Marin Community College District Board Policies and Administrative Procedures
Board Policy (BP) is the voice of the 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, 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 (AP) 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 procedures may be developed by the Superintendent/President, managers, faculty, and staff members, it is the administrators/managers who are held responsible for upholding the specific information delineated in the procedures. Administrative Procedures do not require Board action. Not all Board Policies have a related Administrative Procedure.
College of Marin Board Policies and Administrative Procedures have been renumbered to conform with the Community College League of California (CCLC) Policy and Procedure Service numbering system. New and revised Policies and Procedures reference the former College of Marin policy or procedure number when applicable.
See the Board Policy/Administrative Procedure Revision Project for more information on the governance process used to review and revise Board Policies and Administrative Procedures.
