Revision Summary:

Responsible Official: Chancellor; Vice President, Administrative Services


To pursue an advanced degree, regular full-time faculty members may request half-time or more leave, with proportional reduction in salary. If such educational leave for faculty development is recommended by the college president/ceo and approved by the KCTCS Chancellor, the faculty members shall be entitled to normal faculty benefits and privileges during the period of temporary change in status. Although a period of educational leave shall not be credited toward eligibility for sabbatical leave, it shall not be considered as an interruption of continuous service. Also, for tenure-track faculty members, such a period of educational leave shall not be counted as probationary period service.
