The Flint Hills Technical College Board of Trustees has passed new policies regarding domestic violence and academic overload.
Board members passed adjustments to bolster current policy, mainly on dating violence and stalking. Vice President of Student Services Lisa Kirmer says Flint Hills Technical College has always had an anti-harassment, anti-violence policy on campus.
The academic overload policy adds a 10-credit hour maximum for summer classes with exceptions for nursing, machine tool technology and power plant technology. The 20-hour overload cap for fall and spring semester classes remains as is.
In addition, board members briefly discussed the fiscal 2015 budget. That will likely be brought back for approval next month once negotiations end with teachers and staff. Those negotiations are set to begin this week.
