Whereas, AB 1725 funded faculty and staff development at $5.2 million to meet the growing needs of faculty and staff of the California community colleges;
Resolved, That the Academic Senate for California Community College encourage local senates to use their local shared governance processes to develop plans for supporting faculty and staff development if the funds are not reinstated in the Governor's 2002 - 2003 budget; and
Resolved, That the Academic Senate for California Community College encourage the Chancellor's Office not to lower staff development reporting requirements even if funding is not reinstated.
Utilized survey information (March 06) to help address local senates needs through breakouts, leadership, Voc Ed Leadership, and Teaching Institute. Need to ask Chancellor's Office what is their current practice with staff development report and data collection in Fall 06.
