District Committees

​What is participatory governance?

The Board of Governors of the California Community Colleges has adopted regulations setting “…minimum standards governing procedures established by governing boards in community college districts to ensure faculty, staff, and students the right to participate effectively in district and college governance, and the opportunity to express their opinions at the campus level and to ensure that their opinions are given every reasonable consideration…” (see Education Code Section 70901(b))

What is the role of classified employees in participatory governance?

Classified staff are guaranteed the opportunity to provide input in all areas that affect staff, “…for staff participation in governance outside of the arena of collective bargaining” (see "Minimum Standards for Staff Participation in Governance," Board of Governors, California Community Colleges, September 13-14, 1990). AB 1725 directs boards to provide opportunity for input, and ensure that the recommendations and opinions of faculty, students, and staff receive reasonable consideration.
