(1) In order to be granted a waiver by the superintendent of public instruction under RCW 28A.305.141 to operate one or more schools on a flexible calendar for purposes of economy and efficiency, a school district eligible for such waiver must meet each of the requirements of RCW 28A.305.141(2).
(2) In the event that a greater number of requests for waivers are received that meet the requirement of subsection (1) of this section than may be granted by the superintendent of public instruction under RCW 28A.305.141(3), if the superintendent of public instruction determines that the applying districts are otherwise eligible, their applications will be prioritized based on the following criteria:
(a) Districts that are already operating on a flexible calendar under this waiver program;
(b) Those plans that best redirect monetary savings from the proposed flexible calendar to support student learning;
(c) The plan summarizes how the district considered equity in the development of the plan. This may include, but is not limited to, an equity analysis, community feedback, or other means to assess the consequences of the waiver; and
(d) Other relevant information that may include financial savings, academic indicators, quality of application, community support, and alignment to the district's strategic plan.
