On Saturday: Help make City College FREE!

Join the voter outreach for Sandy Lee Fewer and Prop W in D1

AFT 2121 has endorsed Sandra Lee Fewer, a City College alumna and current member of the Board of Education. We need to ensure that we replace one CCSF champion, Eric Mar (who is termed out), with another— and Sandy is that person! She is dedicated to our city and our college and we believe she is the best choice for District 1 and the Board of Supervisors. Please, learn more about Sandy and her campaign and join us this Saturdaymorning when we canvass with Sandy and for Prop W (our transfer tax to make CCSF free again for San Franciscans), Prop 55, and our Board candidates, Shanell Williams and Tom Temprano. Sandy’s CCSF story is pretty amazing, in fact, and we hope you’ll join us to hear it.

Beno retiring in June 2017: ACCJC needs to go NOW

Barbara Beno’s retirement is a symbolic step forward. But the problem with the ACCJC goes beyond one person.  We agree with the recent letter by Congresswomen Nancy Pelosi, Jackie Speier and Anna Eshoo that the ACCJC no longer deserves to be recognized by the US Department of Education as a valid accreditor.

Sign the petition to the Department of Education urging them to de-list the ACCJC!

If the commission had been doing its job Barbara Beno would have been gone long ago. We’re concerned that the timeline of Beno’s retirement may put CCSF at risk. The ACCJC will be deciding the fate of the college in January 2017. As has now been demonstrated in so many ways, California Community Colleges need a new, responsible accreditor, not merely a staffing change.

New District email policy: Fall 2016

Administration has changed their email policy. They will no longer send work-related messages to personal email addresses or to CCSF Gmail accounts. They will send only to ccsf.edu email accounts. If you don’t check your ccsf.edu email, you could miss important information you need to do your job and will not meet your obligations. In addition, we are now required to provide theccsf.edu email address to our students. Read more…
