When COVID-19 hit, the team at State Center Community College District stepped up to assist our students. I’m proud of the following actions that were taken to keep our students on track to finish their educational journeys. 

  • Transitioned 68,000 students and 3,000 instructors and staff on-line to reduce the rate of infection.
  • Over 500 laptops, IPads, and Wi-Fi hotspots were provided to students in order to finish the semester.
  • Provided our local hospitals with gloves, masks, face shields, ventilators, gowns, goggles, shoe covers, and safety glasses.
  • Kept campus food pantries, counseling services, veterans services, admissions and records, financial aid accessible to students.
  • Our Foundation created the COVID-19 Emergency Aid for Students Fund which will provide relief for students facing a financial crisis, including food or housing insecurity, or other unexpected financial emergencies resulting from the COVID-19 pandemic.

Our community colleges are the backbone of our economy. For our economy to be successful post-pandemic, we must ensure our students continue to be successful. Please do not hesitate to get in touch today with any questions or concerns. 

Here to serve you,

Annalisa Perea

Fresno City College Police Academy Task Force

Fresno City College (FCC) has created a police academy task force that will recommend a set of actions that expand implicit and explicit racial bias awareness and understanding of community policing efforts for the college to add to the program.

An Underpass Coming to Blackstone & McKinley Avenues

Funding was recently approved to begin design work of a railroad underpass at Blackstone and McKinley. The roadway improvement will provide congestion relief, improve air quality, and increase pedestrian and vehicle safety for the area. An average of 37 trains a day cross the tracks in this area. Construction is expected to begin at the end of 2022 and be completed by 2025.

Now more than ever, it’s critical that we respect and show kindness to one another. At a recent meeting, our Board unanimously passed a Resolution Denouncing Xenophobia and Anti-Asian Sentiment Arising Due to Fears of the COVID-19 Pandemic and Affirming SCCCD’s Commitment to the Well-Being and Safety of Asian American Communities.
