SCCC/ATS Board Of Trustees Meet
09/09/2009

The Seward County Community College/Area Technical School Board of Trustees met Tuesday, September 8, to discuss enrollment, the foundation auction and online learning.

The college is up 35 percent in the number of students who are attending SCCC/ATS this fall, said Celeste Donovan, dean of student services. She also indicated that credit hours are up 30 percent and there are outreach and late start classes yet to be recorded. Friday was the last day to drop without penalty. Forty-two percent of the growth is in technical school enrollment with approximately 60 more adult students in the area technical school than last year and nearly 40 more high school students enrolled in the technical school.

Tammy Doll, director of development, told the board about the upcoming SCCC Development Foundation Auction, at 6 p.m., Saturday, Sept. 19. The cost to attend the auction is $20 per ticket, and includes food, drink, silent and live auction and entertainment. Participants must have a ticket to get in the door.

Proceeds from the auction fund student scholarships, which cannot be funded through the college’s operational budget..

The number of students taking online classes through EduKan has also doubled.

One of the largest increases on campus this fall is through EduKan classes, said Cynthia Rapp, dean of instruction. “That’s a sign of the times and it’s important that we continue to be strong in those areas.”

The college continues to use the State Post-secondary education improvement bond fund (PEI) for deferred maintenance projects on campus. The board directed the administration to solicit bids to make improvements to the parking lots at the area technical school. The concrete parking lots will include drainage and fire lanes.

In other action, the board accepted the resignation of Mike Paden, natural gas technology instructor, effective Sept. 16.

The college will hold a come and go brunch on Sunday, September 13 in the student union/cafeteria with student performances and a buffet menu. The next board meeting is Monday, Oct. 5 in the board room.
