The Joliet Junior College budget that goes to the board for a vote this week reflects an ongoing decline in state funding to the point that it has a become a fraction of college revenue. Since 2000, state revenue for JJC has decreased from 18.7 percent to a projected 5 percent next fiscal year. “The college will continue to monitor the status of state funding and make the appropriate adjustments to expenditures to ensure financial stability. Possible adjustments include changes in class sizes, program offerings and staffing levels,” JJC officials stated in comments added to the draft fiscal 2018 budget.
