Subject of Possible Rule Making: Chapter 392-300 WAC.
Statutes Authorizing the Agency to Adopt Rules on this Subject: RCW 28A.400.305.
Reasons Why Rules on this Subject may be Needed and What They Might Accomplish: SSB 5605 (2017) amended sections of RCW 28A.400.303, 28A.400.305, 28A.410.010 and added a new section to chapter 28A.400 RCW. Among other things, these amendments authorize school districts to request fingerprint criminal background checks on school volunteers and address the fees OSPI charges for administering the background checks and other applicable fees for obtaining the fingerprints. OSPI is considering amending chapter 392-300 WAC to align OSPI's background check rules with SSB 5605 and make further technical and substantive 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Process for Developing New Rule: Early solicitation of public comments and recommendations respecting new, amended or repealed rules and consideration of the comments and recommendations in the course of drafting rules.
