SPECIAL PRESENTATION

 

Cabrillo College Foundation President Kurt Kniffen and Executive Director Melinda Silverstein presented the Cabrillo College Foundation annual report of fundraising and support to Cabrillo College.  In 2005-06, the Foundation raised $2.3M, ranking 4th out of 109 community colleges in the state.  Mr. Kniffen and Ms. Silverstein reviewed the CAP and WES programs and noted that the grant opportunities for faculty were tripled for the year.  Nearly 500 scholarships totaling $275K were given, the 4th largest for the number of scholarships in the state.  With over 4K donors, the Foundation ranks 3rd in the nation for the number of donors.  A survey was completed regarding fundraising priorities for the college that showed the keys to the success of the Foundation are its people, accountability and responsiveness.

 

Trustee Wildman noted that a satellite campus would hopefully open soon in the north county area.  She asked if there were any plans to help with funding any needs for that campus.

 

Ms. Silverstein responded that the north county campus was a high priority for the Foundation.

 

Trustee Reece thanked Mr. Kniffen for coming to the Board meeting and the Foundation board members for the time they contribute.  He noted that the increase in Foundation donations over the past several years coincided with the hiring of Melinda Silverstein, and credited her with making the Foundation one of the top in the nation.  Trustee Reece stated that whenever he attended conferences, others commented, “Oh Cabrillo, you’re the college with the great foundation.”  He applauded the Foundation staff and volunteers, noting how fortunate the college is to partner with the Cabrillo College Foundation.

 

Chair Smith commented on Ms. Silverstein’s obvious love for Cabrillo and knowledge of the community connections.  He noted that while Mr. Kniffen’s business area covered Monterey, San Benito and Santa Cruz counties, he selected the Cabrillo College Foundation as the place to serve, and expressed his appreciation to Mr. Kniffen.

ORAL REPORTS

 

Board Members’ Reports

 

Trustee Spencer expressed her appreciation to Vice President Ard and Director of Business Services Victoria Lewis for their work in developing the new community college funding formula and their efforts in getting the legislation passed at the state level.  She requested an assessment of the situation in Admissions and Records from the interim director for the next Board meeting.  Trustee Spencer suggested the development of a freshman orientation program, which could include an invitation to parents to come and learn how to support their students by encouraging them to not work over 20 hours per week and to make them feel special.

 

Trustee Reece commented that he recently attended an event welcoming the new interim UCSC Chancellor and it was good to see many of the Cabrillo administrators there.  He acknowledged UCSC for the invitation, noting that it was a pleasure to continue the close relationship.

 

Trustee Wildman thanked President King for arranging a visit to Comcast in San Jose regarding the shared parking area at the potential site in Scotts Valley.  She stated that she and Vice President Ard will go before the Scotts Valley Planning Commission for a use permit with a goal of offering classes as early as Spring 2007.  Trustee Wildman noted that she would miss Flex Week activities for the second time in ten years due to a conference out of state.

 

Trustee Stonebloom welcomed everyone to Watsonville and thanked Watsonville Center Director Rachel Mayo for hosting the meeting.

 

Chair Smith seconded Trustee Reece’s comments regarding the UCSC event and Interim Chancellor Blumenthal.  He read a report submitted by Trustee Garcia in her absence.  Trustee Garcia’s report reflected her attendance at a July 14th CCLC Board meeting where one of the primary agenda items was the community college initiative to address issues of funding, governance and student fees.  She noted that the initiative would be on the ballot in November 2007, and to support the initiative, each community college was committed to raising a certain amount of funds and signatures.  She asked for a report on how Cabrillo planned to meet its goal of raising $27,000 and 5,085 signatures, and requested that each Board member contribute $100 towards Cabrillo’s commitment.  Trustee Garcia’s report also noted that she attended the CCLC Student Trustee Workshop in Santa Clara on July 28th, where she presented a workshop on Student Trustees Rights and Privileges.  She presented several examples of the type of work Cabrillo student trustees have done as members of the Board, and it was interesting to hear how many of the student trustees felt they had no voice as members of their own governing boards.

TRUSTEE’S

REPORT

Superintendent’s Report

 

Superintendent/President Brian King looked back over the previous two years, noting that his first day on the job had been the August 2004 Board meeting at the Watsonville Center.  The previous summer, his wife had been in a serious car accident on the 1st day of July, so he was very appreciative that this summer was especially busy but fun by comparison.  It started with the Classified Appreciation Lunch on June 8th, the Seahawk Golf Tournament on June 12th, and the Stroke Center Raise the Roof event on June 17th.  There was a memorial for DSPS instructor Richard Griffiths at the Sesnon House, and the loss of Chancellor Denice Denton and the welcoming of interim Chancellor Blumenthal.  For the World’s Shortest Parade in Aptos on the 4th of July, President King enjoyed directing traffic.  He met with many staff over the summer, including a mini-retreat with the SEIU Council on July 6th.  On July 21st was the First Annual Family Picnic, which was a potluck with a bounce house and softball game at Anna Jean Cummins Park in Soquel.  On July 26th, President King attended the Archeology Open Hole event at the Presidio and July 28th was the Cabrillo Stage Guys and Dolls event.  President King reported that the budget news was looking good so far, and he was looking forward to as good a year as Cabrillo ever had.

 

 

SUPERINTENDENT’S

REPORT

 

SEIU

 

Janus Blume, SEIU President, thanked Vice President Ard for the successful contract negotiations, noting that she appreciated knowing that district fiduciary responsibilities were taken seriously and yet fairness was expected and given.  Ms. Blume reported that two major items were negotiated besides generous compensation:  relief for part-timers with pro-rated benefits, and a side letter to allow for hiring of short term employees and small contracts employees.

CCFT

 

Paul Harvell, CCFT Vice President, substituted for Debora Bone, CCFT President, and thanked the Board for their commitment to compensation with the contingency language.  He requested that in the future, the composition of the President’s Performance Assessment Feedback Team (PPAFT) be reconsidered with the addition of one representative from CCFT in addition to the representative from the Faculty Senate.  Mr. Harvell looked forward to members of the Board meeting with faculty during Flex Week.

Faculty Senate

 

Rory O'Brien, Faculty Senate President, stated that with four or five days left in the summer session, faculty were gearing up for the fall semester.  The first Faculty Senate meeting will be on Tuesday, August 22nd from 3:00-5:00 at the Horticulture Center and he invited the Board members to attend.  Dr. O’Brien stated that current faculty concerns revolve around facilities; while the new construction is exciting, faculty are interested in the secondary effects, the uses for the refurbished spaces as they become available for occupation.  He thanked Vice President Kilmer and Director of Facilities, Planning and Purchasing Doug Deaver for keeping information flowing.  Dr. O’Brien reported that there would be a special event on September 20th as part of a Constitution Day event, and more information would be forthcoming.

Trustee Reece asked if the cost of the eight year agreement would be a burden on Delta’s financial situation.  He noted that he wished Cabrillo could help more, and that it had been a mutually satisfactory relationship.

 

Ms. Gaukel responded that Delta was looking into grants and donations, but she considered the amount very possible and reasonable.

 

Trustee Spencer asked how many students attended Delta and how outreach was done.

 

Ms. Gaukel responded that they planned to grow by 20 students per year, with a staggered start time. Outreach included making sure schools know what services are available, plus churches and the YMCA. Ms. Gaukel noted that it was important that all avenues are explored.

President King presented the recommendation that the Governing Board approve the agreement with the Santa Cruz Metropolitan Transit District for bus services and authorize the Vice President, Business Services to execute a contract.

 

Trustee Reece commented that he had confidence in the district’s ability to negotiate the best possible deal with the Metro, but in Trustee Leopold’s absence and knowing his interest in the subject, he encouraged all efforts to increase bus ridership.  Trustee Reece noted that in times of increasing fuel costs, transit is a great alternative to cars and he hoped the college would continue to pursue development of a great transportation plan that includes the Watsonville Center.

 

President King responded that Vice President Osorio is in the process of revising the transportation plan.  He noted that he attended a 4.5 hour Santa Cruz Transportation Funding Task Force meeting the previous week, and Vice President Osorio and Dean Sesario Escoto were regularly involved in transit committee meetings.

 

Chair Smith commented that Cabrillo students should get as good a deal as UCSC students.

 

Trustee Wildman stated that the transportation management plan should include the proposed Scotts Valley site, also.

Item 21. Facilities Master Plan (FMP) Semi-Annual Update, Revision and Project Status

President King presented the recommendation that the Governing Board approve the Facilities Master Plan, as presented.

 

Trustee Reece reported that he attended a meeting of the Facilities Committee and was very impressed by the staff presentation regarding the FMP.  When the bond was planned and issued, it was a different time for the economy and construction costs have skyrocketed since then.  Trustee Reece stated that the staff and facilities team had done an excellent job; every project plan was well thought out.  He noted that some of the projects depend upon state bond issues but some were promised to voters as critical to the college’s mission and would be completed in spite of the challenges.

 

Vice President Ard expressed her appreciation to the Facilities Committee.  She stated that the projects were examined thoroughly to make sure enough funds were set aside, allocating $1M and the interest earnings to make sure.  She reported that a dialog was beginning with the City of Watsonville regarding the purchase of the library.

 

President King expressed his appreciation to Director of Facilities, Planning and Purchasing Doug Deaver with the hope that with the hiring of the new Buyer, Mr. Deaver could relax a little.

INFORMATION ITEMS

 

Item 22. Summary Report of the 2005-06 Classified Prioritization Staffing Process

A summary report of the 2005-06 Classified Prioritization Staffing process was provided for Governing Board information.

 

SEIU President Janus Blume reviewed how the process worked for SEIU, prioritizing the lists that were submitted by the components and considering their own input.  She noted that they would have had no way of knowing about the need for some of the Instructional positions, in particular, without the component lists.  Ms. Blume pointed out the list of SEIU feedback on the prioritized positions and recommendations for the process at the end of the Board item.  Ms. Blume noted the college’s institutional commitment to adequate staffing and stated that this prioritization process and the identification of limited funds were a start, but not the same thing.

 

Trustee Reece asked if consideration had been given to the Scotts Valley campus.

 

Ms. Blume responded that it had not yet been given any consideration.

Item 23. Children’s Center Report

A status report on the Children’s Center, including accreditation and contract monitoring, was provided for Governing Board information.

 

Vice President Kilmer and Children’s Center Director Ann Edgerton presented a PowerPoint presentation reviewing the increasing complexity of children’s center management over the last 35 years.  They reviewed the accreditation history of the Cabrillo College Children’s Center, noting that full re-accreditation was received for March 2006 through March 2011.  Recent challenges such as contract monitoring review requirements, a remediation plan for areas of non-compliance, a new boss, less summer staffing, and more legal codes and contracts were discussed.  Appreciation for the efforts, dedication and hard work of the Children’s Center staff was expressed.

 

Trustee Spencer thanked Ms. Edgerton for her efforts in maintaining the accreditation status, as it was a serious issue to possibly lose funding for the center.  She noted that hundreds of men and women are not at Cabrillo due to child care issues.  Ms. Spencer stated her understanding of the tedious nature of following all the regulations involved in running nursery schools and thanked all the staff for making the Cabrillo Children’s Center a model.

 

Ms. Edgerton explained the requirement for parents to be college students, and for monitoring of those parents’ student status.  She stated that a letter went out in English and Spanish explaining the situation and that the issue would be enforced in the future.

 

Trustee Reece questioned how the new standards would be maintained.

 

Ms. Edgerton responded that prophylactic, proactive measures were now in place, and staff would receive training.

 

Trustee Stonebloom expressed her appreciation for all that had been done, dealing with children, curriculum and training providers, along with the details of governance and regulation.  She hoped that with the needs of regulatory agencies in the next couple years, curriculum would not take second place.  Trustee Stonebloom stated that she served a while back as the Board’s representative on a child care committee, and she wondered if that body continued to meet.  She would like to see more informal conversations continue regarding the direction of the Children’s Center.

 

Ms. Edgerton responded that she would also like to receive parental input, and once meetings were scheduled, she would let Trustee Stonebloom know.

Item 24. Datatel Payroll Conversion Project Update

An update on the Datatel payroll conversion project was provided for Governing Board information.

 

Trustee Spencer asked if staff was confident about meeting the January 1st implementation date and if additional resources were needed.

 

Vice President Ard responded that resources were stretched thin and consulting services had been cut back, with hopes for more in-house support.  She stated that the college received a good review from the County Office of Education (COE), and there would be a good opportunity to run parallel payrolls in July, August and September.  The auditor will test approximately 60 employees for accuracy.

 

Trustee Reece noted his concern about the payroll tax issue, wondering if there was any responsibility for Board members.  He asked if there was a Plan B if Plan A did not work.

 

Vice President Ard responded that she believed it would be ready to go, and results would be checked by the auditor.

 

Trustee Reece reaffirmed the commitment of the Board to this high priority issue and said to be sure to let them know if more resources were needed, including scheduling special Board meetings.

Priorities Resulting from Program Planning Processes

Item 26. AR 1090:  Cabrillo College Conflict of Interest Code

The Political Reform Act requires every multi-county agency to review its conflict of interest code biennially.  Accordingly, Administrative Regulation 1090, Cabrillo College Conflict of Interest Code has been revised to reflect current designated positions at the college that must file conflict of interest declarations annually and to reflect the current category definitions.  The revisions were presented for Governing Board information.

 

Chair Smith explained a different way to categorize the schedules that might make the forms more self-explanatory the next time the conflict of interest code is up for revision.

Item 27. Watsonville Center Annual Report

The Watsonville Center Annual Report was provided for Governing Board information. 

 

Director of the Watsonville Center Rachel Mayo welcomed everyone to Watsonville.  She reviewed the center’s enrollment records, explaining that marketing plans were being reviewed.  Ms. Mayo reported that students would be distributing brochures, new classes were being offered, and every classroom was now multi-media.  She noted that evening counseling had been less available during the past year but efforts were being made to change that, and the community was being allowed to use the facility.

 

Trustee Reece noted with interest that students could have library materials transported to the Watsonville Center.  He suggested that it be put in the transportation plan, as it saved trips.  He wondered if a video system could be set up for counseling for Watsonville or the Scotts Valley site.

 

Vice President Owen responded that the video conferencing idea had been reviewed but there were bandwidth issues, and the first priority was regular internet traffic.  He added that the Technology Plan would include a recommendation to establish a foundation for equipment and configuration standards, noting that staff is interested in the project for counseling and other areas.

 

Vice President Osorio commented that a video conferencing system for counseling was tried for the San Lorenzo Valley and it did not work out well.  They would rather have more counselors.  A system to offer quick email responses was better received.

 

Trustees Reece and Spencer agreed that they would like to see an effort made for video counseling and tutorial services.

 

Chair Smith suggested contacting the adjacent library, noting that they had a good sized data line that was discrete from the rest of the city.

 

Vice President Owen responded that it would depend upon how their grant was written whether it could be shared, but it would be worth checking.

 

Chair Smith asked if a study had been done to determine why some students go to other community colleges like Hartnell, Gavilan or MPC from within Santa Cruz County.

 

Vice President Kilmer responded that a zip code study had been done.  The answer seemed to concern mostly the area of study.  She added that the good news was that Cabrillo gets more of their students than they get of Cabrillo’s.
