District Board of Trustees Approves College Budget for 2021-2022

June 16, 2021 – The Santa Fe College District Board of Trustees approved the college’s proposed budget during their meeting Tuesday afternoon, as a result, the one-time supplemental, pay raises and other benefits presented at last week’s proposed budget meeting will go into effect for the new fiscal year.

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 the college navigated the uncharted waters of the pandemic. Supplements are based on start date, average hours worked and credit hours of instruction.

There is also a salary increase for both full and part-time employees. Part-time student employee salaries will increase to $10 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 by logging into eStaff, clicking the “My Information” tab, then clicking 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.
