Subject of Possible Rule Making: WAC 392-140-915 Process and definition of K-3 high poverty eligibility.
Statutes Authorizing the Agency to Adopt Rules on this Subject: RCW 28A.150.290.
Reasons Why Rules on this Subject may be Needed and What They Might Accomplish: The 2013-15 Biennial Appropriations Act makes receipt of K-1 high poverty funding contingent on districts demonstrating hiring to meet the funded class size. Current rule does not inform districts as to if their schools are eligible for K-3 high poverty funding until October, after the school year starts. The intent of this CR-101 is to inform interested parties of changes in that timeline which will allow schools to be notified which schools are eligible to receive K-3 high poverty funds in the spring prior to the school year starting.
Process for Developing New Rule: Early solicitation of public comments and recommendations respecting new, amended, or repealed rules, and consideration of the comments and recommendations in the course of drafting rules.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 T. J. Kelly, (360) 725-6301,, P.O. Box 47200, Olympia, WA 98504.
