De Anza budget crisis: Red Wheelbarrow

Jack Molmud, Christian Trujano, and Ethan Maneja

De Anza College’s Red Wheelbarrow magazine is one of 11 programs, voted on by the Instructional Planning and Budget Team, to be reviewed by an administrative Viability Advisory Team.

The team will examine the programs according to unpublicized criteria and recommend a course of action to be sent to College Council. An increase of the district budget deficit to $17.6 million from $10 million, including an instructional budget reduction to an estimated $4.4 million from $3.3 million, has pushed back the deadline to send the reviews, leaving the community with more questions.

De Anza’s Instructional Planning and Budget Team is tasked with deciding how these cuts will affect the college’s future.
