Pardon? – [Virginia] Is your mic on? Yeah, okay, 4.12 I’ve written this little, what am I gonna say, about 500 times since last Friday I support you all, love you all, you’re all passionate, Sunny and Vivian, equally passionate, different ways I know you’re both dedicated to the campus, the students, the community, and what’s going on just breaks my heart, it hurts deeply And so I just have some questions, I know you can’t answer them now,

but maybe they’ll be brought up later What exactly does censoring mean, and what does it entail? Has it happened before at Long Beach City College, and how long is it in effect for? How does this affect accreditation, our students, staff, and community? I just want to say that I’m sure that we’re all different, there’s a lot of truths here, there’s a lot of different faiths and religions and way of being, we all hear things differently But I think we all come here with a common purpose, and that’s to do the best we can for our students, and the College has just been wonderful these last few years under Dr. Romali’s loving, kind ways, and it’s just, I was so excited, and then this crash happened So I’m just hoping that we can take this opportunity that this crisis has brought us to and show people how to make amends and work together, even when we have differences, thank you Thank you, next speaker, please My name’s Anita Tushnet, and I’m very short So I’m here to speak on item 4.12 I actually watched the entire board meeting I was doing other things during most of it, but I did tune in, and my impression was that it began with an honest effort to clarify something very confusing, and it was confusing, and then it went off the rails I think censure is an extreme statement to make about anyone, particularly, again, I’ve read the letters, both from both sides, and I know that Trustee Zia has asked to apologize, and to take any training that is required, and also to participate in a full board retreat Watching the dynamic of the board, I think the full board retreat is what should be done, and I think censure should be taken off the table, and you should work in private with a facilitator to resolve what seem to be pretty deep differences that sort of pop up in weird ways during a meeting So please vote against censure, and go into a board retreat with a facilitator, thank you Thank you very much, next speaker, please Hi, my name is Steve Asken I’m also here to speak about item 4.12 I appreciate what the previous speaker said, but I am gonna add something that relates to the legal obligations of each of the five board members I’m an LBCC parent, I’m also a member of the LBUSD Special Ed Advisory Committee, and as a parent, I really wish that the main reason I was here was to thank this great board for reinstating career education and for providing excellent support for disabled students However, unfortunately, I’m here instead with a lesson in English language and constitutional law regarding Trustee Malauulu’s motion to censure a fellow trustee for blasphemous behavior And saying I’m here to teach a little bit about that, I am neither an English teacher nor a lawyer, so I’m a layperson speaking about this But first the English language, Merriam-Webster defines blasphemy as the act of insulting or showing contempt or lack of reverence for God, not for another human being A Jew quoting the Christian scriptures during an argument might have been censured or worse for blasphemous behavior, which is what the resolution leads off with, in medieval Europe, but never in America today Second, the constitution, the Supreme Court, and I’m gonna urge each of you to look at this before you vote, if this resolution remains on the floor, the Supreme Court long ago ruled very specifically that the leaders of an education agency, in this case, it was the Education Commissioner of the state of New York, may not, in the course of official business, act against something called blasphemy I brought for each trustee copies of the relevant US and California Supreme Court decisions to read before you vote, if there’s somebody I can hand this to, each of you can have a copy Now, in the modern world, I want you to think about this,

in the modern world, only theocracies, such as the land of Trustee Zia’s birth, Iran, ever take action against a supposed offense for blasphemous behavior So I’m here to ask two things, and specifically, I’m addressing this primarily to the Board President, and also to Trustee Zia First, for the Board President, you need to rule out your own motion, you need to recognize that it’s out of order as an offense against the first amendment, which unfortunately is what it is, though I know you didn’t intend that Second, you and Trustee Zia and the rest of the board should sit down with each other in private, apologize to each other if necessary, and get back to the work for which I very much thank both of you, namely continuing to make sure that our City College remains an outstanding provider of career education Thank you very much, next speaker, please Good evening, President Malauulu and President Romali, Board of Trustees, and guests My name is Thomas Hamilton, I’ve been, I worked in the College for 20 plus years, and during those years of service with the College, the priority has always been students’ success And I think that maybe we’ve got off track, as far as what it is our priority is because we all know that if we didn’t have any students, none of us would be here today And let’s just look at the things that we’ve accomplished lately, we’ve had an increase enrollment, we’ve had the largest graduation class in years After the debacle in 2013 with the discontinuance, we’ve now reimplemented (mumbles) back to the College And one of the big things, as far as on a personal matter, is that College Day was held at the PCC campus this year And adding to that, and now the possibility of having free two year college education for students is the cherry on the top, or the whipped cream, okay? When we’re focused on the job at hand that we’re supposed to do, these are the things that we’ve accomplished in less than a year So my question to you tonight is, is what we’re doing tonight serve the best interests of our students and the community, and the public that live within the community, thank you Thank you very much, next speaker, please Hi, I have to read from a script ’cause I have ADD and I tend to veer off, hi (mumbles) Hi, President Trustee Malauulu, trustee board members, President awesome Romali, VPs, and Senate My name is Rena Ping, while I am an employee (mumbles) for LBCC, today I speak as a constituent of area three I reside at 700 East Ocean Boulevard, 90802 There’s no party afterwards, guys I contemplated about speaking up in regards to an article that came from the Long Beach Post August 23rd I was actually at this board meeting, and it was one of the rare ones that I actually attended, and I was like, whoa, and I don’t, I’m outspoken, but I don’t really get involved, so I’m here tonight ’cause I want to get involved So this is in regards to August 23rd, the post that went out ’cause now it’s public, and now I feel like, okay, the public should be informed and I like that because I feel like if you don’t know the information, you can’t make an informative decision to go forward and then continue on with your own decision So this is in regards to board members’ behaviors and treatments of others The leadership on the dais sets the tone for the level of professionalism at LBCC You’re our pretty and smart faces that represent your constituents and what the community sees in regards to the LBCC The cattiness, the bullying, the quid pro quo, the one up is not a good look for you at our college, and you guys lead by example, and I’ve been here for 15 years, I trust you guys I started as a student, and I’m still gonna go forward, all right? So if this is how you conduct business, how do you expect your employees to meet the goals of the college and student success if no one believes in teamwork, professionalism, and self discipline? And that applies to every one of us in here I used to be proud of this dream team and would say, “If they made baseball cards for public officials, “I definitely would want an autographed card “of each trustee,” and I still do, because I believe that what you guys will choose is reflection

over retaliation, right? I implore you to self reflect in regards to why you choose to be a public official and continue to serve hard, altruistically, kind, professional, truth seeking, (mumbles), and the right, even if others will be disappointed And thank you for serving us, it’s no easy task, and I thank you for your time, and I hope for the positive change, thank you Thank you very much, thank all of you for your comments, and thank you all for being here today, we do listen, and we do appreciate you being here At this time, we’re gonna go to item 2.6, approval of minutes of the July 24th, 2019 regular Board of Trustee minutes So moved All right, we have a motion and a second on the floor to approve those minutes, are there any discussions on the minutes? Is there any discussion? All right, all those in favor, please say aye Aye (overlapping chattering) Any opposed? Motion carries, we’d like to move onto item 2.7, Superintendent President report, Dr. Romali, take it away Thank you, Madame President, I’d like to recognize a wonderful professor who is retiring, she couldn’t join us today, Dr. Lynn Shaw, who’s been with us for 19 years She’s an electricity professor, a professor of kinesiology, an FA president, Director of Technology, Education, and an interim dean She’s also been a teacher at Cal State Long Beach, and she was on loan to the Chancellor’s Office for a while, that’s how proudly she served us, so congratulations, Dr. Shaw I’d like to encourage you, another smash up job from Team Josh and Merinda Martin, and the whole, Stacy Tote, and the whole Communications Team You’ve got to pick up a Campus Community I want to encourage you to hear all the great news about Long Beach City College I want to welcome everyone back to the new year We are so glad to start this semester, and to get you in the right mood, we’re gonna cue up, what else at Long Beach City College? A couple of videos (upbeat guitar music) (gentle music) Uh oh, the sound Dario, we’re missing the sound (gentle music) Dario, we’re missing the sound on it (upbeat music) Yeah, (mumbles) try (upbeat music) (glitchy electronic music) (upbeat guitar music) Perhaps before we start the second one, we’ll do the slides while you’re working on the audio there, that’ll give you a chance, to buy us some time there Okay, great, before we get into the second one, we’ll give the team a chance to fix the audio ’cause it’s a super video, we want you to hear everything that is said I want to announce some wonderful things, President Malauulu, you teased it last night in a wonderful way We’ve got things that are totally incredible to tell you tonight, when we announced our graduation figures, we were purposefully conservative We looked at historical trends in fallout,

whether that be a grade failure or a grade change, and so we estimated a little low But we can now announce formally, now that the numbers are in it, we have the largest graduating class in LBCC history And if we go to the next, yes (audience applauds) Now, if we go to the next slide, you’re gonna see what that’s made up of We have an increase in ADT awards by approximately 29% In ’16/’17, we had 753, last year, we increased it to 961, or it increased 28% This year, we increased it to 1,243, an increase of 29% Now, what makes that particularly meaningful is that’s a 26% increase in degree attainment for Hispanic Latino students, it’s a 41% increase in degree attainment for African American students, and an 11% increase for Asian students Now, this is absolutely tremendous I would challenge anyone to look at that kind of a track record nationwide, it’s absolutely unheard of You’ll see movement in the single digits What this is is this is the entire team, Long Beach City College coming together, classified, faculty, senates, unions, administrators, our community, our Board of Trustees coming together for one goal only This is the number that I judge my performance by, what is my job? To get students across the stage What is our job, to get students across the stage How we do it might be a little different, we might have different jobs, but we have the same goals So I’m so excited by this On the next slide, we’ve had other successes If you look at the total number of associates degree awards, you will see that we have increased 25%, another unheard of number In ’16/’17, we had 683, we went down a smidge in ’17/’18, 23 to a negative 3%, in ’18/’19, we went up 25% But what’s blowing it all out of the water is our certificates, we increased 397% We started in ’16/’17 with 219, a small increase in ’17/’18 for 4%, but, well, non believers, here we go, we increased 1,195 certificates last year for an increase of 397% So that’s just absolutely unheard of (audience applauds) We are on a rock and roll train, and we are not stopping until we achieve world domination (audience laughs) I’m not competitive But we did it, all within, we settled three union contracts peaceably, that were happy with our unions and our board On the next slide, you will see that we also saved LBCC a potential cut to our budget of 10.7 million with extreme and heavy lobbying of Sacramento with my colleagues, and all of the people that helped, Jeff Wood, you were instrumental in this savings I like to call you the 10 million dollar man We also, Mrs. Drinkwine, you’re the 11 million dollar woman and the six million dollar woman, and maybe that makes you bionic We decreased the 11 million dollar deficit from last year, the six million dollar operating deficit for this year generated six million dollars in positive fund balance, without any layoffs, and without any ranker Now, I’m not saying that those budget cuts were fun, and everybody just was singing and dancing, but we did it as a team Now, this upcoming academic year, on the next slide, is so exciting, it’s getting off to a great start We had a fantastic College Day at PCC, highest attendance that we’ve had so far The tour of the trades was phenomenal We are up in enrollment for the first time since fall of, I believe ’16 or ’15, 5.7% This is an incredible team effort from virtually everyone within the organization There has been no stone left unturned with our improvements to our organization We opened, we are gonna be groundbreaking soon on our PCC parking structure that’s absolutely gorgeous, and we used savings from this year’s State of a College event technology expenses to fund the seeding of an opening of a Multicultural Office and an Office of Basic Needs that will serve our students who are hungry and who have transportation needs, thanks to members of this board who came forward with ideas for transportation, and for housing,

and for our homeless students And last but most certainly not least, the trades are back, I want to thank Jean Carbonaro, Anthony Pagon, and the whole team for putting together a tremendous, they redesigned every single curriculum We’ve got new curriculum in electrical technology, welding technology, advanced automotive technology, advanced manufacturing, you name it This is the place to be, in case it’s not just dramatically obvious Viking Football, well, they’re not gonna allow something to happen around here without them doing something, right? They’re kicking off on September 14th I want you to be at that home opener against Mount Sac Guess what, students, faculty, staff, and a guest, you’re going for free, the game starts at six Congratulations to Cordoba Corporation’s Terrance DeGray, we all know him and love him, he is the recipient of the Construction Management Association of America’s Medi Hidari CCM of the Year Award We’re excited that our own team members are being recognized on a national level We want to welcome our new foundation director and thank our Foundation for the wonderful selection of Paul Comenski, who was recently selected as the executive director Don’t forget, September 10th, there is a Long Beach Community Job Fair from 10 to two at Vet’s Stadium We’re gonna be hosting over 100 direct hire employers Guess what, there’s gonna be over 2,000 job seekers there, get there, get a job Now, we’re gonna bring up one last video, I think we might have some luck with the audio, Dario? (upbeat piano music) How cute (upbeat guitar music) (gentle music) So we’re out today on the first day of school, first day of classes here at Long Beach City College, and we are excited, so we’re gonna just get out and take a look and see what’s going on, making sure that our students here, our new student Vikings are very well taken care of Let’s see what happens Hi, so first day, what do you think so far? I think it’s really nice, I like how it’s really clean I was just looking for a nearby college, and I saw that it’s really nice, and the environment looks really friendly, so I decided to apply here So the Outreach Department is here to help all of our students with our Ask Me Booths on both campuses, so it’s definitely a place to stop and really get all your questions answered Hey, let me ask you something, what, Ask Me, what do you do for the campus on the first day, how does this work? It was just a way of getting the students who need direction to say, “Hey, let’s ask him,” and so that’s what we do What advice would you give a first time enrollee, and or a returning student? Yeah, I would say that this is the first day of the rest of your life, we believe in you, you have a full campus community supporting you So don’t hesitate to stop to ask any of us, and on the faculty or staff, we want to make sure that you’re gonna be successful Anything else you want to add? Definitely take a breath, it may seem overwhelming, but as long as you’re breathing and you’re sure of your steps, you should be fine – [Host] Is there anything else you would like to add? Go Vikings I would like to say, go Vikings (audience cheers) (upbeat music) Yay (audience applauds) That was great (audience applauds) Thank you so much, Dario, you’re awesome So I just want to say thank you to everyone, to our community, to our board, to our faculty, classified staff, our CHI, I see Karen out there in the audience, our administrators All of this happens because of you We’re going to focus on student success this year, like we do every year, I’m so excited And I’m getting all kinds of texts from the football team right now, so I’m laying down the gauntlet to Coach Peabody to bring home a win on September 14th So let’s bring it on home, go Vikings, and that concludes my report, Madame President That was an awesome report, thank you very much, and I’m glad you replayed it ’cause I was gonna ask you once we got the audio to replay it again So I would like to comment on Jerome’s journalistic debut

I know Jerome is on the back, working the screen, so he’s not gonna turn it into a selfie, but when you see him around campus, it’s customary for the camera person to stay behind the scenes, it’s very unusual to have the camera person go out into the field with a microphone and ask such excellent questions, Jerome, so great job, you make us very proud Thank you very much Dr. Romali, I have one question on slide six of your report, is it possible to bring that slide back up? Okay, I just have a question, I don’t see it on my screen, I don’t know if it’s, Dario, is it coming up? – [Reagan] Is that the one, the upcoming year? I think it’s slide six, let’s see Yes, so I have a question regarding the opening of the Multicultural Office, the funding You mentioned that that was, and by the way, if you missed the State of the College event that we had in July, you missed a very special event We’ve talked about it at the July meeting, but you mentioned that that was funded through savings from State of the College? I just want some clarity, is the Foundation still funding the State of the College? Yes, they absolutely are, they have been a tremendous, tremendous supporter of the college Typically in the past, the Foundation has been extremely generous with us, and they’ve given us approximately $50,000.00 for the State of the College We wanted to challenge ourselves this year, we wanted to be able to save the Foundation the money so that they could then drive that money back into student success, which they’re so wonderful at doing So we challenged ourselves to get down under that $50,000.00 number, and I made a commitment out of my funds that anything we saved, I was gonna put towards, out of my account in the college, toward the opening of the Multicultural Office and Office of Basic Needs So that kept us inspired when we were getting very tight with our pencil, and it allowed the Foundation to use a couple bucks fewer to drive that back towards students, and we’re super proud of that Okay, so just to be clear, the Multicultural Office and the Office of Basic Needs is being funded by the Foundation? No, it’s being seeded by the general fund, and it will be paid for from the general fund, and potentially some grand money, as well, perhaps seed equity dollars, as well Okay, got it, I just want to make sure we’re not putting the wrong information out there So the money that was saved by having a smaller, more intimate State of the College event is gonna stay with the Foundation, it’ll go back to the Foundation and remain there for the Foundation’s use, which typically, it’s scholarships and faculty scholarships, at staff request But the opening on the Multicultural Office and the Office of Basic Needs will come from Dr. Romali’s fund Either operational dollars, whether they be operational general fund dollars, or some, probably some money coming also from seed or equity dollars, a variety of places probably Okay, got it, thank you, thank you, thank you for clarifying that Sure All right, anyone else on Dr. Romali’s report? Yes, Trustee Malauulu, President Malauulu, I just want to make, leave this slide up, I want to make an observation I’m very pleased, and I’ll speak for myself, that we’re having an Office of Basic Needs But one of the things that drove Trustee Zia and I toward helping homeless students was the first couple of students we helped were in the electrical vehicle program, and that program was discontinued And so there’s a real correlation, I believe, between the trades and homeless students having opportunities And matter of fact, one of the young ladies that we helped, she’s actually working for Danny Tan at the Pacific Coast Campus, and she better be enrolled in those electrical vehicle classes She was in the regular automotive program So I just wanted to show that there was a correlation between the two, and I’m very pleased that we’re doing both Thank you very, very much, Dr. Baxter Anyone else on Dr Romali’s wonderful report, and those great, great numbers? All right, let’s move onto item 2.8, ASB President report, welcome We’ve been anxiously anticipating your first report Hello, hello, thank you very much, Madame Chair, and good evening to everyone I’d like to begin my report by reintroducing myself My name is Alyssa Tenesa Jones, and I am the new ASB President for the school year Firstly, on Friday, August 23rd, the ASB cabinet and I were able to attend College Day at PCC, and we’re happy and excited to visit the various trades that our school has to offer So thank you to Superintendent President Romali for the invitation to the rest of my cabinet I know they were really excited for it

This Monday kickstarted our fall semester, and we’re currently hosting our Week of Welcome to help our students get acclimated to the new semester These past two days, many of us cabinet members were at both campuses, handing out coffee and donuts to help introduce ourselves and get the word out for our upcoming special elections With all of that being said, I’d like to end my report by saying that my cabinet and I are excited to have started the school year not only as students, but also as leaders, thank you Thank you very much I know that you have previously spoken to the board when you were introduced, so it was really nice to actually have a report of some of the activities, and I’m sure ASB is anxious to get started with the school year, and all the activities you have planned So welcome, we look forward to working with you We’re gonna move onto item 2.9, Trustee, Student Trustee Donnell Jones, your report, please? Thank you, welcome back, everybody Thank you for joining us this evening Thank you for those who came out and, again, for participating, as always We appreciate that Summer has been great I was really pleased to hear about the success of the Voyager Program here, and the work that is being done there for the British students coming in, as well as the opportunity for a lot of students to step us as peer mentors, and to work with some of our incoming students I think that’s a really great opportunity to help our incoming students get acclimated, but also our students that are here kind of step up and take on some leadership, and to earn some income in the process I think that was a tremendous idea Also, I wanted to report back, my summer in Purdue University conducting research, I had a great opportunity to work with Dr. Patricia Bowling, who works in policy research, and together, I was able to put together, we were able to put together research design that looked at the issue of food insecurity, and specifically, for me, my interest is looking at food insecurity and how it’s experienced by our students within the community college sector, which seems to be missing from the literature So I’m excited to see that going forward, especially with all the changes that we have been making here to address this issue with the Food Pantry and the Homeless Task Force going forward So I’m hoping that the research that I do going forward will be able to help contribute to those efforts, to make sure that all of our students are served equally and equitably And in closing, I had the opportunity to attend College Day and the Week of Welcome, and I’m looking forward to doing more and advocating on behalf of our students moving forward Very good, thank you, Student Trustee Donnell Jones Item 2.10, LBCCFA Bargaining President report, welcome Hello, everyone Board President Malauulu, board members, President Superintendent Romali, and others This week is the first week of the academic year There has been a palpable energy and excitement on campus by students, faculty, and the campus community College Day was a true celebration, a culmination of everyone’s hard work Enrollment is up, recruitment, but in particular, from the high schools with full-time student enrollment, and graduation rates have increased I would like to acknowledge that none of this could have been done without the hard work of our campus community, and the leadership of our President Superintendent Dr. Romali, everyone pulling together for our students Faculty has been hard at work all year trying to redesign course work to meet the requirements of AB705, math boot camps were created to assist students during the summer Counselors were teaching orientation and career exploration classes, and how could I not mention but my personal favorite, the trades are back? All of this took time, devotion, and the professionalism of faculty and others Now faculty is excited to implement the fruits of their work, and inspire our students Last May, we were pleased to have 33 faculty enter the ranks of tenured status, and have had the pleasure of hiring 14 new faculty members FA offered presentations to the new faculty at their orientation, and is busy engaging our faculty, new and old, in leadership positions, giving a direct voice

in how faculty success is student success I would now like to introduce Dr. Alma Bochua, who is in her second year at the college, and is the probationary faculty representative, and holds a seat on our Executive Board Alma’s position requires her to reach out to our new faculty and assist them in any way she can in helping them to be successful She will attend a few College Culture Fridays, sharing her experience of her first year at Long Beach City College, and explaining the steps of the tenure review process from the faculty perspective So now, let me introduce Dr. Alma Bochua, from the Anthropology Department, and our probationary faculty rep Thank you, good evening, everybody Dianne just wants me to tell you a little bit about myself, in terms of, well, you already know my department is anthropology Some of the classes that I teach are our most popular, magic, witchcraft, and religion, and cultural anthropology, I’m a cultural anthropologist by trade I’ve taught several places back east, before I came to the west, I taught at Howard University, University of Maryland in Baltimore County, Purdue University, DePaul University, which is a small liberal arts college Then I was called to community college, and I went to Arizona, and I taught at Paradise Valley Community College, which is part of a 10 year community college Maracopa System And then I made up my mind, I don’t want cold weather anymore, so it’s either gonna be California or Arizona, and Arizona wasn’t working, so when I saw this job, I applied, and that was the best thing that ever happened to me I mean, I’m not telling you just because this is your school, but this is the best place for me to be because I’m committed to colleges that are about student-centered environments That’s what I like, I like dealing with students and the whole education process Now, Dianne wants also for me to tell you how I got interested in anthropology It was actually through an archeological project in New York, very close to the World Trade Center some years ago, and it was called the African Burial Ground Project And during the process of building a government office, at 290 Broadway, very close to Wall Street, they did a historical investigation and found out that it had been an African burial ground, a burial ground for people of African descent during the 1700s, from 1703 to 1794 Well, once they found out that it had been in use, they had to do a core sample, they found intact burials There had been at least 10 to 20,000 people of African descent buried there in the 1700s And then they did a full excavation, and part of my job was to do public education, very similar to teaching, where we talked about the history, we kept the project going, and now it is a national historic monument right now And that’s what really got me into anthropology And I had to go back to school, I had to just switch careers, and it was probably the best thing I ever did So thank you for listening, and glad to be here Thank you very much, thank both of you (audience applauds) All right, we’ll go to item 2.11, the AFT bargaining report, there you go Thank you, welcome Thank you, Madame President, and Board of Directors, and Superintendent Romali, and others We wanted to say we were really happy to be working with Dr. Romali in her (mumbles) course for race and equity, we feel this is a positive step for all the employees for the college, to have faith in a good workforce and environment to work in We also think this’ll also benefit the student population, as well, since we all know we have a very diverse population So any kind of training, the staff, and the whole college get, it ends up being for our students in the longterm I also wanted to bring up, on a minor note,

that the AFT Union always supports benefits for all our employees I know you have an item coming up later, I just wanted to say that AFT supports all members of the people that work for the college to have health insurance and health benefits, and we want to support that as much as we can through all our (mumbles) Thank you, have a good evening Thank you very much, item 2.12, the Certificated Hourly Instructor bargaining report, welcome Good evening, Superintendent President Romali and Board President Malauulu, Board of Trustees, and guests I want to start off first with a great big thank you to Dr. Scott We had an amazing part-time faculty orientation, and as you know, last year Dr. Scott decided that it would be best to have as many part timers presenting on a panel as possible And that is just a really great idea, it’s so wonderful to be in a venue where we’re hearing from our own part-time faculty about what they’re doing in their classes So, and thank you for being so inclusive of CHI, as well, thank you As you’ve probably heard, we’re going through a bit of a transition right now, I am stepping down I’ve stepped down, I’m trying to step down. (laughs) (audience laughs) And we’ve extended the CHI Executive Board elections into the fall to give all part-time faculty an opportunity to become members of CHI, and to put their name forward in the nomination process So we will be having an election But I think for those of you who taught part time know this is just part of, part timers are not here a lot on campus, so what the union is doing is not always right on their radar So we’re gonna, we have a few people that I think are very interested, so just be patient with us because I definitely think that we will have a regular report to the board as soon as the dust settles from everything But I do want to reassure you that CHI is still a viable union, and we are here to support all our part-time faculty as reps with whatever is going on, and I just want to reassure you about that We are communicating with our members on a regular basis, as well So as you know, we are currently in negotiations with the district, and also working with the district on a few issues, as we do There was a great turnout of part-time faculty at the College Day CHI meeting, and that was really great, to see everybody turn out I’m gonna say, though, that there was one issue in particular that was really on everybody’s mind, they didn’t need any prompting from me at all, it just came out, and it was a big discussion And that has to do with the fact that we’re being asked to do mandatory trainings, sexual harassment update, without additional pay And so we discussed that, I assured them that CHI will continue working with the district on this issue, it’s not over yet, so for them to just hang in there Another issue coming to the forefront that we’re hearing about, and I don’t know if it’s true or not, and that is about classified staff being told they’re no longer going to be allowed to teach part time at LBCC We went through this several years ago, and I remember the chaos, and finally the dust settled, and it seemed like it was all going to be just fine So, I mean, I think this is a little bit frustrating to me because we all know the reality of the budget, the budgets are made on the backs of part-time faculty, we don’t have health benefits, we come and we go, for most of us, we’re working two or three jobs just to make ends meet, essentially And so I just think that if somebody’s working in a classified position, and they have their masters degree or a PhD, why not let them teach? And I understand that it is a higher rate of pay, I do understand that, and that’s probably one of the issues But I’m willing to guess, I’m just guessing, I don’t know for sure, that the combined income of a classified job, plus the teaching at a higher rate,

is still probably less than the average income of full-time faculty I know it’s less than administrative pay So I’m just here to kind of say, hopefully we can think outside the box about this when it comes to treating employees equitably, and with their pay, and so on And speaking of that, there was a classified employee who teaches part time, Deidre Chernell, who could not make it tonight because she’s teaching, and she asked me to read a statement She said, “Before President Oakley left, “he said it was a travesty “that classified staff had been taken out of the classrooms “because at one time, he was classified, “and he supplemented his income with part-time teaching “He was supportive of our classified staff “who had earned their graduate degrees “In fact, on this campus, “classified staff have always been encouraged “to grow and educate themselves “But for the district to decide once again “that we can’t teach part time is like coming up “against an invisible glass ceiling “Many people in our culture have to work two “and three jobs to make ends meet “In addition, they might belong to more than one union “Other college districts, like Los Angeles, “manages their dual assignments with no problem “because they care about not limiting the potential “and growth of their employees “I believe this is what a prized institution does “Choosing to balance the budget on those “who are the lowest wage earners “and the least powerful disunifies all of us “by creating obstacles, it is like saying “that classified staff can only serve in menial roles “at the institution that they have come to admire “Many are also minorities who are desperately needed “in the classroom, as we try to model “for our students what equity looks like “I hope you will reconsider this decision,” and that’s from Deidre Chernell, thank you Thank you, Karen, I’ll have you know, Karen, if I may, and I know it’s not another non-customary item for me to respond, but yesterday, we had a budget workshop It lasted almost four hours, and we were here last night, and one of the items we talked about was once again discussing office hours for adjuncts, so it is something that is on our radar, and it’s something that we’ve been working on And I know that you’ve been trying to step down for a long time, but it might be divine intervention that you just never can, so think about that Thank you, Karen All right, we’re gonna go to item 2.13, reordering of the agenda, are there any requests to reorder the agenda? All right, we’re gonna go to 3.1, board requests to Superintendent President, status updates and additional requests, Dr. Romali? Yes, I’d like to thank, in particular, Trustee Ntuk, who’s been very helpful, as we keep continuing to revise this and make it better and better, and what this does is each month, we bring forward to the Board of Trustees a status of board requests that are either pending or completed Last year, you will see a report that shows the completed board requests for last year, from 2018, 2019, we had a total of 33 requests, one tabled, and one canceled And so there were tremendous amount of achievements that the board achieved last year that I think they can be very, very proud of This year, we have the new requests, we have, for ’19, 2020 requests, and two complete so far, as we enter our new year So we wanted to let you know about these items We do need approval on these items to make sure that indeed they are the priorities that the board wishes to direct the Superintendent and staff to work on, and also, we continue to welcome improvements suggestions, as we look for ways to make it better and more informative Thank you very much, this is an action item and discussion, is there any discussion on Dr. Romali’s board request presentation? Trustee Otto? I at least have one question According to this, in the summer of 2018, I requested a Discover Long Beach event to be held in my district, and there was a report that was apparently sent out, and it’s 15 months later, and I still haven’t had one that’s scheduled, I think, so I wondered if there were other trustees in the same position I just noticed this when I read this this afternoon Good question, good question, I will check on that and get back to you I know that Marcia Parker, our senior director of communications and community partnerships, sent out a calendar, and that she was gonna schedule these and talk with each trustee

I will by all means find out where she is on that and get back to you Okay, great, and there was one other one that was, involved a request of mine, yeah The tracking number is 181939, it was also in the summer of ’18, and that was my request to prepare a score card that showed leading and lagging indicators as to how the college is faring against its strategic plan and enrollment management plan It says that there was a presentation made in December of 2019, is that a typo? It was, it was either December or January, I forget which one it was, but there was a presentation by Heather, she created a score card, Heather Van Volkenberg, and presented it at a board meeting – [Doug] Okay, so, but– I’ll see if I can get a copy of that Yeah, but it wasn’t, it’s not upcoming, it’s already been– It’s already done, and our plan, you’re gonna see tonight on an upcoming board agenda, and this was actually your wonderful idea, the scorecard, in an upcoming agenda, you’re gonna see a calendar of proposed presentations over the next year, and we liked your idea so much and it went so well that we’re gonna do it again with even more improvements for next year as a regular thing, and we’ll do it at the end of each year to see how we did, good, better, otherwise, at the end of each year, and you’ll see one of those on the calendar for tonight Yeah, and then lastly, ’18/’19, 045, was a request to explore, with the Foundation, the possibility that they fund student success initiatives, and it says that in March, you went to the Executive Committee, and the Foundation agreed to fund 35 $1,000.00 scholarships What kind of activities are those? Yes, John Philpa was in charge of that subcommittee of the Foundation, and what happened is the Foundation took a number of applications, and there were a variety of different objectives for submitted by faculty and staff, they did send me a chart so that I could vote on it, and what I did is I picked the ones that I thought were the most interesting And they did award them, but I haven’t gotten the award sheet yet, so I don’t know who the winners were I don’t want to announce them unless they maybe weren’t in the winning pile, but I will be happy to see if we can get that and provide that to you – [Doug] Great, okay, thank you Okay, thank you, Trustee Baxter, and then Student Trustee I just wanted to report that my area event, I just pulled it up on my calendar, hold on a second, my phone went to sleep It went to sleep so much, it isn’t recognizing me Here we go, my event is Wednesday, October 16th So I don’t know, Trustee Otto, if I’m the first, but I’m saying that in public because I know Josh is gonna start working on it right now, so So we have been scheduled, I just don’t know when yours is Thank you, Student Trustee? Hi, just two really quick questions First, thank you, Superintendent President Romali, for addressing the two issues that I did bring up here It looks like the first one, regarding the guide for our homeless student resources was taken care of and completed I had a question regarding the second request made in March of 2019, it looks like, and excuse me if this question has already been answered, I just didn’t see anything, so if it’s already been answered, please disregard So 2027 and 2005, it looks like they are on the agenda for action tonight – [Reagan] Yes I just had a question, what happened with the suggested update to the academic, the administrative regulations 7000 section .6? – [Reagan] Which one was that, do you remember– Regarding the parking for the students, specifically regarding if we can make any updates to allow overnight parking for our students, and I wasn’t sure if that– Which, do you have a number? – [Donnell] It’s regulation 7000 Or do you have a number of the request? It is ’18/’19, 47 47? Yeah, third from the bottom Yes, it was, the legal opinion had been sought, and we brought those to the first reading at the May Board of Trustees meeting, and that motion ANR 7000, are you referring to ANR 7000.6? Correct It was provided for information, the BP 2027, the motion failed, 2005, changes were recommended, and it has been brought back Right, so yeah, I see that those, 2005 and 2027 are both on the agenda for this evening, but I didn’t see any update for 7000.6 Was that addressed in another meeting, or?

06, Gene, do you know anything, want to make? – [Gene] I do not recall that, and that process would have to go through PLC first before it comes back to the board, so we’d have to check to see where we are with that Any changes to regulations would go to the President’s Leadership Council first, and I’m not sure where we are in that process, but we can find out And I’ll find out if it was on the board agenda I’m showing it is complete, which means it would have either come to the agenda, or it came to the agenda and failed, so I’ll see if I can get that answer tonight, at tonight’s meeting – [Donnell] And if we could, thank you Thank you, any other questions or comments for Dr. Romali? Okay, so this is an action item, Dr. Romali, would you have us adopt or accept the list, or what would you have us do? What is the recommendation of staff? Is it your recommendation, Mr. Lipton, that they have a vote to approve it? And then in the meantime, we’ll get their question answered on the, the question that Student Trustee had? Yes, that would be appropriate, if that was the board’s pleasure, to adopt or accept the material as presented by Dr. Romali Okay, so I don’t think a motion to approve it would be in order, right, ’cause it is a fluid document and it’s changing, so to adopt it or to accept it, which is, do you have a preference? Probably to accept it, meaning that’s basically the board has received it, and there hasn’t been any other dissent or comments about it, other than what was presented orally by the board, so I would recommend, if it was the board’s pleasure, to accept it Okay, thank you very much, Mr. Lipton, Trustee Ntuk? Yeah, looking through some of the, we used to have an agenda item where board members could ask to add an agenda item in the future that we no longer have on our agenda This is it, yeah, this is it And my understanding, in the past, at least in the fall semester of 2018, we took, we voted on a number of them So do we need to vote again, even though we’ve already voted to– I think you are correct, in this motion, you can add additional requests It’s agenda, the status updates, and additional requests, so you may feel free, at your pleasure, to add items, and then if you want to add items, it needs, the action, Mr. Lipton, of at least three, correct, if they add items? But there are items on here that are new, so I think we’re gonna need action to get votes to approve this and any potential new ones that may come from the floor ‘Cause this is a report on the status, as well as any requests that have come in after the last board meeting, additional requests I’d like to make a, I’d like to make a distinction between the board making a request, on the one hand, and requesting an item be placed on the agenda And they are actually are two separate things In response to Trustee Ntuk’s comment, any trustee can request to have an item placed on the agenda for action, and that actually doesn’t need to be on the agenda, under the Brown Act, any trustee at any board meeting can ask for an item to be placed on a future agenda But that’s different if the request is to have staff write a report or engage in some activity that’s gonna take some effort on the part of staff, and if that’s the case, that also could be a future agenda item, but that would require a vote of the board I guess, just clarifying, the board had previously voted on some of the items, I’m not sure which ones we did not vote on, and I don’t know if that’s delineated in the list It’s not, it’s not, but there are new ones on there So I do need a consensus to move forward with those – [Uduak-Joe] Okay Okay, so at this time, I’ll entertain a motion, whatever is the pleasure of the board, regarding this item I’ll vote to accept Second It has been moved and seconded to accept Superintendent President Dr. Romali’s status update and additional requests Any discussion on this item? All those in favor? – [Virginia] Aye (overlapping chattering) All those opposed? All right, the motion carries We are moving onto item 4.1, revised board policy and administrative regulation, 2005, student member of the Board of Trustees This is an action item that the board approve

and adopt a revised board policy and administrative regulation regarding the student trustee Dr. Romali, I will defer to you Just trying to get an answer to Trustee Jones’s question, my apologies Okay, the next item is for the student member on the Board of Trustees, and the proposed edit, this was requested by Trustee Donnell Jones And he wanted to have the student be able to make and second motions, as well as cast an advisory vote on matters before the vote, except for motions related to personnel and labor relations, and that the student member should not be allowed to attend closed session material, and it keeps it in philosophy, keeping with the campus’s philosophy in participatory governance, so we are bringing that forward to you tonight for a reading Is that the action? It has already been for first reading, and we are looking at action this evening Okay, yes, this would be the second reading and action item, do you have, Madame Secretary, do you have language for me to read out? On the action item? [Madame Secretary] You read the motion (mumbles) All right, so then I will entertain a motion on this item So moved Second It has been moved and seconded that the board approve and adopt the revised board policy and administrative regulation 2005 for student member of the Board of Trustees as submitted Any discussion on this item? Student Trustee? I just wanted to thank Superintendent President Romali and the board for bringing this back for second reading, and hopefully that this passes, I thank you guys for your commitment, and reaffirming your commitment to the philosophy of participatory governance, and I believe that this modification would allow for better representation of our student voices here at the board Trustee Ntuk? Yeah, I just want to thank Trustee Jones for bringing this forward, I know this is a conversation I think we started last summer about reforming the student trustee role, and then enhance the opportunities that are available in the ed code that we previously hadn’t adopted So I know the first reading was on summer vacation, I think we missed you, but I’m glad you’re here for the second reading, and I think this now allows the student trustee to vote before the rest of the trustees, so we have an idea on what the student perspective before, plus of an enhanced clarification in participation roles And I guess my question, I don’t know, Dr. Romali, or who’s appropriate, so we, this is the second reading, so if it gets adopted tonight, does it go into effect tonight, or does it go in effect the next board meeting? And then does this make us go to role call votes again, to make sure we get the student trustee vote before the rest of us vote? – [Reagan] Mr. Lipton, may we inquire of you? It’s really up to the board as to when it should take effect Unless the board indicates otherwise, any policy that is voted upon takes effect immediately, if that’s not the intent of the board, then that should be made part of the motion Okay, as it stands, the motion is to approve and adopt the revised board policy, but it doesn’t mention if it would go into effect immediately, do any board members have any input or opinion on that? Student Trustee, do you? It would be great if it went into effect immediately, again, in the spirit of, excuse me, participatory governance, however, if it is the board’s pleasure to defer it to the next term, that would be amenable, too Okay, thank you very much, I am amenable to whatever the board decides with that I would like to say, Trustee Jones, that I do applaud you, and I know that we’ve had some very interesting discussions about the work and the changes that you’ve tried to bring forth, and I know that it hasn’t been easy for you, so I appreciate that And also, I’d like to thank Dr. Romali and the staff because several times, it took a little bit of extra work to do the research and to come back with information for, based on student trustees’ requests, and the questions that he had So thank you all for working together to do this, and I think it is something very important,

to include our students in a shared governance process So at this time, any additional discussion? We do have a motion and a second on the floor All those in favor? – [Board Members] Aye Any opposed? The motion carries, congratulations, thank you All right, item 4.2, revised board policy 2027, board member compensation, this is an action item that the Board of Trustees approve and adopt revised policy 2027, board member compensation as submitted This was first read at the May 22nd meeting, it is now presented for approval Is there a motion on this item? (overlapping chattering) – [Sunny] Second It has been moved and seconded, any discussion on this item, Student Trustee? Again, just in keeping with the last one, thanks again, Superintendent Dr. Romali, as well as the board, for bringing this back again One question I did have, if the board, if anybody on the board would like to make the motion to potentially increase the compensation for the student trustee to 50% of the current trustees pay, which would be $200.00, and again, just as with the last one, because this is keeping with participatory governance, and not, I guess, keeping with participatory governance, I would be, I would ask the board to consider this, and potentially even defer it to the next term, if need be, whatever the board would like to do Dr. Romali, I think if we’ve had a discussion on this, and that the amount is set per the ed code, is that correct? Yes The amount is set per ed code, that did come back, I believe that was the discussion at a previous meeting and it failed, and so we looked into it with the ed code, and it’s per ed code – [Donnell] Okay It is allowed a, I believe it is a 5% differential So there’s no wiggle room for negotiation, although your effort is to be commended We have to follow the ed code as is prescribed, and there’s just no wiggle room in what we can do So thank you very much Appreciate it Any additional discussion on the item? All right, at this time I’d like to call for a vote All those in favor, this is to, let’s see, item 4.2, to accept the revised board policy 2027, please say aye – [Board Members] Aye All those opposed, all right, the motion carries Item, item 4.3, revised board policy on administrative regulation 2015, annual organization meeting and board officers I’d like to, let’s see, okay, so per staff, we’re going to pull items 4.3 and 4.7 because our legal counsel has advised us that we have a conflict in the date of the December 9th board meeting that’s December 9th, 2020 We actually cannot have the board reorganization meeting prior to the swearing in and oath of office that the county or the city have to certify elections So that was something that was just brought to our attention by legal counsel today, so because item 4.3 and– [Madame Secretary] Excuse me, President Malauulu? Yes? We would like to keep 4.7 and amend it, pull 4.3, but you said pull both of them, you named them, so– So, yes, when– You’re going to– When you and I spoke in the back, that was the agreement, but then I got this note after, so I didn’t know which one came first ’cause you and I talked about that– [Madame Secretary] Yes, we decided that we would pull the December off, we’ll vote with it without December meeting, and we’ll bring that meeting time back Got it, okay– [Madame Secretary] For separate action All right, so let me start over, let me clarify ’cause we did have a discussion about this in closed session, and I was given a note, so I’m not, I don’t want to confuse anybody, so let’s start all over We are going to pull item 4.3, Madame Secretary, is that correct? That’s correct So we will table that to the September 11th meeting, just so the public is aware, and then we will keep item 4.7, but we will get to that when we get to that [Madame Secretary] That’s correct Any discussion on that? – [Doug] I wanted to clarify that we didn’t discuss it in closed session, it came– Correct And it was information provided, it wasn’t on the agenda

Correct, you’re right, it was not an agenda item, it was a staff information item, per legal And the board didn’t discuss it, and it would have been improper to report out what we didn’t discuss You’re absolutely right, Trustee Otto, thank you for the procedural correction there All right, so we’re gonna move onto, any other discussion on tabling item 4.3? All right, item 4.4, new board policy 2034, committees on the board, this is a discussion and first reading A point, another quick point of order Did you say that we’re going to table it? I know we have to take a vote on tabling it We’re pulling it, right? We’re pulling it, it will come back Okay, so you didn’t mean table it, you mean we’re just gonna pull it– [Madame Secretary] No, it’s not table– Correct, sorry, I misspoke, we are pulling, let me, for the third time, let me start all over on that item, we want to make sure we get this right, I want to make sure that I get this right So item 4.3 is being pulled from the agenda per staff and per legal, and we will continue Thank you, Trustee Otto, any additional discussion on that? Okay, I apologize, I am working off of a couple of notes here and I want to make sure that I report the right information, that I say the right information, okay, are we good? Item 4.4, new board policy, 2034, committees of the board, this is a discussion, non-action item, first reading The new board policy is submitted for a first reading, it’s recommended as a result of our ongoing review to ensure compliance with legal code and align with best practices Does anyone have any discussion on new board policy 2034? Trustee Ntuk? Yeah, I think this is a good thing I think it gives us additional opportunities to have robust discussion, be able to categorize different areas and topics that we should talk about that may help shorten our board meetings down from four or five hours a session to more condensed time, fingers crossed But I’d love to see a Policy Committee, I know we have the Facilities Committee, whatever other committees the board thinks that we should have, and I think it’s a good, I know there’s different structures of committees Sometimes you can have one trustee and staff on a committee, versus two trustees and staff, and so there’s, I’ve seen other districts have multiple configurations, but it sounds like this is just the beginning, that at least creates a foundational policy for us to establish permanent committees So I think this is a good thing – [Vivian] Trustee, Student Trustee Donnell? I just had a quick question regarding the language of this policy here, looking at the second paragraph, it says, “The board committees, which are composed solely “of less than a quorum of members “of the Board of Trustees,” dot dot dot So does this mean that these committees will just be a two person committee? I will defer that to Dr. Romali, or would it be all two person committees, or is it, what the board decides, how many board members would represent on the committee? I’m gonna pull a double deferral and ask Mr. Lipton. (laughs) – [Vivian] So– Mr. Lipton? Mr. Lipton, with regard, Student Trustee Jones asked about the number of board members on the committees Could you please restate your question for the benefit of our legal counsel, please? Certainly, so looking at the language of the first sentence of paragraph two, it says that the board committees, which are composed solely of less than a quorum of members of the Board of Trustees, does that mean that these committees would just consist of two members, and only board members? If I understand Trustee Jones’s question, the second paragraph of board policy 2034 refers to board committees which are composed solely of just two board members, it doesn’t mean that every committee is only composed of two board members, but those that are composed solely of less than a quorum and our advisory are not required to comply with the Brown Act unless they’re standing committees It didn’t mean to suggest that that’s the only type of committee that’s possible Okay Did I answer your question? Right, I believe so, thank you Can I follow up? So there can be a committee with one board member

’cause that’s less than a quorum, right? Well, by definition, a committee consists of more than one person, otherwise, it’s just delegating to a person a particular task, which the board certainly can do, but it wouldn’t legally be considered a committee And I believe it was Orange Coast College, had a committee of staff, a cabinet staff, and a board member that was assigned Does this preclude us from doing that, then? No, it doesn’t, and the question would be whether or not the staff members are actually members of the committee, which they could be, or whether only the trustees are members of the committee But certainly, there could be a committee consisting of a trustee and other staff members, and this policy does not preclude such a committee – [Uduak-Joe] Thank you Thank you, Student Trustee Jones, does that answer your question? That was the question I was trying to ask Thank you, anybody else, any other discussion or question? Any other trustees, okay, so that’s a discussion item for first reading, so it will be back on the September 11th agenda, second reading and action item And now we will move onto item 4.5, new board policy 2035, board membership Once again, this is a discussion item, first reading The same thing, board policy is just being submitted as discussion and first reading for ongoing, to ensure that we are compliant with legal code and align with best practices Any discussion on this item? All right, seeing none, this item, oh, I’m sorry, I didn’t see you – [Donnell] No worries I looked to you first I apologize I did not see you, Student Trustee, okay, go ahead I was looking over the policy one more time, just to make sure that I was asking a relevant question And so the first question I have, two questions, the first one is, does the portion here in section, paragraph three, the employment must be automatically terminated upon being sworn into office, would that clause also apply to the student member of the Board of Trustees? I know that they’re not considered a full trustee, however, would this policy preclude them from being employees of the district? Well, I don’t know the answer to that Mr. Lipton will answer that, if the student trustee is able to serve being an employee, right, if I understand your question correctly But I do remember having had student trustees who were employed by the district and continue serving as student trustees But I don’t know if there’s policy – [Donnell] Right Is there a conflict with the language saying work study? That’s a great question, by the way Thank you Well, the first paragraph of board policy 2035 specifically provides that this policy pertains only to the five elected trustees, and in fact, there is no restriction on the student trustee being an employee, so long as the student trustee otherwise qualifies under the law to be the student trustee There’s no prohibition about the student trustee being an employee, although if the student trustee were an employee, there may be situations where they may be precluded from making a motion or seconding a motion if there were a conflict, due to their employment So would it be appropriate for a student trustee to recuse him or herself if an item were to arise, but continue working for the district, continue serving as a student trustee, but then just when an item that presents a conflict arises, he or she would just recuse himself or herself? Yes, that’s right, for example, if the student trustee were a student worker and there were an item on the board to change the conditions of student employees or to increase the salary of student employees, the student trustee should not participate as a trustee in that vote – [Vivian] Thank you very much – [Donnell] And then I had one more– Go ahead One more question that regards the five elected members of the board, looking at the last paragraph, where it says, “No member of the board shall, “during the term for which he or she was elected, “be eligible to serve on the governing board “of a school district whose boundaries are coterminous “with those of the district.” Would that apply in the situation, I guess, would this clause preclude a trustee who would hypothetically be considering running, not running for reelection here on our board,

but running for election of another board at the end of their term, would this mean that they would be ineligible to do that, to do so? I don’t know if that question was clear – [Vivian] Mr. Lipton? (overlapping chattering) We’re keeping you busy tonight, Mr. Lipton You know what, actually, Trustee Baxter just reminded me that my own predecessor was serving as trustee of area two when he was elected to City Council, district seven, and he served his term until he was sworn in as city councilman, and then there was an appointment process So I don’t know if that answers your question, but you did say the five sitting trustees, so I guess we do have a precedent that was set then Well, there’s no legal problem, so long as the same person is not concurrently actually serving in both elected offices, it’s not a conflict or a violation of this policy or law for, say, a member of the Board of Trustees to be elected to another office, city council, or school board, so long as they’re not serving in both offices concurrently Okay, thank you (overlapping chattering) – [Mr. Lipton] It’s called doctrine of incompatible offices (overlapping chattering) Thank you very much, do you have any other questions, Trustee Ntuk? – [Uduak-Joe] Just a different topic Stay there. (laughs) On the part-time faculty portion there, I think it’s paragraph four, so if someone was teaching before and they got elected, they could still teach one three unit class, but if you weren’t teaching before and you got elected, you can’t teach a three unit class, is that what that means? That’s correct, if they’re previously, just as you stated, Trustee Ntuk, if they previously were employed as a part-time instructor, and then elected or appointed to the board, they could continue in that capacity Okay, thank you Well, that was a conflict for me, because I was teaching part time, and I had to step down, so Yeah, Ginny also, Trustee Baxter, also, so yeah, we’ve got some examples sitting here Any additional discussion on that item? Okay, so that is a discussion in first reading, it will return on the September 11th agenda So now we are going to item 4.6, and this is my appointment to the Facility Subcommittee, and I have spoken to Trustee, Vice President Trustee Ntuk, and Trustee Dr. Ginny Baxter, and they have both expressed an interest in serving on the Facility Subcommittee So Madame Secretary, those are my two appointments That is an action item, any discussion on either of those appointments? Can somebody clarify for me when the board voted on the establishment of a Facilities Subcommittee? – [Vivian] That is a great question Does anyone know the answer, Trustee Ntuk? I believe we voted on it in August of 2018, and again, I think in September of 2018 It was the end of last summer that the idea came up and was voted on, I believe it was voted on, but check the minutes, I guess I believe you made the appointments last September, 2018 The establishment So if– Specifically remember talking about it in August of last year So if we made the appointment in September, then that means that we would have had a first reading discussion in August, maybe second reading discussion, September, would that not have happened? We, Trustee Ntuk, we will check and get back to you We would have to look back in our records here The only date that I remember is the appointment I raised the– Can we report on that next meeting? I raised the question because the city, the college has an elaborate facilities process, and I don’t recall any discussion of the relationship between the Facilities Subcommittee and that process, and who reports to who, who makes final decisions, and so how this committee is integrated into that process, so I’m, so we gotta be able to look historically and see if those things were considered – [Reagan] We’ll research it and get back to you for the next meeting Thank you, those are valid points, Trustee Otto, thank you, any additional discussion on that item?

Okay, that is an action item, so I will need a motion and a second, please So moved – [Virginia] Second So the two trustees that have been appointed to the Facilities Subcommittees meeting moved and seconded that they be appointed Any additional discussion on that? All right, said level those in favor– I have something to say Yes, Trustee Zia? I just wanted to commend your selection and your appointment, Trustee Baxter and Trustee Ntuk will both do a great job, so I’m excited to hear about their reports, and look forward to see what will come one of the Facilities Subcommittee Thank you Thank you, Trustee Zia, Trustee Otto? And I’m gonna abstain from this vote because I’d like to know that the committee was validly established, and what, how it integrates with what I think is a great facilities planning process that we have, and just get some clarity on that, so Thank you for letting us know in advance of your abstention, any additional remarks on that? All right, all those in favor, or you do have to call on Student Trustee, right? All right, there you go [Madame Secretary] Donnell Jones? – [Donnell] Aye And all those in favor? Aye Aye Any opposed? And any abstentions? Abstain Thank you, Trustee Otto, for letting us know We are moving onto item 4.7, and as mentioned previously, this schedule is good, minus the last item, which is the December 9th date So this is an action item, we will be voting to approve the meeting calendar for 2020, with the exception of the December 9th meeting We will have to wait to see, first of all, what legal counsel says, based on the election results of the November election and how that comes back So I just want to make sure everyone understands that we’re voting on everything except the December meeting, any discussion on that? I’d like to clarify, it’s not depending on the election, it’s the fact that the election will take place, and we have to reschedule within the timeframe of the annual organization meeting, and the term commencement of the new trustees, or reelected trustees I stand corrected, thank you for that clarification, any discussion? So right now, we need a motion to approve that calendar without the December 9th meeting – [Virginia] So move Second All right, it has been moved and seconded, oh, I’m sorry, we do have to have Student Trustee vote on that, right? Student Trustee– I apologize Donnell Jones? Aye All right, all those in favor of this amended schedule for the 2020 board meetings, please say aye – [Board Members] Aye Any opposed, all right, thank you We are moving onto item 4.8, the Community and Student Workforce Project Agreement This is a discussion and possible agenda item, and I will defer this to Vice President Drinkwine Thank you so much, at our last meeting, we discussed in depth the Community and Student Workforce Project Labor Agreement I’d like to provide you with an update on negotiations thus far Provided for you is a brief summary of the existing agreement, as well as the motions that were successful from our last meeting Those were reflected on page two, that the motions were, that were, again, successful, were to add Long Beach Community College student graduates to tier one priority, they were to request the trades unions to provide our student graduates preferential entry into apprenticeship programs, to add stipulations that the trade unions advocate for our training programs when negotiating with other agencies, to base the amendment on a project list, and to have the amendment go until the completion of all bond projects going forward and the ones that are remaining, which could be until 2041 We’ve had several productive conversation with the Trades Council, we continue to negotiate on the exact language, but there is broad agreement on these issues I’ve provided for you what the project list would look like for an agreement that goes through the conclusion of the facilities master plan through 2041 Those projects are listed beginning

on the bottom of page two, and continue through page three There would be a total of 14 projects, and to clarify, these are the projects that are currently identified and defined There are some projects in the plan, examples are minor campus improvements, the enterprise-wide computer system, landscaping, or joint use facilities, that are very broadly stated, landscaping’s a good example From year to year, we may identify a need, it’s not identified now, so we can’t say each of those subprojects, what the value of them are, the same with the minor campus improvements The larger two, the enterprise-wide computer system or the joint use facilities are not defined They are very large projects, so therefore, they are not reflected You can, under the current agreement, and we intend to repeat the language, as a board, choose to add a project as it is defined, even if it’s not already in the project list So of those defined projects, there are, again, 14, the total value of the construction costs, so this does not represent the entire costs of the project, but rather just the construction costs portion, is $334,784,430.00 So negotiations continue, I hope to be able to come back to you in the very near future with an agreeable amendment that satisfies both our needs, as well as the Trades Council’s, and what questions can I answer for you? Okay, are there any questions at this time for Vice President Drinkwine? I know Trustee Otto, you wanted to speak I’m uncomfortable with the idea that we might take action on something tonight, the reason for that is that we would be piecemealing a very important part of how it is that we will be doing things for the next 20 plus years And the, (quiet overlapping chattering) so what I would rather do is continue this item and have a comprehensive discussion when we have a proposal that has been vetted between the trades and the college at our September, at our next meeting in September And so I would move that we continue this item to the September board meeting And forgive me, Trustee Otto, the item is discussion with possible action So unless the Board of Trustee wished to change any of those negotiating parameters as voted by the last meeting, this is intended to be an update on the issue Only action would be if you wished to take additional action regarding the parameters And personally, I feel that we had a discussion last time, I walked away from it not knowing exactly what was decided, or where we were going, and I’d rather not have another discussion and then try and integrate that discussion with the action that we would be contemplating taking at the September meeting, and so it would be I think in all of our best interests, especially given this long agenda, to do all that at once We can study it, there’ll be something concrete in front of us, and so that’s why I’m making this recommendation, and see if there’s a second – [Uduak-Joe] I’ll second it Okay, just a second, thank you very much, I just want to make sure procedurally, Vice President Drinkwine, you had called if anyone had any questions, correct? Okay, so I just want to make sure that we’re following proper protocol if we do have questions, and then we’ll go into a motion, and then we’ll go into discussion I don’t want to put the cart before the horse So anybody have any questions on Vice President Drinkwine’s report? Okay, so now, in order for us to have discussion on the item, we do need a motion, and then we can open up the floor for discussion – [Uduak-Joe] Say it again? I move that this matter be reagendized at the September meeting of the board – [Uduak-Joe] Second Excuse me, could you repeat your motion, Trustee Otto? That this agenda item be placed on the September meeting of the Board of Trustees Continue to that meeting [Madame Secretary] I’m sorry, what? Continued until that meeting

[Madame Secretary] Okay Is it your wish to bring the fully baked contract back to September, or continue the discussion at September? No, to bring the fully baked contract back [Madame Secretary] We’ll bring the full contract back, correct? And Trustee Ntuk, you still second it? Okay, we have a motion on the floor, it has been seconded, to bring this agenda item back on the September 11th board meeting as a fully completed amendment to the existing Community and Student Workforce Project And do we have any discussion on that motion, Student Trustee? I just have a question, I think it was already pointed out by Vice President Drinkwine earlier that this item is, it’s up for discussion, so would it not already come back at the next meeting, just the same? We don’t have to take action on it unless we’re actually going to make any changes? Trustee Otto, would you like to address him, since you are the maker of the motion? Sure, I don’t think that, I think that the motion cleans up the way that we’re going to do this, which is we’re gonna consider all of this at the September meeting, and it doesn’t preclude our discussing it at that meeting, as well, I just think that decisions are better made at one time than piecemeal And so since there were no questions when it was asked to have a discussion right now about those items, it’s, in my opinion, I made the motion so we could tackle this issue in September Thank you, any additional questions or discussion items for this motion? All right, at this time, Madame Secretary, we’ll go ahead and call for the vote [Madame Secretary] Doug Otto? – [Doug] Aye Any, all those in favor of this motion, please say aye – [Board Members] Aye Any opposed? Nay All right, I believe the motion carries, I heard one nay, Madame Secretary? – [Virginia] That’s correct All right, thank you, moving onto item 4.9, health and welfare benefits– (overlapping chattering) It passed, sorry, Trustee Baxter – [Virginia] It’s okay All right, item 4.9 – [Virginia] I had it wrong, excuse me Are we good, Madame Secretary? [Madame Secretary] One moment, I’m correcting the vote We had one nay [Madame Secretary] Yes – [Sunny] Yeah, but she had the wrong nay, I didn’t, I wasn’t (mumbles) Okay, item 4.9, health and welfare benefits for members of the Board of Trustees and personnel commission per board policy 2002 Once again, this is a discussion and possible action item, I would like to defer this to Vice President Gene Durand So at a previous meeting, there was a discussion on health and welfare benefits, and the ability to waive, we did look into it further, and what you see in this information is that we do allow employees to waive benefits as it is listed on the waiver I believe only the three categories that are there because of our limited resources with health and welfare administration, it is done manually by one person who reports to the payroll manager, as opposed to a more automated system, which I know was down the road We heard last night that part of the BPR might be related to looking into the implementation, and I’ll let Vice President Drinkwine jump in if she wishes, look into the implementation of an online self service health and welfare benefit admin process But currently, again, it is just one person who does it for every single employee of the district, which is over 2,000 people I’m not sure what else, we did provide some other information, I’m not sure if the board has any additional questions on that Any additional questions for Vice President Durand, regarding this item? Trustee Ntuk? Sure, yeah, thank you so much for the additional information Just to clarify, are appointees of the Bond Oversight Committee, trustees or personnel commissioners, employees of the district? So not necessarily employees, but by policy, they are given the same health and welfare benefits as employees And then I know we were talking earlier, is it true that some employees get no healthcare benefits,

the part-time instructors do not get healthcare, any of these three healthcare options? Sure, so there are a couple categories, and I hope I remember them all, so for any staff member who is working less than 20 hours, no benefits, 20 hours and above, they get benefits, regular employees Those individuals who are classified, that considered an LTE and outside the personnel commission, LTE employees would not get benefits In addition, part-time faculty do not get health and welfare benefits, what is offered to those individuals, though, is a bronze plan, as is required under the ACA, and if that is determined to be not affordable, then they can go to the Exchange, to California Covered, and see what may be available there But as far as support from the district, there is no additional support for health and welfare benefits What is the cost of the bronze ACA, I think it’s called Covered California? You know, I don’t have that in front of me, I can get that back, generally it’s around the seven, $800.00 a month The target, I remember, was about 750 I can get that information for the board, to see what the current rate is that we are offer And then with the new findings of the options, do we need to amend the policy to give people the option if they want dental, versus only vision, or? Am I correct, that’s a potential option? So it is three waivers, and that’s currently what we offer If there is a desire to explore other things, we certainly can look at that Oh, so on the current waiver form, you just pick one? Correct, so there are three options, so all insurances, or medical insurance only, or dental and vision together only And for those individuals who are covered who are waiving medical, we would need certification that they are covered elsewhere And then do we do the, we’re not able to find survey information on personnel commissioners that get healthcare benefits? I know we talked about it last time, but I didn’t know, that was an unanswered question I do not believe we were able to find any survey information that would be helpful I don’t know if Vice President Drinkwine has any other information to add I think the only information we could find at a survey level was regarding trustee health benefits There was not any collection of data regarding personnel commission health benefits (overlapping chattering) So Vice President Drinkwine, is there any opportunities for savings on what we have? I did provide for you, attached to the agenda was a two year history of costs, and then provided tonight was an expanded three year history of costs There is a selection of packages that can be made, the most expensive package is for family coverage using a PPO for health and a PPO for dental, and the district contribution for that would be $29,621.00 There are savings between what was selected by each trustee or commissioner and that total, but provided for you in that document is the total by Board of Trustees, and then separately by personnel commission for 2016, ’17, ’17/’18 and ’18/’19 And so you can see that each of those totals, after accounting for the waivers of the Board of Trustees, the Board of Trustees total for ’18/’19 is $53,408.00, and then for the personnel commission with no waivers, the total is $51,305.00 And the three, I guess the three year, we just take the, any number times three? Absolutely, it is a little bit difficult in that we do anticipate healthcare costs to rise every year, and it depends on the year what the severity of that increase is, but you can certainly say that at a minimum, it is at least savings of about $150,000.00 for each of the board or the personnel commission over a three year period Any additional questions? Okay, this is a possible action item, is there any action that staff recommends

that we take, or do we leave everything as is? Is there a recommendation? If any of the trustees see any changes that need to be made, if not, then we’ll move on All right, thank you very much So we’re gonna move onto, Dario, is our caller ready on the line? I hear buzzing, so we’re moving onto item 4.10, this is our board self evaluation, and we’re going to pause, (phone dials) there it is, some– (Robin mumbles) Technical action here, Dr Calote, are you on the line? – [Robin] Here it is, some (mumbles) I think she’s watching the board meeting, and there’s a few seconds delay from the webcast Dr. Calote, are you on the line? – [Robin] Yes, I am, I am Okay, welcome, for the public, this is, Dr. Romali selected Dr. Calote to conduct the Superintendent President evaluation, and also the board evaluation, and she is on the line, and this is a discussion, possible action item She has been, she’s teleconferencing with us, we teleconferenced with her earlier during closed session, and she will describe the board self-evaluation process Go ahead, Dr. Calote, welcome, and you have the floor – [Robin] Thank you very much, again, my name is Dr. Robin Calote, for members of the audience, and I wanted to let you know that I was the President of Ventura College until I retired in 2013, since then, I have done some work for Community College Search Services, a consulting firm where I’ve been involved with recruitment and doing background reports But my presentation this evening is not affiliated with that consulting firm What I’d like to do is briefly walk you through a four part document that you received as a BoardDocs attachment Part one is a review of the purpose for and process of board self evaluation, and page one tells you that the board self evaluation is required by accreditation standards, that your board policy 2018 is consistent with those accreditation standards More importantly than just meeting accreditation standards, however, for self evaluation is an opportunity to model the organizational value of reflecting on one’s own performance and engaging in ongoing improvement Outcomes of the typical board self evaluation are described at the bottom of page one, and these are a summary of board accomplishments for the prior year, again, differentiating between board accomplishments and institutional accomplishments, assessment of progress towards last year’s board goals, identification of new board goals, reflection of team dynamics and effectiveness, and identification of areas where additional information or support are needed On page two of part one describes the components of board self evaluation as being a survey of the trustees, a survey of employee constituent groups who are in a position to have observed and are aware of the board in action, preparation of a report that summarizes the surveys, and then a study session or retreat in which the board discusses the summarized survey findings, assesses where it is relative to last year’s board goals, and establishes new goals for itself And then at a later meeting, the board accepts a concluding summary report, based on the study session discussions Before I go onto a review of the draft survey documents, do you have any questions? Anyone have any questions for Dr. Calote? I have a question if, can you hear me? This is Trustee– Yes, I can Ntuk, okay, great, what’s the best way to measure the board accomplishments in the self-evaluation process? – [Robin] Well, in last year’s self evaluation, did you identify goals for yourself, as a board? – [Virginia] Yes, yes, yes – [Robin] Yes, you did, okay, so you would then, in your discussion, review, discuss and review how satisfied you are towards having accomplished those goals So it depends on how concrete your goals were

If, for example, it was to increase awareness of the budget process and you held workshops, even that accomplished that goal So ideally, you would have identified both goals and activities that would support those goals, and could then measure whether you did them or not Any additional questions? Okay, Dr. Calote, go ahead, you have the floor – [Robin] Okay, so then moving onto part two, this is a draft open for as many revisions as you’d like to make, this would be used as a trustee self evaluation form It’s based on 35 questions that were taken from the Community College Lead Question Bank for board self evaluation And they have many more than 35, but in general, people are put off when they have to answer 70, 80 questions, so 35 seemed to be a good number, without being redundant in the questions They would be administered as a SurveyMonkey, in an online form, and responses would be sent either to me, or to me in combination with Human Resources, or whoever else you determined The individual responses would be consolidated and not link to any respondent trustee, and as you can see from looking at it, for the 35 questions, they’re on a Likert scale, identifying what the board responsibility is, for example, under mission and planning, the board reviews the mission and purposes of the institution, and then on a scale of one to five, to what degree have they accomplished that, and there’s also space for not observed At the end of the 35 questions, beginning on page 11 are an additional five open-ended questions, which are, what are the board’s greatest strengths? To improve effectiveness, in what areas is the board in need of additional support of development? What issues have most occupied the board’s time and attention during the past year, and were these closely tied to the mission and goals of the district and board? Is the board functioning as a team as well as it should, why or why not, and what does the board do to maintain a positive relationship with the CEO? What does the board need to change, if anything? So again, for these five questions, or any version of open-ended questions that you would like to include, these responses would be consolidated, so they’re not linked back to any one trustee I know you probably haven’t had much time to review these questions, so you may want to take more time and then provide feedback on what changes you’d like to see Moving onto part three, this would be the form, the proposed form for using with constituent groups Again, this is a draft, the questions are the same, including the open-ended questions at the end And again, all of the responses would be consolidated within this group, and nothing would be linked back to the individual response, and this survey response would be kept separate from the one that the trustees are filling out for themselves And then finally, part four is a draft assessment of perceived trustee needs or resources, and or training, and this would be part of your planning process, as well, this is, again, based on a question bank from the Community College League for Trustee Self Evaluation And it goes through, it’s fairly long, it goes through a long list of information that you might need as a trustee, and you would assess as an individual, how confident you feel in each area, and whether, if you’re very confident, that you feel you have some knowledge and skills, or whether you feel you need more information These responses would all be consolidated into a report, and from that hopefully would emerge some good ideas of areas where the board would like workshops and more training, or more reports, or more information that would help them to be more knowledgeable and effective as board members So those would be, again, the components of board self evaluation, and I invite any questions that you may have Okay, Dr. Calote, Ginny Baxter

Here’s my question, I looked at your resume, and it does not list that you’ve done this work before How many college and boards, I hope I’m not being rude, how many college, but I will proceed anyway, how many colleges and boards have you worked with with self evaluation? – [Robin] I have only worked with, I have done a lot of evaluation of candidates, and I have worked as a community college president and have participated in board workshops and facilitation and board evaluation, but I have not done consulting work in this area– Okay, thank you Any additional questions or comments? I do Trustee Zia? Thank you, I wasn’t quite sure when reading this, and again, I need to distill a little bit more and look at it scrupulously, but as far as the community aspect of it, I just wasn’t sure what that’s reflected, it may be prudent for us to be evaluated by members of the community who work with us, or come to our meetings, so that we’re not operating in our own ecosystem and cocoon necessarily Is that something that we’ve given some foresight and introspection, and perhaps looked at other colleges? I think, if I’m not mistaken, I reckon Rancho Santiago Community College does that, has a community element in their 360 review But I may be wrong – [Robin] Well, that’s certainly something that could be added, in terms of the constituent feedback And you can survey anyone that you would like to survey, with the constituency background Yeah, I mean, I recognize that we get our feedback through our elections, but in the interim, it would be nice to know how we’re doing in the community, and how the community perceives us – [Robin] It’s nice to get concrete feedback, beyond just a ballot I’m sorry? – [Robin] I think it’s nice to get concrete feedback, beyond just a ballot – [Sunny] Yeah Any additional questions or comments? I have a couple of comments, Dr. Calote, in section two, I believe, with the actual questions I noticed that there was a lot of policy questions on here that the board is being asked to self evaluate I highlighted some of the most relevant ones that are applicable to me and my service, and then also my colleagues And I’d just like to call attention to four of them, and then I’d like to ask you a question about them So question 21, board members uphold and comply with the board’s code of ethics, question 22, board members avoid conflicts of interest, and the perception of such conflicts, question 24, board discussions and relationships reflect a climate of trust and respect, and the last one is, and again, I did highlight a few of them, but the most relevant ones, question 25, board members exhibit integrity and professionalism in fulfilling their role So I have a question for you because board members are asked to self evaluate, and then they are asked to evaluate the board, how do you compile individual responses and then present them, and then compile board responses and present them? Is it a scale? I see that these answers have been assigned a number value, do you add them and present a number value, and then is there a scale for them? Or how do you measure that, what’s the metric that you use? – [Robin] Okay, first, I want to make sure you’re understanding, when it says, “Board members uphold “and comply with the board’s code of ethics,” the individual board members are not evaluating just themselves, they’re thinking of the group as a whole So as the group as a whole, do you feel the group upholds and complies with the board’s code of ethics? So not answering, for this survey, you’re not answering in terms of just your own performance, but the group as a whole The application software of SurveyMonkey consolidates all of the answers, and then it has metrics, so it will show the average number, so

And then what I was planning on doing was comparing the board’s average of their answers with the average of the answers of the constituents, and from that, you could see if there’s any congruence or mismatches between the way the board perceives itself and the way constituent groups perceive it And that’s the real value of doing it this way Okay, thank you– – [Robin] Did that answer your question? It did answer the question, yes I think perhaps that we should incorporate a more substantive metric, perhaps it’s the teacher in me that wants to see a grading scale, but I know that that’s not possible, so I’ll take a look at this document, and then offer feedback, and maybe do some research and see what other boards do to have an actual metric, something that we can actually, a tangible score or grading rubric Any additional questions or comments? – [Virginia] I have one Yes? President Malauulu, perhaps if you looked at the last time we did this evaluation, it would help you because as Dr. Calote says, these are taken from the Community College League’s list, and so she’s not just making questions up I think a lot of them probably are the same, so it would be interesting, perhaps, for the board to review what the answers were, or is that a bad idea because it might skew the responses? Yeah, just for clarification, I’m not questioning the questions themselves The questions are fine, I’m familiar with the questions and their origin My question is, as far as, what is a deliverable, what do we actually get, how is it presented, how are the scores, if there is a score, if there’s a grading scale, that’s really what my question is I’m okay with the questions, I just want to know what the system of measurement is – [Virginia] It’ll be one through five Sure, sure, any additional questions or remarks? I have one more, Dr. Calote, and thank you very much Before we let you go, I had also looked over your resume, and I noticed you were at Ventura College Were you at Ventura College at the same time as Dr. Scott? You were both– I certainly was You were both there at the same time? – [Robin] I invited her to come into administration Okay, got it, thank you, thank you very much, anybody else? All right, thank you, Dr. Calote, and we might be calling you back in closed session, so thank you for tuning in – [Robin] Okay, thank you very much, good evening All right, so this is, it is a discussion and possible action item, are there any action that needs to be taken, is there any action that anybody would like to propose? All right, so we’re gonna move onto item 4.11 This is the 2019/2020 board agenda schedule This is just an information item, schedules and ongoing routine agenda items that the board can expect to see on a monthly basis, when we have our board meetings Any discussion on that? All right, and now we are moving onto item 4.12, and at this time, I would like to defer the meeting to Vice President Ntuk, and do you want to switch seats, or can you do it from there, it’s up to you (quiet overlapping chattering) (Uduak-Joe mumbles) I could do it from– All right I didn’t know, great, so I guess we’re moving onto item 4.12, I believe we have some speaker cards for this agenda item Yes, I apologize, so there were two late speakers who had arrived, and they did go fill out the speaker card, but they didn’t make it in time, so sorry, I should have disclosed that before I handed over the meeting, thank you Sure, so I have two individuals, I’ll call up Mister, I have a Nizan Harvell and John Taileif I don’t know if either or both are still here, or wanted to speak? We’ll go with Nizan, if I’m saying that correctly Nizan, thank you, welcome Okay Hi, oops, this is, oh, I’m not

I would like to state that I am very upset to see this item on the agenda, I think this is a personal attack and not something that this board should be dealing with I feel like seeing someone be censured for, I can’t even, it’s not appropriate for this board to deal with personal statements, and take it to this place, I think, sorry, microphones I think this is more politically motivated than it is actually appropriate, and I also think that obviously the person who is targeted by this censure is an incredible member of our community, who has represented our community to the fullest, elected by her constituents, and I think that her constituents would be upset by, as a constituent, would be upset by this action I’m offended by it, personally And I also think that letting voices be heard, when it comes to an alleged, an alleged, sorry, my mind just went blank I’ve got time Where are my notes? I think this is more a term that should be settled personally in a conversation and dealt with, and not dealt with in this public forum I don’t think this is, first, I think it’s a personal conversation that happened I think it was something that, if a conversation happened with so much, someone didn’t agree with what was said, they could go personally to the person and express that without having to take it to a public forum and offend an entire community of people by doing so, and that’s it Thank you, Mr. John Taileif? My name is John Taileif, and I thank you, the Board of Trustees, for the moment This is a sensitive subject, I am a constituent, longterm supporter of this college through various measures passed to provide resources to this school I am a board member serving on various boards in Southern California, and watching, and I keep an eye on what goes on here because it’s an interest of mine I also serve at Cal State Long Beach under the CITT Master’s Logistics Program So this type of interesting development from this board I want to question and address As a board member, there are certain codes of ethics that you perform under, and if you’re going to have discussions regarding Ms. Zia, and if you discipline her, it would probably be appropriate, because I saw the moments of the film, back on July 24th, when she acted out, what she said In the climate of where the country’s at today, what I observed was literally somewhat of a subtle bashing of faith, and that’s not acceptable in this forum So we entrust you to guide the academic status of this institution, not to folly around and play immature games, and seethingly providing insults to your colleagues I ask you, in your discussions, to provide some measure of discipline, however that may be, it merits and it deserves this Ms. Zia, I hope that you can perform better in your capacity, thank you Thank you so much So moving on, we have, and just to clarify, according to our policy on an ethics complaint, if the president is involved in the complaint, then the vice president is asked to step in, which was the reason the meeting was passed

on to me So we have a written complaint, we also have a draft resolution We have a rebuttal, we have copies of the transcripts of the July meeting I guess at this time, we can open the floor for discussion or motions Well, I’ll start, I guess Someone asked me what I thought about this situation, and my answer was that this college has been around for 90 years, and I care about it more than any situation that might happen, and I care about the students And so when I vote, that’s how I’m going to vote, is what about the reputation of the school, what about what we stand for? And that’s all I’m gonna say (Uduak-Joe mumbles) (Sunny mumbles) Trustee Zia? Thank you, Madame Chair, Vice President Ntuk, fellow board members, administrators, faculty, and public, quite frankly, I messed up In a fit of frustration, I lost my temper, and said a number of things I should not have said, and definitely very much regret saying From the bottom of my heart, I apologize What is unfortunate is that my comments and the subsequent argument it caused with several of my board colleagues has only served to distract and take attention away from the main reason we are all here, to provide equitable student learning and achievement, academic excellence, and workforce development by delivering high-quality educational programs and support services to our diverse communities That is our mission, that is what we should be focusing on My apology, that I temporarily lost my temper, I know that I’m not perfect, I am human I sometimes make mistakes, I will do my best to keep any disagreement I may have with my colleagues, administrators, or faculty to a minimum, while doing my best to maintain a professional demeanor Thank you for your patience with me, it is much appreciated Thank you Mr. Ntuk? President Malauulu? Dario, I had sent you a text, I don’t know if you got it, I didn’t get a response there And I apologize, I had wanted you to play a clip, a particular clip, but I didn’t get a response from you, I’m sorry to put you on the spot like that If it’s not something that can happen, then I completely understand Okay, no worries At this time, I would just like to make a motion that we adopt a resolution of censure of Trustee Sunny Zia, based on the behavior of the July 24th board meeting I have a motion, is there a second? Second Is there any other further discussion on the agenda item? Trustee Otto? I would just say this, this is not an easy decision, but it is my opinion that given the evidence of dysfunction of this board, not just on the 24th of July, but over an extended period of time, something must be done And I support the motion, I hope that it will lead to better behavior, and this board can start to function as one, and not as a group of five individuals I’d also like to speak in favor of the motion First of all, I’d like to thank the members of the public who took the time to be here to speak I take heed, I agree with what Trustee Otto said, this is not an easy decision, it’s actually been a very difficult decision It’s caused considerable anxiety,

however, I took my oath of office very seriously I took the pledge that I made as a trustee very seriously, and I take my job very seriously, to serve this district, and to serve the community We do have board policies in place, we have had lots of problems during the three years that I’ve been on the board with just trustee behavior, which has been personally embarrassing to me And based on feedback that I’ve received from staff, students, community, even administrators, I’m not the only person who feels that way And it is unfortunate that it has come to this, and while some things are private and discussed in closed session, and actually, some things will be evaluated further, just so that you’re aware, this is not an isolated incident There have been other incidents, but we did not have a board policy in place that allowed us an opportunity to present them as agenda items, and now we do And I am following my conscience, and I am following my conviction to address an issue that I believe has gotten progressively worse, and will continue to escalate unless this board takes action As board chair, I made a vow, a public vow several times that when I became board chair, the culture of our meetings would change, and the atmosphere of our meetings would change, and the treatment of trustees would change And it is unfortunate that we had a mishap during my very first meeting as board chair We live in a country today where the President of the United States is allowed free will to speak and say things that we all know are inappropriate for an elected leader who is to represent an entire body, and it is unfortunate that we can’t do anything about it We can’t, the media has been censured, his own staff has been censured, and we here at the district are in a position where we actually can do something about it, and we actually can take action And again, it is not an easy decision, it’s a decision that I prayed over, had a lot of discussion with my family over And while I do accept Trustee Zia’s apology, which came, ironically, the day that I submitted the complaint, so just to give you a little timeline, the board meeting was July 24th, and I believe, and I have four children, so I teach them that if you’re sorry, you’re sorry right away And if not, you sleep on it, and you’re usually sorry the next day, and you start to feel remorse, and you address the issue There was a few days, a couple of weeks, three weeks, four weeks go by There was no attempt from Trustee Zia to reach out to me with an apology, to seek mediation, and when I filed the complaint, there was the attempt for the apology And I just felt that it was disingenuous because the apology should have happened sooner if it was sincere, and that’s perhaps, I’m a mom, so I see the world through a different lens, and in raising children, that’s how I’m raising my children Sometimes we see people who continually wrong others, and continually apologize over and over again And the behavior does not change, the apologies come, and Trustee Zia, I appreciate your apology today and the day that I filed the complaint I really wish that you had reached out to me a little sooner, and perhaps maybe then there would have been some mediation, without it having come to this because I did sit on the complaint for almost 30 days So at this time, those are the comments that I’d like to make, and again, I thank the members of the public And this is something that is allowed by district policy, and is well within our purview, and we are setting a precedent So the comments that were made to me were, “Oh, you’re a good Christian, “you’re a really good Christian, and holier than thou.” And if I said that about any other faith on this dais, my family would disown me If I made reference to someone else’s religion, or if I said, and I don’t mean this, I’m giving you an example, but if I said,

“Oh, you’re a good Muslim, a really good Muslim,” or, “You’re a good Jew, a really good Jew,” I would have instantly apologized, if I got caught up in the heat of the moment But what was said to me is, “Oh, you’re a good Christian, “you’re a really good Christian,” it was shocking And I don’t want a precedent to be set for the rest of our district to have teachers, faculty members, staff members, students, speak to each other that way, and I don’t want to walk through a hallway or walk through an admissions building and hear that type of commentary being said throughout our campus And if it’s appropriate to say it here on the dais to each other, we are elected officials, we are board members, we should be held above reproach We should set a higher standard, that’s not to say that we’re not human, we are, and we are imperfect, and we are a work in progress But we need to do better, and when this behavior continues to escalate, and when it continues to worsen, then we have a problem because the burden of responsibility to correct is falls on us And as Board Chair, it was my decision to take action, and to make sure that the district is protected from this potentially more damaging behavior, thank you Madame Board Secretary, I’d like to call for a roll call vote May I restate the motion, is that the Board of Trustees adopt a resolution of censure of Trustee Sunny Zia, and the motion was made by Vivian Malauulu and second by Doug Otto, is that correct? Yes Okay, Virginia Baxter? Nay This is interesting, we don’t have a nay anymore– No, it’s okay, I’ll abstain No, that’s okay, I can record it as nay if you like, what would you like? I’d like nay All of a sudden, my menu has changed to aye, and not now, and abstain, and absent, Vivian Malauulu? Yea Uduak-Joe Ntuk? Aye Doug Otto? Aye Sunny Zia? Nay I’ll have to change that (mumbles) The motion passes, and we move onto the next agenda item, and so we have agenda item 5.1, and I’m gonna pass this back to President Malauulu Thank you, Trustee Otto, item 5.1 is electric vehicle charging stations, this is an information item I will defer to Vice President Drinkwine, who has information that she will present Thank you, I’m presenting from the podium so that I can be joined by Walter Johnson, who is our Senior Director of Facilities We are presenting to you this evening a short overview of our electric vehicle charging stations You’ll see that later in the agenda, we do have an item for your approval regarding the fees to be charged at these stations, and so in this presentation, we hope to give you a short overview of what they are, where will they be, and how much will they cost us Yeah, I will continue with the next slide The agenda item consists of background with the district-wide energy project, electric vehicle charging station location, electric vehicle charging infrastructure, project funding and fees, and then questions and answers To achieve our goal of zero net energy by 2025, there are four key projects and strategy that the district has embarked upon The first one is energy and potable water use reduction strategy That’s a correction that I’m making here at the podium, if you look at the screen, it said portable, but that should be potable And one of the reasons, one of the things that we are doing as a district to reduce potable water is that we’re using non-potable water for our irrigation system We’re using that to flush the toilet, and we’re also (mumbles) out with new project and renovation projects, efficient plumbing fixtures, which are low-flow toilets and low-flow urinals Our number two strategy is renewable energy production strategy, and we’re achieving that

by implementing solar PV array systems at both this, at the LAC campus and the PCC campus We have solar PV panels on the parking structure here at LAC, and they will also be on the parking structure, the new parking structure at the PCC campus Our third strategy is a thermal storage strategy for (mumbles), and what this does is utilizes standard HVAC equipment that we already have in place in all our facilities, plus an energy storage tank, and by collecting energy on the off hours, mainly at night, we can save energy, with a possible cost in reduction by 50%, and what this does is, energy is stored at off-peak hours during the night, and then it’s released throughout the building during the daytime So it is time released throughout the building Our fourth strategy is clean energy use strategy for transportation, and that takes us to our installing electric vehicle charging stations at this campus, LAC campus, and also at the PCC campus And if we go to the next slide, as you can see, by June of 2021 we are expected to have 138 EV chargers installed, plus an additional 45 clean air vehicle spaces at PCC’s P2 new parking structure It also will have 67 parking structure, 67 stalls at our parking structure here on the LAC campus, on the first floor of the parking garage, in the parking structure At lot number 10, we’ll have 27 stalls at our PCC campus, and we’ll have 33 stalls at the P2 parking structure, which is scheduled to start fall of 2020 Well, the available fall of 2020 We will also have 11 stalls, electric vehicle stalls, at our new KLAC facility that’s scheduled for this construction this fall So that would give us a total of 138 EV charging stalls by June 2020 If you look at the next slide, this shows the location of those EV charging stalls, and where they’ll be located The first one is the LAC parking structure, as you can see highlighted in green Those will be the location of the first floor of the parking structure here on the LAC campus, and if you look at right beside it, it’s the PCC parking lot number 10 Those highlighted areas represent the stalls that will be at the PCC parking lot Our next slide is the P2 parking structure at PCC You’ll see the highlighted areas there, that will be the EV charging stalls at the new parking structure We’re excited about getting that project constructed, it’s gonna be a beautiful facility, and it’s integrating the art deco design of existing buildings, and it’s also an opportunity for an identifier for people coming up PCH, you could actually, that building will anchor that corner So you will have people see Long Beach City College, glaring at them when you come up the PCH Our next slide is the, we call it the KLAC, which is the new project coming online with the Kinesiology Lab and Aquatic Center at LAC And if you look at the highlighted areas to the left, you will see the parking stalls there, the black, and if you look to the right of that, that’s the, well, it’ll be the new soccer field And at that existing parking lot, you’ll see that kind of little blue, but that was, I guess the one that printed, but that was highlighted earlier to represent the new parking stall that will be in that location So we are very excited about the possibility, the cost savings, of having electric vehicle charging stations on campus We’re looking forward to faculty, staff, and students being able to use those devices Oh, sorry

Okay, the next slide is the electric vehicle charging infrastructure This is a partnership with Southern California Edison, which it’s called a Charge Ready program From an infrastructure standpoint, Southern California Edison, they design, install, and they will own and maintain the infrastructure, and all of this is done to support the California Zero Emission Policy But as far as the charging unit, the district buys, installs, and maintains the charging units, and the value to the district is the cost The infrastructure cost is estimated at $500,000.00 for the LAC campus, and $300,000.00 for the PCC campus, for a total of $800,000.00 And also, as an added bonus, Southern California Edison would provide a rebate to the district for a portion of the cost of the charge, for an estimated total of $50,000.00 for LAC and PCC And so we did bring to you Admin Reg 7000 in May, and this regulation, we updated to specifically add section 6.1, and 6J that talk about the usage of our spaces for exclusive EV charging And so that Admin Reg states that any vehicle that’s parked at one of those stalls and is not actively charging or does not display a valid parking pass could get ticketed So the idea here is that we want to preserve these spaces for electric vehicles that are charging In addition, per some California regulation, we do allow clean air vehicles to park there if they are natural gas vehicles, for instance Obviously, they’re not charging, but if they display the correct sticker, they will be allowed to park there And so that’s already been adopted in our regs, what needs approval, however, are the fees that we will charge, we are incredibly grateful to Southern California Edison to give us roughly $850,000.00 worth of infrastructure and rebates, however, that does not mean we don’t have costs The average cost of electricity to us is 14 cents per kilowatt hour, in addition, we do have service fees It does cost us to pay the firm to run the charge ready stations, and to accept credit cards, as you know, most vendors who accept credit cards have to pay a portion of that transaction, as do we, it’s not free And we also have ongoing maintenance fees So when we look at a combination of the cost of energy on that per kilowatt hour, plus our estimation of the combination of the administration fees for the charge ready points, as well as maintenance fees on an ongoing basis, we estimate those to be about 15 cents per kilowatt hour So it’s our recommendation that we charge the users, regardless of whether they’re students, staff, faculty, or community members, a single rate of 29 cents per kilowatt hour, which reflects our recovery of our costs However, we would prefer not to have drivers of these vehicles completely use up space for the entire day, we want to ensure that that is movement in these spots Although initially we believe we will have an excess of EV charging stations, we do see that the movement towards electric vehicles is great, and more people will be driving them And so we would like to impose a surcharge after a four hour period of $1.50, and that is an incentive to charge for only four hours We selected four hours for a couple of reasons, one is that if you’re taking a class, you’ll be able to park, take your class, and move your car And the second is that most vehicles can charge adequately within four hours, we’re using what’s called a level two charge station, which charges at a much, much higher rate than you would in your typical home, if you’re plugging in and haven’t done an upgrade So we wanted to be really thoughtful about the average amount of time for use, as well as what those, one more time, there we go, what that would be as a convenience factor We also compared to our neighbors, we certainly didn’t want to have a fee that was prohibitive, but we wanted to make sure what we were charging was reasonable When we look at our nearby colleges, you can see that Cal State Long Beach has a bifurcated rate, 25 cents per kilowatt hour for students,

staff, and faculty, 40 cents for guests El Camino is, across the board, 30 cents Orange Coast College is $1.25 for the first four hours, and that’s a per hour rate, so not a per kilowatt hour So understand that a kilowatt hour is a measurement of energy, and an hour, obviously, is time You can charge several kilowatt hours within an hour, and it depends entirely on your specific vehicle, but using, as a standard, if we look, for instance, at a Toyota Prius, it would, for a full charge ’cause those batteries are smaller, a buck 28 to fully charge it But if you were looking at a Tesla, which has a super big battery, it would actually take eight hours to charge, and once you get past the surcharge, it’s $62.00 And if you go mid-range with a Chevy Volt, it’s about $4.64, so I want to be very clear here We’re proposing a per kilowatt hour charge because that represents a recovery of our costs, and not a per hour And so when you compare that to Orange Coast College with the $1.24 an hour, or $3.00 an hour after four hours, that’s more consistent, but it will, the actual charge will vary upon the driver’s actual car and how much they are charging And then Pasadena uses an hour, as well, $1.00 an hour for the first four, or $2.00 an hour for each thereafter There are commercial enterprises that offer electric vehicle charging, Walgreens is 30 cents per kilowatt hour The Exchange is 25 cents per kilowatt hour for the first three hours, $3.00 thereafter, and the City of Signal Hill is 55 cents per kilowatt hour My understanding is that there are some areas here and there that do free, but those spots get filled up fast And so what we believe we’ve offered is reasonable, allows us to recover our costs We were asked to review a specific code that allows the state of California to offer electric vehicle charging without violating the state constitutional prohibition against a gift of public funds We were happy to receive a legal opinion regarding that, and the legal opinion, if I may summarize, says basically that this code does not apply to us specifically Whether or not that would be a challenge in court, we’d have to see, there is no precedent, but that as written, as strictly written, it does not allow community colleges to offer energy for free to any person without violating that prohibition What questions can we answer for you? – [Vivian] I saw Trustee Baxter’s hand– – [Virginia] But if, okay– – [Vivian] And then Trustee Ntuk Thank you for the presentation I have a couple of questions First of all, first thing that came into my mind is, if I’m a faculty member, and so I park my electric vehicle, I’m not on an three hour time basis, maybe I’m on a six hour or an eight hour time basis And that also means I’ve got to move my car, I don’t have an electric vehicle, I should tell you But I’m just seeing the thought process, and maybe your answer is, don’t park in the EV space, and that solves the whole thing But I am concerned about the idea that you would move your car in four hours I get the three hour class, but some students might have two classes, one after the other It just seems to me that this is gonna make a lot of running around, that’s an observation And how are they going to, is it like a parking meter that you put in for four hours, or you put your credit card in, and then how do you know when to take your credit card out? Am I asking kind of dumb questions? (overlapping chattering) I have the audience, they’re telling me I’m not, okay So the answer to your first question is that you have a parking permit, we’re not gonna ticket you unless you don’t have a parking permit, or unless you’re parking a regularly fueled vehicle, not an electric vehicle So you won’t get a ticket if you have the EV, and you have a parking permit If you’re unable to come and unplug your car from the charger after four hours, and you’re not at a full charge because if you’re at a full charge, you can’t continue to charge your car, right, you’re at fully charged, then you will be charged the $1.50 per kilowatt hour

So if for some reason you’re unable to make it out, you will be charged at the higher rate after you hit four hours, we will not ticket you, you will be charged a greater amount And so that is part of the balance, that if you don’t want that higher rate of charge, you’ll have to come and unplug, or if you decide it’s more convenient for you, I know that some drivers, for instance, live in apartments, and they don’t have the ability to charge at home, they may anticipate that that’s gonna be the extra cost for them The answer to your second question, how do these work, these work a lot like parking permit stations that accept your credit card So when you pull in and you’re going to charge, you’ll follow the instructions on the charge point machine You’ll enter your car, it doesn’t stay there So the machine keeps your card information, and it will continue to charge after you’re gone, as long as your car is accepting the charge So for instance, in my example, if you’ve parked and you just want to top off your charge, and so you plug your car in and you come back four hours later, but if it’s only charged 10 kilowatt hours, then that’s what you’re going to get paid for And so that’s the same answer to either of those, that you’re only being charged for the actual energy that you’ve charged your battery with Now, if at some point, several years down the road, so sorry, when we’re living in the future and we’re all driving electric vehicles, and if those spots are completely used all the time, then yes, maybe we’ll come back to you But it is not our intent to ticket anybody who stays after four hours, you would just get charged more for the energy usage So you’re gonna have separate staff charging, and separate student charging? No, for our proposal, and let me go back to that proposal slide, our proposal is not to have varying rates, we will simply charge each person for what our costs are, which is the 29 cents So again, about half of that 14 cents represents the actual cost of the energy, the remaining is for coverage of our maintenance and licensing and credit card administration fees – [Virginia] Go ahead Thank you so much, I’m really glad to see this come forward, I know this is something we’ve talked about over the last year, and clarified and looked at state legislation and infrastructure, and different matching funds So it’s great to see, getting almost a million dollars from Southern California Edison, and about $800,000.00 is big for us And I guess I have a couple questions, the practicality of it, I appreciate that we have the priority spacing, that the electric vehicle spacing is in the best parking places, and so both, at the multiple campuses and locations, to incentivize people and make it visible, that the option is there I guess a question is, if I have the EV, the correct EV sticker, but I don’t have a parking pass and I’m a guest, do I also gotta plug in and pay for four hours, and go get a $5.00 daily pass? Is that still, will be the process, I guess? That is correct, if you are a guest and don’t have a parking permit, then you would first plug in and pay, or first go to the machine and buy your $2.00 a day So your cost as a non-faculty student or staff would be an additional $2.00 per day parking because that is the parking fee, that is correct I guess I, and just to clarify, the signage will say a four hour parking limit, correct? The signage will be very clear and state the rates for the first four hours, and then the rate for each, for after those first four hours But I guess you don’t need to move your car after four hours? No, it is an incentive to move your car after four hours because if you will allow it to continue to charge, it’s more expensive, yes And then I’m, I noticed our current solar power chargers are not that great, and actually have a backup diesel system that defeats the whole purpose of it What are we gonna do for our own electric vehicle fleet? Do we have chargers for campus vehicles? And I’m not even sure what our percentage of our fleet, besides the golf cart, which is electric We do have electric vehicle chargers at our yard, next to our primary building Those ones we don’t allow for personal use, obviously, because they’re not set up to collect a charge for somebody using them You simply plug in and we pay for the electricity So we have a separate charge, and on your point

with the solar panel charging stations, just as a point of information, the company that owns those and leased them to us for $1.00 for a five year period has gone bankrupt, and we are currently trying to determine who the proper owner of those units are so that we can have them collect them Unfortunately, as you can imagine, it is difficult to do so, and so we are trying to find the proper people to notice so that we may remove them So if you wonder why they are still hanging around, we don’t want to incur any liability for their movement until we can determine who the owner actually is But you are right, that they are not effective, and they actually use diesel fuel as a backup And I guess, last question, the I guess cost recovery on signage and infrastructure that’s not covered by So Cal Edison, is that built into the fees that we anticipate getting a payback period, and then sometime in the future we’ll reduce the fees? Or are all the fines that people would get in the green spots for not being a green vehicle, would that go towards cost recovery of the infrastructure? So with Southern California Edison is giving us is the actual infrastructure itself They are installing it underneath, for instance, at the parking structure here, they actually are going to install it And in the future, we will be bringing to you some approval of easements that are necessary to allow them to do that If, for some reason, we did not like these and we wanted to remove them, we would actually owe Edison money at that point because they’ve spent the money to install them, they own that portion of it What we own, we own the charging stations, and we have to pay administration fees to ChargePoint, which operates the charging stations, and it collects the credit cards So our costs are threefold, they are the maintenance of the charging stations, they are to pay ChargePoint for the administration, and it is for the cost of accepting credit cards And so for those, we ran averages of what the car would charge, of kilowatt hours over a certain amount of time, and we believe 15 cents per kilowatt hour allows us to recover those fees After five years, we expect the maintenance fees to increase because equipment starts to lose its performance after a certain period of time, so yes If we determine that the cost of maintenance of those stations increase, or if at some future point in time, we need to upgrade them because technology changes, then we would reevaluate the cost structure and come back to you And we would be more than happy to present a report an hour, or, excuse me, a year after we implement and start using these stations to let you know, what did that look like? Were we correct on our charges, and did they actually recover our costs? – [Uduak-Joe] Thank you – [Vivian] Any additional questions, Trustee Baxter? Yeah, I just have one, and it doesn’t have to do with the electric charging, I’m sorry, it has to do with the potable water at PCC, because I’m also a big advocate of this And several years ago, they said it was impossible Are you in an agreement with the city to bring reclaimed water to the campus, or are you not, and you may not be in a position to answer that question Well, right now, we are actually utilizing that now, sorry We did a re-landscaped building, is it O? Right, Building O, right across the street, and so we’re using non-potable water now That was one of our projects, non-potable water now to use with irrigation for that particular So yes, I’m in favor of using– So you’re using water from Hamilton Bowl, and bringing it across? Yeah Yeah, oh, no, that’s wonderful And I wondered why that didn’t happen before when I asked, so very good, excellent Any additional comments or questions? Yes, I’m sorry, Student Trustee Jones? Yes, just a couple of quick questions I guess first is, and excuse me if this question was already answered, what spaces, particularly looking at the LAC parking structure, what spaces there have been identified for conversion, are those regular, unmarked stalls, are those staff stalls typically, or? They are a combination of staff and other stalls A great deal of that first floor is currently dedicated to staff, once these become EV charging spots, they are open to either faculty, students, or the public, they no longer have priority for staff use Okay, and– We do believe, though, when we look at the number of spots that we have, and that we’re putting 67 stalls in LAC,

we think that will be more than enough to accommodate the current demand here So I don’t believe that it would be, it would be more than sufficient to accommodate the needs of both students and staff and faculty And then how are these particular spots identified for conversion? Their identification was largely dictated by the installation of the infrastructure by Edison So you can imagine that the further away the spot is from the electrical infrastructure, the more expensive it is to bring that in And so that’s why we are having, there we go, that’s why you see it on the first floor It’s both to have a priority and incentive to drive electric vehicles, but it also allows the least cost to have that infrastructure reach those spots And so that also helped dictate their placeage on the first floor at PCC structure, as well as their locations here in the future You’ll see that we don’t have these spaces way out in the middle, for instance, of the parking lot surrounding Veterans Stadium This is nearer Clark, it’s near the softball field, where there’s already electrical infrastructure that will be installed, so the cost is a huge dictator of where we can put these spots Also, it allows for easy maintenance, coming from the facility team, as well And as far as Southern California Edison, it allows for them to have access to those charge point stations, as well, just in case we do have to do in a repair for, or in a future replacement, so it’s easy access Okay, and then I guess kind of a followup, Vice President Drinkwine, you mention that the 67 spots should be more than enough to cover the demand, what data do we have that I guess predicted or described the demand that we’re anticipating for these spots? Well, first, there are actually new codes for the ratio of electric vehicle charging spots to regular spots, much like we have handicap spots So this is something that we have to be in compliance with, and so we’re following those ratios But we do know anecdotally, from the usage of the solar charging stations, that those were at times unavailable to some folks, but it never was overwhelming the demand And we also know that we can’t predict the future We anticipate greater demand in the future, and at that point, we would revisit And the cost for expanding the number of spots would then be worthwhile, but at this point, this should accommodate our need Okay, and then I think one final question So just from personal experience, I understand that typically, and I’m asking mostly about the LAC structure because, looking here, parking lot 10, I understand, is primarily used by staff and faculty, from my understanding, as well as the P2, that’s an expansion of parking So I don’t anticipate that being as much of a problem, but I am concerned about losing 67, potentially, spots for our students ’cause I know that this structure during the peak times of our classes tends to fill up already, and it’s hard for our students already to get spots And I believe that this may potentially be harmful to our students being able to get in, get sufficient parking, and get to class Do we have any considerations for how are we gonna offset that? It will decrease the amount of spots that are available for regular vehicles, for both students, staff, and faculty The converse relationship to an incentive is that there’s a disincentive, so providing this parking for electric vehicles means that there’s a natural disincentive for regular vehicles There is always adequate parking surrounding Veterans Stadium, it is further away from the classroom buildings, but that is likely where some students would have to relocate, that if there were less parking spaces for regular gas vehicles in the parking structure, then the demand would have to be relocated over to the parking lot surrounding Veterans Stadium All right, thank you Any additional questions? I’d like to thank you for a very comprehensive

and thorough report, just to make sure there’s no misunderstanding, the parking spots don’t come with the electric vehicles, right? I just want to make sure You never know, right, people might think that You did a great job, thank you We’re gonna move onto item 6.1 This is the consent agenda, are there any items that anyone would like to pull off the consent agenda? All right, seeing none, I will entertain a motion to approve the consent agenda – [Doug] So moved – [Virginia] Second All right, it has been moved and seconded to approve the entire consent agenda, any discussion? All right, I’ll call for the vote Donnell Jones? Aye All those in favor? – [Board Members] Aye Any opposed? All right, the consent agenda has been approved in its entirety, item 6.2 is approval of the consent agenda, with items, Madame Secretary, I just want to make sure that we’re gonna do 6.3 to 6.18 in sum, all of them together? – [Doug] I think we did all– [Madame Secretary] Those are all the consent, through 6.18 Oh, I’m sorry – [Doug] Right, 6.1– Oh (overlapping chattering) Got it, I crossed out the wrong item, my bad – [Doug] I think we’re at 7.1 Thank you, Trustee Otto, we’re gonna go onto academic affairs, item 7.1 This is an action item, revised board policy, an administrative regulation, 4014, the study abroad residency, and this is asking that the board approve and adopt the revised policy courses as submitted This is an action item, so I’ll entertain a motion for that – [Doug] So moved [Uduak-Joe And Virginia] Second It has been moved and seconded, any discussion? All those in favor? – [Board Members] Aye Any opposed? Donnell Jones? Aye Sorry, Madame Chair I have to get used to that All right, we’re going to item 7.2, which is, and it’s a first reading of new board policy and administrative regulation 4030, the academic calendar This is a first reading, is there anyone, member of the staff that would like to report on this item? Vice President Scott? Thank you very much, we previously did not have a policy or a regulation on the academic calendar, and we are required to have one So that’s why we created one, we’ve just used the League’s basic language with our own dates, of course, our own decisions that we’ve made as an institution But that’s why it’s here, is that we just, we needed to be in compliance and have a regulation and policy, and so we’ve completed one Thank you very much, any additional discussion or questions for Dr. Scott? All right, that is a first reading, that item will return on the September 11th agenda for a second reading and a possible action We’re moving onto section eight of the agenda, administrative services, 8.1, it’s an MOU between LBCCD and Compton Community College District and Cerritos Community College District for the development of academic and student support services collaboration This is an action item, and at this time, before we open up to the motion and discussion, I’d like to defer to staff, if they’d like to present any information, Dr. Romali? Yes, I had a meeting recently, several meetings recently with staff, Dr. Scott, Dr. Munoz, Mrs. Drinkwine, and we met with the presidents of Compton College and Cerritos College, and we admitted that there’s so much competition between us that we felt that students deserved a great option at all three colleges And to that, and there are a number of regional opportunities that might be available to us, particularly in high cost programs, that either we offer or they offer But according to title five, there need to be various permissions granted for those students out of district to come to us And we wanted to kind of break down the barriers between the three districts, and allow students an opportunity to take advantage of the best programs For example, the Lynwood Unified School District would like to send their culinary students here, they are in the Compton District For example, there are many cosmetology students

in Long Beach that would like a cosmetology program, but we do not have one, so they would like to go to Compton, so what we want to do, we recognized that there are a number of opportunities like this, these are the first two that have come about But there are a number of opportunities like this where we might be able to explore with the Chancellor’s Office Regional Consortiums, and we wanted to have the board approve us, begin talks on exploring what some of these ventures might look like, what they might cost, what type of title five impact there might be, if there’s any Chancellor’s Office discussions that we need to have Cerritos and Compton have already passed this at board meetings I believe either this week or last week They’re super excited to have Long Beach in a regional consortium, it could work much the same way that many regional consortiums work, our Strong Workforce LAOCRC Consortia, just a regional consortium so that students have great opportunities to attend these three great colleges Any additional information from staff before we go to a motion? All right, I’ll entertain a motion on this item So moved – [Doug] Second It has been moved and seconded, to accept this MOU between the three college districts, and I’ll open it up to discussion on this item, Trustee Ntuk? Thank you, I saw Jackie going, I was like, hold on No, thank you so much for bringing this forward, I know we’ve discussed it with Dr. Romali for a little while, and I think about this as somewhat of the closest thing we get to a non-compete agreement, or a regional trade policy, that we’re agreeing to exchange students And in my district, the top three community colleges that students go to is Long Beach City College, Cerritos, and Compton, and so I think it’s an opportunity for us to increase enrollment It’s an opportunity for us to really have, extend the college promise beyond our traditional boundaries I know I’ve spoken with the Board President at Lynwood Unified who’s excited, they’ve come and done a tour here on campus, they want to formalize a partnership with us, and this is the first step down that pathway And we think about when we want to serve the students or the community that’s mostly in need, 90805 has the lowest educational attainment, lowest graduation rates, or high school graduation rates, and it has the highest need community in the country, in our service area, that that’s the population center that we say we want to get to that percent of, 44% of folks should have AA degrees We’re gonna find them in 90805, and so this is a big step towards helping us serve the community better, extend the College Promise, and play nice with our adjacent college districts So I’m really excited to see this move forward – [Vivian] Trustee Baxter? Yeah, I have a question, and Trustee Ntuk, I’m glad you brought this up When you say “Extend the College Promise,” are you talking about the scholarships, or you, because you’re gonna have to get an agreement with the Foundation, whose obligation right now is Long Beach Unified School District boundary Oh, my question, well, I know the state provides additional money for College Promise– So that’s what you’re talking– I know other districts take any high school graduate, not just from a particular school district I know that we haven’t got to that decision point yet, but I think it’s probably something on the horizon we could revisit But that was my thinking of the potential– – [Virginia] I just don’t want to plant something in somebody’s mind without the funding Yeah, this is the beginning, not the decision, yes, I agree (overlapping chattering) It looks like Dr. Munoz– Just to provide clarification, so currently for the Long Beach College Promise, we are offering two years of free college tuition, the first year covered by AB19 funds, which is the California College Promise, second year by the Foundation, and we do provide one year of guaranteed free tuition for students outside of our service area through AB19 So Lynwood would currently get one year of tuition, so we’re reserving the two years commitment for Long Beach Unified at this point – [Virginia] Okay, great, thank you – [Uduak-Joe] Thank you – [Vivian] Any additional comments, yes, Trustee Otto? Well, Mr. Lipton will come back in a minute, I guess I’m interested in why we need a whole (mumbles) and indemnification clause, and what that means in terms of what gets covered You must be an attorney (audience laughs) But I watch a lot of movies with attorneys (background noise drowns out speaker) – [Marlene] I can address that – [Vivian] Vice President Drinkwine? I can address that, I will say that our contracts team is very thorough,

and this is their favorite clause Doesn’t make it good In the event that we, in pursuit of structuring these partnerships, we want to make sure that if we have events at one another’s locations, that there is no restriction on how big that gathering has to be, if we want to do some piloting, we wanted to have this some place right from the get go so that it wouldn’t restrict us if we have some larger event as we’re trying to finalize these agreements and these types of partnerships I guess my only concern is if something happens on one of these other campuses that we have absolutely nothing to do with, do we wind up contributing to a resolution of those problems (mumbles) I can speak to a recent experience, it’s pretty common when we have our facilities use agreements, for instance, Long Beach Unified, when they were using our facilities for graduation, had an injury, and we were not responsible It’s very similar in its structure there, so that if our agents or our people were injured some place else, and we’re accepting responsibility, the same for them, yes – [Doug] Okay, I’m just, it’s– Anybody else, yes, Dr. Romali? I just want to say thank you and commend the board I think this is absolutely groundbreaking beyond our dreams, I’m a firm proponent of Brown versus Board of Education and school choice I think that title five unnecessarily restricts students and their choice, it tracks them according to where they live, which is geography and socioeconomics, and I don’t think any student should have the right to choose, or I believe that every student should have the right to choose where they go to college, not be tracked into a particular college based on where they live So I think this is groundbreaking in wonderful ways, and I want to thank you for your support, I’m very proud Anyone else, yes, Student Trustee? Just really briefly, so I think this is, at least on the surface level, it looks like a great opportunity for the students in these combined areas to be able to get access to programs that they wouldn’t be able to in their home district The only concern that I do have would be in regards to any kind of, I guess, prioritization, or any kind of shortage for the students that in our district in these programs that may be adversely impacted by students coming from other districts How does that, how would that work and how would our students be affected by that? In terms of, you think that possibly students might be negatively affected by the additional students that might come from additional districts? Right, so say if students coming from Compton were to come in and enroll here, but students in our district would no longer have space to be able to get into classes if they fill up, like for the culinary program, for example I think having extra students is what we call a good problem. (laughs) So we definitely have growth, with the enrollment drop that we’ve had, we definitely have capacity to take care of these students, and I say, come one, come all, I think this is the best college in, not only in town, but in the state of California So if they’re gonna come here, I’m gonna find a space for them to be educated – [Donnell] Awesome, thank you Any other comments? So Student Trustee Jones, I agree with your concern and your question, but I also agree with Dr. Romali’s response, that that’s a great problem to have, and I personally know students who do not live in the boundary of our district who attend here very willingly and very eagerly So it is a great problem to have, and we certainly welcome them I have a couple of procedural questions, and if it hasn’t been ironed out, then it’s okay, we can defer this some other time I’d just like to know if a student will be paying tuition at the three other, at the two other colleges, if they’ll be paying one time tuition? And then I’d like to know if they are attending concurrently here, taking classes there, and then the last question that I have is if students, say, for example, if a student is enrolled at LBCC, taking a math class, and doesn’t do well here, but then goes to Cerritos or Compton and takes the same math class, how does that affect the transcript? What will happen in terms of canceling out that class? So those are three questions, I don’t know if you need me to parcel them out No, you’re, those are excellent questions, and we haven’t figured it out yet There will be a lot of different details that we will need to figure out We had all of the different vice presidents at the meetings, there’s a lot of different intricacies that we’re gonna need to work out

and hash out and agree upon, and this agreement says that we’re gonna start exploring We’ll probably do some easier ones first that might be beneficial to students, and then tackle some of the more complex ones Got it, and because of what we talked about earlier with adjunct, it is very possible that a student will take a class at each of the three colleges and have the same professor, because our adjuncts are teaching at all three colleges, so that’s a very probably possibility So just be mindful of that, all right, thank you very much We do have a motion on the floor with a second, this closes the discussion, so at this time, I’d like to call for the vote Madame Secretary– Donnell Jones? – [Donnell] Aye All right, all those in favor? – [Board Members] Aye Any opposed? Well done Well done, thank you, all right We’re gonna move onto item 8.2, and this is a followup to our staff presentation earlier, electrical vehicle charging fee, this is an action item that the board approve the electric vehicle charging fee as submitted, and we just had a very comprehensive report on that It’s 29 cents for the first hour, $1.50 every hour thereafter, so anything additional from staff, or are we good on that, before we call for the motion – [Marlene] Just to clarify, it’s per kilowatt hour Oh, sorry, kilowatt hour, that’s right Okay, all right, so at this time, I’ll take a motion, please – [Uduak-Joe] I move approval Second Any discussion? All right, Madame Secretary? Oh, I’m sorry, you’re gonna have to speak up ’cause I can’t hear your hands, so just get my attention, okay, thank you Will do, no worries, so the only concern that I have here about this is, well, I know that there was the concern about the gift of public funds if we were to decide not to implement a fee And according to what was in the presentation, as it stands right now, it doesn’t appear that we would be in violation of that by not implementing this fee, even though it is, it’s open for challenge in court And so in light of the fact that it does take away, the implementation of these spots could potentially take away from parking for students here, but also the fee could, could be I guess negatively impactful for not only our students, but also our staff and faculty, which would impact our students, I would be against implementing this if we don’t have to I’ll defer that to Vice President Drinkwine, if you’d like to respond to that Thank you, we are required to install these charging stations at the new lot If we forego the installation at the existing lots as described, we would be foregoing the value of the Southern California Edison ChargeReady Program, it would not be offered again My understanding of the legal opinion is that the exemption from the gift of public funds does not apply to us, the legal opinion went onto say that if we offered it free of charge, there’s a possibility we wouldn’t lose in a lawsuit However, I would recommend that we charge a fee Okay, any additional questions? All right, so let’s go ahead and call for the vote, Madame Secretary? Donnell Jones? Nay All those in favor? – [Board Members] Aye Any opposed? All right, the motion carries, so we are gonna go onto item 8.3, revised board policy and administrative regulation 6009, bids and contracts This is a discussion item and a first reading I will defer this to Vice President Drinkwine for information, please Thank you This policy aligns with California procurement code that allows us to, under a $175,000.00 limit, have a not a strictly bid process, but still find the best value That dollar threshold is increased by law, and so what this board policy does is instead of stating the dollar amount in the policy, it actually refers to the code, so that we don’t have to continue to chase the dollar amount So annually, as that threshold is increased, it would automatically be applicable because the policy’s referencing the code, rather than the dollar amount Thank you very much, all right, this is just a discussion item Is there any additional discussion from the board members?

I had a question, with this new California contract code change, does this impact the, and I think our delegation authority for the superintendent president is 175 And I just see the numbers match up the same in the policy, did we need, does it impact that as well? The 175, the code allowed, effective January 1st, 2019, for it to be increased to 200,000 So the law changes occasionally in recognition of inflation, and so rather than bringing you the board policy that references the exact $200,000.00 limit, we’re reverting to code so when that happens again, it will continue to track that increase – [Uduak-Joe] I guess maybe it would be informative in the future if we can update it and just put in parentheses 200,000 so we know, otherwise, you would have to know to go, where in contract code to look up to know what the limit would be I don’t know if that’s possible, even though this is the first reading If we reference the dollar amount, even in parentheses, it means that future changes, we’d still have to bring it back to you again in the future for additional updates So it is your preference, but if we do more than reference the code, and if we put the dollar amount within the actual board policy, we’ll still need to continually update the board policy with each action, so alternately, if you didn’t want to have the code reference, I would recommend that you have the increase to $200,000.00, but that does mean that we’ll have an effort to bring it back to you, but we’re happy to take whatever approach you’d like – [Uduak-Joe] Do you know how frequently it changes? Is it– The code? – [Uduak-Joe] Yeah, I mean– The code was last, let me look at the reference The last update was in 2017, so it was two years ago And so it is up to– Bob has his hand up Bob is saying, thank you, I’m glad you saw Bob waving – [Vivian] Come on up, Bob, thank you – [Doug] Come on down (Bob mumbles) Part of a new plaque program I think we can address your concern, when we do the board agenda items, we usually put contracts under 175 or under for approval Going forward, we could reference the number on the board agenda items, so that if this was approved at 6009, it would automatically update every year without reflecting back, but every board meeting, you would get to see contracts at 200,000 or under, and then when it goes up again, maybe in two years, contracts, 220,000 or under, so you would always be informed of that, that might be a solution to the situation Okay, yeah, I think whatever staff thinks is best It’s just some form of reference, beyond, we all don’t know what that contract code means when we see it, and it just makes it easier for future references Absolutely, and we can certainly provide a report, as that public contract code is amended, so that we can inform you specifically that, effective this date, the limit has been raised, yeah Thanks, thank you, Bob Okay, any additional questions? All right, so this is just a discussion, first reading, it will return on the September 11th agenda as a second reading, and possible action item We will move onto student services, item 9.1, resolution, support of students, experience food and housing insecurity So I’ll defer that to Dr. Munoz for information before we go into this as an action item Thank you, Board President, so what you have before you is a resolution in support of our students who experience food and housing insecurity This resolution essentially has outlined many of the ways in which the college is already currently supporting our students who are experiencing food and housing insecurity, as well as additional measures that we plan on implementing to address these concerns You also have included, in addition to the resolution, an update that provides you with the most recent efforts in what we’re doing to support our students, and this is a joint effort with Vice President Drinkwine, as well as with Aaron Murphy So I’ll take any questions that you may have Anybody have any questions for Dr. Munoz? I have one question, I’m hearing that there’s an event happening at PCC on Friday, there’s a food donation event Who is organizing that event, and is that a board scheduled event, or is that a staff scheduled event?

I don’t know if anybody else has been notified Yes, Joshua Castianos, is he here? He is managing that event, and he is going to be inviting the whole board I will wait to see if he comes back, and we will ask him where we are in that Oh, he’s in the back, okay Okay, so there’s, I just want to be clear, Dr. Romali, Joshua Castianos initiated an event to have food donation at the PCC campus, or what’s happening? And then the board will be invited, and this is the day after tomorrow? Yes, and Josh did not initiate it, my understanding is that the Carpenters would like to have another donations, the Carpenters donated food, I believe about 80 boxes last year They would again like to donate boxes, and Josh is coordinating that, and if he is hearing this on the TV, maybe he can come on out and tell you his plans, but apparently, maybe he isn’t – [Vivian] Okay We’ll get him for you so that he can answer– No problem, and I’ll let him jump right in and respond to that, so you would like to have board presence there on Friday, or? – [Reagan] If you would like to, if you would like to, you’re absolutely more than welcome We do, no invitations have gone out yet, but you will be the first to receive some Okay, so I just want to, because it is two days away, and I think as a courtesy to everybody’s schedule, here comes Josh right now Joshua, thank you so much, you’re coordinating donations of food from Southwest Carpenters this Friday, that’s awesome, we love our Carpenters They’ve done so much for us in the past, and we know that there’s an existing relationship there, so we’re very proud of that I was just kind of thrown off guard because I keep hearing, the PCC campus is in my area, and I keep hearing that there’s something happening Friday, but then the board hadn’t been notified You’re correct, and I had hoped that we could actually have an invitation for you on your dais today, but we were actually a little bit behind, we were trying to get the Campus Community newsletter, we just had College Day, a lot was happening In fact, we just had to kind of reschedule till this Friday, but it was on my to do – [Vivian] Okay, all right, what time is the event, and what time? So it’ll be Friday at noon, and what they’re gonna be doing is bringing about 150 boxes, and thanks to Trustee Zia, kind of got the email from them, so we’re gonna kind of do the same thing as last time, where they come, you bring it, and we’ll be carting it in But you’ll get more, yeah, you’ll get the– What time is that gonna happen? – [Josh] At noon Well, as board chair and as a representative of that part of the district, I will be very happy to be there to accept those boxes on behalf of the district – [Josh] Absolutely, and– I’m sorry, go ahead, and has– – [Josh] We were talking about it, but this is all happening pretty quickly, as far as, like I said, there was a lot that was happening, College Day, the beginning of the school year, and all that, and we’re gonna make it happen, though Okay, and has the press been notified? – [Josh] No, they’re going to, we’re gonna put out a press release– Okay, so there’ll be a press release from the college letting everybody know Just in the future, and I know, College Day was fantastic, and everybody was working around the clock, so I get it, but just, we just need a little bit more notice, and that, this is a huge event, and we want a lot of people to be there, and we want a lot of people to support the Carpenters, and let them know how much we appreciate it So we just want a lot of notice I agree, and in fact, while we were at the board meeting, I’m approving the flier, kind of text that’s gonna go out to the entire campus, but yeah Awesome, thank you, Josh You’re welcome Thank you very much I’d like to speak on– Trustee Zia? Josh, thank you for working on such a great timeline You guys have so much on your plate This isn’t necessarily to recognize any particular trustee, I happen to, based on my relationship, they happened to reach out to me, and wanted to offer, because this has been a project that Trustee Baxter and I have led So they just want to do their good deed, they didn’t even ask for press, so I don’t even know if there’ll be, what their desire is, they just want to drop off some boxes for our students and make it about our students, and make it about the cause So I understand, and I really appreciate all that you guys are doing, and hopefully we can keep the focus on what’s necessary and needed for these students that are truly in need of support And they’ve been the only source, from what I understand, that have been consistently giving this large amount of donations So they didn’t ask for any recognition, but certainly, if we can give them some love,

that would be fantastic Absolutely, and I think any time someone does something great like that, we want to recognize them and let other people know that we do have students that are in need, and there could be other folks that could help us out, as well, or help us– Yeah, and it would be lovely if all the board members can join us, but if their time doesn’t allow, they just want to drop off some boxes, so thank you Josh, you’re a very humble, and we thank you for all your hard work, but I do want to publicly acknowledge you so that the board can brag, I want to brag on you a little bit so that the board can know about your wonderful work Many members of your team pulled all nighters for two and three nights straight leading up to College Day and the beginning of school I know because some other members of this dais were pulling all nighters, and some other members of the audience were coming back at 2:30 in the morning from the Rolling Stones concert to make it all happen, and I just, I know that the board appreciates you very much, and I know that they would like to be aware You’re very humble, but I don’t mind bragging on you any day of the week I appreciate it, Dr. Romali, I feel lucky I come here every day and I think we have a great team, a great vision, your great staff I couldn’t feel any more lucky, and there’s a lot going on, and we try our best to make sure that everybody knows what’s happening But there’s so many good things that are happening, and it’s not a bad thing, that’s the way– – [Reagan] These are all good things, it’s gonna be fun Awesome, thank you very much I think Trustee Ntuk wanted to say something Yeah, not necessarily a Josh, but thanks, Josh Back to the agenda item of the resolution, I think this is really important that we take a policy position It’s great to have charity and talk about it and do fundraisers, but it’s about institutional change, and it’s about progressive institutional change, realigning our budgets, realigning our polices so that we’re, as a function of the government agency, we are better serving that student population And it is an estimate that anywhere from five to 20% of students are homeless, couch surfing, sleeping in their cars, at different family members’ house, or even on the street, that it’s a huge barrier to learning if you’re in that situation And for many students, it’s one missed financial aid check away from that happening to them And I remember my time as a low-income college student, you become, you find creative ways to make ends meet, and so I think it’s important that we talk about being hungry and on campus, and they make sure that folks know about the resources that are available But we gotta really do change, and not be reliant on charity because we, as an institution, have the ability, and I think it’s a state policy mandate, whether it’s opening showers for folks to, for clean hygiene, there’s more that we can do as an institution that’s officially within our governance structure So I think this is a first step, this is not the panacea solution, but in future contracts and future discussions, why are we doing this? Because the board took a declarative stance that this is the public policy of the institution And so I know I had a really good conversation with Dr. Romali in bringing this forward, and thank everybody for what they’re doing, but this is the beginning, then we gotta do a lot more ’cause it’s a big, increasing problem Not just for the college, but in the community at large, with housing insecurity – [Josh] Absolutely, we gotta go head on Yeah, so thank you Thank you very, very, very much to everybody who’s involved, Trustee Jones, Student Trustee Jones, sorry? No, it’s okay, just really quickly, echoing Ntuk’s remarks regarding this resolution, and us moving forward with providing for our students in need, as an aspiring qualitative researcher, I really believe that understanding, or having real life situations to back up what we’re doing here is important And to speak to this being really timely, this past Monday, we had a student actually come over to our ASB office and specifically ask us if we had an office for basic needs, and if we had a basic needs coordinator who would be able to help them with being able to find a place to stay, find a source of food, and other resources to be able to help them continue their education and move forward, but also to live like a human being, and give just, you know, so I think this is really great work, and really timely And it’s really important that we take a policy stance on this moving forward Okay, I just want to point out, when is the basic needs person going to start? So she started this past Monday

Okay, is she going to perhaps, at my suggestion, interview Trustee Zia and I, who have been working on this for a long time, and I’m having, we’re having a meeting Monday night, and I would love to have some kind of coordination, so we’re not duplicating efforts, that we’re all working together toward the same goal and the same model And I’m not trying to boss you around, Dr. Munoz, but I think it’s really, really important For instance, Donnell, any time any student comes to you, call me or Trustee Zia and the new coordinator But if, and I’m not being mean, but if the person does, here’s a list, you go and you go find, because what they’re gonna find out, ’cause I’ve done it myself, is you call here, you call here, you call here, you call here, and there isn’t anything So that’s why, if we can have a concerted effort and we can raise money to help, we’re willing to do it, so we just need that concerted effort I appreciate the comments, and let me assure you, great minds think alike ’cause I, following board protocol, spoke with Dr. Romali, and so my intent was to email you next week to set up a meeting to discuss how we could coordinate efforts so that there is an alignment And so that is definitely in place, as well as, we will be, as we begin to develop these new relationships with some of the different resources, one of the big barriers that we’re seeing right now with the food banks is because the Foundation and the charter of the Foundation, it doesn’t specifically say, serving underserved communities, that we cannot receive food from the food banks And so many of the community colleges had to redo their articles of incorporation so that they could receive food bank distributions So it’s really complex (mumbles), I have a lot of different things to update you on But we will be able to work in that concerted effort And I’m sorry, I did not mean to boss you around, I know I should have gone through President Romali who can boss you around, but we’re here together– She already bossed, she already told me, she gave me my marching orders, and she said I needed to reach out to the two of you, so that was definitely set for Monday You know, if I may? I want to invite all the trustees to join Trustee Baxter and I, and speaking of institutionalizing this, to start off by, we donate a portion of our stipend to scholarships for the homeless students, and I invite other trustees, if they truly, if they want to also help with the scholarship fund, there’s certainly opportunities to do that Thank you, thank you, I have been donating all of my stipend to the journalism scholarships, so it’s a little biased because I come from that department, so my monthly meeting stipend has been donated to journalism students So I really appreciate Trustee Zia’s invitation, and it’s a very noble one, and it’s something we hope to continue doing Is there any other discussion on this item before we continue? All right, so we’re gonna call for the question, this is an action item, I do have the resolution in front of me, so Madame Secretary, please? [Madame Secretary] You need a motion? We do, there was a motion, there was a motion and a second I sure don’t have it No, I don’t think there was– I’ll make the motion (Doug mumbles) Second All right, we have a motion and a second on the floor to adopt this resolution If that’s the case, then we were all out of order because we were asking questions and having discussion, I thought it was just staff discussion, so– [Madame Secretary] I think I fell asleep Mr. Lipton, we should all be called on that Okay, so we have a motion and a second on the floor, there will be no more discussion ’cause we’ve already discussed it So Madame Chair, please call for the vote [Madame Secretary] Donnell Jones? – [Donnell] Aye All those in favor? – [Board Members] Aye Any opposed? All right, this wonderful motion carries – [Virginia] I did not hear, Trustee Otto, did you make the motion, ’cause I heard Trustee Zia – [Sunny] I made the motion It was so long ago, I can’t remember if I made it– Your voice was so deep, was it you, Sunny? (overlapping chattering) I’m sleepy and losing my mind too All right, so now we’re gonna move onto item 9.2, which is the student transportation update This is an information item only, and this is Vice President Dr. Munoz Great, thank you, so again, you have before you an update on our buss pass pilot program Since the start of fall, we’ve expanded our bus pilot program this semester to include up to 1,000 students who would be eligible

for the transportation for the bus pass And so there’s a brief update, as well as a Frequently Asked Questions that’s posted online for students for your reference And so I’ll gladly take any questions that you may have – [Virginia] Can I just say one thing? – [Vivian] Absolutely I want to salute Trustee Ntuk because we have been working on this for years, and I told him, when he brought it up and I didn’t believe it would happen, that I would be nice to him for 24 hours, so I’m almost done (overlapping chattering) But anyway, it’s fantastic, fantastic (Doug mumbles) Thank you very much, Dr. Munoz, I know that this has been a long time coming, and I know that you and other staff members have worked really hard on this Was there another comment on this side? Hey, you guys are gonna have to speak up, I need to know, Trustee Ntuk? Yes, no, thank you, I know the city budget is yet to be adopted and there’s a proposal for about $350,000.00 in funding towards bus passes, collectively, Long Beach Unified, Long Beach City College, and Long Beach State Do we know yet how that will be apportioned to us, or? So my understanding is that the mayor’s office will be reconvening a work group meeting in the coming month, and so we’ll have more information when that becomes available Okay, and then the other thing, I didn’t notice that the Bus Pass Pilot Program lacks its full name – [Mike] That’s right We did, as the maker of the motion, and the board voted to call it the Strong Beach Bus Pass Pilot Program, I was disappointed to see it wasn’t referenced in our– – [Mike] I will make sure– I got about a dozen phone calls about, “When’s the bus passes coming out?” And I was hoping it would be on there, but it wasn’t I will make sure that we amend the FAQs, as well as when we do our fliers, that we add that there Maybe we can get Josh’s team to develop a logo, as well – [Uduak-Joe] Great, thank you (overlapping chattering) – [Vivian] Yes, Student Trustee? Just to kind of continue on, again, this is a great opportunity for our students Personally, this is a great help to me, as well I was actually just, I received an email saying that I would be eligible to receive one of these passes, due to being a member of the EOPS program And so I’m really grateful that this program is taking place and moving forward, and I’m hoping that this is successful, and that we’re able to build upon and expand in the future Thank you, again, Trustee Ntuk, for your leadership on this Sure, thank you, thank you so much But if I can, and I don’t know if you mentioned it, and I think Dr. Romali shared, the demand was half of what we thought, how did, did we have to issue more? So we are rapidly approaching the end of our first week, and so we’ll have some more concrete numbers I don’t know exactly how many to date we’ve issued (mumbles) ’cause I know the cashier’s been tracking that So, but what we can do is file this in a followup communications through Dr. Romali that will kind of update where we’re at at the end of the first week We have been dispersing passes since August 19th, and so I expect that we should hit close to the target, but we’ll have a better indication by the end of the first week – [Virginia] Was it that we hit target and we were asking for more passes? I will say that our supply depleted to the point where we called Transit and we said we needed more So they initially gave us 1,000 stickers They were able to give us an additional 100 stickers, and have promised us another big batch within a couple of weeks, so we have not yet run out We did indicate on our communications to the students that there were a limited amount immediately available, but we are prepared to continually give them to all eligible students, as long as there is the demand, which is part of the purpose of the pilot It’s not just the sticker itself, but then it’s tracking the actual ridership that will determine the cost, but we are happy to continue to give them to all eligible students Thank you very much, anything else on that item? So question on that, it’s an information item, but will it return to the board? Is that an ongoing, fluid item? Will we ever need to vote, take action on that? What we did is we had indicated that all of the major projects would receive updates when we had them, ideally monthly, but if we didn’t have them, we would wait until we had an update This one is considered concluded in terms of its action, but we will bring regular reports back, perhaps semesterly, in terms of how are things going, what kind of bragging numbers can we have, because it’s sound like these are gonna be some real bragging numbers and bragging rights And we’ll bring that to you, probably, I think, on a semester basis might be a good idea

No problem, thank you, and there’s no need to vote on that Okay, all right, so we’re gonna move onto our reports, we’re gonna start with our Academic Senate President, item 10.1 Good evening, thank you, I was able to join fellow Academic Senate presidents at the Statewide Academic Senate California Community College’s Leadership Institute in Sacramento recently It was a wonderful opportunity to work with colleagues and meet the representatives of area D, to which Long Beach City College is a part of as a regional group Many terrific workshops were held, and we even had a meeting with the Chancellor and his staff, many who used to work at Long Beach City College, so it was fun As you’re aware, faculty professional development falls under the purview of the Academic Senate One of our most fun activities is the new faculty orientation, the college welcomed 14 new faculty this fall, and they were all able to participate in this summer’s orientation On Wednesday, August 14th, we spent the day on the Liberal Arts Campus, and on Thursday, August 15th, we spent the day on the Pacific Coast Campus Workshops were held, campus tours were given, and lots of helpful information was disseminated It’s a wonderful group of folks, and they are excited to be at Long Beach City College, and they are anxious to champion the success of our students You will have an opportunity to meet all of them at the September 11th board meeting Many individuals to thank, but in particular, Dr. Cathy Scott and Dr. Mike Munoz, for helping us kick off the first morning of orientation Dr. Romali joined us the next day on the Pacific Coast Campus, the Newport cohort is still talking about how they can’t believe they had you all to themselves for a morning, it was the highlight for them So I thank you for the generosity of your time The Management Association, under the leadership of Aaron Murphy hosted the lunch at the LAC campus, and the Faculty Association under the leadership of Diana Okimachi, hosted the lunch on the Pacific Coast Campus A very special thank you to our own senior office assistant, Catherine Conchata, who we lovingly refer to as Catherine the Great, for all of her work behind the scenes for the two days, and it flowed so smoothly, it was wonderful As mentioned earlier, on Tuesday evening, excuse me, October, I’m already wishful thinking, August 20th, Dr. Scott hosted an orientation for the adjunct faculty I attended on behalf of the Senate, and shared the particulars of their individual contractual obligations reflects The highlight of the evening, as Karen mentioned earlier, was the presentation by adjunct faculty to their peers on best teaching practices Congratulations, Dr. Scott and her team, it was a very successful event This year’s College Day was special in many ways For those of us who call the Pacific Coast Campus home, it was a treat to welcome everyone to PCC Much has changed on campus since the last time PCC hosted College Day, buildings have been remodeled, the landscaping is beautiful, classrooms have the latest technology, and the trades areas are ready to open their doors once again While there is much to celebrate as a campus, listening to the updates from management made it clear that there is much to celebrate as a college Classified staff, adjunct faculty, tendered faculty, and administration have worked incredibly hard this last year to address budget deficits, dropping enrollment, diversity and equity issues, lagging success rates in completion ratios in curriculum implications due to 8705 It was evident by the presentations, certainly by Dr. Scott and by Dr. Munoz, that we have met these challenges head on, and we’ve made amazing progress as a college team All of us should be proud for the work, for a job well done, and going forward, we should let those accomplishments inspire us to continue the great work that was begun last year, as we go into this academic year, thank you That was an excellent report, Jeri, thank you very much Item 10.2, Classified Senate President Hello Tonight, rather than delivering a regular report, even though that was fabulous, I wanted to talk about some of the conversations that we’ve been having lately, and I’m gonna be a little self indulgent In my 26 years as an LBCC colleague, I’ve never seen such enthusiasm, sense of purpose, and sheer devotion to our constant state of improvement There’s a new focus on who are students really are, and we now have the tools to discover where they came from, what they need, and how to serve them And on College Day, during the Vice President’s reports especially,

I looked around and I saw administrators, faculty, and classified professionals excited and fired up by this onslaught of positive change Many colleagues, including myself, are participating in changes we have dreamed about for years, whether it’s a Chancellor’s Office initiative, new technology, or the influence of the many new, incredible colleagues that have joined us in the last few years, we embrace it The Classified Senate will continue to work on ensuring that our classified professionals are well informed, engaged, and remembered as equal partners during this exciting time But what we’re really thinking about is what really matters is creating a collegial atmosphere, where all members of the college community are treated with respect We also have better opportunities for relationships with our statewide colleagues and colleges in the local area, something my own department has done in the last few years, and something, was one of the things I always dreamed about, visiting our counterparts at local colleges And our department, being directly involved in a state-wide initiative, has been an incredible experience It’s an exciting time to be a colleague in the California Community Colleges, and to paraphrase something Dr. Romali once told us, what we do in the largest institution of higher learning in the world can change the world, thank you C.C., that was beautiful, thank you very much I appreciate that, those are great words All right, item 10.3, the Board of Trustees reports Trustee Otto, do you have a report you’d like to share? (Doug mumbles) Say welcome back, everybody, it’s the beginning of a school year, which is always a very exciting time, and you can sense it on campus I want to compliment Dr Romali on College Day, which I think was a great home run in many, many different ways, over the top and understated at the same time So it was great, and given the lateness of the hour, and all we did, I’m gonna stop – [Vivian] Very good, thank you, Trustee Ntuk? – [Uduak-Joe] No report Trustee Baxter? Oh, of course I have a report First of all, I do want to congratulate President Romali and all the hard working staff for a fantastic College Day, I was not there, but I was there in spirit, and I was sending all my very good wishes And one of the things I wanted to point out is that if you looked at the video, which our wonderful Communications Department put out, two of the things that the people said when they were interviewed, that we have a friendly campus and a clean campus, and that both has to do with, I believe, the Classified staff, number one, because if they’re not there, doing their work, we don’t have a beautiful campus, and I think lots of times they don’t get enough credit for that And then number two, friendliness, I think that means everybody, and it’s so important when somebody walks in the door, especially if they’ve never been to college before, that we all are friendly, and I truly believe we are the friendliest place, and a lot of that has to do with the Welcome Centers, and the fact that there’s a sign out that says Welcome, and signs that say Ask Me So I really want to salute you in your leadership for doing that, now I need to go into my sales pitch Okay, the Art Department is having the fifth biannual art exhibit from September 12th to the October 12th, opening night is, I better take off my glasses so I can read, September 14th, from five to nine Now, while you’re there on September 14th, you can go, no, it isn’t September 14th, it’s September 19th, you can go to El Pollo Loco and help benefit the Library Learning Resources Associates This El Pollo Loco is in Lakewood, but it’s not the one on Paramount, it’s the one going that way, and I don’t remember ever seeing it, so I’m gonna go check it out myself But the Library Learning Resources Associates raised money obviously for the library, the learning centers, and they do a super job So please go out and support them Also, I thought it was really good that there were signage up, if you qualify for a free bus pass, go to the Welcome Center Now, it said LAC, is it only at LAC? So both campuses, okay, so go to the Welcome Center if you want to sign up for a bus pass, to all the public that’s listening Then, I can’t believe this, there are openings at the Pacific Coast Campus Child Development Center,

which is a fabulous, fabulous program, and if you have young children between the ages of three and five, send your children there, and learn parent education Then on September 13th, Friday, September 13th, there will be a celebration of life for Joan Zuckerman During the summer, I announced this, it’s from 11:30 to two in D104, and Joan was a life science department head and longtime faculty member there And then, President Malauulu, I would like to ask, and Jeri Florence will, may be surprised by this, that we close the meeting in memory of Sterling Clayton Sterling Clayton, well, Doug, you would know Sterling, right, yeah, Sterling Clayton was a remarkable man He happened to be a personal friend of mine He went to Long Beach City College in 1946, received an Ebell Club scholarship for $50.00, and he said that changed his life He went on to Stanford, graduate from Stanford, I don’t know where he went to law school, but he said the teachers at Long Beach City College changed his life, and now I’m gonna cry Anyway, he went on to become a very successful attorney He was president of the Foundation, he’s in our Hall of Fame, and may he rest in peace Thank you very much, Dr Baxter, we are honored to adjourn in his memory, Trustee Zia, do you have a report? Okay, I have a couple of brief items I’d like to report First of all, welcome, everybody, to this academic year, hopefully you had a great, restful summer There are two events that I’d like to just wholeheartedly commend staff on, fantastic, incredible work all across the board On August 6th, our campus hosted a United States Senator, as many of you know, with Senator Bernie Sanders that chose, his campaign chose our campus to host a rally We hosted, I believe it was 5,400 students, that’s a rough estimate (Uduak-Joe mumbles) Excuse me, not students, attendees, and with no incident, it was a very well-organized, well-orchestrated event, the campus was beautiful, it was clean, it was, everything flowed smoothly I’d like to commend the Communications Team for the branding that was very visible, LBCC everywhere, T-shirts, students behind the Senator Regardless of what your political views are, we are a public institution, and we welcome the opinions of varying political sides, and I know that we have hosted presidential candidates in the past, and we hope to do so again in the future for whatever other campaign or platform is out there We just want to expose our students to that Dr. Romali, you and your team, the administration, facilities, wow, I mean, it was just incredible, just, that August 6th event, and we were dealing with a lot of external factors, because we weren’t actually hosting it, so to speak, but we had to coordinate with the campaign and the campaign staff and security So it was a multi-prong event, and it was fantastic I would also like to commend our Long Beach Police Department for the tremendous work that they did in keeping our campus secure It was said that night that this was the safest place to be in the LBC, and we got an incredible tour of the Command Center, and I know that we were going to have a guest today, special guest, I won’t blow that one, I kind of spilled the beans early yesterday But we were gonna have a special guest tonight, but unfortunately, there was a schedule conflict, so that special guest will be here at a future board meeting But just incredible, incredible, fantastic, I was very proud of every single person I can’t say it enough Last Friday was College Day, and C.C., everything you just said, I want to just reiterate There is a renaissance happening on this college campus, there is an awakening of enthusiasm and energy, I see it, I feel it It’s not just with the faculty and staff and the administration, but the students There just seems to be, when you walk the campus, I was actually on campus yesterday, and I was on campus today, and I could feel it I could feel the enthusiasm and the energy

Perhaps it’s that new school year, maybe in a couple of weeks, it won’t be as palpable, but it was certainly very palpable the last couple of days, right, everybody’s got on their back to school new clothes But it’s just amazing to see all of the things that are happening, I’ve never seen morale on this campus higher, and I understand that there are issues that we’re working with in different departments, and we’re working through, and that’s okay because everybody is still having a say, and they have a seat at the table, and they’re able to air out those concerns, and we’re able to work together, ’cause really, what we want is we want to make sure that this college continues moving forward I loved everything about College Day, by the way, it was fantastic, but my favorite part was that I’ve never seen a College Day have a theme before, and I loved the theme of explore Whoever’s brain child that was, I’m gonna guess it’s Josh because Josh always has these great ideas, but maybe it was somebody else (overlapping chattering) Was it Jeff, okay, so Jeff is like, “Wait a minute, I have good ideas, too.” (laughs) So College Day happening at PCC campus, that’s in my area that I represent, and I loved the theme of Explore PCC because sometimes, we feel like that wicked stepchild, right, we feel like the redheaded stepchild, where we don’t get the love on the PCC campus So the fact that we had College Day there, the theme of Explore, everybody was in costume We all had a different Explore theme happening with what we were wearing, it was just fantastic My favorite was Vice President Scott, she was Dora, Dora, Dora the Explorer And it was just great, costume backpack, everything, she had the little, what’s the monkey’s name? (overlapping chattering) Boots, she had Boots the monkey, she had the map My kids grew up on watching Dora, so I was like, “I know you’re Dora “’cause you got the whole shebang.” (Dr. Scott mumbles) Yes, and the movie, so just, to everybody who is a part of this college family, from the administration, all constituent groups, faculty, staff, just everybody, every department, wow What a great start, just amazing So have a great year, everybody, and with that, we’re gonna move onto item, oh, and by the way, I usually post a picture in my report, but I’m not posting pictures because the picture I would have posted is in this Campus Community Bulletin, and it’s the picture of the Explore at PCC That’s the only picture I would have shared, and of course the Bernie Sanders picture But thank you, everybody All right, we’re going onto 10.4, do we have any item to discuss with board travel? – [Uduak-Joe] I do Trustee Ntuk? Yeah, I had a question for Jack Lipton on our policy and administrative regulations And I don’t know if you have them available, but I was reading policy 2017 and administrative reg 2017 on board education, where it says, “The participation and ongoing education “in professional development,” is in that board policy And then administrative reg says that it’s designated, it’s a Superintendent President’s responsibility for administration, I know we have conferences coming up this year, I’m trying to figure out trainings What is your interpretation of that regulation as it applies to education, professional development, and travel for conferences? I’m sorry, Trustee Ntuk, I don’t have the language in front of me I can’t really comment– I don’t have the language in front of me Historically, for the last two and a half years, the board approves where they want to travel, CCLC, ACCT, and then I approve all of their expenditures afterward, but I don’t have it in front of me That’s been past practice We can get it up for you, though, it might jog your memory a little bit while we’re (quiet overlapping chattering) Yeah, I just bring that up (overlapping chattering) because I was unaware that the board would vote on who would go to travel, and what conferences We did have a lot of discussion last year about travel, but in my reading of it, it’s up to the Superintendent President to administrator 2017 I know we did the policy, I don’t know how much the administrative reg changed recently, but– – [Jack] Trustee Ntuk, your question’s on the administrative regulation? Well, so to me, I see them as two peas in a pod, pairing together, usually there’s a policy and a joining administrative regulation So when I read policy 2017 on board education, it says, “Every board member’s supposed to participate “in ongoing education and professional development.” It doesn’t say about a board vote, or an allocation, or what constitutes, I mean, there it goes in detail about policy

and board governance and so forth as in the second half of the policy, but in the administrative reg, the first part of it, 2017.1, it says, “This is administered by the,” or, “the Superintendent President is responsible “for the administration,” so I was just trying to get clarity I don’t recall voting for approving people to go to conferences in the past, but– I don’t think it’s appropriate for the superintendent to pick and choose who goes to conferences, and what conferences, they’re my bosses, and I don’t think it’s appropriate for me to say whether they can or cannot go to a conference When I read, Trustee Ntuk, 2017.1 of administrative regulation, my presumption would be that the administration that the Superintendent President does is purely, I wouldn’t say clerical, but processing the travel that the trustees had taken, in terms of processing, reimbursements, making sure their travel arrangements are made, et cetera Those are not things that trustees would need to do themselves, but when I read they’re responsible for administering the regulations, I don’t see that as a decision making authority, if that’s what the question is I see that, and I think I’ve pointed out before that the regulations in the 2000 series, in my view, are within the jurisdiction of the board itself, as opposed to other administrative regulations So I guess it would probably be good to agendize a future item to kind of delineate who’s gonna go to what this year I know there’s, I think there’s something in San Francisco for the national ACCT, it’s coming up– We do, we have an ACCT coming up, we have CCLC typically November and January, (mumbles) not too far behind that There’s a couple, yeah Well, it would be up to the board itself to determine budgetary issues and allocations of funds to trustees, that would be, obviously, a board function Okay, ’cause I went to all the new trustee stuff last year, but I was supposed to, or the policy says that a new trustee goes to new trustee training, which I did, but I didn’t know how it got approved, or I don’t recall it being approved before It’s Jackie Hahn, the Board Secretary, provides a calendar of the events that are sort of preapproved, and that’s on there, all the CCLC trainings are already on there, and perhaps you can speak to the other trainings that are already on there that are approved in a batch And you also got recently notified from the League on upcoming in Riverside (mumbles) Virginia Baxter, Dr. Baxter is attending She let me know that, but I haven’t heard from anyone else Is that in November? (overlapping chattering) November, in Riverside (overlapping chattering) Yeah – [Reagan] Yeah, so she, Jackie– So I’ll send you an updated list tomorrow, or the current list, or just to remind you again I might have missed it on my emails, but yeah, that’d be great, if you could send it Yeah, she sends out every year a list of all the different ones that are automatically approved that you guys go to every year, the CCLC– [Madame Secretary] It’s the standard one The standard one, there’s ACCT, if there’s any, and you guys approved– That would be different Yeah, if there’s anything extra, you guys decide what you want to do, like (mumbles) or whatever you want to do (overlapping chattering) Okay, all right, thank you for the clarification – [Reagan] Sure Anything else on item 10.4, board travel? All right, item 10.5, do we have any trustee committee reports? The only thing that I would like to do under trustee committees is I would like to direct the Facilities Subcommittee meeting to meet some time before September 11th This was a request that I had back in June that still hasn’t happened, and we’re at the end of August, so we’re gonna– (Reagan mumbles) Before September 11th, yeah, so we’re gonna have a Facility Subcommittee report come out and meet about the student workforce agreement All right, anything else under trustee committees? All right, so do we have any public comments on non-agenda items? Seeing none, at this time, we do have to go into a second closed session, however, I’m going to adjourn the public component of this meeting, just to let all of you off the hook, and the staff, I will not come back out and report on any action In fact, Madame Secretary, can I defer reporting of any action to the next meeting, is that allowable? Okay Does that get us off the hook, in case there is action, would I be able to defer that to a future meeting, the future meeting? If it’s not action? Trustee Malauulu, if there is action that the board takes in closed session,

that’s reportable under the Brown Act, then it needs to be reported right after the board meeting But not every action that the board takes is reportable under the Brown Act Okay, got it, okay So we are going to adjourn the public section of the meeting and go into closed session I will not come back out, so you guys are all off the hook, but just so you guys know, it is 9:44, and I’m adjourning this meeting The next, sorry, my bad, procedure The next regular meeting of the Board of Trustees will be held on September 11th, 2019, right here, closed session at 4:30, open session at 5:30, and we adjourn tonight in memory of Mr. Sterling Clayton Thank you all (gavel bangs)
