Staff Meeting Minutes
August 26, 2010

Welcome - Lynn Rawls

Approval of Minutes
Mary Lathan Steele made a motion to accept as emailed and the motion was seconded by Perry Wilson. The motion passed.

Dr. Wyatt reminded us that the theme for this year is “Superior, Superb Service.” Our objective is to give exceptional service to make every student feel special. He also asked us to help with the College clean up by picking up trash as we go along our way on campus.

Student/Parent Orientation and FERPA – Steve Terry
• FERPA laws prohibit us from sharing any information about students, even with their parents.
• “Target X” Consultants will report on their findings on November 4th — try to attend one of the sessions at 8:30, 11:30 and 3:30.

Post Office/Copier Updates – Tarshia Edwards
• The $30 balance problem will be corrected by 1:00 pm today. If you are having a problem with setting up a pin or any other copier issues, please email Tarshia. 
• Work-study students are entering mailbox numbers into Datatel. You can view these numbers on the ‘DADD’ screen. All student numbers are four digits long and begin with 2 or 3. If you see three digit numbers in Datatel, they are old. Please don’t use those.
• Approximately ½ of ALPHA students have requested mailboxes. If any others would like to have a box, please ask them to see Tarshia or Elaine in the mailroom.
