NORTHEAST GLENDALE — Glendale Community College employees will likely be asked to accept an across-the-board pay cut of as much as 3% — depending on the severity of expected reductions in state education funding — to make up for the resulting budget shortfall, administrators said Thursday. The college’s budget committee recommended the move early this month in anticipation of as much as $3.6 million in cuts as California lawmakers attempt to trim spending in order to close a $26-billion deficit, said interim President/Supt.

The Glendale Community College Board of Trustees recently approved a reduction in the state's community college enrollment fee from $26 per semester unit to $20 beginning with the winter session. Initially, provisions of AB 1808 stated that community college districts were not permitted to lower the enrollment fee until the spring 2007 term. But this was problematic for many colleges that had inter-sessions beginning before spring 2007. Students that register simultaneously for both winter and spring would be paying two different fees, $26 for an inter-session and $20 for a semester.

Glendale Community College officials on Friday announced that they would carry on with summer school despite state funding cuts after faculty members agreed to work the six-week session for 40% less pay. But the number of classes to be offered during the summer session will also be cut by 40% compared with last year, said Ron Nakasone, vice president of administrative services. The combination of pay cuts and fewer classes will save the cash-strapped college about $1 million, he said.

Every semester, students from near and far form a queue in front of the Glendale College Bookstore. And every year, they engage in a sort of badly choreographed dance, trying to get to the section where their book is or to the cash register. But the long lines are just an illusion in terms of how well the bookstore has done in the past year, managers said. Sales have dropped at least 30%, said bookstore Manager Anjali Stanislaus, who was processing payments as fast as possible at the cash registers Monday afternoon.

Alecia Foster NORTHEAST GLENDALE -- The telephone lines at Glendale Community College are lighting up as registration for the fall semester gets underway. Not only does the fall mark the beginning of another school year, it also marks the beginning of the college's new scheduling system. "We think this new schedule is going to work a lot better," said Kristin Bruno, dean of instructional services for the school. Earlier this year, college officials decided to shorten the length of the fall and spring semester courses to add a winter session -- allowing students to take courses year-round.

The police chief of Glendale Community College was placed on leave on Tuesday, leaving the 13-member department in the hands of an officer while campus executives determine their next move. College officials refused to discuss what prompted Chief Steven P. Wagg's leave, saying it was a confidential personnel matter. They also declined to confirm if his captain, Nidal Kobaissi, had been placed on leave as well, although an officer in the department, Erin Kurasz, was named as interim supervisor.

Alecia Foster NORTHEAST GLENDALE -- By the looks of some of the district's busy high school campuses, one might never guess it was summertime. That's because summer school enrollment has swelled this year -- bringing some campuses close to regular school year enrollment levels. "This place looks like it's the middle of November," Jerry Watson, assistant principal of Glendale High, said of the busy campus. This summer there are 6,363 high school students enrolled in summer school, compared to 5,950 students in 2000.

Glendale Community College officials expressed optimism about the college's budget this week, saying the school is projected to bring in about a million dollars more in revenue than it did during the previous school year. That figure, $78.4 million, comes short of the college's 2010-11 revenue of $81.2 million, but slightly higher than the $74.5 million it largely operated on in 2011-12 and the $77.3 million last year. This year marks the first in five that the state has provided the state community college system with a 1.57% cost of living funding increase, which represents a “sharp contrast,” to the state budget cuts the college has seen in previous years, said Ron Nakasone, executive vice president of administrative services for GCC. “We were actually able to increase class offerings this year and brought back a full winter intersession,” Nakasone said.

The number of Glendale Community College summer school classes to be offered, and the salaries paid to the faculty who teach them, was thrown into doubt this week after the Board of Trustees put off voting on an agreement. College officials and faculty union representatives Tuesday initiated emergency negotiations to rework the provisions of the deal struck on April 22 that would allow them to proceed with summer school, despite a projected budget reduction of $6.7 million to $10.7 million in the coming fiscal year.

Glendale Community College officials have decided to eliminate the school’s 2012 winter intersession as they struggle to cope with state funding reductions of up to $10.7 million, a blow that could prompt administrators also to cut this year’s summer session of classes. Gov. Jerry Brown on Tuesday suspended negotiations on allowing voters to decide on extending current tax rates in the upcoming June election. If those tax rates are not extended, Glendale Community College officials said, they will see the college’s 2011-12 budget slashed by between $6.7 million and $10.7 million.
