 EOPS Advisory Committee was provided with state Financial Aid program changes.

 Cook asked for a F.A. briefing session to discuss this information and determine how to share with the college. A suggestion was made to develop a cheat sheet.

 Veteran’s workshop scheduled on May 4th, “Welcoming Home Warriors”

 Reminder the SLO Open Convocation on April 27th is open to everyone. The topic is “How to evaluate critical thinking in the classroom”. It was suggested that SS also have a meeting on the same date.

 Technology - ETS is working to launch a new email/meeting maker system some time this summer.

 SJS public hearing on changes proposed for the 2012-13 year. More meetings will be held and others from the college will be invited to attend. Cook will forward the link to the power point presentation explaining the proposed changes.

Measure C Priorities - Gibson reviewed information on the Measure C web site re the different funding sources for Measure C dollars and encouraged the SSPBT to prioritize their requests. SSPBT agreed each program would prioritize their requests and submit to a SSPBT sub group (Booye, Chung, Cook, LeBleu-Burns) to review and separate by fund and priority before the SSPBT meets on April 11th to prioritize the requests. 

APRU Revisions – Haynes shared the latest revised form and instructions for review and comment. He shared the Program Discontinuance Process was approved by the CC. Suggested that programs put items not requested from Measure C funds into their PR and to keep a running total of the items requested, received and still need. Final APRUs are due to Haynes by May 15th. SSPBT agreed that the form and instructions were ready to be published.

Suggestion - Make sure the SSPBT calendar is in sync with the College Planning Committee calendar.
