In 1995 the DCCCD Chancellor’s Cabinet recognized that in order for PSSA Presidents to perform their duties in a professional and diligent manner, they would have to spend time, on a weekly basis away from the duties of their respective DCCCD jobs. As a result, the Chancellor’s Cabinet agreed to help support each of the eleven (11) PSSA Presidents by providing either:
(1) monetary compensation for additional hours worked, or
(2) a student assistant to help manage the additional work load.
There was no specific, across the board method proposed or established; this was left to each location CEO (i.e., campus president) to determine. Being such, no consistency in process or procedure was practiced district-wide.
The Following revised process is effective beginning spring 2012:
Location CEO/Budget Officer
It is recommended each year that all DCCCD locations include in their budget preparation a minimal amount of financial support to compensate their location’s PSSA President for extra service via an extra service agreement (if mutually agreed upon) for additional hours worked on behalf of the location’s PSS Association.
Each PSSA President will meet with their location CEO at least once each semester to determine what resources are needed to best accomplish the location PSS association’s work.
At each location the CEO and the location PSSA President will make the mutual decision to either award an extra service contract for the semester or to determine if some other option, such as release time or comp time may be agreed upon in support of that location’s PSS work.
If it is determined that the best option to accomplish the location’s PSS goals is an extra service contract, the following rules will prevail:
If comp or release time is mutually agreed upon in support of that location’s PSS work the following rules will apply:
While the same guidelines above apply to the PSSA President, he/she will meet with the Chancellor/Vice Chancellor’s at least once each semester to determine what/if resources are needed to, best accomplish the PSS association’s work. Extra service compensation for the PSSEC is limited to one-hundred hours per academic year. Hours beyond one-hundred (100) require negotiation with the Chancellor.
