The Skyline College Strategic Planning and Allocation of Resources Committee (SPARC) met on Thursday, February 11, 2021.

Tri-chair Ingrid Vargas, Dean of Planning, Research, Innovation and Effectiveness led the discussion on review of the new Skyline Planning and Allocation Process. (See CPR Task Force Recommendations, p. 5)

The Committee heard presentations from Vice President of Administrative Services Eloisa Briones and Manager of Finance and Operations Paul Cassidy on outstanding resource requests and allocation scenarios of fund 1 for Fiscal Year 2020-2021. Due to the better than planned projections for the State Budget and the college budget, SPARC will have an opportunity to provide a recommendation on funding options for fund 1.  Committee members broke out into small groups to confer and provide their initial feedback.  The next steps include members soliciting input from their constituent groups and bringing them back to the next SPARC meeting for committee discussion.
