STUDENT ACHIEVEMENT COUNCIL
[Filed November 18, 2020, 8:47 a.m.]
Subject of Possible Rule Making: The agency is planning to take the following action:
1. Repeal existing chapter 250-83 WAC, Passport to college promise program.
2. Adopt rules governing the passport to careers program as chapter 250-100 WAC to implement SB 6274 (chapter 232, Laws of 2018) creating the passport to careers program, chapter 28B.117
3. Comprehensive technical and administrative changes and corrections to align the WAC with RCW and other recent legislative direction, as well as codifying current practice in various operational areas.
Reasons Why Rules on this Subject may be Needed and What They Might Accomplish: 1. Program rules need to be updated to align with legislative changes and codify practices in areas where the existing rules are no longer accurate, or are silent or incomplete.
2. Program expansion to include apprenticeships, unaccompanied homeless youth, tribal foster youth, unaccompanied refugee minors, and foster youth impacted by the interstate compact for the placement of children requires additional updates.
Other Federal and State Agencies that Regulate this Subject and the Process Coordinating the Rule with These Agencies: Not applicable.
Process for Developing New Rule: Agency study; and technical corrections and additions to align program operations with legislative direction and current practice. Both in collaboration with affected partners.
Interested parties can participate in the decision to adopt the new rule and formulation of the proposed rule before publication by contacting Carla Idohl-Corwin, Student Achievement Council, 917 Lakeridge Way, P.O.
