District Administrative Procedures
Board policies are the voice of the Governing Board and define the goals and acceptable practices for the operation of the District. Policies implement federal and state laws and regulations. The Governing Board, through policy, delegates authority to the Chancellor. The Chancellor and District employees are responsible to reasonably interpret Board policy as well as other relevant laws and regulations that govern the District.
Administrative Procedures implement Board policies, laws, and regulations, and address how the 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 Procedures may be developed by the Chancellor, managers, faculty members, staff members, and students, it is the Chancellor who is held responsible for upholding the specific information delineated in the Administrative Procedures. Procedures do not require Governing Board action.
BP/AP Review Process
All Policies and Procedures are publicly accessible via the SJECCD BoardDocs website on the Policies tab.
All Board Policies and Administrative Procedures are reviewed, revised, and updated according to the SJECCD Cyclical Review Calendar, and are aligned to the Community College League of California (CCLC) Policy and Procedure Service's numbering system.
