OSPI Reports to the Legislature

The State Legislature assigns work to OSPI through legislation. Sometimes, the assigned work concludes in a report back to the Legislature describing what OSPI has done, data collected, next steps, and at times, recommendations.

Reports going back to 2019 are included below. If the report title says "Update," it means the Legislature requires OSPI to submit more than one report on the topic.


The High School Graduation Plan (HSBP) is a graduation requirement and a critical component of supporting students' career development throughout their secondary education experience. The Legislature has revised and strengthened HSBP requirements to include the implementation of a universal online HSBP platform that can be readily accessed by students, families, teachers, and others who support students' academic and career development. The Legislature requires the Office of Superintendent of Public Instruction (OSPI) to facilitate the transition of the HSBP to a universal online platform. This is the first of three reports to the Legislature.

The Office of Superintendent of Public Instruction (OSPI) is required by RCW 28A.250.040 to report annually on online learning. In the 2022–23 school year, more students accessed online courses and more schools and districts used online courses. There was a small reduction in the overall number of online courses.
