Message sent on behalf of Chancellors Cindy Miles and Constance Carroll
June 9, 2014
Dear Drs. Amador and Beno:
We want you to be aware of an effort that is underway among the CEOs of California’s community colleges to advise ACCJC as to actions we hope to see regarding City College of San Francisco. Because this is an urgent matter, we are sending you our statement today with the initial 35 signatories received today, and we ask you to share it with the Commissioners.  We will send you a final letter on June 16, which will include the same statement, as well as the final list of signatories.
We the undersigned Chancellors, Superintendent/Presidents, and Presidents of California’s community colleges urge the Accrediting Commission for Community and Junior Colleges to provide an extension of 12 to 18 months for City College of San Francisco to complete the enormous progress it has been making under its current leadership to comply with all standards of accreditation and to maintain its accredited status during this period.  We urge the Commission to either follow its current policy or create a revised policy to enable this extension, perhaps calling a special meeting of the Commission for this purpose.  We believe that this action is in the best interests of the 80,000 students of City College of San Francisco, the City and County of San Francisco, the California Community Colleges, and the State of California.    
Thank you for your consideration.  We urge you to act on this recommendation.
Sincerely,
Dr. Cindy Miles
