Petition: Stop downsizing CCSF! | AFT files class cancellation grievance

On Monday, AFT 2121 President Tim Killikelly sent a letter to the CCSF Board of Trustees and Chancellor Susan Lamb demanding administration rescind this harmful class cancellation policy.

Sign the petition telling CCSF Admin to rebuild our college and stop the cuts!

At yesterday’s Board meeting, Chancellor Lamb responded to the faculty and student public comments in opposition to this plan by claiming that the information shared with us about these planned course cancellations is “inaccurate,” and that low-enrolled classes will not be purged from the schedule on August 3. Instead, “conversations” will begin on the 3rd in consultation with Chairs about whether the course should be cut, or allowed to stay on the schedule and given a chance to grow enrollment. We intend to hold the Chancellor to these comments.

In addition, AFT 2121 has officially filed a formal grievance signed by 94 faculty members over class cancellation policies. Premature closures needlessly deny student access to CCSF and cause employment and income loss to faculty. If the District is really committed to rebuilding enrollment, then cutting the college makes no sense. Chancellor Lamb and the Board of Trustees: stop the downsizing, support student access to education!

What’s next?

We hope that Administration will work with us to pass the Free City College initiative which will help us boost enrollment and bring thousands of San Franciscans back to their education at City College. And we urge Administration to focus on rebuilding and growing programs, doing targeted outreach to prospective students, recruiting faculty to coordinate these efforts, and offering alternative assignments to faculty who’ve had their classes cut.

Now is the time to stabilize and grow our classes. Administration needs to work with faculty to immediately find ways to boost enrollment. The alternative — a dramatically reduced college — is not an option.
