Hammonds, the Page campus representative, will relay all messages to the CCC Governing Board at the meeting Tuesday night. Hammonds served a the Page campus dean for 14 years.

After the residents of Coconino County voted down the property tax increase to help boost revenues for Coconino Community College, the college needs to cut costs. The CCC District Governing Board is considering all cost-saving measures, including closing the Page campus. The board convenes this coming Tuesday to consider the options.

According to Coconino Community College President, Dr. Leah Bornstein, the college’s governing board is scheduled to consider all options as far as where to further trim the budget, and Bornstein stresses the ALL part of her statement.

She said “all areas are being analyzed, every program, every campus is under scrutiny” as board members look for possible areas of savings. Unfortunately, at this point, savings means more cuts and Bornstein says the board has some very tough decisions to make when they consider options on Tuesday night.

Higher Education in Page

For Page residents, the community college is the only local higher education option available. High school graduates can take classes and earn credits toward a 4-year degree without leaving home. It is the least expensive way to earn college credits in Page. Without the community college, students who want to attend classes would need to do so over 100 miles away.

Meeting Televised Live in Page

Tuesday’s board meeting will be televised at the Page Coconino Community College on Tuesday February 25th beginning at 5:00 P.M. in Room D-10. This televised event is open to the general public.
