3. Nadia Scholnick Memorial - October 8

With great sadness and grief, the ESL Department shares the news of the loss of our dear friend and colleague Nadia Scholnick. Nadia was our Noncredit Assessment Resource Instructor for many years and organized several large ESL testing programs. She also taught both noncredit and credit ESL, most recently ESL 79 Advanced Speaking and Pronunciation. She was very much loved by students and faculty alike.

Nadia passed early Friday morning as the sun rose red above the Bay. She was blessed with a wonderful circle of care-givers and many people who loved her.

Let's remember Nadia with a smile - for her boundless energy, her brilliant intelligence, her snazzy sense of graphic style, and most of all for her quick wit and ability to make us laugh even while administering massive numbers of tests.

Her memorial will be held:
Sunday October 8th
11am - 1pm
MUB 140
Ocean Campus

5. Guided Pathways Self-Assessment Workshops

The 2017-18 California State Budget has provided $150 million in one-time grants to seed the expansion of the Guided Pathways framework across the California Community Colleges over the next five years. These funds will complement and augment existing financial support provided by various statewide initiatives such as the Student Success and Support Programs (SSSP), Student Equity Planning, the Basic Skills Initiative, and the Strong Workforce Program. 

Participating colleges will integrate recent state investments and redesign academic pathways in ways that promote better course-taking decisions, minimize achievement gaps, and increase the number of students who earn a certificate or degree.

To apply for these funds, our first step as a college is to complete a college-wide self-assessment of the implementation and scale of evidence-based practices proven to close achievement gaps and increase completion of educational goals.

The Career and Transfer Pathways Committee will hold 3 workshops to engage a broad group of faculty, staff, students, and administrators in this self-evaluation. We ask that you attend only 1 of the 3 workshops to allow for the maximum number of people in the CCSF community to participate.
