No one was present for public comment.
Katie Underwood was available for questions and concerns about the Day Care Committee. In the discussion, the S&A Committee would like to see an on-going day care committee including a member of the S&A. Wendy Williams was interested in participating on this committee. The S&A Committee would like their concerns regarding day care funding resolved before the next funding cycle. Katie will work with Katrina Whitney on the day care committee structure and will provide information on the new structure. There were several questions asked and Katie will bring the answers back to the committee.
The discussion continues on base budget funding and looking at the different scenarios. When the committee decides on their preferred scenario, implementation will be staggered, and would not start until the next biennium after a focus group has looked at the process. Base budget funding will give the S&A Committee an opportunity to review each annual report in-depth.
The committee reviewed the revisions to Section I Committee Structure and suggested changes to Item C., which addresses student members being appointed no later than the third week of classes of Fall Quarter.
The S&A Committee reviewed Section II Committee Procedures. During the discussion, changes were made to the document; including making it clear on establishing meeting times, clarifying excused and unexcused absences, and changing the paragraph on reporting of student-centered programs. These changes will be incorporated into the draft for review at the next meeting.
The next meeting will be held on November 14 at 5:10 p.m. It was agreed that there will be no meeting held on November 21 because of the Thanksgiving Holiday.
Kevin Kimball wanted the committee to be aware of the possibility of a championship football game. A championship game would be governed by the League, and there would be no free tickets. He thought the S&A Committee may be approached to fund a number of free tickets for the students. A problem could be that all S&A funds need to be approved by the Board of Trustees and December is their next meeting. The committee didn’t feel the students would have trouble paying for a $5 ticket. The S&A Committee would consider a request if brought before them.
The meeting adjourned at 7:20.
