(1) For cooperative work based learning experience, in accordance with WAC ((180-50-315)) 392-410-315 (1)(g), divide the student's hours of work experience for the month by two hundred; for example: Forty hours of cooperative work experience equals two tenths of a full-time equivalent (40 200 = 0.20). For instructional work based learning experience, in accordance with WAC ((180-50-315)) 392-410-315 (1)(f) and WAC 296-125-043(4), divide the student's enrolled hours of work experience for the month by one hundred; for example: Twenty hours of instructional work experience equals two tenths of a full-time equivalent (20 100 = 0.20). Enrollment exclusions in WAC 392-121-108 apply to instructional work based learning enrolled hours.

(2) Estimated or scheduled hours of cooperative work based learning 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 cooperative work based learning experience documented on the student's work records and maintained by the school district for audit purposes. Instructional and cooperative work based learning 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.
