Faculty Availability-Preference Form

August 14, 2019

According to the LRCFT 2017-2020 contract 4.10.3 and 4.10.6, Adjunct and Full-time Faculty must complete and return the Instructor Availability Form P-203 to their respective area office deans once a year.

Faculty must submit an availability form to the area office for each semester in order to be considered for adjunct or overload teaching assignments. This form assists the area dean and department chair in ascertaining faculty availability should a future assignment become available. The area offices and centers distribute availability forms to all active faculty each year, per the LRCFT Contract, and are due back to the division office the fourth Friday in October. If faculty receive forms at the Center where they are teaching, they should send their completed form to the appropriate division dean at the college.

The form (Faculty Eligibility/Preference Form (P-203)) is available in the Area Dean’s office and on the Los Rios Human Resources’ Forms webpage at: http://web.losrios.edu/hr/forms/FacultyAvailabilityPreferenceFormP-203.pdf.

The American River College completion and submission process for the Instructor Availability Form P-203 (Faculty Eligibility/Preference Form) is as follows:

  1. American River College Faculty should provide their area dean with three forms for each of the next summer, next fall, and year-later spring semesters, e.g. SU20, F20, and SP21. The area offices will forward an email each year in September to remind faculty of this process.
  2. The American River College due date for the completion and return of these forms to the area office is the fourth Friday in October. This date is not printed on the form so it is important to follow this campus due date.
  3. Before the above due date faculty will use the link provided above and go online and complete three forms (one for each of next Summer, next Fall, and the following year Spring) and return them to the area office by the due date. (Paper copies of this form may still be provided to their faculty to be completed. The online form can be printed out or emailed to the area office after completion.)
  4. The area office will keep the forms on file as record of availability and preference for each faculty whether for adjunct or overload assignments.

Thank you and if you have any questions, please contact the Instruction Office at 916-484-8478.
