Governing Board Chair Sigafoos’ summary of retreat puts focus on Verde campus and Sedona Center over next year
Yavapai Community College Board Chair Ray Sigafoos summarized a portion of the recommendations being made as a part of the Board’s spring retreat. The retreat was held September 8-9 on the Prescott campus. The Board recommendations included the following:
A. Expand Career and Technical education in the Verde Valley.
B. Expand Community event opportunity in the Verde Valley.
C. Expand programming at the Sedona Center.
D. Work/educate the Verde Valley Advisory Committee to the Governing Board.
E. Board needs more information before deciding on an independent administrative college for the Verde Valley. Prefers to wait until the Verde Valley committees have time to work with the Board and College. The additional costs of setting up an independent Verde Valley campus was estimated by the College staff at $1.2 million dollars.
