WSR 17-19-105
[Filed September 19, 2017, 1:42 p.m.]
Subject of Possible Rule Making: To align WAC language governing vocational education minimum expenditures with the changes made in the 2017-19 appropriations act.
Statutes Authorizing the Agency to Adopt Rules on this Subject: RCW 42.56.070, 42.56.120.
Reasons Why Rules on this Subject may be Needed and What They Might Accomplish: The office of superintendent of public instruction is considering revising agency rules limiting indirect cost charges to school district state-funded vocational-secondary programs required under the Biennial Operating Appropriations Act. Rules on this subject are necessary to reduce the vocational program indirect rate to five percent, ensure that no district has minimum expenditures greater than its total program allocation, and ensure that districts and vocational education programs have access [to] the correct proportionate share of their allocations as directed in the appropriations act.
Process for Developing New Rule: Early solicitation of public comments and recommendations respecting new, amended, or repealed rules, and consideration of the comments and recommendations in the course of drafting rules.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, P.O. Box 47200, Olympia, WA 98504, phone 360-725-6301, fax 360-664-3683, TTY 306-664-3631, email, web site
