[Filed June 21, 2022, 3:56 p.m.]
Subject of Possible Rule Making: Add new sections to chapter 392-122 WAC to describe the compliance rules and calculations concerning provisions in SSHB 1664 (2022) and the 2022 supplemental budget (ESSB 5693).
Statutes Authorizing the Agency to Adopt Rules on this Subject: RCW 28A.150.260.
Reasons Why Rules on this Subject may be Needed and What They Might Accomplish: The 2022 supplemental budget (ESSB 5693) implements SSHB 1664 which provides increased funding allocations for physical, social, and emotional support staff through the prototypical school funding model beginning with the 2022-23 school year. Maximum allocations to local education agencies are subject to compliance rules as drafted by the office of superintendent of public instruction (OSPI). These changes are required to ensure that local education agencies receive an allocation for basic education that is in alignment with the state budget. Without these rules, local education agencies could receive state basic education allocations in excess of what the RCW and state budget language allows.
Process for Developing New Rule: Early solicitation of feedback and recommendations concerning new or amended rules, and consideration of comments and recommendations in the course of drafting rule language.
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, OSPI, P.O. Box 47200, Olympia, WA 98504, phone 360-725-6301, TTY 360-664-3631, email, website
