One free year!

Santa Ana College gives SAUSD students one free year, starting this fall (OC Reg)
     Santa Ana College is the first in Orange County to make the tuition-free offer, joining a growing national trend among community colleges.
     Long Beach Unified was a pioneer with its Long Beach Promise, which offers students from that K-12 district a tuition-free first year at Long Beach City College. At least 10 such programs exist across California, including those in the San Diego Community College District and at Ventura College.
     In Santa Ana, students from Orange County’s largest school district become eligible for the tuition-free year just by graduating.
     Tuition will be paid by the nonprofit Santa Ana College Foundation, funded in part by city and Santa Ana College employees through payroll deductions, a $5 million state grant and Santa Ana College’s Centennial Scholarship Campaign.
     Santa Ana College’s tuition for full-time students is $1,104 a school year....

Woah! Take a look at the board agenda where on Monday the folks in what they've been trying to pass off as a "marketing department" are receiving huge raises! D.O. goes from a CL16 to CL21 and her side kick, the B-Ram, range 127 to a 138! What a total waste of resources!

4:18 Where is this in the Board Agenda? Maybe I am not seeing this. It looks like a 12% increase over three years, just like the faculty.

D.O. now makes 123k. with this promo she gets 10% more to equal 136k. After 6 years she will max out at over 182k which equals a 32% total increase. Take THAT, you stupid tax payers!

She's making as much as a dean. And we can't hire more faculty? I wouldn't complain as much but she's also horrible at her job. Really, she's horrible.

To be fair, B-Ram will be working in a temp assignment, but everyone knows how that will end up, strings will be pulled so she gets the position. Initially she will receive a 12% raise putting her at 64k from 57k. After the new contract raises kick in, that puts her at 72k, a 22% increase. After 6 years she will max out at 92k, totaling a 39% raise!

Two self-serving twits. Oh by the way D.O. I was looking for B-Ram Friday afternoon and she was nowhere to be found. Keep a leash on your dog.

I'm sure D.O.'s promotion went through the process and was approved by the appropriate strategic planning committee. Does anyone know who serves on such committees know?

These promotions have the optics of organized crime.

Me thinks these comments merit being put on a new heading/thread highlighting the ongoing waste, fraud and abuse at IVC.

11:15 - ...ongoing waste, fraud, and abuse: Start with Workday, a $12M failure. When is the district going to address this debacle?
