[Filed July 20, 2016, 10:54 a.m.]
Subject of Possible Rule Making: WAC 392-169-020 Eligible studentDefinition.
Statutes Authorizing the Agency to Adopt Rules on this Subject: RCW 28A.600.390.
Reasons Why Rules on this Subject may be Needed and What They Might Accomplish: WAC 392-169-020 requires updating to align the definition of an eligible running start student with WAC 392-172A-02000 that addresses a student's right to a free appropriate public education. This change will address the age discrepancy for students whose birthday is September 1.
Other Federal and State Agencies that Regulate this Subject and the Process Coordinating the Rule with These Agencies: WAC 392-169-005 requires joint agreement with office of superintendent of public instruction (OSPI), state board of community and technical colleges, and Washington student achievement council. Both agencies have agreed on the proposed change.
Process for Developing New Rule: Early solicitation of public comments and recommendations respecting new, amended, or repealed rules, and consideration of the comments and recommendations in the course of drafting rules.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, (360) 725-6306, Old Capitol Building, P.O. Box 47200, Olympia, WA.
