Rulemaking and Public Comment

Contact Information

Special Education


The Special Education Section posts notices of any rulemaking activities or public comment opportunities that are specific to state special education.

We invite and encourage participation in the rule making process either through providing written comment or providing public comment, when public hearings are scheduled. Your written or public comments regarding proposed rules improve our efforts in developing final rules.

Rulemaking Activity

Following the CR101 posting, draft versions of WAC 392-172A and 392-140 are available for public comment.  Draft changes were made based on the CR101 and stakeholder input.  

Comments may be provided to speced@k12.wa.us through August 7, 2020 at 5:00 pm.  The CR102 will be posted after August 7 and public hearings scheduled during August-September, 2020.
