2010 course scheduling priorities l.jpg
2010 Course Scheduling Priorities

  • Focus on Transfer, Career Technical, and Basic Skills

  • Avoid Recreational/Avocational Course Offerings

  • Reduce Physical Education Offering


Noncredit physical education dance l.jpg
Noncredit Physical Education/Dance

  • Title 5, Section 58130:

    • No Apportionment for Noncredit Classes in “Dancing and Recreational Physical Education”

    • May still be approved as noncredit courses and offered, but not claimed for apportionment

  • Impact on Noncredit Older Adult Programs

  • Conversion to Fee-Based Offerings


Course withdrawal and repetition l.jpg
Course Withdrawal and Repetition

  • It’s not over yet—the saga continues…

    • Long-awaited Guidelines to 2007-2008 Title 5 Changes Being Released with Cautionary Message

    • Pressure from LAO/Department of Finance for More Restriction (Student Access Issues)

      • Perhaps Restriction on Total Enrollments for Apportionment

      • Review/Reconsider “Activity” Course Repetition

Course Withdrawal and Repetition

  • It’s not over yet—the saga continues…

    • What To Do Now

      • Probably Best To Do Nothing Unless Current Local Policy Less Restrictive Than Permitted by Regulations Now in Effect


Local approval of stand alone courses l.jpg
Local Approval of Stand-Alone Courses

  • AB 1943—”Sunset” of Local Approval in 2012

  • Determining Course of Action

    • Legislation?

    • Other Means of Extending “Sunset” Date?

  • Report to Legislature Being Prepared

    • Supporting Data—Based Upon CRCC

    • Possible Data Issues

      • Are Your College’s CB 24 Values Correct?


Course coding issues l.jpg
Course Coding Issues

  • SACC Review of CB (MIS Curriculum and Instruction) Codes

    • Inspired by Recent Experience with CB 21

    • Recommendations for Changes Being Made to Chancellor’s Office MIS

      • Deletion of Seemingly Archaic Codes

      • Clarification of Definitions/Explanations

      • Updating of Possible Values


Course coding issues11 l.jpg
Course Coding Issues

  • Discussing Pros and Cons of Moving from T.O.P (Taxonomy of Programs) to C.I.P. (Classification of Instructional Programs) Course Classification Codes

    • T.O.P. Codes Only Used in California

    • C.I.P. – Federal Classification Systems Used in Other States

    • Existing Code “Crosswalk” Because Chancellor’s Office Must Use C.I.P Codes for Perkins/Other Federal Reporting


Noncredit title 5 regulations l.jpg
Noncredit Title 5 Regulations

  • Proposed Revisions to Title 5, Sections 55150, 55151, 55152, 55153, and 55155 Currently Being Reviewed Various Noncredit Groups

  • Development of Program and Course Approval Handbook Module 3 Dependent Upon Status of Proposed Title 5 Changes


Basic skills 30 unit limit l.jpg
Basic Skills 30-Unit Limit

  • Considered Revision of Title 5, Section 55035

    • Based Upon “Uncodified Statute”

    • Would Therefore Require Legislation

    • Decided Seeking Legislative Change Unwise in Current Environment

  • Local Waiver Process Permitted Under Current Regulations for Students Making Progress


Mission appropriateness of courses l.jpg
Mission Appropriateness of Courses

  • A program or course must

    • Be the appropriate level for community colleges; that is, not beyond the associate degree or the first two years of college

    • Address a valid transfer, career technical, or basic skills purpose

    • At this time, not address civic education or lifelong learning

    • Not be primarily avocational or recreational


Mission appropriateness of courses15 l.jpg
Mission Appropriateness of Courses

  • Current Concern—Courses Offered for Faculty Professional Development

    • Clearly Beyond Associate Degree Level

    • Therefore Not Eligible for Apportionment


Reasonable limitations on enrollment l.jpg
“Reasonable Limitations on Enrollment”

  • Recent Legal Opinion:

    • If a community college decides to limit enrollment to a cohort of students, a majority of the course sections offered need to be left for open enrollment.

    • In other words…

      • If one section is limited to a cohort students, there must be at least two sections open to all students.


Skills prerequisite validation l.jpg
Skills Prerequisite Validation

  • Proposed Revision of Title 5, Section 55003 to Allow for Validation of Skills Prerequisites through Content Review

    • Academic Senate Task Force (with CIO and CSSO representation)—Recommendation of Further Revisions to Address Concerns/Questions from July 2010 BOG Meeting

    • Recommended Changes Reviewed by SACC at October 22 Meeting


Training resources l.jpg
Training Resources

  • Program and Course Approval Handbook Update

    • Pending Development of Module 3 (Noncredit)

    • Currently Planned for 2011

  • Matrix on Types of Instruction

    • Electronic Resource Being Developed by SACC
