(Approved March 6, 2009)
Reassigned: Reassigned from normal faculty load.
President and Vice-President:
The positions of president and vice-president are seen as full-time responsibilities and the office holders are generally granted 100% reassigned time. Since the president and the vice president positions are critical to the viability of organization, there is an expectation that neither of the holders of these positions carries any other assignment, whether regular, overload, or reassigned. The payment of 100% reassigned time by the Academic Senate to the officers' district(s) is conditional on the two position holders not having any assignments (regular, overload, or reassigned) from their college/district.
All Other Members of the Executive Committee:
In the event that elected members of the Executive Committee, with the exception of the President or Vice-President, choose to take on overload assignments, they should keep in mind the roles and responsibilities for which they are receiving reassigned time and the expectation that they fulfill these roles and responsibilities. If members are not able to fulfill the requirements of their assignment(s), the reassigned time for the academic year may be re-evaluated.
Summer Session and Intersession:
Summer session and intersession are excluded from this policy.
The amount of reassigned time granted to members of the Executive Committee varies based on the roles and responsibilities assumed by the individual members.
In no case will the Academic Senate provide an amount of reassigned time such that when combined with other reassigned time that the faculty member is receiving from his/her college/district the total exceeds 100% of a full-time regular load.
Reassigned time can only be applied to a faculty member's regular load. Reassigned time cannot be applied to overload assignments. Local bargaining agreements may also impose limitations on the amount of reassigned time that may be granted.
See Title 5 §53207 for more information on Academic Senate reassigned time.
The Academic Senate Executive Committee will continue to review and revise these policies as necessary and appropriate.
