Assembly Bill 1541 – Entitles Student Trustees To Cast Advisory Votes
Existing law requires the governing board of each community college district to include one or more non-voting students within the governing board membership. A student trustee must be enrolled in a community college of the district and chosen by students enrolled in the community colleges of the district, in accordance with procedures prescribed by the governing board.
This bill gives each student member of the governing board of a community college district an advisory vote. The student board member is entitled to cast the advisory vote immediately before the regular members of the governing board cast their votes. By requiring community college districts to revise governing board procedures, the bill imposes a state-mandated local program.
(AB 1541 amends Education Code Section 72023.5.)
