Senate Information Reports:
Senator Lawyer also attended a K-12 meeting. They had a presentation about technology. K-12 teachers, especially those that have been teaching for many years, need technology courses to become current in those areas. U of I and LCSC will work together on this issue.
Vice President Sonnen: Stated that one of the presidential candidates was asked, "With LCSC's lower student to faculty ratio, should LCSC students pay higher fees?"
President Wright: He felt that they had an angle in asking that question. LCSC has more of a small "private" school atmosphere, therefore, they think that students should pay more like the private institutions.
Senator Lawyer - Plans to draft a letter to the State Board of Education pointing out that LCSC was lumped together with all the other schools when it came to fee discussion. She wants to point out that where other schools were asking for ballrooms and climbing walls, LCSC was asking for additional funds.
Vice President Sonnen - Talked about the meal plans students purchase. She will investigate this issue further.
Senator Lawyer - The differential fee issue will be on the SBOE agenda in August when they meet in Coeur d'Alene. She hopes that the new Senate will pass a summer budget to include travel to the Coeur d'Alene meetings in August.
Senate Majority Leader Ochszner - At last Thursday's Round Table meeting it was decided that Sine Die would be on May 8th with the end of semester party on May 10th.
Senator Oglesby asked about the final ASB project. It will be discussed on Thursday.
Senator Lawyer - Something to bring up to the SUB Board next year is possibly moving the bulletin board located in the game room area to a more visible location.
Melissa Nelson - Updated everyone on the softball event last Saturday. LCSC lost to Good Times 105. Don't forget the Jello eating contest tomorrow at noon.
