Subject of Possible Rule Making: WAC 392-800-825 ApplicationApproval processTimeline.
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: Amended rule provides clarification to state-tribal education compact submission deadlines.
Other Federal and State Agencies that Regulate this Subject and the Process Coordinating the Rule with These Agencies: WAC 392-800-825 requires federally recognized tribes or Bureau of Indian Education schools seeking approval of a state-tribal education compact to submit an application to the office of superintendent of public instruction (OSPI) by February 1. These proposed changes to WAC 392-800-825 will keep the tribal compact application deadline at February 1, but institute a deadline of June 30 by which point the tribal compact agreement must be agreed to and signed off on by both parties. If an agreement is not executed by June 30, then the tribal school would have to re-apply by February 1 of the following year.
Process for Developing New Rule: Consideration of public comments and recommendations in the course of amending rules.
Interested parties can participate in the decision to adopt the new rule and formulation of the proposed rule before publication by contacting Michael J. (Mike) Dooley, OSPI School District and ESD Budgeting Supervisor, Old Capitol Building, P.O. Box 47200, Olympia, WA, (360) 725-6305.
