After months of advocacy, your strong voice has been heard!

Yesterday, the Legislature unanimously passed Assembly Bill 288 (Holden), the College & Career Access Pathways (CCAP) Act. AB 288 is the vehicle for long overdue reforms to California’s dual/concurrent enrollment laws. This has been a high priority for our system, the League, and the Board of Governors.

Thank you for your letters, feedback, and support. Together, we have demonstrated that dual/concurrent enrollment is critical to ensuring that all students have early access to college and career opportunities.  Now, let's make sure that AB 288 is signed by Governor Brown!

Here's how you can continue to make a difference:

  • Submit a letter requesting Governor Brown’s signature.
  • Encourage your school districts’ superintendents and boards, chambers of commerce, parent groups, or other community based organizations to submit a letter.
  • Learn more about concurrent enrollment at the League’s Annual Convention, November 19-21, 2015.
  • Submit articles about your dual/concurrent enrollment programs to your local newspaper or college’s newsletter.

We encourage you and your partner organizations to send letters to Governor Brown by September 21, 2015. For more information about submitting a letter, please contact our Legislative Advocate Lizette Navarette (lizette@ccleague.org).

Thank you again for your engagement in our advocacy effort to pass the CCAP Act!
