PREPROPOSAL STATEMENT OF INQUIRY
[Filed March 20, 2020, 1:12 p.m.]
Subject of Possible Rule Making: Chapter 181-77, 181-79A, and 181-85 WAC, certificate renewal during closures of schools, and when limited number of clock hour providers are offering professional learning.
Statutes Authorizing the Agency to Adopt Rules on this Subject: Chapter 28A.410
Reasons Why Rules on this Subject may be Needed and What They Might Accomplish: Schools are closed and limited numbers of clock hour providers are offering professional learning. This makes it very challenging for educators to accrue the required continuing education to renew their certificates. This WAC amendment would consider a one-time extension of certificate expiration dates.
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.
Interested parties can participate in the decision to adopt the new rule and formulation of the proposed rule before publication by contacting Maren Johnson, 600 Washington Street S.E., Olympia, WA 98504, phone 360-725-6264, email email@example.com, website www.pesb.wa.gov.
