Yavapai College Policies

The District Governing Board authorizes the College President to establish and implement administrative policies and procedures.

District Governing Board Policies

Administrative Policies & Procedures

Sections (Sections 2 – 6, above) contain policies organized in sections as titled. Each policy, and where applicable, a procedure to describe its implementation, is to be used with discretion, understanding, and management in the spirit in which the policy is written. Policies will be regularly reviewed and may be added, deleted, or revised as necessary and appropriate to reflect the dynamics of the College.

Changes will be communicated to all Yavapai College employees. All provisions of former policies are superseded on the subsequent policy effective date. Under no circumstances are the statements contained in these policies to be considered a contract of employment, an obligation, or guarantee on the part of the College.

Administrative Policies and Procedures Writing Guidelines

Policy Review Council

The Policy Review Council, comprised of designated cross-functional members, meets as necessary based the volume of submissions. The Council reviews the policy draft, discusses pertinent issues with the policy writer, solicits feedback from the applicable College community, and ultimately sends a final recommendation to the President's Cabinet (PC). That process is repeated at the PC level, until a final recommendation is sent to the President. The President makes the final decision.

Developing new or revising existing policy

The development of new administrative policy or revision to existing administrative policy is accomplished through a consistent administrative process. Under the direction of the President or the applicable Executive Leadership Team member, both a preliminary review based on relevance, legality, and cost effectiveness as well as a draft consistent with the required format will be prepared. Following Executive Leadership Team review, the draft will be submitted to the Chair of the Policy Review Council, the Chief Human Resources Officer.
