OSPI’s Website Address Change

OSPI has an important update about our website URL. As part of our ongoing efforts to improve functionality and increase internet security, we are changing our current URL from k12.wa.us to ospi.k12.wa.us.

This change is required for improved security.

Effective Date: September 1, 2023
Old URL: k12.wa.us
New URL: ospi.k12.wa.us

Please make sure to update your bookmarks, links, and saved pages to reflect this change. Rest assured, all the content and functionality you've come to rely on will remain intact at the new URL. Redirects will be in place for a period of at least six months, so please use the new URL in all your communications and program materials.

If you encounter any issues or have any questions regarding this URL change, please don't hesitate to reach out to our support team at webteam@k12.wa.us. We're here to assist you and ensure a seamless transition.

Thank you for your continued support and collaboration as we work towards enhancing our web presence and internet security.
