Board Bylaws, Policies, and Administrative Procedures

Pasadena City College's Board Bylaws (BB), Policies (BP) and Administrative Procedures (AP) underwent renumbering process to conform with the Community College League of California (CCLC) Policy and Procedure Service's numbering system.

All of CCLC's Board Bylaw, Policy and Administrative Procedures template documents are vetted with its legal partner (Liebert Cassidy Whitmore (LCW) who develop recommended language for community college districts throughout the state to consider when revising/updating their Board bylaws, policies and Administrative procedures.

Please be advised that all of the District's Board Bylaws, Policies and Administrative Procedures are currently being updated. As current bylaws and policies are revised and new bylaws and policies are written, they will be approved by the Board of Trustees and posted on this page.

Board Bylaw

A Board Bylaw outlines how the District's Governing Board (Board of Trustees) will conduct their business for the District. Bylaws do not have administrative procedures. The Board of Trustees in conjunction with the Superintendent-President develop and revise Board Bylaws as necessary to insure legal compliance with state, federal, and local regulations.

Board Policy

Board Policy Development

Board policies are the voice of the Governing Board (Board of Trustees) and defines the general goals and acceptable practices for the operation of the District. It implements federal and state laws and regulations. The Board of Trustees, through policy, delegates authority to and through the Superintendent-President to administer the District. The Superintendent/President and District employees are responsible to reasonably interpret Board policy as well as other relevant laws and regulations that govern the District.

Administrative Procedures

Administrative Procedure Development

Administrative Procedures implement Board policy, and adhere to current laws and regulations. They address how the general goals of the District are achieved and define the operations of the District. They can include details of policy implementation, responsibility, accountability, and standards of practice.

Although Administrative Procedures may be developed by the Superintendent-President, managers, faculty members, staff members, and students, it is the Administration of the College who are held responsible for upholding the specific information delineated in the regulations. Administrative Procedures do not require Governing Board action or approval.
