English dept. [CORRECTION]

     At a colleague’s request, I viewed the streaming video of the April 28 meeting of the SOCCCD Board of Trustees, and I noted the “closed session actions” read out, at the start of the open session, by board Clerk, Marcia Milchiker:
“On a 7 to 0 vote, the board voted to rescind the board’s decision to non-renew a probationary faculty member’s contract and in lieu except the faculty member’s resignation.” [See here and here (Feb. 24) for original decision.]
     The faculty member in question is (I believe) a member of IVC’s English Department. (In February, the board voted not to renew the contract of a SC and an IVC probationary faculty.) We wish him well. NOPE, GOT THIS WRONG. IT WAS THE SC INSTRUCTOR.
     Very recently, the IVC English Department hired two new full-time faculty.
