The Minnesota Department of Education will engage in rulemaking when we are given legislative authority to do so. At times the department may have multiple rulemaking projects occurring simultaneously or the department may not be engaged in any rulemaking proceedings.
Information about current rulemaking projects are listed on the left side of this page. The agency maintains an updated public rulemaking docket containing a list of each proposed rule currently under active consideration and each pending rulemaking proceeding.
