DEL's Director's List


Printer-friendly version

On July 14, 2016, DEL filed a preproposal statement of inquiry anticipating the possibility of making significant revisions to WAC 170-06 to improve its Director’s list of disqualifying crimes and other associated processes. Revisions may include changes, including additions or deletions, to the director’s list, the creation of different types of disqualification time periods and changes to the reconsideration and disqualification rules and their processes. The revisions promote the continued health and safety of children in early learning settings and will ensure compliance with RCW 9.96A.020. DEL may filed proposed rules on these subjects after consideration of input received as a result of the Preproposal Statement of Inquiry.
