The projected shortfall for the 2014-15 year for De Anza College is $1.3million.

 4)  Student Success & Support Program (SSSP or 3SP)

Cook presented an overview of the SSSP Program. She reviewed in detail the Core SSSP activities; student equity indicators; equity crosswalk (learning communities); and annual State matriculation /SSSP funding allocation to the District.

Funding will be based on direct services to students.

Students’ enrollment priority is based on completion of SSSP activities. Full time students will be given priority registration as long as they have completed the SSSP activities.

Department/disciplines are encouraged to investigate the format of learning communities as a way to connect with students.

No "undecided" selection is available to students under SSSP.

International Students are covered under SSSP.

Counselors are give differing information to students. Request to better educate counselors so correct and accurate information is provided to students.

SSSP will be presented to the DASB later in the month.

Feedback/questions/concerns are welcomed, please email Stacey Cook.

The student equity plan is due to the chancellor’s office January 2015.

5) Quick News

International/non resident student fees are much higher as they more closely reflect the full cost of a unit. These students' fees are not subsidized by the State.

The DASB budget is $1.4M. Quang Nguyen (DASB rep) is very excited to be on the DASB finance team which allocates funds.
