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.
The Standards and Practices Committee found this resolution not feasible. The reconfiguring of the areas would not address issues raised in the resolution.
