City College of San Francisco officials are holding a series of community meetings to discuss ways to eliminate the achievement gaps that were identified in a report released last year.
The goal of the hearings, scheduled for Feb. 9-11, is to explore the challenges and then form recommendations that will close the gaps. The hearings will focus on improving access to financial aid and student employment opportunities as well as finding ways to improve retention programs to better serve minority students.
“The student achievement gap is a reality at City College, and a college-wide commitment must be engaged aggressively to improve student success,” said Don Q. Griffin, chancellor of City College. “During a time of shrinking resources, we must focus on finding creative and innovative ways to address this issue.”
