The Seward County Community College Board of Trustees Monday reviewed a proposal to participate in a statewide facility evaluation project, discussed the accreditation process and closed out the 2006-07 school year.

The Kansas Association of Community College Trustees (KACCT) is interested in participating in a study that would identify facility needs among all 19 Kansas community colleges, Board Member Marvin Chance, Jr., SCCC's KACCT representative, told the board. If approved, all of the community colleges would jointly hire a company to visit each of the participating institutions and conduct an independent needs assessment of all facilities.
