This is Samuel and I will discuss this and provide you information in this regard.

According to an Opinion of the CA Attorney General which you can read in full here at this link:

Pursuant to Vehicle Code section 21113(a), parking on the grounds of a private, tax-exempt educational institution is “subject to any condition or regulation which may be imposed” by the institution’s governing board. In addition, under Penal Code section 830.7(b) and Vehicle Code section 1808.25, school security officers may be vested with authority to enforce parking restriction.

That section of the code also states:

(b) A governing board, legislative body, or officer shall erect or place appropriate signs giving notice of any special conditions or regulations that are imposed under this section and the governing board, legislative body, or officer shall also prepare and keep available at the principal administrative office of the governing board, legislative body, or officer, for examination by all interested persons, a written statement of all those special conditions and regulations adopted pursuant to this section.

So to answer your question - yes, the Board of the school may impose the sanctions and yes, signs shall be posted even after notice is provided.
