Senate Roll Call 98 on
2019 Senate Bill 657: Revise special education teacher certificate

To revise a law that allows teachers in the process of getting a state teachers certificate to teach under an interim teaching certificate, by repealing a provision that bans this for special education teachers. However, candidates would be required to obtain the equivalent of 32 credit hours of training to qualify, with each credit representing seven hours in the classroom. The bill would also require the state to contract with a university to obtain a report on school teacher shortage claims (an area where special education programs in particular appear to face challenges).
