Current Rulemaking Activity

May 2, 2018: The State Board of Education submitted a CR-105 for expedited rule-making to implement provisions of House Bill 2824 (Chapter 177, Laws of 2018) that are effective 90 days after the end of the 2018 legislative session. The proposed rule-making results in repeal of WAC Chapter 180-22 to eliminate the Board’s role in establishing Educational Service District Boundaries and an amendment to WAC 180-18-100 that transfers the administration to the Office of Superintendent of Public Instruction of district waivers from the requirement for student access to Career and Technical Education course equivalencies.

November 21, 2017: The State Board of Education has proposed the following rule changes:

WAC 180-105-020 and 180-105-060: Performance Improvement Goals Rule Change
