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, and 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.
Individuals convicted of sex or kidnapping offenses are required to self-disclose such status
to the Chief Student Services Officer prior to admission as a condition of enrollment.
Failure to comply may be grounds for denial of admission or expulsion from CCS.
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.
