Subject of Possible Rule Making: Chapter 392-144 WAC, School bus driver qualifications.
Statutes Authorizing the Agency to Adopt Rules on this Subject: RCW 28A.160.210.
Reasons Why Rules on this Subject may be Needed and What They Might Accomplish: The office of superintendent of public instruction is considering revising chapter 392-144 WAC to more clearly define the hearing process for a school bus driver, update the disqualifying requirements for school bus drivers, and establish minimum requirements for non-CDL-authorized school bus drivers. In addition, revisions may be made to ensure all requirements in this chapter are up-to-date with federal and state regulations.
Process for Developing New Rule: Early solicitation of public comments and recommendations regarding new or amended 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 Glenn Gorton, Director, Student Transportation, P.O. Box 47200, Olympia, WA 98504-7200, (360) 725-6121, or email
