Effective Date of Rule: Thirty-one days after filing.
Purpose: The low-income choice program is not related to the provisions for school choice under the Elementary and Secondary Education Act (no child left behind).
There is no reference to the low-income choice program in the Revised Code of Washington (RCW). Previous reference to the program was contained within the state operating budget.
The low-income choice transportation program was not utilized for several years prior to the 2009 legislative session. In the 2009-11 operating budget, all reference to the program was removed. This CR-103 removes the sections of WAC 392-141-205, 392-141-210, 392-141-215, 392-141-220, 392-141-225, and 392-141-230 that refer to the distribution of funding for this program.
