In contact hours, we are up 1.04% in potential weekly student-contact hours and 1.47% in credit-contact hours.

Acct #(s): 06-10-42-4250-6920-1119.00-1617/100%

NOTE: Ms. Studinka for Spring 98 semester will be responsible for the opening at the Escondido Center. Temporary contract position. Hired in accordance with Education Code Section 87481

Barbara Hughes noted that although it is a good idea to open a child-care facility at the Escondido Education Center, she realizes that the child-care center on this campus is running at a loss financially. She remembers that we had to pull out of the one that was in the industrial complex and wonders if we are opening the Escondido facility knowing that we will be operating it at a loss. Pat Schwerdtfeger responded that the final decision to open the Escondido facility has not yet been made. The Facilities Planning Committee has two questions that they asked to be addressed. One was the financial viability of opening another center; the second was the renovation cost. Mr. Schwerdtfeger reported that we had applied for a grant from the state for the renovation of the facility, and received approval for $135,000 that we can accept. It is planned that we will use the former Wells Fargo Bank building at the Escondido Center for this purpose. Before we applied for the grant, we attempted to determine whether or not the $135,000 would be sufficient to do the renovation, and Mike Ellis informed us that it is sufficient. If we do decide to go forward, we will also be looking for outside help. For the past year and a half, we have been working on reorganizing the center with the goal of making it more financially viable. A business plan has been devised and will be sent to the Vice Presidents soon. It will contain reasonable, conservative projections that would allow us to operate this center more efficiently as well as open the Escondido facility. We also applied for the extension of the state pre-school grant that provides about $70,000 for a half-day program. We applied to the state to extend that for a full day and have been granted that. This will approximately double the money we receive from the state for the pre-school. We also have additional funds from welfare reform that we believe will come to the center. Mr. Schwerdtfeger feels that the planned reorganization will have a positive effect on the financial health of the center.

The Vote was unanimous.
