Whereas the FW grade has the potential to disqualify economically disadvantaged students from financial aid, and
Whereas the Academic Senate for California Community Colleges has supported an ever increasing access to community colleges, and
Whereas many questions have not been answered on student financial aid concerning the FW grade,
Resolved that the Academic Senate postpone forwarding the FW grade proposal to the Board of Governors until the effect of the FW grade on financial aid is clarified, and
Resolved that Academic Senate reaffirm its support of open access to California community colleges thus giving students the opportunity for economic and social success.
