The Board of Trustees from time to time may adopt district policies regarding matters affecting the operation of Pierce College, which policies shall constitute the district's position on the matter until amended, repealed or superseded by the board. Such policies shall be compiled and published in a policy manual to be maintained in the office of each college President. A copy of the manual will be available in the college's libraries.

Policies adopted by the Board of Trustees are subject to federal and/or Washington State law or rules. Policies adopted by the board which become in conflict with federal and/or Washington State law or rules shall not be effective or enforced, and shall be revised accordingly.

The board specifically reserves the right to amend, repeal or otherwise modify any expression of policy contained in the policy manual. The board may exercise the right to modify policies at the sole discretion of the board. The administration will propose and implement procedures to carry out these policies.
