    Approval of Notes: Notes for meeting of February 1, 2022 were approved.

    DASG Report: Fiza gave report for DASG. DASG Senate has voted in compliance with AB 361 to continue to meet virtually. The 2021-2022 DASG Budget for Fund 41 was presented. DASG will not be funding either Environmental Studies outdoor area or tutoring in SSC. Decision is based on reduced DASG funds due to pandemic and the belief these requests are instructional and should therefore be funded by the College. DASG supports students being included on the faculty hiring committee whether on full search committee or in a limited capacity. Letter has been sent to Administration concerning COVID response and remote learning.

    Program Review and Timeline: IPBT members wished for more time to update and consider document in its entirety including considering how the Program Reviews will be evaluated and reviewed. To allow departments time and space to collaborate on responses, desire will be to have document sent to department chairs well before the College flex day of April 5th which is flex day set aside for Division and department meetings.

    Strong Workforce Program and Perkin’s Funds: IPBT members voted to approve the budget presented at meeting of January: De Anza College Master Allocation Summary Fall 2021 .

    Shared Governance Task Force: Current proposal which includes changes suggested during the process of presenting the proposal to current shared governance groups was presented. There will be a Town Hall on February 16th where more feedback is desired. Concerns were aired regarding the limited inclusion of faculty (including part-time faculty) and students. There was also the concern the subgroups within the Program Allocation Committee would lead back to the present silos that do not facilitate communication between instruction, student services, and administrative units. Full proposal can be reviewed SGTF Slide Deck.

    Budget Task Force Announcement: Funds for eight retirements have been released. Christina proposed half the funds be used to hire the next four faculty positions on the Hiring Prioritization List for 2022-23 Hires. Christina reminded the group that we had previously agreed to move down the list if additional funds were released. Mary asked if we should wait to vote on the next four positions until next week. Since this was an item not on agenda, a straw vote was taken on whether to move forward with the decision today. Majority were in favor of doing so.

    Motion made and seconded to move down the list:

    Ranking Division Title
    #9 CA Film/TV, Production
    #10 CA Film/TV, Animation
    #11 PS Astronomy
    #12 IIS Spanish

    Motion passed.

    IPBT will continue the conversation about the remaining funds, and how to spend remaining funds at the next meeting. For example, at College Council meeting of February 17th, Technology Committee will be presenting a recommendation to fully staff the Online Education Center.

    Plan for allocation of Enhanced Lottery and Instructional Equipment: Tabled for 2/15/2022 meeting.
