Salish Kootenai College maintains policies and procedures that assist the College to accomplish its mission, maintain accountability, provide clear and concise guidelines for employees, students, and other stakeholders, and clarify how the College does business.
All college policies and procedures will be reviewed on a cyclic schedule at a minimum of every three (3) years to ensure they are up to date, efficient, and in compliance with tribal, state, and federal laws as well as accreditation requirements. This review schedule does not preclude revision of any policy at any time deemed necessary by the Board of Directors or college administration.
The Board of Directors has delegated the primary responsibility for policy review to the Salish Kootenai College Policy Review Committee. Proposed changes to existing policies or new policies are to be reviewed by the Board of Directors. The Board of Directors maintains final authority for approval of all Salish Kootenai College policies.
College policies are reviewed according to the related procedure, Procedure 165. Any employee or member of the Board of Directors may submit suggestions for revisions to existing policy or procedure or development of a new policy. Suggestions are submitted to the Human Resources Office for consideration by the Policy Review Committee.
The most current version of each policy and procedure is available on the College’s website and the original plus revised versions are maintained in the Human Resources Office. The documents on the SKC Policies, Procedures, and Manuals website constitute the only official college-wide policies for Salish Kootenai College.
