[Filed August 23, 2017, 10:13 a.m.]
Subject of Possible Rule Making: Chapter 392-162 WAC, Learning assistance program and WAC 392-122-605 Apportionment of state moneys for the state learning assistance program.
Statutes Authorizing the Agency to Adopt Rules on this Subject: RCW 28A.165.075.
Reasons Why Rules on this Subject may be Needed and What They Might Accomplish: EHB 2242 (2017) amended chapter 28A.165 RCW, Learning assistance program and RCW 28A.150.260, the prototypical funding formula statute that among other things, created a new learning assistance program (LAP) allocation for high poverty-based schools. The office of superintendent of public instruction is considering amending LAP rules to align them with the statutory changes.
Process for Developing New Rule: Early solicitation of public comments and recommendations respecting new, amended, or repealed rules, and consideration of the comments and recommendations in the course of drafting rules.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 Estela Garcia, P.O.
