The Board of Trustees is comprised of seven members elected to four-year terms by the voters in the district. Each member of the Board of Trustees must reside in the area that they represent.
Terms are staggered with elections being held every two years in connection with the general election. The Board oversees all academic programs and educational services by establishing policies to assure the quality, integrity and effectiveness of the student learning programs and services, and the financial stability of Saddleback College, Irvine Valley College and the Advanced Technology & Education Park.
The Board welcomes open discussion. Regular monthly meetings are open to the public and opportunities are provided for members of the public and staff to address the Board. Board policies, meeting schedule, agendas, board meeting highlights and streaming video of meetings are all available on the district website.
The student trustee is elected by the students of Saddleback College and Irvine Valley College and serves a one-year advisory term of office from May through the following April.
