Board Policies and Administrative Procedures
Pasadena City College's Board Policies (BP) and Administrative Procedures (AP) are undergoing a renumbering process to conform with the Community College League of California (CCLC) Policy and Procedure Service's numbering system. All of CCLC's Board 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 policies and Administrative procedures.
As the college moves through this process, Board Policies and Administrative Procedures will be posted separately on this page. This new structure will provide for ease of use and transparency as Board Policies and Administrative Procedures are reviewed and revised.
Please be advised that all of the District's Board Policies and Administrative Procedures are currently being updated. As current policies are revised and new policies are written, they will be approved by the Governing Board and posted on this page.
Board PolicyBoard policy is 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 Governing Board, 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 ProceduresAdministrative Procedures implement Board policy, laws, and regulations. They address how the general goals of the District are achieved and define operations of the District. They 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 administrators/managers who are held responsible for upholding the specific information delineated in the regulations. Administrative Procedures do not require Governing Board action but are generally included for reference in the Board Policy approval process
