Statutes Authorizing the Agency to Adopt Rules on this Subject: RCW 28A.657.030.
Reasons Why Rules on this Subject may be Needed and What They Might Accomplish: The reason is to adjust the time for the designation of RADs. WAC 180-17-010 provides that RADs be designated by January of each year. The data upon which the recommendation and designation of RADs are based, however, may not be available until February of each year.
Other Federal and State Agencies that Regulate this Subject and the Process Coordinating the Rule with These Agencies: Office of superintendent of public instruction (OSPI). Board staff meet regularly with OSPI to discuss matters relating to implementation of RCW 28A.657.030.
Process for Developing New Rule: The state board of education (SBE) will solicit comment on the content of the rules from the private school advisory committee, education organizations, OSPI, private schools, parents, teachers, district boards of directors, and other interested parties.
Interested parties can participate in the decision to adopt the new rule and formulation of the proposed rule before publication by contacting Jack Archer, Rules Coordinator, SBE, Old Capitol Building, P.O. Box 47206, 600 Washington Street S.E., Olympia, WA 98504, (360) 725-6035,
