On July 22, 2019, OSSE shared an Advanced Notice of Proposed Rulemaking (“ANPR”) proposing amendments to Chapter 23 of Title 5-A in the District of Columbia Municipal Regulations that set forth the framework for testing integrity and security. The purpose of the proposed rulemaking is to protect the integrity of the statewide assessments and to assure that results are accurate and meaningful.
To ensure an opportunity for the public to provide input prior to formal rulemaking, the Advanced Notice of Proposed Rulemaking will be posted for 30 calendar days and open for public comment within the same period. The public comment period is open from July 22, 2019 through August 21, 2019. A Notice of Proposed Rulemaking will be published in the District of Columbia Register thereafter, providing further opportunity for public comment prior to final adoption of the rules. All comments received will be taken into consideration as part of the proposed rulemaking process prior to final adoption of these rules. In addition, final rulemaking action will not be taken until the later of 30 days after the date of publication of the Notice of Proposed Rulemaking in the DC Register.
