Unfortunately position for the El Monte Educational Center Coordinator was unable to be filled during the DAP selection process.

In an attempt to understand the complexity of the DAP selection process the district sought to established an organized review of the process.

Over the course of several months the Office of Academic Affairs in collaboration with representatives of President’s Cabinets, RHCFA, Academic Senate and other faculty and deans broke the review down in four major steps.

Consistency of position description was the first step in the process. Standardizing position description wherever possible swiftly followed the first step. Term lengths of positions was also discussed with the incorporation of two year cycles with staggered start dates.

Anticipated positions like Institutional Effectiveness Coordinator, Leadership Academy Coordinator, Basic Skills Coordinator, Staff Development/FLEX Coordinator, SWEC Coordinator, and SLO Coordinator are scheduled for next spring with position descriptions sometime in fall of 2014.
