SCCC/ATS Board Of Trustees Meet
08/04/2010

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

met Monday. Aug. 2

The budget hearing for the 2010-11 school year was changed to 12:15 p.m.,

Monday, Aug. 13. Due to an error in the publication of the FY2011 budget in

the July 21 High Plains Daily Leader, the college¹s designated legal

publication, it was necessary to republish the budget and hold the budget

hearing on Aug. 13. There is no change to the recommended budget as

authorized at the July 19 board meeting so the budget will be republished at

no charge.

One hundred twelve children attended Kids College this year, said Dale Reed,

associate dean of educational services. The college has kept its price per

class at $25 to allow more children to attend. Reed said prices for classes

in area communities are considerably higher.

The Automotive Technology is the latest program to receive certification

from the National Automotive Technicians Education Foundation (NATEF) and

the National Institute for Automotive Service Excellence (ASE).

The American Volleyball Coaches Association recognized the Lady Saints

Volleyball Team as the recipient of the 2009-10 Academic Award for

excellence both on and off the court. The Saints Tennis Team was first in

the nation for overall grade point average and the Women¹s Tennis Team was

third.

Dr. Duane Dunn, SCCC/ATS president, provided the Board with an update on the

development of a revised distribution formula for state funding of technical

education courses. Dunn explained the concept, which has been presented to

the Technical Education Authority and will be presented to the Board of

Regents and then further refined for the 2011 Kansas legislative session.

The formula is designed to reimburse all colleges on a consistent amount

based on credit hours generated. The amount of reimbursement is determined

using national and state data on the actual cost of instruction.

The EduKan consortium of the six western Kansas community colleges, which

provides online courses, is continuing to show growth, according to Dunn.

He explained to the Board that modifications are being developed to the

inter-local agreement among the six founding colleges, of which SCCC/ATS is

among those founding colleges. The modifications will allow for expansion

of the consortium.

In other action, the board

1. Adopted the Administrative Succession Plan;

2. Approved the employment of David Ingle as Diesel Technology

Instructor and Laurel Lahita, nursing instructor;

3. Accepted the registration of Cammy Harrold, Applied

Communications Instructor;

4. Adopted a temporary Tuberculosis Prevention Plan for all

international and housing students, while the college waits for the

regulations from the Kansas Department of Health and Environment;

5. Adopted the FEMA-approved Multi-Jurisdictional Mitigation

Plan;

6. Adopted a Public Entity Authorization Resolution with Dr.

Steve Cauble as the new chairperson of the board of trustees; and

7. Approved the capital equipment list as presented.
