8. Spring Professional Development Flex Day: Mark your calendars!  The Spring Professional Development Flex Day will be held on Friday, January 9, 2015 on the Ocean Campus.


A committee of representatives from Administration, the Academic Senate, and the Classified Senate has been meeting to discuss the format, schedule and content for this exciting event. This Flex Day will provide a unique opportunity for us to come together to engage in a college-wide robust dialogue about student equity, and discuss how we as individuals (within our programs and departments) and as a district are doing in this arena.  Departments will use some of this time on a student equity activity that will be incorporated into each department’s program review.  To aid in these conversations about student equity, guidance materials will be provided.  Our progress toward meeting these goals is critical to receiving Student Equity funds from the State.    


For more information about student equity at CCSF, here is a link to the Student Equity Report which details institution-wide goals and activities to move the needle towards closing the achievement gap: https://sites.google.com/a/mail.ccsf.edu/ccsf-student-equity-report-2014/draft-report . 


Look out for other Flex Day announcements which will include the link to the Spring Flex Day program booklet. Submitted by Evelyn Tavisora.
