College Planning

Integrated Planning and Budgeting

To effectively integrate its planning, budgeting, and evaluation cycle each year, the College follows this Integrated Planning and Budgeting Calendar.   

Annual Integrated Planning and Budgeting Calendar as of fall 2020


Cañada College Planning Process

The Planning and Budgeting Committee (PBC) oversees and facilitates the institution's planning processes.  For some plans, such as the Educational Master Plan and the Annual Strategic Plan, the PBC will appoint a special task force to lead the process, develop the plan, and return to the full PBC for review and discussion.  Most other college plans are in the purview of the relevant committee (e.g., Distance Education Advisory Committee leads the development of the Distance Education Strategic Plan).  For those plans, the planning and evaluation process can be found here
