At a time when community colleges are taking on an increasing role statewide in preparing workers for the new economy, the nation's largest two-year system--the Los Angeles Community College District--is struggling to recover from its worst crisis during a two-decade decline. A confluence of chronic under-funding, excessive union influence, declining enrollment, administrative instability and a bloated bureaucracy have pushed the system to the edge of bankruptcy.

The Los Angeles Community College District, under fire from several public agencies for its management practices, is home to $100,000-a-year teachers and $80,000-a-year campus police officers. Such salaries, while not typical, are made possible by the extraordinary power of the unions representing most of the 5,900 district employees, from gardeners to academic deans, officials say.

Rob DiMuro, an assistant girls' basketball coach last season at Alemany High, has been named women's basketball coach at Pierce College. The school is reviving the program it dropped in 1985 in the wake of Los Angeles Community College District budget cuts. DiMuro, 24, attended Notre Dame High and was the girls' varsity basketball coach at his alma mater from 1986-88. Cal State Northridge has signed three men's volleyball players and two softball players to letters of intent, the school announced Thursday.

Valley College in Van Nuys has cut 59 classes from its spring schedule because of budget constraints. Classes that were canceled, however, were kept to "an absolute minimum," said Sam Mayo, dean of academic affairs. "The cuts were made in conjunction with the department heads and the Valley College council and academic senate," he said. The classes were canceled because of state-imposed cuts in the Los Angeles Community College District budget, Mayo said.

Thousands of Pierce College students, administrators and faculty members signed an oversized petition Wednesday protesting the $8.2 million slashed from the Los Angeles Community College District budget last month. However, instead of directing their objections to the district, as other community colleges have done, protesters at the Woodland Hills campus addressed their concerns over the budget cuts to Gov. George Deukmejian.

An unexpected infusion of $5 million into the final Los Angeles Community College District budget will help the Valley's three junior colleges reverse enrollment losses caused by tuition hikes and cuts of fall class schedules, officials said. The money, coming partly from district reserves and partly from cuts in district office expenses, was added to the $378.1-million budget for the 1993-94 school year, adopted last week by the Los Angeles Community College Board of Trustees.

The welcome wagon is out at Pierce College, where Coach Bob Enger is attempting to resurrect a once-proud football program from a two-year death sentence imposed by Los Angeles Community College District budget cuts. "Everywhere I go on campus people are coming up to me and saying, 'Gee, we're really glad to have football back,' " Enger said. The reception might not be as warm for the Brahmas once play begins in the newly aligned Western State Conference.
