Program Evaluation and Justification Review. Supplemental Analysis: Community College Revenues and Expenditures. Report 98-07.
Florida State Legislature, Tallahassee. Office of Program Policy Analysis and Government Accountability.
This report provides information on Florida's community college costs by examining changes and patterns in revenues, FTE student counts, and expenditures. A supplement to "Program Evaluation and Justification Review: Florida's Community College System, Report No. 98-06," this document analyzes community college revenue and expenditures from two different perspectives: (1) system-level changes in revenues and spending patterns over time; and (2) revenue and expenditure differences among the 28 colleges. Financial analyses cover a seven-year period, from 1990-91 through 1996-97. In constant dollars, the Florida Community College System's total revenues and spending have grown in the last seven years. State appropriations and student tuition accounts for most of the total revenues, constituting 91% of the total revenues in fiscal year 1996-97. Total revenues exceeded total expenditures slightly because community colleges have some funds that are unallocated. Bar graphs illustrate financial statistics. Appended are expenditure differences per FTE student among community colleges (1996-97), and changes in administrative and instructional expenditures among community colleges (1990-91 to 1996-97). (Contains 14 graphs.) (AS)
