Subject of Possible Rule Making: Initiative 1240 passed in November 2012 authorized charter schools to open and operate as public schools in the state of Washington beginning in the 2014-15 school year.

Reasons Why Rules on this Subject may be Needed and What They Might Accomplish: Without these rule changes current law as described in WAC will not meet the intent of the initiative.
Other Federal and State Agencies that Regulate this Subject and the Process Coordinating the Rule with These Agencies: None.
Process for Developing New Rule: Negotiated rule making.
Interested parties can participate in the decision to adopt the new rule and formulation of the proposed rule before publication by contacting T. J. Kelly, phone (360) 725-6301, fax (360) 664-3683,
