1.0  Purpose

1.1     It is the purpose of this Executive Order to establish policy and procedures for the orderly scheduling of classes and rooms in a manner which results in increased utilization and which will facilitate the assignment/reassignment of classrooms caused by variances in actual enrollments versus estimated enrollment figures.

2.1     For the purpose of this Executive Order, classrooms are defined as rooms used for general instruction such as general purpose classrooms, seminar rooms, and lecture halls.

3.0  General Rules
