I am hearing from some colleagues that some people are getting booted out of zoom
and mute everyone in the room
thank you :-)
Jorge, you are unmuted
can host mute all?
you can force mute so no one can unmute without your permission
including new participants
Thanks everyone...we are all still learning....
If you are calling in from a mobile phone, please be aware that your camera is on.

Thank you Adam. I hope that all is well.
Welcome David - thanks for jumping in to a big role at such a trying time.
TLC has been awesome. Really taken the opportunity to show why they shine all the time.
Francine Van Meter
Thank you, Cabrillo!! [hugs to you]
Thank you TLC and Matt too
Thank you Cristina Barragan for pulling that graduation program together and making sure we stay on schedule. Thank you Karen Reyes for the heroic work of finding money for me to spend on the feeding students! This is an amazing team of Cabrillo-ites!
Thank you Bradley and Matt!
Gabriela's message is so touching . . .
What are initial thoughts on managing class enrollment size and social distancing if teaching in person?
Thank you so much Bradley and Matt.
I echo the deep gratitude as Matt's shared. Everyone in every aspect of Cabrillo's organization is doing such incredible response work and I am just in awe of how much care and excellence goes on. Thank you all for your care for students and for our whole community and college.
Perfect thank you! I and others will look at the board docs
So much gratitude for Matt and Bradley
We have heard in high school articulations meetings that K12 parents are talking about forgoing 4-year
Bradley can you explain what you meant by “Future SCFF/Calbright Post COVID-19”?
Yes. Lots of calls and emails from university students asking if we are still accepting applications....YES!
Echo Kristin Wilson’s question. Those of us who would be willing to teach in person but will require specific protections - eg masks, distance, sanitizer etc.
I think we should all read that article. It shows the great value of cc education.
Please share article link if possible.
Thank you to Gale Stevens, Therese Doherty, Grace Garcia, Rich Torres, Rudy Luna, and pooz Creek for all of your support to select, order, receive and distribute IT equipment to students, faculty and staff!
Considering the particular budget lines around “benefits,” is Cabrillo reconsidering hiring FT positions? In other words, is Cabrillo considering filling those classes with more adjuncts rather than filling the potential FT positions.
Will you take questions "live"?
or should we type them in here?
I think many of our classified staff may be wondering the same thing.. if the College continues to stay closed past the end of May, will we continue to be paid?
you are welcome Adam. Good to "see" you!
Hi Leslie, I recommend using the chat box. It's easier to scroll up and make sure we don't miss anyone.
Can I just say, how frustrating that it takes a global pandemic and world-wide economic down spiral for the masses to recognize the value in students completing their General Ed at the community college level before spending the money on a 4-year university...!
Is there a plan to balance a potential influx of the students who had planned to go to a four-year with potential cuts to TU's?
This has likely been looked at, but are you looking at workers Comp liability? Savings on day to to day operational costs since campus has been closed?
I have another Zoom, but thanks for this meetig
Great to see you Cheryl :-)
You, too, Camille!
Oh, you mean like carpal tunnel?
Will the retirement incentive be available for Adjunct faculty?
With summer classes online and the uncertainty of in person classes for fall semester will the district be looking at costs savings around the money the district pays the County for Sheriff coverage + security services ?
For the sake of students’ budgets, please consider removing the mandatory bus pass.
I would say that Sheriff coverage is very important right now BECAUSE the campus is not populated. It's important to protect our assets....
Regarding worker’s comp, there will unlikely be significant savings known by the first 1/2 of FY20/21 because 1) there are continued risks, both for essential workers on campus, and for remote workers, and 2) our insurance pool self-insures up to the first $1million, but after that we are in another statewide pool and then we have reinsurers; all of those entities will have to agree about loss projections/required premiums and adjustments.
Student Bus pass is NOT being charged for summer.
If known, what is the COVID-19 impact to our contract with WM Café for cafeteria services?
Absolutely agree Suzanne. I was one of the medical assisting staff that was on campus the other day and I was shocked at how many people were there riding their bikes, walking their dogs, recreating, etc.
All of our vendor partners are taking serious hits: WM Cafe, KJ’s Coffee/Drip Coffee, Bookstore (vastly reduce sales even with online ordering) and on-campus vending. WM Cafe, specifically, is planning to hold on until we reopen to live classes in a robust way.
We also allow students to sit in their cars in the lots to access Internet AND we allow them to sit at tables alone as long as social distancing is happening. Lots of our students don't have Internet.
I am curious if there's been an uptick of students specifically seeking housing assistance through our HEAP funded housing assistance program.
Have to run-thanks to everyone for the amazing support so we can continue to serve students.
I went to the Google invitation at the start of this meaning. Wrong room. did I miss any update re fall semester format?
Yes Adam, we have been getting a lot of referrals and emails from students who have lost their job due to pandemic
Sorry Peggy... that was my fault I created that meeting as a personal reminder and accidentally did a "reply all"
Thanks for the clarification that students can and will be coming to campus to take advantage of our Wi-Fi.
Yes. Lots of food needs...
Matt is it your thinking that the in person classes (as in the example you gave) would mostly apply to labs, rather than lecture classes. I’m particularly concerned about the students I teach who have significant impediments to on line access and limited technology skills.
Must leave the meeting. BIG THANKS to all of you for your efforts on behalf o students and the Cabrillo community.
Thanks for that (unfortunate) update. And thanks for all you are doing to help displaced and in-need students.
We were able to get housing voucher to 3 students last week and are working on helping 2 students this week for housing stabilization.
Earlier this year we were planning to host intermediate ESL courses in Live Oak this summer. Are we still planning to continue this work? Thanks
Staff, faculty, and students have responded with tremendous grace, creativity, and amazing effort to get through this time of Covid-19. I’m so grateful.
people are hurting deeply, calls to suicide hotlines have increased substantially Remember to check in with one another and let each other know we are here for each other
SHS is managing over 20 suicidal students
all summer esl had to moved online unfortunately
There is a tremendous effort going on right now towards food security for our students. Hundreds of students are receiving emergency food gift cards of approx. $70 each.
Thank you to Diane and SHS for all of your great work, for your compassion and care. Thank you, thank you.
Is there a date when an at-large decision will be made in reference to teaching online in the fall? Or is that a department-by-department case?
Cynthia Sue FitzGerald
The newly announced Emergency Feeding Program, which would involve feeding seniors in the county who are not receiving Cal Fresh or Food Stamps via area restaurants, is a recent hot discussion with our area non-profits serving seniors, and has several organizational challenges that we're staying appraised of in order to help our senior students.
Sue and Robin - thanks for these updates and thank you so much for all you are doing to support students.
Adjunct faculty should be aware that, due to CARES Act money, unemployment will pay an additional $600 per week (on top of the $450 maximum weekly benefit) through July. This is perhaps the only silver lining in the dark clouds gathering over adjunct faculty.
Many campuses have decided to go online for the fall - will these examples be taken into consideration for the final decision?
Having dealt with other Community Colleges during this time I would like to personally note that Cabrillo is far and away treating its classified staff better than any of the other colleges…thank you from Bradley Booth, CCEU Attorney
Do you see campus being open for staff/faculty over summer if SIP is eased to gatherings of 10 people?
CCFT will be hosting a part-time unemployment workshop on Saturday, May 23rd at 10 a.m.
Also, please note that Second Harvest Food Bank is doing drive-up food distributions every Friday from 9am-1pm: WATSONVILLE: Santa Cruz County Fairgrounds: May 1, May 15, May 22SANTA CRUZ: Santa Cruz Beach Boardwalk: May 8, May 29. www.thefoodbank.org for more information. Apparently the lines are not long (half hour max) and they have enough food for those who need it.
Horticulture plant sale due to be online store may 9 Also farmer market and Eatlocal.farm
You’re most welcome - thank you Matt and Brad for this call, as well as everyone at Cabrillo for all of your incredible work!
With the governors phase 2 of return including child care and schools is there a chance summer camps could go on with modifications?
Thank you for the info!
I may be biased....but, Cabrillo could not be in better hands during this difficult time, or anytime for that matter. Thank you Matt for your leadership. Thank you to All faculty, ALL staff, ALL administrators, ALL managers, ALL students, and ALL trustees! We are ALL in this together!
Ronette - You are so awesome! Thank you for all that you are doing
Summer CyberCamps for 8-12 grade has already been redesigned to be fully online for all of the Bay Area CCC
Actually a revenue stream would be opening a DE Academy to grammar and high school teachers. Something to consider as there is a great need.
I polled all statewide purchasing and contracting officers and asked them about if their fall semester plans were made as to if their colleges have decided to announce online only, or were still in a “wait and see mode.”. Out of 21 responses, only 3 colleges had already decided to go online.
For staff who may be cut or reduced because their job is very face-to-face, will there be opportunity for picking up other work at Cabrillo til job is restored?
Tobin, your background says it all.....
My virtual virus force field!
I just want to say how grateful I am to all of our employees for the incredible work and commitment to our mission and students, and to each other. The way you all have mobilized and adapted is so impressive. I love my job at Cabrillo and am so grateful to be part of this amazing group of people. Please remember Human Resources is here for you, so please reach out if you need help with anything.
Thanks for the https://eatlocal.farm/ link, Peter. I'll look into signing up.
Thanks to you too, Ronnette!
Thank you for providing this forum, Matt and Bradley. I appreciate the solid leadership.
I so appreciate the leadership and compassion at Cabrillo. Thank you to all faculty and staff for going above and beyond!
Our students have been exceptional during this time of transition to online learning. I am in awe of what they have accomplished!
Governors Press Conference where he had PHD yestrerday provided a lot of information about rolling out education/child care priority for stage 2
Thanks to all!
Thanks, Matt, and everyone who has been sharing this important information recently!
Thank you Matt & Brad & Sue & Kathie & all the faculty leaders for all the extra you’re doing now!
