What's new?

    At the September meeting, discussion was held regarding the Employee of the Month award and the exclusion of the Executive Committee in being able to be nominated. A motion was made to remove that exclusion and all in attendance approved. Therefore, beginning September 13, 2017, all Executive Committee members are eligible to be nominated for Employee of the Month.

    Per our bylaws amended on 4/19/17, there will no longer be separate Executive Committee meetings; instead all monthly meetings are open to all staff and all are encouraged to attend.  Next Staff Alliance Meeting - Tuesday, September 12, 2017, 2-3 p.m., PS 109.
    Policy Approval:
    Policies are continually being updated and reviewed by the Policy Committee and College Council.
