[Filed March 31, 2015, 12:18 p.m.]
Subject of Possible Rule Making: WAC 392-502-030 Approval assurances, criteria, and performance targets.
Statutes Authorizing the Agency to Adopt Rules on this Subject: RCW 28A.150.290 and 28A.250.020.
Reasons Why Rules on this Subject may be Needed and What They Might Accomplish: The office of superintendent of public instruction (OSPI) is proposing changes to WAC 392-502-030 to adjust the effective date of the online provider performance targets that rely on the percentage of students meeting standard on the state assessment. The 2015 administration of the smarter balanced assessments will provide a new baseline score. OSPI will adjust the performance targets based on the 2015 results prior to September 1, 2016.
Process for Developing New Rule: Early solicitation of public comments and recommendations respecting amended 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 Karl Nelson, OSPI, 4507 University Way N.E., Suite 204, Seattle, WA 98105,
