Minimum Qualifications for Faculty and Administrators in California Community Colleges. Second Edition.
Sheehan, Maria, Comp.; And Others
This booklet contains selected statutes, regulations, and policies dealing with the minimum employment qualifications for California community college faculty and administrators, including changes that resulted from a 1993 comprehensive review of the minimum qualifications regulations. Presented first are the relevant sections of the California Education Code, which was adopted by the Legislature in 1988 as part of Assembly Bill (AB) 1725, the community college reform bill. Significant amendments made in 1989, 1990, 1991, and 1993 are also included. Next, the report presents implementing regulations originally adopted into Title 5 of the California Code of Regulations by the Board of Governors in July 1989, with additions or amendments following in July 1990, September 1991, and June 1992, prior to the major amendments of September 1993. These regulations cover minimum qualifications, faculty interns, and Equal Opportunity Programs and Services Qualifications. Discipline lists are presented next, indicating which disciplines require the master's degree and which do not. These lists, used to implement the minimum qualifications for credit instructors, counselors, and librarians, were prepared and reviewed primarily by the Academic Senate for California Community Colleges. They were first adopted in July 1989, underwent minor revisions in 1990 and 1991, and were significantly amended in September 1993. Excerpts from AB 1725 such as legislative findings and declarations relating to minimum qualifications and hiring processes are also included. A list of 21 related resources concludes the report.
