Dear GCCCD Colleagues,
I am pleased to report that the District has agreed to continue the adjunct office hours program! The cost of the program and the question of its permanent continuance will be taken into consideration as part of our overall compensation package in our upcoming contract negotiations.
I truly appreciate all of you who sent emails or stated they were willing to speak at tonight’s Board meeting! Your support was tremendous.
**So no need to speak at the Board meeting tonight, this issue is resolved.**
Adjunct Faculty: Below are the parameters of the program, please ensure you follow the steps below.
To be eligible for this program, you must:
a) Submit this form (which is also attached) to your dean’s office no later than the second week of your assignment;
b) Include in your course syllabi the dates and times of your office hours. Important: if you have a remote or online assignment, the office hours for that class must be synchronous in nature via Zoom or similar platform. How you propose to accomplish this should be stated in your syllabus as well.
If you teach at more than one college in the district, you will need to turn in a separate form to each dean at each college.
The agreement between the Guild and the District for this program fixes the pay rate at $40 per hour. See the second attachment for more details on this program. If you would like additional information on this program and other adjunct faculty benefits the Guild has won for its members, please visit this page on our website.
And one last thing as you are preparing your syllabi, please add this following statement encouraging all students to register to vote:
If you are not registered to vote, please register online today: registertovote.ca.gov
Making voter registration of all students part of our culture will reap great future rewards for us all. Thanks in advance for your consideration of this small request!
Please do not hesitate to contact me if you have any questions regarding any of the foregoing.
