Whereas in lieu of pursuing legislation to require consultation with local academic senates on the California Work Opportunity and Responsibility for Kids (CalWORKs) program application, the Academic Senate made a formal agreement with the Chancellor's Office to require the local academic senate president's signature on the application, and
Whereas a recent update sent by the Chancellor to all CEOs indicated that there was "no statutory requirement for the signature," so therefore an application would still be valid without the local senate president's signature,
Resolved that the Academic Senate urge local senate presidents to recognize the importance of their signature or lack of it on the California Work Opportunity and Responsibility for Kids (CalWORKs) application, and
Resolved that the Academic Senate urge local senates to be substantially involved in the development of that application, and
Resolved that the Academic Senate request that local senate presidents contact the Academic Senate if college CalWORKs applications are sent forward without their signatures.
