The Standards and Practices Committee found this resolution not feasible. The reconfiguring of the areas would not address issues raised in the resolution.
Whereas, Under the current Academic Senate for California Community Colleges area configuration, some areas cover so much territory that attendance at area meetings requires a substantial drive; and
Whereas, Some areas currently hold two meetings per session to reduce the distance faculty must travel to attend these meetings;
Resolved, That the Academic Senate explore the feasibility of reconfiguring the areas from four to a minimum of six, all of which would retain the present system of election by area; and
Resolved, That the Academic Senate report to the Plenary Body in a breakout at the Fall 2001 Session.
