9.06 F11 Limits on Leveled Courses

Brian Sos, Santa Ana College

Resolved, That the Academic Senate for California Community Colleges recommend limiting the leveling of courses to no more than four levels.

 

Visual and Performing Arts

·         Continue repeatability for ensemble performance courses in music, theater and dance. Continue repeatability for ensemble performance and applied courses in music, and ensemble performance courses in theater and dance. Ensemble courses allowing repeatability will not be broken into separate levels.  Leveled courses will not be eligible for repeatability.

·         Limit students to repeating a specific performance course a maximum of 3 times and to a total of 16 units of performance courses total per college.

·         Address community or extended participation needs through non-credit, audit, and community service classes by requesting appropriate changes to Ed Code.

·         Eliminate repeatability for all other visual and performing classes, including all classes in studio art and all non-performance classes in music, theater, and dance.  Purposes currently served by repeatability in these areas can be accomplished through existing curricular options. 

 

Career and Technical Education

·         Eliminate repeatability for CTE classes.  Purposes currently served by repeatability in this area can be accomplished through existing curricular options.  Allow students to petition to repeat courses or use other existing curricular structures for purposes of fulfilling licensure requirements.

·         Student need for retraining of job skills can be accommodated through lapse of time policies.


Physical Education

·         Separate intercollegiate athletics from PE as much as possible.  Use the separate TOP codes for the courses aimed at dance, PE, health, and athletics.  Disciplines can continue to exist in any local division/department structure even when the courses are correctly coded according to the type of course that is offered.

·         Eliminate repeatability for PE classes, including non-performance dance courses.  Purposes currently served by repeatability in this area can be accomplished through existing curricular options.  Performance courses in dance would be repeatable only if they are listed under the TOP code for dance and would be subject to the repeatability limitations for performance ensemble courses.

·         Limit students to a total of 8 PE courses per college.

·         Address community participation needs through non-credit, audit, and community service classes by requesting appropriate changes to Ed Code.

 

9.03 F11 Add a Kinesiology Taxonomy of Programs (TOP) Code to the Curriculum Inventory

Kim Harrell, Folsom Lake College, Area A

Resolved, That the ASCCC work with the System Advisory Committee on Curriculum of the Chancellor’s Office to develop a TOP code for Kinesiology to identify lecture courses in degree and certificate programs in the discipline of Kinesiology that will not be counted against the proposed physical education eight-course limit.

 

Intercollegiate Athletics

·         Allow repeatability for in-season intercollegiate athletic courses in accordance with COA and NCAA eligibility requirements.

·         Allow sport-specific off-season classes to be repeated twice subject to COA and NCAA eligibility requirements.

 

9.04 F11 Change to Title 5 §58162 “175 Hour Rule” for Student-Athletes

Kathy O’Connor, Santa Barbara City College

Resolved, That the ASCCC recommend amending Title 5 §58162 (b) to increase the current 175-hour limit to 350 hours of attendance for each enrolled student in each fiscal year for each sport in which the student participates; and

Resolved, That the Academic Senate for California Community Colleges recommend that all intercollegiate sports conditioning and skills development courses be coded using the TOP code of 0835.50.

 

Adaptive PE

·         Only courses coded as adaptive PE courses may be repeatable.  No limitation will be placed on repeatability for adaptive PE.  As students transition out of adaptive PE courses and still need more help with increasing physical abilities, students will be able take regular PE courses.
