Changes To Local District College Statutes

Concerning local district junior colleges, and, in connection therewith, changing the term local district junior college to local district college.
2016 Regular Session
Higher Education
Bill Summary

The act allows a board of trustees of a local district college to consist of 5, 7, 9, or 11 members. But an existing seven-member board of trustees can expand its membership to 9 or 11 members only if one or more additional school districts are annexed into the local college district. The act allows a school district or group of school districts to be annexed into a local college district if the school district or group of school districts is located entirely within the boundaries of the local district college's service area. The act specifies the procedures by which the Colorado mountain college board of trustees may take an action without holding a regular or special meeting.

The act authorizes the revisor of statutes to change the phrases 'local junior college' and 'junior college' to 'local district college' throughout the statutes and the phrases 'local junior college district' and 'junior college district' to 'local college district' throughout the statutes.

(Note: This summary applies to this bill as enacted.)
