Primary responsibility for this task was referred to Local Senates Committee as part of their ongoing contact with local senates; reminders have also been incorporated in breakouts and the planned 2003 Curriculum Institute.

Whereas, Title 5 55002 (Standards and Criteria for Courses and Classes) requires that, for both degree applicable and nondegree-applicable credit courses, the course outline of record be made available to each instructor;

Whereas, There is continuing anecdotal evidence that many part-time temporary faculty members begin teaching in California community colleges without being provided a copy of the course outline of record for their assignments and often continue to teach for many years without knowing that course outlines exist; and
