The meeting was called to order by Ed Omiecinski at 10:05AM, in the J.S. Coon building, room 150.


The minutes from last month’s meeting were distributed.  Reta Pikowsky distributed a draft of the procedure for approving student absences.   Since we did not have a quorum, we continued with an informal discussion of the proposed procedure. At our next meeting, we plan on voting to adopt the proposed excused absence procedure.  After that, we will present it to the GT Academic Senate requesting that this change be made to the institute statutes.


The meeting was adjourned at 10:30AM.
