On May 1 and May 2, the Jr. RISE program held their first annual “Signing Day” for more than 200 Luther Burbank and Hiram Johnson High School students entering California Community Colleges. Students were full of joy and appreciation as they celebrated a victory they may not have envisioned as an 11th grader. Parents and teachers came out to celebrate and pat each other on the back for a job well done. Administrators also came out to celebrate and give words of wisdom and encouragement.
Jr. RISE, the high school branch of RISE, supports at-risk students to graduate from high school and successfully transition into community college. Jr. RISE outreach staff and adjunct counselors assist students daily with tutoring, academic counseling, after-school college prep classes, and college applications.
On campus at Sac City, RISE continues the support by welcoming students into an academic family environment that connects them to various academic support services including EOPS, Puente, UMOJA, SAGE, Transfer Center, Career Center, MESA, SESI, and DSPS. RISE strives to expose students to transfer opportunities and employment opportunities while they work towards their academic and career goals.
Students may pick up their Summer 2019 Access card (student ID) and Universal Transit Pass (UTP) stickers starting June 3.
Check the schedule below for pick up hours and locations.

Facilities planning is a critical piece of the Sacramento City College and Los Rios Community College District’s overall educational planning process that allows the us to periodically evaluate conditions, identify needs and adjust accordingly to promote continued success.
The college and District are currently in the process of updating our 2010 Facilities Master Plan, with a final product anticipated this summer. The Plan will address new construction and the modernization of existing space for continued or new purposes. Facilities planning throughout the District is a continuous, carefully executed operation that takes into account several factors including current and anticipated student populations, and facility functions and capacities.
Working collaboratively with leadership, academic department heads and faculty members from SCC and Districtwide, architects and staff have gathered input regarding facilities needs and improvements to help create a plan that will ultimately be presented to the District for consideration. By engaging a diverse group of campus representatives with on-the-ground experience, the updated Plan will reflect current priorities, align with student needs and better respond to a dynamic learning environment.
For additional information on the facilities master planning process, please contact the SCC facilities office.
