CGCC Board Passes Budget

The Columbia Gorge Community College Board of Education has passed its 2015-16 budget.  School officials say the budget will allow existing academic programs to continue while maintaining what they term “below average class sizes and tuition rates.”  Most cuts in the budget have already been implemented, and school officials believe returning students should not notice service level changes compared to the current spring term.  During budget committee work last month, that panel added back funding for a full-time student services employee at the front desk of Hood River’s Indian Creek Campus. Members of that committee told board members administrative overhead needs to be reduced from 30 percent of the budget to 20 percent in the next year.  The budget includes funding to renew the college’s current academic master plan.
