Report on Governor’s Career Technical Education Initiative Lauds CC
Cypress College has been individually recognized in a report on the Governor’s Career Technical Education Initiative. The report — issued last month — was presented to the California Legislature, the Governor, and the Director of Finance.
The following is excerpted from the report, beginning on page 5.[Grant projects], focused on career areas such as Advanced
Transportation Technology, are a main element of the Governor’s CTE Initiative efforts. Reported results include this example:
Cypress College Quick Start Grant provided comprehensive
partnerships that increased training on hybrid and alternative fuel technologies.
George Colletti, Area Manager, Toyota Technical Education Network (T-TEN), asserts that the Cypress College/Quick Start Grant Web-site (http://votech.cypresscollege.edu/~autotech/) was the best of all T-TEN schools in the nation. The Cypress College Quick Start Program has also formed very strong partnerships with Mazda USA, Matco Tools, Snap-on Tools, and the California Motor Car Dealers Association. Steve Ford, Southern California Director, in association with Quick Start representatives from Cypress College, is establishing student internship positions within their dealership network.
Steve Donley, Project Administrator, attributes the success of the ATTE and Quick Start grants to the hard work and talent of Marty Orozco, the project Director.
Cypress College’s Quick Start Grant for Advanced Transportation Technology is presented to Gov. Schwarzenegger as a model.

Reassigned Time Task Force Recommendations to be Discussed at PAC on Sept. 6The Reassigned Time Task Force made the following recommendations in May that will be discussed at the September President’s Advisory
Cabinet meeting. Those who wish to comment on the proposal should share their thoughts with the appropriate representative(s) on PAC.1. Implement “Reassigned Time Guidelines for Department Coordinators.”2. “Responsibilities of a Department Coordinator” be part of the agreement when faculty accepts the responsibility to be a Department coor-
dinator.3. An evaluation of the recommended allocation model take place in 2010.
Cypress College Campus Website Redesign Project Underway; Launch Late Next SpringAt opening day, Rick Rams, Dean of Student Support Services
provided a quick update on the campus web-redesign project. As reported, the Campus Technology Subcommittee selected Datatel’s Activecampus 2.0 in Spring 2007 as the software product that will enhance and improve our campus website.
The initial discovery phase of the project is underway. This phase is technologically intensive. Frank Smith, Director of Campus Information Technology, will get the software and server specifications so the product can be installed.
Later in the semester, the committee will working on establishing the timeline and implementation guidelines for this project—including training for users such as faculty and staff.
By late-Spring 2008, the new website will be launched. Updates on this project will be posted in @Cypress. Be sure to stay tuned.
Members of the Campus Technology Subcommittee on Web Redesign include: Jessica Puma, Frank Smith, Mike Mounier, Ed Giardina, Michael Johnson, Robert Johnson, Deann Burch, Marc Posner, and Rick Rams.

Report on the Governor’sCareer Technical Education Initiative
- 5 -
Specific Models/Overview of Implementation
In general, California’s communities have exhibited a strong demand for the opportunitiesoffered through the Governor’s CTE Initiative. Although Requests for Applications (RFAs)were written with rather high eligibility requirements and performance demands, many moreapplications were received and eligible for funding than were funded. In other words, there wasa high demand for a finite number of grants. For example, during the first round of the first yearof funding, 147 total applications were received from partnerships, with 117 meeting thequalifications for funding. Resources provided in the budget allowed for funding 45 grants, wellbelow half of those eligible. (See Appendix 4 for details on funding.) The oversubscription ofthe funds demonstrates a continued need for such targeted funding and indicates a compellingneed for additional resources. Furthermore, California’s economy – indeed the nation’seconomy – currently is continually and rapidly evolving with new occupations and/or newtechnology in established occupations. Changes create a parallel need in California’s CTEsystem for both more courses and career pathways and improvements in existing CTE efforts tokeep pace with the changing skills demands.
Quick Start Projects - Through competitive design, many local projects feature high skill,emerging industry Career Technical Education. (See Appendix 1 for a complete compilation ofprojects, based on regional distribution.) In addition to the outcomes of the aforementionedBiotech Boot Camp project, strong partnerships are being formed and regional priorities targeted.For example, in 2006, Grossmont College received a two-year Quick Start grant to establish aRegional Allied Health and Science Initiative (RAHSI). A Regional Healthcare Education Ad-Hoc Advisory Board was assembled. At its first meeting, the following objectives wereidentified:
• Support existing and potential school pathway programs;• Maximize funding potential;• Provide networking opportunities for both schools and industry decision makers;• Expand career exploration activities and programs; and,• Discuss local industry recognition of health pathway graduates.
Since the grant was awarded, most high schools in San Diego County are creating Health CareerPathway Programs, which engage students in a rigorous and relevant sequence of courses andsupport transition into college programs that address healthcare workforce needs. The core of theproject is to focus on redesigning high school curricula to incorporate:
• Healthcare applications;• Career Exploration activities;• State Biology and Healthcare Standards and• Industry Skills.
Similar projects, focused on career areas such as Advanced Transportation Technology, are amain element of the Governor’s CTE Initiative efforts. Reported results include this example:
Cypress College Quick Start Grant provided comprehensive partnershipsthat increased training on hybrid and alternative fuel technologies.
Report on the Governor’sCareer Technical Education Initiative
George Colletti, Area Manager, Toyota Technical Education Network (T-TEN), asserts that the Cypress College/Quick Start Grant Web-site(http://votech.cypresscollege.edu/~autotech/) was the best of all T-TENschools in the nation. The Cypress College Quick Start Program has alsoformed very strong partnerships with Mazda USA, Matco Tools, Snap-onTools, and the California Motor Car Dealers Association. Steve Ford,Southern California Director, in association with Quick Startrepresentatives from Cypress College, is establishing student internshippositions within their dealership network.
Immediate outcomes include:
• High school students have been granted special admittance to Cypress CollegeAutomotive Technology Program. (26 new high school students have enrolled)
• The Cypress College Automotive Technology Department is offering NationalAutomotive Technicians Education Foundation (NATEF) certification workshops forlocal High School campuses. Forty faculty have attended this “train-the-trainer”event.
• From September 2006 to May 2007, over 400 new students have received anoverview/orientation of career opportunity in the transportation field.
Another indicator of the industry demand for programs that respond to workforce preparationdemands is the amount of industry match the programs generate. During the first year ofimplementation, the Quick Starts greatly exceeded the required 30% match, either cash or in-kind. In actuality, the grants generated a 94% match ($11,092,469 match/$11,797,400 grantfunds). Because these first projects targeted high demand, high skills occupations, which werealigned with economic development strategic priorities, industry match as well as activeparticipation in the project, was high.
In addition to the Quick Start Projects, grants have been awarded to regional partnerships for thepurpose of strengthening CTE programs. The Strengthening of CTE Program grants are anassessment of the capacity of high schools and community colleges to engage in, and support,effective, integrated, four-year programs of career and technical preparation. Selectedpreliminary findings from these funded projects to date are detailed in Appendix 2.
Although we believe that a comprehensive assessment would be premature, due to the length oftime required to establish and evaluate results from integrated four-year programs of career andtechnical preparation, preliminary findings foreshadow positive outcomes. The independentevaluation of the Governor’s CTE Initiative projects should further our understanding ofprogram success as well as weaknesses to overcome. In the longer term, the Evaluation Projectfor Governor’s CTE Initiative implementation will provide greater insights into projectoutcomes. Through a competitive grant awarded to WestEd (using a community college fiscalagent) the project will be analyzed, both formatively and comprehensively, along with anempirical longitudinal study of participants.

MEMOTO: PACFROM: Reassigned Time Task ForceSUBJECT: Recommendation for reassigned time for Department CoordinatorsDATE: May 17, 2007
The Reassigned Time Task Force was a committee established by President’s Advisory Cabinet and wascomposed of the following members: Cherie Dickey, Steve Donley, Steve Gold, Rob Johnson, Ina Rydalch,Dan Snook, Mike Kasler, and Carol Welsh. The Task Force was charged with the followingresponsibilities:
Recommend guidelines for equitable distribution of reassigned time for Department Coordinators.Recommend “general” job responsibilities for areas allocated reassigned time.Recommend guidelines for equitable distribution of reassigned time for other campus related programs.
Time constraints restricted the committee to address only the first two areas: distribution of reassigned timeand “general” job responsibilities for department coordinators. Reassigned time for other campus relatedprograms will be addressed during the 2007-2008 academic year.
Department coordinators and all other faculty are assumed to work a 40-hour week when teaching a fullload of 15 units. As an example of reassigned time, 3 units or 20% of load equals 8 hours per week. Over a35-week academic year, that totals 280 hours of reassigned time.
We realize that many department coordinators put in many more hours than they receive in reassigned time,and often they do so during their summer “vacations” and semester breaks. While we have recommendedmore reassigned time and tried to make the distribution more equitable, it is not economically feasible tocompensate coordinators for all the hours they put in, and we want to express our sincere appreciation fortheir efforts over and above what they receive in reassigned time.
The committee met on 14 occasions, totaling about 22 hours, reviewing and discussing the data and otherinformation collected internally and from other colleges. This does not include the additional time spent byeach committee member on a variety of research tasks and other assignments throughout the process.
The committee quickly realized that the activities of the department coordinators vary greatly due to manyfactors, including the following:
a) The instructional environment and methodologies used in the department.b) The number of full-time and part-time faculty in the department.c) The frequency and extent of curriculum changes.d) The accreditation requirements of the department.e) The equipment and supplies used by the department.f) The expectations of the Division Dean.g) The willingness of the Coordinator to take on important but non-assigned tasks.h) The need for communication and interaction with students and the public outside of the
classroom.i) Labs, performances, and other non-classroom student activities.
j) The need for the department to recruit.
The committee made use of all of the following to reach its conclusions:1. The present allocation of reassigned time for department coordinators and the dollar expenditure
from the general fund.2. The available reassigned time and professional expert pay from categorical funds.3. The methods for determining reassigned time used by other colleges.4. The responsibilities/expectations associated with reassigned time, i.e., IQA, state licensing,
accreditation, certification compliances, adjunct evaluations, etc.5. The information provided by the department coordinators and compiled by the Academic Senate
President during the fall of 2006.6. The survey information provided by division deans and department coordinators.7. Interviews with division deans to review and clarify information in #6 and answer specific
questions committee members had regarding various coordinator responsibilities.8. Availability of resources.
It should be noted that the recommendation for total allocation of reassigned time for departmentcoordinators represents an increase of 57% over the college’s current level of reassigned time, and anadditional expense to the campus of approximately $116,521.00.
The Reassigned Time Task Force makes the following recommendation to address the first two areas thecommittee was asked to focus on:
1. Implement the attached “Reassigned Time Guidelines for Department Coordinators” in the2007-2008 academic year, effective Fall 2007.
2. Include the “Responsibilities of a Department Coordinator” as part of the agreement whenfaculty accepts the responsibility to be a Department coordinator.
3. The Committee also recommends that an evaluation of the recommended allocation modeltake place in 2010 to determine if modifications/adjustments need to be made to theallocation of reassigned time and/or responsibilities for department coordinators.
Representatives from all of the District-sponsored health and dental plans will be available to answer questions and obtain information regarding upcoming health and dental changes.

California Community Colleges Board of Governors Appoints Dr. Diane Woodruff Interim Chancellor
‘First woman to lead the largest higher educational system in the world’
SACRAMENTO – The Board of Governors (BOG) of the California Community Colleges has appointed Dr. Diane Woodruff as Interim Chancellor, announced BOG President Kay Albiani. “The Board of Governors has made an historic decision by naming the first woman to lead the largest higher educational system in the world,” said BOG President Albiani. “We, as a Board, are impressed with Dr. Woodruff’s executive experience, management style, administrative background, breadth of knowledge of our community college system and commitment to students.” Interim Chancellor Woodruff served as the Superintendent/President of the Napa Valley College for ten years, prior to coming to the Community College League of California where she served as Interim President/CEO and Vice President. In addition to her CEO positions, she has more than 25 years of experience in community colleges at the following levels: faculty, dean, and vice president of instruction and student services. “Diane’s experience has enabled her to see things from both a local and a statewide perspective,” said Charles Meng, a member of the Napa Valley College district board of trustees and board member of the California Community College Trustees Association. “She will bring that same approach in her role as Chancellor. She has a wonderful ability to get a group of people working together towards a common goal. You are very lucky to have her as your Interim Chancellor.” Joan Bennett, former trustee for Napa Valley College and vice mayor of the City of American Canyon, said she is also pleased at the BOG’s decision. “It is rare to find someone with Diane’s people skills and technical skills. She will do a fantastic job in her new role,” she said. Woodruff received her bachelor of arts and masters degrees at the University of California, Berkeley. She received her Ed.D. from the University of Southern California in 1979. Woodruff was a specialist in the Chancellor’s Office from 1980 to 1983. “It is a real honor to return to the Chancellor’s Office to serve as Interim Chancellor,” Woodruff said. “I am passionate about the mission of California’s community colleges and our role in providing the highest quality
- 1 -
instruction and student services to our 2.5 million students. Community college education has been my life’s work. I have seen first hand the difference that community colleges make in our students’ lives and our impact on the economic health and vitality of California.” Dr. Woodruff will succeed Chancellor Marshall (Mark) Drummond, who announced his resignation to become Chancellor of the Los Angeles Community College District later this month. Woodruff’s appointment begins August 1, 2007. She is expected to serve for approximately one year. BOG President Albiani said that now that an Interim Chancellor has been appointed, the BOG will conduct a nationwide search for a permanent Chancellor. The Interim Chancellor’s annual salary will be $192,000. Woodruff said that she looks forward to working with the Board of Governors, system leaders, the legislature and the Governor to keep the colleges moving forward in service to California. “I welcome this new challenge and hope to make a positive contribution during this transition period. I will do my best to carry on the excellent work of Chancellor Drummond.” The California Community Colleges is the largest higher educational system in the nation comprised of 72 districts and 109 colleges with more than 2.5 million students per year. Community colleges supply workforce training and basic skills education, prepare students for transfer to four-year institutions and offer opportunities for personal enrichment and lifelong learning. The System Office provides leadership, advocacy and support under the direction of the Board of Governors of the California Community Colleges.

Dr. Kasler speaks at Opening Day 2007-2008, his first as President of Cypress College (left).
Student Mario Chairez talked about his past and the support he has found here at Cypress College (bottom center).
Dr. Kasler was a contestant on “The Newlypres Game” with host Roberta Eubanks (lower left).
Opening Day closed out with the series finale of “The Cypranos.” In this scene (lower right) Pat Ganer waits for Dr. Kasler to arrive. She asked him to share the most important thing about his first Opening Day — unfortunately, all the lights, audio and projection went out, so we never really got to see the end. It must have been art imitating life.
