Approval of Notes
Cheu presented the 2017/18 Budget Reduction Presentation that included an overview of the District and De Anza College financial situation.
The ongoing decline in enrollment has impacted general fund revenue leading to the present $10M structural deficit. De Anza’s basic “B” budget is $1.8M and the College’s cut is $5M. This means the “B” budget is not sufficient to cover the College’s portion of the reductions.
Cheu summarized the proposed budget reduction percentage targets for each VP area and the proposed budget reduction timeline plan.
The reduction number to Instruction is a $2.2M target which will be implemented over a three-year period. IPBT has to identify permanent ongoing reductions and submit to Campus Budget office by April 15, 2018.
In order to avoid layoffs in FY17/18 the college is using ending fund balance to cover the FY17/18 $1M - pending identification and implementation of permanent reduction.
Cheu clarified the amount of savings the district will give us for proposed eliminations.
Classified and managers: De Anza would get full salary & benefits amount based on actual costs of the position at time of layoff.
Faculty: De Anza would get credit for full salary & benefits amount based on actual costs of the position at time of layoff approximately $100K, but a position must be permanently off the Faculty Hiring List and not backfill by p/t faculty.
District is looking into retirement incentives but this is a negotiated item.
Foothill have a larger B budget so are able to identify savings from B. Foothill also have a similar dollar amount of carryforward as De Anza but do not have the same level of ongoing expenses.
Strong Workforce Updates
Bdzil shared and gave an overview of the revised De Anza Strong Workforce Program 2017-2018 - Regional/Local Share documents.
Working collaboratively with deans and departments she was able to identify and redirect the eligible requests over to SWP 2017-18 Regional Share and Perkins 2017-18.
The team carefully reviewed SWP request for re-allocation and mutually approved the requested adjustment.
Ranck asked Bdzil to communicate the outcome with the departments, so they can start spending.
Good of the Order –
Ranck notified the team that she and James Nguyen will meet to work on the planning for the next week meeting. They would send some “homework” to the team in order to be prepared for the discussion. Ranck advised the team to start prioritizing the vacant faculty positions.
The team discussed and agreed to have an additional meeting on April 10, 2018, at 3:00 to 5:00 PM. The meeting invite will be sent shortly.
