BP 2430: Delegation of Authority to the President

The Board of Education delegates to the President the executive responsibility for administering the policies adopted by the Board of Education and executing all decisions of the Board of Education requiring administrative action.

The President may delegate any powers and duties entrusted to him/her by the Board of Education, but will be specifically responsible to the Board of Education for the execution of such delegated powers and duties.

The President is empowered to reasonably interpret Board of Education policy.  In situations where there is no Board of Education policy direction, the President shall have the power to act, but such decisions shall be subject to review by the Board of Education.  It is the duty of the President to inform the Board of Education of such action and to recommend written Board of Education policy if one is required.

The President is expected to perform the duties contained in the President’s job description and fulfill other responsibilities as may be determined in annual goal-setting or evaluation sessions.  The job description and goals and objectives for performance shall be developed by the Board of Education in consultation with the President.

The President shall ensure that the Mt. Hood Community College complies with all relevant laws and regulations, and submit required reports in timely fashion.

The President shall make available any information or give any report that the Board of Education as a whole requests.  Individual Board of Education member requests for information shall be met if, in the opinion of the President, they are not unduly burdensome or disruptive to Mt. Hood Community College’s operations. Information provided to any Board of Education member shall be provided to all Board of Education members.

The President shall act as the professional advisor to the Board of Education in policy formation.
