Status Report

Not sure how much we have done on this.  I do not recall much.

Whereas, The physical condition of our college facilities has a direct impact on the ability to execute our educational master plans as they apply to items 4, 5, 7 and 10 of the academic and professional matters as defined by Title 5 regulations, and is an area of review within Accrediting Commission for Community and Junior Colleges Standard III.B-Physical Resources;

Whereas, The state has not funded facility maintenance and infrastructure repair since 2008, which has resulted in a significant deterioration of older community college campuses, and future state funding of community college facilities is based on a complex set of formulas with requirements and conditions that few faculty understand; and

Whereas, Implementation of a 21st century educational master plan will require the adoption of new technology that directly impacts student learning, and knowledge of the facilities planning process is critical to developing the capacity of our facilities to accommodate new technology;

Resolved, That the Academic Senate for California Community Colleges shall include regular, periodic plenary and institute breakout sessions focusing on facilities planning and maintenance issues; and

Resolved, That the Academic Senate for California Community Colleges assert that facilities planning and facilities maintenance have a direct impact on instruction.
