Teaching an Extra Quarter Assignment.   

arrow Previous bar Next arrow

(a) As used in this Section, the term "extra quarter assignment" means an assignment given to an academic employee to teach full-time or put-time within the employee's four quarter period, a quarter other than one of the quarters which comprise the employee's academic year.

(b) In exceptional instances when the needs of the campus require it, an academic year employee may teach an extra quarter assignment. The employee will not, as a general policy, teach more than six consecutive quarters, and, subject to the exception in subdivision (e) (1), shall not teach more than the equivalent of seven consecutive full-time quarters in the California State University.

(c) No academic year employee shall teach an extra quarter assignment unless the employee agrees to do so.

(d) When an academic year employee teaches an extra quarter assignment, the employee may elect whether the work shall be for extra compensation or for a quarter off at a later date. Service for a quarter off at a later date must be full time for the entire quarter. The employee shall make the election by notifying the campus in the form and in the manner and by the time prescribed by the president.

(e) An academic year employee may teach extra quarter assignments either for extra compensation or for a compensating quarter off at a later date provided that:

(1) For extra compensation-the employee's teaching, including teaching pursuant to this subdivision (e), shall not exceed the equivalent of one quarter for extra compensation nor more than the equivalent often quarters during any triad. An exception may be granted by the campus president if an eleventh quarter assignment is essential to the offering of required instruction. No service credit for tenure, retirement, sabbatical leave, sick leave, or seniority, will be earned during this extra quarter; and

(2) For a compensating quarter off at a later date-the employee's teaching, including teaching pursuant to this subdivision (e), subject to the exception in subdivision (e) (1), shall not exceed the equivalent of ten quarters during any triad. Such compensating quarter off will normally be taken during the employee's next succeeding academic year, but may, with the approval of the campus president or designee, be taken at a later time within 36 months of the completion of the extra quarter of service. No service credit for tenure, retirement, sabbatical leave, sick leave or seniority shall accrue during the period of the extra quarter assignment, but shall accrue with respect to the paid time taken as a compensating quarter off, in the same manner as though the employee had taught during the period of such compensating time off rather than during the period of the extra quarter assignment.

(f) As used in this article, the terms "teach" and "teaching" shall include service during a period of sabbatical leave taken pursuant to Article 5 (commencing with Section 43000) and service while on a special leave for research or creative activity, taken pursuant to Article 5.1 (commencing with Section 43050).
