City College Of SF To Lay Off Dozens Of Employees

SAN FRANCISCO (CBS/AP) – The City College of San Francisco plans to lay off dozens of employees and reduce salaries as it fights to keep its accreditation and stay open.

School officials say City College will lay off 34 full-time clerical workers, 20 to 30 part-time instructors and 18 part-time counselors starting in January.

College trustees have also approved a 4.4 percent salary cut for non-union employees, including most administrators, and they are seeking the same cut for faculty members.

The community college also needs an additional 3,000 full- and part-time students to register for the spring semester to avoid losing $6.5 million in state funding.

City College is under pressure to reduce costs to retain its accreditation from the regional Accreditation Commission for Community and Junior Colleges.
