Subject of Possible Rule Making: Running Start program, chapter 392-169 WAC.

Statutes Authorizing the Agency to Adopt Rules on this Subject: RCW 28A.150.290(1).

Reasons Why Rules on this Subject may be Needed and What They Might Accomplish: RCW 28A.600.300 was revised to include public tribal college and Evergreen State College as institutions of higher education that may offer Running Start. Chapter 392-169 WAC which governs Running Start institutions of higher education should be updated to reflect this change.

Process for Developing New Rule: Early solicitation of public comments and recommendations respecting new, amended, or repealed rules, and consideration of the comments and recommendations in the course of drafting rules.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 contacting Becky McLean, OSPI Enrollment Supervisor, Old Capitol Building, P.O. Box 47200, Olympia, WA, (360) 725-6306.
