Bill Caption

Relating to requirements for educator preparation program support for certain candidates for certification.

Fiscal Notes

No significant fiscal implication to the State is anticipated. 

Bill Analysis

HB 2775 would prohibit educator preparation programs from mandating in person observation and evaluations of certain teacher certification candidates in an education preparation program. This would require the program to be flexible and allow evaluations to take place via audio/visual transmission means.

Vote Recommendation Notes

This bill promotes flexibility and efficiency for those working to obtain a certificate other than a certificate for classroom teacher in an educator preparation program. This upholds our limited government principle and therefore, we support this bill.
