Calendar Town Halls

by dara, FA Vice President

As you have heard, the Calendar Task Force has spent the semester researching, discussing, and developing academic calendar models.


Task force Chair and Academic Senate President-Elect curry mitchell has captained this group with input from students, full and part-time faculty, credit/non-credit faculty, classified employees, and administrators. Along with our roles as a non-credit and a credit instructor, Ruth Gay and I have worked on the task force to provide input from the FA lens, and it’s been very good and very rewarding work. There are a couple of important items for you to know. The first is there will be two Calendar Task Force Town Hall meetings in Zoom. They are thematically-based, and here’s the info:

MiraCosta's Academic Calendar, Townhall: Let's Talk about Term Length, Finals Week, and FLEX

When: Wednesday, April 3rd from 1:30-3:00pm


MiraCosta's Academic Calendar, Townhall: Let's Talk about Start/Ends Dates, Breaks, and Intersessions 

When: Thursday, April 11th from 1:30-3:00pm


Each townhall will be recorded and posted to our website along with a form for providing feedback. Your feedback (during and after) will help the Taskforce finalize our recommendation of a new academic calendar by the end of this semester (This paragraph is taken, wholly, from curry’s email).


Secondly, before you attend either or both town halls, please review this site. curry has built a comprehensive, well-organized site, which provides excellent information and answers to many, many questions. One giant benefit to the Task Force’s composition is that we have expertise, from multiple perspectives, in the room. That benefit is demonstrated through the thorough FAQs page.

Of course, whichever model is ultimately forwarded, any working conditions changes or impacts the calendar may bring will be negotiated by the Faculty Assembly. It’s very important for you to read and understand the and attend the town hall meetings so you are informed and can have your voice heard.

I hope to see you at the town hall meetings!
