Report on Local Investments of Partnership Funds: Expenditures for 1998-99 and 1999-00.
Laurente, ZoAnne; Sheldon, Debra
This Report on Local Investments of Partnership Funds has been created to show how California Community College districts have been using their Partnership for Excellence dollars for the 1998-99 and the 1999-00 fiscal years. Each district's page includes information separated into the six PFE goal areas: (1) Transfer; (2) Degrees and Certificates; (3) Successful Course Completion; (4) Workforce Preparation; (5) Basic Skills; and (6) Other activities which may cover more than one goal. The grand totals from all of the 108 colleges are provided on a statewide summary sheet. The State has appropriated $100 million in 1998-99, $145 million in 1999-00, and $300 million in 2000-01 for the Partnership. Various funding strategies have been employed in response to the perceived stability of the PFE funding. Some colleges have used PFE monies as augmentations to existing core expenditures already targeting the goals; other colleges used the PFE funds as new dollars that can be counted on for sustained programming, including development and implementation on a larger scale. Appendices include Chaptered Legislation on Partnership for Excellence and Survey for Update of Partnership for Excellence "Report of Reports." (JA)
