ASFC Student Town Hall - Shared screen with speaker view
Thanks for sharing your experience, Tamara. That sounds scary and hard
Thank you so much!
are you saying that foothill will offer special hybrid classes to,bypass this policy?
That’s a good idea Sam!
we will answer questions during the open forum!
@Sam - Foothill is looking into offering a 1-unit hybrid course to bypass this policy. There would be one face to face session and the rest of the time would be virtual
@Tamara, I am sorry to hear about your sister.
Thank you for that> It is a very hard time for my family and I.
Foothill “crime” report suggest another police officer is not necessary: https://foothill.edu/titleix/clery.html (particularly with remote learning).

Agreed. I'm not even familiar with the idea that a college district needs its own police department.
if we are cutting funds due to civd, there is no reason for two new police offcials especiall if there is noone on campus.
we should consider virtual courses with a single meeting in person once a month. This would meet the requirement for international students to stay while practicing regular social distancing
@Alisabeth, I’m under the impression that only one F2F mtg is required to meet the law. Do you know otherwise?
@Fatima I had heard it was either once a month or once a term. I do not have a source on hand, but I would be grateful for either
@Alisabeth - I’m sure Lark will confirm one way or the other
yes, only 1 F2F mtg is required to meet the hybrid requirement, however, the Professor will make the final determination of the schedule.
28 officers full time and 11 part time
$1.5 million is the police budget?
should be redirected to mental health
parking tickets pay their salaries as well
as do parking permits
I once tried to set up mental health counseling over phone. I think they were under staffed because I never received response
waited for six months until trying another resource
I think they are trained for active shooters b/c there were active shooter workshops on campus during the last national shooting
that is accurate with older cars
parking ticket funds can be redirected to other services.
BREAKING NEWS: https://www.wsj.com/articles/white-house-weighs-scaling-back-rules-on-foreign-students-studying-online-11594746772
A couple of years ago when there was (ostensibly) an individual on campus with a firearm, the warning tweet went out an hour after the incident. When I asked a police officer about this during an active shooter workshop, he told he I was better off to follow the FHPD on Twitter.
I was about to say that
FYI: The Federal Government just rescinded the International Student ruling https://thehill.com/homenews/administration/507293-trump-administration-rescinds-policy-to-strip-visas-from-foreign?fbclid=IwAR1LegUYdilyeeM9csT7h1nBXjLANTDa_N14P7jwsmL1pEQyjoKwIyKoo2Q

Great news for international students! But please don’t forget about our undocumented community. They are still targeted by ICE.
Good point carlos.
We will keep our Foothill Family together forever!!!!!!!!!!!
@Khaliunaa policy for internal student deportation has been changed
The timing on this is insane
happened just now mid meeting
Trump was listening to this conversation, Olivia
Wonderful news. And yes, thank you, Carlos, for helping to keep our focus on our undocumented student population who are still at risk.
@Barbara and Lark, thanks for leading and loving our international students the way you do!!!
