SCCC/ATS Board Of Trustees Meet

The Seward County Community College/Area Technical School Board of Trustees met Monday, November 2, for its regular board meeting to discuss the college’s 2010-2017 strategic plan as well as other plans for the college.

Board members were presented with a draft of the 2010-17 strategic plan for their review.

The different aspects of the Strategic Plan include Creating Awareness, Workforce Development, Student Learning, Employee Development, Diversity and Technology.

Dale Reed, associate dean of educational services, told the board that the Respiratory Therapy and Nursing programs are the recipients of state reserve grant fund money through federal Carl Perkins legislation in the amount of $50,400. Those funds will be used to enhance the cooperative distance delivered courses with Dodge City and Garden City community colleges as well as to expand health career awareness with local high school students.

The college is also the recipient of additional state funds for adult basic education for English Literacy and Civics classes, said Cynthia Rapp, dean of instruction.

In other action, the board

1. Accepted the bid from JAG Construction of Dodge City in the amount of $353,282.35 to resurface the technical school parking lot with six-inch concrete; and

2. Accepted the bid from Oklahoma City Freightliner of Oklahoma City in the amount of $33,440 for a used “on the road” truck tractor for the truck driving program.

The college will hold a flag ceremony at 12:30 p.m., Nov. 17 to recognize the college’s 34 international students who represent 18 countries.

The board will host Garden City and Dodge City community college trustees at 6 p.m., Wednesday, Nov. 4. This is an annual joint meeting of the three colleges. The December meeting will be Tuesday, Dec. 8, at 7:30 p.m.
