Equivalency Forms

Equivalency Forms for Faculty (Part-Time and Full-Time) 

As a condition of employment with the Mendocino-Lake Community College District, faculty are required to meet State mandated minimum qualifications or the equivalent as defined by the Minimum Qualifications for Faculty and Administrators in California Community College Handbook. A person holding a credential authorizing service in a California Community College meets minimum qualifications in the discipline authorized by that credential and the person will retain the right to serve under that credential as provided by state law until it expires. Any person granted or previously granted equivalency for teaching in a given discipline by Mendocino-Lake Community College District Board of Trustees pursuant to state laws and regulations will be deemed to have met the minimum requirements in that discipline and will retain the right to teach in that discipline pursuant to state laws and regulations.
