Learning Assistance Colleagues,

If you are not aware, Assembly Bill 1935 and Senate Bill 1009 are currently being considered in California. These bills would amend Section 84757 of the Education Code and allow California Community Colleges to collect apportionment for degree-applicable and transfer-level courses. It would also allow students to self-refer for tutoring.

The Association of Colleges for Tutoring and Learning Assistance (ACTLA) fully supports these bills. The ACTLA Executive Board has sent letters of support to assembly members and will continue to advocate for these changes that directly impact the success of California Community College students.

Attached, please find the ACTLA letter of support, fact sheet, and the proposed changes to AB 1935.

Additionally, here are the most updated links to information:
