1969-70 Practices of California's Largest Public Junior Colleges: Answers to Some Questions of Interest to Junior College Instructors Outside the Area of Contract Salaries.
Thompson, Anton
This report summarizes responses to a 5-page questionnaire sent to the heads of the 22 largest public junior college districts in California. The 100 per cent response rate included information on the following areas: (1) convention and conference attendance; (2) faculty rank; (3) sabbatical leave; (4) social security; (5) division and department heads or chairmen; (6) summer school compensation; and (7) extra-compensation classroom teaching during the regular year. Six of the responding districts indicated assignment of faculty rank. The median of the maximum percentages of staff who may be authorized for sabbatical leave was 4.5, with a median salary of 100 per cent of a regular instructor's salary for one semester and 50 per cent if the leave is longer. The most common compensation for division or department heads was a teaching-load reduction, with some additional pay. Provision for secretarial assistance varied widely, depending on the district. No identifiable basic pay pattern was evident for paying regular instructors for summer teaching. The most frequent limitation on full-time instructors teaching beyond their normal load was six additional hours per week. Other median practices of interest include a normal full-time teaching load of 15 hours, and a full-time counseling load of 35 hours per week and 525 students. An administrator was provided for every 566 students in average daily attendance. (JO)
