It’s already Feb. 2, do you know where your PDQ is? I told you I can be a procrastinator, but I am happy to report that I have started mine and have been filling it out in small sections. For me, it makes the process more manageable. Do what works for you, but please fill it out. Many thanks to those who have already completed and turned theirs in.

A few reminders:

  • PDQ’s DUE no later than 5 p.m. on Friday, Feb. 24, 2017. To ensure your comments remain unchanged, email your completed PDQ to:
    1. The supervisor and/or administrator who signs your time sheet; AND
    2. Myisha Washington, Manager, Compensation, Classification and Employment,
    3. Keep a copy for your records.
  • Misplaced your PDQ? Here is the form. It is a word document which you can save to your computer.
  • Need help? Please contact me or Myisha Washington. In addition, Marykay Englen will host a couple of drop-in sessions, Feb. 3 from 11 a.m. – 2 p..m. and Feb. 15 from noon – 3 p.m., in the staff development office at De Anza (MLC 246). These sessions are open to all ACE district employees. I am working on offering a couple sessions for the Foothill campus.
  • Remember, the position, not the incumbent is being reviewed.
    • Factors that are included:
      1. Nature of duties and responsibilities;
      2. Scope, level, and complexity of duties and responsibilities;
      3. Relationship of the position to other positions in the department and with the college/district;
      4. Supervision, both given and received;
      5. Exercise of independent judgment; and
      6. Autonomy and authority related to decision-making and accountability.
    • Factors that are not included:
      1. Quality of performance (performance evaluation rating);
      2. Quantity of work (volume);
      3. Status of the incumbent;
      4. Information relative to the employee’s length of service;
      5. Time spent at the maximum of the position’s salary range;
      6. Skills/education not related to the job or minimum qualifications; and
      7. Employee’s salary placement within the salary range.

Thank you for your time and attention to this study.
