PLATFORM/PRIORITY ISSUES

New Leadership Delivering Results for Our Community
Trustee Jones has supported building partnerships with local and statewide entities to ensure that Compton College flourishes and promotes academic achievement.  These partnerships have improved college access for students from Compton Unified School District and Lynwood Unified School District, and resulted in the Compton Promise and Lynwood Promise –  a promise of free college tuition for high school graduates within the Compton Community College District.  An articulation agreement with Charles Drew University also encourages Compton College nursing graduates to continue to pursue a four-year degree.
 
Trustee Jones has focused on deepening student support services to increase enrollment and support program completion and/or graduation.  During her tenure, Trustee Jones has a record of advocating and supporting services for homeless students, financial literacy and student engagement.   If elected in November 2018, Trustee Jones will address the following issues:
