Public Records Request

Policy

In 1972, Washington enacted the Public Records Act (RCW 42.56) to assure citizens of the state transparency and access to government. As a state agency, Cascadia College is subject to the provisions of Washington state laws governing access to public records and will respond accordingly. The full public records policy of the college is established in 132Z-276 WAC.
