WHO SHOULD PARTICIPATE IN PROFESSIONAL DEVELOPMENT ACTIVITIES DAY?
Classified Professionals and Management Team:
All district offices are closed to the public while we continue working remotely and all employees are encouraged to participate as much as possible. The Plenary session will take place from 8:30-10:00am via a Zoom Webinar. Employees may select from a variety of workshops to attend during the remaining sessions and several pre-recorded workshops will also be available.
The 2020-21 PDA Days are Friday, August 14, 2020 and Thursday, February 11, 2021. These dates are mandatory attendance for full-time faculty.
Attendance & Verification
Faculty with semester length assignments are released from their regular duties to attend professional development activities and are paid for attendance. Attendance verification is required by the Chancellor’s Office. To complete your flex credit verification AFTER completion of an approved activity, click on this link to go to your Faculty Portal to record your Flex credit.
Faculty members may not choose to perform other district activities in lieu of attendance at PDA Day activities without approval from the Vice President, Academic Affairs/Assistant Superintendent. There will be no make up for activities missed. A Notice of Absence (NOA) form must be filed by May 25, 2021, if absent.
Adjunct Faculty (including Unit A):
Adjunct Faculty are welcome and encouraged to attend PDA Day, but attendance is not mandatory. If you have a faculty flex requirement for the Spring 2021 semester, this event can be used towards that flex requirement (a completed electronic verification form is necessary to receive credit), but if your class is cancelled or your requirement changes for any reason, you may end up not being paid for this day.
Adjunct faculty flex obligations are equal to the total number of hours taught in full-semester classes on Tuesday, Thursday, and/or Friday during the Spring 2021 semester.
Sign Language Interpretation Services
Employees who are in need of sign language interpreter services or assistance on PDA Day, are asked to contact Disability Resources at least one week in advance.
