Nondiscrimination in Community College Programs Funded through the Chancellor or Board of Governors (Regulations to Implement Assembly Bill 803, Chapter 972 of 1977). Agenda Item 5.
Close-Kaufman, Catherine; And Others
Pursuant to Assembly Bill 803, Chapter 972, of the California Statutes of 1977, which prohibits unlawful discrimination in programs receiving state aid, this report outlines regulations for the investigation and adjudication of discrimination complaints within the California community colleges. The report first examines the responsibility of the Chancellor and Board of Governors, under the law, to investigate complaints, provide admininstrative hearings when there is probable cause that a violation has occurred, and curtail state funds to colleges that have been found guilty of unlawful discrimination. The controversial role of the Secretary of Health and Welfare in assisting state agencies in the preparation of regulations for the implementation of these regulations is then discussed, as are the estimated costs such regulations will impose on the colleges. The regulations themselves are then presented, grouped under four articles: (1) a statement of intent; (2) definitions of protected groups and prohibited activities; and (3) the primary role of the college district in informing the college community of the regulations and in adjudicating complaints; and (4) the responsibility of the Chancellor's Office in providing further investigations, if needed, and in enforcing decisions. Critical comments made by the Office of the Secretary of Health and Welfare are appended. (JP)
