January 9, 2013 – With only two months left until City College of San Francisco (A1 / 797683EL9) must present a report integral to its survival, officials are worried the college will miss the deadline. College officials are hoping that an accreditation body will grant them extra time to comply with 14 recommendations necessary to keep their accreditation. City College was sanctioned in July by the Accrediting Commission for Community and Junior Colleges. If the college loses accreditation, it will lose federal funding and student aid and could have to close. College officials have made numerous changes since receiving the report, including closing three campuses, adopting a new mission statement and adopting a new administrative structure. The college will lay off dozens of part-time employees, clerical staff and counselors this month to save $6 million a year.
