Local College Districts

Concerning local college districts.
2024 Regular Session
Higher Education
Bill Summary

The act authorizes the board of trustees (board) of any local college district to determine the number of trustees on the board. The act permits 9-member boards that establish board member districts to designate one or 2 board member districts as at-large districts and permits 11-member boards that establish board member districts to designate up to 3 board member districts as at-large districts.

Under existing law, voters must approve a school district's annexation into a local college district at a regular biennial school election. The act removes that restriction so that the approval vote may occur at any regular election.

The act permits a recipient of a local investments in transformational affordable housing grant for a project in a rural community or rural resort community to prioritize providing affordable housing for enrolled postsecondary students, local college district employees, and local government employees in buildings on land owned and controlled by a local college district.
