Welcome back to what will certainly be one of the most exciting years we have experienced!
We have a new state budget allocation model -- the Student-Centered Funding Formula – in which funding comes from “buckets” of money, labeled FTES, Supplemental, and Success (which needs our own dictionary) – tied to AB 705, Guided Pathways, and Student Equity and Achievement Allocation.
We are told that each of those programs requires a change in the way we offer instruction and wrap our programs…or do they?
Of course, there is no bigger change in our world than Janus v. AFSCME. While we will focus more on member-to-member communication, be assured that we will fiercely move forward to achieve our goals! We know that collectively we can accomplish more than any of us could as individuals. Join me as we go ALL IN to do what it takes to reach our goals in organizing, bargaining, politics, and labor and community alliances.
No one backs down. No one backs out. We start today!
“I’m sticking to the union!”
