Community College Long-Term Finance Plan. Agenda Item 6.
A set of long-term finance principles dealing with student fees, community services, and interdistrict attendance was presented to the Board of Governors of the California Community Colleges for adoption. It was recommended that the Board: (1) oppose any student tuition charges for credit instruction and for non-credit instruction in specified course areas; (2) support a permissive fee charge for community services, that is, a policy that fees for non-credit instruction could be adjusted for those unable to pay, such as senior citizens; (3) retain and increase base budget revenues for community services and provide public funding for one-half of the marginal cost of future changes in community service classes; and (4) liberalize current interdistrict attendance policies to permit students to attend the college and district of their choice, though district residents would have admission priority. Tentative principles for capital outlay funding are discussed, as are issues relating to compensation of part-time faculty, funding for the State Teachers Retirement System, and the "fifty-percent law" dealing with faculty salaries. No recommendations for action on these issues were made. Four appendices present background data and analyses for student fees, community services, interdistrict attendance, and long-term capital outlay. (DR)
