FINANCING CALIFORNIA'S PUBLIC JUNIOR COLLEGES.
MCINTYRE, CHARLES; AND OTHERS
THE ROLES OF THE STATE AND THE LOCAL DISTRICT IN PROVISION OF OPERATING FUNDS ARE DISCUSSED IN RELATION TO FIVE CRITERIA--(1) EQUALITY OF OPPORTUNITY FOR ALL ELIGIBLE PERSONS TO RECEIVE A JUNIOR COLLEGE EDUCATION, (2) EQUITY OF CONTRIBUTIONS FROM EACH SOURCE, BASED ON ABILITY TO PAY AND BENEFITS RECEIVED, (3) OPTIMUM UTILIZATION OF AVAILABLE RESOURCES, (4) FLEXIBILITY AT THE LOCAL LEVEL WITHIN THE FRAMEWORK OF STATE EDUCATIONAL OBJECTIVES, AND (5) SIMPLICITY WITH LONG RANGE STABILITY. THE AUTHORS RECOMMEND A PLAN FOR SHARING OF COSTS BETWEEN THE STATE AND THE LOCAL DISTRICTS, WITH EACH LEVEL CONTRIBUTING A PREDETERMINED PERCENTAGE OF THE BUDGETED COSTS. ALTERNATIVE PLANS DISCUSSED ARE (1) COMPLETE STATE SUPPORT WITH A PREDETERMINED PROGRAM AMOUNT COMPUTED PER STUDENT OR PER WEEKLY STUDENT CONTACT HOUR, (2) COMPLETE STATE SUPPORT THROUGH A PROCESS OF BUDGET REVIEW, (3) STATE-LOCAL SHARING OF A PREDETERMINED PROGRAM AMOUNT, AND (5) EQUAL SHARING OF PROGRAM COSTS BY THE STATE AND THE LOCAL DISTRICT. CONSIDERATION OF FACILITIES NEEDS LEADS TO A PROPOSAL WITH FEATURES OF (1) ANNUAL PREPARATION AND UPDATING OF LONG RANGE MASTER BUILDING PLANS FOR EACH COLLEGE, (2) STATE APPROVAL OF BUILDING PROJECTS AND PLANS, (3) STATE AND DISTRICT SHARING OF COSTS ACCORDING TO A FORMULA, AND (4) LEVYING OF A DISTRICT TAX TO PROVIDE THE DISTRICT'S SHARE OF THE COSTS OF THE APPROVED PROJECT.
