The ACCJC is once again going before NACIQI, a committee of the USDE in a fight for their survival.
This is our opportunity to FINALLY put this rogue agency out of business!
PUBLIC COMMENT TO DELIST ACCJC IS OPEN – Deadline is November 14, 2016
In a very bizarre development, the hearing of ACCJC before the US Department of Education (USDE) on the issue of their reauthorization has been rescheduled from December 2016 to February 2017.
This is very unusual and we can only speculate as to the reasons. It is noteworthy that the decision of ACCJC on CCSF’s Restoration Status will be known by that date.
In the meantime, the public comment period has opened! Please submit your written comment by the deadline of November 14, 2016.
And please consider joining our delegation that will fly out to Washington, D.C. in February 2017 to submit oral comment. Our delegations that went in December 2013 and December 2015 were influential in the ACCJC currently being on the harshest status short of de-authorized. If you are interested please contact Wynd Kaufmyn

The Brief Story:
The ACCJC gets its authority from the US Department of Education (DOE). Many of you are aware that, spurred by the CFT complaint filed in April 2013, the DOE issued a letter to the ACCJC identifying 15 federal regulations with which the ACCJC was out of compliance. They were given a year to come into compliance, essentially putting them on their own “show cause.”
The ACCJC will come before a NACIQI (National Advisory Committee on Institutional Quality and Integrity) hearing this December. NACIQI will consider various documents including ACCJC’s report, a staff analysis report, and written third party comments. Oral third party comments will be allowed at the hearing. Then NACIQI will then make a recommendation to the DOE as to whether or not to reauthorize the ACCJC.
