MOMENT OF SILENCE
The Board observed a moment of silence for the passing of Warehouse employee Larry Stout on September 3, 2022. Larry joined the College in 1964. As head of the Warehouse, Larry was responsible for, among other things, arranging for vehicles for campus faculty and staff use when traveling off campus. A big job considering it included arranging transportation for athletic teams. Following retirement, Larry agreed to remain as Chair of the Mt. SAC Relays in 1989, a distinct honor that speaks further to his lifelong commitments to the annual track and field event. A member of the Relays Committee and Chair of the Transportation subcommittee, Larry was instrumental in getting Reynolds Buick to sponsor the event, providing cars for officials and athletes. He retired in 1988.

INFORMATIONAL REPORT – Distance Learning
COVID-19's pandemic hastened the expansion of online learning at all levels of education.
The data show that student success rates for fully online credit courses have varied slightly for all divisions since Fall 2019 when Excused Withdrawal (EW) grades (due to the pandemic) are included in the data, with the Spring 2020 semester being the highest (71%) and Spring 2021 and 2022 being lowest (65%). However, if EW grades are excluded, the first year of the pandemic - Spring/Fall 2020 and Spring 2021 – data show that fully online course success was approximately 20% higher.
Hybrid courses saw much greater variability, ranging from a high of 90% in Spring 2021 to 60% in Fall 2021 for courses when EW data is included, 96% to 62% respectively when excluded.
Overall, most impacted populations experienced a decrease in student success in fully online credit classes during the Spring 2022 semester, with the largest gap occurring in the Latinx population, which saw a 10% decrease in success rates since Spring 2021.
Until Spring 2022, African American students showed an overall increase when compared to Fall 2019 (50%), with the highest rate being 55% in Spring 2020. Barring Spring 2020, when success rates were 86%, Asian American students’ success has been relatively consistent since Fall 2019.
Although there was a slight decrease in retention during Spring 2020 when the College pivoted to remoted instruction, student retention rates for online courses have remained consistent for all DL modalities, even given the increase in the number of courses and sections offered. The overall retention rates in Fall 2019 were 85% for online and 88% for face-to-face courses. During the 2020-2021 year, most of the courses were taught online. The retention rates for online courses for the terms that follow were: Spring 2020, 78%; Fall 2020, 78%; Spring 2021, 76%; Fall 2021, 84%; and Spring 2022, 82%.
