Subject of Possible Rule Making: Chapter 132U-140 WAC, Use of college facilities.
Statutes Authorizing the Agency to Adopt Rules on this Subject: Chapter 28B.50 RCW, Community and technical colleges; RCW 28B.50.100 Board of trustees—Generally and 28B.50.140 Board of trustees—Powers and duties.
Reasons Why Rules on this Subject may be Needed and What They Might Accomplish: The existing chapter 132U-140 WAC, Use of college facilities, needs to be updated based upon the model policy and procedures prepared by the office of the attorney general for community and technical colleges.
Other Federal and State Agencies that Regulate this Subject and the Process Coordinating the Rule with These Agencies: The proposed policy revisions for chapter 132U-140 WAC provide clear definitions, priorities, and limitations for use of college facilities based upon best practices from other Washington community and technical colleges. This model policy was developed by the AAG for colleges in order to adhere to relevant federal and state regulations.
Process for Developing New Rule: Agency study.
Interested parties can participate in the decision to adopt the new rule and formulation of the proposed rule before publication by contacting Sheila Pennell, WCC Rules Coordinator, 237 West Kellogg Road, Bellingham, WA 98226, (360) 383-3077,
