Comprehensive Counseling and Guidance Program

Five-Year Notice of Review and Statement of Continuation

DAR File No.: 43739
Filed: 05/23/2019 10:57:08 AM


Concise explanation of the particular statutory provisions under which the rule is enacted and how these provisions authorize or require the rule:

This rule is authorized by Utah Constitution Article X, Section 3, which vests general control and authority over public education in the Utah State Board of Education (Board), by Subsection 53E-2-304(2)(b) which directs local boards to develop policies for the implementation of a Student Education Occupational Plan (SEOP)/Plan for College and Career Readiness, and by Subsection 53E-3-401(4), which allows the Board to adopt rules in accordance with its responsibilities.

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 comments have 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 the rule establishes standards and procedures for entities applying for funds appropriated for Comprehensive Counseling and Guidance Programs administered by the Board, establishes counselor to student ratios as a requirement for all secondary schools, establishes provisions for local education agencies (LEAs) not meeting the minimum counselor to student ratios, and directs that LEA and building level policies and practices shall free licensed school counselors for appropriate identified activities with secondary students. Therefore, this rule should be continued.
