@Teresa, Thank you for putting the "ask" to all faculty
Lesley Bonds

Faculty: you can check your rosters in Starfish to see if you have students who haven't yet registered or who haven't hit the momentum points. Starfish auto-raises some of those flags for you so your work will then only to ping the student and see if they can take one more class. We highly recommend promoting the Golden Four for ADT students - English, math, critical thinking, and communication. There are many courses open.

program mapper is a great tool
Lesley Bonds

Yes, @Isabel. Program Mapper here: https://programmap.bakersfieldcollege.edu/academics
Lesley Bonds

@Billie Jo, I agree. If anyone needs help accessing Starfish to view your rosters and make contact, feel free to shoot me an email and i'll get you setup with a one-on-one tutorial

Students look up to their discipline faculty. Faculty reaching out to the students in their classes, specifically majors, have the most impact on student progression and completion. :)

Richard McCrow

Bakersfield College's growth averaged about 5-6 percent a year over the past 6 years. The normal growth increase during an economic downturn is around 5-6 percent. Are we preparing for a 12-13 percent increase over the next year???
Nick STrobel
53:10
The 50% law is for the district as a whole.
Lesley Bonds

FON = Faculty Obligation Number... a requirement set by the state

Red bar means what?
Teresa Mcallister
56:16
@Richard, wouldn't that be wonderful. It's possible that the online component is currently making people hesitant. Hopefully, we can come up with creative synchronous workshops or other ways to help students feel more comfortable with online learning.
Zav Dadabhoy
56:34
Rich, historically, there has always been a growth during rough economic times. Our current enrollment numbers are indicative of a temporary disruption in what students are used to at BC. Once we help them through the shifting classroom environment, we should be fine. The KEY as a guided pathways college is to HELP students and GUIDE them through the change process.
Teresa Mcallister
57:05
@Aricia - that reminds me of one of my favorite movie lines from Bambi- can you guess it?
Zav Dadabhoy
57:30
ALL of us should reach out to our students and support them — guiding and encouraging them to continue on their academic journey
Deborah Rosenthal

I have a number of students that told me that need f2f.

@zav you make a great point, our students need to know BC is still here, still open, and ready to assist.

Wifi expansion is Measure J funded.
Chris Glaser
58:26
Thank you for that clarification, Zav. That's exactly what I've been hearing from students: The shift to online was jarring and they're not hesitant to add classes with the uncertainty. I know I have been spending a lot of time reassuring students and helping them find their resources so they feel comfortable with these recent adjustments.

@Gayle, be sure to flag any students who need technology or other materials at home as a student of concern with Student Life. @Nicky and his team are working with financial aid to get each student what they need.
Nick STrobel

Still using old budget allocation formula
Lesley Bonds
01:02:34
@Krista, we have more chromebooks/laptops on the way (they're in high demand everywhere so they're coming in waves). Jennifer Achan and her financial aid team have also made some meaningful changes to account for laptops as a supply for qualifying students.
Teresa Mcallister
01:03:21
@Budget Committee members - thank you for all you do!

One way we should be saving money right now - less paper use.
Isabel Castaneda
01:04:40
don't forget, any new incoming freshmen should register for Bridge
Nick STrobel
01:05:59
We’ll probably see a surge in registration in August when we will know what things will be like
