Guidelines for Alternate (In-Lieu) Flex Days

Proposals for flex activities that would not occur on the specified flex calendar days should focus on critical departmental, school, or college needs.

Staff development activities may be performed on not more than two (2) non-instructional day(s) in lieu of performing such activities on the scheduled flex days. (CCFA Article 17, Section 17.4(e), page 33)

Approved alternate (in-lieu) flex activities must take place within the academic calendar year but on non-service days.  Approved activities may replace the scheduled January 11, 2008 flex day.  Flex credit cannot be banked.

All proposals for alternate (in-lieu) flex activities should be submitted as early as possible and at least two (2) weeks prior to any alternate (in lieu) flex day.  Only complete proposals can be considered.  See “How to Submit an Alternate (In-Lieu) Flex Schedule Proposal for Friday, January 11, 2008” for details.

It is the responsibility of the dean/first-level manager to make the determination in consultation with the faculty member as to whether an activity will qualify for flex credit.  The dean/first-level manager will be responsible for monitoring the outcomes for compliance and accountability.

Clear documentation of activity outcomes needs to be submitted to the dean/first-level manager within four (4) weeks of the completed alternate (in-lieu) flex activity.  If a faculty member is unable to complete either the approved flex activity or the outcomes report by this deadline he/she must submit an absence form indicating either illness or personal necessity.
