Purpose of the Proposal and Its Anticipated Effects, Including Any Changes in Existing Rules: The current grievance procedure for Title IX is not required to be codified under WAC for Shoreline Community College under RCW 34.05.010(16).
Reasons Supporting Proposal: The grievance procedure for Title IX, WAC 132G-300-010, does not meet the definition of a "rule" under RCW 34.05.010(16) as [it] only serves to identify the procedure in place following receipt of a Title IX complaint. The college has adopted policy language reflecting best practices in Title IX procedures which do not need to be codified in WAC. With this in mind, the college is proposing the elimination of this unnecessary rule related to the Title IX grievance procedure.
Statutory Authority for Adoption: 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: Alison Stevens, Administration Building 1000, Room 1003A, 206-546-4651.
A cost-benefit analysis is not required under RCW 34.05.328. The cost-benefit analysis in RCW 34.05.328 does not apply to this college rule.
This rule proposal, or portions of the proposal, is exempt from requirements of the Regulatory Fairness Act because the proposal:
Is exempt under RCW 19.85.025(3) as the rules relate only to internal governmental operations that are not subject to violation by a nongovernment party.
