The District Council is the primary participatory governance advisory committee to provide the Chancellor with input and advice in addressing the strategic priorities and Board ends policies. It is distinguished as a council to reflect its overall responsibility for coordinating district-wide planning, including coordination, input and review of district policies and procedures and district-wide committees. The council must have direct representation from the other district advisory committees in order to ensure appropriate linkages with the other planning processes within the district. Members of the Council will be responsible for bringing information back to their constituent groups. This permits a constant flow of information between the colleges and the district office, and across all planning activities of the various entities and constituency groups.
