    Finding a compromise to Funding four positions from faculty hiring prioritization list while supporting Online Education with Administrative Dean position and one more Instructional Designer: Co-chairs presented the three options for discussion and vote:

    1. We hire four faculty positions from the faculty prioritization list.

    2. We hire one more faculty position from the faculty prioritization list and the rest of the funding goes to hire a Classified Instructional Designer and Dean.

    3. We hire three faculty positions on the list and one Classified Instructional Designer and request that the senior staff use one-time money to hire a dean for the remainder of this year, and the 2022-2023 fiscal year, with the understanding that permanent funding would come from future retirements, resignations, or new dollars in Instruction for the 2023-2024 fiscal year and beyond.

    Christina Espinosa-Pieb explained that Higher Education Emergency Relief Fund (HEERF) funds and money dropping to the bottom line through unfilled positions make temporary funding of the Online Education Dean position a possibility.

    Tim Shively and others objected to the commitment of retirement and resignation funds being promised as a means to permanently fund the Dean position. Dawn stated that the IPBT members were unnecessarily being pressed to hurriedly vote for one of the options presented when these were neither the only nor the best choices. She felt instead there should be a look at the bigger College and District picture.

    While some expressed they did not feel voters were ready to cast their vote, a poll was taken. Option 3 received 15 votes, option 1 received 10 votes, option 2 received zero votes, and there was one abstention.
