PREPROPOSAL STATEMENT OF INQUIRY
Subject of Possible Rule Making: State institutional education program -- Eligible programs.
Statutes Authorizing the Agency to Adopt Rules on this Subject: RCW 28A.150.290.
Reasons Why Rules on this Subject may be Needed and What They Might Accomplish: The change is to allow the opportunity for institutional funding monies to be paid to a school district where the services for the staffed residential rehabilitation home residents occurs in a school operated facility rather than at the rehabilitation home.
Process for Developing New Rule: Students in a staffed residential home were being educated at the local school district due to lack of a facility. The district needs the option to serve them in a school operated facility, rather than in the rehabilitation home as directed by the WAC previously.
Interested parties can participate in the decision to adopt the new rule and formulation of the proposed rule before publication by sending written comments to Mitch Thompson, Enrollment Supervisor, Office of Superintendent of Public Instruction, P.O. Box 47200, Olympia, WA 98504-720 [98504-7200], fax (360) 664-3683. For telephone assistance contact Mitch Thompson, (360) 725-6306.
