Strong Workforce Update:

  • Year 1 State of funding $200 million

    • Over 3/4th of our 28 projects are complete and the rest are almost complete.  Several projects are not complete due to issues related to Section 508 Compliance.

    • Andrew Maz remarked - The Section 508 Compliance issue has become a major hurdle for CTE Programs on campus.  There is no real process here on campus, and we need to look at what the CSU’s are doing, because their turnaround time in ~ 6 weeks. A survey will be sent to figure out or to implement a process. (anonymous)

    • Reminder of requirements for advisory committee meeting:  two meeting per fiscal year must provide a sign-in sheet, agenda and minutes to be turned in to the CTE Office and your Division Office, have a minimum of three industry representatives.

    • Program Reports – again the CTE Office hoping the three questions would be incorporated into Program Review Plus, but we do not see that happening yet.  The CTE Office will notify the division chairs if their program is up for reporting.

    • Conference and Travel – The memo provided explained the process.  Some of the faculty were concerned that they could not meet the deadlines because they do not know the exact date of the conference or meeting.  The CTE Office explained that they can submit a conference request with the month of conference with a “TBA” of the exact date, and once they have the exact date they can notify Kathy via email and she will update the conference request with Fiscal Services.  Just a reminder the conference request form is an estimate of expenditures for the conference, so it is ok to overestimate the cost as long as it is reasonable and necessary.  Refer to memo for additional information.
