Whereas the requirement that the California Community Colleges have an academic calendar of 175 teaching days is a vestige of the K-12 system, and

Whereas the 175-day schedule is inconsistent with those of other segments of postsecondary education, and

Whereas the teaching time for courses in community colleges should be defined in terms of instructional hours rather than teaching days,


Resolved that the Academic Senate study regulations governing teaching days and instructional hours in California Community Colleges, and

Resolved that these findings be presented to the 1988 Spring Conference of the Academic Senate.
