Cabrillo College Policies and Procedures

Board Policy

Board policy is the voice of the Governing Board and defines the general goals and acceptable practices for the operation of the District. It 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.

Administrative Procedures

Administrative Procedures 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 members, staff members, and students, it is the administrators/managers who are held responsible for upholding the specific information delineated in the regulations. Procedures do not require Governing Board action.

Cabrillo's policies and procedures:

  • Reside in Board Docs on the Policies tab;
  • Are continually reviewed, revised, and updated; and
  • Conform to the Community College League of California (CCLC) Policy and Procedure Service's numbering system.
