SIGNIFICANT       Completed resource deployment model for City Council and neighborhood
                  associations. Modeling developed from GIS and commercial mapping
PROJECTS          software and integrated into existing response data.             Modeling
                  demonstrates current workload and response patterns and times; simulates
                  workload and response patterns given a variety of scenarios including new
stations, new station locations, units out of service and units given
different protocols. The analysis and modeling project was employed to
justify construction of a new fire station.

Completed the development of an alternative shift schedule and benefit
proposal. Alternative scheduling and benefit proposals were analyzed to
determine most efficient schedule within existing labor market, current
City policy, FLSA standards and daily staffing requirements. Resulted in
improved daily staffing and savings in overtime ($600,000) yearly.

Leader of team building process with Department program managers. Focus
on basic employee contracts with respect to communications, role
identification, functional responsibilities, organization processes and
reporting/accountability system.

Completed Reallocation Study, a comprehensive analysis of existing resource
utilization and response data. Based on study data, managed a community
input process to determine if a fire station would be closed with the staff
being re-deployed to a new fire company (savings of over $4,000,000 in five-
year plan of services) or if City Council would approve funding for hiring an
additional truck company. City Council subsequently approved funding for
hiring an additional truck company, thus allowing all fire stations to remain
operational and fully staffed.

Managing a total Workforce Diversity Program. Program managed through a
Workforce Council, assigned committees and staff. The program supports
recruitment, hiring and promotion of a professional, motivated and diverse
workforce. Collaborated with local Urban League to develop recruitment and
mentoring program. Presented program at the IAFC Conference, 2001.

Replacement Plan. The Apparatus Replacement Plan included the design,
specification and scheduled purchase of apparatus. Within three years,
obsolete apparatus with average fleet age of 12 years was replaced, bringing
the average age to four years with over 40 emergency response vehicles.

Completed a comprehensive Standards of Coverage analysis recommending
planning for services including a 5-, 10-, and 20-year plan. As a result, City
Council passed a resolution on 8/10/99 establishing, for planning purposes, an
8-minute and 12-minute response time standard with a goal of achieving a 6-
minute response in five years. In 2001, based on the study recommendations,
a Public Safety Tax was passed to build three new fire stations, and add two
additional truck companies.




Managed the construction and the implementation of a $16,000,000
800 MHz regional trunked radio system .

Completed the construction of three 2.6 million state-of-the-art fire stations.

TOPIC:                Look-back Analysis for Budget Formula Allocation (FY 2007-08)

PRESENTED BY:         Cliff Richardson, Vice President for Finance and Administration
                      Mark Superka, Budget Director

EXPLANATION:

The Fiscal Year 2006-07 final student FTE count was submitted to CCHE in July. As a result of
the final SFTE figures, the system office has performed its annual look-back analysis to
determine the final allocation of base funding for FY 2007-08.

Attachment I compares the estimated FY 2006-07 SFTE to the Final FY 2006-07 SFTE. System-
wide, the variance from estimated to final was 1.28 percent. The SFTE variance ranged from a
negative 5.65 percent to a positive 0.44 percent.

Attachment II outlines the impact of the updated SFTE data on the FY 2007-08 funding
distribution (given the size factor calculations). This reflects the model approved by the Board in
the May 2007 meeting, with finalized resident FTE figures. Colleges that experienced a decline
in final enrollment compared to estimated enrollment see a decrease in funding—on a relative
basis compared to other colleges—and visa versa. The total dollar amount change for all
colleges was a net zero. However, the budgetary variance ranged from a decrease of $324,474 to
an increase of $138,226.

Attachment III provides a summary of the difference in FY 2007-08 allocations between the May
original allocation and the September Look-back.



RECOMMENDATION:

Staff recommends that the Board approve the look-back analysis and changes to colleges’
allocation as outlined in Attachment II and Attachment III.

                                                                           ATTACHMENTS:

                                       September 12, 2007

TOPIC:                Front Range Community College - Larimer Campus Facilities Master Plan

PRESENTED BY:         Karen Reinertson, President, Front Range Community College

EXPLANATION:

Front Range Community College requests approval of its Facilities Master Plan for the Larimer
Campus dated August 2007. Below is a summary of the Master Plan. The full Master Plan is
available online at http://www.frontrange.edu/FRCCTemplates/FRCC1.aspx?id=5575

Overall Summary:

Since opening its doors in 1988, Front Range Community College (FRCC)-Larimer Campus has
recorded an increase in full-time equivalent (FTE) enrollment of 368% and an increase in usable
space of approximately 68%. Based on historic population (Larimer County population
increased more than 30% in the 1990s) and enrollment trends, no letup in enrollment growth is
predicted for this master planning cycle.

The FRCC-Larimer Campus started with an FTE enrollment of 608 students. By 2005, FTE
enrollment had reached 3,015. The campus also supports over 400 high school students enrolled
in career technical programs. These figures do not include enrollments in non-credit and
continuing education classes on the Larimer Campus. Additionally, 450,000 library patrons are
served annually at the Harmony Library.

The population of the Larimer Campus service area has shown rapid growth in excess of 30%
over the past 10 years. Students enrolled at Colorado State University (CSU), four miles north of
the Larimer Campus, find the substantial number of “for transfer” core courses offered at FRCC-
Larimer attractive. Regis University and Colorado Christian University have satellite campuses
in Fort Collins and classes offered at the FRCC-Larimer Campus readily fit into their academic
programs.

The history of the Larimer Campus is therefore characterized by steady FTE growth. Projections
through fall 2010 forecast a 29.76% increase in enrollment: from 3,015 FTE in fall term 2005 to
3,912 FTE in fall term 2010. In concert with this postsecondary FTE growth, secondary
programs of the Board of Cooperative Educational Services (BOCES) project both increased
program offerings and student enrollment.

Building space projections show that the Larimer Campus will have a space deficit of
approximately 90,000 assignable square feet (ASF) by fall 2010 based on target year student
FTE projections. Deficits of space occur in all academic, academic support, and auxiliary space
categories. The physical response to the space needs findings illustrates the need for additional
facilities to satisfy the space needs requirements at the target year.
                                                            WORK SESSION DISCUSSION I, I
                                                             CONSENT AGENDA ITEM VI, B
                                                                             Page 2 of 2

During the previous master planning cycle, three new buildings were constructed on the Larimer
Campus: Harmony Library, Challenger Point, and Longs Peak Student Center. Additionally, two
renovation projects were completed in 2002: Blanca Peak and Mount Antero’s east section.
During the summer of 2006, two temporary parking lots were paved and a new entry on Shields
Street was constructed.

Capital Projects

This Facilities Master Plan recommends several short-term and long-term general fund and
auxiliary projects. The general fund projects include an addition to Challenger Point, a small
addition to Mount Antero and minor renovation of that space for student services and academic
support, and an addition and renovation to Maroon Peak. The College is working with CSU
towards integration of the Veterinary Technology program and the Veterinary Medicine
program, which would most likely be located at CSU thereby moving the physical program
requirements from the FRCC-Larimer Campus. Maroon Peak, the present primary location of
the FRCC Veterinary Technology program, would then be renovated and an addition added for
Physical Plant. If the Veterinary Technology program remains at the FRCC-Larimer Campus,
Maroon Peak should be expanded and renovated to serve the program. The new Arts and Letters
Academic Building is needed to provide the necessary classroom, office, assembly, and
laboratory space for the FRCC-Larimer Campus to fulfill its mission. The addition to Harmony
Library is considered longer term in nature, but was identified during this process as being unmet
needs should growth continue as projected. The auxiliary funded project includes space for
additional student center facilities.

However, the existing, limited land holdings of 47 acres will require the college to make difficult
decisions as it attempts to strike a balance between the need for additional buildings and open
land for parking to accommodate additional students. Because of these significant site
limitations, this Facilities Master Plan also suggests alternate site development in the Loveland
area.

Full implementation of this Master Plan will align facilities to meet the programmatic needs of
the academic plan for the Larimer Campus based on projected enrollments. It will also provide
the necessary space for academic and academic support functions and provide adequate office
support to instructors. The sustained and unprecedented growth in FTE and in student headcount
offers no indication of slowing. It is imperative that additional facilities be provided for delivery
of academic programs.

Recommendation:

Staff recommends approval of the Front Range Community College – Larimer Campus Facilities
Master Plan.

TOPIC:                 BP 4-23 College Opportunity Fund Stipend

PRESENTED BY:          Kristin Corash, AVP Strategic Planning and Research

EXPLANATION:

In 2004, the General Assembly passed Senate Bill 04-189, the College Opportunity Fund Act,
creating the College Opportunity Fund stipend for each undergraduate student in Colorado who
applies for the stipend and who is admitted and registers to attend a state or participating private
institution of higher education and is determined to be eligible by the Colorado Student Loan
Program to receive a stipend.

Staff proposes BP 4- 23 College Opportunity Fund Stipend which clearly summarizes the
stipend’s purpose and delineates which students are eligible and not eligible for the stipend
according to C.R.S. 23-18-101, et seq. and Colorado Commission on Higher Education Policy.
The staff at the system office as well as the college presidents and staff have reviewed the policy
and are in agreement.


RECOMMENDATION:

That the SBCCOE adopt Board Policy 4:23 as provided.

Policy Statement


The College Opportunity Fund (COF) is a trust fund, in the form of a tuition stipend, for
the benefit of eligible Colorado undergraduate students. To qualify, a student must be
admitted and registered to attend a state or participating private institution of higher
education in Colorado and have had eligibility verified by the Colorado student loan
program. The stipend award is not automatic for eligible students – the student must
apply for the benefit to receive it. An eligible undergraduate student may use the
stipend for undergraduate courses and graduate-level courses that apply toward the
student's undergraduate degree and are taken at a state or participating private
institution of higher education at a fixed rate per credit hour, set annually by the general
assembly, which in no case shall exceed the student's total in-state tuition. The value of
the per-credit-hour stipend shall be the same for each eligible undergraduate student,
regardless of the state institution of higher education that the student attends. The
student shall be responsible for paying the student's share of total in-state tuition, if any.

COF ELIGIBILITY

The following students are eligible to receive the COF stipend:
• Students “enrolled at a state institution and … classified as an in-state student for
   tuition purposes” (C.R.S. 23-18-102(5)(a))
                                                              WRITTEN REPORT II, B
                                                         CONSENT AGENDA ITEM VI, D
                                                                       Page 3 of 4

•   Students who have applied and been accepted into the COF program (C.R.S. 23-18-
    202(5)(a))
•   Students who have requested that a payment from the COF is made on their behalf
    to the institution(s) they are attending (C.R.S. 23-18-202(5)(a))
•   Students who are classified as undergraduate students and have not exceeded their
    lifetime-credit-hour limitation (145 hours) or have already completed their
    baccalaureate degree and are eligible to receive stipend payments for an additional
    30 undergraduate credit hours (C.R.S. 23-18-202(5)(c)(I))
•   Students enrolled in the Post Secondary Enrollment Options (PSEO) or Fast Track
    programs. PSEO or Fast Track courses taken with COF stipends will count against
    a student’s 145 credit hour limitation. However, in the event the student exceeds this
    limit, the student may request a one-year waiver of the lifetime credit hour limitation
    from the institution attended when the student reaches the limit.
•   Students enrolled in Basic Skills courses. Basic Skills courses taken with COF
    stipends will not count against the student’s 145 credit hour limitation.
•   Students receiving institutional scholarships granted to a special group of students,
    such as employees or employees’ dependents, are eligible to receive the COF
    stipend if the following criteria are met: the eligible employee or dependent must pay
    the tuition and fees when registering for the course, and there is a published
    application process under which recipients qualify and receive reimbursement.
•   Children and grandchildren of the displaced Auraria residents who are granted free
    tuition and Native-American students attending Fort Lewis College under its
    statutory role and mission are eligible for COF stipends.
•   U.S. Military personnel or their dependents, and Olympic trainees, whose out-of-
    state tuition is waived under C.R.S. 23-7-103 and 23-7-105, respectively, are eligible
    for COF stipends.
•   Students participating in the Colorado Education Exchange Program (CEEP) are
    eligible for COF stipends (Note: No student may participate in CEEP for more than
    one year).
•   Pursuant to statute, C.R.S. 23-7-109, employees and their dependent children who
    have been transferred to Colorado within the last 12 months by their companies, as
    part of a state or local economic development incentive, or have been hired as
    faculty at a Colorado public institution of higher education may be eligible to receive
    in-state tuition and COF.

COF INELIGIBILITY

The following students are not eligible to receive the COF stipend:
•     Students enrolled in DHE-approved reciprocity agreements because institutions
      receive funding for these students through their fee for service contracts.
•     Although they receive in-state or reduced tuition, Canadian military personnel and
      their dependents, and WICHE Undergraduate Exchange Program (WUE)
      students are not eligible for COF stipends.

•     Transcripted credits not directly attributed to college instruction, such as AP, ACE,
      IB, and CLEP are not COF eligible.
•     Students enrolled in off-campus, extended campus, or continuing education
      classes that are not supported by state general fund moneys, except as approved
      by the Department of Higher Education (DHE). This includes all course sections
      where the enrollment is closed to the general public, the curriculum is customized
      for an employer or the course is funded by customized job training dollars that are
      separately appropriated and outlined in C.R.S. 23-60-306 and 307.


Scope
This policy applies to all state system community colleges.

Procedures
The System President shall promulgate such procedures as may be needed to
implement this policy.

TOPIC:                 Written Report on Fiscal Year 2007-08 Perkins Funds Allocation

PRESENTED BY:          Dr. Linda Bowman, VP of Academic and Student Services
                       Jennifer Sobanet, AVP of Compliance and Technical Support
                       Lorrie Toni, Perkins Director

EXPLANATION:

In the April 11, 2007 SBCCOE meeting, the Board approved the Perkins Transition Plan and
along with that Plan the formula allocation for the Perkins funds. This was then submitted to the
US Department of Education - Office of Vocational and Adult Education and approved. CCCS
used this formula for the Fiscal Year 2007-08 budget allocations to the Perkins sub-recipients.
Attached is a list of the total dollars allocated to each sub-recipient for the current year. Below is
an excerpt from the Perkins Transition Plan describing the current-year budget formula
allocation.

Beginning with the Program Year of 2007-08, Colorado will combine the Tech Prep
appropriation into the Distribution portion of the Basic Grant award. There are three benefits to
this allocation of the state allotment:
    • Better facilitates continuation of secondary to postsecondary linkages by keeping the
         postsecondary data reporting requirements from becoming cost prohibitive.
    • Allows enough funds to provide Reserve dollars to all recipients, laying a framework for
         State directed use of Reserve funds, if needed.
    • Decreases state level Tech Prep administration costs and thus getting more funds to the
         classroom and student level for stronger impact.

All Tech Prep funds will be placed into the Distribution to Local Recipients category; therefore,
none of those dollars will be used directly by CCCS. Please note that the dollars being
distributed also include a significant amount of roll-forward funds from prior years. We do not
anticipate this amount being as large as it is this year and have warned sub-recipients to not
expect this level of grant funding in future years. This is a one-time event. The Colorado
allocation of the state Perkins allotment for Fiscal Year 2007-08 is as follows:

Total Title I Allotment: $15,865,151

State Administration: $793,258 (5 percent of Title I Allotment)

   Colorado will set aside 5 percent of the Basic Grant award for State Administration. This
   amount is matched by the State of Colorado.
                                                                      WRITTEN REPORT II, D
                                                                               Page 2 of 8
State Leadership: $1,586,515 (10 percent of Title I Allotment)
   Colorado will set aside 10 percent of the Basic Grant award for Leadership activities,
   including $60,000 for services that prepare individuals for nontraditional career fields and
   $60,000 to serve individuals in state correctional institutions.

Total Local Funds Allocation: $14,880,036
   Colorado has chosen to distribute 85 percent of the Title I Allotment PLUS 100 percent of
   Title II (Tech Prep) Allotment to eligible recipients. To be eligible, the recipient must be an
   eligible public local educational agency and either have CCCS approved CTE program(s) or
   have a legal contract with an eligible recipient that does have CCCS approved CTE
   program(s.)

Non-Reserved Local Funds: $13,392,033 (90 percent of Total Local Funds Allocation)
   Colorado will distribute 60 percent of the Total Non-Reserved local funds to eligible and
   participating postsecondary institutions and 40 percent of the Total Non-Reserved local funds
   to eligible and participating secondary school districts.
       • Post-Secondary: $8,035,220
       • Secondary: $5,356,813

   The Colorado Community College System will continue with its historical split of 60 percent
   of the Non-Reserved Local funds for postsecondary education and 40 percent for secondary
   education for the following reasons:
       • All postsecondary area vocational schools (AVS)/technical colleges are included in
          the postsecondary percentage split.
       • Average per pupil funding for secondary students ($7,468) is significantly higher than
          the College Opportunity Fund (COF) stipend at $2,580 per Student Full-time
          Equivalent (SFTE) for postsecondary students.
       • Through the Colorado Vocational Act state appropriations, secondary recipients
          receive approximately $20 million to help offset the cost of secondary CTE programs.
       • During the recession and severe budget cuts of 2002-2004, secondary school districts
          received increases, as required by Colorado Amendment 23, of inflation plus 1
          percent while community colleges suffered a decline in funding of 35 percent per
          SFTE. Even with improvements in the economy and the passage of Colorado
          Referendum C, a five-year time-out of the constitutional TABOR Amendment that
          limits the state’s revenue growth to inflation plus population, the community colleges
          are 18 percent short of their Fiscal Year 2000-01 general fund funding.

       This funding split will be revisited only if the aforementioned factors materially change.

Reserve: $1,488,003 (10 percent of Total Local Funds Allocation) [Per Section 112 (c)]

 STATE BOARD FOR COMMUNITY COLLEGES AND OCCUPATIONAL EDUCATION

                                     September 12, 2007

TOPIC:               Lowry Campus Status of Development Efforts,
                     Deed Restriction Transfer and Environmental Issues

PRESENTED BY:        Gwen Anderson, Director of Lowry Development

EXPLANATION:

1. Development Efforts:
12Work on the Minor Boundary Adjustment, the rezoning and the General Development Plans
associated with the Lowry Campus redevelopment has been proceeding between CCCS staff, the
development consultant team and the staffs of the City of Aurora and the City and County of
Denver over the spring and summer months. A summary of each area of activity is provided
below.

      (a)     Minor Boundary Adjustment. The adjusted Aurora/Denver boundary, as
      proposed, has been fixed in such a way as to have no resulting impact on the amount of
      Lowry Campus land located within each municipal jurisdiction; however, the new
      boundary will be reoriented so as to follow the internal Campus street grid, facilitate the
      site’s development and allow for more efficient delivery of public services. Staffs of
      both Cities and Arapahoe County, along with City Council Representatives Deborah
      Wallace and Marcia Johnson, have reviewed and endorsed the boundary adjustment. As
      required by state statute, the adjustment has been submitted to the staffs of both the
      Aurora and Denver Public School Districts and has received a favorable response. It is
      anticipated that the boundary adjustment will be considered by the Boards of both Public
      School Districts at meetings later in September and in early October for supportive
      resolutions and then be submitted to the City Councils of both Aurora and Denver for
      approvals in October. Once approved at these levels, a Petition will be filed with the
      State Boundary Adjustment Commission for approval of the boundary adjustment as
      between Denver County and Arapahoe County. Once the boundary adjustment has been
      approved by the Commission, a petition for annexation will be submitted for approval by
      the City of Aurora in order to complete the boundary adjustment process between the
      City and County of Denver and the City of Aurora. An aerial depiction of the existing
      and proposed adjusted boundary is attached.

      (b)     Rezoning and General Development Plans. The consulting team has prepared for
      review by Aurora and Denver Planning staffs land use alternatives to serve as the basis
      for the rezoning applications and General Development Plans for Aurora and Denver, and
      engineering work has commenced to provide traffic and infrastructure data required for
      the General Development Plans. CCCS staff and consulting team members are
      continuing to work with Denver and Aurora to prepare the rezoning application so that
      they can be submitted to both jurisdictions upon approval of the Boundary Adjustment
      and Annexation and the completion of the Deed restriction transfer as described below.
                                                                     WRITTEN REPORT II, E

                                                                              Page 2 of 2

       It is anticipated that the first formal community meeting in connection with the Campus
       development will be conducted in late October or early November.

       (c)     Developer Solicitation. Work on developer solicitation documents is underway,
       and a consultant has been selected to assist CCCS staff in the preparation of a Request for
       Developer Qualifications and Request for Proposals in connection with a first phase of
       redevelopment of the Lowry Campus. While the timing of issuance of the solicitation
       documents will be tied to both the completion of the deed restriction transfer and the
       filing of the rezoning applications, the targeted time for issuance of the Request for
       Qualifications is late October, 2007 and the targeted time for issuance of a Request for
       Proposals is late January, 2008. Assuming these target dates, the selection of a first-
       phase developer (or developers) would be anticipated in March of 2008.

2. Deed Restriction Transfer: Following a meeting between Gwen Anderson and the Director
of Real Property for the U.S. Department of Education in April of 2007, draft Deed restriction
transfer documents were revised and resubmitted to the U.S. Department of Education. The
Director’s Office provided notice to CCCS in July of its approval of the revised documents, and
has since advised CCCS that, on August 7, 2007, it provided written notice to the U.S. Air Force
of its intention to transfer the use restrictions associated with the Lowry Campus. The U.S. Air
Force has a thirty-day period, expiring on September 6, 1007, during which it may object to the
proposed deed restriction transfer.

3. Environmental Issues: In April of 2007, the U.S. Air Force indicated that it wished to defer
discussion of its remaining environmental liability with respect to the Lowry Campus until the
U.S. Department of Education determined its course of action with respect to the deed restriction
transfer. Following notification from the U.S. Department of Education that it had issued its
notice of such action to the Air Force on August 7, and in anticipation of additional demolition
activity on the Campus, CCCS has requested an expedited meeting with appropriate U.S. Air
Force representatives for the purpose of discussing a privatization strategy for addressing the Air
Force’s remaining environmental liabilities on the Campus. Staff is awaiting a response from the
Air Force.


RECOMMENDATION:

The Board is requested to delegate to CCCS President Dr. Nancy McCallin the authority to
execute on behalf of the Board all necessary documentation related to the development of the
Lowry campus. This delegation includes, but is not limited to, documents related to the Minor
Boundary Adjustment, Rezoning, General Development Plan, and Developer Solicitation as
