LBCCD – Board of Trustees Meeting -November 8, 2016 – Part 5


I just want to thank miles that was a very comprehensive report and you managed to do it short and sweet it was good thank you there’s other things going on tonight yeah present master I’d like to thank miles that this is really informative miles i look forward to getting more updates as far as the legislative affairs goes it’s if it’s possible to grab some give a little bit of a distilled data for us in the presentation like in the description and the pyre hand and not that this was about as this was a great presentation by the way just so we can have a little bit more no opportunity to look into the bills that specifically or maybe having at opinion or analysis provided to the board prior to presentation or you know in combination with the presentation that would be fantastic just a suggestion but the fantastic job as usual thanks miles thank you ok I i turn the page and i forgot what the number with 8.1 2016-17 first-quarter budget performance report vice president gable please thank you for president Baxter and i will try to go through this quickly as well this is our quarterly report so it’s reflecting our actual activity as in September thirtieth of 2016 and then we’re doing a comparison between our current budget and what we think we’re going to end the year so the projected here in column is our best guess at this point in time of the what our numbers numbers will look like at june thirtieth of 2017 so you can see there on the first page looking at the federal revenues and our state revenues at this point in time we’re not projecting any difference in you’re in numbers versus our budget so no change there and then moving down to the second page again the local revenues and our other financing sources we are projecting any changes at this point in time either so then moving on to page 3 this is where we get into our salaries we have our academic salaries where we are projecting a savings of just under a hundred and thirty-five thousand dollars in academic salaries and on the classified salaries were currently projecting just over 500 73,000 the savings from both of these line items is generated from vacancies so as hard as we are trying to fill all the vacancies that we have as fast as we can unfortunately we are quite filled to capacity with all the positions that have been approved and so your that’s being reflected here in the projected savings moving on to page four we have the benefits so since we have a projected savings and salaries we have a projected savings and benefits of just about 329 thousand dollars as far as the supplies and materials the next major component that you’re seeing there we are projecting any savings at this point in time it’s too early to project whether or not we’ll have savings in those because we’re going under the assumption that all of the funds allocated to the department’s will be spent by the department’s for the contracted services and operating expenses that you see here on page five we do have one change in the projection that’s on the election expenses so we we have forty-three thousand dollars that will be over what we budgeted and the reason for that is that the bond election expense came in higher than what the county had originally estimated for us so when we were closing our books they gave us an estimated number when we got the bill that came in higher so you’re seeing the difference there and then moving on to page six again capital outlay we’re not projecting any change in budget at this point in time so overall for our total expenditures and other outgo we are projecting a savings of about nine hundred ninety three thousand dollars which means that our ending fund balance will be higher by 993 dollars or that’s their projected at this point in time so with that I will close and open up to any questions that the Board may have any questions okay thank you very much alright we’ll go on to the first quarter 2016-17 CCF s 311 cute if it unless there’s really this is any action this is the I’m sorry oh it’s a report says information is asked you good yeah anyone with information ate with you is a cape point to is the actual documents for the city california sorry i was just gonna make the motion to motion to prove a point to okay it was moved by trustee kellogg seconded by trustee Otto is there any discussion or questions right Madam Secretary virginia baxter i jeff kellogg all right Vivian mullet we knew I dug auto right in Sonny’s iya I ok thank you 8.3 revised board policy and administrative regulation 7007 prevention reporting and campus security so moved second I think this is an information item is the first reading first reading either any questions about the many pages that was an extensive report by the way as long as a lot of work i have a question madam chair is this this isn’t the one that we had believed it was two meetings ago for it was the harassment one that was a step no this is totally different I think it’s because we we are installing security cameras and so we had to have an updated policy that included those security cameras is that correct vice president gable yes that is absolutely correct so what we brought for you today as the first reading is that the change to the board policy 7007 for the policy were really only adding the one statement saying that the board will have a policy that we’re going to maintain a video surveillance system that can be used to investigate alleged crimes or incidences occurring on campus we also provided the administrative regulation to you just as information as you know the board doesn’t take action on the administrative regulations but we wanted the board to see those regulations that we are proposing both of these have gone through the president’s leadership council and we didn’t have any comments from any that constituent groups so barring any changes from the board tonight we will bring back the policy at the December 13th meeting for an action okay thank you any comments questions okay thank you will go on to report Academic Senate and no report Thank You superintendent president I just a couple quick ones first there is still an hour and 20 minutes left before the polls close and Alejandro needs to get there before the polls close to home and for all of our students who are in and around the area i hope that you take this opportunity to go vote I can’t think of another election that has been more important to their future than this one so I’m hopeful that everyone votes other than that I just want to since the issue was brought up thank all the faculty staff and student support have been participating in the speaker series equity speaker series i think with all that’s been said I do think that the students have benefited from the discussions that are being had and I hope that those discussions continued well after the speakers of left campus that’s all i have to say thank you student trustees i’m so going back a few weeks major declaration that was I thought huge success for those who attended I heard a lot of positive feedbacks it was great a bow that pc and la see too many hot dogs but that’s different story I’m but i’d like to take its not think that opportunity or use this opportunity to thank the community college foundation because we so student government got awarded specific impact grant for a mountain up to ten thousand dollars and we are one of the 25 colleges that received the ground and that Grant was primarily and can only be used towards us of engagement increasing the number of registered students and increasing voter turnout in general so it’s been a huge success thus far this is one of our last events that are AC president mentioned earlier it’s right across the hall if any of you can attend some services that we are providing or some nonpartisan information about jesus oh you might be on yes yes oh my god all my candy that trustee kellogg mentioned that I’d never let this that he never lets go and I think I don’t even know what was going to say anyway oh yeah so homecoming was a great success jordan also won homecoming queen so congratulations to her but it was a huge success a lot of students for their it was just really awesome to see both engagement from soon life and from other groups as well but going back to the suit change picture I said you could be a movie star that’s a cool Kane anyway I i think only smile was larger than it was before we we redid him it’s just for this urban yeah we’re planning it but looking back at our numbers it looks like we helped register a little over 200 students thus far so it was a great success shuttling students back and forth to the pole location all day today and we’re still providing that service so if any of you know of any students faculty and our staff that don’t have any access or availability to make it to their poles let us know so we can figure out some coordination before the polls close tonight and then superintendent president oakley mentioned i do have to go to my polling location by APM so that’ll be fun anyway it was been a great success and we’re looking forward to the end of the semester in regards to our student government our last meeting is November eighteenth and we’re looking forward to getting back and we’re looking back and reflecting on what we did as a whole and really think about what we intentions for our positions to be and really focusing more on our professional and leadership development as a whole but yeah it’s been a great night and thank you thank you are you leaving right now I can stay oh ok yeah because you have an hour and 20 minutes ok very good board of trustees who wants to go first I find me wanna go first I didn’t want you to play he spoke faster go ahead trustee out of then we’ll go to you i will cede my time to our student trustee and hopes you don’t get to the polls on time thank you ok so i actually have a few items to report but i will be very quick it’s been a very busy last few weeks since our last meeting I I consider it a privilege i was able to attend Cornel West presentation and I also spent about 15 minutes in with the classified staff in the superintendent president search forum which is kinda neat to be able to personally here the contributions that they were making to the profile on october twenty second i went to the homecoming game and I was going to congratulate trustee Alejandro student trustee for his big win it was awesome and then on I’ve been to a lot of different community events under various pretenses for lack of a better word but on october 30 if I on behalf of the college I attended a women’s suffrage celebration at recreation park which I thought was very important and it was really neat to see that some there were a couple of our students there but there were a lot of high school students there so I had an opportunity to speak to them and hopefully recruit them to join us whatever their plans might be for college in the future on november first again i was at the Van Jones and you know I was there on April 21st and he was definitely a lot more relaxed this time obviously he was a close personal friend of Prince I’m November forth i went to the csulb elder celebration for the EOP program and the reason why that event was significant to me last Friday is because i have personally preferred a lot of lbc students into the EOP program particularly a cal state long beach those really need to see the celebration that transpired celebrating 50 years of that amazing incredible program which is really truly helped so many students on November fifth trust the Baxter trustee auto trustee kellogg and i participated in the veterans day parade in north long beach it was a great event and there were a lot of our lbcc student veterans there which is really great to see also and then that evening I was here again for the football game my nephew place for Riverside Community College and riverside was undefeated and the game was incredible it was tied several times it was a trustee kellogg and I were both there was 33 it was 10 and then it was 31 31 when the clock ran out and we went into overtime and lbcc one so we we beat the undefeated team in our league so it was kinda awesome my nephew did a great job that I just want I just want to mention that and then there are five quick things other than just events i want to share with you five quick things that I want to mention in my report some may require follow-up one is I I definitely want to follow up on the attendance at the student equity series event so maybe if I can you know atender be privy to some of those meetings and discussions I’d be happy to brainstorm and figure out how we can pack the house a little bit better the second thing is that this is my third time mentioning this I would just like to know what the status is of moving at least one board meeting to the pcc campus i can answer that question right now you have to bring back we are looking at the construction schedule a pc we think we can hold a meeting recently probably in Gigi’s that correct Emery so we’re going to be working with the board secretary and figure out the best timing for a board meeting at PCC into 2017 year awesome that’s great thank you very much and also is and this is what i wanted to bring up Karen under the the Academic Senate and if if this this is probably not the best time you can tell me you know we can meet some other time but I attended several events where it was brought up to me that this community would really benefit from having some kind of teacher education program or liberal arts kind of a more of a like we’ve got a nursing program just to expand upon our liberal arts program and to perhaps you know better develop that so if we can meet at some other time I just want to bring that up or should I address that could i interject maybe vice president Longwood but but there is a club on campus right a teacher’s club and megan kopinski done a super job at getting her students together 22 to be in that mode are we able to comment at this moment yeah and and again I know tonight’s a there’s a lot going on tonight so we can even table it to another time but i did want to bring it up because i want i want to be a good representative and that has been brought up to me so I’ll just I’ll just let you know that there is a degree that’s near completion for teacher education awesome that’s good to know in any info you have send it so I can pass it along this is for our communications department just wondering where we are in terms of being able to send out those text alerts if you’ve been able to follow up on that I know that John Pope and I admit we talked about it but i’m hearing the same thing i didn’t know about it I didn’t know what’s happening so we need to really be more aggressive to email and text blast our students and let the notes happening and the last thing and this is a very very important issue i just want to bring up on October thirty-first the board participated in the campus costume contest of Trustees iya we missed you i know there was a schedule conflict there i’d like to thank everyone who participated we did not win we did not win i believe i believe it was betrayed and I just want to first of all again just again and again actually we didn’t even get honorable mention we didn’t get honorable mention either so the fact that the board with crazy busy schedules to to be able to bring seven people together and you know have such a creative costume black t-shirts and stickers come on you know doesn’t get more elaborate than that we were the social media board to highlight our effort to bring social media into our campus so my comment is for the campus bodies who sponsor such events is this money yeah that’s where my team t-shirt ok I thought you were paying me to be quiet if I thought it would work i would and my report so what I would like to suggest to the powers-that-be who host this event because I went I went all over campus i got to visit several of the department’s great great costumes great decorations but we are so limited in the awards that we present best costume best decorations we can do better and i think that if we do better in expanding the awards that we present we will have a lot more participation for example most creative most scariest most comical most expensive or at least expensive about the best trustee that’s right yeah but so hopefully next year you know whoever sponsored this event and the judges can perhaps offered you know everybody gets an award and this is something that when i was teaching I was activities director for many years and I made sure that everybody got an award so that way they would be more encouraging and inclined to participate so that’s it you know i’m just saying we didn’t win ok thank you thank you hello Lou trust me kill of the I think vice president peterson was one of the judges I just don’t know about your career advancement but not letting trustees when when you’re a judge ID I’m just saying but I today election day and the fact that there was mentioned veterans day was this past week participation at all in fact the election day and we just started looking back I was probably the first of the classes that at a time when the 18 year olds were not allowed to vote they were allowed to be drafted go to war but they cannot vote in my eye was one of the first classes of that age group to be able to vote so i always encourage people to to exercise your right and we’re going to get out of here source student trustee can do as well congratulations to our student trustee that picture by the way I wasn’t in the only costume but there was another picture with the three of us were there that i insert myself that was a great event i love to see when we have student activities to make this more more of an enjoyable that but that that day was a very well done by all the people involved so congratulations to that and on November 16 which is a wednesday coming up we’re going to be having another athletic event is going to the women’s volleyball the football team has had a phenomenal year they’ve had unfortunate loss that may impact the end of the season but our volleyball women’s volleyball team is really competing for the championship so we are going to hopefully have a lot of participation a lot of activities on the Wednesday November 16 and hopefully we get some good turnout because that’s a critical game against El Camino which is the one we lost our team has suffered in five sets at El Camino so encourage everyone for that one and congratulations everybody and again please vote and exercise your democratic right on this very special day in this country thank you just easier I’ll be brief I just hope that tonight America doesn’t let us down and we make history for the good thank you that’s it wow ok here’s my report first of all congratulations to the journalism Department for winning a number of awards congratulations to Pat McCain and also to Walter hammer world our new faculty member the art gallery faculty art exhibit is on until november twenty-third and i encourage you to go and see the exhibit it’s got a great deal of attention and of course is featuring our faculty i want to congratulate trustee zia she is being honored as a mujeres que el ano significant lady of the year mujer accepts your now I on Friday November eighteenth at the hotel maya she’s being honored by the regional Hispanic Institute so congratulations to her for that award and the other ladies including Judy seal I see here and alum and also councilman Susie fights so congratulations also congratulations to emory gable & Molly Smith who have both won statewide awards very good for their accomplishments i want to remind people that the muf g unionbank reception will be tomorrow at wednesday at 1pm in GG 238 and congratulations to economic development for that $300,000 grant i also want to congratulate a jailbird well Joe Birdwell is a classified employee here and she was recognized by Supervisor Don kabhi as she and her husband have adopted one of the safe surrender babies and I thought that was really nice and he brought you bought them on stage and they spoke about it and I talked to Jill afterward I went to supervisor cannot bees event and they were called and they had four hours to respond to get to the hospital to pick up the baby so that’s a great thing and and supervisor cannot be a set up a scholarship fund for those safe surrender children which I think it’s like 149 now I too was in the veterans day parade and it was great to see so many people out and congratulations to our veterans and last year trust easy and i started a food and toiletry drive and Alejandro before you leave we each have a contribution to the dr this is not for the thanksgiving drive this is for the homeless drive so everyone will hand over their donation to you and I even give you your very own bag i want to point out that the house services and student life committee does not want cans because if you’re truly homeless you’re not walking around with can so i went to big lots my favorite store and for instance you can buy a chicken alfredo for two dollars and that’s a whole meal because right now when you go to health services at either campus and they’re giving now cliff bars or granola bars which are lovely but if you’re really really hungry something like this would be a lot better so if anyone would like to participate bring it to the Student Union’s at either campus and then lastly mommy City College has lost a another retiree employee Barbara her shock who worked here for many many years and if in areas and so if we could have a moment of silence in her memory now do we have any aft bargaining people are you coming rena no okay I’ll trustee committees trustee kellogg do anything I think we’ve exhausted the ad hoc committee do any other committees ok and you took care of all your needs k ft don’t alright schi ok CCA they’re all voting alright so any future opportunity to put request reports i think we’ve gotten that too so we and public comments on agenda items ok this meeting is adjourned until the next meeting and december 13 here in t 1100 closed session and for open session at 5i moving German
