Dean Rock Pfotenhauer presented an overview to Workforce Development 2.0, a collaborative effort within the college and between the college and other workforce development stakeholders.  WD 2.0 seeks to improve retention, completion, and employment outcomes for adults turning to Cabrillo for Career Technical Education because the recession has limited their job opportunities.

Information regarding the request from Delta High School to change its name to “Delta High School at Cabrillo College” was provided to the Governing Board.  President King provided an overview of the history of the placement of Delta High School at Cabrillo College, in essence a tenant.

 

After a brief discussion, the Board members concurred that

as Cabrillo College is not the governing agency over Delta High School, it would be misleading;

it would not benefit Cabrillo College students in any way;

the Board appreciates the mission of Delta High School but did not feel the name change would be appropriate.

 

President King noted that while this was not an action item, he will respond to the administration of Delta High School with the determination of the Board.
