Regulations Governing Adult High School Programs
Time Waiver Request
Go to View Stage
Since more than 180 days have passed since the end of the
stage, a Time Frame Waiver must be granted by the Governor's office.
This waiver was requested on 3/18/2014
Agency Reason: On behalf of the Board of Education, the Department of Education submits the following request to waive the 180 day requirement to submit proposed regulations following the close of the NOIRA public comment period.
Emergency action to amend the Regulations Governing Adult High School Programs, and repeal the Regulations Governing the General Achievement Diploma was approved by the Governor and published in the Register June 17, 2013. The emergency regulations became effective July 17, 2013 and expire July 17, 2014. The NOIRA public comment period for the permanent amendments closed July 17, 2013, which would make the proposed permanent regulations due to DPB by January 13, 2014.
The Board of Education approved permanent amendments to the Regulations Governing Adult High School Programs (8 VAC 20-680) and repeal of the Regulations Governing the General Achievement Diplomas (8 VAC 20-680) to replace the emergency regulations at its November 21, 2013 meeting.
The permanent amendments were exactly the same as the emergency regulations.
Upon the Board’s approval, the proposed regulations were submitted to the Office of the Attorney General in the Town Hall system November 22, 2013. The Department and Board’s actions were in compliance with the 180 days requirements; however, the certification by the Office of the Attorney General has taken longer than expected and exceeded the 180 day requirement to submit proposed regulations.
The request was removed from the Gov’s pending list and information about missed time frame deadline will now be included in the agency’s annual report about such events
