  • Custodian of RCC District funds.
  • Custodial responsibility for all fiscal records of the Board.
  • All financial reports as requested by the Board and President/District Clerk and required by law.

  1. Situations that conflict with current Board policy.
  2. Matters involving major differences of opinion after administrative remedy has been applied without arriving at a viable solution.
  3. Establishing salary guidelines and proposed contracts to be offered college personnel and contracts that would be binding to the Board.
  4. All other matters which the President wishes to call to the attention of the Board.

Responsibility of the President includes, but is not limited to, the furtherance of college programs and services, budget preparation, human resources administration, community relations, and supervision of college programs and services.
