Budget Updates 2018-2019

Due to declining enrollment, the Foothill-De Anza Community College District (FHDA) began the 2017-18 FY with a structural operating deficit of $10.3 million. To counter this, the district has identified a budget reduction strategy that includes: 

  • -$2M for 17/18, -$3M for 18/19, and -$5.3M for 19/20.
  • Distribution of reductions is 35% Foothill, 50% De Anza, and 15% District.
  • Foothill’s share of the reduction is $5.355M (original reduction was $3.5M -- please see below presentations).
  • Reduction amounts are subject to change


The college is soliciting feedback at various governance meetings and via this feedback form

The district and the college are also holding town hall meetings to discuss the budget and upcoming reductions. 

The budget estimates were based on enrollment projections and financial conditions that are constantly shifting and are subject to change.


July 1, 2018: Budget Reductions for Years 1 & 2 (total of $1,750,000) must be identified.

December 31, 2018: - *Additional $1,750,000 for Year 3 reductions shall be identified.

July 1, 2019: Year 1, 2 & 3 cuts must be fully implemented.
