well so congratulations greater said whoever was involved with all those that
were involved but thank you i present longer the obviously we’re thrilled to
have you here that I was trying to find I have a picture in the early 2005-6
somewhere in there where we had probably five or six full-time faculty members
and one with the old place we used to meet and to have this large of a group
and i think you said the number 118 new faculty members here that is a
tremendous influx of of new blood to the college and so that is people can look
good bad indifferent it is exciting and hopefully it’s exciting for all of you
only hope this to be nothing but everything you wish for hope for will
actually happen and so thank you all very much and it’s really a pleasure to
be here it is nice to see when we hire new to full-time faculty members and all
the courses that were represented very exciting and it’s a lot better than
having just a few i love to see that because that mean things are going a lot
better than it was back in the day so anyway congratulations you all and and
enjoy and none of you are having courses this evening so okay people are you are
well let you go again maybe at seven o’clock trustee Otto just very briefly
you represent with the colleagues it have joined you in the last two years
over a third of the entire faculty and it’s a it’s
inspiring and and makes me smile that we have so many new faces and we’ve got 850
million dollars to spend on new buildings and improvements and we hope
you’ll all be a part of the decisions to remove this College forward what you
will learn if you haven’t spent much time here before is that this community
loves this college and embraces it in ways that are very rare in the community
college world and we’re looking to to work with that and you and
congratulations a trustee my little to the worth the wait 28 welcome thank you
for being here I did have a great pleasure of meeting
some of you I i attended a couple of your meetings on those orientation days
i was very happy to do that also I i would like to thank the board
president Baxter for asking that those the names of the faculty members who
could not be here also be recognized particularly because we we have one
faculty member who was hired full time to replace the a full-time position in
the journalism program that we haven’t had for many years so that makes me very
proud Roger and we have a female welding instructor Julie and I thought that’s
very notable so I commend this group I welcome you and I just want to give you
one little bit of advice you know a month from now when it’s tough to get to
class and you know students and you have a stack of papers to grade and a lot of
stuff to do just remember why you’re here remember this day carry the excitement
of the state with you and and just always be reminded that you’re here to
inspire students so welcome and enjoy thank you thank you for coming this
evening and thank you jerry Florence for doing an outstanding job ok 2.8 we are doing of the agenda
trustee baxter president master I’d like to propose that we hear from the
bargaining units first if we can reorder the agenda so they can be heard for
sooner than at the end of the meeting got appreciate that I just a one-time
request over now yeah okay the three unit representatives here or
maybe those who are present is your 1 margin a deer come on forward Karen’s
here is going on here okay so it’s the one that is not here shows up later yeah we can hear at that time ok i don’t
know what the time limit is our time with that took five minutes five minutes okay Jade would you like port or Karen
whoever gets here first you have little children you can walk i’ll have fast
evening board and president oakley administrators faculty staff students
everyone else in attendance I forgot my cheat sheet in my car
grabbed the wrong set of papers but anyway so let’s see thinking of my order well I’ll go out of order so we changed our name to lbcc fa so that
stands for long beach city college faculty Association rep council voted on
that last Friday so we have to complete some paperwork with CTA to make that
official so we’re transitioning to lbcc fa also a red council meeting on Friday
we voted to partner with trustees Baxter and Zia on the topic of the homeless
student population so if she has not already Emily gehrman will be reaching
out to you she’s going to be our a point of contact
so we were unsure about exactly what this entails so I said they probably
have some ideas of what helped you might need from us so we’re taking that on
with you and let’s see a prop 55 is on the ballot in November just mentioning
that one that’s the extension of the prop 30 funds and just want to make it a
notice out there to everybody watching that that’s something that LBC cfa and
CTA encourages us to vote YES on to support these continued funds and in
addition prop 58 is the proposition on bilingual education this is also something that states ETA
is taking a pro stance on so we encourage that so also the we have sunshine our document for
negotiations I see it’s on the agenda for tonight’s meeting and the district
has as well we look forward to working with the district through the
negotiations process we had a meeting today with our faculty and have another
one tomorrow we’re kind of reaching out to make sure that what we are asking for
at the table and is reflective of what our faculty desire so we also did a
survey this summer on basically questions connected to the contract so
we feel were ready for the negotiations process to convene after the next board
meeting hopefully and again I think the last thing i want to mention is that CCA
I’m sorry lbcc fa wants to you know be a part of the the process you all know
that we know we have a role in the screening committee we just you know 12
a trustee baxter remind you that we want to be involved in the process and
consulted every step of the way and including but not limited even to if
there’s going to be an interim president president we love to be consulted our
constituent groups would as well as reviewing the consultant list and the
search criteria for next president so without my cheat sheet i believe i’ve
covered it thank you thank you Karen average oh by
the way a million years ago of the union was known as the Faculty Association so
it’s kind of interesting there’s a that Fitzgerald who is up in heaven was a
long time ago good evening superintendent president
oakley board president Baxter and members of the board of trustees and
thank you for accommodating us i was i brought my my pajamas and my sleeping
bag i was prepared this way to the end wow I wanted just to give
a brief report on some of the things that have been going on with the
part-time faculty so we had a very successful orientation in August um probably had about a hundred and
sixty-five participants at the part-time faculty orientation this is probably the
fourth year i would say $PERCENT of the orientation and it’s a a perfect time
for all new and returning part-time faculty to learn everything that they
basically need to know about working here and to just really get in touch
with some great resources to help them along during the semester I really want
to thank Vice President Terry long for getting that organized and all of those
who gave presentations every one from John car and payroll you know so it’s
really quite great information is so very helpful many part-time faculty were
invited and included in the pre-college day event on the strategic plan
organized by karen kane and even bag and Karen approached me and said she would
like to include some part-time faculty how could we sort of strategize around
that so we looked at those part-time faculty who have been serving on
committees who had shown up at some strategic plan meetings already have
been in the leadership academy and got invitations to them to attend the
strategic plan event and that was great very successful we had some very
positive comments on college day at our constituents meeting from those
part-time faculty and the ones who hadn’t been included where were kind of
like wait we want to be included too so we’re working together to see if there’s
a way that we can make that happen we’re in negotiations we had our first
negotiations meeting this is successor negotiations so we’re going to be in bargaining for a long time but
practically every topic on the contract i expect that we’ll all be able to work
together really well and I’m sure you know this by now but Jeanne Durand in
really loves candy and chocolate and so he brought in chocolate peanut covered
chocolate Eminem’s which was that’s my favorite I don’t know how we knew that but so I’m
sure as the months go on probably get a little bit larger pic look there
hopefully not just have to keep doing my walking anyway that’s all i have to
report on behalf of chai so thank you thank you okay too . on asp president’s report hello good evening so this past week we had joined a club
day was a major success both at LACC and pc i personally witnessed a lot more
student involvement than usual as the three years that I’ve been here I
haven’t seen that much student traffic we were happy to see trustee malu trust
the auto president oakley and vice president Peter for coming out to
support we passed our water bottles sunglasses as well as sure to promote
our new and prevent website called nordic sink formerly known as or think
we also tried something new with our social media by having a jail filter on
the ESPYs snapchat account and we plan to keep using it to promote other ASB
events though the Geo filters kinda like a thing based off location I it’s like a little filters as long
beach city college join the club day but yeah it’s really cool you’re talking to the wrong group go see
a lot i felt the need to explain a little bit so we’ve pc what we have will
be observing constitution day on sep tember 15 they’re gonna be passing out
pocket constitutions as well as free ice cream so we’d appreciate it if you
stopped by special election for treasurer will be held this week I’ll be
students can vote online on the fourteenth and fifteen applications for
a new representative representative of athletics are also being accepted this
week and we hope to interview and make an appointment with the next two cabinet
meetings charging stations for students are being installed at PCC thanks to
barnes and noble grant from the last semester and I believe they’re starting
this week on that the cabinet approved the SB budget for 2016 2017 school year
primary item changes within the budget is the application of a line item for
spirit rallies at viking athletic events and one year increase for athletics as
well as signage improvement for the LHC’s college center which has already
increased in traffic in the Student Life area mostly providing signs that make
the e building look attractive so students can come in and get more
involved and that’s in my report okay thank you is your constitution
meeting the US Constitution or the HP Constitution it’s okay and it’s tricky i
think the students should be congratulated because they ate 575 hot
dogs in and our that was a record ok 2.1 public comments either no zero ok
there are no what card for public comments so we will continue on 3.1
Student Success a long beach college promise innovation award and dr.
Peterson and dr. long will give us the overview please yes board president Baxter as an
introduction this is again the series of topics that were bringing to the board
on student success it’s been well over a year since we last talked about the
college promise and the progress that we’re making as it relates to the 5
million dollars of investment we got through the award for innovation higher
education dr. long and dr. Peterson have been working with the team from long
beach unified and cal state long beach and ask them to come here today and talk
about their progress they’ve made tremendous progress and some some
wonderful developments that will continue to smooth the pathway for
students coming from k all the way through long beach state
so with that alternate over to the dynamic duo thank you president oakley
so we’re going to give a little bit of an overview of what the problem is and
then talk a little bit about the promise and then specifically about the award
and what we did for the last year since we received the innovation award so the
problem is nationwide but as far as California goes we are on track to have
a shortfall of bachelors attaining college graduates the forecast is that
we will be 1.1 million workers short by the year twenty thirty
