Laura Lee George—Calls meeting to order at 1:10 p.m.
Item 1―Legislative Bill Update, Presented by Judy Delgado, CDE
Item 2―Governor’s May Revision, Presented by Judy Delgado, CDE

Irma Amaro―What happens to out-of-compliance American Indian Education Centers (AIEC) during the competitive application process?

Judy Delgado―The AIECs that meet the guidelines will receive priority and the AIECs that do not meet the guidelines will not receive priority. The AIECs that owe money to the CDE are not out of compliance according to the guidelines. However, we will receive a determination from our Legal Office on the AIECs that owe money back to the CDE.

André Cramblit―How strict and by the guidelines is the CDE going to be?

Judy Delgado―AIEC Directors can write and express their feelings about the AIECs that still owe money to the CDE but they may still receive priority during the competitive application process.

Deborah DeForge―AIECs that signed up as a teleconference site for this meeting―A situation arose where a couple of AIEOC members, whose sites were designated as teleconference sites, were not able to be at their sites (although the sites were open for attendees as required). However, those AIEOC members could have called in to the teleconference number from other locations. Also, participants could have called in and listened to the meeting from alternate locations, as was done during meetings such as the State Board of Education meetings (where anyone can watch a live Web stream of the meeting). AIEOC members asked Judy Delgado to check if this type of call-in is a possibility for our meetings.

Item 3―Public Comment

Laura Lee George—The next AIEOC meeting is July 18, 2012, at the California Department of Education.

The meeting adjourned at 1:30 p.m.
