Nebraska Technical Community Coll. Association, Lincoln.
The six Nebraska Community College Areas are requesting a combined $7.1 million increase in State General Funds for continuation and new/expanded programs for the first year of the fiscal year (FY) 1991-93 biennium, and a $7.9 million increase for the second year. This represents a 46.68% increase in General Funds and a 19.62% increase in the total community college system budget for the biennium. Following an executive summary; a request summary by object, classification, and revenue; and an overview of major community college issues affecting state-aid funding for FY 1991-93, this budget request outlines areas of financial need in the Nebraska community colleges for FY 1991-93. These include: (1) continuing to make faculty and staff salaries and benefits more competitive; (2) funding educational telecommunications; (3) upgrading applied technology faculty and equipment; and (4) implementing new programs necessary for community, regional, and state economic development, including community college/high school cooperation, hazardous material handling, and customized training. Additional funding issues discussed in the report include the property tax lid, college efficiency, the colleges' funding formula, and increased tuition charges. Detailed appendixes provide budget comparison data, revenue comparison data, enrollment data, program site data, a budget process timeline, and a community college legislative history from 1979 to 1990.
