      identity and informing all programs and planning;
    • “Heart” for underrepresented students;
    • Welcome and support for online students;

     Budget Reductions: Process & Criteria

    On November 16th we will have a presentation from Finance on the proposed budget reductions coming in the next couple of years.  

    Cook created a draft of 12 criteria to be used when considering reductions. This will be a transparent process and a timeline will be established after the presentation. All planning and discussions that are happening currently are for the 2018-19 fiscal year.

    SSPBT will now be reviewing new or open positions. They will then be presented to Senior Staff and College Council.

    Resource Requests

    All requests should come through SSPBT first to formalize the resource allocation process. A Budget Request Form will also be created for this process and the SSPBT Resource Evaluation Rubric is available as well.

    Resource requests include: equipment, staffing, materials, and supplies. Instructional equipment is run through IPBT and they are now currently developing the rubric for this process.

    To see how the state defines instructional equipment, please review the California Community Colleges website for guidelines.
