PREPROPOSAL STATEMENT OF INQUIRY

PIERCE COLLEGE


[ Filed January 23, 2001, 10:25 a.m. ]

Subject of Possible Rule Making: WAC 132K-122-020(3).

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

Reasons Why Rules on this Subject may be Needed and What They Might Accomplish: Amending the definition of directory information in WAC 132K-122-020(3) will allow the college to expand/delete items designated as directory information without having to revise the WAC each time.

Other Federal and State Agencies that Regulate this Subject and the Process Coordinating the Rule with These Agencies: Department of Education - 34 C.F.R. Part 99 (Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act). In compliance with FERPA, Pierce College will annually notify students of the specific information in their education records designated as directory information. To our knowledge, no other process is required for coordinating the rule with the Department of Education.

Process for Developing New Rule: Take the revised definition of directory information and the items Pierce College will designate as directory information to the following for input: Student Services Council, Council for Learning and Student Success; College Cabinet; Student Government bodies, AG's Office, Academic Divisions, and the Executive Team of Pierce College.

Interested parties can participate in the decision to adopt the new rule and formulation of the proposed rule before publication by contacting Cynthia Torres-Jimenez, 9401 Farwest Drive S.W., Lakewood, WA 98498-1999, office (253) 964-6623, fax (253) 964-6427, e-mail ctorres@pierce.ctc.edu.
