1979-80 Budget Process. Phase I: Educational Programs. Procedures Manual.
Los Angeles Community Coll. District, CA. Div. of Educational Planning and Development.
As Proposition 13 necessitated more drastic curtailment of expenditures than had been anticipated when the modified zero-based operational plan for 1978-79 was devised, the budget development procedure was revised for 1979-80. The process is divided into three phases: educational programs, district fiscal plan, and the operational plan. This procedures manual describes the relationship between the phases and contains specific instructions for completing the educational programs phase which involves instructional schedule of classes, instructional support, and student services. Decisions concerning these programs are to be based on three alternative levels of operation: (1) level I--programs based upon optimum class size standards applied to fall 1978 enrollment and curriculum guidelines which give priority to required and developmental courses; (2) level II--programs based upon standards applied to revised enrollments and increased estimates for fall 1979 with curriculum guidelines permitting additional sections of all courses; (3) level III--further revision for increased program breadth and schedule balance. Descriptions of course categories, enrollment standards, program level standards, worksheet forms, and instructions for their use are included. (MB)
