WAC 392-121-124 Full-time equivalent enrollment for work based learning. For work based learning provided pursuant to WAC 180-50-315, a student's full-time equivalent shall be determined as follows:
(1) Divide the student's hours of work experience for the month by two hundred twenty-five; for example: Forty-five hours of work experience equals two tenths of a full-time equivalent (45 ÷ 225 = 0.20).
(2) Estimated or scheduled hours of work experience may be used in determining a student's full-time equivalent on an enrollment count date: Provided, That the combined monthly hours reported for the school year shall not exceed the student's actual hours of work experience documented on the student's work records and maintained by the school district for audit purposes. Work experience during June of the regular school year shall be included in the May enrollment count.
(3) Work based learning provided as part of a state-approved vocational education program qualifies for enhanced vocational funding and may be included in determining a student's vocational full-time equivalent enrollment.
