Subject of Possible Rule Making: WAC 392-140-950 through 392-140-967, Finance -- Special allocations -- Learning improvement days.

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: This amendment reduces the number of state-funded learning improvement days from one to zero for the 2010-11 school year, pursuant to section 503(7) of the 2010-11 State Operating Supplemental Appropriations Act, ESSB 6444.
