Monthly Ask an Ombuds Hour

In March, the Governor’s Office of the Education Ombuds launched a monthly “Ask an Ombuds” hour. The first event happened on March 14.

“Ask an Ombuds” hour will take place every second Tuesday of the month from noon-1 p.m. Every third month will be completely in Spanish. The Governor’s Office of the Education Ombuds is happy to arrange language access and disability accommodations, with some advance notice through oeoinfo@gov.wa.gov or by dialing their main line a day or two before the event just to make sure that we’ve coordinated with the language line or secured other assistance. 

The Ombuds coordinating this first session would appreciate questions in advance to the oeoinfo email address (oeoinfo@gov.wa.gov), but she can also answer questions live. Read more.
