Measure E

Message from the President

The Board of Trustees of the El Camino Community College District voted on July 16 to place Measure E on the November 2012 ballot.

El Camino College has proudly served the South Bay for 65 years, preparing students for the jobs of today and the future. We are proud to be part of our students’ success as they transfer to a university or gain employment in areas including nursing, firefighting and other first-responder and healthcare careers.

The Board recognizes that U.C. and State college systems are becoming so expensive, more students are relying on community colleges. Yet, despite an increasing demand for high-quality, affordable college options, community colleges across California are underfunded – this past year, El Camino College experienced $10 million in cuts from the state budget. More reductions are expected in the future. It is clear that we cannot count on the state to fully fund the needs of El Camino College.

Since El Camino College was established, every effort has been made to offer labs, classrooms and instructional facilities that meet current and future academic needs. As job opportunities in high-tech and “green” technology industries expand, we continue to offer the training and resources needed to be competitive in these professions.

The Board also acknowledged that due to the growing number of returning military personnel, as well as active military, the upgrade of support services facilities is a high priority of the District.

In these challenging economic times, students need quality academics and job training more than ever. In order to provide the exceptional education our students need, we are asking our community for assistance. Please read on to learn more about how you can help shape the future of El Camino College.
