California Community College faculty have stepped up and quickly adapted during the COVID-19 pandemic to transition to remote and online instruction. FACCC is advocating for the following priorities on behalf of our faculty members who are ensuring California's Community Colleges continue to provide high-quality and accessible education during this public health crisis: 

Budget Priorities

  • Protect funding for California Community Colleges while prioritizing access so no student is turned away during an economic recession. 
  • Increase funding for part-time faculty health benefits and compensation during and after the public health crisis. 
  • Remove the performance-based funding element of the Student Centered Funding Formula.
  • Reallocate Calbright funding to increase investment in the CVC/OEI and boost online education funding for existing colleges.

Legislative Priorities

  • AB 2884 (Berman) would expand the use of restricted lottery funds to include funding for students’ basic needs.
  • AB 897 (Medina) would increase the total load a part-time faculty member may work from 67 percent of a full-time load to 80 to 85 percent.
