Full-time and part-time faculty members must meet the criteria established by the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools and/or those of other appropriate governing bodies. It is the responsibility of the faculty member to provide documentation of appropriate professional preparation. Such documentation will be maintained in the employee’s personnel file.

To ensure that faculty meet employment criteria, both through criteria established by the North Carolina Community College System and the Commission on Colleges of the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools, this faculty credential policy will be followed.

The following minimum credentials must be present to teach at R-CCC:

New Employee Orientation (New Employee Orientation Checklist)

Effectively orienting new employees to the campus and to their positions is critical to establishing successful, productive working relationships. Roanoke-Chowan Community College provides an orientation session for new employees and conducts or supports training programs that it determines to be appropriate.

The Human Resources Department is responsible for the overall development and coordination of the orientation program and for implementing the portions that cover the College history, mission, policies and operating procedures, benefits, and new employee files and documentation.

Each supervisor is responsible for orientation as it applies to introducing the new employee to his/her specific job duties and responsibilities, and the department. The supervisor is also responsible for recommending employees for special training programs and professional development activities.

Probationary Period
The probationary period is an extension of the employment selection process. It should be used to ensure that the applicant selected is qualified to perform the job and achieve regular status.

Newly hired staff employees serve a three-month introductory period unless otherwise stated in an employment contract. During this period, supervisors review the employee’s progress and performance to determine suitability for college employment. To make this decision, the supervisor will develop performance expectations and objectives, observe the employee, provide feedback, and set aside ample time to evaluate the employee’s performance. If satisfactory performance is not attained, the College may extend the probationary period or not renew the contract after the probationary period. The probationary employee has no right to file a grievance if their employment is not continued or extended beyond the 90 day probationary status.

The probationary period can:

•Help the employee achieve training goals and performance objectives
•Ensure that the employee has all the tools to perform the job successfully
•Help the employee develop the skills needed to perform the job
•Confirm that the best qualified person was chosen for the position
•Foster a mutual understanding of expectations, performance objectives, and the evaluation process
