Actual CBA Language (as of 07/01/2011):     


Horizontal placement and movement on the salary schedule shall be based upon academic semester units earned (quarter units taken shall be multiplied by two-thirds to arrive at the equivalent number of semester units, and fractions shall be rounded off to the nearest whole number). To be credited for salary purposes, all units must be in the unit member's current credential field, enhance classroom instruction, be applicable to the unit member’s current assignment, or apply towards a new credential field. Credit will not be granted for duplication of prior course work unless specifically approved in advance. In addition, units must qualify under one of the following categories:

                  a.   Degree-eligible, graduate level, university-granted units, following award of a bachelor’s level degree. A unit member need not be applying for a graduate degree to count units toward salary schedule movement, but the units must be of a type that could be counted toward such a degree. No pre-approval shall be required and no limit shall apply to such units.

b.   Undergraduate lower and upper division degree-eligible units, following award of a bachelor’s level degree, but only as may be pre-approved by the District for the particular unit member in question.

c.   Units awarded for courses, programs, or workshops taken in a pre-designated “District Sponsored” course, as may be offered by the District, County, or other organizations, without limitation and without pre-approval. The District shall maintain a list of such courses within Human Resources.

d.   Course work that provides Continuing Education Units or professional growth/development hours, that are not degree eligible but nonetheless contribute to improved practice, skills, and knowledge, provided that such units must be pre-approved, that no more than two units will be credited for any single conference course, that attendance must be verified by a log sheet showing time, dates, and titles of all sessions attended, that the unit member submits a one-paragraph summary of each session describing its value, and subject to a limit of no more than 15 such units total for any unit member.
