SSC Board of Regents Convene for May Meeting

The Seminole State College Board of Regents convened Thursday for their monthly meeting. At their May meeting, they approved a revision regarding standard working hours for employees during the summer months as well as revisions to the campus tobacco use policy.

During the President’s report, President Lana Reynolds updated the Board about recent campus events and activities, including the Spring Recognition Banquet and Commencement. She also discussed the progress of several SSC athletic teams, with updates on the softball team who will be heading to nationals next week, and the Trojan baseball team who began play in the NJCAA regional tournament on Thursday. 

Under the first item of business, the Board approved the revision of Policy II-5-3 regarding standard working hours for 12 month employees. For many years, the campus has closed on Fridays during the summer months. Employees were required to take annual leave or work extended hours Monday through Thursday to make-up those Friday hours. Under the approved policy revisions, employees will not be required to make up those missed hours with annual leave or compensatory time.  In short, employees will be awarded five hours of paid annual leave each week in June and July.

Except for special requirements in certain areas of campus, general office hours will be set 8 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Mondays through Thursdays, with a one-hour lunch break.  This leave program will be conducted on a trial basis this summer. The adjusted schedule will begin on Tuesday, May 28, 2018, following the Memorial Day holiday weekend.  Additionally, due to the 4th of July falling on a Wednesday this year, the campus will be closed for three days that week – July 4, 5 and 6. 

President Reynolds said she hopes the adjusted summer hours will be a morale booster to SSC employees. “We are appreciative of the hard work, perseverance and dedication our employees have given this institution during our recent years of budget challenges.  This reduction of the summer work load is a small ‘thank you’ from the administration and our Board of Regents.”

Board members also approved the second agenda item regarding revisions to the use of tobacco on campus – Policy II-7-9. The changes to the policy strengthen restrictions on smoking at off-site campus-sponsored events, prohibits tobacco sponsorships, and advertising and requires the promotion of tobacco cessation benefits. These changes were made at the recommendation of Gateway to Prevention and Recovery of Shawnee.  

Under the consent agenda, the 2018-2019 Events and Employee Holiday schedule was also approved.

Board members present at the May meeting were: Chair Bryan Cain, Marci Donaho, Curtis Morgan, Paige Sheffield and Kim Hyden. The next SSC Board of Regents meeting is scheduled for Thursday, June 21, 2018.
