Good morning everybody,
Last Thursday and Friday Jim Vogt, Carolyn Danko, Sheldon Flom and I traveled to Torrington for the Wyoming Community College Commission meeting.
The Commissioners passed the 2015-2016 Standard and Zero-Base Budgets. They also passed the Exception Requests and agreed to recalibrate the base enrollment period to academic years 2009-2010. Recalibration will be every 4 years and result in higher on-going funding without needing to request enrollment funding each year.
Although the Commissioners feel very strongly about the importance of performance-based funding, they eliminated language in the exception request regarding program completion metrics.
Have a happy Monday.
