Peralta Community College District
Impact of State Budget Reductions
Cumulative reductions in state funding for the Peralta Community College District (with a 2012-13 operating budget of $112 million) caused the following budget reductions in 2008-09, 2009-10, 2010-11, and 2011-12:
• $18.9 million has been cut.
• Full-Time-Equivalent-Students (FTES) has been reduced by 4,378.96 from 22,178.96 FTES to 17,800 FTES.
• 18,110 class sections have been eliminated, affecting more than 20,000 students.
• The District continues to provide local funding for over 1,200 FTES (for which no compensation is received from the state).
• Over 60 faculty, staff, and administrative positions have not been filled after becoming vacant.
If Proposition 30 passes in November, PCCD will receive an increase of $3,798,397million, as follows:
• $3 million will be credited to the District in the “deferral buy-down.”
• $798,397 will be provided to the District for an increase in 175 FTES.
If Proposition 30 does not pass in November, $5.5 million will be cut, bringing the District’s cumulative reduction to $18.9 million. The reduction will be in apportionment revenue via a Workload (Enrollment) Reduction, as follows:
• FTES will be reduced by another 1,200 FTES, reducing the total FTES to 16,708 FTES .
