The Institute for Professional Development (IPD) is initiating the Sabbatical Leave application process intended for 2020-2021 consistent with Article 21.3d of the CFE/AFT-CCCD contract. Applications are accepted during the Fall 2020 semester, and sabbatical leave awards are announced in February 2020 for the following academic year, subject to budget availability.


Although the deadline to submit the Intent to File is September 6, 2019, we send this announcement out early so that those intending to apply have the opportunity to work on their proposals during the summer break.


If you are interested in applying and would like to meet with the IPD Chair to receive additional information on completing the Sabbatical application process, please contact Patty Fonseca in the IPD Office at 714/895-8175 or email to schedule an appointment.


Common questions:

  • What do I need to think of ahead of time?
  • How do I write a proposal?
  • How are the proposals ranked?
  • How are the funds allocated?

IPD wants to ensure that all Sabbatical Leave applicants are well informed on the process of completing a sabbatical leave packet.
