MADISON — The Wisconsin Department of Public Instruction will hold a public hearing and comment period to consider promulgation of administrative rules under a statement of scope on a proposed permanent and emergency rule related to experience for student teachers enrolled in an educator preparation program.
 
The proposed permanent rule, SS 020-22, seeks to amend Wis. Admin. Code Ch. PI 34 with respect to equivalent experience for student teachers who are enrolled in an educator preparation program.
 
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 scope statement 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.

WHEN: 11:30 a.m. on Wednesday, March 23, 2022
WHERE: Conference call only; Phone number: 608-620-9781; Conference ID: 908 225 449#
