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 placed in binders and are available for viewing.
Notifications are also published in the campus newspapers. The campus VPs make decisions
based on the offender's profile regarding restrictions, if any, which may be imposed
on this student.
