SB919 - Fairness In Tax/Fee Revenue

California Community College Enrollment Fees

Whereas the Governor has proposed an increase in California community college student enrollment fees to $15.0 a unit, and


Whereas CPEC has considered a proposal that California community college student enrollment fees be fixed at 20% of the cost of instruction, a proposal which would raise enrollment fees, and


Whereas the Academic Senate for California Community Colleges should not support increased enrollment fees to fund financial aid as is in the Governor's proposal, and

Differential Fee

Whereas California's economic recovery depends on ready access to education, and


Whereas economic studies show that workers often need to be re-educated every five years for new positions,


Resolved that the Academic Senate for California Community Colleges reaffirm its opposition to the differential fee, and


Resolved that the Academic Senate for California Community Colleges support the sunset of the differential fee on January 1, 1996.

Students Voting on Curriculum

Whereas the students consultation group has requested a Title 5 regulation change requiring at least one voting member on the local curriculum committee, and

Whereas decision making authority on curriculum is vested in the faculty and the governing board with current regulations providing for local academic senates to allow student voting on the curriculum committee if it is appropriate in the context of their local processes, and

Adoption of Health Services Rules and Regulations

Whereas Section 76355 of the Education Code allows governing boards of community college districts to require students to pay fees (of no more than $10 per semester) to support health services programs, and

Whereas Section 76355 was approved by the legislature in 1992 and calls for the Board of Governors to adopt regulations that describe the types of health services included in the health service program, and

Funds for Health Services

Whereas Health Center services are essential to our students, and

Whereas the number of students who receive Board of Governors waivers is steadily increasing, and

Whereas Board of Governors grant recipients have their health fees waived, thus reducing the health fee funds available at a college for health services,


Resolved that the Academic Senate for California Community Colleges recommend that the Board of Governors include in Board of Governors tuition grants funds for campus health service fees, and

Training for Shared Governance

Whereas the roles of faculty and students in the governance of local colleges are supportive and compatible, and

Whereas the role of students could benefit appreciably from faculty support of mentoring, education, training, and appropriate voting status to assure their effective participation in the governance of local colleges,

Student Equity Update

Whereas Student Equity Plans have been mandated, and

Whereas Student Equity implementation strategies are also required,


Resolved that the Academic Senate for California Community Colleges hold a breakout at a future session on the progress of Student Equity Plans and implementation strategies.
