Every district must have an equivalency process. Education code §87359 (b) requires that “[t]he process, as well as criteria, and standards by which the governing board reaches its determination regarding faculty members shall be developed and agreed upon jointly by representatives of the governing board and the academic senate, and approved by the governing board.” While neither the Education code nor title 5 Regulations provide additional guidelines for what constitutes at least equivalent, each district’s governing board, acting on the advice of its academic senate, must establish its standard for equivalency, permitted the standard is not less than qualifications specified on the Disciplines list. Once the local equivalency process has reached a recommendation regarding an individual applicant, Education code §87359(a) requires that the governing board include action on the equivalency as part of its subsequent hiring action.
