The passage of Proposition 30 allowed us to add 115 classes back into
the spring schedule and restore sorely needed access to our students.
In addition, with the passage of Prop 30, there is a strong likelihood
that we will have a significant Summer 2013 intersession.
With that said, other than the year round allied health programs,
we will not be offering a Winter 2013
Many thanks goes to the Enrollment Management Committee,
Department Chairs, many other faculty, staff, and administrators who
have worked so diligently and faithfully over the Fall 2012 term.
We have ridden the waves of highs and lows in trying to deal with
the enrollment management challenges depending on whether Prop 30
did not pass (Plan A—worst case) or did pass (Plan B—best
At the same time we were dealing with Prop 30, we also faced the challenge
of dealing with the lowest section size in the district with one of
the highest instructional hourly budgets. We believe, pulling together,
we have addressed this issue and hope to see significant improvement
in the upcoming Spring term.
Finally, I want to remind you of the college wide Town Hall Meeting
to be held in the Camino Theatre from 12:15 pm to 1:15 pm this coming
Monday, November 19th. This session is an effort to communicate transparently
with all of you and to discuss the events of this semester in regards
to enrollment management, budget challenges, and what it means to
the college and students now that Prop 30 has passed. There will also
be time for questions and answers.
Thank you again for the time and hard work that you put into this
college and the lives of Los Angeles City College’s students!
