Public Hearing Notices

Bates Technical College is reviewing some of its Washington Administrative Codes (WAC). Part of the review process includes the college hosting a Public Hearing to provide an opportunity for members of the community to learn about the revisions being made and to comment on the WAC under consideration.

Due to COVID-19 and physical distancing, the following four WAC Public Hearings are scheduled for August and will be held through Zoom, a virtual platform. However, if you do not have access to technology or are unavailable on the date and time of the Public Hearing, you may email Dr. Jean Hernandez, Special Assistant to the President, to receive a copy of the WAC that is being revised and submit your questions or comments to her through email. Her email address is:
