Part-Time Faculty Office Hours Program
Education Code sections 87880 through 87885 establish the Community College Part-Time Faculty Office Hours Program to encourage community college districts to compensate part-time faculty who hold office hours related to their teaching load. To establish a program, a district must negotiate with the exclusive bargaining representative or with faculty, if there is no bargaining unit. Part-time faculty participating in the program must be compensated for at least one office hour for every two or more classes taught per week or 40 percent of the district-defined full-time load. Part-time faculty may receive office time compensation for each 20% of the district-defined full-time faculty load.

Districts participating in the program annually report the number of eligible part-time faculty, number of eligible office hours, and total compensation for office hours to the Chancellor’s Office for reimbursement of no more than 50 percent of the total cost of the program.

Education Code requires that Part-Time Faculty Office Hours claim forms be submitted no later than June 1 of each year.

Part-Time Faculty Health Insurance Program
Education Code sections 87860 through 87868 establish the Part-Time Community College Faculty Health Insurance Program to encourage community college districts to offer health insurance for part-time faculty. For this program, part-time faculty are those with assignments equal to or greater than 40 percent of a full-time assignment. The program does not cover the cost of dental or vision premiums. Districts that establish a program must negotiate with the exclusive bargaining representative the share of the premium payments not covered by the state.

Districts participating in the program report the number of participants and cost of premiums to the Chancellor’s Office for reimbursement of no more than 50 percent of the district’s total cost of the program.

Education Code requires that Part-Time Faculty Health Insurance claim forms be submitted no later than June 1 of each year.
