Updates Shift to Banner, a student registration system, tentatively scheduled for Fall 2014 The teacher evaluation cycle needs to begin again. – Once every three years for continuing teachers with prior successful evaluations – Once per term for new instructors without evaluations – The Academic Senate is currently discussing the policies on this. – May begin in either winter or fall 2014

Enrollment Trends in CE ESL Enrollment is measured by FTES (full-time equivalent students). 2008/ / / / /2013 Fall Winter Spring Summer Total: (-7%) (-7%) (-20%) (-15%)
Impact on Scheduling Some reduction in class offerings: not all sites at all times of day. Consolidation of class sections where indicated. Reduction of days offered at some sites to two days a week instead of four Instructor assignments may not be as full or as consistent as during peak enrollment periods. It is unlikely that any teacher will have more than 15 hours per week.
Potential Impact of Immigration Reform Rapid expansion of program Teachers at maximum hours Wider range of courses offered Caveat: If reform does not pass, we need to tighten up unless and until enrollment starts to grow again.
