Mt. San Jacinto Community College District
Budget Committee Meeting
May 21, 2002
The meeting began at 3:32 p.m., Dewey Heinsma (co-chair), Carol Montez, Laurel
Jones, Dennis Hogan, Ron Bowman, Greg Estrada, Karen Watts, John Norman, Darrell
Taylor and guest speakers, Roger Schultz and Jan Noble. Absent were Becky Elam
(co-chair), Don Robinson, Gale Ward and ASB representative, Mayda Rivera.
- On motion by Dewey Heinsma and seconded by Gail Jensen, the minutes for
April 16, 2002 were approved.
- It was decided that future meetings (after June 18) would be held on the
fourth Monday of each month at 3:00 p.m. Karen Watts will find a location.
It was requested that meetings be linked with Menifee campus.
- Carol Montez reported on status for District's 50% Law. According to calculations
as of May 3, 2002, the District is at 48.84% compliance and will most likely
meet the requirement for FY 2002; the District must be in compliance or will
not receive full funding. Next year, the District is facing serious difficulties
due to State budget cuts and significant cost increases. COLA is projected
at 2.00% General Fund and 1.66% for categorical programs. The Cal Works Program,
which had been proposed as discontinued, is back on the table; however, a
1:1 District match will be a new requirement. The budget committee will work
to make recommendations for meeting next year's 50% Law requirements.
- Roger Schultz, Vice President of Student Services and Jan Noble, Associate
Dean of Allied Health gave a report on the Master Plan goal to establish Student
Health Services on both campuses.
- Other campuses were visited or contacted
- A survey was distributed to students and a 43% return indicated that
students, especially those on the San Jacinto Campus, want health services
available. Many students cannot afford health insurance.
- Services that students were most interested in having are: flu shots,
triage, basic care, antibiotics, over-the-counter medicines, stress management,
sex education information and HIV information.
- ASB is very supportive and they would like to see stress management
information and one-on-one on-campus counseling available
- Hours and staffing
- Insurance-District liability insurance will increase by approximately
$36,000 per year.
- Start-up costs and operating costs-Students could be charged $12 (the
suggested amount) per student per semester; many funding programs and
many grants are available; the nursing program could provide volunteers
to assist (under the direction of a certified health professional and
in conjunction with a physician).
- Locations-MVC has almost 1,000 square feet available in a modular for
office space, storage and exam rooms. SJC does not have anything available
at this time
- Specifically, what services will be provided
- Procedures for on-site treatment
- Procedures for referrals to other agencies such as labs, urgent care,
- On-going funding from grants, programs, etc.
- Budget Committee concerns include:
- Rising costs in the future
- If the program is not self-sustaining, expenses would have to be absorbed
by the general fund.
- Most services provided by a student health program duplicate services
that are already available in the community.
- The next meeting is June 18 at 3:30 p.m. in room 1202.
The meeting adjourned at 4:50 p.m.
