PITTSBURG, Kan. (AP) -- Talks to change and improve an existing partnership between Fort Scott Community College and Pittsburg State University have stalled.

The community college's Board of Trustees on Monday voted to discontinue the discussions.

The Joplin Globe reports (http://bit.ly/1h07Moy ) the two schools have had a partnership since 1985, with some Fort Scott operations in Crawford County. Community college students also can take courses and live in Pittsburg State dorms.

Senior officials at both schools were discussing a more formal partnership, with a goal of being more efficient.

Fort Scott president Clayton Tatro says he was surprised by the board's decision. He says the primary concerns seem to be about governance issues and a loss of identity for the community college.
