Dear California Community College Chancellors' Office:

On January 20, 2023, the California Community College (CCC) Distance Education Coordinators' group learned that the Online Network of Educators, known throughout the CCC system as @ONE, would be reorganized at the end of the current fiscal year.

We, as wide range of faculty, staff, and administrators in the CCC system, are asking you to consider the voices of the community and the long term ramifications this decision to restructure will have on students and the services/instruction we provide.

@ONE has trained over 11,000 faculty since it came under the auspices of the California Virtual Campus. (This is not counting the years prior when it was run by a grant through the Mt. San Jacinto College campus.) The @ONE program has remained a constant source of high-quality, professionally-recognized training for online pedagogy, accessibility, and culturally responsive teaching.

With the increase of distance education offerings system-wide, (some campuses are still seeing over 50% of their enrollments in an online mode of instruction), @ONE should expand their services and programs to fill the need for training critical to student equity and success.

It is our hope that the @ONE program remains funded, and that moving forward, there is a plan for development of continual funding/resources to support this critical professional learning service.

Share for Success
