27. It was moved by Dr. Hughlett and seconded by Mr. Arthur to approve Management Reclassifications in
Accordance with 2013-14 Management Team Reclassification Procedures, as follows:
a. Mark Logan: Reclassification to Director, Purchasing and Contract Administration (Purchasing
Department), Grade 32, Step 5 ($8,856.00), from Director of Purchasing, Grade 29, Step 8 ($8,640),
effective July 1, 2014
b. Graciela Vasquez: Reclassification to Associate Dean, Adult Education and Diversity Programs
(Adult Education and Diversity Programs Department), Grade 35, Step 4 ($9,456.00), from Director,
Adult Education and Diversity Programs, Grade 29, Step 8 (Y-Rated $9,128), effective July 1, 2014
Dr. Salazar asked Dr. Gularte whether other constituent groups are undergoing the reclassification process and if
so, to provide a status update. She stated that she would have preferred that all the reclassification items for all
constituent groups be presented together. She also asked if all employees who are approved for reclassification
will have a retroactive date of July 1, 2014.
Dr. Gularte stated that consultant Bill Ewing assisted the college with the reclassification process for management
and classified employees. She stated that a meeting with CSEA is scheduled for early next week and that she
hopes that after that meeting, the process will move forward and hopefully be completed in October. Dr. Gularte
confirmed that recommended classified reclassifications will have a retroactive date of July 1, 2014.
Dr. Salazar inquired whether the classified reclassification process is the only one pending, and Dr. Gularte
confirmed this was correct. Dr. Salazar asked whether the corresponding cost for classified reclassifications is
included in the adopted budget, and Dr. El Fattal confirmed that the maximum possible cost has been budgeted.
The motion was approved through a roll call vote [7 ayes, 0 noes, 0 abstentions] (student advisory vote: aye).
INFORMATION ITEMS
28. As information, the board received the August 25, 2014 College Coordinating Committee Minutes.
Ms. Perez thanked the Coordinating Committee for its continued work and noted that the Board Goals
Subcommittee has recommended revisions to Board Policy 2745 to clarify the board self-evaluation
process and to address Accreditation recommendations and deficiencies. She thanked the Coordinating
Committee for providing feedback regarding the proposed revisions and agreed that alternative methods
to solicit public feedback need to be identified to provide community members who are unable to attend
board meetings with additional avenues to give input.
Mr. Drayer added that general legal counsel did not attend the August 25 Coordinating Committee meeting
which addresses another ACCJC recommendation. Also, since board meetings are now televised, there
is a greater opportunity for the community to give feedback and learn about what is going on at the college.
29. As information, the board received the college’s 2014-2015 Strategic Plan.

ADMINISTRATIVE MATTERS
30. It was moved by Mr. Drayer and seconded by Dr. Salazar to adopt Resolution No. 14-05 Declaring Design
and Development of Facilities to be LEED Certified, as attached.
Mr. Drayer stated that he is very proud of his and Ms. Perez’s work to increase awareness of sustainability
and that this will reduce utility costs, save the environment, and that brighter LED lights will reduce crime
on campus. He also stated that he was inspired when his city denied his solar panels when he tried to be
more green, and that he purchased his own hybrid vehicle after his friend Mayor Eric Garcetti began
driving a hybrid.
Ms. Perez thanked everybody for their support and especially thanked Mr. Aiello, ASCC, David C. Moore,
and Dr. El Fattal for their efforts to establish sustainability initiatives on campus. She stated that the
college plans to be an environmental champion and that this is a great step in that direction. From a student
perspective, she stated that there is a need for a better bicycle, walking, and mass transit system because
not everybody can afford vehicles but they can walk or use a bicycle.
Mr. Arthur stated that there are various levels of LEED certification and expressed his concern regarding
increased costs for new buildings with a construction cost in excess of $5 million. He clarified that he is
not opposed to the concept of LEED certification or sustainability, but he is concerned with the cost-
benefit analysis as construction projects move forward because the board has a fiduciary responsibility to
taxpayers.
Mr. Drayer stated that he wrote the college’s green sustainability goal with the intent of being cost
effective so it is implied that college staff will provide the most cost effective plan for any project. He
stated that he wrote this goal with taxpayer interests in mind.
The motion was approved through a roll call vote [7 ayes, 0 noes, 0 abstentions] (student advisory vote:
aye).
31. It was moved by Dr. Hughlett and seconded by Mr. Arthur to approve Board Goal #1 Student Success,
as follows:
1. Student Success
a. Support college initiatives to provide courses for first-time or first-year Cerritos College students
and increased student access to meet general education requirements.
b. Support initiatives to increase student completion rates from prior year.
c. Support initiatives to improve communication with students to support student success efforts.
The motion was approved through a roll call vote [7 ayes, 0 noes, 0 abstentions] (student advisory vote:
aye).
32. It was moved by Mr. Arthur and seconded by Dr. Hughlett to appoint the revised list of members to the
Community Task Force, as attached.
Cerritos College Board of Trustees Meeting Minutes September 17, 2014 Page 5 of 13
Back to Board AgendaBack to Board Agenda
Ms. Avalos stated that this item was revised to add two additional members to the task force. She stated
the application process will remain open until all positions are filled. She announced the following names
for the record:
Mazen Nabulsi, Trustee Area 1
Bob Snow, Trustee Area 3
Esther Rico Jones, Trustee Area 3
Olga Rios, Trustee Area 4
Victor C. Thompson, Trustee Area 4
Juan Serrano, Trustee Area 4
Remedios Manzanilla, Trustee Area 5
Barry Yousling, Trustee Area 6
Zurich Lewis, Trustee Area 7
Ms. Avalos asked Mr. Smith whether there is a conflict with Zurich Lewis, who is a candidate for the
upcoming election for Trustee Area 7. Mr. Smith replied that there would only be a conflict if he wins
the election and that there is no conflict at this time. Dr. Lacy stated that the task force will meet for
discussion purposes only and in an advisory capacity, and Mr. Smith agreed. Ms. Avalos lay emphasis
on the importance of being clear and responsible to the public regarding any conflicts of interest. Dr.
Salazar asked if the first meeting has been scheduled and Dr. Lacy replied that a meeting has not been
scheduled since the membership has not been approved.
The motion was approved through a roll call vote [7 ayes, 0 noes, 0 abstentions] (student advisory vote:
aye).
33. It was moved by Mr. Arthur and seconded by Dr. Hughlett to approve the 2014-15 Adopted Budget as
amended.
Dr. Lacy stated that staff received a recommendation to amend the budget to allocate $100,000 in Vintage
funds for unmet student success needs in the EOPS department. Dr. El Fattal provided an overview of the
2014-15 adoption budget. He stated it is balanced and that three campuswide budget forums were held to
provide constituents and the community with opportunities to ask questions and provide feedback.
Ms. Perez thanked Dr. El Fattal, Dr. Lacy, and Ali Delawalla for their hard work and stated that many
people do not realize how much time and effort is spent to prepare a college budget. She noted that the
campus forums seemed to be well attended and that good comments were received.
Dr. Namala stated that he has requested, on multiple occasions, that the college transfer the balance of
unrestricted general fund dollars in Fund 41.0 back to the general fund to accurately reflect the college’s
actual undesignated reserves. General funds were transferred into that fund in 2007-08 to fund capital
outlay requests and for internal borrowing when facing cash deferrals from the state. He stated that there
are no deferrals at this time and that he hopes the board will move the funds back for transparency. Dr.
El Fattal stated that Fund 41.0 is in the budget and is also clearly listed on the summary page of the general
fund. He added that although there are no cash deferrals at this time, well-known economic principles
indicate that we are overdue for another recession. He also stated that Prop 30 is scheduled to sunset in
2016, which will cost the college $2.5 million. Other items of concern include part-time employee sick
pay and unfunded STRS liabilities. The 2014-15 expenditure for STRS is $250,000; however, beginning
Cerritos College Board of Trustees Meeting Minutes September 17, 2014 Page 6 of 13
Back to Board AgendaBack to Board Agenda
2020-21 and every year thereafter, the annual expenditure will be approximately $4.3 million. Mr. Drayer
asked for clarification regarding whether the STRS liability will continue or end after 2020-21. Dr. El
Fattal stated that the STRS liability will be an annual, ongoing cost unless there is a change in legislation.
Ms. Perez requested that the timeframe to develop a plan to address the ongoing STRS rate increase be
agendized for a future meeting.
Dr. Namala reiterated his comments that in order for the budget to be truly transparent, the college must
transfer the balance of reserves in Fund 41.0 back to the general fund. Dr. El Fattal stated that the fund is
very transparent within the budget and that a board meeting is not the place to hold this discussion. Dr.
Namala disagreed. Ms. Avalos suggested that Dr. Namala and Dr. El Fattal schedule a meeting this week
to continue their conversation.
The motion was approved through a roll call vote [7 ayes, 0 noes, 0 abstentions] (student advisory vote:
aye).
34. It was moved by Dr. Hughlett and seconded by Mr. Drayer to approve the Foundation for California
Community Colleges (FCCC) for the Annual License Renewal for the Microsoft Campus Agreement, as
attached.
The motion was approved through a roll call vote [7 ayes, 0 noes, 0 abstentions] (student advisory vote:

Selection Process for the President/Superintendent Position, as attached.
The motion was approved through a roll call vote [7 ayes, 0 noes, 0 abstentions] (student advisory vote:
aye).

40. Approve Change Order No. 3 [Owner Added Scope], (Bid No. 1112-02, Category 08), G & G Door
Products, Inc., Liberal Arts/DSPS Building, as attached.
The motion was approved through a roll call vote [7 ayes, 0 noes, 0 abstentions] (student advisory vote: aye).
41. It was moved by Ms. Avalos and seconded by Mr. Arthur to appoint Three Trustees and Designate a
Chairperson to serve on the President/Superintendent Search Advisory Committee.
Ms. Avalos asked if any trustees would like to volunteer to serve on the President/Superintendent Search
Advisory Committee. Mr. Arthur stated that at the September 3 regular meeting, he suggested that trustees
who have never served on a presidential search committee be appointed. Ms. Avalos asked Trustees
Drayer, Liu, Perez, and Salazar if they would like to serve. After discussion regarding job-related and
personal time commitments, and also upcoming elections, Ms. Avalos asked Dr. Hernandez to provide
anticipated meeting dates and times. Dr. Hernandez stated that it is important that all committee members
be present from the beginning to the end of the process for the committee to move forward. The first
meeting is the most important and each meeting will be scheduled for at least two hours. The first meeting
is tentatively scheduled for October 15 in the early afternoon. He reiterated that it is imperative that
committee members attend all meetings and be dedicated to the process as the selection of a
president/superintendent is the most important decision for the college.
Dr. Salazar asked for a proposed timeline of events to provide a better picture for the board. Dr. Hernandez
stated that the recruitment process cannot begin until the committee meets and discusses the job
description and announcement. Prior to that first meeting, focus group meetings must be completed so
that every constituent group and community members has an opportunity to provide input, and the
unedited feedback will be forwarded to the search committee. The committee will meet and draft a profile
to forward to the board for approval. Thereafter, the recruitment process may begin. It is anticipated that
all-day, off-site interviews will be conducted in March 2015 to ensure that the selected candidate is able
to begin in July.
After discussion, the board agreed to appoint Trustees Salazar, Perez, and Liu to the committee and
requested that efforts be made to avoid scheduling meetings during time conflicts.
Ms. Avalos suggested that Dr. Salazar be designated as the committee chairperson. Mr. Arthur
recommended that a voting member of the committee who is not a trustee be designated as the chairperson.
Ms. Avalos asked Dr. Fernandez for his recommendation. Dr. Fernandez stated that the role of the
committee chairperson is very important and the duties are time consuming. Due to potential time
conflicts, he suggested that another voting member serve as the chairperson and for the committee to select
this individual at its first meeting. He also recommended that he not serve as the chairperson so that he
can focus on facilitating the process in his role as a consultant.
After discussion, the board agreed that the committee will select a chairperson at its first meeting.
The motion was approved through a roll call vote [7 ayes, 0 noes, 0 abstentions] (student advisory vote:
aye).

42. It was moved by Ms. Avalos and seconded by Mr. Drayer to establish Board Advisory Committees, as
amended.
Ms. Avalos stated she was unable to attend the September 3 regular meeting due to a death in her family
and apologized for being absent for the initial discussion of this item. She described how she considered
each trustee’s strengths, area of expertise, and previously stated concerns to develop the proposed advisory
committee memberships. Ms. Avalos stated that she listened to feedback regarding the proposed
membership of the advisory committees and stressed the importance of a collaborative effort to move the
college in a positive direction. She noted that the ACCJC chose to divide the board by labeling trustees
as the “majority” or “minority” and urged the board to work as a whole and as one team to serve in the
best interests of the college and work towards amending differences through open and honest
communication.
Mr. Arthur expressed his appreciation for Ms. Avalos’s eloquent and logical comments. He stated that
since the Accreditation report refers to the board majority as being responsible for deficiencies in Standard
IV, he strongly believes that the Accreditation advisory committee membership should be comprised of
the board officers. He also expressed that although it is difficult for him to make this statement, he is
concerned about possible conflicts of interest due to several trustees receiving election campaign
contributions from labor unions. He suggested that the PLA advisory committee membership be
comprised of two trustees (one pro and one con) and include Dr. Lacy and administrators who are well
versed in the development of PLAs.
Dr. Salazar stated that at the September 3 regular meeting, she respectfully declined to serve on the
Accreditation advisory committee and voiced her support of a PLA and her preference to serve on that
advisory committee. She recommended that Trustee Perez serve on the Accreditation advisory committee
in her place, and stated that she would like to prioritize her time by serving on the president/superintendent
search advisory committee and the PLA advisory committee. Taking into account Mr. Arthur’s concerns,
she stated that she is open to directing Dr. Lacy and legal counsel to develop a draft agreement and
expressed her disappointment that a draft agreement was not presented to the board as an action item for
the September 3 regular meeting. She requested a status update from staff. Dr. Lacy stated that she met
with Mr. Smith and also legal counsel from Atkinson, Andelson, Loya, Ruud & Romo, the firm that
drafted the PLA for Santa Ana College. They determined that a significant amount of time is necessary
to draft an agreement and that input from the board is needed prior to moving forward and beginning
negotiations. Mr. Smith concurred.
Ms. Perez suggested that she serve on the Accreditation advisory committee instead of Mr. Arthur, and
that he serve on the PLA advisory committee in her place. Mr. Arthur agreed. Mr. Drayer volunteered to
serve on the Accreditation advisory committee in Dr. Salazar’s place.
Ms. Avalos thanked everyone and stated that this is a good step towards moving forward as board.
The motion was approved through a roll call vote [7 ayes, 0 noes, 0 abstentions] (student advisory vote:
aye).

consultant, recommendations were forwarded to the Executive Council, and the approved
requests are now being presented to the board for consideration of approval.
There were no further questions about the agenda.

VI. ITEMS FROM INSTITUTIONAL COMMITTEES
Planning and Budget
Dr. Schilling distributed the attached June 19 meeting minutes. She stated that the
committee reviewed the draft 2014-2015 Strategic Plan and provided feedback. The draft
plan was then presented to the Board of Trustees as a discussion item and feedback from the
board was discussed at the September 4 committee meeting. The committee reviewed
survey results for the May 9 Strategic Planning Retreat and also reviewed Program Review
Plus, the software program that will eventually replace Planning Plus. Dr. Schilling stated
that a Faculty Ranking Task Force will be appointed to review criteria for the faculty ranking
process and develop recommendations for improvement.
Dr. El Fattal stated that three campus budget forums were scheduled to provide constituents
and the community with opportunities to ask questions and provide feedback regarding the
2014-2015 adoption budget. He stated that this is a good budget year and that the college is
fiscally sound. However, an item of concern for future years is the unfunded STRS liability
which is shared by three sources that currently fund STRS; the state, employers, and
employees. The rate for employers and employees will be increasing annually and it has
been legislated that in 2020-2021, the employer rate will increase from the present 8.5% to
19.10% for an approximate increase of $4.3 million annually. In comparison, the 2014-2015
employer rate increased to 9.5% for an approximate increase of $250,000. The annual rate
increases will be additional ongoing costs for the college’s budget.
Ms. Lewellen questioned whether COLA funds are used to fund the STRS liability and that
faculty will have to pay for increases in employee rates out of their own pockets. Dr. El
Fattal stated that COLA funding is far less than the increasing costs and that although both
employers and employees will be facing STRS rate increases, the employer rate increases are
far more substantial.
VII. ITEMS FROM FACULTY SENATE STANDING COMMITTEES
Instructional Program Review
Mr. Fronke distributed the attached January 21, February 4, February 18, April 1, April 25,
and May 6 meeting minutes. He stated that in 2013-14, the ESL, pharmacy technology,
library instruction and resources, physical therapist assistant, philosophy, woodworking
manufacturing technology, women’s studies, and anthropology departments completed the
instructional program review process. The programs scheduled for review this year include
economics, theatre/film, business accounting, art and design, child development, physical
education, psychology, earth sciences, and cosmetology. Mr. Fronke has met with each
department chair, and the business accounting and psychology programs have already
submitted their draft reports. He also stated that the real estate program began the program
review process in 2011-2012, but has yet to complete its self-study.
Mr. Fronke stated that at its September 2 meeting, the committee reviewed its goals as they
relate to college strategic goals and activities and also reviewed Program Review Plus, the
software program that will eventually replace Planning Plus. Mr. Fronke has been meeting
with the programmer during the development of this new computerized program and he
stated that the meetings were very productive, and the goal is to have a working prototype in
place by the end of this semester so that it can be rolled out to faculty in spring 2015 to
begin planning activities for academic year 2015-2016. The committee also discussed the
Back to Board AgendaBack to Board Agenda
APPROVED
3
importance of SLOs and program outcomes, and Dr. Frank Mixson will begin attending
future meetings to provide assistance in this area.
Mr. Soto questioned whether there will be consequences for the real estate program. Mr.
Fronke stated that program review is directly linked to planning, which is linked to resource
allocation, and that without program review this connection is broken. The committee has
developed recommendations for sanctions for non-compliant departments that include
denial of requests for resource allocation (i.e. human resources, Perkins grant funds). He
stated that the committee will continue to work with the program to complete its self-study.
VIII. STATUS OF SHARED GOVERNANCE
Proposed New Board Policy 2800 Student Success Funds From Vintage Cerritos
Community College District
Dr. El Fattal stated that at its August 25 meeting, the committee requested that the language
be clarified to state that the funds cannot be used for ongoing personnel costs but may be
used for stipends for teaching improvement workshops or activities, and that language be
revised to be less restrictive so that in emergency situations, the board may authorize
utilizing the funds for purposes outside the scope outlined in the proposed new policy.
The committee reached consensus to forward proposed new BP 2800 to the Board of
Trustees. Mr. Aiello was not present for the discussion.
Consideration of Approval of 2014-2015 Strategic Plan
Dr. Schilling stated that goals and activities were developed at the annual strategic planning
retreat on May 9, 2014. A total of 87 employees and board members (3 board, 33 managers,
33 faculty, 18 classified/confidential) reviewed the 2013-2014 college strategic goals to
develop goals and activities for 2014-2015.
The draft plan was reviewed and discussed by the board at its July 16 regular meeting.
Thereafter, the draft plan, along with feedback from the board, was presented to and
reviewed by the Planning and Budget Committee at its September 4 meeting. The plan is
now being presented to the Coordinating Committee for approval.
Mr. Soto questioned whether Instructional Programs Goal 3 is related to success rates and
outcomes for non-credit assessment preparation courses AED 49.01 Preparatory Math
(formerly Math 20) and AED 48.05 College English Skills (formerly English 15), and
whether those classes will eventually revert to credit courses. Dr. Schilling stated that this
topic is not related to the goal and that she will provide counselors with requested data. Dr.
Namala stated that he and Mr. Soto discussed the significance of moving these courses to
AED, and expressed his concern that students may face difficulties in maintaining
Satisfactory Academic Progress (SAP) Standards for financial aid by taking a non-credit
class. Dr. Johnson stated that federal regulations have changed significantly during the past
few years due to lifetime eligibility used (LEU) limitations. The overarching concern is that
students may be ineligible for financial aid when transferring because they have already
received the maximum LEU by taking basic skills and developmental education classes. Dr.
Schilling stated that community colleges face multiple layers of problems in providing
support for basic skills students. Mr. Soto stated that this is an ongoing discussion topic for
the Developmental Education Committee and that many students are taking an extra class to

receive the most financial aid possible and that they have no incentive to take a non-credit
course.
It was moved by Mr. O’Neil and seconded by Mr. Soto to approve the attached 2014-2015
Strategic Plan. The vote for approval was unanimous. Mr. Aiello was not present for the
vote.
IX. REPORTS FROM COORDINATING COMMITTEE MEMBERS
Mr. Aiello stated that ASCC Senate elections are scheduled for Wednesday and Thursday of
this week. He requested that faculty reach out to students to encourage them to get involved
in ASCC and reap the benefits of learning about leadership. He stated that during summer,
he and ASCC Vice President Charles Caguioa developed a draft mission/vision statement
and core values to serve as a foundation for the restructuring of ASCC. The statements will
be presented to the ASCC Senate for consideration of adoption. Mr. Aiello also stated that
in the past, the Student Veterans Club organized activities for Veterans Day; however, with
the goal of increasing faculty and student participation as well as increasing recognition for
veterans, ASCC and additional student clubs have worked collaboratively to schedule an
event for Monday, November 10 to begin at 11:00 a.m. in the Falcon Square. Mr. Aiello also
announced that a Go Green Committee meeting is scheduled for Wednesday, September 17.
Ms. Lewellen stated that Julie Bathke, Sabbatical Leave Committee chair, is scheduled to
attend the September 9 Faculty Senate meeting to discuss and recommend that the senate
approve revised directions for sabbatical leave abstracts to reflect that at least one sentence
must relate to student success. She stated that this will address concerns expressed by the
board.
Dr. Johnson stated that the Veterans Resource Center will be moving into the old ISC
building on September 15 and that an open house announcement will follow.
Mr. O’Neil stated that the STEM open house is scheduled for September 26.

increase (career development and college preparation)
Expenditure Information:
A change in the STRS rate will add an additional general fund expense of
$250,740 for 2014-15, with additional increases in subsequent years
Special Revenue Funds (Fund 39.x): Sub funds are now in place for improved
transparency
Total Vacant Positions Budgeted: 49.17 (27 Bargaining Unit Employees,
excludes classified managers); Unrestricted General Fund: 34.37; Other
restricted fund: 14.80. All these positions are either in the process of being
filled or will be filled in the future. Mr. Delawalla stated that the vacant
positions were comprised of approximately 13.77 faculty; 27.19 classified
bargaining unit employees; 7 managers (1 already filled, total 8)
It was noted that the 2015/16 Projected Budget for Capital Outlay, the number
should be 1,243,988. The deficit shown for 2015-16 (902,579) and 2016-17 of
(3,529,866) is primarily from the STRS rate increase
Transfers Out: 69.1 Retiree Health Benefit Fund = $500,000
Transfers Out: 69.2 SRP Fund = $1,000,000. This fully funds the liability for
the two SRPs. There is no further need to transfer additional monies for the
SRPs. Three years of payments remain for the total liability of the SRPs.
The sales tax portion of Prop. 30 is scheduled to sunset in December, 2016.
Mr. El Fattal stated that STRS rate is increasing for both employers and employees in
California. He noted that in 2013-14 the employer rate is 8.25%. In 2014-15 the rate
goes to 8.88% with an additional projected ongoing cost by fiscal year for Cerritos
College of $250,740. Each year the percentage increases. It is estimated that by
2020-21 the employer rate will be 19.10% with the additional projected ongoing cost
to be $4,318,300 each fiscal year for Cerritos College. This is an institutional cost and
the college will have to budget this item each year.
Resource Allocation:
Mr. El Fattal reviewed the 2014-15 resource allocation sheet. He noted that this list
went through the resource allocation process. The college has received new monies
for scheduled maintenance and instructional equipment. The dollar figures and
2

Approved 09/04/14
possible funding sources shown on the resource allocation sheet may change as the
budget becomes final in September. Once the student equity plan is approved, the
Board has requested flexibility of the student equity funds so there is money available
to fund items. Dr. Aborn inquired how that relates to the student success dollars. Mr.
El Fattal replied that student success has $1.3 million in new money and there is
$605,000 that has been identified in resource allocation. The money will be spent.
Dr. Schilling further explained that there was already $900,000 in 3SP funds that were
allocated and the college is receiving an additional $1.3 million. There is a need to
look at the overall budget for 3SP. The allocated money shown on the resource
allocation sheet is just for the current identified items. This does not affect categorical
money. Dr. Aborn noted that when reviewing the new positions that were authorized
in the budget, could the additional monies in those two funds pay for the new
personnel? Mr. El Fattal replied yes. Mr. Delawalla added that that the exact budget
numbers will not be known until the end of July. Dr. Gularte commented that the
college has received funding to make an effect on the long list of resource allocation
requests. Dr. Schilling added that the Faculty Obligation Number (FON) for next year
is 240. The college exceeded its anticipated FON of 259 and presently stands at 266.
She noted that she does not know what effect this will have on hiring for next year.
5. ITEMS FROM THE FLOOR
Dr. Aborn inquired what the next steps for the student equity plan are, and what is
the role of the Planning and Budget Committee? Dr. Schilling replied that the activities
that each group discussed at the retreat are being compared to the activities that are
already in the strategic plan. The student equity plan will then come back to the
Planning and Budget Committee for review. Dr. Johnson is writing the report and
hopes to submit the report at the end of September. Dr. Aborn noted that the five
initiatives were discussed in separate work groups, and we need to ensure that the
constituent groups have an opportunity for input.
Dr. Aborn asked how the college is planning to address any recommendations that
come from the accreditation process and how is the college going to incorporate those
recommendations into the strategic plan. Dr. Schilling replied that there is a
bookmark in the accreditation for the strategic plan. Also, the Accreditation
Committee is meeting in July to address the first stage of what the college is going to
do. The Accreditation Committee will be the action committee to disseminate
information and ensure staff are working on things. The planning and budget
committee will be reviewing the information as part of the strategic plan.

Physical Therapist Assistant Presentation
The Physical Therapist department discussed the career path and job market for the
Physical Therapist Assistants. The department noted the attraction to the field and the
rapid turnover. The program is very strong and the field is very competitive. There are
over 350 applicants for only 52 spots. The pool is growing and has tripled with
applicants. The student applicants are very qualified, have high grade point averages,
as well as a fair amount of college work and sometime numerous degrees. The
department is challenged with numerous applicants and only two instructors to review
the forms which becomes cumbersome and time consuming. There are currently three
degree levels and some even hold doctoral degrees. Not only does the field include
certifications, but there are state licensing and board exams. Beginning this year there
is direct access in California to see a Physical Therapist without the referral to a doctor.
The department discussed their SWOT analysis which incorporated the department
Back to Board AgendaBack to Board Agenda
goals. There was mention that the competing proprietary programs do allow
certifications without Associate degrees and are gaining accreditation; however if not
accredited can’t sit for the licensing exam. Cerritos College is the only public PTA
program in the Los Angeles area between our area, Visalia and San Diego. The
internships are a total of 3-6 weeks. The internships have unpaid as well as unpaid
supervisors. Professional development offsets some of the competition. There must be
a Physical Therapist on site to back the PTA. The PTA’s are becoming more and more
independent. The department concluded that the job field is promising. The majority of
the PTA’s already have a job lined up before they complete the program.
The presentation concluded with questions and comments from the committee. The
department’s goals and final review will be available for review on the Program Review
Committee’s website.

programs the department offers as well as the career opportunities. The department
informed the committee that many people are unaware of famous people that hold
Philosophy degrees. It was noted that the degree covers the legal field including
attorneys, FBI Agents, and a wide range of lucrative careers. The department’s goals
were itemized thoroughly and discussed. The department noted that they have one of
the highest retention rates in the United States. The department has a working tool in
their monthly meetings to track the progress of their SLO’s. The department is
proficient with the SLO Assessment and their process was highly commended by Mark
Fronke. Ana Torres-Bower noted that it is advantageous to her with being on the SLO
committee and that the faculty are all in high gear with following the processes and
Back to Board AgendaBack to Board Agenda
timelines. The department was commended on having the best developed goal forms
the committee has seen. The committee congratulated the department on their efforts

for the review. The committee members were impressed with the review and informed
the department that all of their efforts have very well paid off.
The program review concluded with a distribution from Ana Torres-Bower with

Woodworking Presentation
The Woodworking department Chair, Carl Stammerjohn and instructor Anthony Fortner
gave a thorough description of their goals. Since there are numerous amount of goals,
the committee recommended further prioritization. The department mentioned the
range of opportunities in the workforce being very broad starting with the entry level
positions and ranging to the high end positions. The demand continues to be in mostly
limited to those two ranges. The field also offers many options for small business
ownership. One of the biggest challenges the department faces is the fact that many of
the students are considered lifelong learners and fall into the category where the core
indicators do not apply. Many of the students who are considered lifelong learners have
already earned a degree.
Safety concerns with equipment use, and shortage of hourly staff due to budget cuts is
of great concern. The hourly staff assist students when using the equipment, and
especially new students where the new tools and equipment are being introduced. The
hiring preference is for part-time employees versus hourly due to commitment, reliability
and stability. The program continues to increase in student placements, so there is a
great impact on the effects of the 40/% budget decrease impact. The committee
recommended that the department request funds through the College Foundation as an
option; however due the nature of the academic program, grants and funding
requirements are not met.
Back to Board AgendaBack to Board Agenda
The college program continues to be vital, especially since neighboring colleges are no
longer offering the program. Trade Technical College who previously offered the
program has now limited their offerings to carpentry, and their cabinetry program was
closed, also Long Beach College has closed their department entirely.
The rare logistics involved with the department do not impact other academic
departments. An example would include hauling and transporting equipment and
college parking challenges due to this.
The committee made recommendations to the department with solutions to address
some of the department’s unique challenges and suggested tangible ways that the
department could justify their concerns. Displaying evidence on YouTube by presenting
some of the processes of concern, and documenting facts was advised.
The review concluded with a brief question and answer session.

Women’s Studies Presentation
The Women’s Studies department chair Amy Holzgang gave the presentation of the
department along with instructors Julie Davis and Julie Trager. The department
reviewed their goals with the committee and provided vital information regarding the
department and the issues with cross listing. Although there are non FTE’s connected
to the home department the committee has a lot of challenges listing Women’s Studies
Back to Board AgendaBack to Board Agenda
courses. Students have expressed challenges in several areas related to the course
listings. An example is: depending on how the student registers for the course
determines how the course will be listed on the official transcript. Courses although
related to Women’s History, may end up being coded as a History course or a GE
requirement. It was noted that the departments of Economics and Women’s Studies
