Phil Moss reported on the proposed Distance Learning Guidelines. The guidelines went to the Committee on Instruction last spring. There was concern about the guidelines expressed by the COI. After discussion by the OCALD Executive Board it has been decided to send the guidelines back to committee to examine the intent and goals of the document and to determine a possible different strategy for the proposal. Since there were dissenting opinions from OCALD membership on the first draft of these guidelines, Marty Thompson suggested the chair appoint some members to the committee that were not in favor of the original document. Jon Sparks and Carol Barry are currently the only members of the Expanded Instructional Support Committee. Additional members are needed.

Freeman announced that planning is underway for the November meeting to be presented via teleconference. Details will be forthcoming.
