Continuing and Career Appointments. Policy of the Board of Trustees, Schenectady County Community College.
Schenectady County Community Coll., Schenectady, NY.
This document outlines the policy and review procedures of Schenectady County Community College on continuing and career appointments. The policy was adopted by the Board of Trustees to establish conditions under which staff members could, for the first time, receive appointments for more than one year. The policy applies to instructional staff (continuing appointments) and professional noninstructional staff (career appointments) in full-time positions. The process for continuing or career appointment begins in the fifth full year of service by the staff member. A recommendation is prepared by the immediate supervisor and is forwarded with appropriate background information to a committee designated by the president, then to the responsible dean, then to the president, and finally to the Board of Trustees. At each step, the recommendation of each reviewing official is added to the body of documentation. Action by the board is final and cannot be appealed. This process is repeated after five full years in a continuing or career appointment. The policy also stipulates that the total number of continuing and career appointments may not exceed 60% of the total number of positions to which the policy applies, and further provides for termination of staff members for physical or mental incapacity, cause, or retrenchment.
