This webpage includes all major documents that you will need to complete classroom and student evaluations of probationary faculty, including links to online forms. These documents can be downloaded for your convenience.
Using the Tenure Shells on Canvas
Completed evaluations for probationary faculty and other important documents are now collected in Canvas. Each committee has its own shell. Committee members should upload documents directly to the Canvas shell. Nicole Gray from FA made a video on how to upload files to a tenure shell on Canvas. When you watch the video below, substitute "De Anza" instead of "Foothill" and my name instead of "Patricia Gibbs."
Watch the Canvas Tenure Shell instructional video.
Documents and Procedures
Please see the most recent documents and procedures for the J1s and J2s below.
Probationary Evaluations (J1s)
- There is a new AdobeSign version of the J1 for use in Tenure Review. You can find the AdobeSign J1 in your Faculty or Employee workflow list. It is named:
"De Anza J1 Evaluation Form for Tenure Committees (Faculty, Employee)"
- The form itself contains detailed instructions for initiators and for subsequent signers. Please do read these.
- Be prepared: You will need to upload/attach files with the three written narratives (rather than typing these into a text box). If you write all three narratives in the same file (make sure each one is labeled separately!), you will need to upload it three separate times.
- If you have any questions about using this form, please contact me! I am happy to help!
