The Rancho Santiago Community College District (RSCCD), one of four community college districts located in Orange County, California, offers associate degrees and adult education certificates through its two colleges: Santa Ana College in Santa Ana and Santiago Canyon College in Orange.

The RSCCD serves central and eastern Orange County, covering 24% of the county's total area (193 square miles) in the cities of Orange and Villa Park, as well as the community of Anaheim Hills and portions of the cities of Garden Grove, Irvine, Santa Ana, and Tustin.

The RSCCD is governed by a Board of Trustees that is composed of seven trustees elected by the registered voters within the district's boundaries and one student member elected by the student body of Santa Ana College and Santiagao Canyon College. Trustees, with the exception of the student member, are elected to four-year terms commencing in December of the year elected. As terms are staggered, elections are held every two years in connection with the general election. The seven locally elected trustees must reside in three specific areas but are elected at-large.

The current trustees and the areas that they were elected from are as follows:

Name Year First
Year Last
1 Jose Solorio 2012 (elected) 2012
2 John R. Hanna 1998 (appointed) 2014
3 Nelida Mendoza Yanez 2012 (elected) 2012
4 Lawrence R. "Larry" Labrado 1994 (appointed) 2014
5 Claudia C. Alvarez 2012 (elected) 2012
6 Phillip E. Yarbrough 1996 (elected) 2012
7 Arianna P. Barrios 2011 (appointed) 2012
Student Vacant 2014-15

For 2015, Labrado is serving as the Board President, Alvarez as the Board Vice President, and Hanna as the Board Clerk.
