Developmental Plan Responsibilities and Duties:  Dolores distributed a list of duties and responsibilities for updating the developmental plan.

CCE/CCA Coordinators / Assistant Department Chairs:  Because of the new guidelines for release time, it is possible that some faculty members may not be able to continue as CCE/CCA coordinators.  No one is allowed to have double assignments.  Dolores will monitor the situation and advise faculty if they are affected.

Issue:  How the Developmental Communications Department wants the advisors / counselors to handle developmental credits when students transfer to ACC. (This issue needs task force approval due to revisions).  The state TASP rules say it is up to the institutions to decide.  The Assessment and Advising Committee is asking for guidance from our group.
