Got Work Study?
Do you have a student who wants to work in your area? Because Federal Work Study funds are limited and are first-come, first-served, this might be a good time to encourage any students you'd like to have work for you as a Federal Work Study employee in 2013-14 to complete their 2013-14 FAFSA and all Foothill-required paperwork for 2013-14 Financial Aid ASAP. Students should contact Christine Johnson, who handles student employment in our Financial Aid Office. She can be reached at firstname.lastname@example.org, and/or 650-949-7470. Remind students they need to include their student ID!
Last Call For Fall Schedule Requests
The deadline for Fall Schedule Requests is Wednesday, May 22nd at 5PM.
If you are a Part Time Faculty requesting an assignment for Fall, or a Full Time Faculty requesting an overload, the request can be found here: http://www.foothill.edu/fa/information.php
A few faculty have contacted me regarding their Summer assignments - if you did not request a Summer assignment, and it did not "roll" from last year, I assume you are not interested in teaching during Summer. We still have a few classes to add as we are waiting for State approval/control numbers, and we can certainly add more sections for Late (regular) Summer if you overlooked the request process!
Got An Item?Are you performing or exhibiting somewhere? Giving a presentation? I'll be happy to put it in the TT! Items run once, so try to send it to me the week before your event.
