PREPROPOSAL STATEMENT OF INQUIRY
STATE BOARD OF EDUCATION
[Filed September 18, 2018, 10:54 a.m.]
Subject of Possible Rule Making: Amendment or repeal of state board of education (SBE) rules in chapter 180-17 WAC pursuant to collaboration on required action districts between SBE and the office of superintendent of public instruction (OSPI).
Statutes Authorizing the Agency to Adopt Rules on this Subject: RCW 28A.657.120
Reasons Why Rules on this Subject may be Needed and What They Might Accomplish: SBE has determined that current rule in chapter 180-17 WAC prevents SBE and OSPI from making changes to improve the required action process. SBE and OSPI are engaged in a collaborative effort to improve the required action process and these rule changes will reflect the outcomes of that collaboration. The purposes are to repeal obsolete rules, amend or repeal rules inconsistent with board policy, update rules to be compatible with new circumstances and policy issues, and make necessary technical corrections.
Other Federal and State Agencies that Regulate this Subject and the Process Coordinating the Rule with These Agencies: OSPI.
Interested parties can participate in the decision to adopt the new rule and formulation of the proposed rule before publication by contacting Andrew Parr, 600 Washington Street S.E., Room 253, phone 360-725-6063, fax 360-586-2357, email Andrew.firstname.lastname@example.org, web site www.sbe.wa.gov; or Parker Teed, 600 Washington Street S.E., Room 253, phone 360-725-6047, fax 360-586-2357, email email@example.com, web site www.sbe.wa.gov.
