Dual Credit Instructor Non-Compliance Process:

 

Mineral Area College (MAC) Dual Credit Instructor Non-Compliance Process –


MAC dual credit instructors are strongly encouraged to attend the joint professional development day each fall.  In addition, site visits with department chairs are conducted the first year of teaching dual credit and every other year after. 
New dual credit instructors must complete the initial individual discipline specific site visit prior to the school year or course starting.  New dual credit instructors will also be strongly encouraged to attend the joint professional development day in the fall. 
If veteran dual credit instructors are on the rotation list for a site visit that academic year, and do not attend the professional development day, they must complete a site visit with their respective department chair.  The process for veteran instructors is as follows:

  • Dual credit coordinator attends first department chair meeting and distributes site visit list to all department chairs with dual credit instructor contact information.
  • Site visits are coordinated via email or phone contact by department chairs.
  • After professional development day is complete, the dual credit coordinator ensures the department chairs are aware of any veteran dual credit instructors under their department, who is mandated a visit for that year via the rotation list.  These instructors must have a site visit completed, because they were unable to attend the event on campus. 
  • After one week that the MAC department chair has made contact with the veteran dual credit instructor and receives no contact, they notify the dual credit coordinator.
  • The dual credit coordinator makes contact with the building principal to assist the department chair in scheduling site visit.
  • If a site visit still is not coordinated, the dual credit coordinator sends notice to building principal and dual credit instructor in writing suspending any future dual credit offerings by the instructor until a site visit is complete.
