Whereas, Some California community colleges have adopted compressed and/or alternative calendars and more are considering doing so;
Whereas, Compressed alternative calendars may affect the quality of student learning;
Whereas, Title 5, 53200, defines student success as an academic and professional matter; and
Whereas, Reliable studies on the effect of alternative and compressed calendars on student learning have not yet been published and widely disseminated;
Resolved, That the Academic Senate for California Community College surge local senates to take a leading role in any decision to adopt compressed and/or alternative calendars since the decision will impact the student learning experience.
Not much of an issue anymore.
