Petition Information
Petition Title Supervision by videoconference
Date Filed 11/1/2010    [Transmittal Sheet]
Petitioner Maria Stransky 
Petitioner's Request

To amend regulations for supervision of an applicant for certification as a sex offender treatment provider to allow a percentage of supervision sessions by videoconference.

Agency's Plan

The board will discuss the petition at its meeting on February 8, 2011 and make a decision on whether to initiate regulatory action.

Comment Period Ended 12/12/2010
Agency Decision Take no action    
Response Date 2/8/2011
Agency Decision Summary

To deny petition but to request any additional information to indicate the need for teleconferencing supervision.  At the end of 2010, there were 396 persons certified to provide sex offender treatment.  While the Board does not keep records on work sites, it believes that a number of those are employed by the Department of Corrections.  Therefore, the Board was not convinced that teleconferencing was essential in order to have supervision available in all parts of the state.
