Central Wyoming President Concerned
Riverton, Wy – A Wyoming community college president is worried about the future of her school's budget. Central Wyoming College President Jo Anne McFarland says her school's budget situation for 20-10 is unclear. That's because the Wyoming Community College Commission recently announced that money for 20-10 would be put on hold until a state task force revaluates its funding formula. McFarland says that releasing only half of the money means colleges can only plan one year into the future and that's a problem because
[AX] Some colleges will received more money and some will undoubtedly receive less.
McFarland says much of that funding is used to pay salaries. Without clear information on how much money she has available, employee raises cannot be guaranteed. The governor's office says colleges have received dramatic funding increases since 2002 and it's not as if the colleges are financially shackled.
