Purpose of the Proposal and Its Anticipated Effects, Including Any Changes in Existing Rules: We are repealing WAC 392-410-117 Temporary exemption from credit requirements, as the Washington state board of education has redefined a high school credit not to include the one hundred fifty hours of instruction (performance or successful completion based on written district policy).
Since the Washington state board of education has changed the rule, the exemption allowed in WAC 392-410-117 is no longer needed.
Reasons Supporting Proposal: This WAC is no longer needed since the adoption of a change to the definition of a high school credit by the Washington state board of education.
Statutory Authority for Adoption: RCW 28A.655.180.
Rule is not necessitated by federal law, federal or state court decision.
Name of Proponent: OSPI, governmental.
