DPI Statements of Scope

 

Revising PI 6 Relating to Library System Standards and Librarian Certification (SS 032-17). The proposed rule seeks to amend current administrative rules governing public libraries with respect to establishing minimum standards for public library system services through better library system coordination, as well as supporting and ensuring effective leadership and service to the public through the library director certification program. The rule will also set standards for public library systems to meet in providing and measuring training and continuing education provided to public library trustees and staff, including directors.

Changes to PI 15 as a result of 2017 Wisconsin Act 59 (SS 125-17). Recent changes to rules governing the revenue limit exemption for energy efficiencies were promulgated and became effective on May 1, 2016. Since then, 2017 Wisconsin Act 59, the 2017-19 biennial budget, prohibited school boards from considering a resolution to utilize the revenue limit exemption for energy efficiencies after December 31, 2017 until December 3018. Therefore, a rule change is needed to implement the changes in statute as a result of 2017 Wisconsin Act 59.

Revising PI 35, 48 and 49 Relating to Changes to rules governing Parental Choice Programs and Special Needs Scholarship Program as a result of 2017 Wisconsin Acts 36 and 59 and other changes (SS 111-17). The proposed rule will amend Chapters PI 35, 48, and 49 of the Wisconsin Administrative Code, in order to conform Department rules governing the parental choice programs and the special needs scholarship program to changes in statute as a result of 2017 Wisconsin Acts 36 and 59. The proposed rule will also make other various changes to conform the rule to best practices and efficiencies in program administration.

Revising PI 40 Relating to Revisions as a Result of 2017 Wisconsin Act 59 (SS 110-17). The proposed rule will repeal and recreate Chapter PI 40 of the Wisconsin Administrative Code to implement the Early College Credit Program, which replaced the Youth Options Program as a result of 2017 Wisconsin Act 59, the 2017-19 budget.
