CGCC Budget Gets Board Approval

By a 5-2 vote, the Columbia Gorge Community College Board of Education approved the school’s budget for 2018-19.  Board Chair Stu Watson says they have had a period of enrollment decline challenging the school’s finances, but he adds a plan is in place to reverse that.  Watson notes one of the steps taken in this budget is a full-time incentive that calls for students to only pay tuition for the first 14 credit hours, and no tuition would be charged for the 15th credit, or for any credit hour beyond that up to 20 credits per term.  Watson says the budget was created to leave flexibility for incoming school president Marta Yera Cronin to assemble her own team.  She assumes her position on July 1.
