PREPROPOSAL STATEMENT OF INQUIRY
[Filed August 24, 2022, 9:05 a.m.]
Subject of Possible Rule Making: For Title 392 WAC, adding a new chapter or sections concerning education of youth in institutional education facilities and post-resident youth.
Statutes Authorizing the Agency to Adopt Rules on this Subject: RCW 28A.190.100
Reasons Why Rules on this Subject may be Needed and What They Might Accomplish: The office of superintendent of public instruction (OSPI) is considering rule making based on HB [E2SHB] 1295 (2021) which directs OSPI to establish requirements concerning education and supports for youth in or recently exiting the juvenile justice system. Academic progress toward grade-level progression and high school graduation are particularly critical for students within the juvenile justice system, including those entering, transitioning between facilities, and post-resident youth, in making life-changing transformations for the future.
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 Emmelia Wargacki, OSPI, P.O.
