MSBA's major effort this session is attacking the teacher shortage in Minnesota. A key component to attracting and retaining teachers is to eliminate barriers and create pathways for potential teachers. Both H.F. 140 and S.F. 4 provide opportunities to do just that.
H.F. 140 will be heard in the House Ways and Means Committee and S.F. 4 will be incorporated in the Senate Finance bill.
Please reach out to your legislators and let them know you support the new governance model and tiered licensure
system that provides more flexibility, simplicity and alternative pathways to teacher licensure.
