By The Numbers

Submitted by on May 30, 2008 – 1:54 pmNo Comment


Some of you like numbers, but if you don’t, then read no further.  This is definitely for the number crunchers. 

On May 28, the SFCC Board of Trustees adopted an operating budget for FY 2009 which runs from July 1, 2008 through June 30, 2009.  These charts compare the orignal budget for the 2007-2008 fiscal year (FY2008) to the original budget for 2008-2009 (FY2009).  As has been noted in other posts, the original FY2008 budget was reduced twice during the year, once following the special legislative session in September and then again in March.

Proposed Original Operating Budget – Expenditure Comparisons




Personnel Expenses




Current Expenses




Capital Expenditures




The headline should be “State Revenues Down One Million Plus!”  At the same time, we expect more students to enroll and pay 6% higher tuition rates.  On the other hand, at SFCC, nearly 80% of students receive some sort of financial assistance.  The greatest burden of paying the higher tuition and fees, and enduring the lower state revenues, falls back on the taxpayers, state and federal.
