In addition to the workload described pursuant to Article 11, all contract, temporary contract, and regular faculty members are expected to participate in professional responsibilities outside the classroom, such as attending division and department meetings, participating in program planning, participating on search and selection committees, serving on evaluation teams, and participating in college governance as needed. These requirements may be scheduled on any day considered to be part of the academic calendar (academic calendar defined in 1.4.7).

  • 11.1 GENERAL PROVISIONS - CLASSROOM INSTRUCTORS
    • 11.1.1 Class Size
      The District will continue to follow past practice regarding maximum class size. When there is an inquiry regarding maximum class size, the District recognizes CCFT's right to have access to enrollment cap numbers for maximum class size for the previous three academic years. The District reserves the right to cancel any class that does not meet the minimum requirements.
    • 11.1.2 Teaching Load - Contract or Regular
      • 11.1.2.1 A standard full-time teaching load shall be thirty (30) teaching units per academic year as defined in Article 1.4.6. A unit member's load may range from twenty-nine (29) teaching units to thirty (30) teaching units per academic year and still be considered a full load. Overload and load reductions are based on 30 units per academic year.
        • 11.1.2.1.1 Contract faculty may be assigned up to 6 teaching units of overload per semester.
        • 11.1.2.1.2 Contract faculty may be assigned to work a maximum of fourteen and a half teaching units per academic year beyond the full time load required in Article 11 when:
          • 11.1.2.1.2.1 Excess overload is generated by a large class size factor, or
          • 11.1.2.1.2.2 Special circumstances are mutually agreed upon by the unit member and the Dean.
      • 11.1.2.2 The standard full teaching load shall consist of two (2) semesters of thirteen (13) to seventeen (17) teaching units each.
      • 11.1.2.3 No unit member shall teach less than thirteen (13) or more than seventeen (17) teaching units per semester except by mutual consent, or unless fewer than thirteen (13) teaching units are required to complete thirty (30) teaching units per year.
      • 11.1.2.4 A unit member may meet part of her/his load by teaching during summer sessions or at any other time of the year whenever the CCFT and the District agree that such teaching is required by the needs of the particular program.
    • 11.1.3 Office Hours
      • 11.1.3.1 Definition
        An office hour is defined as a fifty (50) minute period of time outside of a regularly scheduled teaching assignment when a unit member is required to be available for student consultation and present in her/his office or in an instructional area; i.e., classroom or laboratory related to her/his teaching assignment.
      • 11.1.3.2 Unit members shall schedule office hours with the concurrence of the Dean or appropriate supervisor.
      • 11.1.3.3 Number of Hours
        • 11.1.3.3.1 Except as noted below, a full-time contract/regular unit member shall schedule and hold five (5) office hours per week. These office hours shall total 250 minutes, at least one session each day during which a teaching assignment is scheduled for that employee. Each scheduled session must be held for a minimum of 25 minutes. Exceptions to the 25-minute minimum requirement can be requested for programmatic reasons and may be granted with the approval of the appropriate administrator. Office hours may not be scheduled during class breaks or during passing times as published in the schedule of classes. In the case where a contract/regular unit member is scheduled to teach less than five (5) days per week, the five required office hours per week shall be held over a minimum of four (4) days per week. In the case where a unit member teaches an evening class as part of his/her load on the same day as he/she teaches a day class, office hours shall be scheduled that are contiguous to both the day and evening offerings. Therefore, such a unit member may hold two office hours on one day, one near the daytime class(es) and the other near the evening class(es). Evening is defined as a class that starts at or after 5 p.m. A unit member who teaches an off-campus class as part of a regular load will hold an office hour contiguous to the off-campus offering. Pursuant to this article, faculty may not be required to hold an office hour five (5) days per week. However, contract/regular faculty must attend division, department and shared governance meetings which can be scheduled Monday through Friday.
        • 11.1.3.3.2 Contract/regular and adjunct unit members who teach less than full-time shall schedule and hold the same ratio of office hours as their teaching assignment bears to a full time assignment. Faculty with non-teaching assignments are not required to hold office hours for those assignments.
        • 11.1.3.3.3 Regular and contract unit members who receive an overload teaching assignment shall hold prorated office hours for that assignment in addition to the those required pursuant to Article 11.1.3.3.1
      • 11.1.3.4 Posting
        All contract/regular and adjunct classroom instructors shall post their schedule of office hours electronically and on, or adjacent to, their office doors or in the division office. If unit members are not in their offices during office hours, they shall post where they will be in an instructional area. Once the teaching assignment has been determined for the next semester, each unit member's class and office hour schedule shall be submitted to the appropriate administrator no later than the first day of each term.
      • 11.1.3.5 Rescheduling
        With advance approval of the appropriate administrator, unit members may reschedule office hours as necessary. Such changes shall be posted on their office doors with their schedule of office hours, and a copy shall be given to the appropriate administrator.
    • 11.1.4 No unit member shall be required to have fewer than twelve (12) hours from the end of one day's work to the beginning of the next.

The schedule shall be in accordance with the standard workload provisions.
      • 11.1.5.2 The appropriate administrator shall make the final schedule offerings and assignments after reviewing the proposed schedules.
      • 11.1.5.3 In the event the appropriate administrator determines that a regular or contract unit member's proposed schedule must be modified, the appropriate administrator shall meet with the unit member and explain the modification.
