What is FLEX?
The faculty obligation to engage in professional development each semester. Title V allows community colleges “flexibility” with the 175-day instructional calendar to enable participation in activities related to staff, student and instructional improvement. Rio Hondo has negotiated a 168-day calendar, with an additional 7 days required for FLEX activities. The exact number of hours required each semester is based on a faculty member’s instructional load.
