Subject of Possible Rule Making: WAC 392-137-230 Length of acceptance.
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: WAC 392-137-230 requires updating to clarify school district responsibilities for nonresident students.
The 2013 legislature, in ESSB 5946, directed office of superintendent of public instruction (OSPI) to create a standard form for school districts to use when releasing a student from their resident district to a nonresident district for the purpose of enrolling in an online school program. With the implementation of this new standardized transfer system, OSPI updated the expectations for districts around the responsibility for nonresident students who leave the nonresident district prior to the expiration of the transfer. The proposed rule change aligns with the choice transfer rules with the updated policy as outline[d] in OSPI Bulletin B008-14.
Process for Developing New Rule: Early solicitation of public comments and recommendations respecting new, amended, or repealed rules, and consideration of the comments and recommendations in the course of drafting rules.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.
