(a) The California Community Colleges Agriculture and Natural Resources Advisory Committee shall identify and develop quality program criteria that may be used to uniformly evaluate the effectiveness of the agricultural education programs in community colleges throughout California. These criteria shall be developed in consultation with instructors, administrators, students, industry representatives, and other interested parties, and shall build upon the local program evaluation document previously developed by the advisory committee. These criteria shall be submitted, no later than June 30, 2007, in a written report to the Chancellor of the California Community Colleges and the Legislature.
(b) The California Community Colleges Agriculture and Natural Resources Advisory Committee shall perform all of the activities specified in subdivision (a) within the allotment of funding provided to the advisory committee under the federal Carl D. Perkins Vocational and Technical Education Act (VTEA). Under no circumstances shall these activities result in a state operations request for General Fund support or displace any other VTEA-funded state operations activities within the office of the Chancellor of the California Community Colleges.
