Trustees ratify summer school agreement

The Glendale Community College trustees on Friday voted unanimously to ratify an agreement that will enable the campus to offer 200 classes during the six-week summer session.

Summer school starts on June 20, with early registration kicking off Monday.

College officials and faculty union representatives negotiated on and off for weeks in an effort to maximize the number of summer school classes offered despite multimillion-dollar budget cuts. Without faculty concessions, the school would have offered no more than 100 summer school classes, officials said.

“We will have 200 classes this summer, and our agreement is clear evidence that all constituencies hold students first,” said board President Anita Gabrielian.
