ORAL REPORTS

 

Board Members' Reports

 

Trustee Wildman welcomed everyone to the new Scotts Valley Center, noting that now there would be a regular facility for the annual north county meeting.  She stated that Rebecca Garcia’s election as CCCT President was reported in the Scotts Valley newspaper, showing the heightened importance of Cabrillo’s presence in Scotts Valley.  Trustee Wildman attended the annual Watsonville Digital Bridge student project presentations and was impressed by their efforts.  She congratulated the team that put together the graduation ceremony, noting that it is always rewarding to see the results of the year’s efforts.  Trustee Wildman commented that this would be Vice President Manuel Osorio’s final Board meeting before his retirement and she wanted to personally thank him and acknowledge his many years of hard work and all he meant to the college community.

 

Trustee Leopold seconded Trustee Wildman’s comments regarding graduation day, adding that it was his favorite day to be a trustee.  He thanked the staff that attended the COPA event at Del Mar School on Sunday, noting that the changing demographics in the county involved a challenge to the vital role that Cabrillo will play in the community.  Trustee Leopold noted that it took perseverance and a committed trustee to make sure the process continued until the Scotts Valley Center opened; with COPA, he felt that it was sometimes helpful to consistently come not with solutions but to listen and encourage others to be involved in the process.

 

Trustee Garcia stated that she decided to become a trustee because she wanted to give back, and graduation is the best reward.  This year, two of her former students graduated.  Trustee Garcia announced that the Watsonville Digital Bridge Academy would be receiving the John Rice Diversity Award at the Chancellor’s Office on July 9th, a well-deserved honor.  The CAP (Cabrillo Advancement Program) previously received this award, and Trustee Garcia expressed her pride in the accomplishments of these two fine programs.

 

Trustee Stonebloom thanked everyone involved in the Social Justice conference and hoped it was the beginning of a long tradition.  She participated in the Transfer Luncheon and thanked those involved in developing and serving at the event.  Trustee Stonebloom reported on the last meeting of the Transfer Advisory Committee, which was well-attended and lively.  She complimented Mario Garcia for leading the meeting with confidence and skill, and thanked everyone in Counseling for persevering through a difficult year with dedication and hard work.  Trustee Stonebloom expressed her appreciation to Outreach Coordinator Margaret Tam for her work in setting up field trips with students, ages elementary to adults, marketing college education to Latinos of all ages.

Student Trustee’s Report

 

Student Trustee Jonathan Saad noted his amazement at how many lives were touched and how much money was given out at the Scholarship Ceremony.  He spoke of saying goodbye to many good friends on the Student Senate and welcoming new Senators, noting that there are already 14 members and there would probably be a full Senate this year.  Student Trustee Saad stated that the Senate would have much work to do in the coming year with the new buildings and the benefits check off.  He reported that Bob Owen brought the Technology Plan to the Senate and the Senate formally supported the Plan.  At the last Senate meeting, the architect showed the vision for the new Student Activities Center and there were some issues they hoped could be worked out and coordinated with the new Senate.  Mr. Saad reported that the Senate spent quite a lot of money on new furniture for the building.

REPORT

 

 

Superintendent’s Report

 

Superintendent/President Brian King reviewed the many events over recent weeks; the Scholarship Ceremony where over $300K was given to hundreds of students, the Puente celebration, the Watsonville Digital Bridge student project presentations, Classified Staff Appreciation Week Open House in the President’s Office, the Stroke Center Honors Day and Graduation.  He noted that there were representatives from the Governing Board present at each of the events.  He thanked the many people involved in making graduation run smoothly, especially Dean Sesario Escoto, and Director of Maintenance & Operations Joe Nugent and his team.  President King reported that Watsonville Center Director Rachel Mayo and he are serving on the new Pajaro Valley Unified School District English Learners Task Force.  Responding to a question regarding DSPS cart availability raised by a speaker at the last meeting, President King reported that cart service is available after 4:00 pm by request.  He noted that much of the hillside difficulty would be addressed with the completion of the Student Activity Center, but with the campus terrain as it is, all attempts will be made to keep it as accessible as possible.  President King acknowledged the contributions of Vice President Osorio over the years and thanked him.  He noted that the landscape of Cabrillo is changing with many new people in management who do not have the history of Cabrillo but are interested in learning, in honoring the shared governance process, collaborating and focusing on the future.  He stated that as great as the previous 48 years had been for the college, he was sure the next 50 would be better.

 

 

SUPERINTENDENT’S

REPORT

 

Faculty Senate

 

Rory O’Brien, Faculty Senate President, commented that the end of the semester was a wonderful time for faculty, with a feeling of accomplishment, a celebration, a graduation ceremony, and then the retirement party.  Preparation for summer school will begin soon, and planning for the fall semester.  The Faculty Senate is interested in getting faculty to take part in the master planning process as they should be well represented and vitally involved in the direction of the college for the short and long term.  Dr. O’Brien reported that faculty members are beginning to be concerned about the secondary effects of the building process and their expectations that there will be resources for cleaning up old classrooms and completing smart classrooms.  He stated that he knew there would be an upcoming discussion regarding the Technology Plan, and while it was developed with much input, the associated price tag was scary to faculty when every teaching unit was hard fought to keep instruction quality high and make the campus what it is.  Dr. O’Brien reported that one area of concern is a movement at the federal level to restructure and impose an accreditation process that would have different criteria regarding degree completion, job placement, etc. than the ACCJC accreditation process that the college currently maintains.  He was encouraged that Lamar Alexander is against the new federal proposal.

 

 

FACULTY SENATE

 

 

CCEU

 

Stephanie Stainback, CCEU President, acknowledged that the union is ready to enter negotiations with the district and appreciated the simultaneous sunshining of interests.  She stated that one issue of concern is benefits, noting that the benefits stipend is tied to the lowest cost HMO.  The District approved the adoption of changed medical insurance plans without getting buy-in and approval from the classified staff.  The District’s approval was given despite both a significant degradation in benefits provided by the low-level HMO plan and a 15% increase to the plan.  Ms. Stainback stated that this was a serious breakdown in shared governance and that classified staff were disappointed to have to engage in negotiations for benefits again.  Ms. Stainback stated that the prioritization process for adding new classified staff was working well.  However, the college still has many classified staff with 9, 10, and 11 month contracts, despite the fact that classes now are offered for all 12 months of the year.  It is unrealistic to expect increasing those positions to 12 month contracts to compete with the need for adding new positions, especially with the demand for new positions that is accompanying the addition of new facilities.  Ms. Stainback expressed the union’s support for using a facilitator for discussing charged issues, noting that it had been working well.  She looked forward to the Classified Picnic and hoped Board members would attend.  She welcomed Paul Harvell as the new CCFT President and looked forward to working with him.  Ms. Stainback thanked Vice President Osorio for his years of service.

 

 

CCEU

 

CCFT

 

Paul Harvell, CCFT President, reported that the new CCFT/District contract was distributed for ratification and the results were in; faculty approved the contract.  He thanked the district for collegial, frank and professional negotiations, including the staff behind the scenes.  Mr. Harvell especially thanked Tatiana Bachuretz, Executive Assistant to Pegi Ard, for her excellent assistance.

Item 19. Establish GASB 45 Retiree Medical Benefits Fund

President King presented the recommendation that the Governing Board approve the establishment of a Retiree Benefit Fund and authorize the funding plan recommended by the subcommittee.

 

Trustee Leopold commented that this proposal is actually a small amount to resolve compared to some entities.  He remarked that in the past, the Board has considered some actions having to do with health care as not having to do with education, but looking at this unfunded liability, healthcare plays a huge role and affects education greatly.  He hoped the Board would recall this issue if another opportunity arose to support a healthcare initiative.

 

Vice President Ard stated that the committee recognizes that this is a small amount towards the liability and hopes to find a way to increase it.  It is a good faith first step.

 

It was moved and seconded (Leopold/Wildman) to approve the establishment of a Retiree Benefit Fund and authorize the funding plan recommended by the subcommittee.  The motion carried unanimously (Reece absent).

INFORMATION ITEMS

 

Item 26. Technology Assessment and Three Year Plan

The Technology Assessment and Three Year Plan was provided for Governing Board information.

 

President King noted that it was difficult to believe that Associate Vice President Bob Owen had only been at the college for a little over a year and had spearheaded this collaborative effort to develop a comprehensive Technology Plan.

 

Vice President Owen presented an overview of the three-year Technology Plan, noting that 75 people on 20 task forces over a 7 month period worked on the report.  He answered specific technology questions regarding the report, smart classrooms, professional development, document imaging, distance education, refreshing current equipment, comparisons to other colleges and businesses, cost breakdowns for phasing replacements, and options for the aging telephone system.

 

Trustee Wildman asked what steps the Board could take to help develop a funding plan to support the plan.

 

President King responded that the College Planning Council “acknowledged the fine job of analysis on the Technology Plan and recognized that the college has a significant need.”  He noted that development of the plan is more than half the work, but much remains to be done on the financing.  He hoped to bring back the plan for action in August, not including action regarding funding.  Staff will work over the summer on funding options; there are no present funding streams for this pressing need.

 

There was a lengthy discussion regarding the potential benefit versus the cost of hiring a consultant to review the Technology Plan and the needs of the District.

 

Trustee Stonebloom asked how the Technology Plan was tied to accreditation and how decisions would be made to move forward.

 

Vice President Owen responded that the existing shared governance process would be used.  The Technology Committee meets monthly, reporting to the CPC to discuss how technology fits in the bigger picture.  Vice President Owen stated that the Technology Steering Committee includes all the Vice Presidents, which yields integration.  He added that in an ideal world, accreditation is the goal and technology is involved in getting there.

Item 28. Marketing and Communications Planning Process

A report on the Cabrillo college Marketing and Communications Planning Process was provided to the Governing Board for information.

 

Trustee Leopold commented that the planning process looked good but suggested that the relevance of demographics should be incorporated, and issues such as age and ethnicity need to be a key part of the marketing plan.  He added that the approach to marketing, such as language issues and computer accessibility, should be tied to outreach.

 

Director of Marketing and Communications Mary Planding responded that she would be working directly with the Director of Planning and Research for demographic information, which was built into the plan.

 

Trustee Garcia asked if the plan would be presented for Governing Board approval.

 

President King responded that it would be a similar process to the Technology Plan, a first reading for information and a second reading for action.

 

Trustee Stonebloom asked who was sought out to fill the committees.

 

Ms. Planding responded that a broad cross section of the campus participated.

 

Trustee Stonebloom noted that users of technology served on the Technology Committee but it was difficult to identify users of marketing.  The results may not reflect back from the community.

 

Ms. Planding responded that focus groups were developed for outside feedback and much external work was done.

Trustee Leopold expressed his appreciation for the information.  He stated that he would like to tie CHAC’s efforts into Hispanic Serving Institution status, and ask CHAC to help the college assess and improve services and programs to Latinos.

 

Trustee Garcia asked what CHAC’s advocacy would involve.

 

Dr. Najarro responded that CHAC would advocate issues to the Board, local newspapers, to faculty during Flex Week, etc.

 

Trustee Garcia asked about CHAC’s role in terms of shared governance.

 

Rachel Mayo responded that CHAC’s members serve on shared governance committees and will advocate and raise consciousness there.

 

Dr. Najarro commented that CHAC’s members are dynamic, vibrant and inclusive, and will get things done.

 

Trustee Leopold commented that the Latino demographic is growing and he wants as many people as possible to be thinking of ways to meet the needs of this growing community.

Item 33. Transportation Board Report

A report from the Transportation Management Advisory Committee was provided for Governing Board information.

 

Trustee Wildman requested that in the future, the committee look at a plan with more emphasis on Watsonville and Scotts Valley.

 

Trustee Leopold commented that he was pleased to see the college working on transportation issues and a grant, and asked about the status of the outstanding issues with Vice President Osorio’s retirement.

 

Vice President Osorio responded that there were 18 strategies in the original plan, of which 10 were implemented.  He stated that he attended many transportation meetings convened by many agencies at the Board’s direction, and reported that a grant application was under development for $25K over two years to the Monterey Bay Air Pollution Control Board.

 

Trustee Leopold commented that it was not realistic to expect Dr. Chen to take on the transportation issue upon her arrival.

 

Chair Spencer noted that the higher parking fines was a fee on the backs of the students.  She asked how much money was collected in fines.

 

Vice President Osorio responded that parking fines used to be so low that students deliberately left their cars in inappropriate places, preferring to pay the fines to paying for parking permits.

 

President King stated that he would research the information regarding the amount collected in fines.

Doug Deaver reported that the college was approached by two vendors, one encouraging the use of rooftop panels and one using the hillsides.  He stated that the college has through August to commit to the project to qualify for PG&E rebates, and at this point, prefers the hillside plan due to less risk to the roofs.
