Administrative Rules

Welcome to Administrative Rules


The Utah State Board of Education is tasked by the legislature to make administrative rules regarding various topics within education. These rules have the effect of law and govern many areas that impact all levels of the education community. On this page you will find all current rules in effect (see below), rules that are currently being considered (see Board Rule Status), rules that have been created or amended in the past (see Board Rule Records), rules that incorporate other documents as part of the rule (see Documents Incorporated by Reference in a Rule), and other resources. The infographic below provides an outline of the rulemaking process. Please contact the Policy and Law team with any questions.
