Please join us tomorrow for an important Board meeting at 6:30 pm. The Governing Board will be voting on a resolution which rescinds the 2/27/18 resolution. To read the content, see Consent Agenda Item 7.1 in the Board Book (see page 6).
Here is a recap:
- Hendrix resigned as Board president at the beginning of the Board meeting.
- Sullivan nominated Thor as Board president. McGrath nominated Hendrix. Thor was elected by a 4-3 vote.
- Nerini nominated Sullivan as Board secretary. Hendrix nominated Winn. Winn was elected by a 4-3 vote.
FA President John Schampel and Provost Karla Fisher were interviewed about the HLC’s response to the complaint filed. Listen at Maricopa Community College Faculty, Workers Criticize Provision Changes.
HLC has sent the response to the District:
The response states that the Governing Board’s actions have prompted HLC’s addition of an “area of focus” (focused on the Governing Board’s actions outlined in the FA’s complaint) that will be included in Gateway’s upcoming HLC Accreditation visit. According to the HLC website, “Commission staff may expand the focus of the evaluation where appropriate to review additional topics of concern to the Commission.” For context, this would be the equivalent of an accreditation criterion not being fully met during a regular HLC visit.
