The Texas Community College Teachers Association (TCCTA), formerly known as the Texas Junior College Teachers Association (TJCTA), publishes the TCCTA Messenger newsletter four times a year to cover events, legislation and TCCTA activities affecting Texas community colleges and their faculty. This document contains four newsletter issues (September 1999, December 1999, April 2000 and January 2000). The September 1999 issue describes an 11% increase in state funding of community colleges compared with the previous biennium, as well as other educational funding increases. The mission of the Virtual College of Texas (VCT) is described, which is to allow students access to any course or curriculum offered by any community college in the state. The December 1999 issue features findings of the twenty-third year of TCCTA's statewide study of faculty salaries and benefits, listing part-time and full time faculty salaries by college. The April 2000 issue covers the retirement of Charles Burnside, executive director of TCCTA for the last 27 years, and provides a table of Texas public community college tax rates and assessed valuations for 1983-84, 1994-95 and 1999-2000. The January 2000 issue, organized around the theme, "The Courage to Teach," also functions as the TCCTA annual state convention program, listing officers, committees and members; new officer election information; and brief descriptions of convention seminars and activities.
