Executive Leadership Presents Proposed Budget to SF Faculty and Staff

June 11, 2021 – Thursday afternoon, Santa Fe College employees learned about the details in the college’s proposed 2021-2022 budget that will be presented for the District Board of Trustees approval. Pending approval on June 15, full and part-time faculty and staff may receive a one-time, non-recurring supplement in recognition of services performed during the 2020-2021 year as we navigated the uncharted waters of the pandemic. Supplements are based on start date, average hours worked and credit hours of instruction.

Also pending Board of Trustees approval is the budget for the new fiscal year, which begins July 1 and includes salary increases for both full and part-time employees.  If the budget is approved, part-time student employee salaries will increase to $10.00 per hour and other part-time employees may receive a 2.5% increase on their hourly rate. Adjunct faculty will see an increase of 2.5%,  raising the per credit hour rate from  $769 to $788. Full-time employee  base salaries will be increased by $500 and they will also receive a 2.5% salary increase. Full-time employees can see their projected 2021-2022 pay increase now on eStaff.  Just log into eStaff, click the “My Information” tab, then click the “Projected Pay Raise tab.    

The faculty salary study is on schedule to be completed by the end of August. During the presentation, it was announced that the college has allocated an additional $450,000 for implementation of the study results in the 2021-2022 year.
