[Filed August 26, 2016, 11:37 a.m.]
Subject of Possible Rule Making: Removal of the language in WAC 392-121-571 and 392-121-578 that restricts the amount of funds that career and technical education (CTE) programs can carry over to the ensuing school year to the amount of the CTE enhancement. The current rule, combined with the current enhancement level, does not allow school district[s] to access a carryover of ten percent.
Statutes Authorizing the Agency to Adopt Rules on this Subject: RCW 28A.150.290 and 84.52.0531.
Reasons Why Rules on this Subject may be Needed and What They Might Accomplish: Without these rules, CTE programs will not be able to carry over amounts that were budgeted from the beginning of the school year. This negatively impacts CTE programs, and limits their ability to plan for future expenses.
Other Federal and State Agencies that Regulate this Subject and the Process Coordinating the Rule with These Agencies: None.
Process for Developing New Rule: Early solicitation of public comments and recommendations respecting new, amended, or repealed rules, and consideration of the comments and recommendations in the course of drafting rules.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 T. J. Kelly, phone (360) 725-6301, fax (360) 664-3683,
