Guidelines for Implementation of Section 53200 - 53204 of Title 5 of the Administrative Code of California

Local Senates

The senate and the local board or its designee (usually the chancellor, or president and senior administration) need to "consult collegially" on the development of a new district policy for board action to implement the new regulations. This policy can be very general (i.e., a statement that the district will operate according to the provisions of Title 5, Sections 53200-53204) or more specific in terms of how the district carries out the regulations. Different boards and districts may include different amounts of procedural detail in district policies. (However, see recommendations in the third and fourth answers.)
