Letter to California Asm. Higher Education Committees Regarding SB 802 and Reauthorization of the Bureau for Private Postsecondary Education

The California Bureau for Private Postsecondary Education is undergoing a sunset review process this year, and the bill to reauthorize the agency – SB 802 – will be heard in the Assembly Higher Education Committee on Tuesday June 29. TICAS and partners submitted comments including recommendations to empower the Bureau to be more proactive in preventing student harm, allow the Bureau to create and enforce stronger minimum operating standards for schools, provide more discretion on school approvals, support better data collection, and to expand the Bureau’s capacity to respond in the event of a school closure.
