Resolved that the Academic Senate for California Community Colleges support the intent of the following passage from the September 10, 1986, Proposed Final Report: California Community College Reform prepared by the Joint Committee for Review of the Master Plan for Higher Education: 55. That the Board of Governors create and the Legislature fund a Special Instructional Fund (SIF) to be disbursed by the Board of Governors to local districts which make significant progress toward improving the ratio of full-time and part-time faculty, and in meeting affirmative action goals. Such progress shall be defined by the hiring of probationary full-time faculty to replace part-time temporary positions, (and, thus, improvement is not based on the simple expedient of laying off part-time faculty). Funds from the SIF shall be used for the development of new programs which require additional "start-up" monies.
