Subject of Possible Rule Making: To implement provisions of SHB 2824 (chapter 177, Laws of 2018) and to make changes to rule as needed, the state board of education is amending WAC 180-16-195, 180-16-225, chapters 180-18 and 180-90 WAC.
Statutes Authorizing the Agency to Adopt Rules on this Subject: RCW 28A.305.130. The authority for amendment of WAC 180-16-195 is RCW 28A.150.250. The authority for amendment of WAC 180-16-225 is RCW 28A.150.220, 28.305.130 [28A.305.130], and 28A.305.140. The authority for amendment of chapter 180-18 WAC is RCW 28A.305.140. The authority for amendment of chapter 180-90 WAC is RCW 28A.195.040.
Reasons Why Rules on this Subject may be Needed and What They Might Accomplish: SHB 2824 (chapter 177, Laws of 2018) exchanges specific powers, duties, and functions among the superintendent of public instruction and the state board of education, thus requiring rule making to implement the statutory change of roles. In particular, the exchange of roles in the private school approval process and in the one hundred eighty day waiver application process and the change of duty in basic education compliance require rule making to implement SHB 2824 (chapter 177, Laws of 2018).
Other Federal and State Agencies that Regulate this Subject and the Process Coordinating the Rule with These Agencies: Office of superintendent of public instruction. State board of education staff will regularly engage the office of superintendent of public instruction staff regarding these rule changes in a series of meetings and by email.
