Education Agencies

  • Office of Superintendent of Public Instruction (OSPI) is the primary agency charged with overseeing K-12 public education in Washington state. Led by State School Superintendent Randy Dorn, OSPI works with the state’s 295 school districts to administer basic education programs and implement education reform on behalf of more than one million public school students. OSPI is housed in the Old Capitol Building in Olympia.
  • Office of Education Ombuds (OEO)The Office of the Education Ombuds was established by House Bill 3127 which was approved by the Washington State legislature in 2006. The legislature placed OEO within the Office of the Governor to ensure its independence from the public education system.OEO resolves complaints impartially and confidentially and works with all parties involved to find collaborative solutions focusing on the best interests of students. Other functions of OEO include: collecting data and making public policy recommendations to elected officials, promoting family engagement in education and identifying strategies to close the achievement gap.
