Community College Localized Policy Manual

Localization of your college’s policy manual results in board policies designed to meet statutory demands and the community college's unique local issues.

Community College Policy Reference Manual (CCPRM) subscribers may choose to have TASB Community College Services maintain their local board policy manual. The goal of localizing a college’s policy manual is to produce a comprehensive, current, and legally sound policy manual for use by the board and administration. The organization of the manual, based on the CCPRM, serves to articulate a college governance foundation, incorporating applicable legally mandated policies with appropriate local policies. Colleges that use Community College Services to maintain their localized policy manuals are eligible to receive: 

  • Semiannual TASB-initiated Numbered Updates that contain updated legal and local policies 
  • Assistance in completing local college-initiated policy changes, referred to as Local District Updates (LDUs)
  • Unlimited policy consultation services by phone and email with the college’s assigned policy consultant 
  • Quick, easy access to the college’s board policy manual through Policy Online® publication, with an additional subscription 

The Community College Administrator’s Guide to Policy Management (log into Policy Online to access) provides an overview of TASB’s board policy manual, discusses the reasons for and logistics of policy changes, and outlines the role of administrative regulations in implementing legal requirements and board policy. This guide is written for community colleges with a local policy manual maintained by TASB and focuses on information needed by the college’s policy contact.
