I.      CALL TO ORDER
        The meeting was called to order at 2:05 p.m.
        President Gerfen reported no changes to the agenda.

II.     ROLL CALL
        A.   Roll was taken by sign in sheet.

III.    MINUTES – Dana Hester
        A.      Dana called for approval of the minutes of the October 22, 2003 meeting.
                M/S/P

        B.      Tom Gerfen introduced Dr. Linda Spink, President of Los Angeles Harbor
                College and a member of the visiting Accreditation Team.

IV.     SPECIAL REPORTS/PRESENTATIONS
        A.   Budget Report- Pat Lawrence introduced Vice President of Fiscal Services,
             Carol Horton, who then gave an interesting PowerPoint presentation on the
             2003-2004 budget. Salaries are a major part of our budget, and it is an item
             which can’t be cut. This leaves few other areas where reductions can be
             made in the event of State mid-year cuts. In addition, Citrus has 8% unfunded
             FTES which means about 1300 students over cap. The college can no longer
             afford to support these students as a result of the budget crisis taking place in
             the state. Everyone was very attentive and found Carol’s presentation
             informative. She answered a number of questions from the members.

       B.     Curriculum Institute Report – Lin Humphrey
              Tabled until the November 12th meeting due to time limitations.

       C.     FNIC Update – Tom Gerfen handed out copies of an FNIC memo from Dr.
              Thom Armstrong, Vice President of Instruction. Sixteen positions have been
              identified as hiring priorities.

       D.     Physical Emergency Plans – Jim Cope
              Jim outlined emergency response plans which Citrus has in place in the event
              of a number of different disaster scenarios. There were questions and
              comments from the members including the possibility of phones in
              classrooms; faculty with offices away from their dean/associate dean’s offices
              where the flipcharts and emergency manuals are located; the status of the
              crisis team committee which was unilaterally disbanded. In addition, Dorothy
              Hays and others raised the issue of all mental health emergencies being
              referred solely to counseling. This is an issue counseling intends to bring to
              the senate at some future time. Classroom occupancy limits were also
              addressed and Jim was asked to present a workshop on this subject in the
              future.

       E.     Expressive Activities Update- Tom Gerfen
              Tom explained that after approving R-5138 and P-5138 at the last senate
              meeting, the attorney for Citrus College made some further revisions which
              means the senate will need to take a new vote. After reviewing the changes a
              vote was held. Some members did ask that it be determined how and who
              should be notified if there is too much noise outside their classrooms.
              M/S/P

V.     COMMITTEE REPORTS

       A.     Curriculum – Lin Humphrey
              The committee last met on October 28. Lin provided a synopsis of their
              actions taken from the minutes. The next meeting will be on November 11 and
              all are invited to attend.

       B.     Update on Library Name – John Fincher
              The Physical Resource Committee voted to approve a monument-type sign to
              include the words “Hayden Library-Learning Resource Center”. It would be
              located in the flower box immediately to the right of the building’s entrance,
              next to the staircase. A number of senators and members expressed
              dissatisfaction with this saying the building name should have only the word
              “library” in it. John was asked to take the senate’s opinions back to the
              committee.

              Lucinda Over spoke with Jean Malone concerning donation of sick leave to
              Michelle Yount. Faculty and classified cannot donate time, however the Citrus
              College Faculty Association made a monetary donation to the ASO on
              Michelle’s behalf. Linda Swan also spoke with Jean Malone and was informed
              that adjunct faculty is able to donate time to another adjunct faculty member.
              There was some discussion of the Senate making a monetary donation to
              Michelle’s fund. It will be brought up for further discussion at the meeting on
              November 12.

X.       PUBLIC FORUM
         Jo Morrison mentioned that the new state budget director, appointed by Governor-
         elect Schwarzenegger, has a reputation for doing hatchet jobs on community
         colleges’ funding. It was suggested that a great activity for the next flex day would be
         a tour of the new Disney Concert Hall. Marilyn Eng reported a March in March to be
         held in Sacramento in support of community colleges.

SUBJECT:             FNIC Hiring Priorities, 2004 – 2005

The Faculty Needs Identification Committee met on October 13 and on October 29, 2003.
The following sixteen positions were identified as hiring priorities for the 2004-2005
academic year, with two positions as alternates. Given the uncertain budgetary situation,
these recommendations are tentative, and subject to approval and/or modification by the
board of trustees. The human resources department will soon be sending job
announcements to be reviewed by departmental/divisional faculty and managers. These
edited announcements should be forwarded to the appropriate vice president for final
review as soon as possible so they can then be returned to human resources. Thanks!

A large trailer mounted gas powered electric generator is being developed.
There are also plans for emergency power generators to be installed at the campus
center and in facilities yard.

Food & Water-
No Storage other than what is on-hand. Maintaining emergency supplies of this nature
are labor & cost intensive.

The plan is designed to be a living document; it is to be reviewed and updated annually.
Comments and suggestions are welcome.

AB846 becomes law effective 1/1/04. It will prohibit smoking within 20 feet of public building main entrances
and operable windows. Therefore, in an effort to meet this new regulation, ashtrays and urns need to be
moved a minimum of twenty feet from campus building entrances.

While only campus building are regulated as smoke free, some outside areas may need signage indicating
specific “no smoking” areas and “designated smoking areas” in order to accommodate students and staff with
guidance in certain areas. The following is a run down of (I hope) most of the potentially conflicted areas on
the campus - with some potential solutions. Please review and provide me with any comments, suggestions,
or alternative solutions by November17.
Thank you for time and consideration.

EXPRESSIVE ACTIVITIES GUIDELINES

   1. All persons wishing to use any of the college’s Free Speech Areas facilities for
      speech or expressive activities pursuant to this regulation are advised to identify
      themselves to the college Security Office. These persons are requested to
      present to the personnel on duty a brief written statement of the general content
      of the statements they will be making and, if any materials are to be distributed, a
      copy of each piece. Information disclosed pursuant to this paragraph shall be
      used only for the purposes of enforcement of these regulations as they pertain to
      responsibility for the commission of unlawful acts. Materials collected pursuant to
      this regulation are for administrative purposes only, and not for purposes of
      approving access to campus, content of speech, assignment to a particular area
      of campus, or any other purpose resulting in prior restraint. There shall be no
      exercise of discretion by any district personnel associated with collection of
      materials under this paragraph.

    Only those written materials of which Security has received a copy
      may be distributed. Such distribution shall take place only within the geographical
      limits of the Free Speech Areas. Prior to leaving the Area for the day, the user(s)
      must retrieve and remove or properly dispose of their printed materials that have
      been improperly discarded in or around the Area.

   2. Any person, organization or group wishing to distribute more than fifty copies of
      any written material on campus is advised to first provide a copy of such written
      material to the Security Office. Any person, organization or group responsible for
      distributing written materials on campus must retrieve and remove or properly
      dispose of such materials that have been improperly discarded in or around
      campus. If the distributor of written materials fails to clean up litter resulting from
      such distribution, the college will charge the distributor for the costs incurred in the
      cleanup.

   Persons may use the Free Speech Areas to collect signatures on
      proposed ballot measures or other petitions and to register voters. No person
      shall use these Areas for the solicitation of funds by any means, including sales
      and donations, unless he or she is representing an organization registered with
      the California Secretary of State as a nonprofit corporation or is a member of a
      recognized Citrus College club or organization. Any person(s) engaged in a for-
      profit endeavor may arrange to have a presence on campus through the
      bookstore supervisor subject to the existing policies of the bookstore.

 3. No means of amplification, electronic or otherwise, shall be used in
      the Free Speech Areas.

       The use of amplification by persons or groups on campus shall not reach a sound
       level that creates a material disruption to the normal functioning of the college.
       The level at which disruption occurs is recognized as 60 dB inside the classroom
       or campus office where instruction or other college function is taking place If
       sound level complaints occur complaints arise that the sound level of
       expressive activity is disrupting the normal functioning of the college,
       college staff will measure dB levels at the site of the
       complaint. If sound levels exceed 60 dB in an office or classroom from which a
       complaint arises, the persons or group creating the disturbance will be given a
       warning and advised to reduce volume to an acceptable level a level at which
       the normal functioning of the college is not disrupted. If after two warnings
       complaints again arise that the sound level of expressive activity is
       disrupting the normal functioning of the college, and if the sound level of the
       expressive activity continues to exceeds 60 dB a second time, the activity or
       amplification will be terminated.

   . Persons using the Free Speech Areas shall not touch nor impede
      the progress of passersby and shall remain within the geographical limits of the
      Areas while engaged in the exercise of their expression.

   4. Persons or groups engaged in expressive activity shall not commit unlawful acts of
      violence, or incite others to unlawful acts of violence or conduct physically
      incompatible with the peaceful functioning of campus. Nor shall they engage in
      acts of unlawful physical intimidation of students, faculty, staff or visitors;
      unlawfully obstruct ingress to, or egress from, school buildings; or unlawfully
      intrude upon, damage or destroy college property.


   5. Use of the Free Speech Areas shall be limited to the hours of 8:00
      a.m. through 6:00 p.m., Monday through Friday.

   5. Expressive activities may be held at all times the college is open for business. In
      addition, when special events occur in specific venues outside of normal hours of
      operation expressive activities shall be limited to the areas in the immediate
      vicinity of these venues, and be subject to the same limitations as those taking
      place during normal operating hours.

   of any part of the applicable College Policy and/or
       Regulations may result in the violator being removed from and/or being denied
       further access to the College, student discipline, civil and/or criminal prosecution.

          6.       Criminal and/or civil actions taken against Citrus College students as a result of
          their participation in illegal expressive activities shall not preclude action by the college
          under Board Policy P-5139 Standards of Student Conduct.

   In the event that any person(s) request the use of one of the Free
       Speech Areas when such usage would be disruptive to a College special event the
       Student Affairs Administrator may elect to assign said person(s) the use of an
       alternate Area.

 6. 7. The college has identified preferred areas for expressive activities. These may be
       reserved for a one-day period on a first-come, first-served basis through the
       Student Affairs Office no less than three working days prior to the activity.

EXPRESSIVE ACTIVITIES

   1. Citrus College is a non-public forum except for those locations
      designated by the Superintendent/President as Free Speech Areas.

       The Board of Trustees values the free exchange of ideas and expressive activity
       on campus, and seeks to foster and protect the rights of all persons to exercise
       their constitutional rights protected under the First Amendment of the United
       States Constitution and Article I, Section 2 of the California Constitution.
       Nevertheless, the college historically has not converted, and by adoption of this
       policy does not intend to convert, the all facilities maintained and/or owned by the
       college into a public forum or limited public forum. Accordingly, the district
       reserves the right to enact regulations pertaining to restricting the use of its
       facilities for the exercise of free speech and free expression consistent with
       applicable law. Similarly, the district’s commitment to foster and protect the right
       to free speech and free expression and to accommodate such speech and
       expression in facilities maintained and/or owned by the college, extends only to
       speech and expression protected by the federal or state constitution.

   Any and all persons using the College’s Free Speech Areas are to
      ensure that the content of their expression, in any form, is not obscene,
      slanderous, libelous or in violation of copyright laws according to current legal
      standards. Such expression shall not create a clear and present danger of the
      commission of unlawful acts, advocate the violent overthrow of the government,
      violate College lawful regulations, nor substantially disrupt the orderly operations
      of the College.

   2. Expression which is obscene, libelous or slanderous according to
      current legal standards, or which so incites any individuals to create a clear and
      present danger of the commission of unlawful acts on the college premises, or of
      the violation of lawful

       community college regulations, or of the substantial disruption of the orderly
       operation of the college, is prohibited. This prohibition, however, extends only to
       speech or expression which falls outside of the bounds of protection of the First
       Amendment.


   3. Persons may distribute printed materials within the Free Speech
      Area pursuant to this policy and pertinent board regulations provided such
      materials conform to the above standards of expression and provided that the
      means of distribution and disposal of materials comply with the appropriate college
      regulations.

   regulations regarding use of the College’s Free Speech Areas
      shall be applied equitably and fairly. No restrictions other than those cited above
      shall be placed on subject matter, topics or viewpoints expressed in these Areas.

  4.   This policy and all implementing regulations regarding speech or
       other expressive activity shall be applied equitably and fairly. Except for the
       limitations described in paragraph 2 above, the district shall place no restrictions
       on any person, organization or group on the basis of content.

                                                           October 2003

Whereas, “In accordance with Title 5 and the Education Code, Citrus
Community College District encourages shared governance” as stated
in Board Policy P-1010, and

Whereas, as stated in Board Regulation R-1010, “Issues to which
the Board will rely primarily on the Academic Senate
Recommendations” include: Educational program development,
standards or policies regarding student preparation and success,
processes for instructional and student services program review,
degree and certificate requirements, and curriculum, and

Whereas, there is a documented history within the Academic Senate
at Citrus College that decisions to cut programs and course offerings
(vocational, degree, transfer) have been made without faculty input,
and

Whereas, the reductions in the state budget are having an
unprecedented impact on the ease of transfer of community college
students into the CSU and UC systems, and

Whereas, students have expressed concern that it will take
additional years to graduate and/or transfer as a result of reduced
course offerings, therefore,

Resolved, the Academic Senate of Citrus College wishes to
empower its faculty in the spirit of board policy, to assume its rightful
role in recommending the most appropriate course offerings that will
allow students to reach their general education and major preparatory
goals in a timely manner, and

Resolved, the Academic Senate of Citrus College supports effective
decision-making through the cooperative efforts of student services
and instructional faculty in making determinations based on current
occupational and transfer information.

           5 Requisite Approval




                                                                        Page 28 of 31
6.   2003 Productivity & Efficiency Analysis Report
     At the last meeting of the Board of Trustees, (Oct 21) you were given a written
     report and a PowerPoint presentation on 2003 Productivity & Efficiency Analysis
     Report by the Maas Companies.

     I want to go on record that the Academic Senate states “the report is ‘grossly
                     a used from Fall ’02 is not the same data as reported to the
     Chancellor’s Office for Fall ’02 hence discrepancies result in unfounded
     conclusions and unsupported recommendations.”

        It would seem that productivity and efficiency should be defined by the
        company. Appropriate citations should be used that refer to the state
        ‘standard’ as described throughout the document.

        The WSCH figures in Table 1 do not reflect the figures reported to the
        Chancellor’s Office. The WSCH for Fall ’02 is different. What set of figures
        were used and why the discrepancy?

     They have not taken into account:
        o Sound educational pedagogy
        o Legal occupancy per classroom
               § (State Fire Marshall requirement)
        o Title V - 5-7025
               § (Classroom space / workstation)
        o Correct data comparison
        o Correct year data
        o Endless opinionated, unsubstantiated babbling
        o Cut CAP and generate money?
        o Lack of senate involvement
        o Incorrect data modeling
        o Classroom capacity and room assignment

     This cites only a few errors in the report.

        The Academic Senate was not involved with input to the report or allowed to
        review the findings before it was sent to you and it did not go through the
        steering committee before it was presented.

        The Academic Senate is more then willing to meet with the Board of Trustees
        to discuss this report and point out the many, many false assumptions and
        errors in data, and the conclusions it reaches. We welcome a frank and open
        discussion of whatever the hypothesis is and the reason for commissioning
        such a report.

7.   Vocational VIP Tour (Oct 24)
        It was a pleasure to be invited to participate in the Legislative VIP tour of 4
        vocational areas of the campus. It only helps the programs when the
        Academic Senate is included.




                                                                             Page 29 of 31

                      Citrus College Career/Transfer Center
               What has been done with teacher preparation to date?
                                  November2003

1. Career/Transfer Center began offering a Career in Teaching Conference in February
2001. The idea for a Center for Careers in Teaching is patterned after the model at
Santa Ana College. The first conferences offered day and evening workshops and local
high school students were invited to attend. Vocational education arranged for local high
school students to be bused to Citrus. For the evening conference, we invited teacher
aides from our local districts. The evening conference has continued to be offered each
February with full to capacity attendance (200+students). Justina Rivadeneyra (2003)
and Rafael Herrera (2002) chaired conference.

2. Arranged for four-year feeder schools to have liberal studies programs meet with
students in the Career/Transfer Center monthly. CSU Fullerton and Cal Poly Pomona
come regularly. University of La Verne has come less frequently. (Lucinda Over ~
contact).

3. Provided consultants from CSU Fullerton to train Citrus College staff about new
requirements. Lucinda Over arranged for this training last year.

5. Educational advisor, Rafael Herrera worked with the articulation officer, Jeanne
Howard this June to update liberal studies major preparation sheets with CSU Long
Beach, CSU Los Angeles, CSU Fullerton, Cal Poly Pomona, CSU San Bernardino
and UC Riverside. We also have an articulation agreement in liberal studies with
University of La Verne.

6. Justina Rivadeneyra provided training to the Para-professional Teacher Training
Program October 2003 for Azusa teacher aides (20 in attendance). Laura Villegas, in
the Counseling and Advisement Center is the liaison between Azusa Unified schools
and CSU Los Angeles. Para-professionals attend school in a cohort and graduate
together. The first cohort of students 1995-98 had 33 students and the current cohort has
30.

7. Lucinda Over and Jeanne Howard arranged for cross enrollment class, LS 201
Introduction to teaching, through Cal Poly Pomona to be taught at Citrus College, fall
2003.     Discussions have already begun regarding improving communication and
enrollment strategies. Next class will probably be fall 2004. (Lucinda Over ~ contact)

8. In order to address the NCLB requirements, new courses will need to be developed.
To that end, Lucinda Over has been collecting course outlines for community college
courses that address the No Child Left Behind requirements (Earth Sc 115- Santa Ana,
EDUC 13- PCC-Foundations in teacher preparation and field experience, English 10 at
PCC, Introduction to Linguistics).

9. The college is exploring the possibility of pursuing a cooperative grant on teacher
preparation. The committee submitted ideas. Lucinda Over provided an overview of
NCLB legislation, group ideas and contact names at meeting Pacific Oaks 10-21-2003.
Pacific Oaks and University of La Verne qualify as HSI institutions. Cal Poly Pomona
may qualify in November 2003.
