California Education Code

California Education Code

The California Legislature establishes law regarding community colleges, and the laws are contained in Education Code. To use the online search of Education Code, note that the sections dealing with community colleges begin with Title 3, Division 7, Part 43 (section 70900). Education Code supersedes Title 5 regulations where details for implementation are found. Curriculum committees may need references to Education Code to ensure compliance, however Title 5 is probably more useful and explicit about expectations for colleges.
