Summary suspension procedures.

(1) Initiation of summary suspension procedures. The vice president for student services, or designee, may suspend any student of the college for not more than ten calendar days pending investigation, action or initiating disciplinary proceedings of alleged violation(s) of the college code, if the vice president for student services has reason to believe the student's presence presents an immediate danger to the public health, safety or welfare requiring immediate action.
(2) Permission to enter or remain on campus. During the period of summary suspension, the suspended student shall not enter the campus of the college or any facility under the operation of the college other than to meet with the vice president for student services or to attend the disciplinary hearing. However, the vice president for student services may grant the student special permission to enter a campus for the express purpose of meeting with faculty, staff, or students in preparation for the disciplinary hearing.
(3) Notice of order of summary suspension proceedings.
(a) If the vice president for student services or designee finds it necessary to exercise the authority to summarily suspend a student, he/she shall:
(i) Send a notice including a brief statement of reason for the decision (findings of fact and conclusions of law); and
(ii) The corrective action or punishment which may be imposed against the student; that anything the student says to the vice president may be used against the student; and that the student may either accept the disciplinary action or, within forty-eight hours or two academic days following receipt of the notice, file at the office of the vice president for student services, an appeal to the student judicial board. If the appeal is not filed within the prescribed time, it will be deemed waived. The college shall maintain its official record all documents considered or prepared regarding the matter.
(b) Appeal and disciplinary hearing. The hearing shall be held according to the process set forth in WAC 132X-60-105. Failure by the student to appear at the hearing with the student judicial board may result in the vice president for student services or designee suspending the student from the college.
(4) Classroom summary suspension and appeal process. Nothing herein shall prevent faculty members from taking summary action as may be reasonably necessary to maintain order when they have reason to believe that such action is necessary for the public health, safety or welfare requiring immediate college action or where the student's conduct materially and substantially disrupts the educational process.
(a) Such summary action in the form of removal from the classroom shall be effective for a period not to exceed three scheduled classroom days.
(b) The faculty member must immediately report such suspension to the vice president for student services who will follow the process in subsections (1), (2) and (3) of this section.
(c) Any summary action may be appealed immediately in writing by the student to the vice president for student services.
(d) The vice president for student services must decide the appeal within twenty-four hours' receipt of the appeal and their decision is final.
