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

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.
