Meeting Notes - January 30, 2018
Approval of Notes from November 28, 2017
The notes were approved.
Cheu shared that the latest news on the Governor's 18/19 Budget was posted to the website for review. In the final state budget of his tenure, the Governor sent a clear message to colleges that he expects significant changes in both the delivery and the state’s financial support of education with increased attention to student outcomes. The 2018-19 budget acknowledges the need to prepare Californians for economic instability and uncertainty through timely access to meaningful degrees and credentials.
Among other proposals, Governor Brown makes two significant and notable expenditures
in the 2018-19 budget: 1) a new fully online community college targeting working Californians
with no degree or credential, and 2) a new outcomes-focused funding formula. 50% based
on full-time equivalent student enrollment; 25% based on students receiving California
College Promise Grants and Pell Grants; 25% based on short and long-term student success
metrics (degrees, certificates, awards, and ADTs)
A new funding formula could mean additional ongoing funds but what it will take to meet the new funding model is largely unknown as there is very little detail on how the Governor’s proposal will be implemented. Cheu highlighted that, therefore, these numbers are in fluctuation as there are many factors that are yet to be determined at the State level. This uncertainly makes forecasting very problematic
California Community College fully online community college is not tied to the OEI grant. The Chancellor’s Office stated that it would not take away students from traditional community colleges as they are targeting students who work full-time and have family obligations. Most Community College representatives at the budget workshop did not agree with this premise.
Scheduled maintenance/Instructional Equipment funding is historically where money is taken from when other funding projects take precedent.
Cheu summarized the De Anza second quarter B budget expenditures (as at Dec. 31, 2017).
In Chow's absence she supplied the following information:
