NOTICE TO STUDENTS REGARDING RELIGIOUS ACCOMMODATIONS FOR POSTSECONDARY STUDENTS
In accordance with WA Senate Bill 5166, student absences at a postsecondary school for reasons of faith or conscience, or for an organized activity conducted under the auspices of a religious denomination, church, or religious organization, may be taken after written notice to the school. DIT will reasonably accommodate excused student absences due to observance of religious holidays.
- Any student seeking reasonable accommodations under this section must provide written notice to the Director or Assistant Director of Training, within the first two weeks of the beginning of the course, of the specific dates the student requests accommodations regarding examinations or other activities.
- DIT faculty will work with students to reasonably accommodate students who, due to the observance of religious holidays, expect to be absent or endure a significant hardship during certain days of the course or program. “Reasonably accommodate” means coordinating with the student on scheduling examinations or other activities necessary for completion of the program and includes rescheduling examinations or activities or offering different times for the student to complete examinations or activities.
- DIT students are not required to pay a fee for seeking reasonable accommodation under this section.
- The School is licensed under Chapter 28C.10 RCW.
