The IVCCD board of directors became the first Iowa community college board to approve redistricting plans as mandated by the Iowa Code to reflect changes in population.
The redistricting involves changes to all but one of Iowa Valley's seven director districts. The newly approved director district parameters are detailed on the district's website at www.iavalley.edu/district/administration.html.
The Iowa Valley board heard a presentation from Marshalltown Community College Humanities faculty members and selected students about the newly published 2012-13 Timber Creek Collection. The Collection features artwork, photography, poetry and creative writing from several talented MCC students. Students Kathy Holtsclaw, Guadalupe Vasquez-Iacona, Chantel Woerner and Terry Wegman discussed their creative projects with the board members.
Three gift donations were accepted by the board: a donation of $250 from Robert and Linda Moore to the Friends of the Orpheum campaign; a donation of hex bars valued at $5,345 from Jackie Harrill to MCC; and a donation of hex bars valued at $5,345 from Dale Suhr to MCC.
In other business, the board held separate closed sessions to discuss Chancellor Chris Duree's annual performance evaluation and collective bargaining strategy, but took no action upon re-entering open session.
The next regular meeting of the IVCCD board of directors will be at 4 p.m. on June 12 at the Iowa Valley Grinnell campus.
