U.S. DOE sends notice to ACCJC

August 13, 2013—Today the U.S. Department of Education sent notice to the ACCJC that three elements of the CFT's complaint needed to be addressed or the accrediting agency's reauthorization will be in jeopardy.  The three elements included a conflict of interest by ACCJC president Barbara Beno in appointing her husband to the CCSF site visit team in 2012; failure to appoint accreditation review teams that were balanced between administrative and faculty appointments; and failure to distinguish clearly between "recommendations" and "deficiencies" that CCSF needed to address after its accreditation was reaffirmed in 2006.  Click here to view the DOE's letter to Beno.
