BERKELEY -- Peralta Community College District trustees will meet at a Berkeley restaurant Tuesday evening for a public reception followed by consideration of new policies on evaluating the chancellor and the board itself.
Also on the agenda is consideration of contracts for district security services.
The reception to welcome members of the Berkeley City Council, its school board and city residents will be from 6 to 7 p.m. at Himalayan Flavors, 1585 University Ave., followed by the meeting, which is to begin with a study session on policies recommended by the Accrediting Commission for Community and Junior Colleges.
Among the policies are a new one for evaluating the district's chancellor and a code of ethics and standards for board members.
The board plans to adopt the policies at a later meeting after Tuesday's review.
On the security guard issue, the board will consider splitting the job between two companies, Securitas Security Services USA and American Guard Services.
The district evaluated both companies and rated Securitas "outstanding" at Berkeley City College but found it deficient at other sites.
The administration is recommending Securitas for the nearly $136,000, eight-month contract at Berkeley City College and paying American Guard Services $203,000 for security over the same period at College of Alameda, Laney College, Merritt College and the district administrative center.
