AFT calls on District to stop cancelling classes

AFT has received alarming reports that low enrolled classes are being cancelled prematurely before the end of “add/drop.” AFT has formally called on the District to stop cancelling classes at a time when we desperately need students. Many prospective students continue to believe that the College is closed or closing, or that their units will not be accredited. Moreover, owing to breakdowns in the College registration and enrollment system, students trying to enroll have been shut out of the system. 

Instead of lowering the boom on classes that are in the low teens, we think every effort should be made to continue to enroll more students through the end of add/drop and to keep these classes open even if they technically fall below the 20 student minimum. This is not the time to close the door to students willing to enroll in CCSF classes. Next year, the College needs to dramatically increase enrollment or potentially face further cuts in State funding.

AFT is collecting information on the extent of the class closures. If your class is threatened or close because of low enrollment, email okeller@aft2121.org at the AFT office with specific information about the class (department, course number, units, number of students enrolled).
