The agency that accredits California's two-year colleges says that its review of the process it followed in evaluating City College of San Francisco found no irregularities, rebuffing allegations made last month in a complaint filed last month by several employee unions. The massive complaint filed by the unions made a wide range of charges against the Accrediting Commission for Community and Junior Colleges, including that the review of CCSF by the two-year arm of the Western Association of Schools and Colleges was tainted by conflicts of interest and in violation of state and federal laws. The report said the review by the commission's executive committee found the complaint to be "without merit." A spokesman for the California Federation of Teachers called the accreditor's report a "non-response" that was "completely predictable," and said the union was weighing its next steps.
