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.

FACCC joined the other faculty groups, including members of the Council of Faculty Organizations (CoFO), for our 2020-21 budget lobbying. 

 

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.
