Resolved, That the Academic Senate for California Community Colleges recommend to the Board of Governors that the associate degree minimum requirement for English in Title 5 55805.5, be changed to read "an English course at the level of the course typically known as 1A, either English 1A or another English course at the same level and with the same rigor, approved locally." MSC Disposition: Local Senates, Consultation Council, Chancellor, Board of Governors

Status Report: 

The committee was prepared to work with the President as requested to develop strategy and process for implementation of Title 5 changes, but they were not needed. Next year they might be called upon to assist local senates in developing alternative courses (but that is a new resolution).
