2006/07 Personnel Action Dates
To All Faculty, Staff, and Administrators:
In accordance with Sections 13.5, 14.5 and 15.4 of the Collective Bargaining Agreement, and upon the recommendation of the University Faculty Personnel Committee, I hereby approve the attached 2006/2007 dates for submission of periodic evaluations and performance reviews to the appropriate initiating unit personnel committee, college personnel committee, and the University Faculty Personnel Committee, as appropriate.
Please note that continuing probationary faculty who will be in the first year of a two-year reappointment will not be submitting a Working Personnel Action File during the 2006/2007 review cycle; rather, this group of probationary faculty will undergo a periodic evaluation which is due to the initiating unit personnel committee on March 2, 2007. All other continuing probationary faculty will undergo a full performance review and shall submit a Working Personnel Action file according to the attached schedule, with the first set due to the initiating unit personnel committee on August 30, 2006.
A further explanation to the new format of the 2006/2007 Personnel Action Dates appears on the schedule. This format change was precipitated by revisions to Appendix J.
The periodic evaluation of tenured faculty (post-tenure review) shall occur at intervals of no greater than five years. The deadline for post-tenure review is established at the college level, but should be completed no later than April 6, 2007. The deadline for periodic evaluation of temporary faculty is established at the department level, but should be completed no later than April 20, 2007. The periodic evaluation schedule for coaching faculty is as established in Appendix M.
The evaluation review process is scheduled on the basis of unalterable notification deadlines established by the CSU-CFA Collective Bargaining Agreement. The deadlines are intended to allow sufficient time for careful review at each level, and they cannot be extended. Questions regarding the personnel action dates or the evaluation process may be directed to Academic Personnel Services, extension 5086.
PERSONNEL ACTION DATES 2006-2007
Revised: May 5, 2006 1
The 2006-2007 personnel action dates schedule has a new format. Due dates are established by the personnel action rather than years of service.
• New faculty appointed Fall 2006 and continuing probationary faculty in the first year of a two-year reappointment shall complete a periodic evaluation during 2006-2007. Due dates for periodic evaluations are below.
• Continuing probationary faculty who are subject to a full performance review, that is, submission of a WPAF, shall submit their files on either August 30, 2006 or September 18, 2006, depending upon the requested personnel action.
• Tenured faculty seeking promotion shall submit their WPAF on October 16, 2006. The complete retention/tenure/promotion schedule is on page 2.
• Temporary faculty seeking range elevation shall submit their file on January 16, 2007. The complete range elevation schedule is below.
The review of a Professional Development Plan (PDP) is not a personnel action. Therefore, it does not appear on this schedule. However, PDPs are an important component of the periodic evaluation. Since the periodic evaluation schedules commence at the start of spring semester, Colleges should ensure that the PDP process is completed by December 15, 2006.
Continuing probationary faculty should refer to their 2005-2006 reappointment letter to determine whether they should undergo either a periodic evaluation (short review) or a performance review (WPAF) in 2006-2007. Please contact Academic Personnel Services, extension 5086, if you have any questions regarding the 2006-2007 Personnel Action Dates.
Please refer to the Humboldt State University Faculty Handbook, Appendix J, to review the criteria, policies, and procedures for Retention, Tenure, and Promotion of probationary/tenured faculty; or Appendix K for the criteria and processes by which temporary faculty may apply for elevation in range.
