Feedback from Betty Glyer-Culver, 8.12.19
Hi Patty, I am only going to be able to attend today’s meeting for maybe the first half hour if at most. There are items on the agenda I am most interested one of them being Dual Enrollment. So I will look forward to reading the meeting minutes on this item. Note that I would be happy to serve on any workgroups related to Dual Enrollment/Advanced Ed or wherever I might provide support from a research lens.
Also I see that Gainful Employment reporting is on the agenda. I am the lead for all Federal Reporting for our district. (lucky me). The item on the agenda you are referring to is specific to GE Disclosure reporting. However it is important for you to know that the federal government has provided the colleges the option for early rescission of the Gainful Employment regulations which includes GE Disclosure reporting. Here is the back ground information on the early rescission rule. I would be more than happy to speak to this but as I indicated I can only attend the meeting for the first half hour, maybe. Los Rios has opted in to the early rescission option and I would imagine most colleges would.
Here is the key piece of information related to the early rescission of Gainful Employment reporting (emphasis is mine):
Institutions that early implement the rescission of the GE rule will not be required to report GE data for the 2018-2019 award year to NSLDS, which will be due October 1, 2019. Additionally, those institutions that early implement will not be required to comply with the current requirements in 34 CFR 668.412 (d) and (e) that require institutions to include the disclosure template, or a link thereto, in their GE program promotional materials and directly distribute the disclosure template to prospective students, which will be required starting on July 1, 2019. Institutions that early implement will no longer be required to post the GE Disclosure Template and may remove the template and any other GE disclosures that are required under 34 CFR 668.412 from their web pages. Finally, an institution that early implements will not be required to comply with the certification requirements for GE programs under 34 CFR 668.414.
Here is the link to the GE Electronic Announcement 122-Early Implementation of the Rescission of the Gainful Employment Rule for your review:
