Subject of Possible Rule Making: WAC 392-122-160 State special education program—Reporting.
Statutes Authorizing the Agency to Adopt Rules on this Subject: RCW 28A.150.290.
Reasons Why Rules on this Subject may be Needed and What They Might Accomplish: WAC 392-122-160 requires updating to change the age reporting requirement for special education students. Starting in the 2013–14 school year, the student's age will be determined by the student's birthday. Two-year-old special education students that turn three during the school year will be reported in the age 3–5 category.
Process for Developing New Rule: Early solicitation of public comments and recommendations respecting new, amended, or repealed rules, and consideration of the comments and recommendations in the course of drafting rules.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.
