Whereas the Master Plan Commission did not address the issue of the various college calendars in the state and the effect of this variety on students, and

Whereas there are pressures to have year-round schools in K-12, and

Whereas there are efforts to increase required general education units for community college students to 39, and


Whereas there may be advantages for community colleges to having a uniform calendar to accommodate students who transfer, and

Whereas there may be educational advantages to having a year- round calendar based on four semesters of 12 weeks each,


Resolved that the Academic Senate ask the Executive Committee to prepare background material on these issues for a breakout discussion at the 1988 Spring Conference.
