YCCD Strategic Professional Development
The college has identified several sources of funds for professional development for faculty, professional support staff and administrators. Professional Development is strategically and frequently offered for staff, faculty and administrators and is aligned with the college's strategic goals, needs and priorities identified in integrated plans, program review, and other intentional processes. Many of these professional developed opportunities are funded by Guided Pathways. Some of these projects include but are not limited to:
Teaching, Learning, and Community Activities
- POP Peer Observation Pool
- Teaching Test Kitchen
- Independent Professional Development Conference or Project
An online submission form will soon be created for conference attendance or independent projects. Approval must be obtained in advance to access professional development funds. Upon approval, the funds may be expended through direct payments (reimbursed by receipt) and/or normal district pre-pay and purchasing procedures. While there is no cost limit per project or conference, applicants should review the overall budget and submit reasonable requests.
The YFA Contract includes YCCD-YFA Approved Guidelines for Professional Improvement information and request forms.
Faculty must obtain approval before engaging in Professional Improvement activities to count those hours toward pay column advancement.
