Action We need a new SSEC Representative from Basic Skills, a volunteer to represent us to replace Jorge Villalobos.
Meetings are held the 2nd and 4th Friday of every month (9:00am-11:00am).
Committee needs to send name to council; let Cindy know if interested.
Information Items Update on Proposed Basic Skills Initiative Funding Form – Shayla Form Based on SSEC form, ours follows spirit and process they have in place. The form is on the BSI website.
(Website issues) Redirection needs to happen: Debra will speak with Chris Norcross about re-routing to NEW website
PDF form is writeable.
Shayla will contact Alonna Farrar to make sure that the submission link sends the documents to Shayla or one of the coordinators.
Links included to assist applicants
Action Plan explains the projects associated with our allocation; this committee finalizes the action plans for the coming year during the fall semester
There is flexibility within our budget, though sometimes we need to move items around to find funding.
The committee looks over applications/ looks back or plans ahead
October 1st deadline: Spring
Shayla is working with a group of individuals from across campus for input about all grant sources/allocations in the hopes of informing us all more effectively.
Committee members love the idea of having ONE form that has all of the available funding sources (this is how CIE came about!)
Comet Information Exchange: All college council information in one location
This hits accreditation “evidence”
Learning Communities and Village Mentoring – Carol Enrollment picked up!
Total students enrolled
Carol will be asking for LC links soon: need to know by February (beginning)
English 10: Cinema 100-- Kevin Kearney with Candace Rose: add embedded tutor
Strategies add reading: work with Reading dept: readability, techniques…
What do we want to do with this document: revise for next fall?
Do we need additional information about these activities, add new activities?
Long term goals, 5 year goals, tie activities to goals
Conversation about goals, this may shift our activities
4 goals as outlined in the plan we presented
Are we getting data for these goals? Shayla is working on getting it from Research & Planning
Need Goals/Activities as handouts: prior to next meeting, will break out into small groups to discuss
We can add more, maybe some are already established so move on to new items?
Erin: Online tutoring: Math NET tutors will be available when the center is closed: currently working on contracts… students need tutoring during times when the center is closed
NET tutoring available 24 hours/day
