About Certification (OSPI)
Washington State Legislature changed the process for certification, giving the responsibility to OSPI in early 2014. As a result, the NWESD is no longer able to help with Certification questions and/or issues. The OSPI Certification office webpage has information about certificates and the certification process. Please see the links below and/or contact the OSPI Certification office directly with questions regarding certification for certificated staff, as well as paraeducators.
