AND I WILL LEAD.>>PLEDGE ALLEGIANCE TO THE FLAG OF THE UNITED
STATES OF AMERICA AND TO THE REPUBLIC FOR WHICH IT STANDS, ONE NATION, UNDER GOD, INDIVISIBLE
WITH LIBERTY AND JUSTICE FOR ALL.>>ITEM THREE ON THE AGENDA IS THE ORGANIZATIONAL
MEETING AND THIS WILL INVOLVE SEVERAL ITEMS . THEY MAY INCLUDE — WE DID NOT JUST HAVE
AN ELECTION FOR THE OFFICE OF — WE DID TRUSTEES. AN APPOINTMENT REPRESENTATIVE, THIS IS OPTIONAL
TO THE BOARD OF LOS ANGELES COUNTY. FINALLY, TO AUTHORIZE SIGNATURES BY BOARD OFFICERS
FOR VARIOUS TYPES OF DOCUMENTS. THE BOARD LAST YEAR COMPLIED WITH THE CALIFORNIA VOTER
PARTICIPATION RIGHT ASKED — RIGHTS ACT. WE TALKED WITH OUTSIDE COUNSEL AND HE HAS GIVEN
US SOME GUIDANCE ON WHAT OUR OPTIONS ARE AT THIS POINT IN TIME FOR ORGANIZATIONAL MEETINGS.
WE NEED TO POINT OUT THAT IRRESPECTIVE OF WHAT WE DECIDE TO DO TONIGHT, THERE WILL BE
MEETING IN JULY OF NEXT YEAR FOLLOWING THE JUNE 2018 COLLECTION OR SEAT OF THIS BOARD.
TONIGHT, THE GUIDANCE THAT WE HAVE BEEN GIVEN IS WE SHOULD CONSIDER TWO QUESTIONS AND THE
FIRST IS WHETHER OR NOT THE BOARD SHOULD EXTEND THE TERM OF OFFICE OF THE BOARD OFFICERS THAT
WERE ELECTED A YEAR AGO, AT WHICH TIME EVERYONE ASSUMED IT WAS AT THAT TIME A 12 MONTH TERM.
THE BOARD HAS THE OPTION TO EXTEND THOSE UNTIL THE JULY ORGANIZATIONAL MEETINGS NEXT YEAR.
IF THE BOARD DECIDES TO EXTEND, THEN IT WOULD BE APPROPRIATE TO HAVE AN ELECTION FOR EACH
ONE OF THOSE. AT THIS TIME, I WILL ENTERTAIN A MOTION AS TO WHETHER OR NOT THE BOARD SHOULD
ELECT TO EXTEND OR NOT EXTEND THE TERM OF OFFICE OF THE THREE BOARD OFFICERS. THIS COULD
BE A MOTION IN EITHER DIRECTION.>>I MOVE TO CONVENE THE FLOOR — CONVENE
THE REORGANIZATION AT THIS TIME AND WE CAN RECONSIDER ORGANIZATION IN JUNE. WE WILL HAVE
TO RECONSIDER REORGANIZATION. I WOULD LIKE TO REORGANIZE OUR NEW POSITION.>>I WOULD SECOND THAT MOTION, BUT WOULD ALSO
SAY WE DON’T HAVE AN OPTION.>>WE WILL HAVE A REORGANIZATION MEETING IN
JULY.>>WHAT I INTENDED TO SAY IS WE CAN DECIDE
TO EXTEND AND IF WE COULD EXTEND AT THAT TIME.>>I SECOND THAT MOTION.>>THAT IS A MOTION TO HAVE AN ELECTION OF
OFFICERS AT THIS TIME. IS THAT CORRECT?>>YES.>>IS THERE ANY DISCUSSION? ALL IN FAVOR?
PASSES 7-0 WITH THE STUDENT TRUSTEE VOTING IN FAVOR. AT THIS POINT, IT WOULD BE APPROPRIATE
TO THANK THE ECONOMIES — NOMINEE.>>ANY DISCUSSION? : FAVORITE? — ALL IN FAVOR?
PASSES 7-0 WITH THE STUDENT TRUSTEE VOTING IN FAVOR. ARE THERE ANY NOMINEES FOR VICE
PRESIDENT. IS THERE A SECOND? ANY DISCUSSION? ALL IN FAVOR? PASSES 7-0 WITH THE STUDENT
TRUSTEE VOTING IN FAVOR. NOMINATIONS FOR CLERK BOARD OF TRUSTEES QUESTION MARK — BOARD OF
TRUSTEES? ANY DISCUSSION? ALL IN FAVOR? PASSES 7-0 WITH THE STUDENT TRUSTEE VOTING IN FAVOR
— I
THINK THE BYLAWS SPECIFY THAT WE HAVE TO VOTE ON IT.>>I NOMINATE THE PRESIDENT OF THE BOARD.>>SECONDED. ANY DISCUSSION? PASSES 7-0 WITH
THE STUDENT TRUSTEE VOTING IN FAVOR. AND THE ASSISTANT SECRETARY TO THE BOARD? WE WILL
TAKE CARE OF THAT PRESENCE AT A LATER TIME. THANK YOU. THIS CONCLUDES THE ELECTION OF
THE BOARD OFFICERS WHICH WILL EXTEND TO THE NEXT MEETING IN JULY AT WHICH TIME THE BOARD WILL HAVE ANOTHER ORGANIZATIONAL
MEETING.>>THANK YOU. OK, THANK YOU TRUSTEES. IT IS
NICE TO HAVE YOUR CONFIDENCE AND I HOPE TO DO THIS JOB THIS YEAR. AN IMPORTANT JOB IS
TO HAVE A NEW PRESIDENT. I DO — THE FOUNDATION IS DOING A GOOD JOB AND CERTAINLY TO KEEP
OUR PROMISE TO OUR STUDENTS WHICH IS NUMBER ONE AND ALSO PLAN TO DO WORTH THIS YEAR RAISING
MONEY FOR STUDY ABROAD. . WE ARE PLANNING A FILM FESTIVAL AND SO WE ENCOURAGE EVERYONE
TO COME OUT AND LET YOU KNOW MORE. WE WILL PROCEED WITH THE REGULAR BUSINESS MEETING
NOW. LIKE A MOTION TO APPROVE THE AGENDA.>>BEFORE WE ADJOURNED THE ORGANIZATIONAL
MEETING, I THINK WE HAVE ITEM SIX, SETTING DATES FOR NEXT YEAR’S MEETINGS.>>IS THERE ANY QUESTIONS YOU HAVE?>>I NOTICED IN JANUARY WILL HAVE ONE MEETING.
AND THEN AFTER THAT WE GET BACK INTO THE REGULAR PATTERN OF THE FIRST AND THIRD WEDNESDAY OF
THE MONTH.>>IF I COULD RAISE A POINT HERE .>>I WANTED TO RECOMMEND WITH THE NEW OFFICES
THAT YOU REVIEWED THE CALENDAR AND SAID AT LEAST — SAID AT LEAST TWO MEETINGS WHERE
WE WILL HAVE A NEW SUPERINTENDENT COMING IN WHICH I THINK WE MISSED THIS LAST YEAR AND
THEN WE ARE THINKING ABOUT MAYBE CONVENING THE BOARD AGAIN TO SUPPORT THE NEW SUPERINTENDENT
COMING IN. I THINK IT IS HELPFUL FOR THE REST OF THE BOARD MEMBERS.>>I WANTED TO RAISE THE ISSUE. IN. A FORMER
CHANCELLOR AND SOMEONE WHO HAS BEEN AROUND A GREAT DEAL . ONE OF HIS POINT AND RECOMMENDATIONS
THAT HE MADE TO US WAS TO TAKE ANOTHER LOOK AT OUR MEETINGS SCHEDULED AND FELT WE WERE
REALLY OUTLIERS IN TERMS OF MEETINGS SCHEDULED THAT WE WERE MEETING GENERALLY TWICE A MONTH
AND THIS — THERE ARE SEVERAL REASONS FOR THIS SUGGESTION. ONE, IT PLACES QUITE BURDEN
ON THE ADMINISTRATION TO PREPARE FOR THE MEETINGS AND SOMETIMES A LOT OTHER BUSINESS IS DONE.
THE OTHER QUESTION WOULD BE WHEN HE RAISE THE ISSUE OF SPECIAL MEETINGS, WE DO LIKE
TO HAVE THE MEETINGS AND LIKE THEM TO BE DIRECTED AT PARTICULAR TOPICS THAT COME UP SO GENERALLY
THE WAY THIS IS HANDLED AROUND THE COMMUNITY, SYSTEM IS THEY HAVE REGULAR BUSINESS MEETINGS
AND THEY HAVE SPECIAL MEETINGS MORE FREQUENTLY MEN WE DO. — MUCH MORE FREQUENTLY THAN WE
DO. I KNOW IT HAS COME UP BEFORE. I WANT TO RAISE IT AGAIN AND MAKE A PROPOSAL THAT WE
HAVE A MONTHLY MEETING IN JANUARY AND AGAIN IN FEBRUARY AND MARCH AND APRIL WE HAVE TO
BUSINESS MEETINGS SCHEDULED TO ONE OF THEM HAPPENS IN THE MEETING IN SAN ANTONIO ON THE
SAME DAY AND THEN THE APRIL 18 MEETING IS DURING THE SPRING BREAK, SO WHAT I WOULD TO
JUST WOULD BE TO TRY AS A PILOT TO CANCEL THE MARCH 21 MEETING AND THE APRIL 18 MEETING
AND SEE HOW WE PROCEED AND FEEL ABOUT THAT IN TERMS OF SCHEDULING. I DON’T THINK THAT
WOULD CAUSE GREAT DISRUPTION. I WOULD LIKE TO MAKE THAT MOTION THAT WE STRIKE THE 21ST
OF MARCH AND THE 18TH OF APRIL AND THEN RECONSIDER AFTER THAT.>>I WILL SECOND TRUSTEE HILLS RECOMMENDATION.
I ALSO HEARD THE SAME RECOMMENDATION FROM THE FORMER CHANCELLOR AND I THINK IT IS ALSO
ONE THAT PERHAPS WE ARE HAVING TOO MANY MEETINGS. MY ONLY CONCERN IS THAT WHEN WE WENT DOWN
TO ONE MEETING, WE — THE ONE MEETING SEEN TO TAKE HOURS AND WE WERE NOT OUT OF HERE
UNTIL 11:00 OR 12:00.>>THAT WAS MY CONCERN IN WHY I SUGGESTED
WE DO THIS ON A TRIAL BASIS.>>I WOULD LIKE TO RECOMMEND THAT WE AND THEN
THE MOTION TO SAY WE DIRECT THE OFFICERS TO COME BACK TO THE BOARD LOOKING AT ONE MEETING
PER MONTH AND THEN BRING THAT BACK FOR FINAL APPROVAL.>>SUPPORTIVE OF THAT.>>IF TRUSTEE HILL ACCEPTS THAT, THAN I WOULD
MAKE A RECOMMENDATION.>>I’M TRYING TO MATCH CALENDERS TOGETHER,
BUT THERE IS GOING TO BE A TIME WHETHER THE A LOT OF — WERE THOUGH — SO WHEN YOU MEET,
YOU MIGHT LOOK OVER THAT CALENDAR AND FIGURE OUT HOW THAT LOOPS IN IF THERE IS AN EMERGENCY
ACTION CAN BE TAKEN.>>I WANTED TO MENTION THE SAME THING THAT
TRUSTEE MARTIN MENTIONED. WHEN WE HEAR FROM OUR CONSULTANTS LATER ON, WE MIGHT WANT TO
KEEP IN MIND WE WILL HAVE TO HAVE ANOTHER MEETING.>>THANK YOU. SO, I’M NOT REALLY APPALLED
AT THE FACT THAT WE COULD GO TO MEETING ONCE A MONTH, BUT I THINK WE NEED TO REMEMBER BOARD
POLICY SAYS THAT WE NEED TWICE A MONTH, SO NOT SURE IT WILL BE IN OUR INTEREST TONIGHT
TO PASS SOMETHING BEFORE WE AMEND OUR POLICY.>>SO THE MOTION ON THE FLOOR, IT ISN’T STATED
THAT WAY ALREADY IN RESPONSE TO TRUSTEE BROWN’S CONCERN WOULD BE THAT WE ADVISE THE EXECUTIVE
COMMITTEE TO DO THAT AND IF YOU LOOK AT THE SCHEDULE, WE MIGHT LOOK AT REVISING OUR POLICY
AS NECESSARY IN ORDER TO KEEP OUR MEETING SCHEDULES.>>DO YOU AGREE?>>I AGREE. I’M GLAD YOU BROUGHT THAT UP.
I WANTED TO TALK TO THE EXECUTIVE COMMITTEE. I THOUGHT ABOUT THIS FOR A LONG TIME AND I
TALKED TO TRUSTEES AT OUR NEARBY COMMUNITY COLLEGES. I’VE ALWAYS THOUGHT THE BUDGET IS
SO SO WE CAN TALK ABOUT THAT ALSO. ANY FURTHER COMMENTS OR QUESTIONS? PLEASE VOTE AT THIS
TIME. TRUSTEE: WHAT ARE WE VOTING FOR?>>TO CANCEL THE MARCH AND APRIL MEETING AND
THEN REVISIT THE POLICY OF TWICE MONTHLY MEETINGS.>>AND WITH ADDITIONAL AMENDMENT THAT THIS
IS A RECOMMENDATION TO THE BOARD FROM THE EXECUTIVE COMMITTEE, AND THE EXECUTIVE COMMITTEE
WILL SET A CALENDAR WITH THOSE IN MIND, AND IF NECESSARY, WE WILL ADJUST. WE WILL VOTE
THE MOTION AS AMENDED.>>ANY OTHER QUESTIONS OR COMMENTS? PLEASE
VOTE. THANK YOU VERY MUCH. AT THIS TIME, WE HAVE — A DIM LIGHT. STUDENT TRUSTEE. YOU
VOTED ON THAT? STUDENT TRUSTEE: YES.>>THIS IS A TIME FOR INTRODUCTIONS AND RECOGNITIONS.
OUR VOTE IS ONE ABSTENTION AND SIX YESES AND THEN THE TRUST VOTE VERY OK, THIS IS TIME
FOR INTRODUCTION AND RECOGNITION.>>WILL THE PRESIDENT, WILL YOU GIVE THE OATH
OF OFFICE?>>PLEASE RAISE YOUR RIGHT HAND. I SOLEMNLY
SWEAR THAT I WILL SUPPORT AND DEFEND THE CONSTITUTION OF THE UNITED STATES AND THE CONSTITUTION
OF THE STATE OF CALIFORNIA AGAINST ALL ENEMIES FOREIGN AND DOMESTIC , THAT I WILL BEAR TRUE
FAITH AND ALLEGIANCE TO THE CONSTITUTION OF THE UNITED STATES AND THE CONSTITUTION OF
THE STATE OF CALIFORNIA, THAT I TAKE THIS OBLIGATION FREELY, WITHOUT ANY MENTAL RESERVATION
OR PURPOSE OF EVASION AND THAT I WILL AND FAITHFULLY DISCHARGE THE DUTIES UPON WHICH
I’M ABOUT TO ENTER. CONGRATULATIONS. [APPLAUSE] [APPLAUSE]>>I WOULD LIKE TO THANK DR. VURDIEN AND OTHERS
FOR THE CONFIDENCE, MOVING UP TO THE RANK OF SERGEANT AND JUST YOUR BRIEFLY SAY I WOULD
LIKE TO THANK MY WIFE AND FAMILY SITTING OVER THERE, THE REST OF THE PCC POLICE DEPARTMENT,
THE FAMILY BEHIND, MR. ABERNATHY. HOPEFULLY, GOD WILLING, I WILL BE ABLE TO PROVIDE ANOTHER
20 YEARS OF SERVICE HERE TO SUPPORT AND FURTHER THE PCC COMMUNITY. THANK YOU. [APPLAUSE]>>THAT IS A WONDERFUL FIRST DUTY TO DO ALSO.
I APPRECIATE THAT. THIS IS THE TIME FOR COMMENTS ON NON-AGENDA ITEMS.>>SO I WOULD LIKE TO INVITE MS. GLORIA HUGHES
TO THE LECTERN. FOR HER PUBLIC COMMENT. IS MS. HUGHES NOT HERE? SO THEN I WILL MOVE ON
TO MS. STELLA. YOU WILL HAVE THREE MINUTES, AND OUR FORMER CLERK, OUR RETIRED CLERK, HAS
A THREE-MINUTE TIMER, AND WE WILL LET YOU KNOW WHEN YOU HAVE A MINUTE OR SO TO GO. THANK
YOU.>>GOOD EVENING. MY NAME IS STELLA MURGA,
AND I AM WITH THE USE OF ALLIANCE, A PASADENA-BASED NONPROFIT ORGANIZATION ESTABLISHED IN 2001.
OUR FOCUS IS COMPARED — PREPARING YOUTH FOR COLLEGE AND CAREERS, AND WE DO THAT WITH PCC
, WITH CONFERENCES EACH YEAR, INCLUDING A LATINO CONFERENCE. I AM ALSO A MEMBER OF A
LATINO ADVISORY COMMITTEE, ON WHICH I HAVE SERVED FOR SEVERAL YEARS NOW. I WAS HERE IN
JUNE TO SHARE WITH YOU HOW WE ACHIEVE STUDENT SUCCESS I HAVING SUCCESSFUL PROFESSIONALS
WHO LOOK LIKE OUR STUDENTS AND HAVE SIMILAR CULTURAL AND LIFE EXPERIENCES SERVE AS WORKSHOP
PRESENTERS TO SHARE THEIR COLLEGE AND CAREER JOURNEYS WITH THEM. THESE PRESENTERS ARE ABLE
TO RELATE TO THE STUDENTS AND ENCOURAGE THEM TO ADVANCE ACADEMICALLY AND PROFESSIONALLY.
I ASKED YOU THAT HOW YOU PLANNED TO INCREASE THE NUMBER OF LATINO FACULTY HERE AT PCC.
AFTER SO MANY YEARS OF WORKING TO RECRUIT STUDENTS FOR PCC, I WAS HAPPY TO LEARN THAT
THE NUMBER OF LATINO STUDENTS INCREASED 51% OF THE OVERALL STUDENT POPULATION. OVER 250,000
STUDENTS. PCC IS, THEREFORE, DESIGNATED AS A HISPANIC-SERVING INSTITUTION OR HSI, QUALIFY
FOR FEDERAL FUNDING ACCORDING TO THE HIGHER EDUCATION ACT TO SERVE A HIGH NUMBER OF NEEDY
STUDENTS. TITLE V OF THE ACT INTRODUCED IN 1998 IS ANOTHER FUNDING STREAM, SPECIFICALLY
FOR HSI’S TO ASSIST INSTITUTIONS IN THEIR HIGHER EDUCATION PROVISIONS. IF THE BOARD
AWARE OF THAT, OF THESE FUNDING STREAMS, BECAUSE OF PCC’S HSI STATUS? IT CAN BE USED FOR MANY
ACADEMIC PURPOSES, SERVING ALL ETHNICITIES AT THE INSTITUTION, INCLUDING FACULTY DEVELOPMENT,
FUNDS AND ADMINISTRATIVE MANAGEMENT, DEVELOPMENT AND IMPROVEMENT OF ACADEMIC PROGRAMS, ENDOWMENT
FUNDS, SCIENTIFIC OR LABORATORY EQUIPPED FOR TEACHING, RENOVATION OF INSTRUCTIONAL FACILITIES,
JOINT USE FACILITIES, ACADEMIC TUTORING, TOWNSEND PROGRAMS, AND STUDENT SUPPORT SERVICES, SO,
AGAIN, I ASK, WHAT ARE YOU DOING TO INCREASE THE NUMBER OF LATINO FACULTY AND FACULTY OF
COLOR AT PCC TO ATTRACT MORE STUDENTS FROM OUR LOCAL COMMUNITY AND ASSURE THAT OUR STUDENTS
THRIVE AND GRADUATE? THE PRESIDENT OF THE COMMITTEE STANDS IN SOLIDARITY WITH THE AFRICAN-AMERICAN
COMMUNITY IN EXPRESSING CONCERNS RELATED TO HIRING PRACTICES THAT REFLECT CULTURAL COMPETENCE
AND CONCERN FOR THE STUDENTS ENROLLED AT PCC , WHERE, AS I HAVE SAID, THE MAJORITY POPULATION
ARE PEOPLE OF COLOR. THE SEARCH ON FOR THE NEW SUPERINTENDENT PRESIDENT, THE BOARD MUST
CHANGE PCC’S CURRENT POLICY. BB -2431 AND ANOTHER THAT REFERS TO THE PRESIDENT. NOT
STANDARD POLICIES OR PRACTICES AT ANY OTHER COLLEGE. THE CURRENT POLICIES DO NOT ALLOW
FOR ADEQUATE PARTICIPATION BY PCC STAKEHOLDERS AND LIMITS THIS DECISION, THIS MAJOR DECISION,
TO ONLY SEVEN BOARD MEMBERS WHO COMPOSE THE COMMITTEE, WHICH GOES AGAINST THE SPIRIT OF
THE EQUAL OPPORTUNITY PLAN PREVIOUSLY ADOPTED BY THE BOARD. THE LATINO ADVISORY COMMITTEE
REQUESTS THAT THIS POLICY BE CHANGED IMMEDIATELY AS AN ACT OF GOOD FAITH TO BETTER SERVE THE
COLLEGE COMMUNITY. I HAVE SERVED ON THE COMMITTEE FOR THE CURRENT –>>WE ARE OVER THE TIME LIMIT. IF YOU COULD
JUST WRAP UP YOUR COMMENTS? THANK YOU VERY MUCH. OVER THE TIME LIMIT. IF YOU COULD JUST
WRAP UP YOUR COMMENTS? THANK YOU VERY MUCH.>>OK. THE MEMBERS OF THE BOARD HAVE NOT GONE
THROUGH THE CULTURAL COMPETENCE TRAINING WHICH IS REQUIRED OF ALL OTHER PCC EMPLOYEES, SO
WE URGE YOU TO CHANGE THOSE POLICIES AND TO BETTER REFLECT — HAVE PCC BETTER REFLECT
THE COMMUNITY THAT YOU WERE ELECTED TO SERVE. THANK YOU VERY MUCH.>>THANK YOU.>>WE ARE TO MOVE ON TO THE CONSENT ITEMS,
AND WITH THE STUDENTS, THERE ARE TWO ITEMS.>>I BELIEVE WE NEED TO APPROVE THE MINUTES.
I’VE MOVE APPROVAL OF THE MINUTES.>>SECOND.>>IS THERE A DISCUSSION? ALL IN FAVOR, PLEASE
VOTE. ARE YOU ABSTAINING? THE STUDENT TRUSTEE — YOU
CAN STILL VOTE. WE HAVE SIX VOTING YES, THE STUDENT TRUSTEE, AND ONE ABSTENTION. TO THE
CONSENT ITEMS, WE WILL START WITH THE STUDENTS. WE HAVE TWO CONSENT ITEMS TODAY. I WILL ACCEPT
A MOTION.>>SO MOVED.>>A MOTION FROM MR. MARTIN AND A SECOND.
IS THERE DISCUSSION? PLEASE VOTE. THE SECOND ITEMS DEAL WITH INSTRUCTION. WE HAVE
ONE ITEM THERE.>>MOVED TO APPROVE.>>WE HAVE A MOTION AND A SECOND. PLEASE VOTE.
I WILL — IN THE AFFIRMATIVE, ALL, INCLUDING THE STUDENT TRUSTEE. THE NEXT ITEM TO DEAL
WITH, BUSINESS, WE WILL ENTERTAIN A MOTION.>>MOVE APPROVAL.>>SECOND.>>WE HAVE A MOTION AND A SECOND FROM MS.
WAH. PLEASE VOTE. UNANIMOUS, INCLUDING THE STUDENT TRUSTEE. THE NEXT ITEMS DEAL WITH
PERSONNEL. I WILL ENTERTAIN A MOTION UNLESS YOU WOULD LIKE TO –>>MOVED TO APPROVE.>>SECOND.>>MR. PRESIDENT, WE HAVE A MINOR CHANGE IN
NUMBER THREE. THERE WAS A SLIGHT CHANGE. WE REMOVED A NAME. IT HAS BEEN REMOVED FROM THAT.>>ITEM NUMBER AT TWO A NAME HAS BEEN REMOVED.>>THE CORRECT LIST IS ON WHAT IS BEING APPROVED
RIGHT NOW.>>WITH THAT CORRECTION, WE HAVE A MOTION
BY MS. WAH AND A SECOND BY MR. OSTERLING. PLEASE VOTE. ALL VOTES ARE IN THE AFFIRMATIVE.
AND NOW WE TURN TO ACTION ITEMS , AND THE FIRST IS THE RECEIPT OF THE FISCAL YEAR 2016-2017
AUDIT.>>DR. STORTI, WILL YOU PLEASE INTRODUCE THIS?>>TONIGHT, TO PRESENT THE AUDIT RESULTS IS
A PARTNER WITH THE FIRM.>>THANK YOU VERY MUCH. OK, I AM JUST GOING
TO SHARE A FEW COMMENTS AND HIGHLIGHTS RELATED TO THE AUDIT REPORT. WE DID MEET WITH THE
FINANCE COMMITTEE, SO WE DID HAVE THE OPPORTUNITY TO GO THROUGH THE REPORTS IN QUITE A BIT OF
DETAIL WITH THE FINANCE COMMITTEE. OF COURSE, MANAGEMENT WAS THERE, AS WELL, AND I BELIEVE
WE WERE ABLE TO ANSWER ALL OF THE QUESTIONS THAT THE FINANCE COMMITTEE HAD FOR US. SO
TWO ITEMS I WOULD LIKE TO MENTION THAT I BELIEVE YOU HAVE IN YOUR PACKET, ONE IS LETTERS, A
REQUIRED COMMUNICATION LETTER TO YOU AS THE BOARD OF THE COLLEGE, AND SO IT IS OUR REQUIREMENT
TO REPORT THE RESULTS OF THE AUDIT FROM A QUALITATIVE STANDPOINT, SO IT GOES THROUGH
A NUMBER OF AREAS THAT WE NEED TO REPORT BACK TO YOU, IF WE HAD ANY DIFFICULTIES, IF WE
HAD ANY DISAGREEMENTS WITH REGARD TO IMPLEMENTATION OR THE APPLICATION OF THE ACCOUNTING POLICY,
IF WE HAD ANY ADJUSTMENTS TO THE FINANCIAL STATEMENT, AND SO IT ALL OF THESE AREAS, THIS
LETTER IS VERY CLEAN, AS NONE OF THOSE SITUATIONS AROSE AS WE WENT THROUGH THE AUDIT PROCESS.
FROM TIME TO TIME, WE WILL ALSO HAVE OBSERVATIONS THAT WE MAY INCLUDE IN THIS LETTER. THERE
ARE ITEMS THAT WE JUST WANT TO MAKE SURE YOU ARE AWARE THAT WE HAD CONVERSATIONS WITH MANAGEMENT
ON CERTAIN ITEMS , AND THIS YEAR, THERE ARE NO OBSERVATIONS THAT ARE INCLUDED IN THIS
LETTER EITHER, SO IT IS A VERY CLEAN LETTER. IN REGARD TO THE AUDIT REPORT ITSELF, JUST
TO MENTION SOME OF THE VERY KEY PAGES, I FEEL A LITTLE BIT BAD. IT IS A VERY LARGE DOCUMENT.
THERE IS A LOT OF HOURS THAT THE WIN FROM THE MANAGER POINT OF VIEW IN TERMS OF PREPARING
THEIR TRIAL BALANCES AND PROVIDING ALL OF THAT FOR US FOR AUDIT PURPOSES, AND TO REALLY
ONLY TALK ABOUT THREE OR AFTER YOUR PAGES IS ALMOST A LITTLE BIT OF AN INJUSTICE, BUT
I WILL REVIEW THE PAGES THAT WILL BE MOST PERTINENT TO YOUR NEEDS. SO WITH THAT, ONE
OF THE PAGES IS THE OPINION, AND THE OPINION — THERE WAS NOT A PAGE NUMBER ON IT, BUT
IT IS A NEWLY FOLLOWING THE TABLE OF CONTENTS, SO THE OPINION WE HAVE RENDERED — BUT IT
IS IMMEDIATELY FOLLOWING THE TABLE OF CONTENTS, SO THE OPINION WE HAVE RENDERED IS THE HIGHEST
COGNITIVE OPINION WE CAN RENDER, WHICH MEANS THE STATEMENTS THAT THEY HAVE PREPARED ARE
BOTH FAIRLY STATED AND FOLLOWING ALL OF THE APPROPRIATE ACCOUNTING PRINCIPLES. THE OTHER
ITEM I WOULD TURN YOUR ATTENTION TO IS TOWARD THE BACK OF THE REPORT, BEGINNING ON PAGE
62. THERE IS A SERIES OF THREE LETTERS DEALING WITH INTERNAL CONTROLS AND COMPLIANCE, BOTH
RELATED TO THE FINANCIAL STATEMENTS, THE FEDERAL PROGRAMS, AND ALSO THE STATE PROGRAMS. AND
ALL OF THESE AREAS, WE DO NOT HAVE ANY FINDINGS IN THE REPORT, SO EACH OF THESE LETTERS ARE,
AGAIN, CLEAN LETTERS. THEY DO NOT REFER TO ANY INSTANCES OF NONCOMPLIANCE. SO THE OTHER
PAGE I WOULD LIKE TO BRING YOUR ATTENTION TO IS ON PAGE 70, AND IT IS A NICE SUMMARY
OF THE ENTIRE DOCUMENT. AGAIN, IT IDENTIFIES THE TYPE OF OPINION THAT WE RENDERED. IT ALSO
LETS YOU KNOW IF WE HAD ANY FINDINGS OR ANY ISSUES. THERE WOULD BE YES IS MARKED, BUT
ON PAGE 70, EVERYTHING THERE IS INDICATED AS A NO, WHICH MEANS, AGAIN, WE DID NOT HAVE
ANY SITUATIONS THAT CAME UP THAT WE NEEDED TO HAVE A FINDING ON, AND THEN FINALLY AT
THE VERY BOTTOM OF THE PAGE, IT IDENTIFIES THE DISTRICT AS A LOW RISK AUDITEE, WHICH
IS A HUGE COMPLIMENT FOR MANAGEMENT TO HAVE THAT, AND NOT ALL DISTRICTS IN THE CITY OF
CALIFORNIA ARE ABLE TO ACHIEVE THE STATUS OF BEING A LOW RISK AUDITEE, SO I AM VERY
HAPPY TO ANSWER ANY QUESTIONS YOU MIGHT HAVE IN REGARD TO THE AUDIT IF YOU HAVE HAD A CHANCE
TO READ THROUGH IT AND HAVE SOME SPECIFIC QUESTIONS, OR IF YOU WOULD LIKE ME TO GO THROUGH
IT IN MORE DETAIL, I AM HAPPY TO DO THAT, AS WELL.>>ANY TRUSTEES?>>I JUST HAVE A FEW COMMENTS. THE BUDGET
AND AUDIT COMMITTEE CONSISTS OF MYSELF, TRUSTEE MARTIN, AND TRUSTEE OSTERLING, AND I THINK
THIS IS THE SECOND OR THIRD ONE OF THESE THAT THE THREE OF US HAVE SAT THROUGH, AND THIS
IS A CLEAN AUDIT. THE SECOND YEAR IN A ROW WE HAVE GOTTEN A CLEAN AUDIT, SO CONGRATULATIONS.
EVERYBODY ELSE WHO HELPED TO PUT THIS ALL TOGETHER. IT WAS VERY GRATIFYING. WE APPRECIATE
YOUR WORK ON THAT. ALSO, I JUST WANT TO NOTE THAT THERE ARE ONGOING CHANGES AND REVISIONS
TO THE ACCOUNTING STANDARDS THAT APPLY TO THE GOVERNMENT AGENCIES, AND WE ARE ALMOST
TO THE POINT WHERE ALL OF THOSE BIG UNFUNDED LIABILITIES ARE SHOWING UP EXPLICITLY NEXT
YEAR. I THINK THE FINAL STROKE TO ACCOUNT FOR THOSE VERY LARGE NUMBERS IS THE INCLUSION
EXPLICITLY OF THE UNFUNDED LIABILITY FOR THE POSTEMPLOYMENT BENEFITS. THOSE, ALONG WITH
THE UNFUNDED LIABILITIES FOR THE VARIOUS PENSION PLAN OBLIGATIONS, ARE SOME PRETTY BIG NUMBERS.
WE ARE, AS A COLLEGE, CREATING RESERVES IN ORDER TO BE ABLE TO DEAL WITH THESE INCREASING
OBLIGATIONS THAT ARE PROJECTED TO BE A BURDEN IN THE YEARS TO COME. A SOLUTION — WE HAVE
GOT A GOOD FINANCIAL STATEMENT HERE. IT IS ACCURATE, INCLUDING NOW ALMOST EVERYTHING,
AND NEXT YEAR, WE WILL EXPLICITLY HAVE ALL OF THESE ONGOING OBLIGATIONS. I ALSO WANT
TO MENTION ONE THING. WE DO HAVE AN INTERNAL AUDITOR POSITION, AND WE RECEIVED AT THAT
MEETING AS A KIND OF ADJUNCT TO THE PRESENTATION FROM OUR AUDITORS A RUN DOWN OF WHAT OUR AUDITORS
ARE DOING IN TERM OF INTERNAL CONTROLS FOR THE COLLEGE, AND IT IS A VERY WISE — IT IS
VERY WISE FOR US TO HAVE A POSITION WITH THAT, AND I THINK WE ARE OFF TO A GOOD START.>>THANK YOU. ANY COMMENTS OR QUESTIONS?>>AGAIN, AS A COMMITTEE MEMBER, THERE ARE
A COUPLE OF THINGS I WOULD LIKE TO POINT OUT. ON PAGE 50, YOU WILL SEE A LIST OF ALL OF
THE FEDERAL AWARDS WE HAVE RECEIVED, AND THE FIRST ONE IS A $33,000 PELL GRANT FROM THE
DEPARTMENT OF EDUCATION AND TO DIRECT MONEY UP $36 MILLION OF FINANCIAL AID IN ONE FORM
OR ANOTHER, AND THAT IS A TREMENDOUS AMOUNT OF MONEY, A TREMENDOUS AMOUNT OF GOOD FOR
A LOT OF STUDENTS, A BIG PART OF OUR BUDGET. IT HAS BEEN AN AREA A DECADE OR SO AGO WE
HAD SOME REAL INTERNAL ISSUES WITH. A LOT OF MONEY AND A LOT OF REGULATION. I AM VERY
PLEASED WITH THE AMOUNT OF FUNDS WE ARE ABLE TO AWARD TO OUR STUDENTS, AND I AM PLEASED
WITH THE WAY THE COLLEGE IS ADMINISTERING THOSE FUNDS AND TAKING CARE OF BUSINESS, SO
THAT WAS A HIGHLIGHT TO ME, AND I APPRECIATE IT. PAGE 55 IS A LIST OF ALL OF THE FUND BALANCES.
WE FOCUSED A LOT OF TIME ON OUR OPERATIONS, BUT WE DO HAVE SOME OTHER FUNDS. SEEING THOSE,
AND AS MS. GRAVES POINTED OUT, PAGE 70 IS THE FEDERAL OPINION SUMMARY, AND WE PRETTY
MUCH NAILED IT ON EVERY SINGLE POINT. THE BOARD DID MEET IN A CLOSED EXECUTIVE SESSION
WITH THE AUDITORS WITHOUT ANY OF THE PCC STAFF PRESENT, THE BOARD SUBCOMMITTEE, AND GOT RAVE
REVIEWS FROM THE AUDITORS FOR THE GOOD WORK OF EVERYONE THEY WORKED WITH AT THE COLLEGE
AND THE ORDER OF WHICH THINGS ARE, AND THESE ARE REALLY HELPFUL SUGGESTIONS. NO SOUR GRAPES.
THEY HAD SOME SUGGESTIONS ON HOW WE CAN BEST UTILIZE THE SERVICES OF OUR INTERNAL AUDITOR,
AND I APPRECIATE YOU DOING THAT, AND WE HAVE ALREADY SHARED SOME OF THOSE WITH THE SUPERINTENDENT
AND DIFFERENT WAYS THAT DIFFERENT HOTLINES AND THINGS WILL BE AVAILABLE FOR PEOPLE SO
WE CAN MAKE SURE WE ARE TRACKING AND THAT THE AUDITOR IS TRACKING AND EVEN TO THE INCLUSION
OF MAYBE A MEMBER OF THE BOARD BEING ON THE LIST OF THE HOTLINES, MEMBER OF THE AUDIT
COMMITTEE, SO IF SOMEBODY HAD A COMPLAINT OVER ANYBODY IN THE ADMINISTRATION, THE SUPERINTENDENT,
OR EVEN THE INTERNAL AUDITOR, THERE IS SOMEBODY AUDITING THE INTERNAL AUDITOR, SO I THOUGHT
THAT WAS A GOOD PROCESS, AND I AGAIN THANK OUR AUDITORS FOR WORKING PROACTIVELY ON OUR
BEHALF. AND THEN FINALLY, AT THE END OF THE MEETING, AND IT WAS KIND OF LIKE AFTER THE
LAKERS WON TWO CHAMPIONS SHIPS IN A ROW, AND SUMMONED WITH PROMISING A THREE-PEAT, — TWO
CHAMPIONSHIPS IN A ROW, WITH SOMEONE PROMISING A THREE-PEAT, WE HAVE GOT OPINIONS MANY TIMES
WITHOUT A SINGLE FINDING, AND THAT IS A PRETTY BIG ACCOMPLISHMENT. NOT A SINGLE FINDING TWO
YEARS IN A ROW, AND OUR SUPERINTENDENT PROMISED US A THREE-PEAT. THE INTERNAL AUDITOR, THERE
IS SOMEBODY AUDITINGSO THERE IT IS. IT IS OUT THERE. WE ARE WAITING FOR A THIRD BANNER.
SO IT IS JUST A JOB WELL DONE, DR. VURDIEN AND THE WHOLE TEAM.>>THANK YOU FOR THAT COMMENT, AND THANK YOU
FOR BEING HERE TODAY.>>THANK YOU, AND I BELIEVE IN YOUR PACKET,
THERE IS THE AUDIT REPORT FOR THE BOND ISSUE, SO, AGAIN, THAT IS ANOTHER CLEAN OPINION.
IT IS AN OPINION ON THE FUND. THAT FUND IS INCLUDED IN THE DISTRICT, AND IT HAS THE EDUCATION
CODE AS WELL AS THE CALIFORNIA CONSTITUTION, HE FINANCIAL AND THE PERFORMANCE AUDIT. IT
IS A CLEAN AUDIT ON BOTH PIECES OF THE AUDIT. IF YOU HAVE NOT YET HAD A CHANCE TO LOOK AT
IT IN DETAIL, ONE PAGE YOU MAY WANT TO PAY PARTICULAR ATTENTION TO IS PAGE 18 OF THE
REPORT, AND HERE IT SAYS IT WAS IN OUR PROCEDURES PERFORMED, IT SPECIFICALLY TELLS YOU THE NUMBER
OF TRANSACTIONS WE LOOKED AT AS WELL AS THE PERCENTAGE OF TOTAL TRANSACTIONS THAT WE LOOKED
AT, 30 SEPARATE TRANSACTIONS, SO WE ARE LOOKING AT THOSE FOR THE TYPICAL ATTRIBUTES WE WOULD
LOOK AT AS FAR AS TESTING, PURCHASE ORDER APPROVALS, WERE THE GOODS RECEIVED, ALL OF
THOSE CONTROL ISSUES, BUT THAT IT GOES A STEP FURTHER THAT IS SPECIFIC TO THE BOND AUDIT,
AND IT IS LOOKING AT THAT EXPENDITURE AND TYING IT BACK TO THE VOTER-APPROVED LIST TO
MAKE SURE THAT THAT IS APPROPRIATE TO BE USED WITH BOND PROCEEDS , AND HERE WE ARE GIVING
THE PERCENTAGE THAT WE TESTED. THE PROGRAM IS WINDING DOWN, SO THE PERCENTAGE TESTED
IS NOT AS HIGH BECAUSE THERE ARE SO MANY ITEMS OF A SMALLER DOLLAR NATURE AT THIS POINT.
THAT IN THE HEYDAY, IF YOU WILL, THEN THERE WERE A LOT OF VERY LARGE EXPENDITURES, CONSTRUCTION
COMPANIES AND CONSTRUCTION MANAGEMENT COMPANIES, AND NOW IT IS WINDING DOWN TO SMALLER ITEMS,
SO THE PERCENTAGE IS A LITTLE BIT LOWER, BUT THE NUMBER OF TRANSACTIONS — 30 IS STILL
A HIGH NUMBER OF TRANSACTIONS. SO AGAIN, ANOTHER CLEAN REPORT, AND THIS IS ONE THAT MAYBE THREE
OR FOUR YEARS AGO, WE HAD A FEW COMMENTS, MOSTLY RELATED TO THE UPKEEP OF THE WEBSITE
AND THOSE KINDS OF THINGS, BUT WE HAVE NOT HAD ANY FINDINGS RELATED TO MEASURE P, AS
WELL.>>THANK YOU VERY MUCH.>>OK, THANK YOU.>>I WANT TO THINK DR. OSTERLING.>>I HAD A COMMENT, AND I WANTED RENÉ, OUR
AUDITOR, TO STAY UP. FIRST, I WANT TO ECHO EVERYTHING MY FELLOW SUBCOMMITTEE MEMBERS
SAID ABOUT THE QUALITY OF THE AUDITORS AND THE ADMINISTRATION, AND THEN, RENÉE, IF YOU
WOULD NOT MIND, I WILL SEE HOW QUICK YOU ARE ON YOUR FEET. IF YOU COULD WALK US THROUGH
PAGE 45 AND JUST WALK US THROUGH WHAT OUR UNFUNDED ENGINE LIABILITY IS, INCREASE OVER
LAST YEAR AND THE RESERVES — WHAT OUR UNFUNDED LIABILITY IS, INCREASE OVER LAST YEAR, AND
THE IF YOU WOULD NOT MIND, IRESERVES.>>IN THAT SECTION? WHAT YOU’RE LOOKING AT?
THERE IS A VERY LENGTHY FOOTNOTE . I BELIEVE IT IS NOTE NINE IN THE FINANCIAL STATEMENT
THAT GOES THROUGH ALL OF THE DETAILS RELATED TO THE ACTIVITY, SO WHAT THIS PAGE IS LETTING
YOU KNOW, AT THE TOP AND THEN THE BOTTOM, WHAT — WHAT
YOUR PROPORTIONATE SHARE OF THE LIABILITY IS, SO FOR EACH OF THOSE LIABILITIES — I
APOLOGIZE. THE FINANCE COMMITTEE, I DID NOT BRING THEM TO THIS MEETING, THAT THIS IS YOUR
PROPORTIONAL SHARE OF THE ENTIRE LIABILITY, AND THE PORTION AS YOU CAN SEE IS A VERY SMALL
PERCENTAGE, BUT IT DOES EQUATE TO A VERY LARGE DOLLAR AMOUNT, SO BOTH OF THESE ARE CALCULATED
INDIVIDUALLY IN CONSULTATION WITH THE ACTUARY, SO IT IS AN ACTUARIAL COMPUTATION, AND THERE
IS A LOT OF FACTORS THAT GO INTO THAT CALCULATION. WHAT ESTIMATE IS BEING USED FOR INFLATION
COST, INVESTMENT, HOW THOSE WILL BE PROGRESSING OVER THE YEARS, AND SO YOUR PROPORTIONATE
SHARE OR EACH OF THOSE LIABILITIES FOR ONE IS $85 MILLION, AND ANOTHER IS $45 MILLION,
AND THAT IS IN COMPARISON TO WHAT YOU’RE COVERED PAYROLL IS, SO THOSE ARE THE EMPLOYEE PAYROLL,
WHAT YOU ARE PAYING THEM WHO ARE ELIGIBLE FOR EACH OF THOSE PLANS, SO IT IS A NUMBER
THAT IS, UNFORTUNATELY, GETTING LARGER. THE PHENOMENON THAT HAPPENS — I BELIEVE IT HAPPENED
4 — IN PARTICULAR FOR PERS , THE NUMBERS WENT IN THE WRONG DIRECTION. THE LIABILITY
WENT UP. THIS IS THE NET PENSION LIABILITY, SO THE TOTAL LIABILITY WENT UP, AND THEN THEIR
NET ASSETS WITHIN THE PENSION — THE INVESTMENT WENT DOWN, SO THE NET PENSION LIABILITY WENT
UP EVEN MORE SO BECAUSE THOSE NUMBERS ARE WORKING IN OPPOSITE DIRECTIONS. ANOTHER THING
THAT IS IMPORTANT TO NOTE IS THE EVALUATION. KEEP THAT WE ARE LOOKING AT IS A YEAR IN ARREARS.
BY THE TIME THE INFORMATION IS ALL TAX RELATED AND SHARED WITH US, THEY ARE NOT ABLE TO DO
IT FOR THE SAME YEAR THAT WE ARE AUDITING, SO IT IS ALWAYS A YEAR BEHIND, SO THIS IS
2016. AND I KNOW SOMETIMES THERE IS THAT DISCONNECT, BECAUSE IF YOU ARE READING THE PAPER, YOUR
HEARING OTHER THINGS ABOUT HOW THEY ARE GOING, BUT THAT IS BECAUSE YOU ARE READING WHAT IS
CURRENT, AND WE ARE SEEING WHAT IS HAPPENING IN 2017, AND EVEN WHAT WILL AFFECT 2017-2018
YES, THIS IS AN EVALUATION. KEEP HER AS OF 2016 IT IS A YEAR BEHIND WITH THE LACK TIME
— LAG TIME — THIS IS AN EVALUATION PERIOD AS OF 2016. IT IS A YEAR BEHIND WITH THE LACK
TIME — LAG TIME. AND THIS IS FOR BOTH OF THESE. JUST GIVE YOU SOME INSIGHTS INSIGHT
INTO HOW THIS LIABILITY CAN CHANGE IF THE INVESTMENT JUST CHANGES BY ONE PERCENTAGE,
EITHER MORE POSITIVE OR NEGATIVE. IF YOU LOOK AT PAGE 32 , THERE IS THE SENSITIVITY CALCULATION
— PAGE 32. SO YOUR CURRENT LIABILITY, YOUR PROPORTIONAL SHARE OF THE TOTAL LIABILITY,
IS THE $84 MILLION’S, BUT A PERCENTAGE WORSE THAN WHAT THE ACTUARIES ARE ANTICIPATING,
THAT WOULD INCREASE TO $122 MILLION. IF INVESTMENTS DO 1% BETTER, YOUR LIABILITY WOULD DECREASE
TO $54 MILLION. YOU CAN SEE HOW THAT CHANGES, AND THERE IS A SAME ANALYSIS OF THE OTHER
ONE ON ANOTHER PAGE.>>THEN — GO AHEAD. I AM SORRY. FINISH.>>SO ON PAGE 36, YOUR LIABILITY, YOUR PROPORTIONATE
SHARE IS $44 MILLION. IF INVESTMENTS DID WORSE BY 1%, YOUR LIABILITY WOULD GO UP TO $66 MILLION.
IF IT DOES BETTER BY 1%, YOUR LIABILITY WOULD GO DOWN TO $26 MILLION.>>FOR ONE, THE LIABILITY IN 2017 IS $85 MILLION.
IF YOU LOOK BACK TO 2015, THAT AMOUNT WAS ONLY 60 GET MILLION DOLLARS, SO IT HAS GROWN
SUBSTANTIALLY. AND ON — IT WAS ONLY 68 MILLION DOLLARS, SO IT HAS GROWN SUBSTANTIALLY. NOT
ONLY IS THE NUMBER SUBSTANTIAL, BUT IT IS A SIGNIFICANT AMOUNT.>>THANK YOU. AND THEN THE SECOND PART OF
MY TWO-PART QUESTION, IF YOU CAN GO TO THE PAGE WHERE WE STARTED TO LOOK AT THE LIABILITY
AND SHOW US THAT AMOUNT.>>YES. I KNOW WE HAVE IDENTIFIED ONE, HOW
MUCH YOU HAVE SET ASIDE FOR THAT, AND THAT WILL BE IN ONE SECTION, AS WELL. LET ME FIND
THAT PAGE. PAGE 44. AND SO YOU HAVE MILLIONS SET ASIDE FOR THAT. AND LET ME LOOK.>>RENEE, SORRY TO PUT YOU ON THE SPOT. WE
CAN FIND THAT LATER.>>THAT MIGHT BE ONE OF YOUR SEPARATE FUNDS.
WITHOUT ALL OF THE BALANCES IN FRONT OF ME. AND WE HAVE A NEW FUND 69?>>INTERNAL SERVICE FUND, PAGE 55?>>THAT MAY BE ON THE — YES. ON PAGE 55,
YES. THE OTHER INTERNAL SERVICE FUND, THE $5.3 MILLION. IT IS PROBABLY THAT NUMBER.>>THANK YOU.>>SO IT IS VERY POSITIVE THAT YOU HAVE THOSE
IDENTIFIED IN ANOTHER FUND. UNFORTUNATELY, THE CALCULATION, WHEN IT IS DONE, YOU DO NOT
GET CREDIT IF YOU ARE SETTING THOSE FUNDS ASIDE BECAUSE THEY ARE NOT YET IN THE TRUST,
SO THE ONLY WAY TO REDUCE THE LIABILITY ON YOUR FINANCIAL STATEMENT IS IF THOSE FUNDS
ARE IN AND IN REVOCABLE TRUST, SO IT DOES HELP OFFSET THAT YOUR BALANCE SHEET IS NOT
SITTING IN CASH, AND IT IS OFFSETTING THE LIABILITY, BUT IN TERMS OF REDUCING THE LIABILITY,
YOU WILL NOT GET THE BENEFIT OF REDUCING THE LIABILITY UNLESS IT
IS IN AND IN REVOCABLE TRUST, AND I KNOW THAT IS SOMETHING YOU HAVE BEEN DISCUSSING AND
MAYBE WILL MOVE FORWARD WITH AT SOME POINT IN TIME.>>RENEE. I JUST WANT TO THANK THE AUDITORS
FOR A JOB WELL DONE, BUT I ALSO WANT TO GIVE ACCOLADES TO THE COMMITTEE, BECAUSE WHILE
IT IS UNUSUAL TO HAVE A SUBCOMMITTEE, I THINK THAT OUR BOARD HAS BENEFITED FROM TRUSTEES
WHO USE THEIR TALENT AND TAKE OUR FIDUCIARY RESPONSIBILITY VERY SERIOUSLY AND MAKE SURE
THAT OUR BOARD IS WELL INFORMED, AND IT IS HARD SOMETIMES NOT TO DELVE INTO THE WEEDS,
BUT I THINK FOR THE MOST PART WE TRIED TO BE CAUTIOUS TO NOT OVERSTEP OUR BOUNDS ON
POLICY, AND I REALLY WANT TO THANK DR.VURDIEN FOR THAT. I DON’T THINK ALL PRESIDENTS WOULD,
BUT WHILE IT WAS NEW TO HIM, WE ALL LEARNED TO WORK TOGETHER, AND I SAY THIS FOR THE BENEFIT
OF THE AUDIENCE. THIS HAS BEEN IMPORTANT TO US. THANK YOU. THANK YOU, MS. WAH.>>AND THIS IS TO APPROVE THE 2016-2017. I
WILL ACCEPT A MOTION.>>MOTION.>>I HAVE A MOTION FROM MS. WAH.>>DOES THAT INCLUDE THE BOND? IN THE SAME
MOTION?>>LET’S ADD THAT TO THE MOTION. THANK YOU,
JOHN.>>PLEASE VOTE. THE VOTE IS UNANIMOUS. THE
STUDENT TRUSTEE. OUR NEXT ACTION ITEM TODAY IS THE PRESIDENTIAL SEARCH UPDATE. MR. PRESIDENT.>>IT SHOULD BE COMING DIRECTLY FROM YOU OR
FROM DR. SELVIDGE.>>YES, THE PRESIDENTIAL SEARCH EFFORT HAS
BEEN UNDERWAY FOR A COUPLE OF MONTHS NOW. THE AD HOC COMMITTEE OF THE BOARD, WHICH INCLUDES
MYSELF, TRUSTEE WAH, AND TRUSTEE OSTERLING HAS MET WELL BY WAY OF SEVERAL CONFERENCE
CALLS. UPON THE SELECTION OF OUR SEARCH CONSULTANT, WE HAVE HAD CONFERENCE CALLS WITH SENATOR
SERRANO , AND SHE IS PREPARED NOW TO GIVE US A STATUS REPORT ON WHERE WE ARE ON SEVERAL
OF THE KEY POINTS IN THIS EFFORT, AND THIS WILL BE A TIME WHEN THE ENTIRE BOARD, UPON
HEARING HER REPORT, CAN ASK QUESTIONS AND GET CLARIFICATIONS, AND TRUSTEE WAH, TRUSTEE
OSTERLING, AND I MIGHT CHIME IN TO ELABORATE.>>SO I WILL PROVIDE YOU WITH AN OVERVIEW
OF THE STATERS OF THE SEARCH AT THIS POINT, BUT FIRST, I WOULD LIKE TO INTRODUCE PATRICK.
HE IS THAT PRESIDENT OF COLLABORATIVE BRAIN TRUST, ALSO KNOWN AS CBT. PATRICK: THANK YOU, BOARD, STUDENTS. I WANT
TO THINK JACK SCOTT FOR SHOWING UP TODAY, THE CHANCELLOR, PRESIDENT, SENATOR. I THINK
THAT HE IS HERE TODAY SHOWS HIS LOVE AND COMMITMENT TO THIS COLLEGE, AND IT IS GREAT TO SEE YOU,
JACK. YOU ARE A PART OF THIS. [APPLAUSE] PATRICK: WHEN I WAS CALLED TO SEE WHETHER
CBT WAS INTERESTED IN THE SEARCH, AT CBT, I THINK YOU KNOW THAT I GET TO WORK WITH THESE
GREAT CHANCELLORS AND COUNSELORS NATIONALLY, AND WE HAVE TALKED ABOUT THE SEARCH PROCESS.
WE HAVE HAD CONCERNS ABOUT THE SEARCH PROCESS, AND WE CAME UP WITH SOME CONCERNS, HOW WE
CAN DO IT BETTER. CENTER HAS BEEN INVOLVED. JACK. AS YOU KNOW, BRYCE, AND ROCKY AND GEORGE,
AND THEN PEOPLE WHO ARE CHANCELLORS IN OTHER STATES. HOW CAN WE DO THIS BETTER? SO WE ARE
HERE TO HELP YOU FIND A SUPERINTENDENT. WE ARE GOING TO DO OUR BEST TO HELP YOU FIND
THE BEST SUPERINTENDENT. THE CRITICAL PIECE OF THIS THAT NO ONE HAS DONE UNTIL YOU HAVE
DECIDED TO DO IT, WE SO WE ARE HERE TO HELP YOU FIND A SUPERINTENDENT. ARE ALSO HERE TO
HELP YOU BE SUCCESSFUL AFTER THIS ELECTION IS MADE, SO WHEN I WAS CALLED, AND I AM SAYING
THIS DIGITALLY, I COULD NOT THINK OF ANYBODY BETTER TO LEAVE THE SEARCH THAN SANDRA. I
HAVE KNOWN HER FOR 17 YEARS. HER INTEGRITY AND INTELLIGENCE — WHEN SHE CALL SOMEONE
AND SAYS, I THINK THIS IS A GOOD FIT FOR YOU AND PASADENA IN, THEY ARE GOING TO LISTEN
TO HER. WHEN SHE TALKS TO BE FACULTY AND STAFF AND STUDENTS AND YOU, SHE IS GOING TO COME
UP WITH A REALLY GOOD FEEL OF WHAT IS GOING HERE. SO WE AT CBT, OUR CONSULTANTS, MYSELF,
WE ARE COMMITTED TO MAKING THE SUCCESSFUL. IT’S SANDRA NEEDS OUR HELP, WE ARE READY.
THANK YOU FOR THIS SELECTION. IT WAS COURAGEOUS ON YOUR PART. AND I THINK IT IS SOMETHING
WE WILL SEE AROUND THE COUNTRY IF IT IS SUCCESSFUL HERE.>>THANK YOU. AND YOU CAN SEE IT THERE IS
GOOD SUPPORT, WHETHER IT IS FORMAL OR INFORMAL SUPPORT THAT I AM RECEIVING THROUGH THIS PROCESS,
SO I AM PREPARED TO PROVIDE YOU WITH AN UPDATE. I CAN ASSURE THE CAMPUS COMMUNITY THAT THE
SUBCOMMITTEE , THE AD HOC SUBCOMMITTEE, OF THE BOARD IS VERY MUCH ENGAGED AND KEEPS ME
BUSY, BUT IT IS A BUSY I APPRECIATE, BECAUSE I HAVE HAD AN OPPORTUNITY, PARTICULARLY TODAY,
TO MEET WITH REPRESENTATIVES FROM THE EXTERNAL COMMUNITY, OF THE SERVICE AREA, AS WELL AS
MANY INDIVIDUALS THAT ARE HERE THIS EVENING, FROM THE CAMPUS LEADERSHIP GROUPS, TO BE PROVIDED
WITH A BETTER UNDERSTANDING OF THE OPPORTUNITIES AND CHALLENGES , AS WELL AS EXPECTATIONS THAT
EXIST ACROSS THE COLLEGE. SO LET ME BEGIN BY — TO GET THIS GOING. EXCUSE ME. I’M GOING
TO HAVE — ACTUALLY, I HAVE A HELPER. OH, VERY GOOD. THANK YOU. SO THERE IS A REVISED
TIMELINE FOR THE SEARCH. YOU SHOULD HAVE THAT. I’M GOING TO HAVE TO TOGGLE BACK AND FORTH.
THAT IS WHY I HAVE AN ASSISTANT HERE TODAY. WITH REGARDS TO THE TIMELINE, THERE IS A REVISED
TIMELINE. I CAN TELL YOU THAT THE PORTION OF NOVEMBER AND NOW DECEMBER THAT WE HAVE
MADE PROGRESS IN MEETINGS WITH THE BOARD SUBCOMMITTEE AND, IN FACT, HAVE NOW RECEIVED INPUT FROM
SEVERAL CAMPUS CONSTITUENTS, AND TOMORROW, THAT WORK WILL CONTINUE, SO WHAT WAS PLANNED
FOR NOVEMBER IN FACT, HAVE NOW RECEIVED INPUT FROM AND DECEMBER IS ACTUALLY WELL UNDERWAY,
AND THERE WILL BE A REPORT THAT I WILL GENERATE FOR THE BOARD WITH INPUT THAT I HAVE RECEIVED
FROM THE PRESIDENT’S ADVISORY GROUP AS WELL AS FROM THE LEADERSHIP THAT I MET WITH TODAY.
THERE ARE ALSO MEETINGS PLANNED FOR TOMORROW WITH REGARDS TO TOMORROW’S MEETING — I WILL
BE MEETING WITH EACH OF THE GOVERNANCE GROUPS. THE MANAGEMENT ASSOCIATION, THE CLASSIFIED
SENATE, AS WELL AS THE ACADEMIC SENATE. I WAS JUST INFORMED THAT, INDEED, THE ACADEMIC
SENATE IS A MEETING OF THE ACADEMIC SENATE, SO IT WILL BE — THAT MEETING WILL BE CONDUCTED
WITH MORE THAN JUST THE PRESIDENT, AND AT THIS POINT, I WOULD LIKE TO LET THE CLASSIFIED
MANAGEMENT ASSOCIATION’S KNOW THAT IF, YOU HAVE OTHER REPRESENTATIVES FROM YOUR ASSOCIATIONS
THAT WISH TO PARTICIPATE, THEY ARE ENCOURAGED TO PARTICIPATE. GOING DOWN THIS PARTICULAR
DOCUMENT — WELL, I GUESS I AM NOT GOING TO GO DOWN THIS PARTICULAR DOCUMENT. THEN WE
WILL BE — AGAIN, I WILL PUT TOGETHER A SUMMARY. I WILL CREATE A SUMMARY OF THE CONSTITUENT
INPUT, AND THAT WILL INFORM THE DEVELOPMENT OF THE JOB DESCRIPTION. AT THIS POINT, I HAVE
REVIEWED THE JOB DESCRIPTION THAT EXISTED WHEN THE BROCHURE FOR THE LAST SEARCH WAS
CONDUCTED. SO I HAVE A MARKUP, AND I HAVE REVISED THE OPPORTUNITIES AND CHALLENGES,
TRYING TO SYNTHESIZE THAT PARTICULAR COMPONENT OF THE DOCUMENT. AND SO, BY THE BEGINNING
— BY THE END OF DECEMBER, I WILL HAVE A DRAFT THAT I WILL SHARE WITH THE SUBCOMMITTEE, AND
THEN FROM INPUT FROM THE SUBCOMMITTEE AND REVIEWING THAT DRAFT, I HAVE MET WITH THE
DIRECTOR OF STRATEGIC COMMUNICATIONS, AND HE HAS INDICATED TO ME THAT HE CAN TURN AROUND
THE DESIGN AND THE SEARCH BROCHURE, LIKELY WITHIN TWO DAYS , SO THAT SHOULD BE COMPLETED
DURING THE FIRST WEEK BACK AFTER THE BREAK THAT OCCURS BEGINNING DECEMBER 18. SO I BELIEVE
WE ARE GOING TO BE ON TRACK FOR A PROCESS THAT WILL INCLUDE INTERVIEWS IN APRIL. I WAS
CONCERNED ABOUT THE CHANGING OF THE BOARD MEETINGS IN APRIL, BUT I BELIEVE THAT WITH
REGARD TO THE ACTUAL SCREENING BY THE COMMITTEE THAT NEEDS TO BE APPOINTED BY THE BOARD THAT
WE WILL BE ABLE TO REMAIN ON TRACK WITHOUT THE APRIL 18 BOARD MEETING. SO AT THIS TIME,
I DO WANT TO POINT OUT THAT ACCORDING TO BOARD POLICY, THE SCREENING COMMITTEE IS COMPOSED
OF 15 MEMBERS AND THAT EACH ONE OF THE BOARD OF TRUSTEES IS TO NOMINATE OR ACTUALLY A POINT
A MEMBER FROM YOUR TRUSTEE AREAS TO SERVE ON THE SCREENING COMMITTEE. ADDITIONALLY,
THE ACADEMIC SENATE, THE CLASSIFIED, AND THE CLASSIFIED SENATE, ARE TO EACH APPOINT TWO
REPRESENTATIVES , AND THE MANAGEMENT ASSOCIATION IS TO APPOINT ONE REPRESENTATIVE. THE EXECUTIVE
COMMITTEE HAS ONE REPRESENTATIVE. THE STUDENT TRUSTEE AND THE ASSOCIATED STUDENT PRESIDENT
OR REPRESENTATIVE SERVE ON THIS COMMITTEE. A MEMO WILL BE PREPARED, BUT I WANTED TO GET
THAT ON THE RADAR SO THAT INDIVIDUAL TRUSTEES AS WELL AS THE OTHER REPRESENTATIVE GROUPS
WILL BEGIN TO THINK ABOUT WHO WILL BE SERVING ON THEIR BEHALF. I SEE THAT THERE IS A QUESTION.
I JUST WONDER –>>I JUST WONDER. A QUESTION WAS RAISED TODAY.
THE BOARD POLICY, THE GROUP OF 15, IS THAT IN LINE WITH YOUR OTHER ONES THAT YOU HAVE
WORKED WITH? IS THAT A GOOD NUMBER? MS. SERRANO: THEY VARY. I WOULD SAY YOU WANT
DIFFERENT ONES FOR YOUR GROUPS. THAT MEANS YOU WILL HAVE AT LEAST A COMMITTEE THE SIZE
OF AT LEAST 10. WITH REGARDS TO HAVING SOMEONE APPOINTED BY EACH TRUSTEE FOR THEIR TRUSTEE
AREA, I HAVE NOT SEEN THAT OCCUR IN OTHER SEARCHES, BUT IT IS THE BOARD POLICY, AND
IT IS — IT DOES REPRESENT THE COMPOSITION OF THE SCREENING COMMITTEE. THE SCREENING
COMMITTEE, THEIR ROLE IS TO REVIEW THE APPLICATIONS, SO IT IS A PAPER SCREENING. IT IS NOT AN INTERVIEW
PROCESS WITH THE CANDIDATES. THEY THEN MAKE A RECOMMENDATION TO THE BOARD AS TO WHICH
OF THE APPLICANTS SHOULD MOVE FORWARD TO BE INTERVIEWED, AND NOW, THE BOARD DOES HAVE
THE DISCRETION OF ADDING SOMEONE TO THAT INTERVIEW POOL, AND I DON’T KNOW THAT THAT HAS EVER
BEEN DONE, BUT THERE IS A PROVISION THAT ALLOWS THE BOARD TO DO THAT. BUT AS TO SIZE, I DON’T
THINK — 15 MIGHT BE LARGER THAN NORMAL, BUT IT IS WITHIN REASON.>>THANK YOU.>>YES, AND THANK YOU SO FAR FOR THE PRESENTATION.
I WAS PUZZLED. MY CHARGE TO APPOINT SOMEONE TO THE STEERING COMMITTEE ON IT TWO COUNTS.
FIRST OF ALL COME WHAT KIND OF TIME COMMITMENT WE CAN EXPECT — I AM ASSUMING IT IS A FEW
MEETINGS — FIRST OF ALL, WHAT KIND OF TIME COMMITMENT CAN WE EXPECT? I AM EXHUMING — ASSUMING
IT IS A FEW? MS. SERRANO: A FEW. THE SCREENING COMMITTEE, THERE
WOULD BE ONE MEETING TO BRING THE ENTIRE GROUP TOGETHER AND REVIEW EQUAL OPPORTUNITY REVISIONS
OF LAW — PROVISIONS OF LAW AND THE PROCESS AND TO GO OVER THE RATING OF CANDIDATES, SO
THAT COULD BEAT COP LIST IN ONE MEETING. WITH REGARDS TO THE ACTUAL REVIEW OF THE APPLICATIONS,
THAT IS USUALLY WHAT TAKES THE MOST TIME. DEPENDING ON THE NUMBER OF APPLICANTS, AND
MY UNDERSTANDING IS THAT THAT CAN BE CONDUCTED WITH A SECURE ONLINE REVIEW AND THAT THAT
REVIEW IS PASSWORD-PROTECTED FOR EACH OF THE REPRESENTATIVES AND CAN BE PERFORMED ONLINE
EITHER ON THIS CAMPUS OR AT A REMOTE SITE, SUCH AS THEIR HOME.>>SO THE STEERING COMMITTEE THEN WILL DO
A PAPER SCREENING OF THE BROAD POOL OF APPLICANTS , AS SUGGESTED? AND THEN WHAT IS THEIR CHARGE
WITH THE RECOMMENDATION? MS. SERRANO: THEIR CHARGE IS AFTER THE REVIEW
OF THE APPLICANT FILES, THEN MAKE A RECOMMENDATION OF THOSE CANDIDATES THAT MEET THE MINIMUM
QUALIFICATIONS TO MOVE FORWARD TO BE INTERVIEWED BY THE BOARD.>>AND THE FINAL QUESTION IS JUST A BIT OF
ADVICE, AND, AGAIN, THIS IS MY FIRST TIME AROUND ON THIS, SO FORGIVE THE QUESTION. ONE
OF THE THINGS I HAVE BEEN WRESTLING WITH IS WHETHER OR NOT THE PERSON THAT I APPOINT WILL
BE THE KIND OF PERSON WHO IS SORT OF THE TRADITIONAL FATHER OR MOTHER, A DISTINGUISHED CITIZEN
PERSON WITH, PERHAPS, EXPERIENCE, OR SHOULD IT BE SOMEBODY WHO IS REALLY MORE OF A REPRESENTATIVE
OF THE COMMUNITY IN A GRASSROOTS SENSE? SOMEBODY WHO MIGHT COME FOR EXAMPLE, BE PART OF A NONPROFIT
ORGANIZATION OR — BECAUSE I DO THINK THAT YOU CAN GET SOME — THERE CAN BE SOME BIAS
JUST BUILT IN WHEN PEOPLE COME FROM THE ESTABLISHMENT. LET’S JUST PUT IT THAT WAY. AND PEOPLE WHO
ARE MAYBE IN A DIFFERENT SORT OF SEGMENT OF SOCIETY. SO I AM PUZZLED ABOUT THAT. AS AN
ELECTED OFFICIAL, I AM CONCERNED ABOUT THAT, THAT IT NOT ALL TAKE PLACE AT KIND OF A HIGH
LEVEL. MS. SERRANO: WHAT IS WANTED IN TERMS OF THE
STEERING COMMITTEE IS THAT IT BE A DIVERSE BOOK REPRESENTATIVES IN THE PASADENA SERVICE
AREA AND THEREFORE, SOMETIMES THERE WILL BE, OH, LET’S SAY A SUPERINTENDENT OF A SCHOOL
DISTRICT MIGHT SERVE.>>BUT ARE YOU LOOKING FOR SOME PARTICULAR
EXPERTISE, OR ARE YOU LOOKING FOR A GENERAL PERSPECTIVE ON THE SEARCH? MS. SERRANO: WELL, IT IS NOT REALLY EXPERTISE,
BUT YOU DO WANT SOMEONE WHO WILL SPEND THE TIME REVIEWING ALL OF THE MATERIALS, BECAUSE
THERE WILL BE A LOT OF MATERIALS THAT NEED TO BE READ AND THAT THEY CAN BE OBJECTIVE
IN TERMS OF MEETING THE BOARD DESIRE TO HAVE A PRESIDENT SUPERINTENDENT WHO MEETS THE MINIMUM
QUALIFICATIONS AS WILL BE OUTLINED IN THE SEARCH BROCHURE, AND SO WE STILL HAVE THAT
PROCESS TO GO THROUGH , BUT I DON’T KNOW — HOW MANY OF YOU WERE HERE FOR THE LAST SEARCH?
OK. ALL RIGHT. REALLY, IT IS A REPRESENTATIVE OF YOUR CHOICE WHO UNDERSTANDS THE ROLE OF
HIGHER EDUCATION, SPECIFICALLY OF COMMUNITY COLLEGES, UNDERSTANDS THE NEEDS OF THE COMMUNITY
AND TERMS OF PROVIDING EDUCATIONAL OPPORTUNITY AND PROMOTING STUDENT SUCCESS AND CAN REPRESENT
THE COMMUNITY AT LARGE AND THE DIVERSITY THAT EXISTS IN THE COMMUNITY.>>YES. THANK YOU SO MUCH. I APPRECIATE THE
ANSWER. I APPRECIATE THE ANSWER.>>I WANTED TO FOLLOW UP.>>ONE OF THE THINGS WE TALKED ABOUT IS WHETHER
OR NOT WE SHOULD ASK TO HAVE AN ALTERNATE READY IN CASE YOUR PRIMARY PERSON RECOMMENDED
CANNOT, BUT I WOULD ASK, MS. SERRANO, IF, AT SOME POINT, WHEN YOU ARE CONVEYING THIS
TIMELINE AND ARE TRYING TO GET SOMEONE TOGETHER, IF SOMEONE CANNOT SERVE, OR YOU ARE HAVING
A DIFFICULT TIME, YOU CAN TELL THE BOARD SO THAT WE KNOW WE MAYBE NEED TO HAVE AN ALTERNATE,
SO MY RECOLLECTION WAS FROM THE LAST SEARCH. A MEMBER REALLY HAD AN IMPACT IN SCHEDULE
AND COULD NOT ATTEND THE TRAINING OR THE FIRST REVIEW, SO WE HAD TO DELAY FOR LIKE A MONTH
OR SO, AND BECAUSE WE ARE ON SUCH A TIGHT TIMELINE, MAYBE IT IS NOT BEST — MAYBE IF
WE HAD AN ALTERNATE, THAT WOULD BE SOMETHING I WOULD RECOMMEND. THE OTHER THING IS YOUR
CONCERN ABOUT THE APRIL MEETING. MY RECOLLECTION WAS WE CALLED A SPECIAL MEETING OF THE BOARD
WHEN WE WENT TO INTERVIEW, SO I WOULD NOT BE CONCERNED ABOUT HAVING IT DURING A REGULAR
BOARD MEETING, ESPECIALLY IF WE ARE GOING TO ONE BOARD MEETING. IT WILL BE IMPACTED
ANYWAY. AND THEN AS YOU ARE GOING THROUGH YOUR SCHEDULE, DR. VUR DIEN, OR IT MIGHT HAVE
BEEN YOU, SENATOR, WHO ASKED WHAT ARE THE BEST TIMES TO MEET, SO I JUST CONFERRED EARLIER
WITH TRUSTEE MARTIN, THE CUTS ARE AREAS KIND OF HOVER AROUND THAT CENTER, AND I ASKED SOME
COMMITTEE MEMBERS, AND THEY THOUGHT MAYBE AFTER SIX: SOME REFRESHMENTS, MAYBE A WAY TO GET
PEOPLE, AND THEN JOHN IS HERE, AND I THINK DR. BELL RECOMMENDED ABOUT WHAT WORKS FOR
YOUR COMMUNITIES, TOO. MS. SERRANO: AND I HAD NOT GOTTEN TO THAT
POINT QUITE YET, BUT YES.>>ALL RIGHT, A LITTLE MORE SPECIFIC BACKGROUND
ON THE PREVIOUS SEARCH AND THE NUMBER OF MEETINGS OF THE SCREENING COMMITTEE. THE SCREENING
COMMITTEE HAD A MEETING THAT WAS COMMITTED TO THE EEO ASPECTS OF HIRING AND OTHER H.R.
MATTERS. THERE WAS ONE MEETING FOR THAT. IT WAS ALL HANDS, THE ENTIRE SCREENING COMMITTEE,
AND THEN THERE WERE TWO SEPARATE MEETINGS. THEY COULD HAVE TAKEN A FULL DAY, EACH ONE
OF THOSE, BUT THE MEMBERS OF THE SCREENING COMMITTEE LAST TIME DID HAVE THE ABILITY TO
DO HOMEWORK AND GO OVER THE APPLICATIONS AT HOME ON THE COMPUTER, SO THIS SOUNDS LIKE
WHAT WE WERE DOING LAST TIME, AND THAT IS THE KIND OF COMMITMENT. THE EEO MEETING, PROBABLY
2 — I WOULD EXPECT TWO LONG MEETINGS GOING OVER THE APPLICANTS AND DISCUSSING THEM. THERE
WAS ONE RULE. I REMEMBER STAN — LAST TIME AROUND — A MEMBER NEEDS TO PARTICIPATE IN
ALL THREE OF THOSE, THEY CAN MISS THE SECOND ONE AND BE THERE FOR THE THIRD ONE. THERE
NEEDS TO BE A COMMITMENT. THAT HAVING BEEN SAID, THE SOONER WE CAN HOME IN ON WHAT IT
IS LIKELY TO BE, THE MORE CERTAIN. MS. SERRANO: AND SO, I WILL WORK WITH THE
COLLEGE IN IDENTIFYING THE SPECIFIC DATES THAT THOSE MEETINGS WILL TAKE PLACE, SUBJECT
TO WHEN THE DEADLINE OCCURS THAT WE HAVE AN ADEQUATE POOL TO MOVE FORWARD TO THE BOARD
FOR INTERVIEW. SO I WANT TO MAKE SURE THAT WHILE WE WILL MAKE EVERY EFFORT TO HAVE AN
ADEQUATE POOL OF WELL-QUALIFIED INDIVIDUALS THAT ARE A FIT FOR PASADENA, IT MAY BE THAT
BECAUSE OF A NUMBER OF OTHER SEARCHES THAT ARE OCCURRING THAT PEOPLE ARE MAKING DIFFERENT
DECISIONS. BUT WE WILL DO OUR BEST TO MAXIMIZE THAT POOL.>>THANK YOU. I WANT TO QUALIFY THE AMOUNT
OF TIME REQUIRED TO REVIEW APPLICATIONS. AND I’M GOING TO PICK SOME NUMBERS THAT YOU CAN
CORRECT. MS. SERRANO: OK.>>AND I THINK I AM GETTING THIS FOR MY REP.
LET’S SAY YOU ARE READING 50 APPLICATIONS, AND IT IS FIVE OR 10 MINUTES PER APPLICATION,
YOU JUST TALKED ABOUT 40 EIGHT AND I THINK I AM GETTING THIS FOR MY HOURS OF HER READING
APPLICATION TIME — 48 HOURS OF PURE READING TIME. IT
ALSO RAISED A QUESTION IN MY MIND. DO YOU DO ANY PRELIMINARY SCREENING BEFORE THE COMMITTEE
SEES THE DOCUMENTS, WHERE THERE IS SOMEBODY, FOR EXAMPLE, IN THE JOB DESCRIPTION THAT THIS
REQUIRES A MASTERS DEGREE, OR SOMEONE DOES NOT HAVE A MASTERS OR DANCE DEGREE. DO YOU
DO>>
ALL FILES ARE REVIEWED FOR MEETING MINIMUM QUALIFICATIONS BECAUSE WE DO NOT WANT TO MOVE
FORWARD ANYONE WHO DOES NOT MEET THE MINIMUM QUALIFICATIONS.>>SO YOU ARE RECEIVING, AND I’M SURE THERE
IS A WIDE RANGE, YOU MIGHT BE RECEIVING 80 APPLICATIONS OF WHICH YOU ARE — YOU HAVE
THOSE GOING TO COMMITTEE. MS. SERRANO: MOST WILL MEET MINIMUM QUALIFICATIONS.
ANY OTHER QUESTIONS OR COMMENTS ON THAT? THEN CONTINUING, THE GOAL IS TO HAVE A SCREENING
COMMITTEE COMPLETE THEIR WORK BY THE END OF MARCH, SO THAT WE CAN BEGIN TO DO SOME REFERENCE
CHECKING , AND ALSO BACKGROUND CHECKING AND MOVE CANDIDATES FORWARD TO BE INTERVIEWED
BY THE BOARD OF TRUSTEES. IN APRIL. I DID NOT RAISE THE OBJECTION BECAUSE I REALIZED
THAT, WE CAN CALL A MEETING, BUT I HAD BEEN CONCERNED THAT MAYBE WE WERE ELIMINATING AN
OPPORTUNITY TO MEET IN APRIL AT A NECESSARY TIME. IN TERMS OF MY INTENTIONS, AND I HAD
MENTIONED PREVIOUSLY THAT THIS IS AN AGGRESSIVE SCHEDULE, HOWEVER, I WANT TO ENSURE THAT THE
MAXIMUM NUMBER OF INTERESTED AND WELL-QUALIFIED APPLICANTS WILL PUT THEIR HAT INTO THE RING,
AND THAT’S BECAUSE MANY SEARCHES HAVE ALREADY BEGUN, AND MAY HAVE CUT OFF DATES AROUND MARCH
AND APRIL, SO I WOULD JUST LIKE TO MAKE SURE THAT WE HAVE AN ADEQUATE POOL FOR THIS POSITION,
FOR THIS COLLEGE. ONCE THE INTERVIEWS ARE CONDUCTED AND THE BOARD STARTS TO IDENTIFY
THE THREE FINALISTS, THEN WE DO PLAN TO HAVE THESE APPLICANTS VISIT THESE FINALISTS, VISIT
THE COLLEGE AND PARTICIPATE IN FORUMS AT THE INSTITUTION, AND INVITE NOT ONLY INTERNAL
CONSTITUENTS BUT THE COMMUNITY AT LARGE TO HAVE AN OPPORTUNITY TO MEET AND LISTEN TO
THESE INDIVIDUALS AND TO PROVIDE FEEDBACK ON A COMMENT CARD WHERE THEY ARE ABLE TO PROVIDE
FEEDBACK. IT WILL REVIEW THAT FEEDBACK — WE WILL REVIEW THAT FEEDBACK AND COMPONENT SO
THAT CAN ALSO INFORM THE BOARD. IT IS MY GOAL AND HOPEFULLY IT WILL BE YOUR GOAL TO HAVE
A SUPERINTENDENT PRESIDENT APPOINTED, AT SOME POINT IN MAY, BUT CERTAINLY NO LATER THAN
THE VERY BEGINNING OF JUNE.>>I JUST WANT TO BE SURE, I KNOW I MISSED
LAST WEEK’S MEETING OR WHATEVER, BUT DID I HEAR YOU SAY THREE? MS. SERRANO: AT LEAST. IT MAY BE TWO, BUT
TYPICALLY IF THERE ARE THREE FINALISTS THAT ARE MOVING FORWARD, IT REALLY DEPENDS ON THE
POOL AND THE INTERVIEWS AND HOW THEY HAVE DONE.>>I’VE HEARD THAT TRUSTEES HAVE BEEN SENDING
THEIR DELEGATES INTO MARIE THOMPSON, AND WE SHOULD TRY TO DO THAT BEFORE THE CHRISTMAS
HOLIDAY. MS. BROWN: SO WE WILL SEE MORE THAN THREE
IF WE HAVE MORE THAN THREE GOOD CANDIDATES. MS. SERRANO: YOU WILL SEE A GROUP THAT THE
SCREENING COMMITTEE HAS IDENTIFIED TO MOVE FORWARD TO THE BOARD, AND I DON’T KNOW HOW
LARGE THAT GROUP WILL BE, BUT TYPICALLY, IT IS MORE THAN FIVE. IT MAY BE 10 OR LESS, BUT
DEFINITELY MORE THAN FIVE. AND FROM THAT GROUP YOU WILL IDENTIFY THE FINALISTS THAT RISE
TO THE TOP, AND MOVE THEM FORWARD FOR — TWO FORMS, SO THAT THE CAMPUS COMMUNITY CAN BE
ENGAGED IN PROVIDING FEEDBACK TO THE BOARD TO INFORM THE DECISION FOR THE ACTUAL SELECTION
OF THE NEXT SUPERINTENDENT PRESIDENT.>>ON HIS WANTED TO ADD, ARE SUBCOMMITTEE
MET, ONE OF THE THINGS MS. BROWN ASSURED US, THEY ARE NOT COUNTING BY THE NUMBERS, SO WHATEVER
NUMBER QUALIFIED CANDIDATES ARE ADVISABLE OR TO BE FORWARDED AND PROMOTED TO THE POOR,
THAT IS WHAT THEY WILL DO, SO THEY ARE NOT COUNTING NUMBERS. I THOUGHT THAT WAS VERY
ADVANTAGEOUS FOR US. THE OTHER THING I WANTED TO ADD IS, I DID HAVE A CHANCE TO SIT IN HERE
PART OF THE ADVISORY DISCUSSION AND I REALLY HAVE TO APPLAUD THEM, THEY’VE BEEN VERY OPEN
TO MEETING WHENEVER GROUPS MET AND MADE THEMSELVES AVAILABLE. THE FEEDBACK I HEARD THAT THE AFRICAN-AMERICANS
AND THE PITINO’S, THE I HEAR I THINK IS VERY PRODUCTIVE. THE INPUT FROM EACH OF THE ADVISORIES
WAS VERY CONSISTENT ACROSS THE BOARD. THE CERTAINLY WOULD LIKE TO HAVE THE COMMITTEE
BE A DIVERSE COMMITTEE THAT REPRESENTS THE ENTIRE PASADENA SERVICE AREA, AND TO HAVE
CANDIDATES THAT MIRROR THE COMMUNITY. WITH REGARD TO ANOTHER ITEM THAT WAS BROUGHT UP,
I AM MEETING WITH CONSTITUENTS THROUGHOUT THE SERVICE AREA. AS I INDICATED, I MET WITH
THESE ADVISORIES AND SOME OF THE EMPLOYEES OF THE INSTITUTION. I ALSO HAD AN OPPORTUNITY
SPEAK WITH DR. BELL, AND DR. BELL IS ARRANGING MEETINGS AT JOHN YOUR HIGH SCHOOL, AT THE
ROSEMEAD CENTER, AND ALSO AT THE FOOTHILLS SITE. IN THOSE MEETINGS WILL BE CONDUCTED
AT A TIME OF DAY THAT WILL MAXIMIZE DISSIPATION FROM INDIVIDUALS LIVING IN CLOSE PROXIMITY
TO THOSE AREAS. THERE WILL ALSO BE A COMMUNITY FORUM PLANNED HERE ON THE MAIN CAMPUS. SO
THERE WILL BE AT LEAST OR WHERE OPPORTUNITIES — FOR OPPORTUNITIES TO RECEIVE INPUT FROM
THE COMMUNITY AT LARGE, AS WELL AS FROM THE INTERNAL COMMUNITY.>>JUST A QUICK QUESTION, DO WE HAVE A DEADLINE
FOR TRUSTEES AND THE OTHER CONSTITUENT GROUPS MAKING THEIR APPOINTMENTS, AND THEN IF WE
COULD GET A QUICK WORK FROM MARIAN HOW MANY OF THOSE SELECTIONS HAVE ALREADY BEEN SENT>>YOU HAVE THIS IN YOUR PACKET. THE OTHER
PARLIAMENTS HAVE BEEN MADE.>>GREAT, THANK YOU.>>THEN I HAD ONE MORE QUESTION. I WOULD THINK
THAT FOR THE INDIVIDUAL TRUSTEES HERE, RATHER THAN LETTING — FLOODING MS. SERRANO: WITH OUR QUESTIONS, MAYBE THEY WERE
BE A MEMBER OF THE AD HOC COMMITTEE THAT IF WE HAVE QUESTIONS COULD DIRECT THOSE TWO MS. SERRANO:. WOULD YOU PROPOSE
TO DO THAT? IS ANYBODY VOLUNTEERING?>>I’M SAYING THAT WE HAVE AN AD HOC COMMITTEE
THE PRESIDENTIAL SEARCH, AND I MAY HAVE SOME FOLLOW-UP QUESTIONS, SOME ADDITIONAL QUESTIONS
FOR MS. SERRANO. RATHER THAN AS INDIVIDUAL TRUSTEES BOMBARDING HER WITH HIS QUESTIONS,
THERE COULD BE ONE PERSON ON THE AD HOC COMMITTEE TO BE A LIAISON.>>WOULD YOU PREFER THE QUESTIONS GO TO YOU
OR WOULD YOU PREFER THERE BE A POINT PERSON? MS. SERRANO: I’M FINE EITHER WAY. I SHARE
MY EMAILED PHONE NUMBERS, I CAN GET THOSE THE OR MEMBER IF YOU LIKE TO COMMUNICATE DIRECTLY
WITH ME. IF YOU WOULD PREFER TO COMMUNICATE WITH YOUR SUBCOMMITTEE MEMBERS.>>THAT THINK WHY THAT MIGHT BE USEFUL WOULD
BE THEN THE AD HOC COMMITTEE WOULD KNOW WHAT SOME OF THE QUESTIONS COMING TO YOU ARE. WE
CAN DO IT EITHER WAY. I COULD COPY YOU ON THE QUESTION, BUT I THINK IT IS IMPORTANT
THAT THE AD HOC COMMITTEE BE APPRISED OF ALL THE QUESTIONS THAT ARE COMING INTO YOU FROM
THE INDIVIDUAL MEMBERS. MS. SERRANO: ABSOLUTELY, AND I WANT TO ASSURE
YOU THAT HOWEVER IT IS DONE, WE HAVE HAD GREAT COMMUNICATION, DISCUSSING VARIOUS ISSUES , AND
KEEPING EACH OTHER INFORMED ON WHERE WE ARE.>>GREAT, THANK YOU SO MUCH.>>THAT IS PERFECT.>>I SECOND. MY QUESTION WAS ALREADY ASKED. DR. SELVIDGE: I’M NOT GOING TO TRY TO P NEW
DOWN TO EXACT DATES BUT WE ARE LOOKING AT TRYING TO HAVE THE SCREENING COMMITTEE MEETING
IN MARCH, APRIL, THAT TIMEFRAME, APRIL, AND THAT MEANS WE HAVE TO HAVE THE APPLICATIONS
IN FROM THE APPLICATIONS BY THEN — FROM THE APPLICANTS BY THEN, WHICH MEANS WE OUGHT TO
GET THE APPLICATIONS AND THE OFFICIAL ANNOUNCEMENT IN THE OFFICIAL PACKET THAT SOMEBODY WOULD
LOOK AT IN SAY I NEED TO GET ALL THE MATERIALS TOGETHER. THAT WOULD HAVE TO OCCUR –>>THE FIRST OR SECOND WEEK OF JANUARY. DR. SELVIDGE: WE NEED TO HAVE A FINAL POSITION
DESCRIPTION AND WE WANT THAT POSITION DESCRIPTION TO REFLECT THE INPUT WE HAVE RECEIVED FROM
ROSEMEAD, JOHN YOUR, MY ALMA MATER, AND THE MAIN CAMPUS. THE WHAT DATES DO YOU THINK IT
IS PRACTICAL TO HAVE THOSE FOR THE MEETINGS? IT SEEMS TO ME IT WOULD BE PRETTY QUICK.>>IN MEETING WITH DR. BELL, FOR THE QUICK.
CERTAINLY IF IT TAKES TWO OR THREE DAYS, IT IS WHAT WE DISCUSSED. WE KNOW WE NEED TO MOVE
QUICKLY.>>WE LOOKED AT THE DATES OF JANUARY 9 AND
11 TO ORGANIZE AND HOLD THOSE MEETINGS THAT WILL GIVE US ENOUGH TIME TO ORGANIZE THE BEEN
USING GET THE INFORMATION OUT TO THE COMMUNITY.>>THOSE EITHER DAYS WHEN THE EVENTS WOULD
OCCUR AND THE INPUT FROM THE EVENTS WOULD THEN BE INCORPORATED. WE COULD HAVE EVERYTHING
UP IN THE PACKAGE READY TO GO AND INCORPORATE THE INPUT FROM THOSE MEETINGS WITHIN A COUPLE
OF DAYS AND THEN WE WOULD HIT THE STREET. MS. SERRANO: AS I INDICATED IN SPEAKING WITH
THE DIRECTOR OF STRATEGIC COMMUNICATION, HE FELT THAT BOTH DESIGN AND HAVING IT READY
FOR PRINT COULD OCCUR OVER THE COURSE OF A TWO DAY PERIOD. THANK YOU.>>SO THE POSITION DESCRIPTION, I WAS ASKED
TO HAVE A POSITION DESCRIPTION THIS EVENING. I DON’T HAVE A POSITION DESCRIPTION, OTHER
THAN THE EXISTING ONE. I DO NOT HAVE THIS WAS MARKED UP, BUT I HAVE STARTED A MARKUP.
BUT I DID WANT TO EXPLAIN THAT I NEED THE INPUT FROM THE GROUPS THAT I AM MEETING WITH
TODAY AND TOMORROW AS WELL AS FROM THE COMMUNITY AT LARGE. SO THIS WILL BE A WORK IN PROGRESS,
AND AT THIS POINT, BASED ON HOW WE ARE ORGANIZE, I WOULD BE RELYING ON THE BOARD SUBCOMMITTEE
TO PROVIDE ME WITH FEEDBACK, AND THEREFORE, COME UP WITH WHATEVER WILL BECOME THE FINAL
JOB DESCRIPTION. I HAVE ALREADY SPENT SEVERAL HOURS RELATED TO THE CHALLENGES AND OPPORTUNITIES.
THERE IS ONE OTHER SECTION THAT IN TERMS OF PREFERRED QUALIFICATIONS, A COUPLE OF SUGGESTIONS,
AND THEN SOMEHOW LOOKING AT THE PROFESSIONAL CHARACTERISTICS AND PERSONAL QUALITIES, AND
START TO SYNTHESIZE THAT SO THAT IT IS A READABLE AND WORKABLE DOCUMENT. SO THAT IS WHERE THE
POSITION DESCRIPTION IS AT THIS POINT. THE EXISTING POSITION DESCRIPTION IS BEING USED
AS THE FOUNDATION FROM WHICH TO PROVIDE AN UPDATED JOB DESCRIPTION. MR. MARTIN: I DID NOT GET A COPY IN MY PACKET
OR ELECTRONICALLY OF THE PEOPLE THAT HAVE BEEN RECOMMENDED SO FAR TO THE COMMITTEE.>>I WAS JUST INFORMED BY MS. THOMPSON THAT
I WAS THE ONLY ONE THAT HAD THAT AND IS BEING CIRCULATED RIGHT NOW. MR. MARTIN: I WAS PREPARED JUST TO MAKE A
COUPLE OF SHORT COMMENT ON THE OPPORTUNITIES AND CHALLENGES TONIGHT. DO YOU WANT ME TO
FORWARD THOSE AS AN EMAIL, OR I COULD COMMENT. THE FIRST COMMENT WAS, COUPLE OF KEY ITEMS,
AT LEAST TO MY MIND, THAT HAVE CHANGED SINCE 2014. ONE IS, IT IS ABOUT TIME FOR A REVIEW
OF OUR EDUCATIONAL MASTER PLAN AND OUR FACILITY MASTER PLAN. BOTH OF THOSE ARE SOMEWHAT IN
THE WORKS AND BOTH ARE SENSITIVE TO THE NEW SUPERINTENDENT. IT SEEMS TO ME THAT WOULD
BE A WONDERFUL OPPORTUNITY FOR THE NEW SUPERINTENDENT TO KNOW THAT WE ARE SLOWING SOME OF THAT DOWN
AND WAITING FOR HIM OR HER TO ARRIVE. THE SECOND MAJOR CHANGE FROM 2014, AT LEAST TO
MY MIND, WHICH HAS BEEN ALLUDED TO PREVIOUSLY TONIGHT, IS THE SATELLITE CENTER. THEY ARE
EACH UNIQUE, AND THEY ARE EACH BECOMING MORE CRITICAL TO THE CENTER OF OUR MISSION TO NOT
ONLY REACH STUDENTS WHERE THEY ARE, BUT TO ALSO MAINTAIN THE STABILITY OF THE CAMPUS,
AND I THINK IT IS IMPORTANT THAT WE MISSIONHIGHLIGHT OUR EMPHASIS MOVING FORWARD IN THOSE RELATIONSHIPS
WITH SATELLITE CENTERS.>>I WILL FOLLOW UP ON THAT.>>SO WHAT YOU SEE HERE MY FIRST ATTEMPT TO
SYNTHESIZE THE CHALLENGES AND OPPORTUNITIES IN THE CURRENT BROCHURE OR JOB DESCRIPTION,
AND BEGIN TO MAKE SOME CHANGES. AGAIN, IF YOU CAN WORK THROUGH YOUR SUBCOMMITTEE, THEY
CAN LET ME KNOW IF THIS IS ON TRACK, OR WE NEED TO LOOK AT ANOTHER WAY OF TRYING TO SYNTHESIZE
WHAT HAS BEEN EXPECTED.>>SANDER, HAVE WE RECEIVED WHAT YOU HAVE
UP THERE YET?>>HAVE YOU RECEIVED IT? NO, I GUESS YOU HAVE
NOT.>>IT IS IN OUR PACKET.>>OK, GOOD.>>THOSE ARE THE OLD VERSIONS.>>BEEN NO, YOU DO NOT HAVE THIS YET, SO I
WILL GET THIS TO YOU. BUT THANK YOU.>>CAN I JUST ADDRESSED TO LINDA — I’M SORRY.
TO LINDA, RATHER THAN, WE DON’T WANT THIS DOCUMENT TO BE A LAUNDRY LIST, BUT I WOULD
LOVE TO SEE WORKFORCE DEVELOPMENT MENTIONED HERE.>>WE ACTUALLY MENTIONED IT IN THE EI.>>IS THE VERY LAST BULLET, IT’S MENTIONED,
EXPANDING OUTREACH TO THE PASADENA COMMUNITY TO ENSURE EDUCATIONAL PATHWAYS, TO MEET — FOUR
A CULTURALLY AND ETHICALLY DIVERSE POPULATION. I THINK THERE IS ONE EARLIER RELATED TO BUSINESS
AND INDUSTRY, BUT I HAVE WRITTEN THAT NOTE AND IT WILL BE INCLUDED.>>THE OTHER THING I WOULD LIKE TO — BE I
JUST WANTED TO ADD, ONE OF THE THINGS THAT THE SUBCOMMITTEE RECOMMENDED WAS THAT WE TRY
TO EXTEND OUTREACH MAYBE TO AN ONLINE SURVEY. I DON’T KNOW IF THAT IS SOMETHING — AS LONG
AS WERE ABLE TO COME UP WITH A LIST OF QUESTIONS THAT WE THE TRUSTEES CAN IDENTIFY KEY GROUPS
THAT WE WANT THAT SENT TO FOR INPUT. I DON’T KNOW IF THAT IS VIABLE. I DID TALK WITH THE
DIRECTOR OF STRATEGIC COMMUNICATIONS RELATED TO THAT, AND I’M NOT QUITE SURE HOW VIABLE
IT IS, BUT WE WILL PURSUE THE POSSIBILITY.>>IT WAS SOMETHING THAT WAS DONE IN TWO OF
MY 12, SO IT WAS VERY HELPFUL TO HAVE THAT COMMUNITY INPUT.>>I WILL FOLLOW-UP ON THAT. MAYBE YOU CAN
GIVE ME THE NAME OF THE SUPERINTENDENT TO CONTACT, BECAUSE THAT WAS THE QUESTION, HOW
WILL WE GET THE SURVEY TO INDIVIDUALS TO RESPOND BACK, OTHER THAN JUST A GENERAL ADVERTISEMENT,
IF YOU WILL.>>ADJUSTER CLARIFY, THE BOARD MIRRORS IN
THE SUPERINTENDENT THEN IDENTIFY KEY CONSTITUENTS FOR THAT SURVEY TO BE SENT TO. SO IT WAS NOT
JUST A BLAST OUT TO EVERYBODY, IT WAS KEY CONSTITUENTS WHO ARE INVOLVED IN THE EDUCATIONAL
OUTCOMES FOR OUR COMMUNITY.>>THAT ALONE IS HELPFUL. THANK YOU.>>I WOULD LIKE TO FOLLOW-UP ON THAT. I AM
ASSUMING, AND MAYBE IT IS NOT THE SURVEY, BUT IF SOMEONE CANNOT MAKE THE MEETING BUT
WANTS TO MAKE COMMENT, I ASSUME THERE IS SOME GENERIC BOARD THROUGH OUR WEBPAGE WHERE ANY
MEMBER OF THE COMMUNITY CAN COMMENT, EVEN IF THEY CANNOT ATTEND THE MEETING. I’M ASSUMING
THAT, LOOKING FOR REASSURANCE.>>I DO NOT KNOW IF THAT IS AVAILABLE ON THE
WEBSITE. IT’S NOT SOMETHING I’VE COME ACROSS, BUT IT DOESN’T MEAN THAT IT DOES NOT EXIST.>>I FELT ONE OF THE BENEFITS OF THE SURVEY,
AND MAYBE IF IT WAS ATTACHED IN A PLAY FOR ANYONE COULD FIND IT THAT IS INTERESTED , IT
DOES PROVIDE AN OPPORTUNITY TO REACH OUT TO THOSE THAT IN ESSENCE, EVERYONE, THAT IS NOT
LIMITED TO BEING IN A PHYSICAL PLACE AT A CERTAIN TIME.>>I’M GOING TO AS THE DIRECTOR TO HAVE A
— FROM THE FIRST PAGE OF THE WEBSITE, TO LINK RACKLEY TO PRESIDENTIAL SEARCH AND YOU
CAN PUT THE REQUEST FOR INFORMATION, YOU CAN PUT ANYTHING THERE, BUT THERE WILL BE A LINK
ON THE VERY FIRST PAGE WHEN YOU GET TO THE WEBSITE, THERE WILL BE A LITTLE THING THERE
THAT SAYS PRESIDENTIAL SEARCH, AND THAT WILL INCLUDE EVERYTHING. IS THAT SOMETHING THAT
WILL HELP, DO YOU THINK?>>I THINK IT WILL BE VERY HELPFUL, JUST CREATE
A MAILBOX OR SOMETHING WHERE THEY CAN COLLECT INFORMATION THAT MS. TORONTO WILL HAVE ACCESS
TO COME AND SHE CAN ACCESS IT WHENEVER SHE WANTS —
THAT MS. SDERRANO CAN ACCESS.>>I WOULD ASSUME THERE WILL BE STAFF NECESSARY
TO SUPPORT THAT WEBPAGE AND MS. SERRA SEE DON’T HAVE TO BE WORRIED ABOUT THAT. NO MS. SERRANO: THERE IS A GREAT NEED FOR
STAFF SUPPORT AND CERTAINLY THAT WILL BE AN AREA –>>SO YOU ARE — THERE ARE ASSURANCES IT YOU
WILL GET ALL THE SUPPORT YOU NEED FOR THAT.>>WE WILL PROVIDE THE NECESSARY SUPPORT TO
HELP FACILITATE WHATEVER IT IS THAT YOU WOULD WANT US TO DO.>>AND AGAIN, I WANT TO AGAIN INDICATE THAT
THE DIRECTOR OF STRATEGIC COMMUNICATIONS — THERE WASN’T ANYTHING HE SAID HE COULD NOT DO. [LAUGHTER]>>IT IS TRUE, ALEX CAN DO ANYTHING.>>THAT IS TRUE.>>SO I LEFT THERE A HAPPY PERSON. DO. [LAUGHTER]>>I PUSHED MY BUTTONS IN RESPONSE TO ONE
THING THAT TRUSTEE MARTIN SAID, JUST FOR CLARIFICATION, YOU SAID IF SOMEONE COULD NOT ATTEND THE MEETING,
THEY CAN STILL PARTICIPATE. THE ONLY THING I WANT TO STRESS IS THE SCREENING COMMITTEE
IS GOING TO BE LOOKING AT APPLICATIONS AND RESUMES THAT ARE STRICTLY CONFIDENTIAL, AND
THE ONLY — ONLY THE FINALISTS NAMES WILL BE –>>I WAS NOT REFERRING TO THE SCREENING COMMITTEE
MEETINGS. THE ROSEMEAD — THE COMMUNITY MEETING. I SHOULD HAVE BEEN CLEARER. THREE WAS THE
WRONG NUMBER.>>I WAS THE ONE TO SHARE THAT WHAT I DO WANT
TO INCORPORATE INTO THE JOB ANNOUNCEMENT REALLY RELATES TO THE MISSION AND VALUES OF THE INSTITUTION.
I THINK IT IS IMPORTANT THAT APPLICANTS UNDERSTAND AND THE MISSION AND VALUES THAT YOU AS A BOARD
HAVE ADOPTED TOWARD THE INSTITUTION. SO I WANT YOU TO KNOW THAT WHILE YOU DON’T HAVE
A FINAL COPY TODAY, IT IS CERTAINLY ON MY RADAR. IT IS BEING DEVELOPED. I HAVE COLLECTED
A LOT OF INFORMATION AND I’M STILL PROCESSING IT. AND YOU WILL HAVE A JOB DESCRIPTION, AGAIN,
I KNOW THAT THE TARGET HAS TO BE THE FIRST TWO WEEKS OF JANUARY AND NO LATER COME OTHERWISE
WE WILL BE OFF SCHEDULE, AND I REALLY DON’T WANT TO BE OFF SCHEDULE. OK, SO THEN, MOVING
ON — I KNOW I MESSED IT UP. SO ACTUALLY WE HAVE GONE THROUGH EACH OF THE DOCUMENTS. SO
WITH REGARD TO WHERE WE ARE, I HAVE CERTAINLY HEARD THE COMMENTS THAT HAVE BEEN MADE. I
WANT YOU TO — I WOULD BE REMISS IF I DID NOT SAY AT THIS TIME THAT IN THE ABSENCE OF
A VICE PRESIDENT OF HUMAN RESOURCES, THAT THERE HAVE BEEN A LOT OF INDIVIDUALS THAT
HAVE HELPED TO FACILITATE THE WORK THAT NEEDS TO TAKE PLACE ON THIS CAMPUS, AND IN HUMAN
RESOURCES. YURI PEREZ, I’M AT WITH HER YESTERDAY. WE HAVE TALKED ABOUT ALEX, AND HE HAS BEEN
INCREDIBLE. MARY THOMPSON IS AN ANGEL, AND I WANT TO RECOGNIZE HER FOR HER WORK.>>THERE’S NOTHING SHE CANNOT DO, EITHER.>>AND SHE DOES IT PLEASANTLY. SHE IS JUST
REMARKABLE. AND I HAVE TO SAY, I CANNOT REMEMBER O.C.’S LAST NAME, BUT ANOTHER PERSON THAT
WITHOUT YOUR HELP, THIS WOULD NOT BE HAPPENING. I KNOW THERE IS A FOURTH PERSON, AND MY NAME
JUST WENT BLANK. LEON A FLASH BYRD. — YOU HAVE A MARVELOUS STAFF, AND EVERYONE HAS BEEN
WILLING TO DO FAR MORE THAN WOULD BE EXPECTED OF THEM. SO I THANK THEM AND I RECOGNIZE EACH
OF THESE INDIVIDUALS SPECIFICALLY BY THE WORK THEY HAVE DONE AND THE SUPPORT THEY HAVE GIVEN.
ANY QUESTIONS?>>I JUST WANTED TO ADD A COMMENT. I KNOW
THE STAFF IS REALLY GREAT, BUT I THINK THAT EVEN IN SUBCOMMITTEE, WE RECOGNIZE THAT WITHOUT
HR, THIS IS A HUGE BURDEN ON OUR STAFF. WE MADE A RECOMMENDATION TO MS. SERRANO THAT
SHE FINDS SOMEONE LIKE THE NICHOLSON, WHEN WE WENT TO THE LAST RODEO WITH FOUND IT HELPFUL
TO HAVE A STRONG HR PERSON WHO IS VERY FAMILIAR WITH THE PRESIDENTIAL SEARCH PROCEDURES, BECAUSE
IT DOES TAKE A LOT OF TIME , SO WE RECOMMENDED THAT SHE LOOKED FOR SUPPORT AND THEN MAKE
SOME RECOMMENDATIONS AND THEN WORK ON HOW WE MIGHT HAVE SOME ADDITIONAL RESOURCES BECAUSE
IT IS A VERY FAST TIMELINE, IT JUST REQUIRES A LOT OF RESEARCH, WHICH CAN BE A VERY TAXING
BURDEN ON OUR CURRENT STAFF.>>SO TO FACILITATE THAT, AND I WILL TALK
WITH DR. VERDUN TOMORROW OR TONIGHT, I DID NOT KNOW IF WE COULD FACILITATE A CONTRACT
THAT QUICKLY, BUT IF NOT, HE TOO IS WILLING TO FACILITATE A CONTRACT. MAKES WE CAN FACILITATE
THAT CONTRACT FOR YOU.>>THAT WILL BE WONDERFUL, BECAUSE I DO HAVE
A RESUME, A NAME. I TALKED WITH THE INDIVIDUAL AND I THINK WITH THE WORK THAT REMAINS, HE
HAS ALL THE SKILLS NECESSARY TO PROVIDE THAT LEVEL OF SUPPORT.>>THIS IS A SUGGESTION, IN ADDITION TO THE
JOB DESCRIPTION AND THE OPPORTUNITIES AND CHALLENGES, I THINK WE SHOULD PRODUCE A DOCUMENT
THAT MANY OF YOUR CANDIDATES ARE GOING TO KNOW ABOUT BC AND OUR COMMUNITY AND HOW FABULOUS
THEY ARE, BUT SOME WON’T, AND I THINK WE NEED TO PRODUCE A DOCUMENT THAT TALKS ABOUT WHAT
A SPECIAL PLACE PCC IS. OUR INDUSTRY, OUR EXCELLENCE, ONE OF THE TOP 10 IN THE NATION,
OUR PROMINENT ALUMS, AND ALSO THE COMMUNITY RESIDE IN, THE CULTURAL AND EDUCATIONAL INSTITUTIONS,
MAKING PASADENA AND THE WEST AND GABRIEL VALLEY OF FOR SCIENCE AND TECHNOLOGY, CALTECH ART
CENTER. WE HAVE ABOUT 1800 NONPROFIT CITY OF PASADENA ALONE PLUS THE REST OF THE INSTITUTIONS
IN THE DISTRICT. IT REALLY IS QUITE AN OUTSTANDING INSTITUTION AND THE ENVIRONMENT, AND WE WANT
TO COMMUNICATE THAT TO THE PROSPECTIVE CANDIDATES.>>ABSOLUTELY. I WILL MAKE SURE, AND MAYBE
WE CAN HAVE LINKS TO, FOR EXAMPLE, THE CHAMBER OF COMMERCE, THE ECONOMIC DEVELOPMENT CORPORATION
, OTHER AGENCIES, AND THEY TYPICALLY CONDUCT THOSE TYPE OF SEARCH IS BECAUSE THEY WANT
TO KNOW WHAT THE COMMUNITY IS LIKE. BUT THANK YOU FOR HIGHLIGHTING THAT.>>IF WE ARE LINING UP OUR PUBLIC MEETING
FOR THE NIGHT AND THE 11TH AND THERE IS NOT A LOT IT MIGHT BE HELPFUL FOR A QUICK DISCUSSION
ON TRUSTEE INVOLVEMENT IN THOSE COMMUNITY MEETINGS, MAYBE THE WORD I AM THINKING IS
TACIT INVOLVEMENT IN COMMUNITY MEETINGS. THERE HAVE BEEN ONE OR TWO TRUSTEES SIGNED UP FOR
EACH OF THOSE MEETINGS. EACH OF THOSE LOCATIONS, THEY TACITLY SAT THERE AND LISTENED TO THE
COMMUNITY INPUT. THE COMMUNITY NEW THAT THERE WAS A TRUSTEE PRESENT. I DID NOT KNOW IF YOU
FIND THAT HELPFUL OR NOT. IF WE DO THINK, AFTER COMMENT, THAT IT IS HELPFUL, MAYBE IT
IS THE COMMITTEE, OR LINDA, OR SOMEBODY, ONCE WE KNOW THE TIME AND LOCATIONS, TO MAKE SURE
WE HAVE ONE OR TWO AVAILABLE.>>I DO THINK IT IS HELPFUL. THE PEOPLE WHO
SHOW UP ON TO KNOW THAT THE COLLEGE IS RECEIVING THE INPUT. IT MAKES A GREAT IMPRESSION ON
THE COMMUNITY WHEN A TRUSTEE IS PRESENT AT A MEETING. THEY KNOW THAT THE TRUSTEES ARE
HEARING IT FIRSTHAND, AND NOT THROUGH ANOTHER REPRESENTATIVE. IF THERE IS A TRUSTEE THAT
IS ABLE TO ATTEND ONE OR MORE OF THESE MEETINGS, I WOULD ENCOURAGE IT.>>WHEN WE GET THE MEETING, THE TRUSTEES CONSENT
UP.>>WE JUST CANNOT GET TOO MANY OF YOU AT ONE
MEETING.>>JUST TWO.>>ANY OTHER QUESTIONS OR SUGGESTIONS?>>I SEE NONE. THANK YOU FOR YOUR PRESENTATION
THIS EVENING.>>THANK YOU FOR THE OPPORTUNITY. IT HAS BEEN
A WONDERFUL GROUP OF PEOPLE TO WORK WITH. I AM CONVINCED THAT YOU WILL HAVE A NUMBER
OF APPLICANTS. WE WILL BE ABLE TO FIND AN EXCEPTIONAL PRESIDENT AMONG THEM. HAVE A GOOD
EVENING.>>THANK YOU FOR BEING HERE TODAY. WE RETURNED
TO ITEM NUMBER THREE, WHICH IS THE ADOPTION OF 577.>>WE HAVE THE RESOLUTION. AS YOU WILL NOTICE,
IT CALLS FOR A STATEMENT OF NO MORE THAN 200 WORDS, AND ALSO THE PAYMENT IS MADE DIRECTLY
BY THE CANDIDATE. WE HAVE TRIED TO CONTACT THE COUNTY OFFICE. THERE IS A DIFFERENCE BETWEEN
200 AND 400 WORDS. THE ANSWER WE GOT WAS THAT THE INFORMATION WAS FOR THE CANDIDATES WHEN
THEY DO THEIR FILING. THE RESOLUTION HAS ALWAYS BEEN 200 WORDS.>>A SIGNIFICANT NUMBER OF DOLLARS FOR EACH
WORD.>>I BELIEVE — IS THE RESOLUTION FOR 200?
APPROVAL?>>SECOND.>>WE HAVE A MOTION AND A SECOND. PLEASE VOTE.
UNANIMOUS.>>PUSH THE GREEN BUTTON, HOYT.>>A UNANIMOUS VOTE.>>WE JUST AGREED THAT HE WILL PAY FOR EVERYONE’S
CANDIDATE STATEMENT.>>APPROVE AND ADOPT THE 2018 AND 2019 AND
2020 ACADEMIC CALENDARS.>>YOU WILL NOTICE THAT WE ARE PRESENTING
THE CALENDAR FOR TWO YEARS. THAT IS SO NECESSARY BECAUSE STARTING FALL OF 2018, WE WILL BE
PRESENTING OUR STUDENTS YEARS. WITH A TWO-YEAR SCHEDULING. THEREFORE, WE NEEDED THE TWO-YEAR
ACADEMIC CALENDARS PRESENTED TO THE BOARD FOR APPROVAL. I WANT TO THINK THE DOCTOR FOR
THE WORK HE HAS DONE IN LEADING THE COMMITTEE.>>THANK YOU. I APPRECIATE THAT. WE ARE DOING
THIS SO IT WILL BE POSSIBLE FOR US TO POST A TWO-YEAR ACADEMIC SCHEDULE. OBVIOUSLY, WE
NEEDED THE START AND END DATES FOR THIS. I WANT TO POINT OUT THAT ONE CONSIDERABLE DIFFERENCE
IN THE TWO CALENDARS THAN WHAT WE HAVE SEEN BEFORE IS THAT — NOT A DIFFERENCE, BUT WE
HAVE TWO FLEX DAYS. ONE OF THOSE FLEX DAYS IS ACTUALLY OCCURRING ON THE FRIDAY BEFORE
THE START OF CLASSES ON MONDAY. THAT IS A SIGNIFICANT CHANGE TO PREVIOUS ACADEMIC CALENDARS
THAT WE HAVE HAD. I WILL ANSWER ANY OTHER QUESTIONS THE BOARD MEMBERS MIGHT HAVE OF
THE — ABOUT THE CALENDARS.>>IF THERE IS ONE THING I HAVE LEARNED, IT
IS DO NOT ASK QUESTIONS ABOUT THE CALENDAR.>>THAT IS VERY WISE.>>I WILL ENTERTAIN A MOTION TO APPROVE.>>SECOND.>>PLEASE VOTE. THE VOTE IS UNANIMOUS, INCLUDING
THE STUDENT TRUSTEE. OUR FIFTH ITEM IS ALONE THE SCHEDULE –>>AS YOU MENTIONED, THIS IS JUST TO MAKE
THE NECESSARY ADJUSTMENT TO REFLECT THE CHANGE IN MINIMUM WAGE. WE ARE RECOMMENDING THAT
THE BOARD APPROVE.>>MOVED TO APPROVE.>>SECOND.>>DO YOU HAVE A COMMENT?>>I WAS WONDERING, IS THERE AN IMPACT ON
THE SALARY SCHEDULE FOR THOSE WHO ARE ABOVE THE NEW MINIMUM ALREADY? DO WE HAVE AN ADJUSTMENT
TO KEEP A SEPARATION SCALE? DO WE MOVE UP THE BOTTOM? DO WE MAINTAIN?>>MY UNDERSTANDING IS THERE IS NONE.>>THAT IS CORRECT. THERE IS NOT AN IMPACT
ON THE DIFFERENT LEVELS ABOVE.>>OK, THANK YOU.>>PLEASE VOTE. THE VOTE IS UNANIMOUS, INCLUDING
THE STUDENT TRUSTEE. THE FINAL ACTION ITEM TODAY, NUMBER SIX IS MODIFICATIONS TO THE
CREDIT AND NONCREDIT CURRICULUM.>>I WANT TO THANK THE DOCTOR FOR ALL THE
HARD WORK ON GETTING THIS THROUGH. THEY HAD A SESSION LAST WEEK. THESE TELL US A LITTLE
BIT ABOUT THE ADDITIONS, DELETIONS AND MODIFICATIONS.>>THE LAST TWO MEETINGS, CURRICULUM AND INSTRUCTION
COMMITTEE , YOU HAVE BEFORE YOU A PACKET OF CURRICULUM CHANGES, ADDITIONS AND DELETIONS.
I TRIED TO PROVIDE FOR YOU — THE DOCTOR HAD ASKED FOR ANNEX — AN EXECUTIVE SUMMARY OF
IT. I GAVE THE ONE THAT WAS FOUR PAGES IN LENGTH. BECAUSE OF THE AMOUNT OF CURRICULUM,
THERE IS NOT A LOT OF DETAIL IN THAT. WHAT IS ALSO ATTACHED IS WHAT LIZ WOOD PUT TOGETHER
FOR YOU. THE TABLE OF CONTENTS LISTS THE SPECIFIC COURSES AND PROGRAMS ADDED, MODIFIED OR DELETED.
I ASKED FOR A CHANGE IN THAT BECAUSE WHAT WAS PROVIDED TO THE BOARD WERE BASICALLY NUMBERS.
ACCOUNTING 101 WITHOUT TELL YOU THE TITLE OF THAT , THE TITLE WAS ADDED. THERE IS AN
OVER 100 PAGE DOCUMENT THAT GIVES YOU SPECIFIC INFORMATION ON EACH OF THOSE CHANGES TO THE
CURRICULUM AND THE RATIONALE ATTACHED. I WILL GLADLY ANSWER ANY QUESTIONS YOU HAVE ON THIS.
THERE IS A LOT OF INFORMATION HERE. I APOLOGIZE TO YOU THAT YOU GET SUCH A BULK. REALIZE THAT
A CHANGE THAT HAS BEEN MADE SINCE MY ARRIVAL IS THAT USED TO HAVE QUITE A BULK OF THIS
BECAUSE THERE WERE ONLY TWO MEETINGS THAT YOU APPROVED CURRICULUM AT. THIS ONE AND THE
ONE AT THE END OF JUNE. IT IS BECAUSE YOU HAVE BEEN APPROVING CURRICULUM AT ALL OF YOUR
MEETINGS THAT THE BULK OF THIS IS ACTUALLY LAST-MINUTE. THE COMMITTEE WILL BE EVALUATING
THE PROCESS AGAIN TO TRY TO SPREAD THIS OUT OVER THE YEAR, AS OPPOSED TO HAVING SUCH A
LARGE BULK OF CURRICULUM IN DECEMBER AND JUNE.>>WHEN YOU SEE INNOVATIONS, THAT MEANS YOU
ARE DOING YOUR JOB.>>LET ME SAY THANK YOU FOR THE BREAKDOWN
YOU HAVE IN THE ACRONYMS. THAT HELPS US REALLY UNDERSTAND WHAT WE ARE READING. FOR ME, THAT
WAS VERY IMPORTANT. I HAD ASKED A QUESTION EARLIER ON MONDAY, REGARDING THE DELETION
OF THE NINE UNIT IN COSMETOLOGY. I WAS TOLD IT WAS REPLACED BY TWO. I WAS HAVING PROBLEMS
PROCESSING THAT. IF YOU COULD HELP ME?>>I CAN WALK YOU THROUGH THAT. IF YOU HAVE
THE DOCUMENT IN FRONT OF YOU, THE COURSES THAT SHE IS REFERRING TO OUR — ARE FOUR PAGES
THEN. WHAT IS LISTED THERE ARE THE DELETIONS OF NINE COSMETOLOGY COURSES. BASICALLY, WHAT
IS HAPPENING HERE IS THESE COURSES ARE BEING DELETED. WE HAVE NOT OFFERED THESE COURSES
FOR A NUMBER OF YEARS BECAUSE A FEW YEARS BACK, YOU APPROVED CHANGES — OR ADDITIONS
TO THE CURRICULUM THAT INCLUDED COSMETOLOGY 100 THROUGH COSMETOLOGY 109. THOSE COURSES,
BASICALLY, WERE ADDED TO SOLVE A PROBLEM THAT WAS OCCURRING WITH THE COURSES THAT WERE BEING
DELETED IN SCHEDULING. IT MADE IT DIFFICULT FOR STUDENTS TO WORK THEIR LIFE AROUND THE
COSMETOLOGY SCHEDULE BECAUSE THESE COURSES THAT WERE BEING DELETED WERE ALONG OUR COURSES
THAT REQUIRE THEM TO BE THERE FOR LONG DAYS THROUGHOUT THE WEEK. THE CURRICULUM THAT IS
NOW OFFERED, COSMETOLOGY 100 THROUGH COSMETOLOGY 109 WAS TO ADJUST THE CURRICULUM SO IT WAS
EASIER TO SCHEDULE AND EASIER FOR STUDENTS TO COMPLETE THE CURRICULUM. THOSE COURSES
ARE OFFERED OVER A THREE SESSION. WE WILL HAVE STUDENTS WHO START IN THE FALL. THEY
WILL TAKE THREE COURSES IN THE FALL AND THREE COURSES IN THE SPRING. THEY WILL FINISH THE
SEQUENCE WITH THREE COURSES IN THE SUMMER. THEY WILL START WITH SPRING TO SUMMER TO FALL,
AND ANOTHER WOULD START SUMMER, FALL AND FINISH IN THE SPRING. THESE DELETIONS ARE BASICALLY
COURSES THAT HAVE BEEN ON THE BOOKS. WE HAVE NOT OFFERED THEM THE PAST COUPLE OF YEARS.
WE DO NOT DELETE COURSES AT THE SAME TIME THAT WE ADD NEIL GORSUCH BECAUSE WE WANT — NEIL
GORSUCH — NEW COURSES. WE WANT TO MAKE SURE IT IS
WORKING BEFORE WE DELETE THE COURSES THAT HAVE BEEN REPLACED. IT HAS BEEN A COUPLE YEARS
SINCE WE OFFERED COSMETOLOGY 114 A THROUGH 117 BE. WE HAVE A VIABLE COSMETOLOGY PROGRAM
THAT IS DOING WELL. IT IS FILLED TO CAPACITY. THE ONLY WAY TO GROW THE PROGRAM IS TO MODIFY
THE FACILITIES. AT THIS POINT, WE ARE NOT PROPOSING THAT AND DOING THAT. THE COSMETOLOGY
PROGRAM IS DOING QUITE WELL AT THE COMMUNITY CENTER.>>I UNDERSTAND. THANK YOU FOR YOUR ANSWER.
WHAT YOU DESCRIBE, DOES THIS TO HOLD THE LIMITATION THAT COULD ACTUALLY TAKE ADVANTAGE OF THE
PROGRAM?>>OUR PROGRAM RIGHT NOW IS PROVIDING THE
MAXIMUM ENROLLMENT THAT CAN BE PROVIDED BY THE FACILITY IS THAT WE HAVE. THE ONLY WAY
WE COULD EXPAND IS TO EXPAND THE FACILITIES. THE ENROLLMENT — WE ARE SERVING AS MANY STUDENTS
AS WE CAN WITH THE WAY THIS CURRICULUM ALLOWS. THE WAY THIS CURRICULUM IS SET UP ALLOWS US
TO BE AS EFFICIENT AS OUR FACILITIES ALLOW. THE ONLY WAY WE COULD SERVE MORE STUDENTS
IS TO EXPAND THE FACILITY.>>INTERESTING.>>I WAS CURIOUS AS TO WHERE — LET’S SAY
STUDENTS DROPPING THE COURSE BECAUSE OF LOW STUDENT TURNOUT.>>YOU MEAN WHAT DROVE THE CHANGE? I MIGHT
HAVE TO RELY ON THE DOCTOR TO JOIN IN BECAUSE I WAS NOT HERE. BUT MY UNDERSTANDING IS IS
THAT STUDENTS — WITH THAT CURRICULUM THAT WAS BEING DELETED, PART OF IT WAS ENROLLMENT,
BUT ALSO STUDENTS TALKING TO FACULTY AND ADMINISTRATORS ABOUT THE FACT THAT THEY COULD NOT PARTICIPATE
BECAUSE OF THE WAY IT WAS SCHEDULED.>>WHAT I WOULD ADD IS IT WAS A QUESTION ABOUT
STUDENT RETENTION AND COMPLETION. THE WAY THE PROGRAM IS OFFERED NOW, THE NEW CURRICULUM
HAS ALLOWED THEM TO BRING ON A THIRD-QUARTER PORT — THIRD QUARTER. THIS NEW CURRICULUM
HAS ALLOWED US TO INCREASE THE NUMBER OF STUDENTS WHO ARE ENROLLED IN COSMETOLOGY.>>THANK YOU.>>YOU ARE WELCOME.>>WE HAVE A MOTION ON THE FLOOR. PLEASE VOTE.
MOTION PASSES UNANIMOUSLY WITH THE STUDENT TRUSTEE IN THE AFFIRMATIVE. RETURN TO INFORMATION
ITEMS. — WE TURN TO INFORMATION ITEMS.>>I CONGRATULATE ALL THE NEW BOARD OFFICES.
I– WE WANT TO THANK THE DOCTOR FOR YOUR ONE YEAR PRESIDENCY OF THE BOARD OF TRUSTEES.
WE WILL RECOGNIZE YOUR LEADERSHIP AT THE GENERAL MEETING. YOU WILL ALSO NOTICE THAT IN YOUR
PACKAGE WE HAVE INCLUDED THE ANNUAL REPORT OF PASADENA CITY COLLEGE. I WANT TO THANK
THE TEAM FOR PUTTING THIS REPORT TOGETHER. I HAVE SHARED THE REPORT WITH THE CEOS OF
THE COMMUNITY COLLEGE DISTRICT ACROSS THE STATE. THEY WERE ALL VERY IMPRESSED BY THE
QUALITY OF THE WORK. AS YOU KNOW, WE ARE CURRENTLY IN ROLLING STUDENTS FOR WINTER AND SPRING.
ENROLLMENT, COMPARED TO LAST YEAR, ARE PRETTY SOLID. WE ARE MAINTAINING NUMBERS FOR WINTER
AND SPRING. IN BOTH CASES, WE ARE ABOVE 35 TO 15 ABOVE ENROLLMENT. LAST WEEK, I WAS JOINED
BY SEVERAL REPRESENTATIVES OF THE COLLEGE, AS WE WERE RECOGNIZED FOR OUR WORK TO GRANT
ASSOCIATE DEGREES. FOR THE SECOND YEAR IN A ROW, WE WERE IN THE TOP FIVE. THIS YEAR,
WE TIED FOR SECOND PLACE. THIS IS A FEET THAT MANY — FEAT THAT NOT TOO MANY COLLEGES HAVE
ACHIEVED. THERE WAS AN IMPRESSIVE SCENE AT THE ROSE BOWL AS AMERICA’S STADIUM UNVEILED
A NEW STATUE OF JACKIE ROBINSON, WEARING HIS FOOTBALL JERSEY FROM PASADENA JUNIOR COLLEGE.
THE EVENT WAS A BLOCK PARTY FEATURING STUDENTS FROM CLEVELAND ELEMENTARY, THE HIGH SCHOOL
AND OUR MARCHING BAND, CHEER SQUAD AND OTHERS FROM PCC. EACH OF THESE PASADENA INSTITUTIONS
WERE PLACES JACKIE ROBINSON HAD ATTENDED AS A YOUNG MAN. ABOUT 100 MEMBERS OF JACKIE’S
FAMILY WERE PRESENT. THE EVENT WAS IN SEED BY — LAST FRIDAY MARKED OUR ANNUAL SCHOLARSHIP
CELEBRATION WITH THE FOUNDATION DISTRIBUTING $238,000 IN SCHOLARSHIPS TO STUDENTS. IT WAS
A FANTASTIC EVENT THAT BROUGHT TOGETHER OUR DONORS AND STUDENTS TO CELEBRATE PCC. I WOULD
LIKE TO THANK ALL THE TRUSTEES THAT WERE PRESENT AT THE EVENT. YESTERDAY, WE HAD THE NURSING
CEREMONY FOR THE GRADUATING CLASS OF REGISTERED NURSES. A WONDERFUL EVENT ATTENDED BY FACULTY
AND STAFF. WE ARE PROUD OF THE WORK WE ARE DOING HERE. THE COLLEGE ALSO HOSTED THE FLAGSHIP
OF ACTIVITIES, AN EVENING OF REFLECTION BY PCC ALUMNI. THE AUDITORIUM WAS ALIVE WITH
A PERFORMANCE AT THE TOWN STREET THEATER. MEMBERS OF MR. BUTLER’S FAMILY WERE ON HAND
AND SHARED THAT THEY WERE VERY PROUD, GRATEFUL AND HONORED TO TAKE PART. THIS WAS A HUGE
SUCCESS FOR OUR STUDENTS AND OUR COMMUNITY. I WANT TO RECOGNIZE ENGLISH PROFESSOR BRIAN
KENNEDY FOR THE PUBLICATION OF HIS BOOK “MIXING MEMORY AND DESIRE: WHITE LITERATURE CANNOT
FORGET THE GREAT WAR.” DR. KENNEDY’S WORK EXAMINES FICTION WRITTEN ABOUT WORLD WAR I
TO UNDERSTAND WHY A WAR TO END ALL WARS CONTINUES TO STIMULATE OUR COLLECTIVE CONSCIENCE. HE
IS PLEASED TO REPORT THAT HE WAS ABLE TO COMPLETE A SUBSTANTIAL PORTION OF HIS WORK DURING HIS
RECENT SABBATICAL. THE MILITARY TIMES RANKING CAME OUT. PASADENA CITY COLLEGE IS NUMBER
ONE IN CALIFORNIA. THE NUMBER TWO SCHOOL IS NOR FOLK. WHEN YOU SAW WHEN YOU CAME INTO
THE BUILDING, WE ARE ADVERTISING A WINTER 2018 INTERCESSION ON CAMPUS AND AROUND OUR
REGION. YOU CAN SEE RIGHT FRONT OF THIS BUILDING AND IN FRONT OF THE LIBRARY THE WORK THAT
WE ARE DOING TO PROMOTE OUR SESSION. AUDIENCES BLOCKED THE THEATERS TO SEE THE NEW STAR WARS
MOVIE THIS HOLIDAY SEASON, THEY WILL BE TREATED TO A SPECIAL ADVERTISEMENT BEFORE THE MOVIE,
SHOWING OFF OUR CAMPUS AND WINTER TERM. I’M ASSUMING MANY OF YOU HAVE SEEN THAT ALREADY.
PCC WILL BE LIVING IN THE SAME CINEMATIC UNIVERSE AS LUKE SKYWALKER THIS DECEMBER. MAY THE FORCE
BE WITH US.>>WHERE WILL THOSE ADS BE SHOWING?>>ALL THE THEATERS IN THIS AREA IN ARCADIA,
PASADENA. WE WOULD LIKE FOR YOU TO GO TO THE MOVIE THEATER IS AND SEE ALL THAT. — THEATERS
AND SEE ALL THAT. I WANT TO WISH YOU ALL HAPPY HOLIDAYS. THANK YOU AGAIN.>>THIS IS THE TIME FOR ANNOUNCEMENTS. WE
WILL BEGIN WITH CLASSIFIED SENATE.>>GOOD EVENING. IT WAS SUCCESSFUL ON TUESDAY.
WE COLLECTED 205 TICKETS, WHICH RAISED JUST A LITTLE BIT OVER $200. THESE PROCEEDS WILL
BE APPLIED TO OUR SCHOLARSHIP FUND. THE SENATE WOULD LIKE TO THANK PAT FOR VOLUNTEERING HER
TIME, RESOURCES AND EXPERTISE AND CREATIVITY TO MAKE THIS A SUCCESS. WE HELD OUR PROFESSIONAL
DEVELOPMENT WORKSHOP ON DECEMBER 7. WE HAD 41 RSVPS AND 30 STAFF MEMBERS ATTENDED. THIS
WAS A 50% INCREASE FROM OUR LAST WORKSHOP. OUR NEXT WORKSHOP WILL BE CONDUCTED IN THE
SPRING AND FOCUS ON ACCLIMATING CLASSIFIED PROFESSIONALS IN VARIOUS AREAS OF THE CAMPUS
COMMUNITY. THE SENATE WILL BE SENDING OUT A SURVEY RELATIVELY SOON TO GATHER FEEDBACK
AND DATA TO ENSURE THAT THE WORKSHOP AND SPEAKERS ARE IN LINE WITH THE REQUEST AND NEEDS OF
OUR CAMPUS COMMUNITY. THIS DATA WILL ALSO BE USED TO PLAN AND EXECUTE A SUCCESSFUL FLEX
DAY IN THE SPRING. FINALLY, WE ARE IN THE PRELIMINARY STAGES OF PLANNING FOR CLASSIFIED
DAYS. THE CLASSIFIED SENATE IS PLANNING TO COORDINATE THREE DAYS THIS YEAR TO BETTER
ACCOMMODATE CLASSIFIED AND INCREASE PARTICIPATION.>>MANAGEMENT?>>WE HAVE NO REPORT, BUT WE WILL BE BACK
IN JANUARY.>>STUDENT TRUSTEE?>>I WOULD LIKE TO START BY CONGRATULATING
THE OFFICES THAT WERE ELECTED TO THEIR POSITIONS THIS EVENING. THE ASSOCIATED STUDENTS VICE

STUDENT EMPOWERMENT RALLY TO GIVE THEM THE OPPORTUNITY TO SHARE THEIR HONEST EXPERIENCES.
THERE WERE DIFFERENT HEADERS GEARED TOWARDS UNDOCUMENTED AND LGBT STUDENTS AND STUDENTS
OF COLOR. REMINDING THEM THAT WE ARE ALL HERE TO ACHIEVE A BETTER FUTURE. HAPPY HOLIDAYS
AND THIS CONCLUDES MY REPORT.>>MISS BROWN?>>I REALLY MUST SAY THAT I AM SO EXCITED
THAT PCC IS NOW ENGAGED IN OUTREACH. WHAT THE DOCTOR SAID JUST MELTED MY SOUL. I WAS
MAD SEEING ALL THESE COLLEGES ADVERTISING EVERYWHERE. NO PCC. NOW WE ARE OUT THERE.
I AM EXCITED ABOUT THAT.>>THE FOUNDATION HAS PLANS TO GET A COUPLE
BILLBOARDS OUT IN OLD PASADENA. WE WILL ALSO BE AT THE LINDLEY. WE WILL HAVE SOME CARDS
UP THERE. THE OTHER THING I SHOULD MENTION, I HOPE IT IS APPROPRIATE. I AM PRESIDENT OF
ONE OF THE POLITICAL CLUBS AND WE HAD TO MEMBERS OF THE ASSOCIATED STUDENTS COME TO HEAR A
PRESENTATION I A GROUP DOING OUTREACH FOR VOTER REGISTRATION. I KNOW THAT THEY CAME
BACK WITH A REPORT AND RECOMMENDATIONS ABOUT THAT. WE WILL HAVE AN INTERESTING YEAR NEXT
YEAR. I THINK IT WOULD BE GREAT IF OUR STUDENTS COULD ENGAGE AND REGISTER, AND HELP TO REGISTER
OTHERS IN THE VOTING PROCESS.>>I ATTENDED THE UNVEILING OF THE STATUE
OF JACKIE ROBINSON AT THE ROSE BOWL. THE STATUE WITH A FINISH WILL MAKE IT A BEGIN IN THE
SUN HITS IT. — BEACON IN THE — WHEN THE SUN HITS IT. HE HAS THE NUMBER 55, THE NUMBER

TIME TO TIME THEIR PATIENCE AND INDULGENCE.>>DR. STARLING.>>I ALSO ATTENDED THE SCHOLARSHIP AWARDS

THERE RECEIVING SCHOLARSHIP AWARDS. CONGRATULATIONS TO BOTH OF YOU. LAST MONDAY, WE HAD OUR DECEMBER
