A Message From Our Chancellor - 2018-2019 Budget, Community College Funding Formula
On behalf of the West Hills Community College District, I write to convey strong support for enactment, as part of the 2018-2019 budget, the new Student-Centered Funding Formula for the California Community Colleges, which was proposed by the Governor in January and revised in his 2018-2019 May Revision. I ask that this important proposal be included when the budget conference committee takes action on a conference report this year. The Governor’s plan, for the first time in contemporary history of California’s community colleges, recognizes a reality West Hills has endured for nearly 86 years: rural districts serving large populations of disadvantaged students require more resources to help them to the completion finish line.
