Your Bond Dollars at Work
On August 10th, the Board of Trustees voted to place Measure CC the Cerritos College Safety, Repair, Career Training Measure on the November 8th ballot. Measure CC is a proposed $425 million education bond, which would cost approximately $25 per $100,000 of assessed – not market – valuation.
With the cost of attending California public universities more than six times that of community colleges, more and more local students and their families are relying on Cerritos College for affordable education. Cerritos College provides affordable training to prepare students to transfer to Cal State, UCs or private universities to complete their bachelor’s degrees.
Cerritos College also allows high school students to get a jumpstart on earning college credit by taking college courses before they even graduate. Measure CC will help Cerritos College to fulfill its vision for providing quality education while saving families money on the first few years of tuition.
Cerritos College is an affordable resource for students seeking a vocational education
that provides the job training, technical knowledge and specialized skills to compete
for good-paying modern careers. Funding generated by Measure CC will allow Cerritos
College to update vocational education programs, such as nursing and other medical
professionals, law enforcement, software programming and engineering, so students
can learn the skills they need to prepare for today’s in-demand jobs and competitive
Measure CC includes fiscal safeguards such as public disclosure of all spending, and annual financial and performance audits. Furthermore, no money from Measure CC will go to administrators’ salaries or pensions, and all money will be spent on Cerritos College and cannot be taken by the county, state, or federal governments.
