Accreditation reform bills in CA Legislature

Legislative solutions for fair accreditation: Three bills brought forward by SF’s legislative delegation seek to address the faulty accreditation process that CCSF and our state’s other community colleges find themselves subject to.

Assembly Bill 1397 (Ting) seeks to bring the community college accreditation process into compliance with state and federal laws and regulations to ensure that fairness, consistency, and transparency guide the manner in which accreditation procedures are conducted, protecting the interests of community college students, our community, and the state.

AB 1385 (Ting) would require notification to and the approval of community college member institutions before an accrediting agency increases special assessments for legal fees charged to a community college.

AB 404 (Chiu) would require the Board of Governors of the California Community Colleges to solicit anonymous system-wide feedback on the performance of the regional agency that accredits community colleges and communicate this feedback to the federal body that oversees and reviews accrediting agencies, the National Advisory Committee on Institutional Quality and Integrity (NACIQI).

The San Francisco supervisors have announced unanimous support for all three accreditation reform bills: Read their resolution in support of ABs 1397, 1385, and 404

In introducing the resolution, Supervisor Eric Mar explained that “this is about supporting our community college in San Francisco but also others, so that they don’t have to go through the scrutiny and the lack of fairness that our City College has gone through.”
