CBT Meeting Canceled May 8, 2012
May Revise May 14, 2012
In anticipation of the release of the May revise, CBT will not be meeting today.
Our financial team will be doing an extensive analysis of what the May revise means to the District and to De Anza College. Once we have gathered and analyzed all the information, Kevin McElroy and the De Anza team will hold a Budget town hall to update the campus on the latest news. We will advise you of the the date of the town hall as soon as it is scheduled.

As you likely know, Jerry Brown is expected to release his revised 2012-13 budget (May Revise) on Monday, May 14. The May Revise will update the 2012-13 spending plan Governor Brown outlined in January – especially in light of lower than projected revenues in the current year. In addition, we expect the State Administration to provide more detail related to the Governor’s ballot measure – revenue and expenditure proposals if the measure passes, and trigger reductions in the event the ballot measure fails.
The League has scheduled two web-based conference calls in coordination with the Chancellor’s Office to explain the May Revise and answer questions. California Community Colleges Chancellor Jack Scott, Vice Chancellor of Fiscal Policy Dan Troy, League President and CEO Scott Lay, and Director of Fiscal Policy Theresa Tena will walk through the May Revise proposal for community colleges and answer questions submitted via CCC Confer.
The online presentation will support an unlimited number of participants and we strongly encourage folks to follow the presentation online. The webinar will last one hour and we anticipate media will also participate online.
Finally, the webinar will be recorded and will be available on the CCC Confer web site within 24 hours.
These webinars will be in addition to the League’s normal e-mail analysis, which will be distributed shortly after the release of the May Revise. Comprehensive budget analysis, will also be available on the League’s Budget Advocacy Action Center at www.ccleague.net. In addition, we encourage folks to follow the Chancellor’s Office twitter account, @cccbudgetnews, and the League’s twitter account, @ccleague.
