Save Tenure and Continuing Status at KCTCS

179 Signatures Goal: 250

The KCTCS Board of Regents is considering a proposal to eliminate tenure and continuing status. The faculty senate at Jefferson Community and Technical College passed the following resolution opposing the elimination of tenure and continuing status. Be it resolved that the Faculty of JCTC strongly supports the KY Postsecondary Educational Improvement Act of 1997 (HB 1) with its provisions for the maintenance of tenure and current retirement benefits. We oppose any attempt by KCTCS President McCall or the Board of Regents to strip away these essential provisions that the KY General Assembly wisely included in HB 1 when the community colleges were removed from UK to form the KCTCS. The abolition of tenure, the bulwark of accountability and quality, and the emasculation of retirement benefits would have deleterious effects upon attracting the best teachers, and focusing on our mission to provide the higher educational excellence Kentucky students deserve. We encourage anyone who supports basic due process rights for employees and academic freedom to sign our petition in support of this resolution opposing the elimination of tenure and continuing status.
