Almost immediately, readers wrote us to suggest that there would be a summer session, but a very small one.
About an hour ago, denizens of Irvine Valley College got confirmation in the form of the following memo from VP Craig Justice:
SUBJECT: SUMMER SESSION 2012 AT IRVINE VALLEY COLLEGE
At the September 30, 2011, meeting of the Irvine Valley College Instructional Council…, the following consensus points were reached about the summer 2012 term:
• There will be one 8-week summer session. It will commence on Monday, June 18, 2012. (Saddleback College will have the same summer calendar.)
. . .
• Due to the cap on the number of full-time equivalent students (FTES) now in place, and due to the large number of sections and students that the college is not being compensated for, summer 2012 will be significantly smaller that [sic] summer 2011....
The Instructional Council strongly supports not cutting the fall and spring primary terms. To create a larger summer session in 2012 would mean that we would have to cut fall 2012 and spring 2013 classes and enrollments. Thus, summer 2012 offerings must be limited….ALSO IN THE NEWS:
The deans and academic chairs will commence work later this semester on developing a specific list of sections that will be funded for summer 2012….
Thank you for your cooperation.
