Job Security for Administrators in the California Community Colleges.
There is limited security in terms of employment with California community colleges. This paper addresses both the rights of administrators to continued, long-term employment, and the obligations of a college district to continue employment of an administrator. Following an introduction on turnover, discrimination, categories, and regulations of employment in California community colleges, this report contains information on employment law. Two individual scenarios are included: (1) non-reappointment of an administrator, and; (2) a situation in which an administrator accepts outside employment. For both, issues and outcomes are discussed. Other types of employment are described, such as contract and certified employees, which are short-term appointments that serve at the will of the governing board. Classified positions are generally more secure than certified positions because of the career nature of the employment relationship. Legal topics explored include the California Education Code, Assembly Bill 1725, board policies and procedures, political issues, and citations. Implications regarding districts and administrators cite relevant issues for both. (AS)
