A Statement from Chancellor Laguerre

13 September 2017

 

The Oakland Athletics delivered a letter addressed to me shortly before tonight’s Board meeting. We want our community to be fully aware of the content of the letter, therefore I am making the letter public tonight.
I want to make clear the following: No decision, no commitments, and no deals have been made.  
 
The Governing Board will likely discuss this item when it reconvenes in October. I will be recommending that the Board rely on the Peralta Community College District’s strong participatory governance process, meaning we will invite our stakeholders—faculty, classified staff, students, and administrators—to help examine this issue.
 
The Governing Board will also do its due diligence to work with the community and the colleges to assess the impact on students, faculty, staff, the classroom environment, the community surrounding us, the residents of the area and the city overall. We must work with our community to develop a set of principles to frame our discussions.
 
We continue to value the community that has supported the Peralta Community College District for almost sixty years.
 
 Jowel C. Laguerre, Ph.D
Chancellor
