Regular faculty members are encouraged to pursue opportunities for professional growth leading to the development of increased competence. These professional growth opportunities will focus primarily on the growth of the individual in order to maintain a dynamic faculty, one equipped with the mental and emotional tools to provide exceptional service to the students and the District in an era of constant change.

 

In accordance with the Agreement between the Ventura County Federation of College Teachers, AFT Local 1828, AFL-CIO, and the Ventura County Community College District, proposals for sabbatical leaves are evaluated by each college's Sabbatical Leave Committee and the District Sabbatical Leave Committee. The committees are charged with weighing the value of each request to the faculty member, the students, and the District. The District Sabbatical Committee forwards its recommendations to the Chancellor for review, who in turn submits the recommendations to the Board. Upon completion of the sabbatical leave, the faculty member submits a final report summarizing the results of their work to their College President, the Chancellor, and if requested, to the Board of Trustees.
