If any college staff member has cause to believe that a student presents an imminent danger to him/herself or other persons on college facilities or to the educational process of the college, then the staff member shall have authority to immediately remove the student from the college premises.
The college staff member shall notify, as soon as possible, the vice president for student services or designee who may initiate summary suspension until such time as the college staff is satisfied the student’s dangerous nature has ceased. The duration of summary suspension shall not exceed ten (10) instructional days, except that the vice president for student services or designee may continue summary suspension beyond ten (10) instructional days in circumstances where the student continues to present an imminent danger to the people, facilities, or the educational process pending the disciplinary proceedings provided for in this code.
If the vice president for student services or designee desires to exercise the authority to summarily suspend a student, the vice president or designee will cause the student to be notified of the summary suspension.
A formal hearing, pursuant to the provisions of WAC 495C-120-160 will be scheduled and held as quickly as feasible. Provided the hearing shall be conducted by a designee who has not participated in making the decision to impose the summary suspension.
Any student found to have violated chapter 69.41 RCW, illegal drugs, by virtue of a criminal conviction or by final decision of the college president or designee shall, in lieu of or in addition to any other disciplinary action which may be imposed, be disqualified from participation in any school-sponsored events or activities.
