Title of Rule and Other Identifying Information: Sexual harassment.
Hearing Location(s): Seattle Colleges, Siegal Center, 1st Floor Boardroom, 1500 Harvard Avenue, Seattle, WA 98122, on August 30, 2017, at 1:00 – 3:00.

Purpose of the Proposal and Its Anticipated Effects, Including Any Changes in Existing Rules: Repeal outdated WAC, leaving internal sexual harassment policy and procedure.
Reasons Supporting Proposal: The sexual harassment policy does not need to be codified under RCW 34.05.010 (16)(i) and (iv) and is inconsistent with the district's internal sexual harassment policy.
Statutory Authority for Adoption: RCW 28B.50.140(13).
Statute Being Implemented: RCW 28B.50.140(13).
Rule is not necessitated by federal law, federal or state court decision.

Name of Agency Personnel Responsible for Drafting, Implementation, and Enforcement: Dave Blake, Siegal Center, (206) 934-4136.
No small business economic impact statement has been prepared under chapter 19.85 RCW. This internal policy will have no impact on small businesses.
A cost-benefit analysis is not required under RCW 34.05.328. The district is not one of the enumerated agencies in RCW 34.05.328(5), and the proposed rule change is internal to the district.
