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.

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.
