Project #1    Deferred Maintenance Backlog

Description   Lane has a backlog of deferred maintenance projects in excess of $3 million. Many projects on the backlog list require
              immediate attention. Delaying some projects might result in more cost at a later date.

Outcomes      (see separate list of maintenance projects)


Strategic     2b: Create, enhance, and maintain inviting and welcoming facilities that are safe, accessible, functional, well-equipped,
Directions    aesthetically appealing and environmentally sound.
              3a: Achieve and sustain fiscal stability

                                                          Proposed FY05 Investments

Project #2    Health Clinic Facility

Description
              In order to accommodate the addition of staff services to the existing Student Health Clinic, a new facility is necessary.
              Space has been identified for the combined clinic. This investment is for remodeling of that space. A business plan,
              including specific performance outcomes, will be submitted for approval before the new clinic space is remodeled.

Outcomes      Approval to remodel the new space is dependent on experience serving staff this summer.


Strategic     2b: Create, enhance, and maintain inviting and welcoming facilities that are safe, accessible, functional, well-equipped,
Directions    aesthetically appealing and environmentally sound.
              3a: Achieve and sustain fiscal stability

Budget                                                    FY05
              Remodel of new facility                  500,000

              This is an estimate only; actual costs will be determined before Board approval of the project.

Return on     Unknown at this time. Employee health insurance costs are increasing significantly each year; experience rates have
Investment    been high for Lane employees. Other organizations have established in-house health clinics that helped improve
              experience ratings and increase employee productivity.

Project #7 Pilot Placement Testing Program

Description
               Administer approximately 400 placement test batteries (3 tests each) to high school students totaling 1,200 tests.

Outcomes       Students will arrive on campus with a more realistic appraisal of their academic skills and will have been alerted to skill deficits
               while still in high school; hopefully, more new students, on average, will arrive at Lane with college level skills because they will
               have had the opportunity to address deficits while still in High School.

Strategic      3b) Build Organizational capacity and systems to support student success and effective operations. 1a) Foster the personal,
Directions     professional, and intellectual growth of learners by providing exemplary and innovative teaching and learning experiences and
               student support services.

Return on      Will assist high schools in identifying underprepared students and will provide students with a more realistic appraisal of their skill
Investment     levels. More efficient for Lane because fewer students will need to take placement tests on campus. May also serve to recruit
               high school students.


*Note: Budget figures may be required only for FY05 unless the project is multi-year

Project #8     Pilot Career Development Program

Description    One possibility might be to provide 2 sections of Career and Life Planning (50-60 students) and 11 weeks of Career Counseling (10
               hrs/week).

               Travel Expenses reduces budget by $5600)               $20,000

Return on      Fewer students who mistakenly take unnecessary classes; more efficient use of financial aid funds; somewhat reduced need for
Investment     career counseling/advising once they get to Lane. May also serve to recruit high school students.

Project #10                                                       MOCA
Strategic Direction:
Transforming Students' Lives
• Foster the personal, professional, and intellectual growth of learners by providing exemplary and innovative teaching
and learning experiences and student support services.
• Position Lane as a vital community partner for creating a learning workforce in a changing economy.

Description
In the summer of 2003, the program coordination of the Medical Office Assistant (MOA) and Health Records
Technician HRT) programs combined into one individual’s workload. One program coordinator has provided for
continuity of both programs and the commonalities between MOA and HRT have served to strengthen both programs
as well as increase the chances of survival of both programs.

This proposal further integrates MOA, HRT, adds the second year to the HRT program (HIT), and the two suggested
courses of study for medical transcription and copding associate and provides a new name for the program-- Medical
Office and Clinical Assisting (MOCA). The new name will allow the program to have one place in Banner, the quarterly
schedules, and the catalog to list all the program descriptions and course descriptions and quarterly class offerings for
MOA, HRT, MT, CCA, and HIT eliminating the need for two separate headings for MOA and HRT. Data collection will
be simplified because all accounting can be accumulated under the new MOCA heading. Major codes for MOA, HRT,
and HIT will continue to be in
place so students can appropriately designate their majors.
The MOCA programs provide educational opportunities for non-traditional and less advantaged students. The
program is mostly female many of whom are single-parents. Several of the students in these programs receive
financial aid, are dislocated workers, have unreported disabilities, have served in the armed forces, are in vocational
rehabilitation programs, and/or participate in other government social support programs. According to the Lane 2002-
03 Annual PT Core Report, the MOCA students are more disadvantaged than the Family and Health Careers (FHC)
Division as a whole 68% Academically/Economically Disadvantaged vs. 61%, 41% Academically Disadvantaged vs.
29%, and 45% Economically Disadvantaged vs. 42%. The MOCA students perform well with 99% Satisfactory
Progress vs. 96% for the division.

HIT is a two-year associate’s degree program. It consists of the HRT program classes in the first year and advanced
classes in health information management in the second year. Currently, Central Oregon Community College and
Portland Community College are the only two colleges that offer HIT programs in Oregon, with none being offered in
the southern part
of the State. Lane, PCC, and COCC are proposing to align their programs to offer students greater
flexibility when transferring between community colleges.
Further, Lane’s HIT program will become part of an educational continuum from secondary through graduate
education. This educational and career ladder would articulate the current College Now courses with Lane’s HIT
associate’s degree, a baccalaureate degree which is being considered by Portland State University (PSU) and a
master’s degree being considered by Oregon Health Sciences University (OHSU). If these institutions are able to
secure finding for their respective programs, they will also seek accreditation for these programs through AHIMA.
OHSU and PSU approached Lane to commit to the HIT program for southern part of Oregon.

Project #13 Energy Efficiency

Description   Lane spends approximately $1.5 million annually on electricity and natural gas. By installing more efficient technology
              and by modifying behavior around energy usage, the college should be able to save a substantial amount of energy.
              This would have positive effects on the environment and on the college budget. An energy analyst would help us to
              save more in a shorter period of time.

Outcomes      By the end of FY06, the college will be using 10% less electricity and natural gas.
              The dollar savings per year will be at least $120,000 (after adjustment for rate increases, before expenses).

Strategic     2b: Create, enhance, and maintain inviting and welcoming facilities that are safe, accessible, functional, well-equipped,
