At last night’s Board meeting, Chancellor Fisher announced that someone leaked the upcoming accreditation report to the press and that we should expect an article about it in Saturday morning’s SF Chronicle.
The report, which won’t be officially public till Monday, had already been given to “leaders of the college,” including the members of the Board and top administrators. All indications are that the college will be taken to task for various problems — at the top of the list will be financial responsibility — and given tight timelines to fix the issues.
Exactly why a college leader would want to leak the report to the press is unclear. But on a night when the Board approved a budget that cuts 700 classes, and as the college prepares to ask San Francisco to support a parcel tax, the leak was not good news.
