Whereas, Regulations currently treat science and career technical education (CTE) lab space equivalently in terms of state definitions of capacity load space allocations;
Whereas, Title 5 language has not changed in this regard in more than 40 years, while the nature of both science and CTE has evolved; and
Whereas, The current allocation formula inappropriately combines the different needs of science and CTE programs under the same formula;
Resolved, That the Academic Senate for California Community Colleges study the possibility of recommending changes to Title 5 with regard to the lab space allocation formulas to meet the distinctive needs of science and career technical education (CTE) programs.
MSC Disposition: Local Senates
The Title 5 regulations that affect space allocation were changed.
