WAC 392-502-020

Online provider approval process and timeline.

(1) This section sets forth the process that online providers must follow to be approved in accordance with RCW 28A.250.020. Beginning with the 2013-14 school year, all online providers must be approved by the superintendent of public instruction for districts to collect state funding, to the extent otherwise allowed by state law, for courses offered by those providers in accordance with WAC 392-502-080.
(2) All online providers seeking initial approval must apply to the superintendent of public instruction for approval as follows:
(a) Multidistrict online providers must submit an application as outlined on the superintendent of public instruction web site which will be reviewed for compliance with the designated approval criteria and must meet or exceed the acceptable defined score. Multidistrict online providers must comply with the superintendent of public instruction's required assurances.
(b) Affiliate providers must submit an affiliate provider application as outlined on the superintendent of public instruction web site. Affiliate providers must also comply with the superintendent of public instruction's required assurances.
(c) Single-district providers must submit a single-district provider application as outlined on the superintendent of public instruction web site. Single-district providers must also comply with the superintendent of public instruction's required assurances.
(3) The superintendent of public instruction makes decisions regarding approval of multidistrict provider applications submitted pursuant to this chapter no later than November 1st of each year. A multidistrict online provider's approval status takes effect the beginning of the school year following the date of the superintendent's approval of the online provider's application. Single-district and affiliate providers may apply at any point, and, subject to the requirements of approval, can be approved immediately by the superintendent of public instruction.
(4) Beginning with the 2012-13 school year, any proposed modifications to the conditions for approval, required assurances, approval criteria, and application forms will appear on the superintendent of public instruction web site by October 1st of each year.
