Data Support for the Texas Commission on Community College Finance

Summary

NCHEMS is providing data support for the Texas Commission on Community College Finance.

Topics Approach Impacts Resources

Topics

The Texas Legislature passed SB 1230 in 2021 establishing the Commission on Community College Finance.

The Commission is working to establish recommendations for a state funding formula that creates sufficient funding levels for sustaining community college education throughout the state of Texas (see two-pager).

Approach

NCHEMS is analyzing a variety of data and preparing presentation graphics to support decision-making, participating in workgroup meetings, and preparing options regarding ways to structure components of alternative funding models that will specifically address state goals and priority issues identified by the workgroups. We will also develop a list of data required to build a model that allows the workgroup to explore the results of employing different funding options.

Impacts

This project is currently underway.
