PUBLIC INSTRUCTION

[ Filed January 19, 2001, 9:02 a.m. ]

Subject of Possible Rule Making: WAC 392-122-900 Categorical apportionment -- General provision -- Carryover prohibited, 392-141-200 Transportation -- State allocation -- Recovery of transportation funds, and 392-122-322 Traffic safety education -- Recovery of moneys.

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: Rule changes are needed to implement state budget language permitting school districts to carry over up to 10% of state allocations and institutional education programs. Changes are further required in the methodology of calculating state recoveries due to accounting changes made for the 2000-01 school year. Program 94 has been eliminated from the accounting structure of school districts effective for the 2000-01 school year.

Process for Developing New Rule: Early solicitation of public comments and recommendations respecting new, amended or repealed rules, and consideration of the comments and recommendations in the course of drafting rules.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 sending written comments to Rules Coordinator, Legal Services, Office of Superintendent of Public Instruction, P.O. Box 47200, Olympia, WA 98504-7200, fax (360) 753-4201, TDD (360) 664-3631. For telephone assistance contact Calvin W. Brodie, (360) 664-2117.
