Whereas the Carver Model of policy governance relies on streamlining and consolidating governing board agenda items to reduce agendas, and
Whereas many present agenda items would thus be delegated to district employees and committees, and
Whereas the public would then be forced to resort to cumbersome public record searches to discover information presently available on the board docket, and
Whereas these actions would seriously impede the free flow of information;
Resolved that the Academic Senate urge local boards to reject any form of governance that places undue burden on the public to discover information to which it is entitled under the Brown Act , Freedom of Information Act and other open meeting laws.
