OSPI Closed Today, July 13

Due to the ongoing fight to reduce the impacts of COVID-19, the budget impacts of the pandemic, and the recent directive by Governor Inslee to reduce employee work hours as a cost savings measure, OSPI is closed and all staff are on mandatory furlough today. Employees will respond to inquiries as quickly as possible when the agency reopens on July 14.

See OSPI’s COVID-19 guidance and resources for educators, students, and families.

Refund Policy

Fee Payment: Fees are NOT refundable. Please ensure you select and submit the correct application as the OSPI fee will not apply toward a future or corrected application and will need to be paid with each application submitted.

The Office of Superintendent of Public Instruction (OSPI) will charge a non-refundable processing fee for processing all certificate applications or requests for administrative actions referred to within WAC 392-194-002. Once an individual submits an application and related processing fee, either electronically or on paper, OSPI will under no circumstances refund the fee. In the event an individual pays a processing fee without submitting an application, OSPI will consider returning the payment.
