Within 10 days after receipt of notification from the KPR board, the secretary of labor shall request a presiding officer.

Within 30 days after close of the hearing, the presiding officer shall render a written opinion setting forth the presiding officer's findings of fact and recommendation as to the determination of the matter. The opinion shall be submitted to the KPR board and to the postsecondary institution. If, after receipt of the presiding officer's opinion, the KPR board concludes that the board's determination that the institution should not be eligible for participation in federal student aid programs was warranted, the board shall notify the institution and the secretary of education of the determination and the reasons therefor.
