Review Agenda – Added – Budget Update & Review of the Advocate Reporting System
Notes from the meeting of October 3rd were reviewed. There were no corrections.
Jeanpierre reviewed the adopted “B” budget presented to the Board on 8/26/13. We are
still operating at a deficit of approximately $5 million. The ending balance of $45
million includes $14 million in unallocated funds available for 13/14 Stability Fund.
We are still trying to recover loss of enrollment. The district has set aside $2 million
for enrollment stimulus/restoration. Of the $16 million in colleges/district carryover,
$5.5 million is for De Anza augmentation. Also mentioned as important to review is
the Analysis of FTES for the last three years.
Jeanpierre also emphasized the college will need to make changes to align with the
implementation of the Student Success and Support Program (SSSP) funding formula that
includes a match of three dollars for every dollar from the state; funding based on
college’s potential total of students to be served and the number of students served.
Has to be fully implemented by 1215.

reporting student incidents on campus electronically; major types are cheating and
disruptive behavior. Reports sent electronically to HEART (Harm evaluation assessment
& reduction team) weekly for review and further action. Clarification made between
Advocate and the SS Incident Report, used for incidents other than students.
Overview of CAS Standards – LeBleu-Burns reviewed how the CAS (Council for Advance
of Standards) Standards Characteristics of Individual Excellence for Professional
Practice in Higher Education (37) are grouped with several different sub standards. Standards
