The District Attorney’s trial continues with the Accrediting Commission for Community and Junior Colleges, with final arguments being heard on Dec. 9.

ACCJC has an upcoming site visit to City College to decide if the school will go on restoration status, meaning that the school will have a two year extension but with more stringent guidelines.

In order for the school to stay open, the ACCJC have to find them in complete compliance, without any margin for error. If the school is not approved for restoration status in January 2015, the school will be closed without the possibility of appeal.

“The rules are bizarre; it’s sort of like a rabbit hole,” Timothy Killikelly, president of the City College Faculty Union, said. “We’re concerned at the lack of due process.”

Many critiques of ACCJC came to light during the trial that began Oct. 27, the district attorney cited issues with wording that the commission used.

“The lack of clarity on the words becomes important because you’re judging the school on actions the school takes based on the words you use,” Ron Flynn an attorney in the trial said, “The language that CCSF uses is sometimes vague, maybe intentionally vague. ‘Recommendation’ could mean a number of things but it’s not clear on paper. It could mean you’re out of compliance or you’re in compliance but could do better.”

In the meantime, City College remains in limbo and the upcoming months will determine the school’s future.
