AS-2777-06/AA/TEKR (Rev) - November 9, 2006


RESOLVED: That the Academic Senate of the California State University (CSU) urge the Chancellor’s Office, in conjunction with the Academic Senate CSU, to move quickly to establish a systemwide faculty task force to address issues raised by SB 1543 (Alarcon) related to Career Technical Education (CTE), including the preparation of model curriculum standards to guide the approval of CTE courses as a-g general elective courses for purposes of admission to the CSU.

RATIONALE: SB 1543 (Alarcon) provides that if the CSU has not adopted, by July 1, 2008, model uniform academic standards for CTE courses that will satisfy the completion of a general education course requirement for the purpose of admission, the CSU Board of Trustees shall recognize the completion of all high school CTE courses that meet the model curriculum standards established in current law, as satisfying the completion of a general education requirement for the purpose of admission.
