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.

A teacher who has completed 24 quarter hours (16 semester credit hours) of the required special education coursework will be eligible for a pre-endorsement waiver which will allow that teacher to be employed as a special education teacher. The remaining credits and all endorsement requirements must be completed within five years of service as a special education teacher (WAC 392-172A-02090).
