NOTICE OF REVIEW AND STATEMENT OF CONTINUATION
Concise explanation of the particular statutory provisions under which the rule is enacted and how these provisions authorize or require the rule:
Sections 53A-1-603 through 53A-1-611 direct the Utah State Board of Education (Board) to adopt rules for the maintenance and administration of U-PASS; Subsection 53A-15-1403(9)(b) requires the Board to adopt rules to establish a statewide procedure for excusing a student from taking certain assessments; and Section 53A-1-401 allows the Board to make rules to execute the Board's duties and responsibilities under the Utah Constitution and state law.
Summary of written comments received during and since the last five-year review of the rule from interested persons supporting or opposing the rule:
No written comment has been received.
Reasoned justification for continuation of the rule, including reasons why the agency disagrees with comments in opposition to the rule, if any:
Rule R277-404 continues to be necessary because it provides procedures for a Board developed and directed comprehensive assessment system for all students, as required by state and federal law. Therefore, this rule should be continued.
