Flex Advisory Committee

The Flex Calendar Committee is a standing subcommittee of the Professional Development Committee. The purpose of the committee is to work with the Governance Council and Academic Senate to develop a flexible calendar program that provides faculty members with opportunities to participate in professional development activities. These activities should be related to “staff, student, and instructional improvement” (title 5, section 55720). This committee provides recommendations to the Professional Development Committee. The Flex Calender Committee is responsible for making recommendations on staff, student, and instructional improvement activities (Title 5, Section 55730(e)). The recommendations are based upon a comprehensive planning process that includes needs assessment and evaluation. The committee assists the flex coordinator in the tasks necessary for implementation of the flexible calendar program.
