arrow Previous bar Next arrow

In calculating full-time equivalent faculty (FTEF) attributable to full-time faculty, the following rules shall be applicable:

(a) With respect to instruction, FTEF shall be calculated based on the percentage of instructional hours per week considered a full-time assignment for regular instructional employees having comparable duties, excluding any noncredit instructional assignments.

(b) With respect to non-instructional activities, FTEF shall be calculated based on the percentage of working hours per week considered a full-time assignment for regular non-instructional employees having comparable duties.

(c) Regular Assignment. Include the regular assignment of full-time faculty as defined in section 53302.

(d) Overload. Exclude full-time faculty overload from the calculation of FTEF.

(e) Sabbatical. Include full-time faculty sabbatical FTEF, whether paid or unpaid, and exclude the FTEF of replacement faculty, whether full-time or part-time, from the computation to determine the full-time faculty percentage pursuant to section 53308.

(f) Released/Reassigned Time. Include FTEF for full-time faculty who are released or reassigned. The FTEF of a full-time faculty member on released or reassigned time shall be counted as if the faculty member was teaching/working full-time and had not been provided released or reassigned time. The FTEF of replacement faculty, whether full-time or part-time, shall be excluded from the computation to determine the full-time faculty percentage pursuant to section 53308.

(g) Unpaid Leave. Include unpaid leave FTEF for a faculty member on unpaid leave. The FTEF of a full-time faculty member on unpaid leave shall be counted as if the faculty member was teaching/working full-time and had not been provided with unpaid leave. The FTEF of replacement faculty, whether full-time or part-time, shall be excluded from the computation to determine the full-time faculty percentage pursuant to section 53308.

(h) Teaching by Others. Include credit instruction FTEF taught by classified staff or administrators who are appropriately qualified to teach, under the following conditions:

(1) Only the actual hours of teaching by such individuals shall be included in determining the FTEF; and

(2) The hours of teaching by such individuals must be part of a regular contract, and not taught as an overload assignment.

(i) Late Retirement. The FTEF of a faculty member who resigned or retired and who provided written notice thereof within 45 faculty duty days of the end of the previous Spring primary term and whose position has not been replaced by another full-time faculty member by the current Fall primary term, shall be included. The FTEF of replacement faculty, whether full-time or part-time, shall be excluded from the computation to determine the full-time faculty percentage pursuant to section 53308.

Districts are required to fill the position(s) by the following Spring primary term unless designees for the district governing board and academic senate jointly agree that it is in the best interests of the district to delay the filling of the position. In such cases, replacement must be made by the following primary term or the Chancellor shall reduce the district's state apportionment revenues for the current year in accordance with the provisions of section 51025. If the number of late retirees exceeds fifteen percent (15%) of the district's total number of full-time faculty, and the district's governing board and academic senate jointly agree, a district may file a request with the Chancellor's Office for a one-year extension to fulfill its hiring obligation to replace those retirees.

(j) Parcel Tax. Exclude FTEF of full-time faculty funded from temporary local sources as authorized by Government Code section 50079.1.
