    Approval of Notes

    The notes from April 17, 2018 were approved with the enrollment change to 18.730

    The team approved adding two items to April 24, 2018 agenda:

    • Current budget and enrollment
    • Classified staff positions

    Current Budget Update

    Espinosa-Pieb informed the committee that the district budget deficit went up. District wide enrollment came in lower than the estimated 1100 figure after the census. As of today, the new FHDA reduction figure is $17.6M which has to be taken to the Board for approval.

    The Board is very concerned about the increasing budget deficit. The district will be presenting some reduction scenarios to the campuses.

    Instruction had a total reduction target of $2.250M, which is 45%. It was broken down as follows: FY17/18 and 18/19 = $1.125M and FY19/20 = $1.125M for a total of $2.250M. (please see, Budget Presentation, p.10)

    However, with the further enrollment decline, the budget deficit for FY19/20 went up and De Anza is now looking at a larger deficit. The share for Instruction would be about 57% which is about $2.18M.

    Overall, the estimated total (not finalized) Instructional reduction is $4.432M due in October, 2018. However, Espinosa-Pieb advised the team to review and complete as much work as possible by June 30, 2018.

    Tier 1 - Instructional reduction for FY17/18 and 18/19 is $1.125M

    The committee recommended elimination of ten vacant faculty positions and possibly (needs further discussion) two vacant classified positions which would bring us to our Tier 1 reduction goal.

    Ranck confirmed two vacant classified positions in her area:

    1. Learning Management System Admin (has been vacant since 2016; served as an internal support which the department no longer needs)
    2. Tutorial Center position (retirement in June, 2018)

    There will not be any layoffs of filled positions for the 2018/19 year. However, vacant positions can be eliminated.

    Tier 2 - IPBT will be reviewing Instructional programs and classified positions.

    Suggestions for the first week of the fall quarter:

    • Have a standard IPBT meeting on Tuesday, September 25th, 2018;
    • Schedule an all-day meeting on Friday, September 28, 2018 to get refreshed on the reduction planning.
    • Nguyen to to contact Senate about the possibility of holding elections for IPBT faculty members earlier (e.g. June) so we have faculty members in place once the Fall quarter begins instead of electing them in the second week of the Fall quarter.

    Espinosa-Pieb requested all members to talk to their constituency groups regarding reduction in the positions, which IPBT should consider.

    Review of discussion from 4/17/18 meeting

    Lisa Markus gave a summary of the programs that have been reviewed at last week’s meeting.

    IPBT engaged in reviewing of the rest of the programs and discussed at length.

    -- A sub-group of IPBT was established to review World Languages programs and report back to IPBT committee next week.

    -- Wait on Basic Skills programs (AB 705 area)
