The Committee works in cooperation with the Staff Development Committee in implementing the college professional development program under the collective bargaining agreement. The Committee plans Professional Development Days, and intersession programs, evaluates and approves agreements, individual projects, and contract completion forms, approves presenter proposals, and recommends speakers for special programs with the approval of the Senate. [Academic Senate Constitution and By-Laws, Article XIV, Section 10.]
The mission of the Professional Development program is to create and promote opportunities for faculty, staff, and administrators to engage in continuous learning, professional growth, and personal enhancement leading to student success. The district commits the necessary resources to support professional development efforts on all the campuses.
Professional development activities at LAHC are approved by the Professional Development/FLEX Coordinator in conjunction with the Professional Development committee. The committee is under the direction of Academic Senate, Education code, Title 5, and guidelines developed by the California Community College Chancellor’s Office.
The Professional Development (FLEX) Committee meets on the 4th Wednesday of each month at 12:00 PM in the Professional Learning Center (PLC)/Science Complex 201.
