Other motion.
Brad Chapin
46:02
what was the motion?
Susan Englander
46:07
Major points:• Condemn the layoffs and cuts as the only solution to rebuild and renew CCSF; restore the jobs of 160 and the cut of 50% of the classes from the Fall 2021 schedule,• Demand that CARES and HEERA federal COVID relief funding be used appropriately as well as all other public and private funding offered, to prevent lay-offs and class cuts,• Restart sending the full CCSF Schedule for each semester to each SF household via email, text, and/or hard copy. CCSF administration cut this vital outreach from its budget. Its current online schedule is neither accessible nor efficient in searching for classes. Building the student body generates more state funding!• Fix the broken registration and enrollment technology that has frustrated and discouraged potential students for years,• Keep CCSF a Communty College!!
