Part-Time Faculty Programs

Education Code Sections 87860-87868 provides for a part-time faculty health benefits program and Education Code Sections 87880-87885 provides for a part-time faculty office hours program. All districts are eligible to submit claims for funds. However, the terms in the Budget Act limit the reimbursements to no more than 50 percent of the claim. Additionally, when statewide claims total more than the appropriated amounts, all claims are prorated.

In addition to the above programs, the annual Budget Act appropriates $24.9M for the express purpose of making part-time faculty salaries more comparable to full-time salaries for similar work.
