Substitutes are assigned by the cluster chairperson whenever possible. You will need to complete an illness card each day you are absent. There are different types of cards that need to be filled out depending upon whether your absence was due to sickness, personal emergency, etc. Absence cards and forms can be obtained from your cluster office. You can obtain further information from the personnel clerk in the Business Office. Also, if you are absent for more than five consecutive days due to illness, an illness card must be signed by your attending physician in order for you to receive your regular pay. If you are absent over twenty consecutive working days, you will need to complete a leave of absence form and have it signed by your cluster chairperson and the vice-president of academic affairs. These forms can be obtained from the personnel clerk.

 

Student -- Accurate and timely records of attendance are required by state laws and districtregulations. TheAttendanceAccounting and Grading Procedures Manual covers attendance regulations. You can obtain this Manual from the Office of Academic Affairs. Students should be made aware of the policy on absences, tardiness, and exclusion. The policy is in the Schedule of Classes.

 

ACADEMIC AFFAIRS

 

The Off ice of Academic Aff airs is responsible f or the credit, non-credit, and community services offerings of the college. The Off ice of the Vice-president of Academic Affairs is headed by a vice-president, who is assisted by three academic deans. The instructional departments are supervised by two cluster chairpersons who report to the vice-president.

 

ACADEMIC RANK

 

Academic rank is determined by the Academic Rank Committee, chaired by a faculty member, according to defined criteria of time in rank, credits or degrees earned, and service perf ormed.

 

ACADEMIC SENATE

 

The college Academic Senate is the governing body of the LAMC faculty, The senate, composed of elected representatives from the clusters, the Counseling Department, and the Library/Learning Resource Center, and other academic units, represents the faculty on all matters academic. Faculty are invited to attend meetings of the senate. Mission is also represented in the district and state academic senates.

 

ACCREDITATION

 

Mission College is accredited by the Western Association of Schools and Colleges.

 

ADMINISTRATIVE REGULATIONS

 

College -- The college administrative regulations are called the LAMC Administrative Procedures. These procedures are produced and distributed by the Office of Administrative Services/College Business Manager's Office. The Administrative Procedures Manual is divided into the following sections: Budget, Contracts, Facilities, Fiscal Office Procedures, Maintenance, Travel, Payroll, Personnel, Purchasing, Resources, Signature Authorizations, and Miscellaneous.

 

The LAMC Administrative Procedures tells you how to request non-instructional services, such as assignments, purchasing, budget changes, telephone changes, building and equipment repairs, key issuance, etc.

 

To obtain campus administrative procedures on any given subject, you may contact the department to which you report, or you may contact the Office of the College Business Manager. See OFFICES for a listing of college offices.

 

Disttict -- There are several sources for district administrative regulations and procedures. Following are the most commonly used:

 

Administrative Regulations and Procedures Board Rules Business Procedures Manual

Personnel Commission Laws and Rules Personnel Guides

 

Various offices throughout the campus have copies of some of the above manuals. The college business manager and the president have complete sets of them.

 

State -- See Califomia Administrative Code, Title V, located in the Library, the Business Office, and the Office of Academic Affairs.

 

ADMINISTRATIVE SERVICES

 

The Office of Administrative Services is headed by the college business manager, who is responsible for the following areas: buildings and grounds, fiscal services, personnel, campus security, and the Bookstore. Each of these areas is supervised by a classified manager. Activities which come under administrative services include: purchasing, contracts, budget preparation, budget changes, travel and mileage claims, and telecommunication management. The Business Office is the center for the collection and accounting (directly and/or indirectly) of all monies of the college. Students pay their registration, parking, student body fees, and transcript fees in this office.

 

Faculty and staff who wish to open a school departmental activity account (eg., Business Department Book Loan Fund) should obtain the appropriate form and procedures from the Business Office. Also, expense reimbursement checks are distributed through the Business Office.

 

ADMISSIONS AND RECORDS

 

The Office of Admissions and Recordstis responsible to several authorities for reporting the attendance data that instructors submit. Because attendance reports are audited and because they are the basis for most college funding, it is important that timely and accurate reports be submitted. The Attendance Accounting and Grading Procedures Manual is the primary source for regulations concerning attendance reporting. In addition, bulletins are issued during the year for emphasis and clarification and for the purpose of communicating new regulations. The primary value to the instructor of following the procedures carefully is the time and fuss saved in not having to go personally to Admissions to correct errors or clarify confusion.

 

Auditing of Classes -- See the College Catalog and the Schedule of Classes.

 

AFFIRMATIVE ACTION

 

A vigorous affirmative action policy is adhered to. For details, see the Catalog and amended board rule 101301.

ARTICULATION AGREEMENTS

 

Mission maintains articulation agreements with the University of California (UC) and with the California State University (CSU) system. The Dean of Evening and Saturday programs.serves as the Articulation Officer for the college.

 

 

ASSOCIATED STUDENT ORGANIZATION

 

See also STUDENT SERVICES. The Associated Student Organization is the primary campus association of students, open to registered students. It is governed by a constitution. The ASO Council has provided student representatives to various college committees, including selection committees for college administrators, the Mission Planning Advisory Committee (MPAC), and the Commencement Committee.

 

ATTENDANCE REPORTS

 

Attendance records are required by law and are covered in detail in Attendance Accounting and Grading Procedures Manual.

 

AUDIO-VISUAL

 

Films, projectors, radios, VCRs, etc. are supplied through the Audio-Visual Department. To obtain audio-visual equipment, a request should be submitted to the Audio-Visual Department. The request can be left in the A/V box on the main counter in the Library. A list of currently available equipment and a procedure concerning exactly how to request the use of this equipment can be obtained by contacting the Audio-Visual Department in the Campus Center. See also CURRICULUM AND INSTRUCTION.

 

 

 

BOOKSTORE

 

The Bookstore is located in the Campus Services Building.

 

Hours -- Normal hours are from 10:00 a.m. 7:00 p.m., Monday through Thursday and 9:00 a.m. - 4:00 p.m., Friday. Hours are extended during registration periods.

 

Ordering -- Textbooks and materials are specified by contract instructors and approved by the cluster chair and the vice-president of academic affairs. To order the books or instructional materials for a class, complete a Book Order Form which you can obtain from your cluster secretary. Submit the request for approval

through your cluster chairperson. Part-time faculty should direct book requests to the cluster chair for processing. See the Bookstore personnel to obtain desk copies.

 

Order all texts and supplies which students are to purchase through the LAMC Bookstore. It is illegal for instructors to otherwise manage the sale of texts for students.

 

Each term, the Bookstore publishes a list of deadlines for submission of purchasing requests for the next term, and it is important that the deadlines be met. Usually, delivery takes six to eight weeks. When instructional materials cannot be ordered on time, either the materials will not be in the Bookstore in time for the beginning of the next term, or the materials will be more expensive because of air freight costs. The earlier the orders are in, the more probable it is that the Bookstore can obtain used books that will be much less expensive for the students.

 

BUDGET

 

Accounting Reports -- Any faculty member can request accounting reports for his or her activity by simply requesting the reports from the budget off icer or the appropriate cluster chair. There are several types of reports available. The most frequently requested report is the Budget Status by Object report which lists the current budget, encumbrances and expenditures to date, and current balance available for all of the objects within an activity.

 

Account Summaries -- You may obtain Account Summary Reports--more commonly referred to as Budget Status Reports--for any program or activity for which you are responsible by simply requesting a report f rom your cluster chairperson. An Account Summary Report will give you revised final budget, current budget, current expenditures to date, current encumbrances, and current balance available for each activity/object combination within a program. If you are responsible for a specially funded program, please make your request through the appropriate dean.

 

The second most common report is a Data Base Extract report which is a detailed analysis of every transaction that has affected an account between two specified dates, available from the Business Office. When requesting a budget status report, you must merely specify the program, activity, and fiscal year from which you want the information. For the data base extract, you must specify a beginning date, ending date, and the full account description (A full account description means fund, program, activity, and object.)

 

Budget Information -- Faculty members can obtain budget information from their cluster chair. If a faculty member is responsible for a specially funded program outside of his or her cluster, the budget report can be requested directly from either academic affairs or administrative services. An account summary report can be requested that will show the budget encumbrances and expenses and current balance for all objects within an activity or a program. A data base extract can be requested that will show every transaction for a specific account, including, if specified, by a unique combination of fund, program, activity, and object codes.

 

Funding -- The college funding is of two types: unrestricted general fund and restricted funds, commonly called specially funded programs (SFPs).

 

The unrestricted general fund of the college is allocated to the college by the district based upon a combination of funding formulas. These funds come into the district from the state, and are based upon the Full Time Equivalent Student (FTES) count of the district, and other factors. From the funds the district receives from the state, allocations are made to the nine colleges plus the district office for the general operating expenses.

 

On a college campus, the unrestricted general fund basically pays for all operating expenses of the college including regular faculty, regular staff, facilities, etc.

in addition to the unrestricted general fund, the campus also receives funds from numerous specially funded programs. These programs range from a mere $2,000 up to over $1 million dollars. By definition, funds in these programs can be used only for the very specific purposes defined in the funding documents.

 

BUILDINGS AND GROUNDS

 

Buildings and Grounds is headed by the Building and Grounds Administrator. Maintenance and repairs are through his office, ext. 7763.

 

BUSINESS AND PROFESSIONAL CENTER The Business and Professional Center is a specially funded program to encourage liaison between the college and local industry. See also SPECIALLY FUNDED PROGRAMS.

 

BUSINESS OFFICE

Basically, the only solicitations that are permitted are those for either a charitable purpose or to benefit the Associated Student Organization. Otherwise, any solicitation or collection must have the prior written consent of the dean of students. That consent will be based upon proof that: the organization is registered with the state as a charitable organization; it will attest that the organization has received a copy of the college's rules concerning conduct by outside individuals; and that the organization agrees in writing to abide by those rules of conduct.

 

Under no circumstances may a faculty member allow an individual to enter the classroom for purposes of collections or solicitations, unless such individual has a written approval in hand from the vice-president of academic affairs.

Department, or the Library regarding computers for instructor and student use.

 

CONFERENCE ATTENDANCE

 

See also CURRICULUM AND INSTRUCTION. To attend a conference during your assignment period with the district, complete a Request for Conference or Activity Attendance form and have it approved by your cluster chair, the vice-president of academic affairs, and the college president regardless of whether you are asking to be reimbursed for any expenses of the conference or activity. Your application for the conference attendance should include an estimate of the cost and a copy of the flyer or agenda for the conference.

 

A specific staff improvement fund exists, administered by a staff development committee to disburse funds for conference attendance by staff members. To apply for those funds, complete the conference attendance request, have it approved by your cluster chair, and then have it submitted to the staff development committee.

 

If the Staff Development Committee does not approve reimbursement, or if it vyill not approve full reimbursement to you, there also exists a specific travel fund administered by the Academic Senate. To apply for these funds, obtain your cluster chairperson's signature on the approved conference request and forward it to the president of the Academic Senate. If the request cannot be funded by either or both of the above sources, it is virtually impossible to obtain conference or travel funds from the general purpose college budget.

 

Once a conference request is approved, it is possible to obtain an advance of a percentage of the estimated expenses of the conference, for which there is yet another form to fill out and submit a minimum of three weeks prior to the conference.

 

Save all receipts to be submitted, and complete the report form after attendance. See also Article 23B of the Contract.

 

COPYRIGHT LAWS

 

The copyright law of the United States (Title 17, United States Code) governs the making of photocopies and the reproduction of copyrighted material.

 

Under certain conditions specified in the law, libraries and archives are authorized to furnish a photocopy or other reproduction. One of these specified conditions is that the photocopy or reproduction is not to be "used for any purpose other than private study, scholarship, or research." If a user makes a request for, or later uses, a photocopy or reproduction for purposes in excess of "fair use," that user may be liable for copyright infringement.

 

This institution reserves the right to refuse to accept a copying order if, in its judgment, fulfillment of the order would involve violation of copyright law guidelines.

The college provides numerous services for students with special needs--the blind, deaf, non-ambulatory, etc. Contact the Special Education Office, ext. 7732, for information on those programs.

 

DISRUPTIVE STUDENT

 

Standards of student conduct and applicable penalties for violation are detailed in both the Schedule of Classes and the College Catalog. Familiarization with these standards will provide you with an understanding of your rights to temporarily exclude a disruptive student from your class. Your action must be reported to the vice-president of academic affairs as soon after the event as is reasonable. You should also meet with the vice-president to discuss the details of the particular problem. Other levels of disciplinary action require the involvement of campus or district administrators, and expulsion requires action of the Board of Trustees.

 

DROPPING STUDENTS FROM CLASS Instructors may approve student adds during the first two weeks of class; aafter that, an administrator's approval is required. Approval of an administrator is also required to drop without a penalty grade after the fourteenth week.

 

Students may be excluded when their absences exceed the number of hours the class meets each week. Whether you use this formula or one more liberal of your own design, inform the students in advance. Matters of this importance are best stated clearly in your class syllabus.

 

Students should be informed of the importance of using the official drop and add procedure to avoid grading complications at the end of the semester. That is, if the student doesn't drop officially and the instructor doesn't exclude the student, a letter grade other than W is required. See also Change of Program, page B-4, the Catalog.

 

DUPLICATION OF MATERIALS

 

For your convenience, there is a small copy machine located in each cluster office. These machines should not be used for more than five copies. If you need more than five copies, they should be taken to the Reprographics Department, hopefully, a day in advance of when you need them. If you need more than f ifty copies, you must take them to the Reprographics Department one day in advance, and you will need to have that request approved by your cluster chair in advance.

 

See COPYRIGHT LAWS for information on permission to reproduce copyrighted material.

 

If you have an extensive amount of copying you wish to hand out to your students, a syllabus should be prepared and given to the campus bookstore to reproduce and sell through the bookstore. Because of copying expenses, more than two or three handouts per semester should be sold as a syllabus rather than be given to students.

 

 

EDUCATION CODE

 

The Education Code governs the operation of the California education system, including the California Community Colleges. At the Mission College campus, there are three complete and up-to-date sets of the Education Code. One is located in the Library for your reference; one is in the Office of Academic Affairs; and another is in the Office of Administrative Services.

 

On questions concerning specific sections of the Education Code, please contact the vice-president of academic affairs when you are unable to answer your questions by first researching the reference copy located in the Library.

FACILITIES

 

Concern for the repair, maintenance and operations of the facilities is the responsibility of all members of the campus community. A faculty member is specifically responsible for turning the lights off when he or she leaves the classroom, and if the classroom has an individual air conditioning unit, turning it on the low setting when leaving the classroom. Additionally, any maintenance problems must be reported in writing to the building and grounds administrator so that those problems can be repaired--a hand-written note to that office will suffice.

 

FACULTY AND STAFF DEVELOPMENT A.B. 1725 calls for $5 million per year for California Community Colleges to be spent on professional growth programs. Mission College received $20,1 00 for the 1991-92 school year.

 

The Staff Development Advisory Committee, representing faculty, classified staff and administrators of Mission College, meets monthly to develop professional training programs, consider requests for proposals, and disperse funds.

 

 

The LAMC Staff Development Committee has adopted a policy that any permanent staff member (faculty, administration, classified) is entitled to a maximum of $500.00 per school year, first come first served, as long as there is funding available. Hourly faculty and nonpermanent staff are entitled to $250.00 per school year.

METROPOLITAN COLLEGE

 

From 1972 through 1983, the Los Angeles Community College District provided educational services to the Department of Defense personnel throughout the world.

A faculty member who is preparing material for publication (including TV) is advised to consider his or her rights under copyright laws.

Conflict of interest is a concern of both the general faculty and the institutional administration.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

PURCHASING

 

To purchase materials, supplies, or services, obtain a request form from your cluster secretary; then obtain approving signatures from the cluster chairperson and the vice-president of academic affairs, who will have the form routed to the business office. The single most important rule for a faculty member to adhere to is that each purchase must have prior approval and include the budget number to which the purchase is being assigned. Purchases made without the necessary approvals are outside of the college's authorization to make payment -the teacher is responsible personally for payment for such items.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

If you need something immediately, there is a procedure that your cluster chairperson can use, but it still requires that your cluster chair approve the purchase in advance.

SUMMER SESSION ASSIGNMENTS

 

Article 15 of the contract covers summer

 

session assignments.

Certain disabled students are allowed tape recorders in the classroom. Contact the DSPS office at ext. 7732 for specifics.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

TELEPHONE

 

Much of your time and college money will be saved by appropriate use of the telephone. Because the college is considered a business by General Telephone, every call is charged. Consult your Campus Telephone Directory. If you call campus from home frequently, a campus directory at home can speed up calls by enabling you to dial extensions directly.

This form may be submitted with the permanent roster at the conclusion of the semester or information may be transferred to the permanent roster. These forms are printed while students may still be registering for your class so you will have to enter their names.
