Subject of Possible Rule Making: Chapter 392-725 WAC, College in the high school programs.
Statutes Authorizing the Agency to Adopt Rules on this Subject: RCW 28A.600.290.
Reasons Why Rules on this Subject may be Needed and What They Might Accomplish: Chapter 392-725 WAC requires updating to address what would occur if a college in the high school program is unable to provide evidence of meeting the required college in the high school standards after the annual review committee has deemed that the previously submitted evidence was unsatisfactory and after the program has been given six months to provide satisfactory evidence.
Additionally, other changes may be made after the college in the high school workgroup convenes.
Other Federal and State Agencies that Regulate this Subject and the Process Coordinating the Rule with These Agencies: WAC 392-725-005 requires that changes to chapter 392-725 WAC be done by joint agreement with the office of superintendent of public instruction (OSPI), state board of [for] community and technical colleges, the Washington student achievement council, and an organization representing the interest of the public baccalaureate institutions. The College of Presidents will be the organization that will represent the public baccalaureate institutions. OSPI will convene a college in the high school workgroup with representation from all these agencies, as well as a representative from the Association of Washington School Principals to work on the revisions needed for chapter 392-725 WAC.
Process for Developing New Rule: Early solicitation of public comments and recommendations respecting new, amended, or repealed rules, and consideration of the comments and recommendations in the course of drafting rules.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 Kim Reykdal, OSPI, Dual Credit and College Readiness Math, (360) 725-6168, Old Capitol Building, P.O. Box 47200, Olympia, WA 98504-7200.
