BP 2410: Board Policies and Administrative Regulations

The Board of Education may adopt such policies as are authorized by law or determined by the Board of Education to be necessary for the efficient operation of Mt. Hood Community College.  Board policies are intended to be statements of intent by the Board of Education on a specific issue within its subject matter jurisdiction.

The policies have been written to be consistent with provisions of law but do not encompass all laws relating to Mt. Hood Community College’s activities.  All Mt. Hood Community College employees are expected to know and observe all provisions of law pertinent to their job responsibilities. 

Policies of the Board of Education may be adopted, revised, added to, or amended at any regular Board of Education meeting by a majority vote.  Proposed changes or additions shall be introduced not less than one regular meeting prior to the meeting at which action is recommended.  The Board of Education shall regularly assess its policies for effectiveness in fulfilling the Mt. Hood Community College’s mission. 

Administrative regulations are to be issued by the President as statements of method to be used in implementing Board of Education policy.  Such administrative regulations shall be consistent with the intent of Board of Education Policy.  Administrative regulations may be revised as deemed necessary by the President consistent with BP 2510. 

The Board of Education reserves the right to direct revisions of the administrative regulations should they, in the Board of Education’s judgment, be inconsistent with the Board of Education’s own policies. 

All Board of Education policies and administrative regulations shall be readily available to the Mt. Hood Community College’s employees via the college’s main website.
