PREPROPOSAL STATEMENT OF INQUIRY

SUPERINTENDENT OF

PUBLIC INSTRUCTION

[ Filed November 17, 2008, 11:44 a.m. ]

Subject of Possible Rule Making: WAC 392-410-117 Temporary exemption from course and credit requirements.

Statutes Authorizing the Agency to Adopt Rules on this Subject: RCW 28A.655.180(1).

Reasons Why Rules on this Subject may be Needed and What They Might Accomplish: WAC 392-410-117 was transferred from the state board of education in 2006; at that time no updates were made to change the reference from the state board of education to the office of superintendent of public instruction. At the present time we are proposing changes to the waiver process that will also necessitate updating the rule.

Process for Developing New Rule: Negotiated rule making; and agency study.

Interested parties can participate in the decision to adopt the new rule and formulation of the proposed rule before publication by contacting Jim Ridgeway, Director of Secondary Education -- for more information, Office of Superintendent of Public Instruction, P.O. Box 47200, Olympia, WA 98504-7200, (360) 725-0416, jim.ridgeway@k12.wa.us.
