Professional Growth Program

Please also refer to the current CSEA contract.

Professional Growth Program:

It shall be the policy of the Board of Trustees to encourage continued and active participation on the part of all classified employees in professional growth activities designed to improve service to the District.

Professional Growth activities may be District-sponsored activities held outside of regular assignment and educational activities of other agencies.

Credit for participation in these activities shall be reflected in an earned professional growth increment as approved by the Board.

Professional Growth is being developed if:

  • The experience reflects increased knowledge, understanding, and skills in the participant's regular assignment; or in an assignment that is included within the employee's classification groupings (i.e., related classifications as in higher classifications.)
  • The Professional Growth experience results in professional development manifested by an increase in knowledge, skills, alertness and a better ability to respond to the needs of the District, its students and the community.

Employees Eligible to Participate in the Professional Growth Program:

  • Individual must be a permanent employee.
  • Employee must be in a paid status upon completion of a segment.
  • Any employee enrolled in the Professional Growth Program who has terminated his/her employment with the District and is re-employed within thirty-nine (39) months on a regular basis may resume his/her Professional Growth Program in order to complete that segment, and use all points earned prior to the date of termination.

The Imperial Community College District is committed to the principles of equal employment opportunity and will implement a comprehensive program to put those principles into practice. It is the District's policy to ensure that all qualified applicants for employment and employees have full and equal access to employment opportunity, and are not subjected to discrimination in any program or activity of the District on the basis of ethnic group identification, race, color, national origin, religion, age, sex, gender identity, physical disability, mental disability, ancestry, sexual orientation, language, accent, citizenship status, transgender status, parental status, marital status, economic status, veteran status, medical condition, ancestry, political or organizational affiliation, or on the basis of these perceived characteristics, or based on association with a person or group with one or more of these actual or perceived characteristics. The District will strive to achieve a workforce that is welcoming to men, women, persons with disabilities and individuals from all ethnic and other groups to ensure the District provides an inclusive educational and employment environment. Such an environment fosters cooperation, acceptance, democracy and free expression of ideas.
