Subject of Possible Rule Making: Complaint procedures of Bellevue Community College.

Statutes Authorizing the Agency to Adopt Rules on this Subject: Chapter 34.05 RCW and RCW 28B.50.140.

Reasons Why Rules on this Subject may be Needed and What They Might Accomplish: Bellevue Community College currently has three separate procedures covering different kinds of complaints - discrimination, academic and general. The college is exploring the advisability of combining all three procedures into one document to make them easier to use and administer. The discrimination complaint procedure is already covered under WAC 132H-152-135. If the changes are approved, this WAC would be included within the changes and would be amended.

Other Federal and State Agencies that Regulate this Subject and the Process Coordinating the Rule with These Agencies: None.

Process for Developing New Rule: Negotiated rule making.

Interested parties can participate in the decision to adopt the new rule and formulation of the proposed rule before publication by contacting Elise Erickson, Executive Assistant to the President, Bellevue Community College, 3000 Landerholm Circle S.E., Bellevue, WA 98007-6484, phone (425) 564-2302, fax (425) 564-2261.

Meetings will be held with different constituent groups impacted by potential changes throughout the year. Contact Mrs. Erickson's office for the precise schedule.
