Subject of Possible Rule Making: Skagit Valley College intends to permanently repeal its rule concerning sexual harassment, WAC 132D-305-005.
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: This rule change is needed because Skagit Valley College has already updated and clarified its sexual harassment policy in a revised policy/procedure for prevention of sexual harassment and discrimination. The college intends to permanently repeal WAC 132D-305-005 to implement the updated policy changes in line with the most recent guidance from the United States Department of Education's Office for Civil Rights, Title IX guidance letters, Violence Against Women Act, and Campus SaVE.
Process for Developing New Rule: Negotiated rule making.
