Community College Funding Alternatives and Strategies.
Hayward, Gerald C.
An analysis of Project Independence--a proposal that would limit the role of the Governor and legislature of California in determining the level of funding of local governments (including community college districts) through specification in the Constitution of the share of various state taxes to such entities--is presented in this report to the Board of Governors of California Community Colleges. First, an overview of Project Independence is presented including a statement of the project's purpose, means of funding, different treatment of funding recipients, and state mandated costs. Next, the project's impact on community colleges is discussed in terms of the implications for governance, funding provisions, and the effect on community college finances. This section analyzes the effects of the proposed project in terms of the stability, sufficiency, predictability, and independence of funding. Appendices to the report provide a statement of the goals and purposes of Project Independence, a position statement, and an outline of the changes that would be made in the California Constitution were the project to be enacted.
