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: WAC 392-502-030 sets 2017 performance standards for online course providers and online school programs. The office of superintendent of public instruction (OSPI) is in the process of reviewing these performance standards, as well [as] establishing the collection methods for this data. Based on this review and Every Student Succeeds Act implementation, OSPI may extend these performance expectations and update them accordingly.
Process for Developing New Rule: Early solicitation of public comments and recommendations respecting new, amended, or repealed rules, and consideration of the comments and recommendations in the course of drafting rules.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 Rhett Nelson, Online Learning Program Manager, Alternative Learning Department, OSPI, P.O.
