HB16-1259 - Changes To Local District College Statutes

Passed/Signed into Law
Concerning Local District Junior Colleges, And, In Connection Therewith, Changing The Term Local District Junior College To Local District College.

Under current law, the board of trustees for a local district college can have either 5 or 7 members. The bill allows the board of trustees to expand its membership to 9 or 11 members.

Under existing law, a school district or group of districts that seeks to be annexed to a local college district must be adjacent to the local college district. The bill allows a school district or group of districts to be annexed to a local college district if the district or group of districts is located entirely within the boundaries of the local district college's service area.

The bill specifies the procedures by which a local college district board of trustees may take an action without holding a regular or special meeting.

The bill authorizes the revisor of statutes to change the phrase "local junior college" or "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.
