Subject of Possible Rule Making: Elective high school credit for work experience. Chapter 392-410 WAC, Courses of study and equivalencies; and chapter 392-121 WAC, FinanceGeneral apportionment.
Statutes Authorizing the Agency to Adopt Rules on this Subject: RCW 28A.230.100.
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 concerning elective high school credit for work experience. The rules may clarify implementation requirements for schools and ensure students have access to elective credit. The proposed rule making does not seek to impact or modify laws or rules related to employing youth.
Other Federal and State Agencies that Regulate this Subject and the Process Coordinating the Rule with These Agencies: The Washington state department of labor and industries (L&I) provides regulatory guidance related to youth employment. OSPI will consult with L&I throughout the rules process to support consistent communication and guidance related to youth employment related policies.
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.
