Item 7

UCAT Policy Development – ATC President Search Committee and ATC President Evaluation and Compensation Committee 
Dr. Scott Theurer, BATC Trustee Representative/Board Member
Senate Bill (SB) 131, passed in the 2016 General Session of the Utah State Legislature, modified provisions for the selection, compensation, and evaluation of applied technology college presidents. Under previous statute, president appointments and compensation were by the UCAT President (Commissioner) with approval of the Board of Trustees. Evaluations were also by the UCAT President (Commissioner) in accordance with UCAT Policy 104. The new SB131 provisions require the Board of Trustees to directly select, evaluate, and set compensation for college presidents.

The Board of Trustees, in its September 14, 2016, meeting approved a recommendation from the Executive Committee to appoint the following two committees to develop and/or change the policies required by SB131:

  1. Applied Technology College President Evaluation and Compensation (link coming soon)
  2. Applied Technology College President Selection (link coming soon)

The committees are each comprised of three trustees, a college president, and a member of the commissioner’s staff. Both committees requested input from all of the college presidents and have developed draft policies and procedures with the input received so far. As part of the process, the committees also want to receive input from the Board of Directors at each ATC. Accordingly, Scott Theurer, representing BATC as the Trustee on the College President Selection Committee will be present at the meeting to provide a report on the progress of these two policies and request input from the members of the Board.

ACTION: It is recommended the Board review the policies and provide input and ideas at their collective discretion.

Item 8

Policy 604 and Policy 609 Updates
Chad Campbell, President
BATC Administration has identified two existing policies that need to be updated. A brief summary of each policy and the proposed changes are listed below:

Policy 604 – Admissions, Enrollment, and Registration
In response to a student request, BATC administrative staff reviewed the current policy along with authoritative guidance from the U.S. Department of Education regarding BATC’s admissions policy and process. Following the review, BATC Administration would like to propose a minor change and clarification of the terminology. The current policy uses the term “high school diploma or GED” and this proposal would change that language to “high school diploma or its recognized equivalent.”The other minor change to this policy would change the terminology used to describe assessment testing from “diagnostic admission exams” to “academic assessments.”

Policy 609 – Student Rights and Responsibilities
In the procedures section of the policy, BATC Administration would like to propose adding a bullet point of “falsification of the time clock” to the list of student behaviors that would be considered inappropriate and subject to potential disciplinary action.Note: Since this change is in the procedural section, approval of this proposed policy change wouldn’t technically require Board approval. Accordingly, this change is being provided as an information item to keep the Board informed.

ACTION: Recommend approval of Policy 604 and Policy 609 changes.

Item 9

Audit Committee Selection
Ann Geary, Board Chair
The BATC Board of Directors developed, approved, and implemented substantial revisions to Policy 103 – BATC Governing Authority during the June 20, 2016, and the August 29, 2016, Board meetings. As a result of those policy changes and the restructuring of BATC’s Board officers, new appointments to the Audit Committee become imperative. Policy reads, “The Audit Committee shall be comprised of a chair, three board members, and one member from a local CPA firm who is chosen and appointed by the other four members of the Audit Committee.” The Audit Committee chair and the other Board members on the Audit Committee will be chosen by the BATC Board chair, vice chair, and past chair as required by BATC policy; however, discussion and input on who would be interested and willing to serve in this capacity will occur during the meeting so the Board officers can arrive at an informed decision.

ACTION: Recommend BATC Board officers appoint an Audit Committee in accordance with BATC Policy 103.
