Emergency and proposed rules

There were two child- and youth-related emergency and proposed rules published in the January 22, 2010 DC Register:
  • The Office of the State Superintendent of Education (OSSE) published proposed rules in the January 22 DC Register related to qualifications for Montessori school directors and teachers.   The proposal revises adult/child ratios and group size requirements.   OSSE plans to take action in not less than 30 days from the date of publication.   Comments should be submitted to the State Superintendent of Education; details are in the notice.
  • The Child and Family Services Agency has published emergency and proposed rules for independent living programs.   The rule amends Section 6323.7 of Chapter 63 (Licensing of Independent Living Programs for Adolescents and Young Adults) of Title 29 (Public Welfare) of the District of Columbia Municipal Regulations to require independent living programs to employ at least one social worker for every 20 program residents.   The rule became effective January 12.   They will remain in effect for 120 days from the date of adoption, unless earlier rescinded or superseded by a Notice of Final Rulemaking.   CFSA will take action on final rulemaking in not less than 30 days of publication of this notice in the DCR.   Details about submitting comments are in the notice.
