DECEMBER REGULAR BOARD MEETING NOT TO BE HELD

Workshop replacing Board meeting on  December 11 to be run by Carver Policy Governance consultant 

The Yavapai Community College District Governing Board will not hold a regular Board meeting in December. However, it has scheduled a workshop for Monday, December 11, 2017 to begin at 9 AM. The workshop will be held at the Rock House on the Prescott Campus, 1100 E. Sheldon St., Prescott.

It is expected that the session will be run by another Carver Governing Board Policy Process consultant.  The Board Chair appears enamored with the Carver model of policy governance and consistently brings outside consultants to workshops and retreats in his effort to propagandize members about the model.    

From the Blog’s perspective Board member time would be better spent thoroughly examining, discussing and then listing  the top priorities for using College property tax revenue. For example, should the College have its first priority as education and its faculty?   (What does that mean?)  Why does it continue to spend millions every year on building/renovating structures and new parking lots rather than invest in more educational programs?  What is the ethical (legal) responsibility of a Board member to County taxpayers when it comes to providing the City of Prescott with amenities like the indoor therapy pool, the professional tennis complex, and the dinner theater — amenities the College has already built for that city using revenue paid by all taxpayers in the County?
