Status Report

Asked Consultation Council to establish two task forces to examine both quality and curricular issues within the funding context.

Whereas, There currently exists a funding disparity between noncredit and credit funding, as the current rate of apportionment funding for noncredit is approximately 56% of the credit rate and does not provide adequate funding for program elements that are critical to the success of noncredit students, such as full-time faculty, general support costs, office hours, libraries, learning resources centers, and tutors;

Resolved, That the Academic Senate for the California Community Colleges support efforts to remedy the disparity between non-credit and credit funding without taking away from the current level of credit funding.
