Definitions
A Region is defined as the geographical boundaries
of a community college district.
A Consortium is at least one community college
district and at least one school district within the
geographical boundaries of the community college
district.
A Member is defined as a public school district
within the geographical boundaries of the
designated region.
A Partner is determined by the local consortium’s
membership.

AB86 defines region as the geographic boundaries of
the 72 community college districts.
• Boundaries define a consortium’s geographical area.
• Boundaries do NOT define leadership roles within a consortium.
• It is expected that there will be shared leadership of the consortia
between community college districts and school districts.
• If a community college district chooses not to participate in a
consortium, a neighboring community college district may form a
consortium with school districts within the boundaries of the
nonparticipating community college district. Combined allocation.
• A consortium may be made up of more than one region if members
agree to merge into a single consortium. Allocation is combined.
• The fiscal agent can be either a school district or a community college
district.
• Consortia are encouraged to include other providers and partners.

Members and Partners
• Districts may be members of only one
consortium. Although school districts and
community college districts may be members
of only one consortium, they may be partners
or participate in multiple consortia.
• Example: A school district that crosses two or
more CC geographic boundaries must choose
to be a member of only one consortium but
may be partners in multiple consortia.
