Glendale College Trustees to Unveil Revamping Plan

The Glendale Community College Board of Trustees will disclose the details of a plan to reorganize duties of some deans and vice presidents at an April 9 hearing, school officials announced this week.

The shake-up has been contemplated since 1981 when the college split from the Glendale Unified School District to form its own district, said Phillip Kazanjian, president of the Board of Trustees. He said the board has wanted to change the management structure since the split but has held off to allow trustees to “fully understand the workings of the school.”

Under the proposed plan, some positions would be abolished and replaced with new posts that would include different duties, Kazanjian said. He said the board is not likely to reach a decision on the reorganization at that meeting.

He would not specify which positions would be affected.


The hearing, which will be in the Campus Center building at 4:30 p.m., was scheduled in part to dispel rumors about who would be affected by the reorganization and what the job descriptions would be for the new positions, trustee Robert Holmes said.

“It’s not really a big deal,” Holmes said. He said about 12 positions would be affected. “Nobody is going to be fired,” he said. “They may be sent next door or down the hall but not out into the street.”
