MADISON — The Wisconsin Department of Public Instruction will hold an administrative rules hearing to accept public testimony on an emergency rule related to expanding virtual summer and interim session courses. The objective of the emergency rule is to expand the grade levels in which school districts and County Children with Disabilities Education Boards may receive state aid in providing virtual instruction during summer and interim session courses, as necessitated by the COVID-19 pandemic.
 
Pursuant to Wis. Stat. 227.24 (4), the department must hold a public hearing within 45 days after it promulgates emergency rules. As such, this hearing allows public testimony on the emergency rule. This hearing will be held via teleconference only. Written comments received no later than the date of the hearing 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 may be submitted online in lieu of testimony by June 8 using this form, or sent to the department’s administrative rules coordinator by email, or by U.S. mail to Carl Bryan, administrative rules coordinator, 125 South Webster Street, P.O. Box 7841, Madison, WI 53707-7841.
