arrow Previous bar Next arrow

Any and all claims for money or damages against the district must be presented to and acted upon in accordance with Board policy and administrative regulation.

Compliance with this policy and accompanying administrative regulation is a prerequisite to any court action, unless the claim is governed by statutes or regulations which expressly free the claimant from the obligation to comply with district policies and procedures and the claims procedures set forth in the Government Code.

The Governing Board delegates to the Superintendent the authority to allow, compromise, or settle claims of $50,000 or less. (Government Code 935.4)

This policy is intended to apply retroactively to any existing causes of action and/or claims for money and/or damages.
