PCC gets probation advice

TUCSON, AZ (Tucson News Now) -

Today's meeting at the Pima Community College District Board is what they are calling the start of the process to get off probation.

The college was put on probation back in April after a review by the Higher Learning Commission in January.

Right now, Dr. Karen Solomon from the HLC is addressing the PCC board. She is advising them on ways the college get off probation and stay off.

Solomon and another advisor have also met with faculty members and employees over the last two days.

The community college has less than two years to prove to the HLC that they can comply with their criteria for accreditation.

The process will be monitored by the HLC. In fact, the college has an August 1 deadline to send a report showing they are on track.

Here's an idea of of what PCC is going through: you get a 200 dollar ticket for speeding. You have to pay the fine, but if you go to traffic school, the points can be taken off of your license.

This is the first of many days at traffic school for PCC.

    “While this appears to be a crime of opportunity, it’s still poaching and theft of wildlife from the citizens of Arizona,” said Regional Supervisor Raul Vega of Game and Fish in Tucson, in a recent news release.  “It’s especially cruel, given that the javelina was pregnant.”
