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.

Gary Moskowitz Robby Ettinger's plans to take a full load of classes this summer at Glendale Community College changed after the college canceled an entire summer session. GCC normally offers two five-week summer sessions. College officials this year canceled the second summer session in an effort to cut costs. The first -- and only -- summer session ends today. The college saved about $350,000 by cutting the second summer session, primarily by not having to pay part-time instructors, college officials said.

NORTHEAST GLENDALE — Never underestimate the motivating power of Gatorade on a hot summer day. With each victory in a competition or heads-up play performed in a drill, the attendants of the second annual Falcons Summer Baseball Camp would rapidly scurry across Stengel Field to claim their liquid reward. But it was far more than just the chance to win free sports drinks that lured a sizable group of youth ballplayers ages 7-12 to Stengel Field for the camp, which began on Monday and concluded Thursday.

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.

A bad situation at Glendale Community College appears only to be getting worse. If state revenues fail to meet expectations, the college is ready to reduce its 2012 summer session by up to 80 classes and cut faculty pay by 3.95% - a tough pill for everyone, including students, to swallow after the campus went through painful cost-cutting measures earlier this year. Under pressure from state funding cuts, the 2011 summer session was already scaled back, and the 2012 winter session has been eliminated altogether.

The Glendale Community College trustees on Friday voted unanimously to ratify an agreement that will enable the campus to offer 200 classes during the six-week summer session. Summer school starts on June 20, with early registration kicking off Monday. College officials and faculty union representatives negotiated on and off for weeks in an effort to maximize the number of summer school classes offered despite multimillion-dollar budget cuts. Without faculty concessions, the school would have offered no more than 100 summer school classes, officials said.

NORTHEAST GLENDALE — Students continue to compete for seats at Glendale Community College's summer session, continuing a year-long trend of soaring enrollment. Amid fewer classes on the schedule, students are filling classes beyond capacity, President/Supt. Dawn Lindsay said. "The way I interpret this data, our classes are beyond capacity," she said. "Our faculty has taken in students above and beyond the cap they have, because the faculty is being sensitive to the classes students have to take."

Glendale Community College will be offering more classes for the summer and winter sessions, however, full-time faculty members teaching those courses will be seeing smaller paychecks. Where faculty members had once earned up to $7,200 to teach a three-unit class during the summer or winter, they will instead be earning about $4,500. The savings associated with the reduced pay during the short sessions is what is allowing the college to offer more classes, said Ron Nakasone, executive vice president of administrative services.

A grim financial forecast at Glendale Community College is cracking relations between some constituent groups on campus. Based on the California state budget passed last week, the college is facing a midyear cut of $4.6 million if Gov. Jerry Brown's tax initiative fails in November. That cut would be $500,000 more than previously anticipated, Ron Nakasone, vice president of administrative services, said Monday. In total, the college could be forced to shrink spending by more than $8 million in 2012-13 after already downshifting to $76 million in total expenditures in 2011-12.

Hundreds of students at Glendale Community College graduated Friday, leaving behind a campus struggling to accommodate future generations while facing an uncertain future themselves. In the face of a lackluster job market, many students are choosing to stay within the college sphere, transferring to four-year institutions. But even those campuses are starting to tighten the flow of incoming students as they deal with their own budget woes. During the last 18 months, cost-cutting measures at Glendale Community College have included the reduction of summer session, the elimination of winter session, pay reductions for the management, faculty and classified employee bargaining units, and early-retirement incentives for faculty members.

Even though the Hoover High football team cut its spring practices short by a week, the two and a half weeks the Tornadoes did spend going through their paces sans helmets and pads on the practice field were still a considerable step up from last offseason. Hired late last May, second-year Hoover Coach Andrew Policky didn't even get his staff assembled until the summer, much less stage a spring session last season. Now the Tornadoes are looking to get an early start on turning the corner from last year's 0-10 campaign.

Glendale Community College is poised to reduce its 2012 summer session by an additional 80 classes and cut faculty pay 3.95% if state revenues fail to meet expectations, according to the terms of a new contract announced Tuesday. “No one is happy with it, but it was the best we could do, so we are just going to have to accept it,” Faculty Guild President Isabelle Saber said. The agreement between the college and its faculty union hinges on the severity of mid-year state budget cuts to public education that are expected to be announced mid-December, representatives for both parties said.

Glendale Community College will operate about 80 employees short in the coming academic year, the result of a partial hiring freeze and an early retirement incentive designed to minimize personnel expenses amid state budget cuts, officials said. “I have to tell you, I am sitting here and I am speechless as to the work the remaining faculty and staff are doing,” Armine Hacopian, vice president of the college’s board of trustees, said at the board meeting Monday. “I want to applaud all those who are here and doing an outstanding job.” About 60 staff positions were vacated via a partial hiring freeze for a savings of $2.2 million, said Ron Nakasone, vice president of administrative services.
