72400.  The governing board of each community college district shall
fix and prescribe the duties to be performed by all persons in
community college service in the district.



72401.  (a) Notwithstanding any other provisions of law, any person
may be permitted by the governing board of any community college
district to serve as a nonteaching volunteer aide under the immediate

   (b) No district may abolish any of its classified positions and

position. A district shall not refuse to employ a person in a vacant
classified position and use volunteer aides in lieu thereof.
   (c) Volunteer aides may be used to enhance a district's
educational program, but not to displace classified employees, nor to
allow districts to utilize volunteers in lieu of normal employee

pursuant to this section shall have one vote for each member to be
elected to the county committee pursuant to Article 1 (commencing

72411.  (a) Every educational administrator shall be employed, and
all other administrators may be employed, by the governing board of

the consent of the administrator concerned, may at any time
terminate, effective on the next succeeding first day of July, the
term of employment of, and any contract of employment with, the
administrator of the district, and reemploy the administrator, on any
terms and conditions as may be mutually agreed upon by the board and
the administrator, for a new term to commence on the effective date
of the termination of the existing term of employment.
   (b) If the governing board of a district determines that an
administrator is not to be reemployed by appointment or contract in
his or her administrative position upon the expiration of his or her
appointment or contract, the administrator shall be given written
notice of this determination by the governing board. For an
administrator employed by appointment or contract, the term of which
is longer than one year, the notice shall be given at least six
months in advance of the expiration of the appointment or contract
unless the contract or appointment provides otherwise. For every
other administrator, notice that the administrator may not be
reemployed by appointment or contract in his or her administrative
position for the following college year shall be given on or before
March 15.
   (c) If the governing board fails to reemploy an administrator by
appointment or contract in his or her administrative position and the
written notice provided for in this section has not been given, the
administrator shall, unless the existing appointment or contract
provides otherwise, be deemed to be reemployed for a term of the same
duration as the one completed with all other terms and conditions
remaining unchanged.
   (d) Subdivisions (b) and (c) do not apply to any administrator who

her administrative assignment at the pleasure of the governing board.
The dismissal of, and imposition of penalties for cause on, an
administrator employed by appointment or contract pursuant to Section
72411 shall, if the administrator does not have tenure as a faculty
member, be in accordance with the terms of the appointment or
contract of employment. If the administrator has tenure as a faculty
member, the dismissal of, and imposition of penalties for cause on,
