    Notes for February 15, 2022: Notes were approved with rephrasing of last sentence of paragraph “Program Review and Timeline”.

    Consideration of possible plan for allocation of Enhanced Lottery and Instructional Equipment: Christina presented the scenario on allocation of enhanced lottery funds and instructional equipment funds that was shown at last week’s meeting. The big-ticket items have been removed since the allocation was shown at January 11, 2022 meeting. Possibly Measure G funds will cover the big-ticket items. Also, since the January 11th meeting the Deans have removed items no longer needed. The total requested was $6.07 million when approximately $3.5 million is available. The percentages for divisions eligible for CTE funds include Strong Workforce and Perkins funds already allocated and approved for 2021-22. All 21 members present voted in favor of approving this scenario with no one objecting and no one abstaining.

    Funds Made Available by Faculty Retirements: Christina reminded all of the ask the Technology Committee brought to College Council meeting of February 17, 2022: “Recommend that President Holmes fully fund, staff and support a robust and fully functioning Online Education Center.” Lydia Hearn presented numbers clearly showing the need for hiring a manager for Online Education and an additional Instructional Designer. There was 50% decrease in staffing since 2011 yet the number of sections being supported with Canvas shells has increased by 837%. During the budget crisis, as a cost saving measure, Lorrie Ranck kept her responsibilities as Dean of Online Education when she accepted the position of VPI.

    Cheryl Balm emphasized the need to treat funds as applicable to campus wide needs. Tim stated that the issue is 10 faculty positions from supplemental retirement program (SRP) have already been taken to backfill the budget. Christina cautioned that the increase in administrative positions has been District wide but there was no increase in number of administrators at De Anza College. Patti put a face on the group that stands to gain the most from hiring more full-time faculty, students, by recounting the success of some students in her ESL classes. Dean Ramos stated not replacing the faculty who retired under SRP makes building enrollment extremely challenging. Lydia requested that all look at the proposal to hire the two positions for Online Education Center as supporting the infrastructure. Salvadore questioned how success amongst the unrepresented groups compared in online versus face-to-face. The numbers are in the Program Review tool.
