Chancellor's Column: SBCCD provides guidance, support to DREAM Act students

SAN BERNARDINO SUN

“Undocumented students” are students who came to the United States as youngsters and who have lived here but who are not citizens. In many cases, even though they identify as American, their lack of residency interferes with their ability to move their lives forward.

We often hear these students referred to as “Dreamers” — a reference to the federal DREAM Act, or Development, Relief and Education for Alien Minors Act, first proposed in Congress in 2001 and subsequently reintroduced in various versions, but which has never passed. The California DREAM Act provides the process for Assembly Bill 540 students to apply for financial aid. The term has a clear double meaning about these young people who have hopes, dreams and aspirations for their future.

In California, AB540, was passed in 2001 and then expanded in 2014 and made it legal for undocumented students to pay in-state tuition in the three branches of higher education in the State — the California Community Colleges, the California State University, and University of California — provided they meet certain requirements. Previous to the passage of AB540, an undocumented student trying to attend college would have had to pay non-resident (out-of-state) tuition because they were not considered residents. Out-of-state tuition, currently $257 per unit, is substantially higher than the $46 per unit paid by in-state residents. AB540 students also may qualify for Board of Governors Fee Waivers, Cal Grants and additional financial assistance from the California Community College Chancellor’s Office.

To meet the requirements of AB540 and qualify for non-resident tuition, the student must “attend a high school for 3 or more complete academic years (grades 9 to 12, not necessarily consecutive); graduate from a California high school/GED, receive a passing grade in the California High School Proficiency Exam, be currently enrolled in an accredited institution of public higher education in California, file an affidavit stating that he / she will apply for legal residency as soon as possible, and not have a valid non-immigrant visa.”

As complicated as this might sound, both the colleges in the San Bernardino Community College District, San Bernardino Valley College and Crafton Hills College, are available to help potential students see if they can qualify for admission as AB540 students. Completion of the AB540 affidavit verifies that the student meets the requirements and certifies the intent of the student to establish legal residency in California. Students must provide information and transcripts and the affidavit must be completed prior to admission to the college.

SBVC is believed to be the only community college in the state with a Dreamer’s Resource Center, overseen by Johnny Conley, the interim director of the SBVC First Year Experience program. The DRC’s purpose is “to improve student success and help to successfully transition AB 540 students into college. The center provides academic advising, counseling, referrals to student services programs and peer-to-peer advising in a welcoming environment where Dreamers can connect with campus and community resources.”

Information on qualifying as an AB540 student is available on the SBVC website: ValleyCollege.edu.

CHC does not have a Center, but provides services through Financial Aid and Student Life offices. Ericka Paddock, director of Student Life, provides information in both English and Spanish at orientations regarding the admission of undocumented college students. In addition, she clarifies that the immigration status of students and their parents is protected information at the colleges. The Financial Aid office, under Director John Muskavitch, offers regular workshops from October through March on filling out the necessary paperwork to qualify for financial assistance, which can be substantial.

It can be challenging to verify the status of potential students in order to provide them with the assistance necessary to attend college. Their families are often fearful so the number of eligible students is not certain. However, at least 350 AB540 students attended our colleges in 2015-16.

For students willing to meet with a counselor, the benefits can be considerable. Education is the most direct path to a better future, and community colleges are a great place to start. For students who are eligible, AB540 presents a tremendous opportunity. But for those who are not eligible under this law, other assistance may be available. Stop by either college and ask for guidance — we are here to help.

MCHS at SBVC Receives Top State wide Ranking

Publish Date : 8/25/2016 at 5:01 PM

SAN BERNARDINO:  The Middle College High School (MCHS), a partnership between San Bernardino Valley College (SBVC) and the San Bernardino City Unified School District (SBCUSD), has been ranked #11 of 2033 California public high schools using the California Assessment of Student Performance and Progress (CAASPP) test results for 2016, according to SchoolDigger.com, a site which compiles detailed profiles of over 136,000 public schools in all 50 states across the country.

Board of Trustees President John Longville said, “The rating site also noted that in 2016, MCHS ranked better than 99.5% of high schools in California and is first among the 11 ranked high schools in the SBCUSD. In just over a decade, MCHS has gone from 285th in the state to 11th. Those are incredibly impressive results for MCHS and we are understandably proud of the school. The students deserve the five gold stars the school was awarded. The students enrolled in that program have been incredibly successful, achieving higher completion rates in college courses than traditional college-age students.”

Chancellor Bruce Baron said, “I am so pleased to congratulate James Espinoza, principal of MCHS, for his wonderful work with the MCHS. SBVC’s administration and counselors are dedicated to the success of MCHS students. Interim Vice President of Instruction Henry Hua and Dr. Ricky Shabazz, Vice President of Student Services, oversee the school from the college’s vantage. They work closely with April Carter, Director of Admissions and Records, and two counselors, Kimberly Wingson and Susan Gasca. Guiding minors through their high school years while they are also attending college is a different set of challenges than working with adult students, and they all recognize both the responsibilities and the opportunities for success MCHS offers these young people.

“MCHS is very diverse, reflecting the demographics of our community. The student body is 72% Hispanic, more than 9% African American and just over 13% Caucasian. More than 88% of the students are from families that qualify for free or reduced lunches. 90% are or will be first in their family to attend college. These students have been provided with a quality educational opportunity and they have succeeded, regardless of their economic backgrounds,” noted the Chancellor.

Chancellor's Column: Campus safety always at forefront for SBCCD

Publish Date : 8/18/2016 at 9:32 AM

POSTED: 08/17/16, 5:56 PM PDT | SAN BERNARDINO SUN

September is National Campus Safety Awareness Month, when educators stress the importance of the safety of the campus community and increasing awareness of those issues related to ensuring the safety of our schools.

Our very dedicated district Police Department serves a vital role in the day-to-day peaceful administration of the San Bernardino Community College District, which, with multiple sites and more than 1,600 employees and more than 40,000 students year-round, is the equivalent of a small city.

National Campus Safety Awareness Month, created in 2008, focuses on advocacy, education and training, and supporting policy initiatives and legislation that address issues related to the frightening realities colleges and universities face, including such destructive behaviors and violence as high risk drinking, illegal drug use, prescription drug abuse, sexual assault, stalking, relationship violence, hazing, hate crimes, and fire safety.

The SBCCD is committed to the Police Department’s mission, “to provide a safe and secure learning and working environment for all students and employees … through a cooperative and coordinated effort involving all departments and the college employees, law enforcement agencies and the community.”

To that end, they have full law enforcement powers of arrest, meet or exceed training requirements mandated by the California Commission on Peace Officers Standards and Training, and have entered into reciprocal agreements with all the local law enforcement agencies in our service area. The department operates 24 hours a day, seven days a week, under Chief of Police Pierre Galvez, with seven officers, 11 campus security officers, a dispatcher and an administrative secretary.

Recognized this year in the Campus Climate Survey as one of the most helpful and professional of the district, the SBCCD Police Department has numerous responsibilities, including complying with the annual federal government’s Clery Act/Annual Security Report (Clery Report) requirement, so-named after a young woman murdered in a campus dorm.

Since 1990, colleges and universities must publish an annual report detailing security policies, and three years of campus crime statistics for certain offenses. Educational institutions with police or security agencies like ours must keep a public crime log, and alert students and staff of timely warnings for crimes that pose an ongoing threat. The Clery Report is available on or before Oct. 1 each year online on the district homepage (sbccd.org) and police web pages, and in hard copy through the Police Department’s offices at San Bernardino Valley College and Crafton Hills College. Copies are also distributed throughout the district’s sites.

A review of the SBCCD’s Clery Report crime statistics indicates an annual decrease in crimes both on and off-sites, the most common ones reported being vehicle theft, burglary, drug and alcohol violations, and sexual and domestic violence, a result of and in tribute to ongoing policies of open communication, access to officers, and provision of information, educational activities and partnerships with other organizations and agencies that can provide support in times of crisis.

For instance, sexual and domestic violence issues, including child sexual abuse, are of grave concern to our officers, as such crimes cross all ages, genders, races, ethnicities and economic backgrounds, and survivors often do not come forward willingly. Because of the serious nature of these matters, our Board of Trustees has a no-tolerance Sexual Assault Policy requiring our Police Department to “investigate all allegations of sexual assault and take appropriate disciplinary, criminal, or legal action” and clearly setting forth the guaranteed actions included in that directive, with the aim of creating a safe harbor for those who have been subject to such violence.

In the hopes of preventing such assaults and assisting those who might want additional information, the department’s website provides brochures, videos, acquaintance and date rape prevention suggestions and a student packet of steps to take regarding Sexual Assault, Domestic Violence, Dating Violence and Stalking. In addition, officers in the department provide on-campus trainings, both regularly scheduled and upon request. They also support survivors reporting crimes, documenting the crimes, protecting themselves and vulnerable family members, and working with the San Bernardino Sexual Assault Services or Yucaipa Outreach. All relevant information is available to the public as well on http://www.sbccd.org/District_Police/Sexual_Assault or through Chief Galvez at 909-384-4491.

The SBCCD Police Department has grave responsibility for the lives and property of the students, faculty, staff, administrators and visitors to our sites. We are proud of the job they do.

They help make our district a wonderful place to work and to get an education.

Bruce Baron is chancellor of San Bernardino Community College District.

It’s almost fall and classes start at San Bernardino Valley College (SBVC) and Crafton Hills College (CHC) on August 16, so it is time to apply for admission, register for classes, apply for financial aid and go through orientation. There are still seats available in many classes.

Board of Trustees President John Longville said, “Community colleges are available to assist whether a student wants to complete their first two years of college for an associate degree, transfer to a four-year college or to get job training for a new career, career advancement or a career change. Both SBVC and CHC are fully accredited by the Western Association of Schools and Colleges, the accrediting body for California and the Western Pacific.”

Chancellor Bruce Baron said, “We are looking forward to the start of the Fall 2016 semester. In addition to having expanded both our on-ground and on-line schedules, we are offering several new course, programs and services to help support students.  But, I would remind everyone- classes fill up fast, so don’t delay. Go online and register as soon as possible.”
