Governor signs historic community college reform bill

Submitted By Michelle Siqueiros, Campaign for College Opportunity

Governor Jerry Brown recently signed into law SB 1456 (Lowenthal) - the Seymour-Campbell Student Success Act of 2012. Under the bill, ALL students will receive the guidance they need to be successful through required orientation and education plans. In a historic move toward equity, colleges will be required to publicly report progress of all students broken down by race and socio-economic status. And, finally, students will have to maintain satisfactory academic performance in order to be eligible for fee waivers.

A focus on improving student success - measured by gaining a degree, certificate or transfer to a four-year institution - will open the doors of community colleges to thousands more students and send more graduates into the work force or on to higher degrees.
