516.000 Appendix A - Evaluation of Non-Lecturer Unit 18 Appointees

UCSC:APO rev 1/04

A. EVALUATION OF NON-LECTURER UNIT 18 APPOINTEES, INCLUDING COORDINATORS OF FIELD WORK, SUPERVISORS OF TEACHER EDUCATION, AND TEACHER-SPECIAL PROGRAMS

The language of the Unit 18 MOU tends to concentrate on the terms and conditions of employment of those bargaining unit members whose principal duties involve classroom instruction. This may lead to some ambiguity regarding evaluation criteria for those unit members whose principal duties are other than traditional classroom instruction (e.g., Coordinators of Field Work, Supervisors of Teacher Education, and Teacher Special Programs).

However, Article 7 of the MOU does provide general statements of the policies governing appointments and reappointments of all Unit 18 titles and this article is sufficiently broad to adequately describe the general policy that covers unit members whose primary duties are classroom instruction and those who are not primarily assigned to the classroom.

Article 7 of the MOU and CAPM 516.000 give examples of appropriate measures of instructional performance, types of evidence to be used in the evaluation process, and list a number of qualities to be evaluated for both Pre-Six Year and Continuing Appointees in the bargaining unit. The list of qualities to be evaluated tends to concentrate on issues of instructional performance of classroom teachers. This list is clearly a list of examples and is not exhaustive; additional qualities may be defined that are appropriate to the evaluation of unit members whose duties are other than classroom instruction. So as to provide guidance for the review and evaluation of unit members whose duties are other than classroom instruction, additional examples of criteria and evidence to be evaluated for Coordinators of Field Work and Supervisors of Teacher Education are provided in Section B below, while the same is provided for Teacher Special Programs in Section C below.
