PREPROPOSAL STATEMENT OF INQUIRY
Subject of Possible Rule Making: General provisions for chapter 392-121 WAC to address whether the serving or the resident district is responsible for reporting student enrollment when the serving and resident districts are not the same, WAC 392-121-011.
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: Office of the superintendent of public instruction (OSPI) has historically instructed districts who are serving nonresident students pursuant to an interdistrict agreement, that is the serving district's responsibility to report student enrollment. Previously this had not been in any WAC.
This is supported in statute RCW 28A.225.240.
Process for Developing New Rule: Early solicitation of public comments and recommendations respecting new, amended, or repealed rules, and consideration of the comments and recommendations in the course of drafting rules.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.
