HPTC board faces a varied agenda

Woodward, Okla. — High Plains Technology Center board members have several items on the agenda for their regularly scheduled board meeting.

The meeting will be held July 9 at 5:30 p.m. at HPTC.

The board will discuss, review and vote on the Activity Fund Management Plan for Fiscal Year 2013.

Rachelle Rogers, board minutes clerk, said it is a management plan that outlines how the school can take money into its various accounts and how it can then spend those funds. For example, with the benevolence fund, the only money they can receive is staff dues and the only thing they can spend it on is things for the staff such as food, cards and flowers, she said.

The Activity Fund Report for June 2012 will be discussed, reviewed and voted on as well.

The board will also discuss the hiring of a Marketing and Comm-unications Director for Fiscal Year 2013.  Rogers said the position is new and was created to fulfill requirements by their state accreditation.

The hiring of part-time employees to be added to the Fiscal Year 2013 roster will also be discussed.

The Fiscal Year 2013 Organizational Chart will be also be voted on. The chart is a hierarchy of High Plains employees which includes a person's name and title, Rogers said.

The Fiscal Year 2013 Practical Nursing Student Handbook will be discussed, reviewed and voted on as well.

Board members will also vote on General Fund Encumbrances in the amount of $941,649.79 and Payroll Encumbrances in the amount of $3,613,861.11.

Other agenda items include the superintendent's report and the June 2012 treasurer's report.

Various equipment such as chairs, tables, printers or computers, are up for consideration as surplus.  If the items are approved as surplus, they can then be sold at an auction, Rogers said.
