Whereas, Recommendation 3.1 (draft dated September 30, 2011) of the California Community Colleges Task Force on Student Success (established in response to Senate Bill 1143, Liu, 2010) states that “Continuing students should lose enrollment priority if they

  1. Do not follow their original or a revised education plan;
  2. Are placed for two consecutive terms on Academic Probation (GPA below 2.0 after attempting 12 or more units) or Progress Probation (failure to successfully complete at least 50 percent of their classes);
  3. Fail to declare a program of study by the end of their third term; or
  4. Accrue 100 units (not counting Basic Skills and ESL courses);

 

Whereas, Drastic cutbacks in state and local funding have forced section cuts that have not allowed students to fulfill their education plans; and

Whereas, Such changes to priority registration for continuing students could dramatically and negatively impact student equity goals;

Resolved, That the Academic Senate for California Community Colleges request that recommendation 3.1 (as of September 30, 2011) of the California Community Colleges Task Force on Student Success not move forward until the potential impact on traditionally underserved and under-performing populations has been thoroughly researched and it has been determined that there will be no disproportionate negative impact on these populations.
