POLICIES OF JUNIOR COLLEGES IN CALIFORNIA FOR INSTRUCTORS' ATTENDANCE AT PROFESSIONAL CONFERENCES. SURVEY.
ROEMMICH, OTTO
IN A QUESTIONNAIRE SURVEY TO DETERMINE THE POLICIES OF CALIFORNIA JUNIOR COLLEGES FOR ATTENDANCE AT PROFESSIONAL MEETINGS, 63 OF THE 78 COLLEGES RESPONDED. WHILE ALL DISTRICTS PERMITTED INSTRUCTORS TO ATTEND CONFERENCES, ONLY 31 HAD RELEVANT WRITTEN POLICIES. OUT-OF-STATE CONFERENCE ATTENDANCE WAS COMMONLY SUBJECT TO LOCAL DISTRICT LIMITATIONS. PROCEDURES FOR DETERMINING WHO MIGHT ATTEND VARIED AMONG THE COLLEGES, AND IN MOST CASES SEVERAL PEOPLE WERE INVOLVED IN THE DECISION. POLICIES OR PLANS TO DETERMINE FREQUENCY OF ATTENDANCE WERE GENERALLY LACKING, ALTHOUGH FUNDS WERE BUDGETED IN ALL BUT FOUR COLLEGES. THE RANGE OF BUDGET ALLOTMENTS WAS $700 TO $13,640, WITH LITTLE RELATIONSHIP BETWEEN COLLEGE SIZE AND BUDGET PROVISION FOR THIS PURPOSE. GENERALLY, DISTRICTS PAID CONFERENCE EXPENSES, EVEN WHEN OVERNIGHT LODGING WAS NOT REQUIRED. VARIATIONS EXISTED IN CLASS COVERAGE FOR TEACHERS ATTENDING CONFERENCES, WITH MOST USING OTHER FACULTY MEMBERS AS SUBSTITUTES. POST-CONFERENCE REPORTING PRACTICES VARIED. RESPONSES AND COMMENTS TO SPECIFIC SURVEY ITEMS ARE SUMMARIZED. (WO)
