SECTION 76120-76121



76120.  The governing board of a community college district shall
adopt rules and regulations relating to the exercise of free
expression by students upon the premises of each community college
maintained by the district, which shall include reasonable provisions
for the time, place, and manner of conducting such activities.
   Such rules and regulations shall not prohibit the right of
students to exercise free expression including, but not limited to,
the use of bulletin boards, the distribution of printed materials or
petitions, and the wearing of buttons, badges, or other insignia,
except that expression which is obscene, libelous or slanderous
according to current legal standards, or which so incites students as
to create a clear and present danger of the commission of unlawful
acts on community college premises, or the violation of lawful
community college regulations, or the substantial disruption of the
orderly operation of the community college, shall be prohibited.



76121.  The governing board of each community college district shall
require each community college maintained by the district, in
administering any test or examination, to permit any student who is
eligible to undergo the test or examination to do so, without
penalty, at a time when that activity would not violate the student's
religious creed. This requirement shall not apply in the event that
administering the test or examination at an alternate time would
impose an undue hardship which could not reasonably have been
avoided. In any court proceeding in which the existence of an undue
hardship which could not reasonably have been avoided is an issue,
the burden of proof shall be upon the institution.
