In recent years, the Yuba Community College District (YCCD) has been experiencing a downward trend in student enrollment, and this trend has been exacerbated by the COVID-19 pandemic. In recognition of the seriousness of this trend and its impact on district finances, the YCCD Board’s Finance Committee requested that the Fiscal Crisis and Management Assistance Team (FCMAT) conduct a study to analyze the District’s cost structure and assess its current and future fiscal condition. FCMAT presented its report to the YCCD Board in October 2022.
As follow-up to the report, the Chancellor directed the colleges and District Services to gather input from their constituency groups and develop recommendations to address the challenges identified by the FCMAT fiscal analysis. He further directed that a District Consultation and Coordination Council (DC3) working group be formed to analyze, synthesize, and prioritize recommendations from the colleges and District Services reports. The group also identified additional recommendations. The following Purpose Statement was developed to guide the work of the DC3 FCMAT Working Group:
To develop a report for the Chancellor that identifies specific strategies for resource reallocation to address ongoing structural deficits to achieve a sustainable total cost of operations that allow YCCD to serve our students in an equitable way and leads to sustainable high-quality operations.
