Frequently Asked Questions

JCCC's Board of Trustees abides by the Kansas Open Meeting Acts (KOMA), KSA 75-4317 et seq. Therefore, Board of Trustees meetings are open to the public. Only executive sessions are closed.

The Board may call an executive session, which is open only to the elected members of the Board of Trustees. Others, such as college counsel, may attend an executive session by invitation. The Trustees may go into executive session for these reasons:

  • To discuss personnel matters concerning non-elected personnel
  • To consult with the College's attorney
  • To confer on employer-employee negotiation
  • To discuss matters affecting a student
  • For preliminary discussions relating to the acquisition of real property
  • For reasons of security, if open discussion would jeopardize security

No. After you've signed in, you may simply take a seat in the meeting room (usually the Hugh W. Speer Board Room, GEB 137). Board packets, which tell you what will be discussed at the regular monthly meeting, are available online.

The meeting dates are posted online. Meetings usually begin at 5 p.m. (those that start at a different time are noted by an asterisk) and take place in the Hugh W. Speer Board Room, GEB 137, on the JCCC campus. The dates and times of regular meetings may be changed by the majority consent of the Board of Trustees.

The Board may also call special meetings in between the regular monthly meetings and set times for workshops and retreats. Special meeting dates and times are posted on the online event calendar. Changes to meeting times and the dates and times of special meetings, workshops and retreats will be posted. The media is also notified of meeting times and dates.

Standing Committees - Roles and Responsibilities

(internal and external audit functions of the college)

The committee will have oversight of and receive reports from JCCC’s Internal Auditing functions. The committee will review reports and other information arising from the college’s confidential reporting line. The committee will have ownership and oversight of the relationship with the external, independent auditors and will receive the annual audited financial statements of the independent auditor and recommend acceptance of the audited financial statements to the Board of Trustees. The Board Chair and Vice Chair will serve on this committee.

The committee will review Board policies (100 series) and the performance review process for the President. Additionally, the committee will oversee a Board development, new Trustee onboarding, and the Board self-evaluation processes on an annual basis to ensure a high-performing Board. 
The committee will review general personnel matters (including matters affecting compensation, employment services, benefits, employee relations, training and organizational development, organizational structure and succession planning). This committee will not consider personnel issues specific to an individual employee.
The committee will review matters related to finance and administrative operations (including matters affecting budgeting, insurance, investments, facilities, purchasing, capital improvements, information services, technology, safety and security, but excluding personnel matters). The committee will monitor the financial performance of the College and the strategic direction of the Foundation to ensure alignment with the College's strategic priorities.
The committee will review matters related to instructional affairs and student engagement (including matters affecting academics, equitable student access and success, learning engagement, learning outcomes, curricular changes; and faculty and student development); accreditation and related initiatives; workforce development/continuing education; and, Kansas Board of Regents requirements (including Performance Indicators that relate to curriculum, academic quality, achievement of academic outcomes, and promote student learning).
