Department of Education delays guidance on TPS expansion

From On EdTech: “The US Department of Education (ED) revised Dear Colleague Letter 23-03 (DCL 23-03) to both extend the period for public commenting and more importantly to delay the effective date. This delays the vast expansion of which organizations will be considered third-party servicers (TPSs) and potentially will allow ED a way out of this mess. … Most importantly, this means that schools no longer have to report what they consider contracts with TPSs by May 1, 2023. Schools now have until September 1, 2023. This should give time for public comment and debate to occur before schools need to commit to their reports. Regarding the public comment period, it no longer closes March 17, 2023; it now closes in 30 days, on March 30, 2023.”
