Review Agenda and Notes

ISP/Enrollment were added to the agenda. 


The Matriculation Committee has agreed to support the Curriculum Committee’s recommendation regarding prerequisites. Document will be presented to SSPBT as soon as it is ready for review. This recommendation supports each college in the district having a different process for prerequisite validation during the curriculum review cycle.

Veterans action item is in progress. Areas will forward referral contacts to Veterans area to be included in their promo piece.

Program Service Viability – handout - DRAFT Key Program Viability Procedure

SSPBT assigns readers to review program reviews and make an initial recommendation for each service in a program to be viable or raise questions about the viability of the service.

-Identify what a service is – action item for next meeting

-Develop a rubric to help decide if a service is viable before the readers begin their review.

-Consider organizing PRs by different areas; identify services for clarity and the effects.

-Look for areas that more than one area is doing, include in the Program Reviews (PR), then collaborate on how they overlap. This would include suggestions for resource allocation.

-Haynes will bring back information from meeting with DSPS at FH.

Discussion followed regarding viability of Jt FH/DA SS group and the lack of communication between the two colleges.

SSPBT subgroup will provide a draft of this year’s PR for the next meeting.

SSPBT agreed that updated PRs are due by April 1st.
