MADISON — The Wisconsin Department of Public Instruction will conduct a hearing to accept public testimony on a proposed permanent rule related to changes to licensure for educational interpreters.
The proposed rule amends chapter PI 34 of the Wisconsin Administrative Code with respect to creating flexibility for licensing educational interpreters. The proposed rule eliminates the requirement for certain educational interpreters to complete the educational interpreters performance assessment (EIPA) as a condition of their renewal once the licensee passes the EIPA with a score of 3.5 or above.
Those intending to testify at the hearing will be required to present photo identification at the security desk near the Webster Street public entrance. Those using the building’s Butler Street handicapped accessible entrance should press a doorbell for admittance and check in with security. Written comments received no later than Oct. 11 will be given the same consideration as testimony presented at the hearing.
A copy of the proposed rules is available on the department's Administrative Rules webpage or the Wisconsin Legislature Rules site. Written comments on the proposed permanent rule may be made via the department’s form for submitting public comment. Questions or additional testimony on the rules may be sent by email to the department’s administrative rules coordinator or by U.S. mail to Carl Bryan, administrative rules coordinator, 125 South Webster Street, P.O. Box 7841, Madison, WI 53707-7841.
WHEN: Thursday, October 3, 2019, 2:30 to 4:00 p.m.
WHERE: Wisconsin Department of Public Instruction (GEF3)
