 Employment Contracts

All full-time, regular employees are hired by a term employment contract.


Employment Term

Administrative, professional support and classified staff employees are employed for a term not to exceed one fiscal year. However, depending on the length of service with the College and the category of the specific employment, professional support and classified staff employees may be hired for a two-year period. Probationary faculty is employed for a term not to exceed one academic year. Normally, the ending date of an annual non-faculty contract is August 31 and the ending date of a probationary faculty contract is the end of the spring semester.


Probationary Period

All full-time, non-faculty (administrative, professional support, and classified staff) employees begin their initial full-time employment with the District under a six-month probationary period. During this six-month period, employees will be evaluated by their supervisor at the end of the second and fourth months of employment. While on a probationary status, the employment relationship is not subject to the requirements of due process. The employee serves at the pleasure of the President of the College, has no property interest in the employment, and may be terminated for any reason not otherwise prohibited by law.

Continuing employees will automatically receive a new contract unless notice of non-renewal of contract is given in accordance with the following schedule:


  • Administrative and professional support staff

August 1

  • Classified staff

August 1

  • Probationary faculty - first year

  • Probationary faculty - subsequent years

Tenured Contract
