Title of Rule and Other Identifying Information: Repealing chapter 392-200 WAC, School personnel -- Employment
discrimination. The substantive portions of chapter 392-200 WAC, School personnel -- Employment discrimination, have been
incorporated into chapter 392-190 WAC without material change.
This rule making would repeal chapter 392-190 WAC to eliminate
THIS RULE IS BEING PROPOSED UNDER AN EXPEDITED RULE-MAKING PROCESS THAT WILL ELIMINATE THE NEED FOR THE AGENCY TO HOLD PUBLIC HEARINGS, PREPARE A SMALL BUSINESS ECONOMIC IMPACT STATEMENT, OR PROVIDE RESPONSES TO THE CRITERIA FOR A SIGNIFICANT LEGISLATIVE RULE. IF YOU OBJECT TO THIS USE OF THE EXPEDITED RULE-MAKING PROCESS, YOU MUST EXPRESS YOUR OBJECTIONS IN WRITING AND THEY MUST BE SENT TO Yvonne Ryans, Office of Superintendent of Public Instruction (OSPI), P.O. Box 47200, Olympia, WA 98504-7200 , AND RECEIVED BY June 6, 2011.
Purpose of the Proposal and Its Anticipated Effects, Including Any Changes in Existing Rules: In developing rules to implement chapter 28A.642 RCW, OSPI has incorporated the substantive portions of chapter 392-200 WAC regarding employment discrimination and affirmative action into chapter 392-190 WAC. The inclusion of employment discrimination and affirmative action provisions into chapter 392-190 WAC has been vetted through the public hearing and public input process. Because these provisions are now located in chapter 392-190 WAC, OSPI is repealing chapter 392-200 WAC to eliminate the duplication of these rules. Repealing these rules does not materially change the responsibilities of OSPI or school districts.
Reasons Supporting Proposal:
• To include all rules implementing chapters 28A.640 and 28A.642 RCW regarding discrimination in public schools in one chapter of the WAC.
• Because the adoption of substantively identical
amendments in chapter 392-190 WAC governs the same
activity as WAC 392-200-003 through 392-200-020,
those rules are no longer necessary and have been
made redundant. They therefore meet the criteria
for repeal set forth in RCW 34.05.353(2).
Statutory Authority for Adoption: RCW 28A.640.020 and 28A.642.020.
Statute Being Implemented: Chapters 28A.640 and 28A.642 RCW.
Rule is not necessitated by federal law, federal or state court decision.
Name of Proponent: Office of superintendent of public instruction, governmental.
Name of Agency Personnel Responsible for Drafting, Implementation and Enforcement: Yvonne Ryans, OSPI, P.O. Box 47200, Olympia, WA 98504-7200, (360) 725-6162.
