Janice Richards, President, called meeting to order at 11:30 A.M.
Sam Gardipe, Jr.– opening prayer
*Shirley Lewis – provided Literature on “Students with Disabilities”
Janice – not written in policy that the incoming students have to take placement test.
- Catalog states “may be asked to take a placement test”

Group discussion on the Math placement test
Jennifer Sierra – do we want the policy changed to say –
- Entering Freshman only and/or returning students
Sam Gardipe – question new status sheets
Jennifer S. – students have to change to new status sheets after sitting out one semester
*Review of minutes dated 02-11-2005
*Motion to approve – Shirley Lewis
*2nd – Sylvia Hollow Horn
*All in favor
Leslie Mesteth – who do we make a recommendation to for this change
Steven Potter – who does this affect
Leslie Heathershaw – other college have same policy
- Jenzabar is giving students access to get an unofficial grade report
Janice – Tribal programs are seeing and accepting more and more Jenzabar grade report
instead of official transcripts
Leslie H. – Students are asking/saying how can they pay their bills here at OLC if they
can’t get a job without transcript. Without a job they can’t pay back what they owe.
Lynn Ecoffey – states that Billi and the Registrar office has always worked with students
in the past to set up a payment plan. Once that is set up she will send out transcripts.
Group discussion on should access to grade reports on Jenzabar be blocked. By allowing grade reports to be printed, it causes a loop hole of OLC not getting monies owed.
Jenzabar access denied for grade report printing
Motion for Steven Potter to work with Billi and Registrar Office to stop further grade report access.
Motion by Steven Potter
2nd – Sylvia Hollow Horn
All in favor
Changes need to be to Billi by the end of the contract year (June 05).
Handbooks are printed in July of each year.
Students With Disabilities:
Discussion held of paragraph needing to be added to the Handbook
Vienna Kills Warrior – wording of this needs to be looked at very carefully.
Shirley Lewis – in future need to post this information at the college centers.
Vienna – need to make sure wording meets the Support Services Program. Suggested a committee be formed to research.
Vienna Kills Warrior
Darleen Bear Killer - need to look in Policy and Procedure to see what services we can provide before changing our words to say we can offer what we don’t have means to.
