NOTICE OF PUBLIC HEARING

RENTON TECHNICAL COLLEGE

Renton Technical College, Community College District 27, state of Washington, 3000 Fourth Street, Renton, WA, will hold a virtual Public Hearing, as part of the permanent rule-making process, on March 24, 2021, at 3 p.m. Attendees may join via video or phone. The purpose of the hearing is to receive comments on proposed rule changes amending Chapter 495E-110 WAC which relate to the Student Conduct Code and Hearing Procedures for Renton Technical College.

To further explain the purpose of the hearing, Renton Technical College is updating its Student Conduct Code and Hearing Procedures. This update incorporates the new Title IX regulations issued from the Department of Education, Office of Civil Rights that took effect on August 14, 2020. Higher education institutions receiving federal funds are required to adopt these regulations to be in compliance. These new regulations were adopted via an emergency rule during a special session of the RTC Board of Trustees on August 12, 2020. The college then began the permanent rule-making process to incorporate the new Title IX regulations into an updated Student Conduct Code and Hearing Procedures. The state community and technical colleges’ Assistant Attorney Generals worked with the Washington State Student Services Commission members to ensure that the codes and hearing procedures are compliant with federal law, including Title IX.
