Governance, Policies and Procedures

In California Community Colleges, the faculty have a significant role to play in governance, policies, and procedures. Through our Academic Sentate, we bring a voice to all these areas. It is important for you to know and understand your role. The following links serve as a guide for you. If you have questions about any aspect of governance, please talk with your Academic Senate representative

Board policies describe the operations of the Board and broadly govern the District at the policy level consistent with legal requirements and the Board's responsibilities.

Administrative procedures are statements of specific methods to be used in implementing Board policies. Administrative procedures are issued and revised by the Superintendent/President, in consultation with the appropriate participatory governance groups.
