RECOMMENDATION NO. 31             RESOLUTION IN SUPPORT OF PROPOSITION 26

 

It is recommended that the Board of Trustees adopt the following resolution in support of Proposition 26 on the March 7, 2000 ballot.

 

WHEREAS, the primary mission of California’s community colleges is to offer academic and vocational education at the lower division level for both younger and older students, including those persons returning to school; and

 

WHEREAS, California’s community colleges play a critical role in the state’s economic growth and global competitiveness through education, training, and services that contribute to continuous work force improvement; and

 

WHEREAS, undergraduates will comprise 95.2% of enrollment demand in higher education growth through 2010 and 74% of that demand will occur in California’s community colleges; and

 

WHEREAS, the capital outlay demands of the state’s 106 community colleges in 72 districts far exceeds the available state resources to address them; and

 

WHEREAS, a tidal wave of more than 490,000 new students will enter the community college system by the year 2010, a 32% increase over current enrollments; and

 

WHEREAS, over half of the buildings on our community college campuses are over 30 years old; and

 

WHEREAS, the California Postsecondary Education Commission estimates that $232 million per year is needed to maintain the existing community college campuses through 2010-11; and

 

WHEREAS, the California Postsecondary Education Commission estimates that $294 million per year is needed for the construction of new buildings and campuses through 2010-11; and

 

WHEREAS, approval of local school bonds by a majority of the voters would give communities greater flexibility in funding their facility needs, thus decreasing their reliance on scarce state bond funds;

 

THEREFORE, BE IT RESOLVED that the Santa Monica Community College District supports the passage of Proposition 26 on the March 7, 2000 ballot because it is a necessary and fair initiative.
