Item 6

Policy Updates

Chad Campbell, President

NEW – Policy 820 – Acquisition of Capital Assets

Provided as a link is the proposed new Policy 820 – Acquisition of Capital Assets for your review. Bridgerland Technical College has published its Capitalization practices in the Audited Annual Financial Report for many years. Based on a finding and recommendation by the Office of the Utah State Auditor at one of the other Technical Colleges this year, formalizing this long-standing practice into an official policy is recommended.


Policy 630 – Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA)

Provided as a link are proposed changes to Policy 630 – Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA). An update to Bridgerland’s current ADA policy, as it relates to students, is needed to provide additional clarifying language. Key words in this additional clarifying language include… “equal access to participants in all programs, services, and activities sponsored by the College.” In addition, definitions for “a person with a disability” and “otherwise qualified” are added to the policy. The final change to the policy is in the procedure section because State Risk Management rules require the College to consult with them before ever denying an accommodation request. These policy changes have been reviewed by State Risk Management.

Administration will be present at the meeting to discuss this new policy and address any questions or comments from the Board.

ACTION:  Recommend approval of Policy 820 – Acquisition of Capital Assets and Policy 630 – Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA).
