It is still unclear whether or not the CCSF Administration will decide to apply to the new status of “restoration” from the ACCJC. Some think it is a trap as reported in the San Francisco Bay Guardian. The California Federation of Teachers submitted a comment on the policy to the ACCJC explaining their concerns.
As the deadline approaches (July 31st) we need to let our administration know what we think about it. In addition to emailing the Chancellor (firstname.lastname@example.org) or the STWEP (email@example.com) you can attend the Chancellor’s listening session or make public comment for the next non-board meeting. (see below)
In the meantime, please write to Congresswoman Jackie Speier, one of our greatest allies, before it’s too late. Thank her for advocating for CCSF as we have struggled to save our college and urge her to tell the City College administration not to fall into the trap of applying for “restoration status.” The ACCJC already has the authority to grant a two-year “good cause” extension and has done this for many other colleges. Under “restoration status” the future of the 80,000 students who depend on CCSF remains in limbo while the ACCJC continues their preposterous bureaucratic brinkmanship. Click here to edit and send your message to Congresswoman Speier: help us prevent our college from falling into the trap of restoration status!
