Conduct and Disciplinary Procedures and Policies

Anti-Harassment Policy

As a part of continuing efforts by Perry Technical Institute to prevent unlawful discrimination, and pursuant to guidelines issued by the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission and the Washington Human Rights Commission, the school endorses the following policy:

All are reminded that each student is at all times to be treated courteously by fellow students, so that he or she is free from harassment or interference.

Harassment is defined as unwelcome or unsolicited verbal, physical or sexual conduct which creates an intimidating, offensive, or hostile environment. Examples of what may be considered harassment, depending on the circumstances, are (but not limited to):

  • Questions or comments that unnecessarily infringe on personal privacy or offensive, sexist, off-color or sexual remarks, jokes, slurs or propositions or comments that disparage a person or group on the basis of race, color, age (40 and over), sex, sexual orientation, pregnancy, gender or gender identity, creed, disability, religion, national origin, ethnic background, military service, or citizenship
  • Derogatory or suggestive posters, cartoons, photographs, calendars, graffiti, drawings, other materials, electronic mail, or gestures
  • Inappropriate touching, hitting, pushing, or other aggressive physical contact or threats to take such action
  • Tampering with another student’s work, lab or workspace

PTI will promptly investigate all charges of violation of this policy. The confidentiality of the person reporting violations will be respected so far as practical in conducting an investigation of such claims. Retaliation against persons involved in such complaints is strictly prohibited.

Conduct Standards

Admission to Perry Technical Institute carries with it the expectation that students will conduct themselves as responsible members of the school community, that they will comply with the rules and regulations of the institution, maintain high standards of integrity and honesty, respect the rights, privileges, and property of other members of the school community, and will not interfere with legitimate Perry Technical Institute affairs.

Perry Technical Institute maintains the right to make and enforce rules for conduct. This includes the right to dismiss at any time a student whose conduct, academic standing, or health is such that the administration believes it undesirable for that student to continue at Perry Technical Institute.

In all instances of student conduct policy violations, Perry Technical Institute adheres to the preponderance of evidence standard. Under a preponderance of evidence standard, a decision of responsibility is based on whether it is “more likely than not” that the alleged policy violation occurred. Determining responsibility under a preponderance of evidence standard requires that more than 50% of the evidence points toward an individual responsible for the policy violation in question.

Disability Accommodations

It is the policy of Perry Technical Institute (PTI) to comply with all federal and state laws concerning facility access and the education of qualified individuals with disabilities. PTI will provide reasonable accommodations to students if the school is notified that a student with a disability requires an accommodation in order to pursue or continue training at Perry Technical Institute. An accommodation is not intended to lower or to substantially modify a course of study or its standards or expectations. PTI will work with the student to reasonably accommodate him or her so that he or she can learn in the classroom and lab settings, unless the accommodation causes undue hardship, fundamentally alters the program or course of study or causes undue financial burdens.

Contact the Education Department with any questions or requests for accommodation, by email, or by phone 509.453.0374. Information related to an accommodation request will be treated as confidential, except that: a) faculty and department heads may be informed, on a need-to-know basis, regarding necessary restrictions on the work or assignments of the student and any necessary accommodations, b) first aid and safety personnel may be informed, when appropriate, if the disability might require emergency treatment, and c) government officials investigating compliance with the Americans with Disabilities Act shall be provided relevant information on request. The Education Department may require professional documentation to support a request for certain accommodations.

ADA Grievance Procedure

Perry Technical Institute prohibits discrimination on the basis of disability by faculty, staff, students, and visitors. Perry Technical Institute has adopted an internal grievance procedure providing for the prompt and equitable resolution of complaints by any member of the Perry Technical Institute community.

The procedure can be viewed at Any applicant, student, staff, faculty, or visitor who believes they have been the subject of discrimination on the basis of disability (or is unsatisfied with accommodations provided) may submit a grievance under this procedure.

The Benefits Manager has been designated to coordinate the efforts of Perry Technical Institute to comply with Section 504 and the ADA for students. They can be reached by phone at 509.453.0374 x5782, and by email at 

Service and Emotional Support Animal Policy

Service animals, as defined by the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA), are dogs or miniature horses individually trained to do work or perform specific tasks for the benefit of a person with a disability. Examples of such work or tasks include guiding people who are blind, alerting people who are deaf, pulling a wheelchair, responding to and protecting a person who is having a seizure, or performing other duties.

Service animals are working animals, not pets. The work or task a service animal has been trained to provide must be directly related to the person’s disability. Animals whose sole function is to provide comfort or emotional support do not qualify as service animals under the ADA guidelines and are not permitted on Perry Tech’s campus.

Service animals must be housebroken, must be clean and well cared for, and must remain on-leash and under the control of the handler at all times. If the service animal is out of control, or demonstrates a direct threat to the safety and health of any member of the campus community or PTI property, the school reserves the right to remove the service animal. The handler will be held responsible for any damage to Perry Technical Institute property or facilities.

Any questions or concerns regarding service animals on campus should be raised with the Associate Dean of Education or Benefits Manager.

Drug-Free and Alcohol-Free Campus and Workplace

In accordance with federal law, Perry Technical Institute has adopted this Drug-Free and Alcohol-Free Campus and Workplace Policy. Perry Technical Institute recognizes that students and employees have a right to a safe and secure campus and workplace and has implemented a drug and alcohol abuse prevention and assistance program. Furthermore, Perry Technical Institute recognizes that employers who hire students from its programs demand employees who are drug free. PTI has adopted this policy to encourage students to develop a healthy lifestyle and to ensure that graduates are able to meet the demands of employers.

Standards of Conduct Regarding Drugs and Alcohol

The unlawful manufacturing, distribution, dispensing, possession or use of any federally banned substance; prescribed medical drugs that were unlawfully obtained or are being unlawfully or abusively used; drug-related paraphernalia; or being under-the-influence of controlled substances are prohibited at Perry Technical Institute, in the workplace, on campus, while engaging in school business, and at any activities sponsored by Perry Technical Institute. Returning or arriving to school after consuming drugs or alcohol is prohibited and will result in immediate dismissal.

Any student who is taking a drug or medication, whether or not prescribed by the student’s physician, which may adversely affect that student’s ability to perform work in a safe or productive manner, is required to report such use of medication to his/her instructor or department head. This includes drugs known or advertised as possibly affecting judgment, coordination, or any of the senses, including those which may cause drowsiness or dizziness. A doctor, dentist, or druggist will determine whether the student can remain at school and whether any work restrictions are necessary. The instructor may request such assistance as he/she desires in making the determination.

Health Risks

Short-term and long-term effects of drug use vary for specific drugs, but the following nonexclusive list of health risks have been identified with the use and abuse of illicit drugs and alcohol: confusion, lack of coordination, memory loss, depression, fetal alcohol syndrome, problem pregnancies, sclerosis, circulatory problems, insomnia, heart failure, respiratory arrest, cardiac arrest, seizures, coma, anxiety, paranoia, irritability, fatigue, mental illness, and death.

Institute Sanctions

Perry Technical Institute will conduct drug and/or alcohol testing under any of the following circumstances:

Random Testing

Students may be selected at random for drug and/or alcohol testing at any interval determined by Perry Technical Institute. Any student who enrolls at Perry Technical Institute gives consent to random drug tests as an express condition of his or her enrollment and continued enrollment.

For-Cause Testing

Perry Technical Institute may ask a student to submit to a drug and/or alcohol test at any time it believes that the student may be under the influence of drugs or alcohol, including, but not limited to, the following circumstances: evidence of drugs or alcohol on or about the student’s person or in the student’s vicinity, unusual conduct on the student’s part that suggests impairment or influence of drugs or alcohol, negative performance patterns, or excessive and unexplained absenteeism or tardiness.

Post-Accident Testing

Any student involved in a training-related accident or injury under circumstances that suggest possible use or influence of drugs or alcohol in the accident or injury event will be asked to submit to a drug and/or alcohol test. “Involved in a training-related accident or injury” means not only the one who was or could have been injured, but also any student who potentially contributed to the accident or injury event in any way.

A student will be presumed under-the-influence upon any positive finding from a random drug test or reasonable cause drug test given under this policy. Drug testing will be by liquid chromatography-mass spectrometry (LC-MS) on Perry Technical Institute time and expense by a certified, creditable laboratory or medical facility prescribed by Perry Technical Institute. Random drug test collection will be conducted on the Perry Technical Institute campus with a minimal disruption to class time. Failure to take a drug test, producing a cold sample, producing a dilute test or tampering with a test will result in a positive test result. A positive test result may result in the imposition of sanctions up to and including, but not limited to, suspension and/or dismissal. A student who has been deemed to be under-the-influence may not operate any vehicle on company property or a public roadway. If the student insists on driving, Perry Technical Institute administration will contact law enforcement and report the infraction.

If a student has violated the Drug-Free and Alcohol-Free Campus and Workplace Policy, Perry Technical Institute may take any of the following actions:

  • Disciplinary action including, but not limited to, suspension and/or dismissal, and/or
  • Require the student to satisfactorily participate in drug abuse assistance or rehabilitation program approved for such purpose by federal, state or local health, law enforcement, or other appropriate agency.

If the student is on a last chance agreement when the drug and alcohol policy is violated, the student will be dismissed.

Any student convicted of any criminal drug statute violation occurring in the workplace, during school hours, or while engaged in Perry Technical Institute business, must notify the president or dean of education no later than five days after such conviction.

Legal Sanctions

In addition to sanctions imposed by Perry Technical Institute, drug and/or alcohol violations may be referred to the appropriate external authorities. This may result in arrest and conviction under applicable criminal laws of the United States, the State of Washington, or local municipalities. Violations as specified above may result in penalties ranging from fines through imprisonment.

Available Assistance Treatment Programs

Alcoholism and drug dependency are defined as illnesses that may interfere with a student’s ability to perform assigned work satisfactorily or that adversely affect classroom behavior. Students are encouraged to voluntarily seek expert assistance for alcoholism, alcohol abuse, or drug dependency. Assistance is available through a variety of professional resources in the community.

Non-Fraternization Policy

Students should be assured that the relationships they develop with the PTI community will always be built upon the highest ethical precepts of the workplace and educational profession.

In order to promote the efficient and fair operation of Perry Technical Institute and to avoid misunderstandings, complaints of favoritism, supervision problems, security problems, morale problems, questions regarding academic achievement and possible claims of sexual harassment, students are strictly prohibited from fraternizing with employees, including but not limited to:

  • Dating
  • Pursuit to date
  • Romantic or sexual relationships with PTI employees (staff or faculty)
  • Monetary transactions of any kind

Sexual Misconduct Policy

Members of the Perry Technical Institute community, guests and visitors have the right to be free from all forms of sex/gender harassment, discrimination and misconduct, examples of which can include acts of sexual violence, sexual harassment, domestic violence, dating violence, and stalking.

All students at Perry Technical Institute shall have the right to learn in an environment free from any form of unlawful discrimination. We expect all members of the campus community to conduct themselves in a manner that does not infringe upon the rights of others. When an allegation of misconduct is brought to the school’s attention, protective and other remedial measures will be used to reasonably ensure that such conduct ends, is not repeated, and the effects on the victim and community are remedied, including serious sanctions when a responding party is found to have violated this policy.

Perry Technical Institute’s Sexual Harassment Policies and Procedures can be viewed online at These Policies and Procedures include our process for looking into and remedying allegations of harassment, sexual misconduct and other forms of discrimination.

Sexual Harassment

Sexual harassment is constituted as discrimination and is prohibited by state and federal laws. Sexual harassment is a form of sexual misconduct. Therefore, it is the position of Perry Technical Institute that sexual harassment will not be tolerated. It is a violation of PTI policy for any supervisor or employee, student, male or female, to engage in sexual harassment as defined below. Such conduct will result in disciplinary action up to and including dismissal.

Sexual harassment is:

  • Unwelcome
  • Sexual, sex-based and/or gender-based
  • Verbal, written, online and/or physical conduct

Sexual harassment may be disciplined when it takes the form of quid pro quo (this for that) harassment, retaliatory harassment, and/or creates a hostile environment.

A hostile environment is created when sexual harassment is:

  • Severe, or
  • Persistent or pervasive, and
  • Unreasonably interferes with, denies or limits someone’s ability to participate in or benefit from PTI’s education program or employment

Quid Pro Quo Sexual Harassment:

Unwelcome sexual advances, requests for sexual favors, and other verbal or physical conduct of a sexual nature by a person having power or authority over another constitutes sexual harassment when submission to such sexual conduct is made (either explicitly or implicitly) a term or condition of rating or evaluating an individual’s educational development or performance.

Some examples of sexual harassment include, but are not limited to:

  • Unwanted sexual advances
  • Offering benefits in exchange for sexual favors
  • Making threatening reprisals after a negative response to sexual advances
  • Visual conduct such as leering, making sexual gestures, or displaying sexually suggestive objects, pictures, cartoons, posters, or electronic mail
  • Verbal conduct such as making derogatory comments, epithets, slurs, sexually explicit jokes, or comments about an individual’s body, dress, gender, sexual orientation or gender identity, sexual innuendo, or gossip about sexual relations
  • Verbal sexual advances or propositions
  • Verbal abuse of a sexual nature, graphic verbal commentary about an individual’s body, sexually degrading words to describe an individual, or suggestive or obscene letters, invitations, notes, e-mails, or text messages.
  • Physical conduct such as touching, assault, or impeding or blocking movement
  • Cyber harassment, including but not limited to disseminating information, photos, or video of a sexual nature without consent
  • Retaliation for reporting harassment or threatening to report harassment
  • Sexual assault, domestic violence, dating violence, and stalking

Any student, who believes he/she has experienced such conduct by anyone should tell the offender that such conduct is unwelcome and unacceptable. If the offensive behavior does not stop, or if the student is uncomfortable confronting the offender, the student must immediately report such conduct to an instructor or to the Title IX Coordinator.

Sexual Misconduct

Perry Technical Institute views sex or gender based discrimination as sexual misconduct, and violations of this policy may result in sanctions. Generally speaking, Perry Technical Institute considers non-consensual sexual intercourse violations to be the most serious of the offenses and the most severe penalties may be imposed, including suspension or expulsion for students and termination for employees.

Consent defined by Washington State law means that at the time of the act of sexual intercourse or sexual contact there are actual words or conduct indicating freely given agreement to have sexual intercourse or sexual contact (RCW 9A.44.010). Sexual intercourse or sexual contact without consent is considered sexual assault and will be treated by PTI as sexual misconduct, treated with all seriousness by the school, and may be subject to criminal proceedings. Acts of sexual misconduct may be committed by any person upon any other person, regardless of the sex, sexual orientation and/or gender identity of those involved.

Violations include:

  • Sexual harassment as defined above
  • Non-consensual sexual Intercourse defined as: Any sexual intercourse, however slight, with any object, by a person upon another person that is without consent and/or by force. Sexual intercourse includes vaginal or anal penetration by a penis, tongue, finger or object, or oral copulation (mouth to genital contact) no matter how slight the penetration or contact.
  • Non-consensual sexual contact defined as: Any intentional sexual touching, however slight, with any object, by a person upon another person that is without consent and/or by force. Sexual touching includes intentional contact with the breasts, groin or genitals, or mouth; touching another with any of these body parts, or making another touch you or themselves with or on any of these body parts; or any other bodily contact in a sexual manner.


Perry Technical Institute encourages reports of unwelcome conduct of a sexual nature. PTI wants to resolve all problems, but it can only do so if it is aware of them. All Perry Technical Institute employees are considered mandatory reporters, and must share information they have related to any Title IX or sexual misconduct policy violations. Furthermore, we encourage any student who believes he/she is being harassed or has been subject to sexual misconduct to report any and all incidents of perceived harassment or sexual misconduct. If at any time you observe harassment or feel you are being harassed or if you observe sexual misconduct or feel you are a victim, you should immediately contact the Title IX Coordinator.

The school’s Title IX Coordinator oversees compliance with all aspects of the sex/gender harassment, discrimination and misconduct policy. The coordinator reports to the president, and is housed in the main building. Questions about this policy should be directed to the Title IX Coordinator. Anyone wishing to make a report relating to discrimination or harassment may do so by reporting the concern to the PTI Title IX Coordinator:

Title IX Coordinator/Director of HR

Perry Technical Institute


Additionally, anonymous reports can be made by victims and/or third parties using the online reporting form posted at Note that these anonymous reports may prompt a need for the institution to investigate. In cases of alleged sexual assault, harassment, etc., victims who come forward to report the incident, and who may have consumed alcohol or drugs will not be subject to the PTI Drug-Free and Alcohol-Free Campus and Workplace Policy for that consumption.


Perry Technical Institute has a legal obligation to investigate complaints and to take reasonable steps to prevent ongoing harassment, discrimination, sexual misconduct, and related retaliation. While we cannot guarantee complete confidentiality, all aspects of the complaint-handling procedure will be dealt with discreetly. However, it may be necessary to include others on a strict need-to-know basis. Students who wish to maintain confidentiality are encouraged to access support through the resources below:

PTI prohibits retaliation against any student who complains of sexual harassment or who participates in an investigation. All aspects of the complaint-handling procedure will be dealt with discreetly. However, it may be necessary to include others on a need-to-know basis. All incidents of prohibited harassment that are reported will be investigated. The Title IX Coordinator will immediately undertake or direct an effective, thorough, and objective investigation of the harassment allegations. The investigation will be completed as soon as practical and a determination regarding the reported harassment will be made and communicated to the student who complained and to the accused harasser. If a complaint of prohibited harassment is substantiated, appropriate corrective action, up to and including dismissal, will be taken. Appropriate action will also be taken to correct the effects of the harassment and to deter any future harassment.

Smoking/Tobacco Products

Due to the acknowledged hazards from exposure to environmental tobacco smoke, it is the policy of Perry Technical Institute to provide a tobacco-free environment for all students, employees, and visitors. Smoking and other forms of tobacco use are permitted in designated areas only. The designated area is located at the northwest end on the main campus. This policy covers the smoking of any tobacco product, electronic cigarettes, and the use of smokeless or “spit” tobacco. Smoking areas are subject to change at any time. 

Student Complaint/Grievance Procedure

Perry Technical Institute utilizes policies and procedures for handling student complaints and informs the students in writing of them. When a student has a complaint, he/she is encouraged to follow the chain of command and communicate informally first with the instructor, then the department head, and then the dean/associate dean of education. If the student is still unsatisfied, he/she is asked to file a PTI complaint form at the President’s Office, and then encouraged to make an appointment with the president for further discussion and action.
