario B, which included Football/Water Polo (women); SERP (elimination of 5 – 7 ACE positions); SWP/BSI/Equity ($500K)

    College Council accepted IPBT’s recommendation Scenario B with the caveat that Football’s reduction plan be re-presented with details to the Viability Committee and then again to IPBT.

    Lorrie notified the team that Viability committee met and accepted 2-phase budget reduction plans for Football. She displayed an excel sheet with Football expenses and highlighted the reduction areas.

    Total Football program estimated cost around $250K including labor, operational and equipment expenses.

    Phase I reduction budget goal -$169,263.95 Proposal – strategic planning and scheduling; faculty load reduction; cross-over with other sports; reducing TEAs; moving some expenses (i.e., additional coach expenses, ambulance, busses) to Fund 15.

    Phase II budget reduction goal - $103,662.45 Proposal – Comp-time reduction (Equipment manager, Athletic trainer); adding classified hourly Athletic trainer; hiring seasonal employee (for laundry); existing full-time faculty will join the program in Fall 2019 to oversee and help with fund raising; Football needs to raise an additional $5K for both phases. What is the contingency plan if the team unable to raise $5K for each year? Bliss confirmed that the team would have additional expense reductions.

    Lorrie Ranck emphasized this reduction won’t eliminate $250K, but it would bring Football budget in parity with other sports with less monies. The roster would be kept at 67 students with a large team coming in. We want to see more student involvement in FAST football program; academic goals, scholars, resulting increased transfer rates.

    Impacted student athlete’s population would be disproportionally affected if football is eliminated.

    The Football team won championship; Tony Santos named Coach of the Year.

    After confirming all nuances, the committee, the committee unanimously approved the following statement:

    In lieu of elimination, IPBT recommends the football program be given the opportunity to implement a two-phase plan to realize cost savings and bring the expenses in line with other DA athletic teams.

    • IPBT requests a progress report in November 2019 and November 2020
    • No other budgetary changes to be made to Scenario B
    • Consultation with ACE as appropriate
    • No elimination of Women Water Polo at this time

    Program Review – Update on changes submitted – Postponed.

    Post calendar information on website: Calendar: Faculty -> Deans Friday, March 22 -> Deans to Faculty, Tuesday, April 9 and Deans to Office of Instruction, Friday, April 12.

    Resource Request Allocation: Working in Teams – Postponed.

    Next week meeting, December 4, 2018 – 3:00 to 5:00 PM (2 hours)
