Committee Reports:

RPIPC discussed the smoking policy and the issue is not with the policy, it is with enforcement. The crosswalks were mentioned and will be discussed with Justin Gaines. The shared leave policy is being looked at for new language when it comes to adding Immediate Family members to the policy.


SAPC discussed 2nd year student retention and the possibility of small short term loans for students.

Staff Development - nothing to report.

Communications - nothing to report

The bylaws committee has gathered all the delegate nominations and need to contact the nominees. They will proceed with elections and have results for the next staff council meeting.

The Staff Appreciation committee has planned Staff Appreciation Night for a home basketball game.

Staff Council voted a yes  to purchase a paw for “Paws For A Cause”. There was one vote not to purchase. Paw painting will be Feb. 6, time to be determined.

Thank you notes to staff are still available from Reese.

Executive Committee: Shared leave was discussed at RPIPC and the definition of “immediate family” is a concern.


Staff Council will receive an extra $20K in staff development funds. Volunteers to serve on the planning committee are Bevan Burgamy, Tracy Norris, Greg Mahan, and Toi Franks.
