SCFT Vote of No Confidence in the State Chancellor

On May 6, 2019, the State Center Federation of Teachers, AFT Local 1533,

passed a resolution of censure against California Community College Chancellor Eloy Ortiz Oakley for failure to engage in collegial consultation with faculty stakeholder groups.








Citing a lack of transparency and failure to engage in collegial consultation with faculty stakeholder groups, the CFT approved a vote of no confidence in State Chancellor Eloy Oakley. Faculty leaders cited two reasons:


1. His establishment of a statewide online college, which competes with many of the online programs of California’s community colleges


2. The adoption of a new community college funding model, known as the Student Centered Funding Formula (SCFF), passed by the state legislature in 2018 as part of state budget negotiations


The new funding formula allocates about half of the dollars allocated to be split between providing districts with additional support for low-income students and rewarding districts based on the number of degrees and certificates they award.
