Long Beach seamless education
Senator Alan Lowenthal
Governor Jerry Brown has signed SB 650, the Long Beach College Promise Act, authored by State Senator Alan Lowenthal. The legislation was sponsored by both Long Beach City College and the Long Beach Unified School District to support the Long Beach College Promise: a seamless education program designed to increase college success for students in Greater Long Beach.
