Subject of Possible Rule Making: Chapter 132G-121 WAC, Student conduct.
Statutes Authorizing the Agency to Adopt Rules on this Subject: Title IX of Education Amendments of 1972, RCW 28B.50.140
Reasons Why Rules on this Subject may be Needed and What They Might Accomplish: The Department of Education (DOE) issued updated Title IX rules on May 22, 2020, which take effect August 14, 2020, forward. The updated rules will incorporate new Title IX student conduct code requirements that necessitate Shoreline Community College amending chapter 132G-121 WAC, Student conduct rules to remain in compliance with the updated DOE requirements. The college will also consider other changes to the student conduct rules to update them for compliance with current best practices.

The state board for community and technical colleges has general supervision and control over the community and technical college system but does not regulate each college's rule-making activity.
Process for Developing New Rule: Agency study.
Interested parties can participate in the decision to adopt the new rule and formulation of the proposed rule before publication by contacting Veronica Zura, 16101 Greenwood Avenue North, Shoreline, WA 98021, phone 206-546-4769, fax 206-546-5850, TTY 206-546-4520, email firstname.lastname@example.org.
