Update Following the January 8, 2019 Board of Trustees Meeting
Here's a brief summary of the January 8, 2019 regular meeting of the Board of Trustees.
Update Following the January 19, 2019 Board of Trustees Workshop
I want to share a brief summary of the the Board's January 19, 2019 workshop.
I want to share the full Fiscal Crises and Management Assistant Team's report with all of my colleagues in the District. When
you read the full report, you’ll see that FCMAT accomplished what we asked them
to do. I want to thank Jim Austin, our FCMAT consultant, for his work. He did a great job analyzing the District and developing concrete recommendations for improvement. Here's a brief summary of some of the findings.
that enrollment decreases are contributing to our
fiscal problem and although we’ve implemented several initiatives to increase
FTES we don’t have a comprehensive plan to address the decline in FTES. They wrote that our fund balance is unstable because of ongoing revenues and/or expenditure
reductions and we will not able to maintain our reserves for economic
uncertainty based on current revenue and expenditure trends. They found that although FTES and enrollment
projections appear reasonable based on the assumptions used; the relationship
between budgeted and actual revenue, expenses and ending balance numbers is not
easily assessed or transparent. FCMAT
suggested that we focus our financial resources on supporting our
highest priority programs and offer programs that meet the needs of the community.
FCMAT recommended that we take several actions:
1. FCMAT's findings and recommendations provide clear actions that, if accomplished, will improve our fiscal condition and increase our operational efficiencies. I will work with the Cabinet, Academic Senate, and the constituent group leadership to address the recommendations. The report has been posted on the President’s website.
I encourage you to read it.
