Board Recommends Sunsetting Late DLI, Keeping UPPAC

The Utah State Board of Education recommends the legislature allow the pilot program for late enrollment in dual language immersion (DLI) be allowed to sunset on July 1, 2023. The program allowed districts and charter schools to offer online language courses to students who intended to enroll in dual language immersion and did not get into a program, and required the board to select schools to participate in the pilot program to offer an online language course to interested students. No districts or charters applied for the program and the legislature eliminated the appropriation for the program.

Additionally, the board recommended the legislature remove the July 1, 2023 sunset date for the Utah Professional Practices Advisory Commission (UPPAC). The commission reviews and investigates complaints of educator misconduct, and makes recommendations for state board action on educator licenses.
