Description [Washington, D.C.]] : Distributed by ERIC Clearinghouse, 1978 
16 p. 
Summary

The highly centralized Washington State System of Community Colleges, as created by the Community College Act of 1967, is administered by a governor-appointed state board with one member from each of the seven congressional districts. Reporting to the state board on all revenues and expenditures made are 22 local boards of trustees. A commission for vocational education distributes federal funds to the K-12 and community college systems and solves jurisdictional disputes between the community colleges and vocational-technical schools. Regulations for expenditure of funds are set by the state budget director and the director of general administration. Fifteen percent of the operating budget is derived from tuition of $100 per quarter plus $16 for student activities; another 85% is derived through legislative appropriations. This description of the system also touches upon: residence requirements, formula-driven budget models used for both defining resource needs and for distributing resources, resource requirements, enrollment projections, faculty salary schedules, instruction and primary support services, library and learning resource centers, plant operation and maintenance, management information reports, student services, and institutional support.
