The CCE has filed Unfair Practice Charges against the Palomar Community College District. The primary basis for these charges is a document dated February 9, 1998, which was distributed by the District to all employees. This document, which has been commonly referred to as the "green sheet," contained information that pertained to negotiations between the CCE/AFT and the District. It is my sincere hope that this unfortunate position that we find ourselves in will soon come to pass. Thank you."

5. INFORMATION

Report of the Associated Student Government

6. INFORMATION

Report of Superintendent

Dr. Boggs reported that he had the pleasure of going to Sacramento yesterday to see Barbara Schnelker receive her Hayward Award. It was a very nice occasion, and she was a very deserving faculty member. He thanked the Faculty Senate for nominating such a deserving candidate. Barbara was also recently included in the 1998 edition of Who's Who Among America's Teachers. Only five percent of the nation's teachers are named to this journal. Only high school and college students who have been cited for academic excellence themselves in Who's Who Among American High School Students or the National Dean's List are invited to nominate one teacher from their entire academic experience. We are proud of Barbara.

At the last meeting, it was mentioned that the Learning Paradigm video had won an award. The award was the "Best Video in the Instructional Category for Large Institutions." It was given to us by the Community College Association for Instruction and Technology, which is a subset of the Association for Educational Communications and Technology. Lisa Faas from our ETV Department accepted the award at the national conference in St. Louis.

Dr. Boggs reported that John Woods, Director of Athletics, is being inducted into the Division 2 NCAA Wrestling Hall of Fame on Thursday in Pueblo, Colorado. John was a wrestler for Cal-Poly San Luis Obispo, and he won the national title for Division 2 in 1969. He was also the runner-up for Division 1 that year. John was a Coach at Palomar prior to becoming Athletic Director. His record in coaching wrestling at Palomar is 179 wins, 19 losses, and three ties, for a career record. Our teams have won five state titles and John was selected four times as the national community college Coach of the Year. We are proud of John.

One of our students, Eric Neitzel, has been named the 1997 Disabled Athlete of the Year by the San Diego Hall of Champions. Eric is a 21-year-old Graphic Communications student. In 1997, he was the first American finisher in the Wheelchair Division of the Boston Marathon. He has won 23 wheelchair races in which he competed, including the San Diego Marathon. He has been all over the world competing in races. We are very proud of Eric for receiving this honor.

Dr. Boggs notified the Board that we have been informed by the State that July 4, which is a Saturday this year, is not a holiday. July 3 is the official holiday for the State this year. We had assumed that the fourth would be holiday when we developed our calendar, so we will need to make up some time this summer. It has been decided to add Saturday, June 20, at the start of summer session.

Dr. Boggs reported that he has a complimentary registration for the ACCT Western Pacific Region Seminar, June 3-6, which will be held in Sun Valley, Idaho, which he is unable to use. He asked that if a Board member would be interested in using it.

The District and CCE/AFT had a mediation session scheduled for March 20, but that has been postponed at the request of CCE because their field rep has a previously scheduled appointment for that day. The session will be rescheduled, probably for mid-April.

N. COMMENTS FROM BOARD MEMBERS

Mr. Jensen welcomed Dr. Mitchell.

Ms. Hughes stated that she enjoyed the President's Associates reception last week.

Dr. White welcomed Dr. Mitchell.

Dr. Dougherty reported that he had met with Diane Michael, Mark Vernoy, and Bruce Bishop today to discuss plus/minus grading. The subject seems to be more complex than he at first thought. Some students are nervous about how the possibility may affect them. There seem to be many pros and cons to this subject.

Dr. Dougherty recently met with representatives from GEICO, who are moving to Poway. Two of the reasons they want to be in Poway are the excellence of the Poway Unified School District and the excellence of the Palomar Community College District. They are aware that we are planning a Poway campus. They are very community minded and interested in working with the College because we have so much to offer them. He told them we could put on classes at their facility or ours in classes such as computers, Spanish, etc. They seem like the kind of company that will be good for us. Dr. Boggs noted that the groundbreaking ceremony for the new GEICO building is Wednesday, March 18, at 10:30 a.m.

Mr. Scofield noted that plus/minus grading has its pluses and it has its minuses.
