This paper provides guidelines on local decision-making processes that were developed by a joint task force of representatives of the California Community College Trustees (CCCT), Chief Executive Officers of the California Community Colleges (CEOCCC), and the Academic Senate for California Community Colleges (ASCCC). They have been endorsed by the boards of directors of the CCCT and CEOCCC and by resolution of the ASCCC. The guidelines augment ones developed in 1992 by a similar joint task force. The guidelines are grouped by issue area and are in the form of questions and answers. The questions and answers are not intended to cover all situations which may be encountered, but address questions most frequently raised. In the answers developed, use of the word “should” refers to a good practice, but one that is not required. The word “must” indicates the action outlined is required by law or state regulation. The purpose of the guidelines is to provide assistance to trustees, CEOs, academic senate leaders, administrators, classified staff and students which will enable them to fulfill the intent of effective participation in local decision-making as delineated in state law and Board of Governors regulations.
