Dear President Larry Frank,
During the last Academic Senate meeting of Spring 2019, a subcommittee was formed with the charge of providing you a recommendation on the future of LATTC athletics program. We convened our first meeting on Friday, June 14th, 2019 and we formulated a list of clarifying questions for you to respond so that we can make a more informed decision. Thank you again for these responses. A second and final meeting was convened on Friday, June 21st, 2019 where the majority voted on the following recommendation (6 votes for Option #2 and 2 votes for Option #4):
Recommendations (Option #2):

RE: IPS Report and Self-Reporting
Dear Commissioner Kollen:
I just received the final recommendation from our Academic Senate Task Force regarding athletics at LATTC, and the group has recommended pursuing Option #2 as our plan to move forward as a college with our athletics program. Option #2 will reduce our athletics to men's and women's basketball, and with that recommendation, I am officially deciding to suspend all other sports on our campus at this time. Just so you know, this same position in favor of reducing the number of teams and strengthening the systems and supports of our athletics program, has previously been recommended by our Educational Policies Committee (unanimous, with one abstention), our Planning and Budget Committee (unanimous with one abstention) and our College Council.
In addition, we will have a high school-sized soccer field come the Fall of 2020. That is the sport that the largest percentage of our students have requested in our annual survey each year for the past several years. We understand that conference play can take place on a high school-sized soccer field, but that any CCCAA playoff game would need to be played somewhere else. We are looking at the first steps to bring that sport to our campus.
I understand that you have a copy of the Athletics Program Evaluation, Prepared For LA Trade-Technical College by Innovative Performance Solutions, INC. It was sent to you by Dean of Athletics, Ann Hamilton, and reviewed a while back. The principals in that firm are Timi Brown, EdD and Nicola Perry, EdS. Feel free to reach out if you need another copy.
I want to re-confirm that there is no additional self-disclosure or self-reporting required in the near future, and whatever self-reporting is required, will take place this summer. You have also communicated with Dean Anne Hamilton, acting VP Marcy Drummond and myself, and separately with Yvette Wickman, our athletics staff and counselor, about the student educational plans and indicated that you are satisfied that we have all copies of those plans.
Laurence B. Frank
President, Los Angeles Trade-Technical College

KMEX34 reporter Antonio Valverde was on campus yesterday to
cover Trade Tech’s boost in the number of students on this campus, taking
advantage of the LA College Promise. If you recall, Mayor Garcetti and the
LACCD joined in this partnership to allow LAUSD graduates free tuition for one
year (and now two years) at any of the nine LACCD colleges. Trade Tech has been
among the campuses truly embracing the program and is now seeing hundreds of
students involved. KMEX came here to cover that success. A big thank you to our
LACP team and to Sylvia Ibarra for agreeing to represent us on camera. Click on

breakfast in the South Tent. We welcome back our faculty members as they
prepare for the Fall 2018 semester. Faculty who have not been on campus during
the summer have not seen how construction has changed our campus. Many will be
interested in hearing about what has been happening on campus during the
summer. Of course, the new state funding formula will be a subject of
conversation, as will AB705. That and more will be on the agenda for
The faculty will also spend some time in their departments
discussing faculty committee assignments and this semester’s approach amongst
