Planning and Budgeting Council

The Planning and Budgeting Council (PBC) receives and reviews recommendations that have been forwarded from the PBIM committees and makes final recommendations to the District Participatory Governance Council. Recommendations include educational and resource priorities, Board Policies and Administrative Procedures, and new initiatives. The PBC will:

  1. Affirm consistency with strategic and educational plans;
  2. Recommend a coordinated, district-wide planning approach;
  3. Recommend a prioritization of plans across subject areas and the four Colleges;
  4. Identify funding approaches to support priorities;
  5. Provide oversight on the implementation of the Strategic Plan.
  6. Track recommendations and determine whether the recommendations are implemented including any modifications, or if the recommendations are not implemented, the reasons for not being implemented;
  7. Ensure accountability in district-wide planning by determining whether the agreed upon steps in the process were followed; and,
  8. Make recommendations to the District Participatory Governance Council and to the Chancellor for alternative uses of unrestricted revenue.
