[Filed May 2, 2018, 8:59 a.m.]
Subject of Possible Rule Making: To add a new section to chapter 392-140 WAC concerning the conditional loan program related to salary bonus for teachers and other certificated instructional staff who hold current certification by the National Board for Professional Teaching Standards (NBPTS).
Statutes Authorizing the Agency to Adopt Rules on this Subject: Section 513 (4)(d) of ESSB 6032 (2018).
Reasons Why Rules on this Subject may be Needed and What They Might Accomplish: Section 513 (4)(d) of ESSB 6032 (2018) authorizes the office of superintendent of public instruction (OSPI) to adopt rules to outline and define the terms for initial grant of the conditional loan for the NBPTS process for candidates. OSPI is considering rules that would align the terms of the conditional loan with the length of candidacy as defined by NBPTS.
Process for Developing New Rule: Early solicitation of public comments and recommendations respecting new, amended, or repealed rules, and consideration of the comments and recommendations in the course of drafting rules.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 Carrie Dubuque, OSPI, P.O. Box 47200, Olympia, WA 98504-7200, phone 360-725-6119, TTY 360-664-3631, email, web site
