Governing Board Policies

Print

Board of Trustees of the Monterey Community College District has adopted the District Mission Statement and the following Board policies to describe the operations of the Board and broadly govern the District consistent with legal requirements and the Board’s responsibilities.

In adopting these policies the Board intends to focus the District upon its mission and on institutional success and to foster public understanding and support of the District and its educational programs. These policies apply to and provide direction to the District, its employees, and the Board as they carry out their responsibilities.

Board policies implement and interpret the law and applicable standards. They are not intended to and cannot conflict with or override the law. If a conflict arises, the applicable law prevails. Similarly, the District has collective bargaining agreements with many of its employees that may alter or expand upon aspects of these policies to the extent allowed and agreed.

Board policies do not cover all laws and requirements that apply to the District. Many of the policies repeat some, but not all, aspects of existing law in order to highlight areas of institutional interest or facilitate understanding of requirements that govern the operations of the District. Board policies also supplement and provide more specific direction on important topics than the law or accreditation standards alone provide. Many Board policies have associated administrative procedures that contain further detail on implementing Board policies.

IMPORTANT NOTE:

Monterey Peninsula College is currently in the process of updating its Board Policies and Administrative Procedures. The section below contains links to the new structure that MPC is adopting for its Board Policies and active links to newly updated policies that have been approved by the Board of Trustees. The Governing Board Policies - Archives link provides access to existing Board policies formulated under the old structure that have not yet been transitioned.  Because the structure for the Board policies is changing, there may be some redundancy across these 2 frameworks, if so, the updated policies shall supersede the previous version.
