(a) Each community college district shall establish written procedures by which students may challenge any alleged violation of the provisions of this subchapter. Districts shall investigate and attempt to resolve any such challenges and complaints in a timely manner. Procedures may be consolidated with existing student grievance procedures by action of the governing board. Records of all such complaints shall be retained for at least three years after the complaint has been resolved or longer if necessary to meet other requirements and shall be subject to review by the Chancellor as part of the statewide evaluation required under section 55511.

(b) When a challenge contains an allegation that a community college district has violated the provisions of section 55522(c), the district shall, upon completion of the challenge procedure established pursuant to this section, advise the student that he or she may file a formal complaint of unlawful discrimination pursuant to subchapter 5 (commencing with section 59300) of chapter 10. Completion of the challenge procedure shall be deemed to be an effort at informal resolution of the complaint under section 59327.
