PD, Flex & Title 5
As a Professional Development practitioner, you have likely used the FLEX Guidelines or Title 5 language in your work. Have you ever thought they could use some updating to clarify the expectations and be more equitable for all employees? We have! The FLEX Guidelines were originally developed in 1993 and the most recent update is from 2007, and Title 5 language dates back to 1991 with some parts as recent as 2007.
This work group is rolling up their sleeves, collaborating with the Chancellor's office and other key stakeholders to change the FLEX Guidelines and how the CCC prioritizes professional learning for all employees.
Contact Work Team captains and 4CSD Board Members, Chris Franz and Natalie Halsell, to get involved with this team.
