The Governing Board of the Maricopa Community College District recognizes the responsibility to demonstrate ethical and professional conduct. In order to demonstrate this commitment to public trust and accountability to the communities that we serve, all Governing Board Members and all employees shall be required to participate in training that focuses on public stewardship and institutional ethics. Such training shall be rigorous, practical and application based. Newly hired Board-Approved employees shall be required to participate in training during their probationary period or within one year of their hire and every three years thereafter, with subsequent training to focus on updates or changes in course content. Existing Board-Approved employees shall be required to participate in training within two years of the adoption of this policy and every three years thereafter. Board-Approved employees includes those who have or could attain permanent status, one year onlys, one semester onlys, skill center and specially funded employees. The District also shall consider ways of training temporary employees once initial training of Governing Board Members and Governing Board-Approved employees is complete. Temporary employees shall be required to participate in training every three years after initial training. The delivery of training to temporaries may differ from that of regular employees, in recognition of the fact that they may work on a part-time or seasonal basis.
