A Note Regarding Furloughs & Their Impact on the Course
Due to the California budget crisis, the CSU faculty and many staff members have been furloughed.
Implementation of a furlough for faculty is complicated.
In theory, the current furlough calls for a
10% reduction in work time, which translates, generally, to 2 days per month of non-work.
The implications of the furlough for the course are unclear.
Students might expect changes to the
course schedule, or delays in assignment feedback and grades, among other consequences.
Nevertheless, instructors will work to find reasonable accommodations with student needs, faculty
obligations, and furlough requirements.
