Letter from the President

Mt. SAC serves a vital role in our community providing high quality, affordable college education and job training to local students. More students and families need Mt. SAC because the College offers an affordable alternative to the growing cost of four-year university systems.

On July 24, 2018 the Board of Trustees voted to place Measure X on the November 6, 2018 ballot. If enacted, Measure “X” will further Mt. SAC’s academic mission of high-quality, affordable education that helps local students transfer to 4-year universities.

Mt. SAC takes pride in helping high school students get a jumpstart on earning college credit by taking college courses – and we must expand access to these programs while improving the workforce development facilities so essential for training and preparing students for today’s in-demand jobs and a competitive global economy.

Now, more than ever, school security must be updated to keep students safe. If adopted by voters, Measure “X” will install cameras, lighting, and up-to-date security measures —including improved security and emergency communications systems.

Measure “X” is a $750 million education bond, which would cost approximately 2.5 cents per $100 of assessed – not market – property value. Please read on to learn more about Measure X.
— William Scroggins, Ph.D. President and CEO Mt. San Antonio College
