Hearing Location(s): Bellevue College, 3000 Landerholm Circle S.E., East Boardroom, Room B201B, Bellevue, WA 98007, on March 7, 2016 [2017], at 1:00 p.m.

Purpose of the Proposal and Its Anticipated Effects, Including Any Changes in Existing Rules: Community College District VIII is repealing the existing WAC. The current language is confusing and no longer complies with requirements of federal agencies. There is also no need for the process to be a part of the Washington Administrative Code. The process that was previously in code will be clarified, updated and placed in policy and procedure at the college.
Reasons Supporting Proposal: Current chapter 132H-155 WAC is confusing. The college will clarify the existing policy and it will be policy and procedure at the college level only. The new language will provide additional clarity and consistency in the process.
Statutory Authority for Adoption: Chapter 34.05 RCW and RCW 28B.50.140.
