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.

Special Education Citizen Complaint Decisions

Special Education Citizen Complaint (SECC) decisions are listed below for complaints filed January 1, 2014 through December 31, 2016. SECC decisions are written by OSPI, following an investigation of a citizen complaint. Investigations are completed within 60 days of OSPI receiving the complaint. SECC decisions are posted on a calendar-year basis, after the last decision for a calendar year is issued.

How to read case numbers:

  • The first two digits indicate the calendar year the complaint was filed. The second two digits indicate the chronology of our receipt of the complaint. For example, citizen complaint “14-01” means the first complaint OSPI received in 2014.
  • Selecting a case number in the “Issue Index” below will link directly to the complete decision. Information that would lead to identifying a particular student is removed from decisions.

Note: Complaints from 2017 and 2018 may be requested from the OSPI Special Education office. Complaints will be added to the page after the documents have been made accessible.

By default, this table shows all of the records for the given years. To select a specific year, click on that year and click "Apply". You can also select a specific year and then select the specific issues you are interested in by holding down the "Ctrl" button and selecting the issues you are interested in and then clicking "Apply".
