SPARC Update

The Skyline College Strategic Planning and Allocation of Resources Committee (SPARC) met on Thursday, September 10, 2020.

Tri-chair Eloisa Briones shared a summary of the Fiscal Year 2020-21 Final Budget Report that was adopted by the Board of Trustees (BOT) at the meeting held on September 9, 2020.

Additionally, committee members provided an overview of budgeting terminology. SPARC is charged with reviewing Fund 1 only.

For the balance of the meeting, members finalized recommendations for the Comprehensive Program Review process redesign under the guidance of Tri-Chairs Leigh Anne Shaw and Ingrid Vargas.  Committee members will next seek input from their constituents and make a final recommendation at the October 8, 2020 SPARC meeting.  The recommendation will be presented to the College Governance Council, who in turn will forward a recommendation to the President.  If accepted, training on the new process will begin next semester for programs starting the Comprehensive Program Review process in Spring 2021. Other programs would use the new process for Program Review beginning in fall 2021.

SPARC meets on the second and the last Thursday of the month from 2:10 p.m. to 4:00 p.m.
