A STUDY OF SABBATICAL LEAVE PRACTICES IN CALIFORNIA PUBLIC JUNIOR COLLEGES.
LEGRAND, DULCIE; SWANSON, HERBERT L.
QUESTIONNAIRE RESPONSES FROM 71 CALIFORNIA JUNIOR COLLEGE ADMINISTRATORS (A 97 PERCENT RETURN) AND DISTRICT POLICY STATEMENTS WERE ANALYZED TO PROVIDE A BASIS FOR MAKING POLICY CONCERNING SABBATICAL LEAVES AT EL CAMINO COLLEGE. SABBATICAL LEAVE POLICIES WERE IN EFFECT AT 58 COLLEGES, AND THOSE WITHOUT SUCH POLICIES WERE GENERALLY NEW INSTITUTIONS. POLICY STATEMENTS VARIED IN LENGTH AND AMOUNT OF DETAIL, WITH THE MORE PRECISE STATEMENTS IN THE LARGER DISTRICTS. THE PURPOSES FOR WHICH LEAVES WERE MOST COMMONLY GRANTED WERE ADVANCED STUDY, RESEARCH, AND TRAVEL, ALTHOUGH THERE WAS MUCH VARIATION IN DETAILS OF INTERPRETATION OF THESE PURPOSES. SENIORITY WAS THE MOST FREQUENT BASIS FOR SELECTION, FOLLOWED BY THE NATURE OF THE PROJECT. THE NUMBER OF LEAVES GRANTED AT ONE TIME VARIED. THE RANGE OF COMPENSATION FOR A YEAR'S LEAVE WAS FROM 40 TO 60 PERCENT OF THE TEACHER'S REGULAR ANNUAL SALARY, WITH ADJUSTMENTS FOR LEAVES OF LESS THAN A YEAR. SAMPLE DISTRICT POLICIES, THE TEXT OF PERTINENT LEGISLATION, AND THE SURVEY QUESTIONNAIRE ARE INCLUDED. (WO)
