Whereas achieving the highest possible rate of success for all population groups is among one of the highest priorities of California community colleges, and
Whereas achieving the best outcomes requires planning that includes research, goals, budgets, and implementation activities, and
Whereas the state should require that districts submit such plans on a regular basis,
Resolved that the Academic Senate urge the Board of Governors to revise Title 5 Regulations 54220 (see Appendix 1) to require that districts submit a current student equity plan no later than one year after revisions are developed and approved by the Board of Governors and that districts revise their plans every three years thereafter.
A letter transmitting the resolution was sent to local senates. The President continues to advocate for updated equity plans in Consultation Council and before the Board of Governors.
