The Tyler Junior College board of trustees is expected to vote on several agreements related to on-campus services during a meeting today.
This includes Follett Higher Education Group for campus bookstore operation and management; East Texas Medical Center for on-campus clinic services; and PLATO Learning Professional Services for 75 additional licenses.
PLATO is an online learning environment used for some of the college’s remedial courses.
In addition, the board will consider a formal agreement with Cantex, a health care services company. The college provides shelter for certain Cantex facility nursing home residents during emergency evacuations.
Peters said the letter of understanding with Cantex includes a language change to further limit the college’s liability.
The $25 million bond proposal passed by 283 votes. Some 1,656 people, or 55 percent, voted for the proposal; 1,373 people, or 45 percent, voted against it.
The board will meet at 11 a.m. in the White Administrative Services Center Board Room on the college’s main campus, 1400 E. Fifth St.
A 10:30 a.m. board workshop will take place in the Board Conference Room. Both meetings are open to the public.
