††††† J. Streator indicated his willingness to serve again as SRC Chair and was elected unanimously.


3.      Discussion of P/F proposal.


††††† Some discussion was held regarding the proposed change in the allowable time during which students could elect to change the grade basis of a course from Letter Grade to P/F and vice-versa.† (This proposal was presented to the Academic Senate on May 1, 2006, which remanded it back to the SRC for further deliberation.)† It was decided to consider explore whether a technical solution to the potential student course scheduling problems could be achieved via appropriate use of the new software system (Degree Works) that is planned for implementation by the Registrarís office.†† It was decided to consult with Reta Pikowsky (Registrar) and GTAAN to determine the time frame for the software implementation and to assess its capabilities.
