SFCC Policies

Sex Offender Registry

The federal Campus Sex Crimes Prevention Act enacted on October 28, 2000 requires all colleges to issue a statement advising the campus community where information on registered sex offenders who are employed, enrolled, or volunteering at this institution can be obtained.

Sex Offender Notification

Sex offenders (includes kidnappers), Level I, II & III, are required by law to register with the county sheriff in the county where they reside. The law requires that they also inform the county sheriff if they register for school. The county sheriff, in turn, is required to notify the school. These notifications are intended to inform rather than create panic.

CCS is bound by state law to be an open door admission institution and only those situations where a prospective or enrolled student is determined to be disruptive to the educational environment or would not benefit from enrollment will admission be denied or revoked.

Notifications of sex offenders enrolling in Community Colleges of Spokane are received from the Spokane County Sheriff's department and are sent to the campus vice presidents for student services where they are maintained. The campus VPs make decisions based on the offender's profile regarding restrictions, if any, which may be imposed on this student.

CCS Sex Offender Policy

Individuals convicted of sex or kidnapping offenses are required to self-disclose such status to the SFCC Vice President of Student Services, (509) 533-3514, prior to admission as a condition of enrollment. Failure to comply may be grounds for denial of admission or expulsion from CCS. (BOT Policy 2.30.05)
