Budget Reduction Summary - SSPBT members reviewed and ranked the Student Services Budget Reduction Proposal Fall 2012 for compilation with the other PBT lists and presentation to the College Council on 10/25. Cook encouraged SSPBT members and any others interested to attend the College Council meeting to hear an expanded discussion of the process as the College Council goes through the other PBT reduction proposals. The total is $2,427,285.00, which meets our target. The Budget Reduction Summary will be posted on the SSPBT web site.

Rating criteria reviewed: 1) Considering how this ranking will affect the ability to serve students and the campus with the remaining staff, 2) Sufficient staff to meet compliance mandates/reports, 3) Previous staff reductions, 4) The global view of services needed for students.

College Council Presentation - After the proposals are presented to College Council, their recommendation will be reviewed by the President and Senior Staff for presentation to the Chancellor's Staff. The list may change before it is presented to the Chancellor's Staff. All the recommendations have been considered very carefully. A global perspective is needed for what is best for all areas. Therefore, some of the recommendations may not be included in the final list presented to the Chancellor Staff and the Board of Trustees. 

Discussion followed about the possible fallout the day after the election if Prop 30 does not pass. Concern expressed about people's reactions and that support should be provided; opportunities to meet and express what the results mean, tools for coping with the situation and how we will work through the next steps. Cook will discuss providing emotional support, particularly to those who will be directly affected with Senior Staff.

"B" Budget Augmentation Requests - postponed until the the October 31st meeting.
