    • Chow explained that Veronica Avila accompanied her to the recent first Implementation Workshop held at Bakersfield College.  Avila asked a question where the Chancellor’s Office representative Alice Perez confirmed that colleges have local control over implementation, as long as it meets the AB 705 requirements.  Santa Monica VPI recorded Avila’s question and the answer from Alice Perez.
