ok so this is great and dandy however why isn't any of the other items being covered by the press? So many rumors wish the media would cover those. Eliminating most of the CE itself. I understand they say Administration but we are hearing the whole CE, bring in agencies really. Is the work CE staff not worth anything.

Alscook, I do agree I watch the news yes the priorities from the State have been given to the Colleges for these types of programs, this makes me happy. Just wish a budget would show that and match that. However, if you look in the past and compliance. It has been an issue. See previous articles. You can't disagree that Dr Arellano has brought CE back into compliance, unfortunately having to do what she did with elimination of some classes that are not fundable made some people mad and mean. I am just tired of the division of an institution that should be out for the #1 the student regardless of them being in Basic Skills or Older Adult life long learning classes. There has been fighting and negativity to a college that was once one of the top of the list as being one of the best Community Colleges out there, so much negativity to the point of name calling and bashing each other, these are all well educated people too. As for the Accreditation- it is what it is and that what we have ..as shown in the pdf provided by the Independent they found that the Board has overstepped and well you read the letter. Accreditation is all we have and we need to keep it strong, especially for the future of our children. This Board has made it that the school is going to be sanctioned for their misconduct, this is BAD. Its a scary time for all. Being here as long and loving working with students and their goals spending countless hours above an beyond the call of duty I find it difficult because at the end I am nobody but a cost without a face and a life just disposable. I believe we need as you say move on and deal with the real issues in hand.
On Stay of Execution for Continuing Ed Administrators

Sorry to disagree with the last comments. Dr Arellano has been instrumental getting the program of CE back in compliance from the State in the midst of a huge budget cut that was not foreseen years ago. I was in attendance of the board meeting as a citizen on my own time and was angry that it was assumed to have come during "work" and "getting paid". To say classes enhanced are non threatened is a joke. Seriously they have been under the attack from the beginning. Also give me a break about a threat that was given in any meeting of sorts. Seriously Dr Arellano is a professional well educated Lady and to say these things its just lack of respect and its appalling. Yes its because the campus is divided and yes its hard to come and see that what has been happening. Its so sad and embarrassing. What once was an institution of working together to make education possible to everyone has become a lair of secrets and manipulative discussions. I just wish that everyone remembers that the Board is causing issues with Accreditation and we might be in big trouble as a college. This is going to affect your children's future transfers. Seriously...priorities.

my thought was classes were made to learn not to be used as a place to create and sell? Am I wrong? A lab should be created for those who do this and have them pay a fee. A person taking classes over and over to use the equipment for such a small fee it taking the place of someone new who wants to learn. Can a materials fee be charged with the classes that are reported to the state?

Great job Dr Serban!
On SBCC Superintendent/President Named to National Commission

I one hope she stays. She has been a asset to employees especially the worker bees. She has kept her promise of not eliminating full time staff.
What I do see is a bunch of self centered, its all about me, i deserve this or that-bullies at the meetings which include the Board itself. I am disappointed and sick of what has been said out there, as a human! We are in a tough economy people don't you realize! It is what it is! Andrea I hope you stay you have this Tax Payers Vote!
