Agenda #1

Presenter:Ann Wright
Summary of Agenda Item:NOTE: At this time, Ann Wright emailed highlights of RAC meeting to campus community. Online meeting minutes had not yet been established. Rachell Summers has captured those highlights here:

In an effort to keep the college community informed of your shared governance committee actions, we will publish meeting highlights. These highlights will be available electronically and sent to the campus community. This is the first highlights of the \\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\"Resources Allocation Committee\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\" formerly known as the Institutional Action & Resources Allocation Committee.

We reviewed the Harntell Colelge budget, which was presented at the Board meeting the next day (The document can be viewed at www.hartnell.edu/baord). It includes an anticipated mid-year cut of $500,000, and a COLA of 0.68% is added to the base. In the state budget, 2% growth is funded and this increase is currently identified in a contingency fund, to be \\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\"restored to the departments through shared governance processes.\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\" The budget includes an increase of $100.00 per person per month in health insurance costs.

We also reviewed the history of FTE gains and losses over the last several years. We lost $1.8 million from our base apportionment in 2005-06, after declines in FTES over several years. We have three years to restore them and recoup that loss, and to add more to our base. We can increase revenue by $2.3 million if we can sustain 8% growth this year (this will add to gains made in the previous two years).
We discussed possible ways to accomplish this growth which includes: positive-attendance classes, intersession classes, short classes and greater efficiencies in the existing schedule. This must be analyzed and implemented through the shared governance process. The Enrollment Management/Matriculation/Student Policy committee will take the lead on this.
Action(s) required:The next meeting will be Monday, October 20, 2008 at 4:00 p.m. in the Hartnell College Board Room, CAB-112.
