STUDENT COUNTS, PERSONNEL, EXPENDITURES, and PRODUCTIVITY STUDENT COUNTS. The first
data table for instructional departments contains three “counts” for
students: FTES, enrollment and headcount. FTES (Full Time Equivalent Students). One
full time equivalent student is based on 525 hours. The number 525 is
derived from a full time load of 15 hours per week multiplied by 35 weeks (two
semesters at 17.5 weeks each). Enrollment. Also known as “seat count,”
this figure represents the number of course enrollments generated by students
enrolled in one or more courses. The figure excludes enrollments in
credit courses which students dropped prior to Census, but it includes all
noncredit enrollments. Headcount. Credit students who remained enrolled after Census or noncredit students who earned eight or more positive attendance hours.
PERSONNEL. For faculty there are three
measures as well: instructional, noninstructional and chairperson FTEF. FTEF (Full Time Equivalent Faculty). One FTEF
is based on a standard, full teaching load for two semesters (fall and
spring).
FTEF NonInstructional. This
category includes ESRU items, but excludes nondepartmental reassigned time
related to activities such as AFT, Academic Senate, or DCC. Leaves are
also excluded. EXPENDITURE FIGURES. Expenditures are broken into the
source of the funds: unrestricted, restricted and other. Unrestricted. Money from the General Fund spent for ordinary
operations of the district. Restricted. Money which must be spent
for a specific purpose either by law or by local board action. Other. Money which is neither unrestricted nor
restricted. Categories 1000 to 7000: 1000 
Certificated Salaries 2000 
Classified Salaries 3000  Employee
benefits 4000  Materials
and supplies 5000  Other
operating expenses 6000  Capital
outlay 7000  Other
outgo PRODUCTIVITY FIGURES. The measures of productivity are
FTES/FTEF and revenue generation. The FTES/FTEF reflect the number of full
time students taught by a full time faculty person. Revenue generation is the FTES multiplied
the state reimbursement rate.
FTES/FTEF. Number of students per instructional hour, calculated by dividing Full Time Equivalent Students (FTES) by Full Time Equivalent Instructional Faculty (FTEF instructional). Revenue. Income generated by FTES based upon a dollar amount which the district receives for each FTES. Reimbursement rates are as follows:
INSERT DEFINITION FOR Revenue 8000 HERE. Appointments/noninstructional FTEF. Reported for Counseling Departments, the
number of all appointments divided by the noninstructional FTEF is used for
productivity. CDCP (Career
Development or College Preparation). To be eligible for enhanced funding, courses leading to a
noncredit certificate of completion or competency must be in the area of
Career Development or College Preparation and must be part of one of the
following: (1) a short term vocational program with high employment
potential; (2) a sequence of courses in (A) elementary or secondary basic
skills including sequences of courses leading to a high school diploma; (B)
workforce preparation in the basic skills of speaking, listening, reading, writing,
mathematics, decisionmaking, and problemsolving STUDENT DEMOGRAPHICS DEFINITIONS Age, Gender, and Ethnicity are reported.
Note that the ethnic groups now include separate figures for South
East Asians and Pacific Islanders. BOGG. The Board of Governors Grant fee waiver is a proxy for economic
disadvantage since only students who demonstrate a low income level qualify
for the waiver. Placement. Reported for Counseling Departments Collegiate  Students have two
collegiate level placements in mathematics and English. Lower  Lower precollegiate. Students have at least one basic skills
placement. NA  There
is no record of the student taking a placement test or receiving a placement
override or waiver from the office of Matriculation. Upper  Upper precollegiate. All other placements. Terms at CCSF. Reported
for Counseling Departments The rounded number of prior terms students have been at
CCSF. If students have no prior terms,
but are enrolled in CCSF classes, they are new. Prospective students are in SARSGRID
appointment database but have no CCSF identification number. STUDENT SUCCESS DEFINITIONS Grade Point Average.
For an individual student, calculated by multiplying course
grade (A=4, B=3, C=2, D=1, F=0) by number of units for each course, summing
all courses, then dividing the total grade points by the total number of
units enrolled. For a group of
students, the average (mean) GPA. Percent Units Passed.
For an individual student, the number
of A  C, CR and P units earned, divided by all letter grade units except
RD. For a group of students, the
average proportion (mean percent) of units passed. Attendance hours. For
positive attendance classes, mostly in noncredit, the average number of hours
attended within an academic year. If you have questions about these definitions, please
