Flex Obligations for 2007-2008
There are five (5) flex days in the 2007-2008 academic calendar: Monday and Tuesday, August 20 and 21;
Friday, November 9; and Thursday and Friday, January 17 and 18. All flex obligations are on “flexible time”;
however, all faculty are encouraged to attend Opening Day activities on Monday, August 20. Tuesday, August
21, may be used for on-campus or off-campus flex activities.
Faculty can meet their flexible time obligation of 25 hours by participating in staff, student, and instructional
improvement activities of their choice. These activities may be conducted at any time during the fiscal year
between July 1, 2007, and June 30, 2008, outside of regularly scheduled workdays/hours. Five hours of
professional improvement activities equal one flex day. Activities will be self-certified, reported on the form
below, and submitted to the Division Dean upon completion. It is vitally important that the reporting form be
completed. Failure to do so can result in the loss of time or wages, e.g., paid or unpaid leave.
Post-retirement and hourly faculty who are scheduled to teach during the day on Mondays and/or Tuesdays in the
Fall Semester 2007, or Thursdays and/or Fridays in the Spring Semester 2008 may report flex activities up to the
total number of hours normally worked on that day(s) in order to receive compensation. Those flex activities may
be conducted at any time during the fiscal year between July 1, 2007, and June 30, 2008, outside of regularly
scheduled workdays. Additional hours will not be compensated. In addition to the reporting form, hourly faculty
must submit a time sheet to the Division Dean in order to receive pay.
Attached is a guide to the types of activities that can be used to meet the “flexible-time” obligation. The list is not
comprehensive but does serve as a guide. Check with your campus Academic Senate president if you are in doubt
about a given activity.
Please use the following Reporting Form to record flex activities. If you have questions, please direct them to
your AS president or your Division Dean.
You can download the reporting form from the District Academic Senate website at:
Please return this form to your Division Office no later than the end of business on May 30, 2008.
