Whereas, The model of program-based funding is intended to achieve specific goals established by AB 1725;
Whereas, These goals have not been met because inadequate funding from the Legislature and the Governor has placed California community colleges among the lowest per-student funding rate in the nation; and
Whereas, Great disparity exists even within the state in the funding of districts of diverse socio-economic make-up;
Resolved, That the Academic Senate urge the Legislature to fund California community colleges at no less than the national average (currently $6,250 per FTES).
The funding model for the community colleges was amended with SB361.
