Meeting Notes - April 24, 2012

1) Approval of Joint TTF & CBT Notes March 1, 2012
The notes were approved.

2) Budget Update
Jeanpierre reviewed Bernata's scenarios summary spreadsheet which was updated on 4/17/12. Each college & central services are being asked to bridge the gap between January's budget reduction dollar amount and the updated worst-case scenario figures.

The net deficit for 6/30/12 is now projected to be $12,850,705. The 2011-12 original goal was $10.4M. The 2012-13 revised goal is $17.3M.

De Anza's portion is $7.5M. The college has already achieved $3.5M in reductions from January's budget reduction work but now has a further $3.9M shortfall to bridge.

Enrollment is soft. Spring to Spring figures are down 2% for DAC and 9% for FH. P2 is down 1924 FTES districtwide. This equals approx. $8M. Bernata will incorporate the new P2 figures into an updated spreadsheet. Statewide enrollment has been strong up until recently but has started to soften. Foothill are offering an early summer session schedule which is mainly online. They are hoping to restore some of the lost enrollment.

The major difference between scenario B and scenario B-revised is a higher deficit factor and decreased enrollment.

The updated budget scenarios will go to the PBTs for discussion. The district wants the colleges to work on updating their reduction scenarios immediately. No dollar amount budget reduction targets for the PBTs have been set yet. 

Previous reductions have included: attrition, fund balance, stability funding, reorganization, layoffs.

Latest information shows that changes to financial aid for 12-13 will not have a large impact on DA students but there is concern that these changes will prevent many families from taking advantage of the program.
