[ Filed July 23, 2008, 11:37 a.m. ]

Subject of Possible Rule Making: Enrollment exclusions for state institutional education students and the counting priority of these students, WAC 392-122-221.

Statutes Authorizing the Agency to Adopt Rules on this Subject: RCW 28A.150.290(1).

Reasons Why Rules on this Subject may be Needed and What They Might Accomplish: WAC 392-122-221 defines the enrollment exclusions for an institution student. The intent of this WAC change is to clearly identify the priority of counting a student who is in the institution on the institution count date as well as in their regular school district on the school district's count date.

Process for Developing New Rule: Early solicitation of public comments and recommendations respecting new, amended, or repealed rules, and consideration of the comments and recommendations in the course of drafting rules.

Interested parties can participate in the decision to adopt the new rule and formulation of the proposed rule before publication by contacting Mitch Thompson, OSPI Enrollment Supervisor, Old Capitol Building, P.O. Box 47200, Olympia, WA, (360) 725-6306.
