Hiring Priorities Timeline:
1.    At least once a year, typically by October 15, each Deans/Associate Deans on the Faculty Hiring Priorities Committee will present to the Faculty Hiring Priorities Committee their writ-ten recommendations for new or replacement probationary full-time faculty positions for the following year. If a new or replacement faculty request has ongoing categorical funding the position will not be ranked through this process, but may be approved by the Superintendent/President.
 
a.    Each recommendation will be accompanied by justifications based upon Program Re-view, Annual Area Plans, discussions with the appropriate area coordinator and discipline faculty, statistical data, and a review by the Division faculty.
 
b.    From these recommendations, the Faculty Hiring Priorities Committee will use the Hiring Priorities Screening Rubric to create an initial prioritized hiring list for the following year. This list will include the ranking for all initial requests for replacements and new positions. This list will not carry over from year to year and will consist of an initial prioritized ranking.
 
c.    Within 5 days from the date the Faculty Hiring Priorities Committee creates the prioritized hiring list, the Faculty Hiring Priorities Committee will forward the draft of the prioritized Faculty Position Hiring List to the Academic Senate.
 
d.    At the next Academic Senate meeting from the date in paragraph “c” above, the Academic Senate will review the draft of the Faculty Position Hiring List and hear a report from the faculty representatives to verify that the Faculty Hiring Priorities Committee followed approved procedure in establishing this list.
 
                                             i.    If the Academic Senate determines that the procedure was correctly followed, the Academic Senate President will notify the Faculty Hiring Priorities Committee and no further Academic Senate action is needed.
 
                                         ii.    If the Academic Senate determines that the procedure was incorrectly followed, the Academic Senate President will notify the Superintendent/President and the Faculty Hiring Priorities Committee immediately following the meeting. The Academic Senate President will present an explanation to the Superintendent/ President. The Faculty Hiring Priorities Committee will then re-prioritize according to step 1b.
 
e.    Within 5 days from the date the Academic Senate confirms that the procedure was followed, the Faculty Hiring Priorities Committee will forward the draft of the prioritized Faculty Position Hiring List to the Superintendent/President. The Superintendent/President and the President's Cabinet will review the recommended draft of the Faculty Position Hiring List and the Cabinet will have input. The President's prioritized list will then be forwarded to the Academic Senate as an information item no less than 5 days before it is presented to the Governing Board, typically no later than the January meeting. If the Superintendent/President changes the ranking, an explanation will be presented with the reprioritized list.
 
2.    If additional vacant positions occur throughout the year due to retirement, resignation or termination, the appropriate Dean, in consultation with the area faculty, may recommend that the position(s) be replaced.
 
3.    If a replacement recommendation is proposed, the Faculty Hiring Priorities Committee shall edit the most recent version of the Faculty Position Hiring List to exclude the positions that the District has either hired, is in the process of hiring or has committed to hiring the present academic year. Then, the new proposed position(s) should be added to this revised list and the entire revised list shall be reprioritized.
 
4.    Each recommendation will be accompanied by updated justifications based upon Program Review, Annual Area Plans, discussions with the appropriate area coordinator and discipline faculty, statistical data, and a review by the Division faculty.
 
5.    Then the procedures outlined in Section 1 beginning with subsection “c” shall be repeated.
