Vote No on Measure S


When the Wake Center is demolished and the Schott Center is “modernized” and partially demolished by SBCC, what will happen to our city’s adult ed program? Will we lose most of these classes permanently? They are definitely not a priority for SBCC, but they are a priority for this community. The Santa Barbara community raised the funds and put in the labor to transform Wake and Schott from elementary school classrooms to labs equipped for arts and crafts instruction and attracted highly trained instructors for all the diverse classes.

Adult Ed or CLL (Center for Lifelong Learning) classes are a lifeline for many seniors and the many artistic souls who love the arts and crafts classes. From the computer classes, to yoga, to Mind and Supermind, we may lose it all.

SBCC needs more space to accommodate the many students from out of town, but we Santa Barbara county taxpayers have to foot the bill. Is this worth it?

Please vote “no” on Measure S.
