3.9 Domesticated Animals on Campus Recommendation
To implement a formal administrative regulation that addresses instances where animals are permitted on campus. This item would take the place of language titled “Pet Policy” that presently appears in student handbooks and instead be placed within the Instruction section of the administrative regulations. Responsibilities
Animals, including pets, are prohibited on campus with the exception of service animals as defined by the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA); service-animals-in-training that are part of a certified or accredited program that is recognized within the service animal industry to train animals in compliance with the Americans with Disabilities Act; animals for instructional purposes as approved by the appropriate district or college authority;andworkingdogsusedbyalawenforcementagencyforlawenforcementpurposes. Animals-in-training must be clearly identified (i.e., wearing a vest) and prior permission of the college’s administration shall be obtained in advance. During work and classroom hours, no more than one service-animal-in-training is permitted on site per employee or student.
The ADA defines service animals as those that are individually trained to provide assistance to any individual with a disability. If animals meet this definition, they are considered service animals under the ADA regardless of whether theyhavebeenlicensedorcertifiedbyastateorlocalgovernment. Thisdoesnotincludeanimalsforemotional support. Service animals and service-animals-in-training shall be leashed and remain under the owner’s or caretaker’s control at all times.

4.4 Technology Resource Standards
The Maricopa County Community College District (MCCCD) provides its students, employees, Governing Board members and the public with access to information resources and technologies. MCCCD recognizes that the free exchange of opinions and ideas is essential to academic freedom, and the advancement of educational, research, service, operational, and management purposes, is furthered by making these resources accessible.
Arizona constitutional and statutory mandates requires that MCCCD resources, including technology, be used only for the public’s business, and not for private purposes. Those mandates apply to all MCCCD public officials– employeesofeverykindandtheGoverningBoard. Theaimofthoselawsistosafeguardtheuseofresources, including technology resources, acquired and maintained with public funds. Compliance with other laws–both federal and state–also dictates the need for standards for the use of MCCCD technology resources. In some cases, the Governing Board policies emphasize the importance of compliance with the law such as the requirement to adhere to copyright laws. Governing Board policies also establish MCCCD’s own standards, such as the directive that all persons within the MCCCD community be treated in a manner that is humane, fair and dignified.

Theyshould be seen as supplementing, and not in lieu of, Governing Board policy, applicable law and other applicable administrative regulations such as Administrative Regulation 4.3 “Electronic Communications.”
