College board to discuss job position upgrade, accreditation

FAIRFIELD — The Solano Community College governing board’s study session Wednesday will not only be short on words but also short on in-person participants.

Board president Sarah Chapman and Trustee A. Marie Young, along with Jowel Laguerre, the college’s superintendent/president, will be teleconferencing from the Sheraton Seattle Hotel in Seattle.

The group is in Washington to give a presentation at the Association of Community College Trustees’ annual conference on crisis management at the college – going from a once-troubled college on the verge of losing accreditation through its recovery period.

Trustee Rosemary Thurston is also out of town and will be teleconferencing from Boston.

The primary agenda item is a proposed new job description upgrading the executive coordinator position in the president’s office to a confidential chief of staff position. The new upgraded position is earmarked to assist the president in day-to-day operations and serve as a liaison between the president and the administration and governance entities.

Among other duties, the chief of staff will fill in for the president with members of the governing board, serve as ombudsman for the president’s office on the campus and will represent the president in the community.

The current position is filled by Judy Spencer and falls within Range 35 of Administrative Leadership Group pay scale, which pays between $54,101.11 and $68,381.08. The upgraded position is within Range 43 of Administrative Leadership Group, which ranges between $73,962.22 and $93,584.31.

The reason for the upgrade is partly because Spencer already fulfills duties in that pay range and also because “there are certain things I’d like for her to be able to do for us,” Laguerre said. He said the change in position will help the college “be more effective.”

The governing board will also hear another update on the follow-up report required by the Accrediting Commission for Community and Junior Colleges. In its ongoing bid to stay off sanctions, the accrediting commission asked the college to address four areas of concern. Copies of the report, and other accreditation information, are also available online at www.solano.edu-Accreditation.

In closed session, the college board will continue negotiations to purchase property on the 1400 and 1500 blocks of Sonata Drive in Vallejo. Price and terms of agreement are under negotiation. Another other piece of property to be discussed in closed session is the former main Vacaville Center, which is across the road from the current new center building. The college leased the property and now is in negotiations to buy.

The third other piece property, not to be discussed Wednesday, is on the northwest corner of Turner and Ascot parkways. It will be designated for general classroom use.

The study session begins at 6:30 p.m. in the administration building, 360 Campus Lane, Suite 201.
