WSR 16-22-077
[Filed November 1, 2016, 2:28 p.m.]
Subject of Possible Rule Making: WAC 132E-120-380 Equal opportunity—Title IX and 132E-120-385 Equal opportunity—Title IX procedures.
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: Title IX is federal law that prohibits discrimination based on sex in all institutions that receive federal funding. Everett Community College's current Equal opportunityTitle IX policy and procedure need to be updated in response to recently updated federal regulations. This policy and procedure ensure the college's compliance with nondiscrimination regulations at the federal and state levels.
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 Jennifer Howard, Vice-President of Administrative Services, Everett Community College, 2000 Tower Street, Everett, WA 98201, e-mail, fax (425) 388-9228, or phone (425) 388-9232. Board of trustee meetings, in which public comment is received, occur the third Tuesday of the month, 5 p.m. at the Jackson Center Senate Room, 2000 Tower, Everett, WA 98201.
