New AB 705 Guidance and Math, Part 1 (2pm) The College has received guidance from the State Chancellor's Office that beginning in Fall 2022, no below-transfer level math courses may be offered (with a few exceptions). To help the Council understand what’s going on, representatives from the math department will provide a brief reminder of what AB 705 is, the rationale behind it, and how it has been implemented in the Math department over the last few years. Then, they will explain what this recent guidance says and what it means for ARC Math classes. Then, there will be time for questions & discussion. Frank Kobayashi, Adam Windham, Sharon Gott, Michelle Brock, Phil Smith Math Chairs Michelle Brock and Phil Smith outlined the interpretation of the memo from the State Chancellor's Office that stops the offerings of pre-transfer math classes starting in Fall 2022; this may represent around 40% of math classes at ARC. All departments may be affected as many require these prerequisite math classes for students to be able to move forward in their major. Enrollment has decreased over the past 3 years, and it will continue to decrease due to the unintended consequences of AB705.
