The August meeting of the SOCCCD BOT: not live, not direct, not nuttin'



     (See Tere's Board Meeting Highlights.*)
     The Board of Trustees’ August meeting is tonight at 6:15 p.m. (the closed session starts at 5:00).
     The agenda is available here.
     The faculty union (Faculty Association) plans once again to provide a green-shirted presence in the grandly hollow Ronnie Reagan Room—to draw attention to faculty needs and wants re the contract. That hasn’t worked out very well in recent months. —The presence, I mean. Nobody's been showin' up. Maybe they need a different color.
     No discussion items tonight. So it will be light on the ol' Dog und Pony.
     It’s “budget” night: general action item 6.1 is “Adopted Budget for Fiscal Year 2014-2015 Approve the FY 2014-2015 Adopted Budget as presented.” Etc.
     There’ll be foundation reports. That’s always interesting—or “interesting” or interesting.
     I won’t be there. My back is “out,” as they say, and I ain’t goin’ nowhere.


     *I noticed this in Tere's "Board Meeting Highlights":
The board meeting was adjourned in memory of Saddleback College Professor Michael Runyan who died suddenly last month. Professor Runyan was one of the first faculty hired at Saddleback in 1977. He was a dedicated English professor and colleague who retired in 2008. Our thoughts and prayers go out to his family and friends.

  1. Noticed the Wendy campaign booth in front of the student services building. Ain't that against board policy?

  2. I don't think you can use campus resources but it's an open campus. (Same reason guy with the bible can sit in the same spot)

  3. 11:13 PM is correct. IVC is an open campus and Wendy is allowed to give out materials in the "free speech" area in front of the SSC Building. Heck, we'll even let a Republican hand out materials if they want to. :)
