Lisa Scott

Delmi -- we don't know yet. We are following the tier information very closely, as well as guidelines from the county health department and the Chancellor's Office.

Not certain if folks had an opportunity to read about the special treatment of applicants at UC Berkeley (BOT family, friends, staff & faculty family, children of large $ donors, etc). chosen over applicants who actually had better GPA, minority, etc. This special treatment continues inequity. >;-(
Kristina Tedesco EOPS ROCKS

wow, I haven't heard about the uc Berkeley applicants grace, i'll have to read about that
Dana Young
26:59
YAY! Vote Vote Vote
Judy Rodriguez

@Mike Screening question limited participation to students who are enrolled in a four-year higher-learning institution. Page 4 of the report

NiKki you are doing a great job and just being understanding and supportive is HUGE, YOU are doing more than that.
Kim Scott
34:06
Hi Nikki, I am not an educator. In my personal situation, I've tried to be flexible with people and meet them where they are. It's probably harder to do in an academic setting, with assignments, coursework/load, etc.
Kim Scott
34:50
I'm with Celia. People (myself included) can only handle so much.
Kim Scott
35:23
I think we have to give ourselves and one another grace. And support. The heartfelt support and care that you're showing is HUGE!
Nikki Dequin
35:40
Thank you Kim for sharing this. I can relate to how difficult it is to focus when you are being pulled in so many directions!
Nikki Dequin
35:56
Thank you Celia!
Kristina Tedesco EOPS ROCKS
36:19
thank you both for sharing, I needed to hear all this.
Cherise Mantia

@Kim Scott, I agree with giving ourselves grace and reminding our students that they deserve to give themselves grace. Sometimes, we need a reminder.
Michael Renzi

I need to attend CSEA negotiations -- Nice discussion.
Lisa Scott

Thanks Mike

thank you

I'm sure most students are worried that the classes may be too overwhelming and they would rather wait than get a poor grade.
Jan BERNSTEIN CHARGIN
40:53
We have to counter the social messaging that says that college is not for everybody and not everyone deserves to go. Too many people have internalized this.
Celia Marquez
44:46
Yes college is for everyone. The community college offers programs for students with strengths in service areas. We will ALWAYS need service professions: HVAC, Cosmetology, dental care, etc.
Jan BERNSTEIN CHARGIN

When I was in high school a neighbor told me I shouldn't try to go to college because I would just be getting married and having babies, and that I shouldn't take a spot from a man who really needed it to support his family.
Lisa Scott

@Jan-wow
Celia Marquez
46:05
Wow I heard that too. We need to teach tenacity. GANAS
Grace Cardinalli

I'm FLABERGASTED that this mentality still exists, Jan.

glad to see you join us Alphonso!

DIVINE TIMING, ALPHONSO!!

GRACE - Well, it WAS a number of decades ago!
Kim Scott

Submitting work electronically is super challenging....And it's really hard when you can't just pop in and get help face-to-face. Calling or getting help through zoom is just not as effective. I can relate to what Alphonso is experiencing.
Lisa Scott
49:50
Alphonso-can you reach out to Dr. Rose's assistant as well at lscott@gavilan.edu
Nikki Dequin
49:56
I have created little videos to send to students who need assistance on submitting or even finding assignments.

Thank you Alphonso for being REAL
Jan BERNSTEIN CHARGIN
51:21
Nikki, can we post those videos on the website so others can share them too?
Cherise Mantia
51:24
I love that we have colleagues on who are able to help students during this forum!

Keep it Alphonso!
Nikki Dequin
52:44
@Jan I suppose so. I would imagine that Peter or others in DE have better videos than what Ive created :) Honestly, I did one in my car to send immediately for a student in need.
Tony Mirenda
54:06
THAT IS AWESOME JAN!
Dora
54:39
This so amazing.. I love all the support we are showing to our students. What a blessing to work for Gavilan.

Jan BERNSTEIN CHARGIN

Alphonso, this sounds so frudtrsting. Hang in there!
Celia Marquez
01:02:55
It sounds like we need another how to video on connecting with instructors
Jan BERNSTEIN CHARGIN
01:03:23
Great idea Celia!
Celia Marquez
01:03:24
how to connect with students for instructors so much going on
Lisa Scott
01:03:33
Yes-seems to be a common theme
Kim Scott
01:05:55
Thank you Dr. Rose & Team!
Nikki Dequin
