Policy Review Committee
-Lilias- passed out dorm admission and occupancy handbook and polices – has combined nursing dorm policy with original dorm policy (85-050). Received feedback from Joan Nelson and editing from Rainey Benson. Deb Tobacco said, rules regarding dorm(s) should apply to all occupants– Lilias notes that if something applies specifically to a student it mentions “student”, but otherwise it is noted as “tenant” or “resident”. Deb and Leslie would like to see “Non-student” also included next to where “student” is mentioned.
-Sylvia notes that she would like to see a policy and then a procedure (separated).
-Deb notes there is a difference on page 12 – difference in Dorm Committees make up and the
meeting frequency. Feels that it should be consistent across the board. Suggests Nursing Dorm Falls under a local board as all other dorms, for consistency across the board. Chair says will revisit next month.
-Milton – regarding policy 85-300 – states again that this is not a policy, it is a program description. Milton recommends that we strike policy 85-300. Kiri notes that there is no other Student Support Service policy in handbook if deleted. Question posed if a policy is needed. Motion made by Milton to delete policy 85-300 2nd by Diana. Votes in favor of: 7, opposed: 5 –motion passes.
Motion made by Shawn to adjourn, 2nd by Kiri. Meeting adjourned at 11:57 p.m.
