|Teacher Licensure Action Alert
With less than one week remaining in this legislative session, school board members and superintendents have been specifically asked by the bill authors to make our voice heard at this critical time.
Today write, call or email your legislators and ask them to vote yes on H.F. 140, the teacher licensure reform bill to ensure a truly non-partisan bill.
*The Teacher licensing system should be consolidated in one entity, namely the Professional Educator Licensing and Standards Board as proposed by the House and the Senate.
*Teacher licensing should be simplified and streamlined into a 4-tier system as proposed by the House and Senate.
* We need more flexibility to hire qualified candidates in hard to fill areas such as CTE or other content areas.
Your legislators need to know how the flexibility and simplicity of a new tiered-licensure system would impact your district and what it means for student opportunities.
