All day faculty members.
By the end of the fifth week of classes, immediate supervisors are required to return all course materials to faculty along with the Checklist of Course Materials (Form XIII-E2). While these materials were in the possession of the immediate supervisor, the confidentiality of these materials should have been maintained and the employer should not have distributed these materials to anyone without your permission. It is a violation of the contract for the employer to place your course materials in the personnel file, to make additional copies for desk copies, or to distribute your course materials to FT and adjunct faculty.
If any of the 10 items listed on the checklist were missing or if the immediate supervisor had concerns, the faculty member should be notified and given an opportunity to submit materials or respond to the concerns within fourteen (14) calendar days. If the missing items and/or concerns are identified, I recommend that you respond in writing to the immediate supervisor with the updated or missing item(s) and provide your students with the updated information.
The intent of this 14 day response period serves two (2) purposes:
- To give the faculty member the opportunity to correct an oversight without a negative comment being placed in the summary evaluation.
- To insure that students have all of the items on the checklist.
NB: Please note that faculty have full freedom in the selection of course materials and if the faculty member believes that a directive from the immediate supervisor to change the course materials infringes upon academic freedom, then the faculty member has the right to initiate the grievance process. Faculty have full freedom in the selection of course materials.
