AB 705 Campaign 2018
SMAC's goal for this year is to ensure that AB 705 is worked into CCSF’s policy and curriculum by Fall of 2018. AB705 is a law that was recently passed this year in California, which demands that community colleges place students in math and english classes using multiple measures, which allows counselors to review past school records and GPAs and placing students into the highest class possible. AB 705 also stipulates that no student can be denied entry into a college level class. Implementation of AB 705 is important for students because they are often held back by the placement test, becoming stuck in sequences that statistically ensure failure to transfer to higher institutions.
