Assessing The Impact: May Revise Statewide & CCD Budget Scenarios - June 1, 2011

 

 

 

Dear Colleagues,,

Today, we released the latest district impact projections under different budget scenarios. As I've written before, the May Revise provided some better news, although it relies on the balanced approach of tax extensions that still requires a two-thirds vote. And, even if the balanced approach is adopted, we are still estimating that 148,000 students will be cut from community colleges across California. In an all-cuts scenario, we now project 241,500 students will lose a spot in community college--better than 400,000, but still an educational and economic travesty.

Below is a glimpse of the statewide projections. Visit http://www.ccleague.net/district-budget-impact/ for more information and to find out the impact on your district and colleges.

Statewide | District Projections

Scenario A: Governor’s Budget Assumptions —
Tax extensions and no Prop. 98 suspension

Budget Cut

Source Amount
State General Fund: -$400,000,000
Increased Student Fees ($36/unit): $110,000,000
Projected Student Fee Revenue Shortfall: -$25,000,000
Net Reduction: -$315,000,000

Impact

Lost FTES/Workload Reduction: 70,400 FTES
Lost headcount students: 148,000 students
Lost course sections: 23,000 courses
Lost course “slots”: 700,000 course slots

Scenario B: All-cuts budget, including a suspension of Proposition 98.

Budget Cut

Source Amount
State General Fund: -$600,000,000
(“fair share,” net of new Prop. 98)
Increased Student Fees ($36/unit): $110,000,000
Projected Student Fee Revenue Shortfall: -$25,000,000
Net Reduction: -$515,000,000

Impact

Lost FTES/Workload Reduction: 115,000 FTES
Lost headcount students: 241,500 students
Lost course sections: 38,000 courses

Let's keep up the fight to ensure that the unfortunate, but better, Scenario A is made possible by a balanced budget approach. A chance to go to college for nearly 100,000 students is at stake.

Sincerely,
