Oregon Community Colleges Respond to Property Tax Rollbacks.
Tollefson, Terrence A.
This document contains an historical overview of the Oregon community college system, including its overall mission and student enrollment information for the 1989-94 academic years. The paper describes how Oregon community colleges enjoyed strong state and local tax support until the beginning of a recession in the early 1980's. Declines in the state's share of funding began to occur, followed by the enactment of two constitutional amendments--Measure 5 in 1990, and Measure 47 in 1996. Measure 5 is summarized, and its negative financial effects are outlined. The effects of Measure 47 also are described, as are possible forms of relief for education. Oregon community college governance and coordination are discussed, with reference to the Office of Community College Services Administrative Agency, the State Board of Education, and local boards specific to each college. College ranking information is provided, as well as a financial support summary for the 1976-93 fiscal years by local and state resources. State appropriations are listed by fiscal year. A higher education fact file is included. (Contains 22 references) (AS)
