Groups Work: Before the groups started working, Espinosa-Pieb reminded them about the upcoming Emergency Budget meeting that is being be held at the Smithwick Theater, Foothill College, on Thursday, May 17, 2012 from 3:30 to 5:00 PM. She urged everyone to attend because of recent devastating budget news from the State.
Espinosa-Pieb also told the members that because of the bad budget news the reduction work needs to be done by June 30, 2012. She explained that the District wants to see the impact that the cuts would have to both campuses.
She asked the members carefully do research and analyze the data; “things that we want to seriously to look at”; she asked members to keep in mind FTES and student demand - what do the students really need?
Groups gathered to discuss the further budget reductions to the Instruction Area.
