MADISON — The Wisconsin Department of Public Instruction will hold a public hearing to accept public testimony on emergency and proposed permanent administrative rules related to specific learning disability evaluations in homeschool and private school settings.

The proposed rules, Clearinghouse rule 21-102 and Emergency Rule 2129, amend Wis. Admin. Code Ch. PI 11 with respect to evaluations for specific learning disabilities (SLD) of children in homeschool and private school settings. The proposed permanent and emergency rules provide that when evaluating a child in a private school or home-based private education program, IEP teams may use the significant discrepancy method as an alternate procedure for identifying a child with an SLD.

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’s rules webpage. 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.
