Preliminary Report on Part-Time Faculty.
California Community Colleges, Sacramento.
This report summarizes survey data on part-time faculty utilization in California community colleges. Data was received from 67 of the 69 community college districts. The primary purpose of the survey was to obtain information that would be useful to community college boards and administrators in dealing with part-time faculty legislation. Tables provide data illustrating the composition of the day division instructional staff (full-time vs. part-time) by district, the composition of the evening division instructional staff (part-time vs. full-time with extra pay) by district, the sources of evening part-timers (i.e., local high schools, other colleges, non-education professions, etc.) by district, the cost increases involved in converting from part-time to pro-rata pay scales, and pro-rata cost comparisons for 30, 25, and 15 hour work weeks for selected districts. Results indicate that the statewide day faculty is comprised by 79 percent full-timers and 21 percent part-timers; the ratio of full-time to part-time day faculty varies widely--eight districts report a ratio greater than 20/1 and 31 districts report a ratio less than 5/1.
