Every district must have an equivalency process, and the determination of equivalency is the purview of the academic senate. Regulations do not provide additional guidelines for what constitutes at least equivalent; however, each district’s governing board, acting on the advice of its academic senate, must establish its standard for equivalency, permitted the standard is not less than qualifications specified on the Disciplines List (most disciplines can be found in Minimum Qualifications for Faculty and Administrators in California Community Colleges). This paper provides recommendations for the determination of equivalencies, including who determines equivalency, that equivalency is granted for a discipline (not a course), that policies and procedures must be consistent, objective, evidence based, and mindful of general education and specialization, and that local governing boards include action on the equivalency as part of their subsequent hiring action. This paper also provides a proposed equivalency model as well as a legal opinion stating that local districts are not authorized to establish a single course equivalency. http://www.asccc.org/sites/default/files/equivalency_paper.pdf     Attribution-NoDerivs CC BY-ND Creative Commons License Information
