Summary

This study was undertaken to obtain and analyze information pertinent to the Arizona Revised Statutes for community colleges dealing with precinct selection, District Governing Board member terms, and their qualifications, vacancies, and election procedures. The study design involved questionnaire surveys of practices in other states and of State Board members; interviews with district governing board members and community college administrators to determine their attitudes towards existing legislation; and a study of board election patterns for the previous five years. A study of governing board member characteristics revealed that 87% were male, 82% were white, 68% had bachelor's degrees or higher, 79% were between 40 and 69 years old, 56% had incomes between $26,000 and $50,000; and business executives comprised the largest occupational group. Most district board members favored retaining current legislative requirements, although two metropolitan district members favored larger boards. Support for current precinct residency requirements, election procedures and terms was virtually unanimous. State Board members favored increasing board size, holding elections concurrently with General Elections, and were evenly divided on increasing precinct numbers. The attitudes of chief executive officers generally paralleled those of the boards with which they worked. Fourteen recommendations follow. (TR)
