SAN FRANCISCO (AP) – The fight over accreditation for one of California’s largest community colleges is heading to court for trial.
A judge will begin hearing arguments on Monday over the Accrediting Commission for Community and Junior Colleges’ decision to revoke City College of San Francisco’s accreditation. Losing accreditation would likely force the school, which serves about 80,000 students, to close since unaccredited schools are ineligible for state and federal funding.
According to the San Francisco Chronicle, the commission says it had warned the college of concerns about its financial management and governance, and the school failed to fix the problems.
San Francisco City Attorney Dennis Herrera counters that the commission’s evaluation of the college in 2012 and 2013 broke state and federal law.
