PUBLIC INSTRUCTION

[ Filed April 5, 2012, 9:43 a.m. , effective May 6, 2012 ]


Effective Date of Rule: Thirty-one days after filing.

Purpose: This amended rule provides relief to districts, in consideration of public comments and recommendations.

A public hearing on this rule was initially held November 22, 2011. Testimony from the public hearing overwhelmingly recommended that the WAC language be more generalized, and supported this final revision.

A second public hearing on this rule was held March 27, 2012. The rationale behind replacing the phrase "ending net cash and investments, revenues and expenditures" with the more generalized word "amounts" is that the proposed language allows districts to reconcile in a more appropriate way and makes sure that there is agreement between the county treasurers' records and the school districts' records.

Citation of Existing Rules Affected by this Order: Amending WAC 392-123-132.

Statutory Authority for Adoption: RCW 28A.150.290(2).
