Implementation of Budget Act Language to Reduce State Apportionments to Community College Districts by $30 Million: A Report to the Legislature in Response to the 1982-83 Budget Act.
California State Postsecondary Education Commission, Sacramento.
This report reviews actions taken by the Board of Governors and the Chancellor's Office of the California Community Colleges to implement the 1982-83 Budget Act's $30 million reduction in state apportionments for the community colleges. First, background material specifies the options provided by the legislature to effect the savings, including cutting funding for non-credit courses; avocational, recreational, and personal development courses; or certain types of adult and community education courses. Next, actions of the Board of Governors and the Chancellor's Office to implement the funding reduction are discussed, including the identification of avocational, recreational, and personal development courses that could be offered as self-supporting community service classes. Then, the report outlines procedures used to calculate reductions based on district reports and estimated apportionment reductions on a district-by-district basis. After the criteria for courses to be deleted are presented, an analysis of the effect of the funding reduction on the community colleges' mission is provided. Finally, findings regarding the implementation of the budget reduction are outlined. Appendices include a report to the legislature on the deletion of selected credit and noncredit courses from the community college curriculum and tentative lists of courses to be deleted. (HB)
