MADISON — The Wisconsin Department of Public Instruction will hold an administrative rules hearing to accept public testimony on a proposed permanent rule related to expanding virtual summer and interim session courses.
The proposed rule, Clearinghouse Rule 21-008, seeks to amend Wis. Admin. Code sec PI 17 to include virtual instruction taught to any grade level during summer classes or laboratory periods that are necessary for academic purposes. The objective of the proposed rule is to expand options for school districts and county children with disabilities education boards, and create consistency between the rules governing how virtual courses are aided during the summer and interim session, and the regular school year.
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 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.
