Subject of Possible Rule Making: Chapter 392-169 WAC, Special service programs—Running start program.
Statutes Authorizing the Agency to Adopt Rules on this Subject: RCW 28A.150.290(1).
Reasons Why Rules on this Subject may be Needed and What They Might Accomplish: The majority of chapter 392-169 WAC was written in 1990-91 and has not been revisited since. The inquires [inquiries] that the office of superintendent of public instruction (OSPI), state board of community and technical colleges, and Washington student achievement council receive asking for interpretation of the current rules, finds that the current WAC language is increasingly inadequate to respond to the broad issues such as eligibility and funding. A stakeholder workgroup will work to update this chapter.
Other Federal and State Agencies that Regulate this Subject and the Process Coordinating the Rule with These Agencies: WAC 392-169-005 requires joint agreement with OSPI, state board of community and technical colleges, and Washington student achievement council. Both agencies will be instrumental in developing and reviewing the proposed changes.
Process for Developing New Rule: Early solicitation of public comments and recommendations respecting new, amended, or repealed rules, and consideration of the comments and recommendations in the course of drafting rules.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 Becky McLean, OSPI Enrollment Supervisor, Old Capitol Building, P.O. Box 47200, Olympia, WA, (360) 725-6306.
