                  This is a meeting called by the CTA, including all consultation council
                  members, except those from the System Office, to discuss the role and
                  organization of Consultation Council. There are concerns about the
                  degradation of the process used in Consultation Council.
              e. Basic Skills Initiative
             Train the trainer event occurred in San Francisco on April 18, 2007. Regional

             Basic Skills Initiative Report (poppy copy) before attending their regional
             training. Refer to the CIO website for a schedule of training sessions.
          f. Results of Online Survey re. Regions Priorities(Attachment)
             Results were mixed, but of primary interest is that CIOs receive appropriate
             information so that they are in a position to provide the executive group the
             necessary feedback.
             It was recommended that regional representatives not fulfilling their
             responsibility be asked to do so and that an orientation be provided to newly
             elected regional representatives starting at noon on July 17 .
          g. CCCCIO Priorities (Attachment)
             Recommendations for 2007-08 priorities were obtained from CIOs present at
             the fall conference. Recommendations were categorized under five areas:
             regional/statewide CCCCIO issues; curriculum and instruction issues;
             collaboration; administrative issues; providing resources, advocacy and
             information repository. The opportunity to develop training opportunities for
             new CIOs was also discussed.
          h. Assessment (Attachment) The Consultation Digest submitted by Mark Wade
             Lieu, on behalf of the Academic Senate for California Community Colleges,
             ―Board of Governors Motion on Assessment‖, was reviewed. The legality of
             the proposed single assessment was also considered, given the MALDEF
             lawsuit from the nineties.

V.       Title 5 Revisions—Response from Regional Groups
         Concerns were related to:
        1) Ensuring that the limitations on course repetition do not apply to noncredit courses.
        2) Associate degree limitation on current transfer degrees.

        Regional training sessions for the basic skills initiative have been scheduled. More
        copies of the research report will be obtained and purchased.

        May revise budget includes 33.1 M for basic skills; minimum of $100,000 per college
        based on basic skills FTES. It designates funding for certificate completion and
        includes age limitations. The goal is to have this language removed. $10M has been
        allocated to Matriculation.

        About 13 proposed changes to Title 5 will be revisited or delayed based on feedback
        received. These items are related to noncredit, associate degree requirements,
        offering of courses outside the college boundaries, etc. Publication of the proposed
        Curriculum Handbook will be delayed.

        Teacher preparation grants for 06-07 are available ($2.1 M) for colleges that were not
        funded in the grant competition this year. More money will be available from Career
        & Technical Education to fund 07-08 proposals.

        Letter of Intent for MESA will be published soon to advertise a 60 day RFA process
        for establishment of a one additional MESA program.

        faculty and two articulation officers from each system will review concerns presented
        by CSU’s lack of approval of CC courses in the lDTP approval process. CID project
        (comparable to establishing a CAN system) has been awarded to the Los Rios CCD
        for $511,000.

XIII.   Liaison Reports 2:15 P.M.
          a. ACCE – Lynda Lee
          Many items of interest to ACCE have already been discussed before. Some of the
          items of interest have been postponed in the Title 5 discussions.
          b. CCL – Jim Matthews
          The Learning Resources Association is being eliminated this year. The CCL is
          considering how they will fill the gap created.
          The organization is working proactively on the profession’s review of student
          learning outcomes and associated evidence.
          Major retirement trend has been evidenced in the profession and there is a need
          for the training for future leaders.
          c. CCCAOE – Mollie Smith
            The organization is concerned about Title 5 proposed language on districting rights
            of the colleges. Fall conference will focus on basic skills in career technical
            education. Leadership track will also be included.

            AB 900-Strengthening of CTE training programs for the corrections system is being
            reviewed for future action.

            d. TETAC-Jim Mathews
               TETAC’s and Tech 3’s role will be established by the System Office. The TTIP
               budget has no COLA associated with it and this has caused problems.
               Priorities established for this year are emerging technology training; wireless
               hot spots on campus; digital market place; system wide data base for
               assessment; course management system inter- operability standards; CENIC
               link to off site centers; accreditation wizard; GIS database; e-portfolio for
               students; statewide purchase of library databases.

   XIV.   Budget Report-Eric Skinner, Vice Chancellor, Fiscal Planning-2:45
          Special allocations include $33M for basic skills; $50M for nursing equipment; $50M
          for CTE equipment and minor remodeling. There is a $53 drop in the May revise from
          January’s budget, but this is still more than the 06-07 budget for community colleges.
          (The CC budget increased it’s per pupil spending by .08 % as compared to 4.4% for
          K-12.) Unused funds from 06-07 will be redirected. The System Office would like to
          have funds redirected on a one-time only basis.

   XV.    Adjournment 3:00 P.M.

Next CCCCIO Executive Board Meeting is Tuesday, July 17, 2007 for new executive board
member training (noon-4:00 p.m.) and Wednesday, July 18, 2007.
