PREPROPOSAL STATEMENT OF INQUIRY
Subject of Possible Rule Making: Chapter 478-140 WAC, Rules and regulations for the University of Washington governing student education records.
Statutes Authorizing the Agency to Adopt Rules on this Subject: RCW 28B.20.130.
Reasons Why Rules on this Subject may be Needed and What They Might Accomplish: The University of Washington intends to revise this chapter due to recent amendments by the Department of Education to the federal regulations implementing the Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA - 20 U.S.C. § 1232g). In addition, as the chapter has not been comprehensively amended since July 1999, the university will update this chapter as necessary to reflect current administrative practices.
Other Federal and State Agencies that Regulate this Subject and the Process Coordinating the Rule with These Agencies: None.
Process for Developing New Rule: Agency study.
Interested parties can participate in the decision to adopt the new rule and formulation of the proposed rule before publication. Written comments or inquiries may be directed to Rebecca Goodwin Deardorff, Director of Rules Coordination, University of Washington, Rules Coordination Office, Box 351210, Seattle, WA 98195-1210, e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org, fax (206) 685-3825.
