COMMUNICATIONS

 

SPECIAL PRESENTATIONS

 

Measure D Bond Oversight Committee

Kris Reyes, Chair of the Citizens’ Measure D Bond Oversight Committee, presented the 2006 Annual Report to the Governing Board.  He noted that many familiar faces were in the audience who supported the Measure D campaign.  Mr. Reyes thanked staff for regularly providing information in a clear format.

 

Vice President Ard introduced new committee member Bob Petersen, appointed at the August Board meeting.  She noted a typographical correction to the published committee report on page 3; the budgeted amount should read $9M.

 

Trustee Reece expressed the gratitude of the Board to the members of the Bond Oversight Committee for the hours they spent to ensure to the community that the college was on the up and up in the way bond funds were spent.

 

Trustee Leopold added that the community resonated with the campaign due to the oversight committee; therefore, the committee carried that burden.  He appreciated the time members spent on that work and welcomed Mr. Petersen to the committee.

 

Student Learning Outcomes

Marcy Alancraig, Learning Outcomes Assessment Coordinator and English Instructor, provided an update on Student Learning Outcomes to the Governing Board.  She reviewed the progress of the last two years and showed the SLO website, noting that Cabrillo is famous all over the state for its progress and exemplary model SLO program.  Ms. Alancraig reported that a new college committee had been formed, the SLO Assessment Review Committee, which would provide an overview of assessment activities, report back on progress, identify arising issues, and facilitate dialog on those issues.  At the end of her presentation, Ms. Alancraig played a recording of Dr. Rory O’Brien’s “Core Four” theme song, for the enjoyment and amusement of the Board.

 

Trustee Leopold commented that he was pleased to see the campus wide approach, and interested to hear about using the transfer breakfast for a feedback survey.  He encouraged using transfer center advisory partners to get feedback on how well prepared Cabrillo students come to them.

 

Ms. Alancraig responded that the partners cannot officially give that kind of information.

 

Trustee Wildman expressed her appreciation for Ms. Alancraig’s attitude of excitement and fun around the development of SLOs, noting that it helps explain the success of the program.  She thanked Ms. Alancraig for returning to the Board with the update and reminder about SLOs and the Core Four, and she echoed Trustee Leopold’s comments regarding the involvement of the whole campus.

 

As an educator, Trustee Garcia wished that K-12 would take the same approach to SLOs, and asked Ms. Alancraig how all components were making the same assessments, and if there was a template.

 

Ms. Alancraig responded that the Instruction component had a template, but in other areas, other formats were being used.  She added that what works for areas such as Health Services is different from EOPS, etc.  Ms. Alancraig stated that in some areas such as Business Services, great strategic plans are under development and adding a survey of users was enough to fulfill SLO requirements.

 

Trustee Garcia asked if the Board would see the entire report.

 

Ms. Alancraig responded that it would be a lot to see and sort through; the committee planned to summarize the reports and then report back to the Board.  She added that the full report would also be stored because it would be shown to the accreditation team.

 

Trustee Reece stated that he was delighted to hear about the progress, noting that the faculty and staff participation reminded him of the NASA quote about reaching the goal, “Don’t know if we will, but if we don’t, it won’t be because of me.”

 

Trustee Stonebloom stated that she had spoken now and then with Ms. Alancraig about SLOs and had checked out the website. She found everything to be very accessible, with the pdf files very easy to use.  She asked if there was a role for Board members.

 

Ms. Alancraig responded that she would consider that offer.

 

Trustee Spencer expressed her appreciation for the presentation and noted the difficulty in measuring and evaluating the effectiveness of services other than instruction.

 

Ms. Alancraig responded that there was a spirit of experimentation about the project, especially in areas of administrative services.

ORAL REPORTS

 

Board Members' Reports

 

Trustee Wildman reported that she attended another Scotts Valley Planning Commission meeting and they have now approved the use permit for the proposed site.  She acknowledged the work of Brian King, Pegi Ard, Doug Deaver and others in getting the permit approved, noting that it was a pleasure to attend the meetings and represent Cabrillo.  Trustee Wildman thanked CCFT and SEIU for the opportunity to address them earlier in the evening.

 

Trustee Garcia reported that on August 11th, she met UCSC Interim Chancellor George Blumenthal at an event, along with Chair Al Smith and Rachel Mayo.  She noted that she was impressed by his listening skills and he was open to working with Cabrillo in supporting student success.  Trustee Garcia attended All College Day and was pleased with keynote speaker Dr. Manuel Pastor’s address, which focused on the changing demographics and economics in California.  She encouraged Cabrillo to embrace and continue to support and develop programs appropriate for increasing the enrollment of Latinos.

 

Trustee Leopold commented that the All College Day event was a great success and thanked all those involved.  Following the challenge by Dr. Pastor, he asked President King, Vice President Kilmer and Dean Pfotenhauer to attend a COPA meeting in Live Oak regarding social justice.  They attended, along with hundreds of people organized for greater educational opportunities for primary Spanish speakers. Trustee Leopold thanked President King for speaking at the meeting, noting that the most emotional moment of the evening came when he was asked if Cabrillo would partner with the community and he hugged the man asking the question.  Trustee Leopold stated the importance of Cabrillo’s involvement in the project.

 

Chair Smith stated that he, too, found the UCSC Interim Chancellor very approachable and was sure there would be many more opportunities to build an excellent relationship.  He reported that there was a large showing from the Cabrillo family at Ward Garing’s funeral and appreciated the support.  Chair Smith noted that he spoke at All College Day and found the event as fun as usual, with everyone present in listening mode.  He reported that he met with students at their Student Senate retreat at Camp Kennolyn and enjoyed it very much.

 

Trustee Reece reported that of the three trustees up for election this November, only he was unopposed.  He stated that Al Smith and Claudine Wildman had opposing candidates and he hoped the campus would rally behind their current trustees and show their support.  Trustee Reece reported that he had been pleased to arrange a lunch with President King and Diane Harrison, the new president of CSUMB, noting that it was great to be forming alliances with college partners.

REPORTS

 

Student Trustee’s Report

 

Student Trustee Grahame Bissell reported that the Student Senate’s Welcome Back lunch was a success.  Many clubs and programs had tables to promote their services.  Mr. Bissell introduced Student Senators Fabian Gauthier and Ryan Kaplan and reported on the recent ASCC Senate Retreat at Camp Kennolyn.  He noted that the Student Senate is working on activities for Halloween, Thanksgiving, and a food drive event in the near future.

TRUSTEE’S

REPORT

Superintendent’s Report

 

Superintendent/President Brian King reported that one of his highlights of the year is attending the Student Senate retreat.  He thanked students Yolanda Inchauregui, Fabian Gauthier and Ryan Kaplan for coming to the Board meeting and their efforts, and expressed his appreciation to Dean Sesario Escoto for his organization and support on behalf of the students.  President King echoed the previous comments regarding All College Day and thanked Francine Van Meter and Renée Kilmer for making Flex Week so successful.  President King reported on two hospitality events with a delegation from the city of Pinghu, China and its sister city, Watsonville; one was hosted by Cabrillo at the Sesnon House and one by UCSC.  President King stated that the MOU with UCSC for a cooperative arrangement for housing Cabrillo students at the University Center in Santa Cruz was almost complete after much work by Vice Presidents Kilmer, Ard and Osorio.  He reported that he would meet again with COPA on October 16th to discuss working with the Live Oak community regarding a potential place to hold classes.  President King met with Tom Brown and Rachael Spencer to review charter school opportunities to partner with Cabrillo.  Noting the lunch with Gary Reece and Diane Harrison from CSUMB, the HELP meeting on Friday at CSUMB, and the many service area meetings, President King stated that there were many opportunities to build collaborations and partnerships.  He commented that Vice President Osorio’s announcement on All College Day of his upcoming retirement in June meant it was time to begin to think about a replacement and transition, but it would be difficult to find a person to fill the role of someone like Manuel Osorio who had been here for decades.

 

 

SUPERINTENDENT’S

REPORT

 

Faculty Senate

 

Rory O’Brien, Faculty Senate President, reported that the semester was off to a good start with classes either filling up or full.  He commented that he saw Vice President Osorio working on Saturday at the end of the enrollment period and enrollment numbers had recovered from their early low.  He thanked Vice President Ard for her work on the equalization funding and her dedication to community colleges. Dr. O’Brien commented that Trustee Wildman should be very proud of her efforts to open the Scotts Valley center, noting that he saw the preliminary schedule of classes and it would be a really good part of the county to attend the college.  Dr. O’Brien invited everyone to attend Constitution Day events on September 20th at the Sesnon House.

 

 

FACULTY SENATE

SEIU

 

Janus Blume, SEIU President, reported that in the second week of the semester, she could feel the difference in the Counseling Department.  Now that late registration was over, so was the scrambling for counseling appointments and classes.  Ms. Blume reported that starting the year with two new LIAs and the SARS system was making a huge difference and she looked forward to a very good year for Counseling.  She stated that the college was moving forward with hiring the positions as recommended by the Classified Prioritization Process as well as some temporary part-time positions and it was very satisfying to see that come about.

 

 

SEIU

 

CCFT

 

Debora Bone, CCFT President, offered her congratulations on the Scotts Valley site, noting that perseverance paid off.  She thanked Vice President Ard and the payroll department for their work on the CCFT deductions issue.  She asked for consideration in the future for inclusion of a CCFT representative on the PPAFT team, though she was pleased with the selection of Michael Mangin as the Faculty Senate representative.  Ms. Bone noted the incredible amount of work involved in SLOs with the 108 course outlines so far, stating that the workload factor would be important in the next round of negotiations.  She acknowledged the good job done by Trustee Wildman and Chair Smith over the years and stated that an endorsement process was being discussed to hopefully let the community know.

Trustee Leopold suggested that the motion include the typographical correction on the report, page 3, that the budgeted amount should be $9M.

Item 16. 2006-07 Final Budget

President King presented the recommendation that the Governing Board approve the 2006-07 Final Budget.

 

Vice President Osorio reported that enrollment was currently down about 2.3% FTES.

 

Vice President Ard stated that each 1% FTES represented approximately $500,000 to the college.  She commented that the CPC needed to continue the discussion regarding the college’s reserve position and she would report back to the Board.

 

Trustee Reece echoed Vice President Ard’s concern regarding the reserve position, noting that some things are outside the control of the college such as demographics and statistics.  He stated that the Board did not want to get into a position of approving non-realistic budgets and while he understood the reasons, he was disappointed to not see the reserve increased.  He asked to please make it a priority in future budgets and hoped the college community understood that it was not the fault of the administration, just the facts of FTES.  Trustee Reece appreciated the detail in the budget report.

 

Trustee Leopold appreciated the work of the staff on the budget, noting that it was one of the most important Board votes.  He commented that community college budgets were good this year due to it being an election year and supported increasing the reserve as a priority this year rather than planning to do so in the future.

 

Trustee Garcia commented that she thought the minimum reserve was currently mandated at 5%.  She asked how the one-time basic skills funds allocation could be spent and why there was not a separate category for PFE funds.  Vice Presidents Kilmer and Ard responded that the funds could be spent on ESL and citizenship, and PFE funds were now included in the base.

 

It was moved and seconded (Leopold/Reece) to approve the 2006-07 Final Budget.

 

The motion carried with the following roll call vote:

 

AYES:          Garcia, Leopold, Reece, Smith, Spencer, Stonebloom, Wildman

Item 18. Lease Agreement:  Scotts Valley Classrooms

Chair Smith excused himself from the room for the duration of this item due to a potential conflict of interest with his employment, explaining that he had also excused himself from the Closed Session discussion of the matter.  Vice Chair Rachael Spencer took the gavel.

 

Vice Chair Spencer presented the recommendation that the Governing Board authorize the Vice President, Business Services to enter into a lease agreement with Scotts Valley Partners for 7,350 square feet at 104 Whispering Pines Drive, Scotts Valley.

 

Trustee Wildman commented that a north county site had been on the Cabrillo Master Plan for a long time and this was a significant event.  She thanked staff for their efforts, noting that it was an excellent space and looked forward to its opening in spring 2007.

 

Trustee Reece echoed Trustee Wildman’s comments, stating that the landlord was a longtime friend of Cabrillo, so it was a double pleasure to support this item.  He commented that it was a wonderful location at a more than fair rate.

 

Donna Ziel, from the Valley Women’s Group, was acknowledged in the audience.  She attended all the meetings to help open a north county site.

 

Doug Deaver acknowledged Matt Shelton, representing the Scotts Valley property.

 

Trustee Leopold recognized Trustee Wildman’s efforts to open the north county center, noting that over six to seven years of efforts, it would have been easy to forget her obligations in north county, but she had been dogged in her persistence.  He added that even when sites did not work out, Trustee Wildman made sure that all the staff, including the president, made it a priority to get the campus going.  Trustee Leopold stated that Cabrillo was committing significant resources to this effort to build support in the community so it can be a success like it was in Watsonville, and he thanked the community members as well for their support.

 

Vice Chair Spencer thanked Donna Ziel for her constant efforts, pushing gently but firmly.  Ms. Ziel responded that she was not just representing herself but would be reporting back to her group.

 

It was moved and seconded (Wildman/Garcia) to authorize the Vice President, Business Services to enter into a lease agreement with Scotts Valley Partners for 7,350 square feet at 104 Whispering Pines Drive, Scotts Valley.  The motion carried unanimously (Smith absent).  Chair Smith returned to the room.

Item 22. Implementation of AB540 at Cabrillo College

A report regarding the implementation of AB 540 at Cabrillo College was provided for Governing Board information.

 

Trustee Garcia stated that since she was the one who requested this information, she was pleased to see that undocumented students were one of the targets for FTES.  Noting the addendum which addressed adult education and was passed in 2001, she asked if Cabrillo had been applying it for the last five years.

 

Vice President Osorio responded that the exemption had been applied since it was enacted.

 

Trustee Garcia asked how high school students are informed, especially if they know they are undocumented and do not come here to apply.

 

Vice President Osorio responded that they are informed when they fill out applications, at Financial Aid, or by EOPS outreach and Summer Migrant Ed programs.

 

Trustee Garcia was pleased to see this in action but requested that it be put into policy.  She suggested reviewing policies from Ventura and San Jose-Evergreen.

 

Trustee Leopold was also pleased to learn that it was happening at Cabrillo as he learned about it through COPA, and the concern of undocumented residents about applying to Cabrillo.  He encouraged Vice Presidents Kilmer and Osorio to talk to other community colleges about what can be done within the confines of the law, as some have good outreach programs.  He asked if the form had been translated into Spanish as another tool and asked for a report from CHAC about their plan of action for the year.

 

Trustee Garcia commented that these students do not qualify for financial aid; at the federal level there is the Dream Act, which did not get out of committee but will be brought up again next year.

Item 23. Office of Admissions and Records Status Report

A status report on the Office of Admissions and Records was provided to the Governing Board.

 

Vice President Osorio reported that Interim Director of Admissions and Records John Mullen had done quite a few things to streamline processes for students and staff had responded well to him.  He is developing leaders among the staff, and when enrollment was down about 8%, he initiated a call system with Vice President Bob Owen that received quite a lot of response.

 

Trustee Spencer commented that she was very aware of the Herculean efforts in A&R, including the add slips in the classrooms and Financial Aid handing out funds.  She asked that her regards be passed on to A&R staff.

 

Vice President Osorio reported that the process was moving forward for the recruitment and hiring of the Assistant Director of A&R as they were ready to screen applications, and the Director position was advertised and closes on November 2nd.  John Mullen indicated his willingness to stay for a while.

 

Trustee Leopold added that A&R had really put forth additional effort recently to reduce the low enrollment figures.  He stated that he had heard people say how much they liked working there, and the dedication to students was a great Cabrillo trait.  He was pleased to hear the hiring was moving forward on both the Assistant Director and Director positions.

Item 24. Counseling and Transfer/Career Center Update

An update regarding the Counseling and Transfer/Career Center was provided for Governing Board information.

 

Thanking both Shawn Ogimachi and Mario Garcia, Vice President Osorio provided a PowerPoint presentation update on Counseling and the Transfer/Career Center.

 

Answering Board member questions, it was noted that:

Students may go to counselors or be referred to tutorials for help.  Faculty are wonderful about identifying students who need additional assistance and referring them appropriately.

Eighteen teaching units were provided to Counseling by Instruction.  This helped ease the load and provide more time for students.

Mario Garcia is working 30% for Counseling and 70% for Transfer, working with Mary Ellen Sullivan and Carolyn Jackson to make sure students get what they need.  Donna Mekis has made herself available for consultation on difficult TAAs.

Mario Garcia will attend the next state level conference.  He frequently hears of Ms. Mekis’ wonderful reputation and he will make sure Cabrillo does not fall behind.

There will be an experienced counselor available in Scotts Valley, as in Watsonville.

Evaluation piece reflects 10% increase in transfer rates; Board members would like three years of information for comparison.

SARS has given tremendous ability to break down information by appointment codes (programs, problems, counselors, transfers, colleges, etc.) for internal data.  External data will be comparison to other colleges.

If 10% increase in transfer is for overall, please identify and have the same expectation for underrepresented students.

Do not lose sight of tracking vocational and occupational programs, which are also goals of the community and students.

Item 25. Santa Cruz County Metro Transit District/Cabrillo Bus Pass Revised Contract and Options

A report regarding the Santa Cruz County Metro Transit District and Cabrillo bus pass revised contract and options was provided for Governing Board information.

 

Trustee Wildman noted that she had asked for information regarding the transit service into Scotts Valley, including the San Lorenzo Valley, as quite a number of students from SLV might be expected to attend the Scotts Valley site.  She requested Scotts Valley representation in the discussion of bus issues, reminding staff that the Scotts Valley transit center is very close to the newly leased space.

 

Trustee Leopold commented that the report reflected a shared responsibility for transit issues. He suggested that one person could specialize and pick up more information.

 

It was noted that Manuel Osorio, Sesario Escoto, Brian King and Gabe Gutierrez currently attend many transit meetings and there are too many for one person to cover them all.  Manuel Osorio is the point person for the issue.

 

Trustee Leopold, speaking to Student Trustee Grahame Bissell, stated that he would love to embrace the Student Senate in the issue of transit to get a better sense of what would help the students use more transit while understanding it is an expensive system to run.

 

Vice President Osorio stated that he would make sure to have students on the team.

 

Student Trustee Bissell responded that the issue was one that directly affected him as he gave up driving by choice and uses a bicycle.  He noted that most students loved their cars but he fully supported alternate transportation.
