The Temple College Board Policies are designated as LEGAL or LOCAL. Administrative regulations are created/revised by the Policy Manual Review Committee to provide procedural guidelines for carrying out Board policies. In the event an administrative regulation is found to conflict with Board policy, the Board policy shall supersede.
All Board Policies can be accessed in the TASB Policy Manual.
All LEGAL policies have the designation “(LEGAL)” in the upper right corner of each page, directly below the alphabetical code. The legally referenced policies track the language of the U.S. and Texas Constitutions, federal statutes, the Texas Education Code and other Texas law, Attorney General Opinions, Texas Higher Education Coordinating Board rules, the Texas Administrative Code, and other sources of authority defining governance of public community college districts in the state of Texas.
The Localized Policy Manual includes “(LOCAL)” policies adopted by the board to govern the college district and to meet the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools Commission on Colleges (SACSCOC) governance requirements and may include local administrative regulations in order to house legal, local, and administrative documents in one convenient location.
Administrative Regulations are listed below according to the Section and Board policies referenced.
