Community College Association (CCA) President Lynette Nyaggah released the following statement on Governor Gavin Newsom’s community colleges budget proposal, which includes a $246 million (7 percent) increase in Proposition 98 funding.
“Governor Newsom has provided a strong community college budget with significant pension cost relief to districts. I am hopeful this means community college districts will no longer use this issue when negotiating improved professional salaries and working conditions with local college faculty. This proposed budget frees up resources to provide for more full-time faculty, better salaries for all faculty, and improved benefits for part-time and adjunct faculty. Ultimately, this will be a positive benefit all our students.”
