Sabbatical leave is a privilege, not an earned right, accorded to qualified members of the faculty by the Board of Trustees for the purpose of professional improvement.
The ultimate objective of the sabbatical leave is a contribution to the students, to the college, to the district, and to the faculty member's professional qualifications.
