Subject of Possible Rule Making: WAC 392-343-035 Space allocations and 392-343-060 Determining the construction cost allocation.
Statutes Authorizing the Agency to Adopt Rules on this Subject: RCW 28A.525.020.
Reasons Why Rules on this Subject may be Needed and What They Might Accomplish: WAC 392-343-035; the space allocations are outdated and do not meet the space needs of local school districts for current educational programs offered to students. The proposed updated rule will phase in increases to the current space allocations to help meet the space needs of providing current educational opportunities to students.
WAC 392-343-060; the current process to determine the construction cost allocation has not permitted the superintendent to adjust the construction cost allocation to reflect actual market rate of construction and modernizing a school. The proposed update will allow the superintendent to set the construction cost allocation to reflect current market conditions.
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 Scott Black, Office of Superintendent of Public Instruction, P.O. Box 47200, Olympia, WA 98504, phone 360-742-4028, TTY 360-664-3631, email, website
