Task Force on Board Relationships. Final Report.
Washington State Board for Community Coll. Education, Olympia.
The governance and management of the community college system in the state of Washington is based upon a division of responsibilities between the 22 district boards of trustees and the State Board. In 1967, a formal division of responsibilities between the district boards and the State Board was enacted by the state legislature. Later reports of district and State Board activities divided these responsibilities into 10 problem areas: (1) operating budget actions; (2) capital budget and project actions; (3) personnel actions, including professional negotiations; (4) real property acquisitions; (5) program and curriculum-related actions; (6) planning; (7) fees and charges; (8) legislative program; (9) State agency status; (10) multi-district cooperation. This report reassesses district and State Board responsibilities in each of these 10 areas, and makes a number of recommendations. A matrix graph is appended which explains the statutory responsibilities of each of the boards, enumerates recommendations, explains the implications of the recommendations for board responsibilities, and delineates the steps necessary for implementation.
