Effective Date of Rule: Thirty-one days after filing.
Purpose: The state board of education repealed WAC 180-16-215 due to recent legislation. The current version of WAC 180-16-215 is consistent with existing state statutory requirements. However, [this] is not the case as of September 1, 2011, when the definition of "school day" is changed due to legislation adopted in 2009. The basic education program requirements are set forth in statute. Therefore, it is unnecessary for the board to adopt a rule setting forth these requirements. Deletion of this rule in its entirety ensures that the rules don't conflict with state law and avoids the need to continue amending the rule to conform to subsequent changes to statutory law. The basic education program requirements will continue to be implemented as provided in WAC 180-16-215.
