Budget Forum 8/24/11

Dear Mission Faculty, Staff and Administrators:

This important Budget Forum to be held on Wednesday, August 24 from 1 – 3 in Sorenson Hall (SE2-104).  Please read carefully and print and share with your colleagues who do not have email.  Be sure to plan on attending.

From the President, Dr. Laurel Jones:

Classified Staff, Administration and Students:

As Dianne has noted below, this session will give Mission College the chance to voice its position on what type of new Resource Allocation Model will be em-ployed by the district. It is imperative that the Mission Community understand the recommendations coming from the DC/DBAC to our chancellor so that your input can be directed at the model and the model impact to the district and to Mission College. Please plan to be there. For classified, if you are interested in attending, please let your supervisor know so that an arrangement can be made not to com-promise the needs of the workday but to have representation from each sector that can report back to that group.

This is a key time for Mission College to listen, learn and respond and we need you there as part of our efforts.

From the Academic Senate President, Dianne Dorian


As you know we have been working through difficult budget times in Califor-nia. We have all experienced the challenges and changes our budget realities have created at Mission. You have embraced these while holding onto your commit-ment to student success! This is much appreciated!

As you may know, we are now beginning to plan the 2012-2013 budget. What Re-source Allocation Model we use and how we apply it is very important to the fu-ture of Mission College and our students. Mission wants to embrace a rational framework that recognizes the strengths and differences of West Valley and Mis-sion Colleges and sustains the health of both. Faculty voices are VERY IMPORTANT to this discussion as you are the one’s responsible for delivering the quality educa-tion and services our students expect and deserve. I can think of no other meeting you will have during Flex Days (credit available) that has the potential to affect your teaching and student learning as this one!!
