Purpose: The intention has always been to keep the work based learning rules consistent across all K-12 education, regardless of whether the work based learning takes place in a high school or an institution. Therefore, the institution education WAC 392-122-212 needs to reflect changes made to basic education work based learning rules. The change is to refer to the basic education work based learning WAC in the institution WAC.
