Call your Human Resources Specialist to set up an Orientation appointment. Please do not drop-in. New Hire orientations are conducted at the District Office Human Resources Office, located at 1919 Spanos Court, Sacramento, CA 95825, which is off of Howe Avenue between Northrop Ave. and Fair Oaks Blvd. Your specialist is determined by the first letter of your last name:
When you call to schedule your appointment, you will be asked for some personal information (date of birth, name, address, social security number, etc.) In addition to your personal information you will also need to know the discipline that you are teaching and your date of hire. You will need to bring the following items with you to your appointment:
You will also need to:
You can request that your transcripts be sent to your home, and you can walk them in to HR; or, you can have them sent directly to your HR Specialist. If you choose to have your transcripts sent to your home, make sure that the envelope does not get opened! We cannot accept the transcripts if the envelope has been opened.
Because salary placement is based on degrees and units earned, you will want to order ALL of your transcripts (bachelors, masters, etc.). If you have a doctorate degree AND if the discipline that you are teaching is the same discipline as your doctorate degree, you will only need to order the doctorate. If the disciplines are different, then you will need to order all of your transcripts because according to the LRCFT contract, section 184.108.40.206.1, "Doctoral Degrees must be earned in a field directly related to the initial assignment."
Degrees earned outside of the United States must be evaluated in the United States in order to be used.
You are also required to meet the tuberculosis clearance requirement within 15 days of your date of hire. We offer TB risk assessment and TB skin testing, if needed, and Certificates of Completion for employees, free of charge, at our campus health centers. Please contact the campus health center for testing hours. You also have the option of seeing your own personal physician. Or, if you already have a recent (less than four years old) TB skin test result, Interferon Gamma Release Assay (IGRA)* result, or TB risk assessment along with a Certificate of Completion from another community college district, private or parochial elementary school, secondary school or nursery school, you may send us a copy.
If you have retired from the State Teachers' Retirement System (STRS) you will be required to submit a Freedom from Disabling Disease form. The form must be mailed directly from your physician to your specialist before you start working. A physical is required for your physician to complete the form unless you have already had a physical no more than six months prior.
Step 3 - The day of your orientation/employment processing:
Orientation/employment processing, takes approximately one hour and is usually done as a group. Please let your specialist know, in advance, if you need special accommodations.
Please arrive on time! We schedule group appointments and cannot hold up an entire group or start over after we have already started the orientation. Therefore, if you are late, you will be rescheduled.
Bring your paperwork! The fingerprint paperwork and your documents that indicate that you have the right to work in the United States are crucial. Please do not forget them because we might have to reschedule your appointment if you don't have the requested paperwork.
You will receive a lot of information during orientation , including:
