Whereas, The Academic Senate for California Community Colleges has previously approved a resolution requesting accountability of budget allocations to individual districts;
Whereas, This accountability has not been implemented;
Whereas, Many local academic senates remain unaware of funds such as staff development, academic senate support, Telecommunications and Technology Infrastructure Program (TTIP), and others; and
Whereas, Monitoring such funding entails considerable time and effort;
Resolved, That the Academic Senate establish a budget task force that would be responsible for initiating an accountability report that is regularly communicated to local senates;
Resolved, That the Academic Senate analyze funding for local academic senates, governance, and other faculty support; monitor distribution of all such funding; and keep local academic senates informed of funds coming to their districts for such purposes; and
Resolved, That the Academic Senate conduct a system and local budget breakout at each plenary session.
Found not feasible.The Academic Senate does not have sufficient resources to maintain such a task force and satisfy its research requirements. Ongoing.Budget training sessions are routinely held at Leadership Institute.
