Whereas, With the implementation of AB 705 (Irwin, 2017), the scheduling of pre-transfer math courses, such as intermediate algebra, has significantly reduced over the past three years, with some colleges completely eliminating offerings in response to a 2022 required plan from the California Community College Chancellor's Office that asks colleges to justify, with data, the scheduling of pre-transfer math courses;
Whereas, California State University and University of California articulation requirements require a prerequisite or corequisite of intermediate algebra skills for the transfer of courses such as biology; and
Whereas, C-ID also recommends prerequisites of intermediate algebra skills for course alignment;
Resolved, That the Academic Senate for California Community Colleges work with the California Community College Chancellor's Office and the academic senates of the California State University and University of California to provide continued guidance for the articulation of courses that require requisites below transfer-level math.
