Subject of Possible Rule Making: WAC 392-140-600 through 392-140-685, school district eligibility for state special education safety net funding.
Statutes Authorizing the Agency to Adopt Rules on this Subject: RCW 28A.155.090.
Reasons Why Rules on this Subject may be Needed and What They Might Accomplish: The provisions of WAC 392-140-600 through 392-140-685 apply to the determination of safety net awards of state special education funds and Individuals with Disabilities Education Act federal funds awarded to local education agencies located in Washington state. The office of superintendent of public instruction (OSPI) is considering amending these rules to align the rules' definition of average per pupil expenditure with the Every Student Succeeds Act of 2016, 20 USC § 7801. OSPI is further considering making housekeeping changes to the rules for the purpose of providing greater clarity.
Process for Developing New Rule: Early solicitation of public comments and recommendations pertaining to new, amended, or repealed rules and consideration of the comments and recommendations in the course of drafting rules.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.
