Governor approves bill increasing transparency for California community college accreditation

Friday, September 19, 2014

Gov. Jerry Brown has signed into law a bill unanimously supported by both the Senate and Assembly that seeks to make the accreditation system for California's 112 community colleges more transparent.

On Wednesday, Brown signed Assembly Bill 1942, which will require an accrediting agency to report accreditation decisions to the Legislature, such as last summer's vote by the Accrediting Commission for Community and Junior Colleges to revoke City College of San Francisco's accreditation.
