RE P L A C EM EN T R AD I O S TA F F P OS IT IO N The KCRH 89.9 FM radio station has been licensed by the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) since April 10, 1981. There was a full-time Classified Radio Technician working for the MCOM department until March 29, 2002. The position became vacant when the Radio Technician left to work in commercial radio. This governmental regulatory agency mandates that licensed stations operate safely. As a college, safety is a priority along with providing students access to vocational programs like the radio studios. Without a full-time staff member it would be almost negligent for this to continue and has almost debilitated the program. It has taken an enormous amount of volunteer time from the full-time and part-time faculty teaching the MCOM 9, 40, 44, 50, 58 and 59 classes. This takes time away from other important duties these faculty need to perform. We have periodically been able to have a part-time Instructional Assistant work at the radio station. This has been funded by VTEA and other one-time monies that will run out this semester. We have been generating revenue by selling underwriting spots and participating in a non-profit car donation program. The funds generated are being used to pay for supplies, equipment maintenance, repairs and replacement needs. As the revenue stream increases, the income could be used to help offset the cost of hiring an Instructional Assistant. Chabot College Unit Plan, Part III(b) It is imperative to have a reliably funded Instructional Assistant for the radio program. The work load for this job is at the level of a full-time position. In light of the present budget crisis, we are hoping that this position will be funded at least as a part-time regular (permanent) classified position at 28 hours per week.

We had a temporary part-time Instructional Assistant at the television station. We have had to pursue and fight for the unreliable funding to pay for this “position.” We have been generating income by renting the television studios for productions. The funds generated from rentals are being used to pay for supplies and equipment maintenance and repairs. As the revenue stream increases, the income can be used to help offset the cost of the Television Instructional Assistant position. The city of Hayward, through the Comcast franchise fees, has commit funds for utilization of the TV studio by the community. Without a full-time Television Technician/Instructional Assistant it will be difficult to generate revenue and fulfill the Public Access portions of our agreement which the city of Hayward stimulates. It is crucial to instruction and to generating operating funds that we hire a Television Technician/Instructional Assistant, as a consistently funded full-time regular (permanent) classified position. The work load for this job is at the level of 1.5 full-time positions. Safely operating the station and providing students with access to the TV studios and tutoring without a fulltime staff member has hurt enrollments and the MCOM program. It has taken an enormous amount of volunteer time from the full- time and part-time faculty teaching the MCOM 9, 44, 60, 61, 69 TV classes. This impacts their work, taking time away from other important duties these faculty need to perform. The workload distribution unfairly causes faculty to perform Classified support staff duties in addition to their teaching and professional responsibilities.

Indicate here any information from advisory committees or outside accreditation reviews that is pertinent to the proposal.
