DAR File No.: 41936
Filed: 07/19/2017 02:03:57 PM

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:

Subsection 53A-17a-109(3) requires the Utah State Board of Education (Board) to adopt rules and govern the approval of necessarily existent small schools consistent with state law; 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:

This rule continues to be necessary because it specifies the standards by which the Board classifies schools as necessarily existent, which qualifies the schools for additional funding. Therefore, this rule should be continued.
