For the past several months, Cuesta College has gathered feedback from the community regarding our ongoing educational challenges and needs. Thank you to those of you who have provided feedback.

We are committed to providing quality, affordable higher education and job training to local students in our community.  However, repairs and upgrades are needed to support vital educational programs, including college transfer courses and career technical education.

Some of the educational needs and priorities that have been identified include:

  • Improving and maintaining nursing and paramedic programs
  • Providing quality career training and preparation in early childhood education, law enforcement, automotive, and agricultural trades
  • Repairing deteriorating buildings and classrooms
  • Providing essential job training in welding, construction, engineering, technology, and architecture
  • Fixing leaking roofs and plumbing, which lead to power outages and canceled classes

To address these needs, the San Luis Obispo County Community College District Board of Trustees is considering placing a local education bond measure on the November 2014 ballot for voters’ consideration. A local bond measure would help Cuesta College maintain quality, affordable education and job training.

If you have any questions, please contact me at gstork@cuesta.edu.

Sincerely,

Dr. Stork Signature

Gilbert H. Stork, Ed. D.
