The committee reviewed policies AC-R and IHBAL. They requested further clarification.  Some members of the board were hesitant making the change noting IHBAL is built around the Federal Rehabilitation Act when policy AC references the Americans with Disability Act.  The language of AC does not line up with the language of IHBAL.  The question - is our policy AC sufficient to support AC-R.   Motion by Kati McCormick to table for further clarification, second by Pia Holmes, so moved 3-0.
