Governing Board Policies

The Governing Board of the Monterey Peninsula Community College District has adopted the District mission statement and the following board policies to broadly govern the District consistent with legal requirements and the Board’s responsibilities.

District board policies and administrative procedures are divided into chapters and organized by subject area.  Board policy (BP) is the voice of the Board of Trustees and defines the general goals and acceptable practices for the operations of the District.  Board policy 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.

Board policies 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.

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.  Administrative procedures are developed and implemented by the Superintendent/President, administration, faculty members, and staff members.  Procedures do not require Governing Board action.

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.
