AS-3009-11/APEP (Rev)

ATTACHMENT TO AS-3009-11/APEP (Rev)

RESOLVED: That the Academic Senate of the California State University (ASCSU) commend the Office of the Chancellor for initiating a process for the implementation of the provisions specified in Section 66205.8 of the California Education Code that call for the development of model curriculum criteria to be used to identify Career Technical Education (CTE) courses that would meet the category “g” requirement for admission of high school graduates to the CSU, and be it further

RESOLVED: That the ASCSU specifically commend:

      • Assistant Vice Chancellor, Student Academic Support, Eric Forbes,
      • Associate Director, Academic Outreach and Enrollment Management Services, Carolina Cardenas,
      • Associate Director for Teacher Education and Public Schools Programs, Zee Cline,
        and
      • Assistant Vice Chancellor for

or their inclusive leadership in facilitating the process which will provide for an increase in the breadth and number of area "g" electives that meet the CTE requirements, especially in the 15 disciplines not offered by the University of California, and be it further

RESOLVED: That the ASCSU recognize and commend the on-going work of the University of California’s Board on Admissions and Relations with Schools (BOARS) and their collaboration with the California State University in the review and approval of CTE courses, providing for significant growth in the number of schools offering CTE courses and the even greater growth in the number of approved CTE courses that provide for rigorous academic study and career technical skills over the last six years.

RATIONALE: Section 66205.8 of the California Code calls for the development of model curriculum criteria to be used to identify CTE courses that would meet the category “g” requirement for admission of high school graduates to the CSU. According to the California Education Code these criteria are to be developed by “CSU faculty, approved by the ASCSU” and then submitted to the Board of Trustees for review and approval by January 1, 2014. While state law requires the CSU to take the lead in establishing these criteria, AS-2933- 10/APEP recommended that the process be developed in consultation with theUniversity of California. Consultation in providing for such a process is well under way, ensuring that the required criteria will be developed and ready for approval by the Board of Trustees on or before the statutory deadline of January 1, 2014.

Approved Unanimously – May 5-6, 2011
