Department will hold public hearing on proposed rules related to educator licenses

Wednesday, November 24, 2021


DPI Media Line, (608) 266-3559

MADISON — The Wisconsin Department of Public Instruction will hold preliminary public hearing and comment period to consider promulgation of administrative rules under two statements of scope, one relating to grade ranges for school administrators and speech-language pathologists, and the other related to tier I, three-year school district-sponsored licenses with stipulations.

A proposed permanent rule, SS 103-21, seeks to make clarifications to the grade ranges in which school administrators and speech-language pathologists are permitted to work in a Wisconsin school. Additionally, a proposed permanent rule, SS 104-21, seeks to amend Wis. Admin. Code Ch. 34 with respect to the DPI’s Tier I, three-year school district-sponsored license with stipulations.

Pursuant to Wis. Stat. 227.135(1), a statement of scope is prepared in advance of any rule that an agency plans to promulgate. A preliminary public hearing and comment period on a statement of scope does not relieve the agency of its obligation to hold an agency hearing on proposed rules after proposed rules are available for review. When a proposed rule is available for review, the department will conduct additional public hearings on the proposed rule.

The DPI will hold the public hearing by teleconference only. Additional information on attending is provided below. 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 rule is available on the department's Administrative Rules webpage or the Wisconsin Legislature Rules site. Written comments may be submitted in lieu of testimony online via the legislature’s webpage for submitting public comment. Questions or additional testimony may be sent by email to the department’s administrative rules coordinator.

WHEN: 10:30 a.m. on Friday, Dec. 3, 2021
WHERE: Conference call only; Phone number: 608-620-9781; Conference ID: 951 697 83#
