Mis 3 prioridades principales

  • Create a common sense budget. I will cut spending on high-priced consultants and bloated salaries for middle management, and invest the savings to prevent necessary classes from being cut and provide a living wage to our workers and faculty.
  • Get San Francisco students into City College. I will focus on rebuilding the relationship between San Francisco Unified School District and City College to build an enrollment bridge for students.
  • Restore Confidence in City College. I will use my experience to create a vigorous community outreach campaign to undo the damage the accreditation crisis has done to student enrollment.

Preguntas y Respuestas

Preguntas de League of Women Voters of California Education Fund and California Counts, a public media collaboration. (2)

Many people believe that the City College of San Francisco has been damaged by years of controversy. How will you repair that damage?
Respuesta de Tom Temprano:

The first, and simplest thing that we must do is address our enrollment crisis and fight back against plans to cut 26% of our classes. The last thing that we should be doing at a time when we need increased enrollment is cutting the classes that our students want and need. Rebuilding City College’s relationship with SFUSD will be one of my biggest priorities as Trustee, and it is critical to solving our enrollment crisis. It is unacceptable that each year 1,000 SFUSD graduates do not go on to a 4-year or Community College. City College should be present on SFUSD campuses, enrolling students before they graduate and looking for new opportunities to encourage concurrent enrollment. Additionally, City College needs to be proactively engaging our city workers to enroll them in ongoing education and training at City College. The Board of Trustees also needs to lead a real grassroots marketing effort to let San Francisco know that our school is accredited and open for business. CCSF faculty and students have done an incredible job engaging the community to get our enrollment back and its time for the Trustees to join the effort.  As Trustee I would use my background in marketing and connections to the community to actively engage city agencies, non-profits and community groups to build the sort of deeper relationships necessary to restore our enrollment.

What specific ideas do you have to improve the financial health of our community colleges?
