SCCC/ATS Board Meets
05/05/2010

The Seward County Community College/Area Technical School Board of Trustees

met Monday, May 3, for its regular board meeting. Prior to the board meeting

the board met with a cross-section of students to discuss their experiences

at the college. The board said that overall the students were pleased with

their education at the college.

Suggestions for improvement included the feasibility

of providing child care and continuing to insure awareness of student

activities to all students enrolled.

Donetta Dreitz, registrar, gave a review over the 2010 graduation ceremony

scheduled for 10 a.m., Saturday, May 8 in the gym. Members of the board of

trustees will hand out diplomas to more than 300 graduates, which is an

increase above the number of students receiving diplomas in 2009.

Dr. Duane Dunn presented several scenarios from the Kansas legislature for

raising additional revenue in the state, including changes in the state

income tax and possible cigarette and liquor tax increases.

Further reductions from the state are possible, Dunn said, and reductions in

the departmental budget requests will continue to be developed.

Doug Browne, multimedia technology director, presented an overview of a

campus-wide security camera system that would include all off-campus

facilities. The security camera system will enable the college to provide

improved security and record of any accidents or damages that occur on the

college property.

The board approved the purchase of the necessary equipment from Alexander

Open Systems of Garden City in the amount of $111,906.11.

Although the Gas Compressor Institute was very good this year, attendance

was down, said Dale Reed, associate dean of educational services. The board

will re-evaluate the materials as well as the overall institute to see what

can be done to boost enrollment. One aspect was a change in

pre-registration procedures which may have had an impact on the number of

people who attended.

The college signed an articulation agreement with National American

University to provide and online bachelor¹s degrees as well as graduate

degrees, said Cynthia Rapp, dean of instruction. The new agreement provides

another avenue for on-line students who have completed an associate degree

through SCCC/ATS to complete a bachelor¹s degree without having to relocate.

Celeste Donavon, dean of student services, told the board that the phonathan

to raise money for scholarships brought in $33,776. The Baseball Team raised

the most money as an organization and Galen McSpadden, head men¹s baseball

coach, raised the most money as a staff member.

In other action, the board

Accepted the resignation of Ryan Stock, assistant men¹s

basketball coach;

Approved the quote from Luminous Neon of Dodge City in the

amount of $39,527 to update the electronic sign at the west entrance of

campus, including an RGB color electronic message center.

caster chairs for carpeted surfaces from Kansas Contract Design of Wichita

in the amount of $43,420.55 that will be used at the area technical school;

Approved the purchase of carpet for the Humanities Building

from Flooring American and Furniture of Liberal in the amount of $47,608;

Kansas-Oklahoma Machine of Wichita in the amount of $113,275 for the

Machine Tool technology programs. Funds for the purchase of the cutting

tool are provided through a grant from the Kansas Department of Commerce.

The next board meeting is Monday, June 7 in the board room
