The Board of Trustees is responsible for the employment and discharge of all personnel. To carry out this responsibility, it delegates to the President the function of establishing and implementing a program of personnel assessment, consistent with employment contracts and negotiated agreements.
It is the purpose of the program of staff assessment to:
strive for the improvement of the total College program;
stress the importance of personal improvement on the part of individual professional staff members so that each student may be provided a quality education;
ensure the continuous improvement of administrative and supervisory services provided professional staff members; and
establish a process of continuous and systematic professional staff member evaluation.
The staff evaluation program shall aim at the early identification of specific areas in which the individual professional staff member needs help so that appropriate assistance may be provided or arranged for. A supervisor offering suggestions for improvement to a professional staff member shall not release that professional staff member from the responsibility to improve. If a professional staff member after receiving a reasonable degree of assistance fails to perform his/her assigned responsibilities in a satisfactory manner, dismissal or non-renewal procedures may be invoked. In such an instance, all relevant evaluation documents may be used in the proceedings.
Evaluations shall be conducted of each professional staff member. A professional staff member shall be given a copy of any document relating to his/her performance which is to be placed in his/her personnel file.
