IT WAS ORIGINALLY INCLUDED THAT POLICY BILL BUT IT WAS NOTICED THE WAY IT WAS DRAFTED WITH THE COST A LITTLE BIT OF A FUSS COME OUT SO THOUGHTFUL THINGS HAVE BEEN WORKED OUT AND SO BECAUSE OF THAT I WANTED A LITTLE BIT MORE TESTIMONY WHEN IT CAME TO DOING THE DEED TO A MAN SO.

AN AREA THAT’S NOT RELATED TO THAT TUTORING I WRITE NOT RELATE TO THE INTERVENTIONS AND BECAUSE OF THAT THEY ARE INELIGIBLE FOR THE ADS THE SERVICES BECAUSE THE DEPARTMENT SAYS IF YOU HAVE AN IPO COULD NOT BE ELSE. WELL FOR THOSE SERVICES. THIS WOULD ALLOW DISTRICTS TO SERVE STUDENTS WITH A KNIFE P A NOT RELATED AREA. THEY COULD NOT DISPLACE A STUDENT THAT DOES NOT HAVE AN IP THEY WOULD HAVE TO DO IT WITHIN THE CONFINES OF THE PROGRAM AS OUTLINED AND SO THERE WOULD BE NO FISCAL IMPLICATIONS. I THINK I BELIEVE WE WANT TO BRING UP MISTER COURTIER JUST THAT MISTER COREY GIVE THE THUMBS UP SEEING THE 2 WORKED ON THE LANGUAGE WHATEVER’S YOU ARE.>>LET’S SEE MEMBERS WE HAVE ANY QUESTIONS 70 TO AMENDMENT.

WHAT IS A QUALIFIED TEACHERS DEFINED IN SECTIONS; ONE 22 A 0.1 6 IT WAS JUST A WAY TO QUALIFY TO A STUDENT MEDIA ADVISOR IS AND THEN ON TO POINT THE LANGUAGE THAT WAS ADDED WAS FREEDOM OF SPEECH INCLUDES FREEDOM TO EXPRESS POLITICAL VIEWPOINTS.

IT’S WE HAVE A D E NOW BEFORE US THAT REPLACES THE BILL FROM LAST YEAR WHEN A STUDENT JOURNALIST PUBLISHED A CRITICAL OPINION ABOUT SOMEONE TO REVEAL LIKE AN UNPLEASANT TRUTHS SO LONG AS INFORMATION IS NOT. MADAME CHAIR REP CENT SCOTT WE HAD LENGTHY TESTIMONY ON THAT LAST USE IT JUST AS A QUICK REFRESHER.>>IF YOU LOOK AT LINES 2.1 7 TO 2.2 IT GOES DIRECTLY TO THAT POINT OF WHAT PROTECTED SPEECH IS NOT AND X; ESPECIALLY IF YOU LOOK AT 2.2 POINT TO POINT TO 4. STUDENT POLICIES THAT SCHOOL DISTRICTS HAVE PUT IN PLACE OVERRIDES THE CEMENT. SO IF I’M NOT SURE IF YOU’RE THINKING OF SOMETHING THAT BULLYING OR SOMETHING EVEN IF IT’S TOO IT’S JUST NOT RIGHT THE SCHOOL DISTRICT WOULD STILL HAVE CONTROL OF IT REPRESENT SCOTT OKAY; THANK YOU; THANK YOU; MADAM CHEN; THANKS FOR THAT ANSWER. ANDERSON DIVISION; 3 WHO MAKES THE DETERMINATION.>>IF SOMETHING IS PROTECTED OR NOT PROTECTED AND YOU CAN BRING AN ALLEGATION OF A VIOLATION TO YOU OK; THANK YOU MAN CHAIR REPRESENTS THAT. ONCE AGAIN IN 2.1 7 TO 2.2 4 AND HAS VERY STRICT DEFINITIONS OF WHAT IS NOT PROTECTED SPEECH AND THAT WOULD STILL BE UNDER THE PURVIEW OF THE ADMINISTRATION.>>IF THIS IS SCOTT; THANK YOU WORK IT DOES IT SAY WHAT IS IT THAT’S A FIGHT THAT IF THE ADMINISTRATION THE CHERRY-PICKING. HAVE BEEN CHAIR REPRESENTATIVES THAT I GUESS I’M TALKING MORE ABOUT THE 2.2 TO 2.2 OR IF IT BREAKS THE SCHOOL DISTRICT ROLES. OTHERWISE THERE’S CLEAR DEFINITIONS IN LEGAL STATUTE OF WHAT DEFAMATORY IS THE PROFANE HARASSING THREATENING OR INTIMIDATING WOULD ALSO FALL UNDER SCHOOL POLICY THE CONSTITUTED AND MORNING UNWARRANTED INVASION OF PRIVACY SCHOOL POLICY AND STATE LAW AND THEN ALSO 2.2 0 VIOLATES FEDERAL OR STATE TO POINT TO ONE CAUSES OF MATERIAL AND A SUBSTANTIAL DISRUPTION OF SCHOOL ACTIVITIES THAT WOULD THAT WOULD BE THE DISTRICT DECIDING THAT NO ONE ELSE WOULD BE UP TO THIS SITE. REPRESENT SCOTT; THANK YOU; THANK YOU; MADAM CHAIR; BUT FINAL QUESTION THEN SO IS THERE ANY DISCIPLINARY ACTION IN AT THE END OF THIS BILL I’M FORCED IN IOWA. PERCENT OF CERIO CAN SHARE EVIDENCE THAT THAT WOULD BE UP TO THE END OF THE PATH OF THE STRICT ANY DISCIPLINARY STUFF THAT’S ALREADY THE STATE LAW ISN’T BEING CHANGED BY THIS.

REPRESENTATIVE AND A SPECIFIC THE SUPERINTENDENT AND THE DISTRICT WHERE THIS WILL BE COMING IN TO TESTIFY STRONGLY AGAINST THE BILL.>>SO WITH THIS D ON AMENDMENT. I TEND TO SUPPORT WHAT’S CURRENTLY IN STATUTE WHICH GIVES. BY LOCAL ADMINISTRATION ON WHAT IS PUBLISHED. AND YOU KNOW; I’M NOT A LAWYER BUT READING THIS BILL I THINK WE’RE WEAKENING THAT POSITION AND THAT CONCERNS ME BECAUSE I DO THINK WE PAY SUPERINTENDENTS AND ADMINISTRATORS.>>EXCELLENT MONEY TOO. BE ABLE TO MAKE THOSE DETERMINATIONS AND HAVING BEEN CHIEF NEGOTIATOR IN. FOR CERTIFIED STAFF OR 6 YEARS. MY SCHOOL WAS ON THE SCHOOL BOARD; YOU KNOW ONE OF THE THINGS THEY STOOD STRONGLY AGAINST WAS NEGOTIATING AWAY.>>SUPERVISORY RIGHTS. AND SO MY CONCERN IS THAT THIS LANGUAGE.>>EVEN UNDER THE D ONE AMENDMENT. STARTS MOVING US INTO WEAKENING THE POSITION OF ADMINISTRATION IN TERMS OF SUPERVISION OF MEDIA AND THAT’S WHERE IT GETS TO HAVE MY STRONG CONCERN ABOUT ANY THOUGHTS ABOUT THAT.>>REPRESENTATIVE GOING TO GET I DO WANT TO REMIND YOU THAT THIS THIS BILL IS EXACTLY WHAT WE HEARD AND IT WAS PASSED THROUGH LAST SURE AND SO IT’S TO IT; IT’S A CHAIR; OKAY TO YELL CAME. THANK YOU PERCENT OF UP 17 HAGAN AND SAY HERE THAT YOU CHANGE YOUR MIND YOU ACTUALLY DID VOTE IN FAVOR FOR AT LAST YEAR’S THAT LEFT COMMITTEE I THINK WE MADE IT STRONGER WITH REPRESENTATIVE ERICKSON’S AMENDMENT AND THE OR ON THAT BEING SAID I MISTER CLINTON SPOKE AGAINST IT IT WAS A VOICE VOTE A LISTEN TO THE TAPE. MISTER ARONSON SPOKE A VOTE. BUT POLICE CAN’T MISTER A SPOKE AGAINST BUT WE DID HAVE TEACHERS STUDENTS THAT HAD BEEN AFFECTED BY THIS LAW COMING TEST BY SO THAT MIGHT BE WHAT YOU REMEMBER; AND WE DID HAVE A SURPRISE TESTIMONY FROM. I BELIEVE IT WAS. OH MY GOSH MY MIND JUST STOPPED IT WAS UP BY WOMEN I LIVE THE SAINT FRANCIS CAME DOWN LEFT AND THE SAND SPOKE BECAUSE MISTER ARONSON HEAD KIND OF THAT. HAD SAID ONE THING AND SHE SAID ANOTHER AND THEN WE JUST KIND OF PUT THAT ASIDE AND WE VOTED ON THE BELT SO THAT MIGHT BE PRIVATE. PART OF WHAT YOU’RE REMEMBERING.>>JUST FOR NOT REPRESENT GOING TO COME AFTER THAT THANKS FOR THAT IF YOU KNOW WHAT THEY DID FOR FOR QUITE A BIT OF COFFEE AT THE U SO THE HUMIDITY. I JUST DON’T REMEMBER BE THAT AS IT YOU KNOW I JUST.

I THINK WE SHOULD SET IT ON THE HOUSE FLOOR THE WAY WE HAD IT LAST YEAR AND WE’LL SEE WHAT HAPPEN IT’S IN THE SENATE SO MADAM CHAIR I WOULD ASK MEMBERS FOR THEIR SUPPORT OK.>>SO CHERRY REYNOSA MOTION THAT HOUSE FILE 1868 AS AMENDED AND BE PLACED ON THE GENERAL REGISTER.

SOME OF THE LANGUAGE BOARD BUT TO US LAST YEAR DIDN’T QUITE MAKE IT THROUGH ALL THE WAY THROUGH CONFERENCE COMMITTEE SO THAT INCLUDED IN THIS LANGUAGE AND I HAVE TEST FIRES HERE TO SPEAK TO THAT BUT FIRST I HAVE ONE AMENDMENT TO FORCE THAT I WOULD LIKE TO MOVE TO GET THE BILL IN THE SHAPE. I’D LIKE TO DISCUSS.>>ALRIGHT CERIO KEY MOVES THE A ONE AMENDMENT. IS THERE ANY FURTHER DISCUSSION. HEARING NONE; THOSE IN FAVOR SUCH A VOTE. JUST NICE TO KNOW THAT THIS PLEASE DO BECAUSE IT IS A LITTLE THE CHANGE AND IT SAID IT’S A BILL THAT YOU HOT IT’S A BILL THAT YET SECTION THAT YOU’LL ACTUALLY HEAR MORE ABOUT. AND WE HAVE THEM TO EAT BEFORE US THEM THESE BILLS BEFORE US I JUST WANT TO GIVE YOU THE HEADS UP THAT THIS TAKES REMOVES THE BASIC SKILLS ASKED FROM THE TEACHER LICENSURE PROGRAM THEY STILL HAVE TO TAKE ALL THEIR PEDAGOGICAL FAST AND THAT E E D TP ALL AND OTHER TESTS THIS JUST HOW WOULD I SAY NON-TRADITIONAL TEACHERS COMING IN AND I’M KIND OF THINK OF IT LIKE THAT ADDITIONAL TEACHERS THAT TEACHERS LIKE PEOPLE LIKE ME WHO JUST GOT IT DONE GRAD SCHOOL WITHOUT HAVING TO TAKE A CHERRY BECAUSE I HAVEN’T HAD MATH IN A REALLY LONG TIME. SO THIS HELPED HER NONTRADITIONAL TEACHERS GOING THROUGH OTHER PATHWAYS NOT HAVE TO TAKE THE MATH AND READING TESTS BECAUSE THEY STILL HAVE TO TAKE IT TO THEIR PEDAGOGICAL TESTING AND MAKE SURE THEY KNOW THAT CORE CURRICULUM THAT TEACHES AND THEY HAVE A LOT OF OTHER TEST THAT THEY’RE TAKING BUT I WANTED YOU TO KNOW WHAT THE AMENDMENT DID BEFORE YOU VOTE FOR THAT.>>ALL RIGHT I BELIEVE TEAM HAS MOVED THE A ONE AMENDMENT IS THERE ANY OTHER DISCUSSION. HEARING NONE; THOSE IN FAVOR SAY AYE. THOSE OPPOSED. THE MOTION PREVAILS AND THE AMENDMENT IS ADOPTED HOUSE FILE 35 80 IS NOW BEFORE THE COMMITTEE CERIO TEAM WOULD YOU PLEASE PERCENT OR BILL THANK YOU.>>SO LITTLE BACKGROUND LIKE I SAID IN 2017 THE LEGISLATURE PASSED LEGISLATION COMBINING THE SERVICES PROVIDED BY THE BOARD OF TEACHING IN THE MINNESOTA DEPARTMENT OF EDUCATION ACT EDUCATION’S EDUCATOR LICENSING DIVISION. YOU THE COMBINED INTO ONE ENTITY THAT WE LIVE IN THE CUP COUNTY WHICH IS THE PROFESSIONAL EDUCATORS LICENSING AND STANDARDS FOR THIS BOARD IS NOW CHARGES LICENSING ALL THE TEACHERS IN OUR STATE HOUSE PEACE BEEN FUNCTIONING IN THIS NEW STRUCTURE FOR ALMOST 2 YEARS NOW AND WITH HONOR THINGS SOMETIMES YOU NEED A FEW TWEETS ONCE THEY’VE GOT THAT NO ROAD AND DRIVEN SO THEY’VE BEEN RUNNING FOR WELL NEED SOME CHANGES TO DO THEIR JOBS THEIR PRACTICAL WE CHANT CHANGES THAT ARE EFFECTIVE HOUSE PATH; 8580 AS AMENDED BEFORE YOU TODAY AND WITH ME I HAVE ALEX THE WE TV EXECUTIVE DIRECTOR POUNDS BE HERE TO WALK I ALSO HAVE ILEANA AND AND THE BOARD MEMBER I’M JIM BUT CLOUT FITCH WHICH ALICE GET I’M HERE IN CASE WE HAVE TECHNICAL QUESTION SAID; AND WE’LL KICK IT OVER TO MISTER LOUIS T.>>WELCOME TO THE COMMITTEE AND PLEASE REMEMBER TO IDENTIFY YOURSELF FOR THE RECORD AND YOU MAY BEGIN YOUR TESTIMONY.>>THANK YOU MADAM CHAIR MEMBERS MY NAME IS ALEX LEE; TIM; THE EXECUTIVE DIRECTOR OF PALS BE THE PROFESSIONAL EDUCATOR LICENSING AND STANDARDS BOARD. I’M LIKE THANK CHAIR; YOU CAME FOR OFFERING THIS BILL AND BRING THIS AS SHE STATED A LOT OF THESE PIECES OR I’M IN A BILL LAST YEAR THE MAJORITY OF THEM ARE TECHNICAL; BUT I LIKE TO WALK THROUGH EACH ONE AS QUICKLY AS THEY CAN JUST A MCHUGH WHERE BEACH P IT’S ALL GO THROUGH SECTION BY SECTION. SECTION ONE IS A TECHNICAL PIECE RIGHT NOW A TEAR FOR TEACHER WHO IS ON A SPECIAL PERMISSION MIGHT NOT FIT UNDER THE DEFINITION OF TEACHER IN STATUTE; SO WE JUST ADDED THE WORD PERMISSION FOR THE DEFINITION OF TEACHER PERMISSION SOMEONE WHO HOLDS A TIER 3 OR 2 OR 4 OR POSSIBLY 2 TO LICENSE; WE WANTED THEM TO BE CONSIDERED A TEACHER BY THE DEFINITION IN STATUTE AS WELL THAT’S JUST A TECHNICAL FEAT. SECTION 2 IS ALSO TECHNICAL. WE USE THE WORD LICENSURE AREA OFTEN WHEN WE’RE TALKING NOT FEEL THAT SUBJECT AREA WE JUST ALL THOSE 3 TERMS ARE INTERCHANGEABLE SO WE WANT TO MAKE SURE THAT WAS INCLUDED IN STATUTE. SECTIONS 3 ENDS OR ARE BOTH TECHNICAL AND THERE’S A LOT OF CONFUSION WITH IN TEACHER PREPARATION PROGRAM IN TEACHER PREPARATION PROVIDER. WE JUST WANTED TO MAKE SURE THE LANGUAGE IN STATUTE LINES WITH WHAT’S IN RULE FOR EXAMPLE TO TURN THE TERM 9 CAN VENT WILL IN NO LONGER USE AS A PROGRAM TYPE. SO THAT’S THE LEAD IN THERE AND THEN THE LANGUAGE FOR ALTERNATIVE AND TRADITIONAL TEACHER PREPARATION IS MOVED TO THAT PROVIDER SECTION INSTEAD OF THE PROGRAM SECTION. SECTIONS 5; 6; ARE NOT TECHNICAL THERE ABOUT OUR BOARD COMPOSITION I’M SO WEAK; CURRENTLY ON 11 MEMBER BOARD ALL VOLUNTEERS. THE BASED ON THE CURRENT COMPOSITION 6 OF THOSE MEMBERS ARE UNDER THE TEACHER CATEGORY AND YET ONE OF THOSE TEACHER POSITIONS IS A TEACHER AND TEACHER. PREPARATION TEACHER PREPARATION PROVIDER EDUCATOR SO NOT A CLASSROOM TEACHER BASED ON THE AMOUNT OF WORK LOAD THAT WE HAVE WITH FUTURE DISCIPLINE CASES; TEACHER LICENSURE CASES; THE BOARD HAS A TREMENDOUS WORK LOVE THAT THEY DO OUTSIDE OF BOARD MEETINGS. SO WE ARE PROPOSING ADDING TO TEACHER MEMBERS THAT ARE A BROAD CATEGORIES; LISTED SPECIFICALLY ATTACHED TO THE GOVERNOR HAS THE AUTHORITY TO DECIDE WHAT TYPE OF A TEACHER WOULD FIT THAT CATEGORY AND THEN MOVING THE TEACHER WHO IS IN TEACHER PREPARATION. OUTSIDE OF A TEACHER MEMBER SO THAT THAT SECTION IS SPECIFICALLY FOR CLASSROOM; TEACHERS AND THEN HIGHLIGHTING THAT THERE’S STILL THAT BOARD MEMBER WHO WILL REPRESENT TEACHER PREPARATION PROVIDERS PROBABLY AS WELL. SECTION 7 IS TECHNICAL; IT’S JUST REMOVING OLD LANGUAGE THAT. TALKS LOOK HAITIAN WE NOW HAVE A LOCATION SO WE DON’T NEED THAT IN STATUTE ANYMORE WE’RE IN BEND IN A SQUARE FOR THOSE OF YOU THAT WANT TO COME VISIT US. SECTION 8 IS A TECHNICAL THERE’S STATUTE ONE 22 A THAT 0; 9; 2; SUBDIVISION ONE ACTUALLY GETS THE BOARD RULEMAKING AUTHORITY OVER ALTERNATIVE BUT WE WANTED TO CLOSE THE LOOP BECAUSE THAT’S THAT SUBDIVISION 2 4; 5; 1; WASN’T INCLUDED IN THIS OTHER RULEMAKING PLACE WE KNOW OF A RULEMAKING SPECIALIST WHO IS HELPING US CLEAN UP. ALL OF CLOSING OF LOOPS IN A ROW MAKING AS WELL. SO THAT’S JUST A TECHNICAL PIECE THERE. SECTION 9 IS ALSO LICENSURE VIA PORTFOLIO WHEN SOMEONE COMPLETES A LICENSE TO BE A PORTFOLIO IT ONLY CAN LEAD TO A 2; 3; LICENSE WITH JUST CLARIFYING THAT SECTION IN THE PORTFOLIO STATUTE THAT TEAR 3 LICENSES THE LESSONS AVAILABLE FOR LEICESTER V A PORTFOLIO. SECTION CAN IS NOT THIS CURRENTLY SAYS FOR A TEAR TO INDIVIDUAL YOU CAN RECEIVE A 2 TO LICENSE BY BEING ENROLLED IN A PROGRAM A TEACHER PREPARATION PROGRAM RIGHT NOW IT SAYS MINNESOTA APPROVED. SPECIFICALLY IN THE AREAS OF BLIND VISUALLY IMPAIRED IN AMERICAN SIGN LANGUAGE LICENSURE WEEK HAVE NO PROGRAM IN MINNESOTA AND THERE IS A PROGRAM FOR BLIND VISUALLY IMPAIRED RIGHT ACROSS THE BORDER IN NORTH DAKOTA. THERE ARE SOME GREAT ONLINE PROGRAMS FOR AMERICAN SIGN LANGUAGE SO WE’RE JUST RECOMMENDING CHANGE IN THE LANGUAGE TO STATE APPROVED SO LICENSURE PROGRAMS IN OTHER STATES. IN THOSE SPECIFIC AREAS; SOMEONE COULD BE LIVING IN MINNESOTA TEACHING ON A 2 TO LICENSE WALL AND ROLLED IN THOSE PROGRAMS. WE SPECIFICALLY NORTH DAKOTA STATE UNIVERSITY CAME TO US WITH THIS RECOMMENDATION AND WE BELIEVE IT WOULD HELP THOSE 2 LICENSURE AREAS GREATLY. SECTIONS ARE RELATED. WHAT WE WERE JUST TALKING ABOUT ACTUALLY THE THE TESTING RIGHT NOW EVERY CANDIDATE IN MINNESOTA HAS TO TAKE THE AT T P AS PART OF THEIR TEACHER PREPARATION PROGRAM WHEN THEY COMPLETE THEIR TEACHER PREPARATION PROGRAM; THEY ALSO HAVE TO TAKE A MULTIPLE CHOICE PEDAGOGY EXAM. THIS IS JUST SAYING THAT IF THEY RECEIVE A KIND OF SCORE WE HAVE A PASSING SCORE THAT AT TELLS ME THAT WE HAVE FOR THE A TPA THEY COULD CHOOSE NOT TO TAKE THE PEDAGOGY OF THEM PEDAGOGY MULTIPLE CHOICE EXAM IT DOESN’T REQUIRE THE AT T CAN SAID IT JUST PROVIDES CANDIDATES THAT ABILITY TO DO ONE OR THE OTHER AND COULD POTENTIALLY SAVE A LOT OF CANDIDATES THAT EXTRA FUNDS TO TAKE THE PADDOCK WHICH EXAM IT TPA WE BELIEVE IS A BETTER MEASURE OF THAT AND IT’S UNDERSTAND THE PEDAGOGY THE MULTIPLE CHOICE EXAM. SECTIONS 1314 ARE ALSO NOT TECHNICAL THIS IS ABOUT LICENSURE RENEWAL. CULTURAL COMPETENCE TRAINING AND MEETING THE NEEDS OF ENGLISH LANGUAGE LEARNERS ARE PART OF A BROAD PARAGRAPH AROUND LICENSURE RENEWAL FOR TIER 3 AND TIER FOR IN THIS PARAGRAPH; THE END OF THE PAIR GOT SAYS THAT INDIVIDUAL CAN BE WAIVED ALL THE REQUIREMENTS IN THE ABOVE PARAGRAPH IF THEY SUBMIT THEIR SOME OF THE VALUE RELATION TO THEIR TEACHER DEVELOPMENT AND EVALUATION PROGRAM THAT’S ABOUT A VALUATION DOES NOT NECESSARILY IN PLUDE ASPECTS OF CULTURAL COMPETENCE TRAINING OR MEETING THE NEEDS OF ENGLISH LANGUAGE LEARNERS SO WE RECOMMEND TAKING THE SECTIONS FROM THE TOP AIRCRAFT AND JUST MOVING THEM BELOW THAT SO A TEACHER CAN’T SIMPLY SUBMIT THEIR SUMMIT EVALUATION AND THE WAY FROM WHAT WE BELIEVE ARE CRITICAL TRAININGS FOR TEACHERS TO 3 TO 4 TEACHERS FOR CULTURAL COMPETENCE TRAINING AND MEETING THE NEEDS OF ENGLISH LANGUAGE LEARNERS. SECTION 15 IS THIS IS JUST MAKING SURE THAT ALL REFERENCES TO COLLEGES UNIVERSITIES WHEN TALKING ABOUT TEACHER PREPARATION ARE REMOVED BECAUSE NOW IN MINNESOTA. AND YOU CAN BE A TEACHER PREPARATION PROVIDER THAT’S NOT AT COLLEGE AND UNIVERSITY THAT’S A LANGUAGE CHANGE TO MAKE THAT TECHNICAL. SECTION 1617 ARE NEW THIS YEAR WE DID NOT HAVE THESE LAST YEAR WE ARE NOW ADMINISTRATION OF THE COLLABORATIVE URBAN EDUCATOR AND GREATER MINNESOTA EDUCATOR GRANT. AND IN THAT ADMINISTRATION WE’VE BEEN TALKING WITH A GRANT APPLICANTS THOSE THAT RECEIVED THE GRANT AND THEY JUST SUGGESTED TO CHANGE IS ONE THE ABILITY TO GIVE THEM GRANT FUNDS FOR 2 CONSECUTIVE YEARS TO PROVIDE MORE PROGRAM STABILITY AND THEN TO MOVE REPORTING REQUIREMENT TO THE AND THE ACADEMIC YEAR INSTEAD OF THE END OF UNDER YEAR THAT MAKES MORE SENSE FOR WHEN THEY WOULD REPORT HOW THEIR PROGRAMS ARE DOING. AND THEN FINALLY THE LAST SECTION SECTION IS RELATED TO THIS STARR REPORT THIS IS THE STAFF AUTOMATED REPORTING SYSTEM THAT COLLECTS FROM DISTRICTS ALL LICENSE AND NON LICENSED TEACHERS ARE NOT LICENSED INDIVIDUALS WORKING IN CLASSROOMS; THIS USED TO BE PART OF THE DEPARTMENT OF ADS. IT USED TO FALL INTO THE DEPARTMENT OF THAT HOWEVER WHEN COSBY WAS CREATED IT WAS MOVED TO PELL’S BE TOO. OVERSEAS STARS SO WE HAVE THE I T SYSTEM IN THE STAFF MEMBER THAT WENT ALONG WITH THIS HIGH OVER THERE IS NOT A LICENSE THE DATA AS PART OF THE STARR REPORT THAT WE DID NOT HAVE AUTHORITY OVER. NOR SHOULD BE ABLE TO SEE ITS PRIVATE DATA SO WE’RE RECOMMENDING MOVING US BACK TO THE DEPARTMENT DEPARTMENT OF IT. ALL THE PUBLIC DATA THAT WE ALL THE DATA THAT WE USE FROM THE STARR REPORT IS PUBLIC DATA SO THAT WE COULD STILL ACCESS THAT TO DO OUR COMPLIANCE REPORT. BUT THE DEPARTMENT OF IT WHO USES BOTH THE LICENSE AND AN UNLICENSED A TOUGH FOR REPORTING PURPOSES ON THEIR WEBSITE. IT SEEMED TO BE A BETTER FIT THERE. SO THAT’S JUST MOVING THAT BACK AND WE WOULD PROPOSE OF COURSE EVEN THE FUNDING FOR THE STAFF TO THAT BACK TO THE PERMANENT THAT AS WELL.>>WELL WONDERFUL THANK IS.>>ARE THERE OUT THERE.>>2 ADDITIONAL TESTIFY OR IS DO WE WANT TO WAIT FOR QUESTIONS AFTER EVERYBODY HAS TESTIFIED ARE DOING OK. WE WILL WAIT FOR QUESTIONS UNTIL AFTER EVERYBODY HAS TESTIFIED. SO NEXT WE HAVE DOCTOR AND A BOUNCE BONE STUTTER. AND LAURA MOGUL SON IF YOU WOULD LIKE TO JOIN US OF ALSO AT THE TESTIFYING TABLE; THE. YOU PLEASE GO AHEAD PLEASE MAKE SURE THAT YOU. IDENTIFY YOURSELF AND YOU CAN BEGIN YOUR TESTIFIED. THANK MY NAME IS DOCTOR ROUNDABOUTS BETTER I HAVE A PROFESSOR OF EDUCATION AT SOUTHWEST; MINNESOTA STATE UNIVERSITY AND ALSO THE PRESIDENT OF THE MINNESOTA ASSOCIATION OF COLLEGES OF TEACHER EDUCATION AND IT’S ON THEIR BEHALF SPEAKING TO YOU TODAY.>>MACFIE WOULD LIKE BUT YOU KNOW THAT WE SUPPORT SECTION 6 SUBDIVISION TO THE ADDITION OF 2 MORE TEACHER REPRESENTATIVES TO PALACE BE GIVEN THE ADDITIONAL WORK OF REVIEWING AND UPDATING ALL UNIT PROGRAM RULES. IT REALLY REQUIRES BOARD MEMBERS TO HAVE KNOWLEDGE OF THE INTENT OF THE IMPLICATION OF THOSE PROPOSED CHANGES AND TO BE ABLE TO SERVE IN THE SUBCOMMITTEE COMMITTEES THAT DEAL WITH THOSE UPDATES. WE SUPPORT SYSTEM 12 SUBDIVISION ONE BE TOLD ALL CANDIDATES; THE OPTION OF USING THE SCORCHING THE AT T P A SUPPORT GROUP PERFORMANCE ASSESSMENT TO MEET THE PARTICULAR THE ASSESSMENT HARD FOR LICENSURE ALL INITIAL LICENSURE CANDIDATES ARE REQUIRED TO COME CLETE THE AT T V A AND THAT OPTION COULD REALLY HELPS A CANDIDATE SOME TIME AND MONEY IN MEETING LICENSURE REQUIREMENTS IF THEY ARE MAYBE THE PORT PASSING SCORES. WE SUPPORT THE A ONE AMENDMENT TO REPEAL THE BASIC SKILLS TESTING PROVISION FROM THE STATUTE. I’M ALSO AN. THE GOVERNOR’S BILL THERE’S NO RESEARCH THAT SHOWS PASSING THOSE BASIC SKILLS TEST IN READING WRITING AND MATH IS A GOOD INDICATOR OF A TEACHER’S EFFECTIVENESS IN THE CLASSROOM AND AGAIN REMOVING THAT REQUIREMENT WOULD SAVE CANDIDATES TIME AND MONEY IN MEETING THEIR LICENSURE REQUIREMENTS. ADDITIONALLY MAC THEY WOULD LIKE TO SEE THIS STILL INCLUDE THE REMOVAL OF THE OPTION OF 3 YEARS OF SUCCESSFUL TEAR TO TEACHING AS A PATH TO OBTAIN A TIER 3 LICENSURE REQUIREMENT AS THIS NOW INCLUDED IN HOUSE FILE 3186 SECTION 3 SUBDIVISIONS TO HIM I’VE BEEN A CANDIDATE WHO’S BEEN TEACHING AT A TEAR TO LICENSE FOR 3 YEARS OR MORE WOULD BE ABLE TO APPLY FOR THEIR LICENSURE BY PORTFOLIO IF THEY CHOOSE NOT TO PURSUE LICENSURE A TEACHER PREPARATION PROGRAM AND ASKING OUR PROFESSIONAL EDUCATOR LICENSURE AND STANDARD SPORTS DID ISSUE A FULL PROFESSIONAL LICENSE. 2 CANDIDATES TO NOTHING TO DOCUMENT MASTERY OF THE STANDARDS EFFECT A PRACTICE FOR THE CONTENT KNOWLEDGE JUST MAKES NO SENSE. NO OTHER PROFESSION OFFERS A PATH TO FOR LICENSURE WITHOUT THAT HAITIAN OF BEATING WALES LICENSURE STANDARDS. THIS OPTION SHOULD NOT BE AVAILABLE TO THOSE WHO WORK WITH THEIR STUDENTS AND PARTICULARLY WHEN OTHER VIABLE PATH THAT THIS FOR THEM SO WEAK ASKED AT THIS TO HOSPITAL 35 E T.>>IS THERE ANYBODY ELSE IN THE AUDIENCE THAT WOULD LIKE TO TESTIFY. SEEING WE WILL OPEN IT UP TO THE FLOOR TO MEMBERS ARE THERE. WE REPRESENT ARE DULL HAS A QUESTION FOR. THE AUTHOR FOR AM OKAY; WHATEVER GO AHEAD.>>REPRESENTATIVE OR THANK YOU MADAM CHAIR AND DOCTOR BEEN CENTER FIRST. THE CHANGES REGARDING THE TEACHING PENDING A GMU IS STILL GOING TO TEACH THAT.>>OH HEAVENS. YES; YEAH; YEAH THAT THE THE TEACHER PERFORMANCE ASSESSMENT; THE EPA HAS A REALLY STRONG RESEARCH BACKGROUND THAT CANDIDATES WELL ON THAT PERFORMANCE ASSESSMENT. WILL PERFORM WELL IN THEIR FIRST YEARS OF TEACHING AND ACTUALLY IS THAT PERFORMANCE A TESTAMENT ASSESSMENT. THEY ARE SCORED ON THEIR ABILITY TO PLAN INSTRUCTION TO DELIVER THAT THEIR VIDEO TAPE AND THEN ASSESS STUDENT LEARNING BASED ON THAT AND IT’S ALSO FOR BIKE LANES FOURS AS PART OF THE SCALE FROM STANFORD. A MINNESOTA HAS THAT TELLS ME A SET OF PASSING FOR EACH INDIVIDUAL TASK WHICH IS ACTUALLY DIFFERENT FROM OTHER STATES THAT OUR COUNTRY THAT USE THE AT T V A AND I’M SO WE ARE WE’RE VERY CONFIDENT THAT IF CANDIDATES DO WELL ON THE ATV 8 WE HAVE CLEAR DOCUMENTATION THAT THEY WILL BE YOU KNOW SOUND CANDIDATES IN THE CLASSROOM AND THAT THOSE PEDAGOGICAL STANDARDS.>>REPRESENTATIVE THANK YOU MADAM CHAIR AND I THINK THAT’S IMPORTANT. I MEAN. CRITICISMS I’VE HAD IN THE PAST OF BEING MAYBE A LITTLE TO LOSE WITH THE BRINGING IN. ALTERNATIVE TEACHING PROGRAMS IS THAT MAYBE THEY KNOW THE CONTENT AREA BUT DON’T KNOW HOW TO TEACH EXACTLY AND SO I I DO THINK THAT THAT’S IMPORTANT. AND THIS I THINK I MAY BE A. MISTER LEWIS; THE V A. SO IF I SAID YOUR NAME WRONG. I STUTTERED. OKAY A FEW YEARS BACK. A TEACHER HERE ACTUALLY ONE OF. HIS PARENTS FOR MY CONSTITUENTS; HE WAS FROM MY DISTRICT AND SOMEBODY AROUND THE TABLE WILL REMEMBER THIS OTHERS CAME LATER ON AND THEN WON’T. BUT HE WAS A VERY FINE ART TEACHER. AND RECEIVED A THE TEACHER OF THE YEAR AWARD FOR MS. SCHOOL DISTRICT WHERE IS EXCELLENCE IN OUR TEACHING HOWEVER HE COULDN’T PASS THE READING TEST. DISABILITIES IT SIMPLY WOULD NOT ENABLE HIM TO DO SO AND SO. HE WAS EVENTUALLY LET GO FROM HIS POSITION THEY GAVE HIM ALL THE VARIANCE IS THEY COULDN’T HE WAS DONE. TEACHING THERE I THINK I HAVE NOT TALKED WITH HIM IN A LONG TIME HE MAY HAVE A. PART OF THE JOB AND IN EDUCATION; BUT I WANT TO KNOW. UNDER THE THE CHANGE IS HERE NOW WELL I’M NOT HAVING TOO. YOU PASS THE IT SKILLS IN READING WRITING WITH THIS AN IMPACT HIM SOMEONE LIKE THAT.>>MADAM CHAIR REPRESENTATIVE IT BY REMOVING THAT THAT INDIVIDUAL COULD BECOME A TEAR FOR TEACHER. REPRESENTIVE ERDAHL WELL IT.>>SO SOME OF THE BETTER NEWS I’VE HEARD FOR A WHILE AND THANK YOU APPRECIATE THAT. MEMBERS ANY OTHER QUESTIONS.>>ALL SEEING NONE CHAIR LET YOU KNOW A KEEN ANY CLOSING THOUGHT YES; THANK YOU.>>I’M EXCITED ABOUT THIS PATH AS A MOTHER OF IS IN THE MIDDLE OF A STUDENT TEACHING RIGHT NOW AT NORTH MIDDLE SCHOOL AND HAVING WATCHED HIM GO THROUGH ALL THE TESTING. I THINK IT’S AT A LOT OF THE CHANGES IN HERE; GOOD. HE STILL FEELS LIKE HE’S VERY PREPARED. IN THE CLASSROOM; THE UNIVERSITY OF MINNESOTA MORRIS DID A GOOD JOB. AND I MEAN I’VE BEEN USING HIM FOR INFORMATION FLOATING IDEAS SINCE HE SO NEW TO DOING THIS WHOLE ENTIRE PROCESS SO I THINK WE ALL SHARE THE GOAL OF HAVING LICENSE AND HIGHLY QUALIFIED TEACHERS IN OUR CLASS THROUGH AND THIS BILL WILL HELP HEALTH WE HAVE THE TOOLS TO MAKE SURE THAT THIS HAPPENS AND I ASK FOR YOUR SUPPORT AND THE GREEN AT THE MOTION TO MOVE HOUSE FELT 3580 AS AMENDED TO THE GOVERNMENT OPERATIONS AND ELECTIONS COMMITTEE.>>THANK YOU CHAIR YELL CAME THE CHERRY NEWS; A MOTION THAT HOUSE FILE 3580 AS AMENDED.

BECAUSE WE ALL BELIEVE THAT EVERY STUDENT’S MATTER THEIR RACE OR ZIP CODE SHOULD RECEIVE A WORLD CLASS EDUCATION. THAT IS TAUGHT BY CARING AND QUALIFIED EDUCATE AND IN A SAFE AND NURTURING SCHOOL ENVIRONMENT. AN IMPORTANT PART OF THIS IS MAKING SURE WE END DISCIPLINE DISPARITIES BEGINNING WITH OUR YOUNGEST LEARNERS THAT’S WHY I’M ADVOCATING TO PROHIBIT THE DISMISSAL OF STUDENTS IN OUR SCHOOL BASED PRE KINDERGARTEN PROGRAMS LIKE VOLUNTARY PRE KINDERGARTEN. SOMETHING ELSE I BELIEVE MANY OF YOU EVER HEARD ME TALK ABOUT IT IS OUR WORK TO END HIGH SCHOOL DROPOUT WHILE RAISING THE FOUR-YEAR GRADUATION RATE AND MAKING SURE A DIPLOMA MEANS A STUDENT IS READY FOR WHAT’S NEXT CAREER COLLEGE AND COMMUNITY. ONE OF THE STUDENT GROUPS THAT DISRUPT FORTUNATELY HAS STUDENTS WHO DROP OUT OUR STUDENTS EXPERIENCING HOMELESSNESS AND HOUSING INSTABILITY. IF WE TRULY BELIEVE THAT EDUCATION CAN BE THE GREAT EQUALIZER AND I THINK WE’RE IN THIS ROOM BECAUSE WE BELIEVE THAT. THEN WE NEED TO BE DOING MORE TO HELP THOSE STUDENTS FIND THEIR OWN SUCCESS. THAT’S WHY I WANT TO ESTABLISH CREDIT STANDARDS FOR CREDIT A CRUEL AND RECOVERY FOR STUDENTS EXPERIENCING HOUSING INSTABILITY OR HOMELESSNESS SO MORE AND MORE OF THOSE STUDENTS CAN REACH THEIR GRADUATION FINISH LINE AND THAT WILL OPEN UP MORE OF LIFE’S OPTIONS. THESE ARE JUST A HANDFUL OF THE POLICIES WE HAVE BROUGHT FORWARD THIS YEAR TO SUPPORT OUR STUDENTS AND WITH ME TODAY; A NUMBER OF MY OUTSTANDING COLLEAGUES FROM THE MINNESOTA DEPARTMENT OF EDUCATION TO PRESENT ADDITIONAL HIGHLIGHTS OF OUR BILL. THEY INCLUDED PAULSON DIRECTOR OF ACADEMIC STANDARDS WHO ARE PRESENT UPDATES TO STANDARDS REQUIREMENTS TO MAKE SURE ALL STUDENTS HAVE A WORLD CLASS EDUCATION. DOCTOR JANE HEART STENT DIRECTOR OF INDIAN EDUCATION WILL PRESENT POLICIES TO CENTER ARE AMERICAN INDIAN STUDENTS. KAITLIN SNIDER DEPUTY DIRECTOR OF GOVERNMENT RELATIONS WILL PRESENT LICENSURE CHANGES TO MAKE SURE ALL STUDENTS HAVE ACCESS TO CARING AND QUALIFIED EDUCATORS. MARY KAY CANNOT GO LET’S COUNT DIRECTOR OF COMPLIANCE WILL PRESENT RECOMMENDATIONS ON NON EXCLUSIONARY DISCIPLINARY POLICIES AND PRACTICES BECAUSE OUR STUDENTS CAN’T GET A WORLD CLASS EDUCATION; IF THEY AREN’T IN OUR CLASSROOMS. DIRECTOR OF SCHOOL SUPPORT WILL PRESENT A NUMBER OF RECORD THE NATION’S RELATING TO CULTURAL RESPONSIVENESS AND SAFE AND WELCOMING SCHOOLS. AND JAY THANK YOU FOR THE TIME TO BE HERE TODAY THANK YOU REPRESENTATIVE; THANK YOU COMMISSIONER.>>I THINK NEXT ON OUR LIST WE WILL ASK DOUG PAULSON DIRECTOR OF ACADEMIC STANDARDS TO COME TO THE. TESTIFYING TABLE AFTER DARK AND THE WE’LL ASK DOCTOR JING HAAR SAID TO TESTIFY AND KATE SNYDER AFTER THAT. I’M MARY KAY. DIRECTOR OF THAT AFTER HER AND GRADE KEITH DIRECTOR OF SCHOOL SUPPORT AFTER THAT SO IF YOU WOULD LIKE STATE YOUR NAME AND YOU CAN BEGIN YOUR TESTIMONY PLACE. THANK YOU MADAM CHAIR AND COMMITTEE.>>MY NAME IS THAT PAULSON I SERVE AS A DIRECTOR BACK IN EXTEND RTD’S AT THE MINNESOTA APARTMENTS CATION I’VE BEEN ASKED TODAY TO TALK ABOUT THE LANGUAGE THAT WE’RE PROPOSING TO CLEAN UP IN CONSISTENCIES BETWEEN STATUTE. ONE 20 P TO ONE AND WON 20 BE TO YOU’RE GIVEN A HANDOUT. THAT. SO A TABLE THAT TO 4 DIFFERENT HOMES; THE FIRST COLUMN IS THAT THE SUBJECT MATTER BY WHICH WE HAVE ACADEMIC STANDARDS THAT HAVE BEEN IDENTIFIED SECOND COLUMN IS THE STANDARD REQUIREMENTS FROM ONE 20 BE POINT O 2 ONE THEIR COLUMN IS THE CREDIT REQUIREMENTS FROM ONE 20 TO 4. AND THEN THE FINAL COLUMN IS WHERE WE SAW IN CONSISTENCIES THAT WE BRING IN PORT TODAY. THE FOUNDATION OF THE WORK THAT WE LOOK AT HERE IS REALLY SET IN WHEN 20 P O 2; WHICH WAS A COMMITMENT THAT SET BY THE LEGISLATURE TO ESTABLISH RIGOROUS CAREER AND COLLEGE READINESS ECONOMIC STANDARD FOR STUDENTS AND REQUIRING THAT STUDENTS DEMONSTRATE UNDERSTANDING OF THE ACA NICK STANDARDS THROUGH THE SATISFACTORY COMPLETION OF THE CREDIT REQUIREMENTS. IT IS THE ALIGNMENT THAT OVER THE YEARS AS WE HAVE AS ADDITIONAL STATUTES AS WELL AS WE’VE GONE THROUGH THE RULEMAKING PROCESS WITH MDE AND STAKEHOLDERS THAT WE’VE HAD SOME INCONSISTENCY IS THAT HELP DEVELOP BUT OVER TIME BETWEEN THE STATUTES. INCONSISTENCY HAVE BEEN BROUGHT TO OUR THROUGH MANY CORRESPONDENTS FROM SCHOOL COUNSELORS SCHOOL ADMINISTRATORS AND PARENTS WHO ARE LOOKING TO THE TICKET GUIDANCE FROM THE DEPARTMENT ON WHAT IS NEEDED FOR GRADUATION BETWEEN THE CREDITS REQUIRED STANDARDS OR BOTH. EVEN CONSISTENCIES WE’VE ALSO FOUND THROUGH A NUMBER OF THE SURVEY AND OTHER FEEDBACK TOOLS THAT WE’VE HAD AS WE’VE UNDERGONE OUR STANDARDS ARE EDITION OF THE LAST SEVERAL YEARS AND PHYSICAL EDUCATION FINE ARTS SCIENCE; ENGLISH LANGUAGE ARTS AND AS WE MOVE INTO OUR SOCIAL STUDIES; A REVIEW FOR NEXT YEAR. AGAIN I WANT TO IDENTIFY THAT THROUGH THIS THIS IS NOT LOOKING AT A POLICY CHANGE RATHER SIT TECHNICAL CHANGE TO A LINE. THE ONE 20 TO ONE WITH ONE 20 BE TO 4. THIS IS NO CHANGE OF POLICY AND REQUIREMENTS OF FLEXIBILITY AND WILL CONTINUE ON THAT COMMITMENT THAT ALL STUDENTS HAVE THE RIGOROUS EDUCATION. SO FIRST WOULD LIKE TO HIGHLIGHT ON DOCUMENT IS THE FINE THIS IS A LOCATION WE HAVE CHANGES THAT WE ARE PROPOSING BOTH OF WHICH HAVE COME UP THROUGH THE CONVERSATIONS 4 ARES OUR STANDARDS. THROUGHOUT OUR STANDARD REVIEW WE HEARD FROM EDUCATORS THAT THERE IS STRONG SUPPORT FOR US TO START THAT PROCESS UTILIZING THE NATIONAL CORE ARTS STANDARDS AS IN ADDITION TO THE MINNESOTA STATE STANDARDS. THE NATIONAL COURT STANDARDS WITH A SECOND DOCUMENT THE DISTRICT USED TO REALLY GUIDE FOR FOR THAT WORK. THROUGHOUT THIS PROCESS THAT DISTRICTS WERE LOOKING FOR MORE SUPPORT AROUND IMPLEMENTATION UP OF THE UH THE STANDARDS AND THAT WAS THE NUMBER ONE THING THAT THEY WERE REALLY LOOKING FOR AS WE ROLL THE STANDARDS OUT. SO THIS PROPOSAL REALLY ALIGNS WITH SOME OF THE COMMENTS WE RECEIVED AND ALIGNS ART WITH THE OTHER CORE ACADEMIC AREAS BY HAVING THE STATE REQUIRED STANDARDS AND AND MOVING BE IT THE THE LOCAL STANDARDS WHICH WE HAVE. LOOKED AND NOT FUNNY A DISTRICT THAT HELP BILLY. HAVE DEVELOPED THEIR OWN LOCAL STANDARDS. AS CAN BEEN SEEN BY NUMBER OF LETTERS OF SUPPORT WE RECEIVED FROM THE PURPOSE CENTER FOR ARTS EDUCATION. THE MINNESOTA CITIZENS FOR THE ARTS; THE MINNESOTA MUSIC; EDUCATORS ASSOCIATION THE DANCE EDUCATOR COALITION OF MINNESOTA AND ARTS EDUCATORS OF MINNESOTA; THE ARTS COMMITS COMMUNITIES SEE THIS REALLY AS A POSITIVE DIRECTION FOR THE WORK IN SUPPORTING; TEACHERS AND LEARNING FOR STUDENTS AS THEY’RE ABLE TO FOCUS AROUND SUPPORT FOR THE STANDARDS WE ARE EXCITED ABOUT THESE PARTNERSHIPS WITH THE PROFESSIONAL INNOVATIONS THAT IS A COMPREHENSIVE SUPPORT NETWORK FOCUSED ON THE STATE STANDARDS AND CAN PROVIDE MAXIMUM SUPPORT WELL STILL GIVING DISTRICTS FULL AUTONOMY AND FLEXIBILITY ON THE CURRICULUM AND INSTRUCTIONAL DELIVERY. WE ALSO ARE LOOKING AT WITHIN THE LANGUAGE. CONSISTENCY WITH THE K 8 ARTS AS WE HAVE WITH THE 9TH WELL ARTS A 9.12 ARTS. WE GIVE THE OPTION OF 5 DIFFERENT ARTS AREAS. IN THE ELEMENTARY HAMIDI ARTS WAS NOT INCLUDED IN IN THAT AND SO WE’RE PROPOSING TO AT THE MEDIA ARTS AS WE’VE HAD A NUMBER OF DISTRICTS THAT HAVE LOOKED TO THE MEDIA ARTS AS ONE OF THE OPPORTUNITIES THEY HAVE TO DELIVER A ARTS EDUCATION AT THE ELEMENTARY LEVEL. SO THESE ARE TECHNICAL CHANGES THAT REALLY SUPPORT THE WORK THAT’S BEEN BEEN DONE TO THE STANDARDS AND RAIL LINES A LOT OF SUPPORT NETWORKS THAT WE HAVE FOR FOR DISTRICTS. THE OTHER CHANGES ARE THROUGH ONE 20 P O 2 FOR I’LL START WITH A MATH MATH NEXT AT ONE OF THE THE EDITS THAT WERE LOOKING FOR WITHIN THIS THE MATHEMATICS LANGUAGE INDICATES AN ALGEBRA ONE CREDIT IS REQUIRED BY THE END OF 8TH GRADE. THIS DEMONSTRATES ALIGNMENT WITH THE STANDARDS WHICH ARE ALGEBRA BY 8TH GRADE THIS ENSURES THAT STUDENTS ARE WELL PREPARED HIGH SCHOOL. NUMEROUS DOCUMENTS OF RESEARCH HAVE IDENTIFIED THAT PER STUDENTS GOING INTO A STRONG STEM HIGH SCHOOL EXPERIENCE HAVING A STRONG. IT MADE A MATH EDUCATION IS IMPORTANT AND THAT’S WHY WE CALLED OUT THE THE ELDER TO ONE. THIS THE HIGH SCHOOL THOUGH WE HAVE HAD A NUMBER OF QUESTIONS THE OUT IF THIS. OUT FOR ONE IS A HIGH SCHOOL CREDIT. AT A HIGH SCHOOL THAT APPROXIMATE YEAR HALF ALGEBRA HAPPIER; GOOD PROBABILITY AND YOUR GEOMETRY THAT BUILDS FROM THE K 12 UPDATE FROM THE GREAT 8 ALGEBRA SINCE OUT FOR ONE OR 2 AND ONLY COURSE IS CALLED OUT IN STATUTE SUPPORT THE CLASSIFIED THAT HIGH SCHOOL THAT THAT OUT FOR ONE IS NOT A HIGH SCHOOL BEARING CRAIG; BUT IN THE PAST 3 YEARS. WE’VE HAD CONFUCIAN OF THIS WHICH CUT COSTS STUDENT AND UP TO COMPETE AT IN SEA LEVEL WHERE THE DEPARTMENT HAD REVIEW THE TRANSCRIPT TO ENSURE THAT THE ALL FOR ONE THAT WAS ON THE TRANSCRIPT WAS CONTENT AT THE HIGH SCHOOL LEVEL RATHER THAN THAT THEN THE THREAT LEVEL. THE NEXUS PUT IT BACK TO IDENTIFY WITH AND THAT’S THE STATUTE IS AROUND SCIENTISTS CONTINUE TO BE CONFUSION FOR DISTRICTS; A PRICKLY AS WE HAVE HAD THE REVISION OF OUR SCIENCE STANDARDS. IN IN THE STATUTE WE HAD THE TERM ELECTIVE AND THAT WAS PLACED IN THE STATUTE SEVERAL YEARS AGO. HIGHLIGHT THAT INCLUDES ALL STANDARDS THAT WERE NOT IN THE BIOLOGY OR CHEMISTRY OR PHYSICS COURSES. THEREFORE; THIS COURSE IS MADE UP OF THE REMAINING NATURE SCIENCE AND ENGINEERING PHYSICAL SCIENCE EARTH AND SPACE SCIENCE STANDARDS AND BENCHMARKS IT WAS NOT INTENDED TO BE A CUT OF ANY COURSE BUT RATHER THAT WHAT THE COURTS MADE UP OF ALL THOSE THOSE STANDARDS. THE STANDARD TRADITION COMMITTEE MADE UP OF K 12 EDUCATORS FROM THROUGHOUT THE STATE HIGHER EDUCATION FACULTY AND COMMITTEE MEMBERS IDENTIFIED THAT THERE WAS INCONSISTENCY WITH HOW THIS WAS BEING DELIVERED THROUGHOUT THE IS THE STATE AND ALSO GOT NUMBER A LOT OF FEEDBACK THAT THAT I THINK THAT THAT AT THEIR CREDIT WAS MORE THAN WHAT ONE CREDIT OF OF LEARNING REALLY SHOULD BE SO AS IT REVIEWED. FEEDBACK MORSE 2000 STAKEHOLDERS THEY MADE A DECISION THAT TO BE CRITICAL TRAIN. YOU TO HAVE A STRONGER HIGH SCHOOL EXPERIENCE EARTH AND SPACE SCIENCE AND ALSO FOUNDATION OF FISCAL SCIENCE LAB VARIANCE AT 8TH GRADE PREPARE THEM FOR THE HIGH SCHOOL STANDARDS. AS WE BY THE STANDARDS MOVING THE PREVIOUS FISCAL SCIENCE STANDARDS A HIGH SCHOOL REMOVED ITS GREAT ALLY AND IF THAT MATHEMATICS STANDARDS GIVING A STRONG COHESIVE EXPERIENCE AND IT’S ALLOWED US TO IT TO REMOVE THE PREVIOUS HOTCHPOTCH OF CONCEPTS OF HIGH SCHOOL TO PROVIDE A MORE COHESIVE CONTENT STORYLINE FOR STUDENTS HIGH SCHOOL LEVEL THAT’S FOCUSED AROUND EARTH AND SPACE SCIENCE. THE POST LANGUAGE DOES NOT CHANGE THE REQUIREMENTS STILL STUDENTS ARE STILL REQUIRED FOR 3 CREDITS THOSE 3 PETS MUST SATISFY ALL STANDARDS AND DISTRICTS MUST ENSURE THAT STUDENTS ACHIEVE ALL BENCHMARKS FOR THOSE STANDARDS. THIS IS SIMPLY TO CALL OUT WHAT THE STANDARDS ARE IN THE 3RD CREDIT. THE PROPOSAL IS SUPPORTED BY BOTH THE MINNESOTA SCIENCE TEACHERS ASSOCIATION AND THE MINUTES OF HER SCIENCE TEACHER ASSOCIATION HAS IDENTIFIED THEIR LETTERS FROM THE PRESIDENT. WE HAVE THE PROPOSAL THE POPE OF THE HIGHLIGHTS INCONSISTENCY BETWEEN THE REQUIRED THE EDUCATION STANDARDS THE LEGISLATURE DIRECTED IN 2016 FOR THE DEPARTMENT TO ADOPT THE 2014 SHAPE; AMERICA STANDARDS AND BENCHMARKS. WHEN REQUIRED THAT THE STANDARDS AND BENCHMARKS IT’S IMPORTANT THAT AT THE PRESENT STATUTE REALLY REINFORCE THE REQUIREMENTS FOR IT OR THE STANDARDS. AS INDICATED BY THE LETTER OF SUPPORT MINNESOTA SOCIETY OF HEALTH AND PHYSICAL EDUCATION EDUCATORS IN SHAPE IN 2015 61% OF MINUTES OF HIGH SCHOOLS; REQUIRED A FULL CREDIT. AS DISTRICTS HAVE TAKEN ON THE NEW STANDARDS AND LOOK TO IMPLEMENT THOSE. MINISTER LED ASSOCIATION AND UP TO SERVE 860 DISTRICTS AND IDENTIFY THAT 81% NOW REQUIRED ONE PREDATOR MORE. AS WE ARE LOOKING TO IMPLEMENT THE STANDARDS FULLY. THIS IS IMPORTANT TO BE ABLE TO CALL OUT AND SO WHILE THIS CHANGES THE ELECTIVE STANDARDS TO 6 IT’S NOT REALLY CHANGING PRACTICE. NOR THE REQUIREMENTS AND JUST BE MORE TRANSPARENT THAT ONE OF THOSE ELECTED CREDITS IS PHYSICAL EDUCATION. IT’S IMPORTANT TO NOTE THAT THESE ARE ALL TECHNICAL CHANGES ARE BEING PROPOSED TO TO CLEAR THE ALIGNMENT BE CLEAR ABOUT THE LINE BETWEEN ONE 20 P O 2 ONE AND ONE 20 P TO 4 AND IT’S REALLY TO CONTINUE THE COMMITMENT THAT WE HAVE FOR ALL STUDENTS TO BE TO GRADUATE BEING CAREER IN COLLEGE READY FOR THE RIGOROUS ACADEMIC STANDARDS IT’S IMPORTANT TO NOTE. THIS IS NOT CHANGE BUT STABILITY FOR DISTRICTS TO DETERMINE THE CURRICULUM WERE TEACHING METHODOLOGY. IT ALSO DOES NOT CHANGE THE FLEXIBILITY FOR CTE TO PROVIDE EDUCATION IN SCIENCE MATH OR THE ARTS THAT’S IMPORTANT TO BE ABLE TO HAVE THE CONNECTIONS AND INTEGRATIONS ACROSS THERE. MBE IN A EDUCATION PART THERE’S THE MINNESOTA SCIENCE TEACHERS ASSOCIATION; THE MINNESOTA EARTH AND SPACE SCIENCE TEACHERS ASSOCIATION; THE MINNESOTA COUNCIL TEACH THE MATHEMATICS MEN SHAPE THE MINUTES OF MUSIC; EDUCATORS ASSOCIATION DANCE EDUCATOR COALITION; MINNESOTA; AND THE ARTS EDGE EDUCATORS; MINNESOTA AS WELL AS OTHER STATE AGENCIES PURPOSE CENTER FOR ARTS EDUCATION ARE COMMITTED TO SUPPORTING TEACHERS DISTRICTS AND STUDENTS TO ENSURE THAT ALL THE LEARNING IT’S EQUITABLE TO AJ AS THEY GRADUATE FROM HIGH SCHOOL THEY HAVE MET THE HIGH ACADEMIC EXPECTATIONS. THANK YOU.>>THANK YOU MISTER NEXT WE HAVE. DOCTOR JANE HART SAID FROM DIRECTOR OF INDIAN EDUCATION. WOULD YOU PLEASE STATE YOUR NAME AND BEGIN YOUR TESTIMONY.>>THANK YOU MADAM CHAIR AND DOCTOR JANE CARSON; I WORK WITH AND SERVE AT THE MINNESOTA DEPARTMENT OF EDUCATION AS THE DIRECTOR OF AN EDUCATION AND THE TRIBAL LIAISON TO MINNESOTA’S 11 TRIBES. THANK YOU FOR THIS OPPORTUNITY TO HELP AMERICAN INDIAN STUDENTS REACH THEIR FULL POTENTIAL WITHIN THEIR SCHOOL COMMUNITIES TO MEANINGFUL EQUITABLE AND TARGETED EDUCATIONAL EXPERIENCES THAT AFFIRMS AND VALUES THAT UNIQUE CULTURAL IDENTITIES. I AM WORKING FROM THE GOVERNOR’S POLICY BILL HIGHLIGHTS PAGE. THIS CIVIC TITANS I’D LIKE TO HIGHLIGHT 2 DAYS. THE FIRST STUDENTS BEING ABLE TO WEAR EAGLE FEATHERS AND TRIBAL REGALIA AT GRADUATION CEREMONIES. EACH YEAR; THE OFFICE OF IT AND GET IT DONE AND THE DEPARTMENT OF EDUCATION RECEIVED NO CALLS FROM PARENTS IN TEARS; IT’S WHO STUDENTS ARE NOT ABLE TO WEAR THEIR REGALIA OR AN EAGLE FEATHER AT GRADUATION AND AN EAGLE FEATHER IS A HIGH HONOR FOR STUDENTS TO RECEIVE STEVE AND IT MEANS THAT THEY HAVE OVERCOME A LOT BE ABLE TO ACCOMPLISH THE TASK OF GRADUATION AND SO WE’D LIKE TO. THEY’RE ABLE TO DO THAT FROM NOW FORWARD AND. THE SECOND PIECE I’D LIKE TO HIGHLIGHT IS THE. STATE COUNT OF AMERICAN INDIAN STUDENTS AND RECENT YEARS. A NEW FEDERAL DEFINITIONS OF AMERICAN INDIAN HAVE HIDDEN ARE MASKED ARE AMERICAN INDIAN STUDENT COUNT. AND. IN MINNESOTA WE HAVE USED A STATE COUNT IN CALCULATING THE FORMULATION FOR AND IN EDUCATION AID AND WE LIKE TO CONTINUE TO USE THAT COUNT MOVING FORWARD SO THAT WE HAVE A MORE ACCURATE COUNT OF OUR AMERICAN INDIAN STUDENTS. FROM WHAT WE KNOW OF OUR DATA THE FEDERAL COUNT MASKS UP TO ONE 3RD OF OUR AMERICAN INDIAN STUDENTS FROM BEING REPORTED IN DATA AND WE’D LIKE TO CONTINUE USING THAT STATE COUNT TO MAKE SURE THAT WE ARE USING HAVING THE CORRECT DATA FOR PUBLIC FOR PARENTS. AND UNDERSTANDING THAT THE STATE COUNT IS MORE ACCURATE THAN THE FEDERAL COUNT THAT WE NEED TO USE AT THIS POINT.>>THANK YOU VERY MUCH DOCTOR HURST NEXT WE WOULD ASK HATE SNYDER TO JOIN US. PLEASE STATE YOUR NAME AND YOU MAY BEGIN YOUR TESTIMONY.>>THANK YOU MADAM CHAIR CAITLIN SNYDER; A RARE DOUBLE FIRST NAME WITH THE MINNESOTA DEPARTMENT OF EDUCATION AND I’M WORKING FROM THE SAME HAND OUT THAT DOCTOR HART SAID REFERENCED. UNDER THE LICENSURE IN BARGAINING UNIT CHANGES. A FOCUS OF THIS ADMINISTRATION COMMISSIONER RECURRING PARTICULARS UPLIFTING TEACHING AND LEARNING CONDITION; MAKING SURE THAT OUR TEACHERS HAVE THE TOOLS THAT THEY NEED TO BE SUCCESSFUL IN THE CLASSROOM; SO THE PROPOSALS THAT WERE BRINGING FORWARD TO TODAY SHOULD BE FAIRLY FAMILIAR TO YOU I BELIEVE THEY WERE IN THE HOUSE ON THAT THIS BILL LAST YEAR. SO FIRST CHANGE WOULD ALLOW TEAR WHEN TEACHERS TO JOIN THE BARGAINING UNIT; THIS IS A VOLUNTARY DECISION THE PUBLIC EMPLOYEES CAN CHOOSE TO MAKE. AND IS LOCATED IN ARTICLE 3 SECTION 2. THE SECOND CHANGE WOULD BE REQUIRING PICK ARTICLE TRAINING TO BE A TEAR THROUGH YOUR CHAIR FOR TEACHERS AT THIS WOULD MEAN YOU EITHER TAKE A MINNESOTA TEACHER PROGRAM; ANOTHER STATE TEACHER PREP PROGRAM OR PROCEDURE LICENSURE BY A PORTFOLIO.>>THIS IS NOT>>INTENDED TO BE A SHIFT AWAY FROM TIER; ONE AND TIER 2 TEACHERS WE RECOGNIZE THERE’S A TEACHER SHORTAGE ACROSS THE STATE. BUT THIS IS ABOUT MAKING SURE THAT OUR TEACHERS THAT ARE CHOOSING A LIFETIME PROFESSION HAVE THE TOOLS THAT THEY NEED TO BE SUCCESSFUL. AND THIS ISN’T CHANGING THE MANUALS THAT ARE IN PLACE IN THE STATUE FOR TIER ONE TIER 2 TIER TEACHERS EXCUSE ME. THE 3RD CHANGES IN ARTICLE 3 SECTION THIS WAS REFERENCE IN THE PREVIOUS BILL AND IT WOULD REMOVE THE BASIC SKILLS TEST REQUIREMENT FOR ALL TEACHERS. WE STARTED A CONVERSATION INTERNALLY WITH THE HOUSE POSITION LAST YEAR WHICH ALLOWED ADMINISTRATORS TO WAIVE THE BASIC SKILLS TEST. BUT UPON CAN SING THE RATION IT SEEMS. UNWORKABLE IN THAT WE WOULD STILL REQUIRE TEACHERS PURSUE EXAM PAY FOR THE EXAM STRUGGLE FOR THE EXAM. AND NOT PEOPLE TO PASS AND PAY FOR IT OUT OF HAND BEFORE HAVING THIS REQUIREMENT WAIT SO THIS SEEMS TO BE BASED ON THE RESEARCH AVAILABLE TO US IN ABOUT HOW ITS PREDICTIVE OR NOT PREDICTIVE FOR AT THAT TO SEE A BETTER. PROPOSAL TO BRING FORWARD AT THIS TIME. THE 4TH CHANGES IN ARTICLE 3 SECTION IT WOULD ADD OUR EARLY CHILDHOOD FAMILY EDUCATION TEACHERS IN OUR ADULT BASIC EDUCATION; TEACHERS TO CONTINUING CONTACT PROTECTIONS AND THIS WAS ALSO LOCATED IN THE HOUSE ON THAT THIS BILL LAST YEAR. THANK IS SNYDER NEXT I’D ASK ME OKAY; TO JOIN US AT THE TESTIMONY TABLE.>>PLEASE STATE YOUR NAME FOR THE RECORD AND YOU MAY TESTIFY. THANK YOU MADAM CHAIR; MY NAME IS MARY KAY CAN A CALYPSO AND I’M THE DIRECTOR OF COMPLIANCE AND ASSISTANCE THAT THE MINNESOTA DEPARTMENT OF EDUCATION. THIS AFTERNOON. I’D LIKE TO PROVIDE SOME HIGHLIGHTS FROM ARTICLE 2 OF THE GOVERNOR’S EDUCATION POLICY BILL THAT PERTAIN DID NOT EXCLUSIONARY DISCIPLINARY POLICY AND PRACTICES THAT CAN FOLLOW ALONG WITH THOSE IN THE HIGHLIGHTS SECTION. THE PROPOSED PROVISIONS FOCUS ON PROACTIVE MEASURES TO ADDRESS PEOPLE BEHAVIOR IN A NON EXCLUSIONARY MANNER. THE COMMISSIONER TESTIFIED EARLIER REGARDING THE NEED TO END DISCIPLINE DISPARITIES AS PART OF MT EASE HAND HOT HAND OUT WITH THE HIGHLIGHT. WE’VE GROUP DEATH PROPOSED CHANGES AND ARE NOT EXCLUSIONARY POLICIES AND PRACTICES INTO 4 BULLETS AND OUT BRIEFLY HIGHLIGHT SOME OF THOSE CHANGES. UNDER THE FIRST BULLET KINDERGARTEN THROUGH 12 9 EXCLUSIONARY POLICIES AND PRACTICES WHICH ISN’T SET SECTION 7 OF THE BILL INCLUDES THE DEFINITION OF THAT TERM TO FOCUS ON ALTERNATIVES TO PEOPLE REMOVAL AND DISMISSAL. BUT NOT EXCLUSIONARY DEFINITION INCLUDES A NUMBER OF RESOURCES TO SCHOOL CAN USE TO INTERVENE REDIRECT AND SUPPORT A PEOPLE’S BEHAVIOR. THE BILL ALSO INCLUDES A DEFINITION OF PEOPLE WITHDRAWAL AGREEMENT; THOSE ARE USED TO AVOID EXPULSION OR EXCLUSION. AND THEY’VE BEEN HAPPENING FOR SOME TIME; BUT WE HAVE THAT DATA IS NOT COLLECTED AND ITS STUDENT SOME STUDENTS RECEIVE SERVICES DURING THAT PERIOD AND SOME DO NOT SO THIS IS A WAY TO HAVE A DEFINITION AND TO ENSURE THAT THERE IS REPORTING THAT THOSE STUDENTS ARE RECEIVING SERVICES DURING THAT DISMISSAL PERIOD. THE 3RD SECTION MINUTE MINIMUM EDUCATIONAL SERVICES ENSURES THAT DURING THE PERIOD OF THE SCHOOL DISMISSAL PEOPLES ARE GIVEN THE OPPORTUNITY TO COMPLETE THE WORK THEY MISS AND RECEIVE FULL CREDIT FOR THEIR WORK. THAT’S IN SECTION 12 OF THE BILL. THERE’S ALSO THE ADDITION OF THE DEFINITION OF IN-SCHOOL SUSPENSION WHICH IS OCCURRING IN OUR SCHOOLS BUT WE DON’T HAVE A STATUTORY DEFINITION AND A REVISION TO THE DEFINITION OF OUT OF SCHOOL SET SUSPENSION WHICH IS IN SECTION 6 OF THE BILL. THE 4TH BULLET ADDS A NEW STATUE TO THE PEOPLE FAIR DISMISSAL ACT ENTITLED FULL AND EQUITABLE PARTICIPATION IN PRESCHOOL AND PRE KINDERGARTEN. NATIONAL DATA COLLECTED SINCE 2005 HAS DOCUMENTED THAT CHILDREN IN SCHOOL BASE PRESCHOOL PROGRAMS ARE SUSPENDED AT HIGHER RATES THAN SCHOOL AGE CHILDREN FROM THE CIVIL RIGHTS DATA COLLECTION 1112 1314 DOCUMENT THAT BLACK CHILDREN IN PUBLIC PRESCHOOL PROGRAMS ARE SUSPENDED FROM THOSE PROGRAMS AT A HIGHER RATE THAN WHITE CHILDREN. RECOGNIZING THE IMPORTANCE OF EARLY EDUCATION AND THE NEED TO AND DISCIPLINARY DISPARITIES THE PROPOSED LANGUAGE INCLUDES THE FOLLOWING DISTRICTS AND CHARTER SCHOOLS MUST USE NON EXCLUSIONARY DISCIPLINE AS DESCRIBED IN THE STATUTE; RATHER THAN DISCIPLINARY DISMISSALS TO ENSURE FULL IN AN EQUITABLE PARTICIPATION FOR CHILDREN ATTENDING THOSE PUBLIC PRESCHOOL PROGRAMS. THANK YOU. THANK MISS CANNOT IN ANGOLA TO THANK YOU MATT. NEXT WE’RE GOING TO BRING WE HAVE ONE TESTIFY ARE MR. KEY PLACE. DIRECTOR OF SCHOOL SUPPORT. IF YOU WOULD LIKE TO IDENTIFY YOURSELF FOR THE RECORD AND THEN YOU MAY BEGIN YOUR TESTIMONY; THANK YOU MADAM CHAIR; GREG KEITH I’M THE DIRECTOR OF SCHOOL SUPPORT AT THE MINNESOTA DEPARTMENT OF EDUCATION.>>AND TODAY IS MY BIRTHDAY.>>HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO YOU. I AM HERE TO TALK THROUGH A FOR PROPOSALS IN THE IN THE BILL FOR AROUND CULTURALLY RESPONSIVE PRACTICES IN SCHOOLS AND DISTRICTS. FIRST OF ALL I’M JUST GOING TO PER SECOND WHY DO WE NEED CULTURALLY RESPONSIVE PRACTICES. I THINK WE’D ALL AGREE THAT THE SOCIAL AND CULTURAL CONTEXTS CONTEXTS UP TODAY SCHOOLS ARE DIVERSE IN WAYS; INCREASINGLY DIVERSE IN WAYS THAT REQUIRE GREATER ATTENTION TO THE EDUCATIONAL PLUS PEACE BACKGROUNDS AND PERSPECTIVES. SCHOOL LEADERS AND TEACHERS; CULTURAL AND RACIAL IDENTITY SUB STUDENTS AND THOSE WHO SERVE THEM HAVE LONG CONTINUED TO REPRESENT A DEMOCRATIC DIVIDE. AND WHEN STUDENTS EXPERIENCE IN INCOME HAD A BULLET IN COMPATIBILITY WHEN THEIR SCHOOL AND HOME CULTURES THAT IMPACTS THE SCHOOL EXPERIENCE AND THEY’RE CHEAP. CULTURALLY RESPONSIVE PRACTICES REQUIRES THAT INDIVIDUALS TO CULTURALLY COMPETENT. THIS COMPETENCY IS HAVING AN AWARENESS OF YOUR OWN CULTURAL IDENTITY; YOUR VIEWS ABOUT DIFFERENCES BETWEEN P BOTH AND THE ABILITY TO LEARN AND BUILD ON THE VARYING CULTURAL AND COMMUNITY NORMS STUDENTS. THEIR FAMILIES AND THEIR COMMUNITIES. IT IS THE ABILITY TO UNDERSTAND THE WITHIN GROUP DIFFERENCES THAT MAKE EACH STUDENT UNIQUE. WHILE CELEBRATING THE BETWEEN GROUP VARIATIONS THAT MAKE OUR WORLD A TAPESTRY. WE’RE PROPOSING FOR CHANGES TO STATUTES SPORT CULTURE. THE RESPONSE OF PRACTICES IN SCHOOLS AND DISTRICTS. AND ARTICLE ONE WE’RE PROPOSING TO CHANGE ONE 2048 6; 1; WHICH IS THE ACHIEVEMENT IMMIGRATION PROGRAM SPECIFY ADDITIONAL OPTIONAL ACTIVITIES THAT ARE ALLOWABLE IN AI PROGRAMS. ALL OF THESE ACTIVITIES ARE CURRENTLY ALLOWED IN THE PREVIOUS LAW; BUT WE BELIEVED BY CODIFYING THEM IN STATUTE. WE’RE TAKING A MORE PROACTIVE STANCE IN SUPPORT. OF CULTURALLY RESPONSIVE PRACTICES IN OUR ACHIEVEMENT IMMIGRATION PROGRAMS. WE’RE PROPOSING TO CHANGE ONE 20 THE 11 WHICH IS THE WORLD SPORT FORCE LEGISLATION TO REQUIRE THAT DISTRICT PLANS INC BUT A COUPLE OF MORE ELEMENTS AROUND CULTURALLY RESPONSIVE WORKPLACES AND CULTURALLY RESPONSIVE PRACTICES. FIRST OF ALL WE WOULD LIKE TO REQUIRE THAT ITS STUDENTS MULTI CULTURES ARE REPRESENTED IN CURRICULUM AND INSTRUCTIONAL PRESS SAYS SECONDLY; WE’D LIKE TO INCREASE ACCESS TO EXCELLENT AND THE FIRST TEACHERS AND THEN SECOND. FINALLY THAT ALL STUDENTS AND EDUCATORS PARTICIPATE IN WORKPLACES AND LEARNING ENVIRONMENTS THAT ARE CULTURALLY RESPONSIVE. WE’RE PROPOSING IN ARTICLE 3. EXCUSE ME I DON’T HAVE THE OTHER ARTICLE HERE MY APOLOGIES. WE’RE PROPOSING TO CHANGE ONE 23 BE 1; 4; 7; WHICH IS THE PRINCIPAL EVALUATION STATUTE. AND ONE 22 A 40 WHICH THE TEACHER EVALUATION STATUTE TO REQUIRE THE CULTURALLY RESPONSIVE PRACTICES BE THE EXPECTATION FOR CULTURALLY RESPONSIVE PRACTICES INCORPORATED INTO TEACHER AND PRINCIPAL EVALUATION ACTIVITIES; ANDREW PICKS.>>WELL THANK MISTER CAPE AND A HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO YOU. ALL RIGHT; WE HAVE A NUMBER OF TESTS TO FIRES AND I JUST LIKE TO REMIND THOSE TEST FIRES COMING UP YOU’VE GOT ABOUT 2 MINUTES EACH AND WE WILL BE TIMING YOU AND I’M IN THE NAME OF THE FIRST COUPLE AND THEN I WILL LIST YOU AS YOU GO SO WE WOULD LIKE TO FIRST HEAR FROM DOCTOR FRED NOLAN SECOND DOCTOR AS SHE AND PITT UP HATTERS 3RD SARAH AND CHAN LEE. PLEASE STATE YOUR NAME AND YOU MAY BEGIN YOUR 2 MINUTE TESTIMONY.>>THANK YOU MADAM CHAIR; AND FRED KNOW LYNN THE EXECUTIVE DIRECTOR OF THE MINNESOTA RURAL EDUCATION ASSOCIATION I WANT TO FOCUS TODAY ON A SCIENCE SITE STANDARDS REQUIREMENTS; 8.1 4 TO 1; 8; AND THE MEMO TO THE AND THAT CHAIR WHICH IS THAT YOU MAY WANT TO PULL THIS OUT BECAUSE WE’RE EFFORTS OF MY TESTIMONIES FROM SPECIFIC LANGUAGE CHANGES. I RESPECT THE WORK OF THE SCIENCE STANDARDS COMMITTEE THEY’RE DEDICATED KNOWLEDGEABLE AND PASSIONATE ABOUT THEIR FIELD. BUT THEY MADE A SIGNIFICANT INCREASE IN THE 9.12 EARTH AND SPACE SCIENCE BENCHMARKS AT 70 TALE PAGES. I THINK THE COMMISSIONER RECORD FOR BEING TRANSPARENT ABOUT THIS CHANGE IN BRINGING FORTH A PROPOSAL. THE AD AND EARTH AND SPACE CREDIT BUT THIS ELIMINATES THE ELECTIVE CREDIT WHICH IS HOW IN ONE 20 BE TO 4 THEIR EGGS SCIENCE AND CTE CREDITS MAY FULFILL SCIENCE CREDIT. AS AS MISTER PAULSON REFERENCED WE SURVEYED A 10230 MEMBERS GOT A 160 RESPONSES IN 3 DAYS WHEN TV COUPLE NUMBERS TO JOT DOWN. 70 SCHOOLS NEARLY HALF ALLOWED CTE NAG CREDIT FOR SCIENCE CREDIT. IN THOSE SCHOOLS; 30% OF THE STUDENTS ARE TAKING THOSE COURSES. THEY’RE POPULAR COURSES OF FOOD CHEMISTRY ANIMAL SIDE; IT’S SINCE 2003 WHEN MINNESOTA ACADEMIC STANDARDS STARTED WE’VE LEARNED THAT NOT ALL CAREERS NEED A FOUR-YEAR DEGREE. THE FASTEST GROWING CAREERS ARE IN TECHNICAL FIELDS AND WE’VE BEEN ADOPTED THE WORLD’S BEST WORKFORCE WHICH IS TRYING TO LINE OR SCHOOLS TO WORKFORCE NEEDS. AG SCIENCE AND CTE COURSES DO THAT THEREFORE WE’RE WE OPPOSE THE LANGUAGE HAS PROPOSED HOWEVER I CAUTION THE COMMITTEE THAT GIVEN THE WORK OF THE SCIENCE STANDARDS COMMITTEE. WHICH HAS INCREASED THE SCIENCE STANDARDS WHICH WILL PRESUMABLY BECOME RULE. YOU CANNOT DO NOTHING AND LEAVE IT WAS IT IS 0.1 6. IN WINDY 0.1 6. IT CLEARLY SAYS UNDER CURRENT STATUTE REALLY READ THE STRIKEOUTS THE COMBINATION CREDITS UNDER THIS CAUSE MUST BE. SUFFICIENT TO SATISFY ALL THE ACADEMIC STANDARDS AND OTHER CHEMISTRY PHYSICS AND IF YOU LOOK AT 1.1 20 BE POINT OH 3 ALL SCHOOLS MUST OFFER AND STUDENTS MUST ACHIEVE ALL BENCHMARKS FOR ACADEMIC STANDARDS TO SUCCESSFULLY COMPLETE THE STATE THANK YOU.>>I’M SORRY DOCTOR NOLAN BUT YOU ARE OUT OF TIME AND I BELIEVE YOU ALL A LETTER AND INFORMATION FROM A MINNESOTA GIRL ASSOCIATION. NEXT WHO WOULD LIKE TO HEAR FROM DOCTOR NACE AM AWAY WITH JUST GIVE HIM HE’S GOT JUST ONE MORE. AND SO I’M SURE WE WILL DO THAT.>>SO THAT IS WHY WE RECOMMEND THE CHANGES THAT YOU SEE IN THE MEMO BECAUSE THEY DO ALLOW STUDENTS TO HAVE CHOICES TO MEET STANDARDS AT STANDARD LEVEL JUST NOT ALL STUDENTS ARE GOING TO GET ALL STANDARDS AND SO THEREFORE I’M WILLING TO WORK WITH THE CHAIR AND THANK YOU FOR YOUR TIME IN THE COMMITTEE; THANK YOU DOCTOR KNOW.>>ALL DOCTOR MISSION AND PATTERNS PLEASE. WELL NOT SEEN DOCTOR WE WILL GO ON TO SARAH SHANLEY AND THEN FROM THERE. AFTER HER DEAD HENTON AND THEN SCOTT CREW QUEST PLACE. I THINK THAT’S THE NAME OF THAT AND MEMBERS OF THE.>>COMMITTEE MY NAME IS SARAH SHANLEY AND I’M SPEAKING TO YOU ON BEHALF OF THE MINNESOTA ASSOCIATION FOR CAREER AND TECHNICAL ADMINISTRATORS BACK TO WHO REPRESENTS CTE ADMINISTRATORS FROM ACROSS THE STATE. AND THANK YOU VERY MUCH FOR YOU ALLOWING TIME TO TALK ABOUT THE CONCERNS MAC TO HAS WITH HOUSE FILE 31 TO SEX. ACT IS CONCERNED THAT THE LANGUAGE IN MINES 8.1 4 TO 8.1 SEX; SPECIFYING THE 3RD SIGNS CREDIT AS EARTH AND SCIENCE RATHER THAN ALLOWING IT TO BE AN ELECTIVE CREDIT. THIS SEEMINGLY SMALL PROVISION HAVE A NEGATIVE IMPACT AND CTE PROGRAMS THAT ALLOW MANY STUDENTS AND SCHOOL DISTRICTS. TOPPER SCIENCE CREDIT FOR PRACTICAL APPLICATIONS THAT ARE CTE COURSES. I SPECIFIED A SCIENCE DISCIPLINE THAT IS NOT ALIGNED TO CTE PROGRAMMING IT TAKES SIGNIFICANT OPPORTUNITIES AWAY FROM HUNDREDS OF OUR CTE STUDENTS. MAC TO IS STRONGLY OPPOSED TO ANY CHANGE IN TEARS BY CENTER. MOST SPECIFICALLY THE STRIKING OF LINES; 28.2 0 TO 28.2 3. BY LIMITING THE ABILITY FOR HERE TO TEACH OR TO MOVE TO TIER 3. THROUGH 3 YEARS OF SUCCESSFUL TEACHING EXPERIENCE. IT ELIMINATES PATHWAYS TO PERMANENT LICENSES FOR MANY CAREER AND TECHNICAL AREAS; ESPECIALLY RELATING TO CTE AND ALL OF OUR PATHWAY INSTRUCTORS FOR WHICH THERE ARE NO OTHER OPTIONS TO PERPETUAL TIER ONE AND PROVIDING 0 STABILITY TO TEACHERS AND PROGRAMS CTE IS ARI AT A CRITICAL SHORTAGE IN TEACHERS. NEARLY HALF OF OUR CTA TEACHERS FRONTIER; ONE HERE TO OUR SPECIAL PERMISSIONS LAST YEAR. THIS REMOVAL THIS ABSOLUTELY DEVASTATING TO OUR ROBUST AND GROWING CTE PROGRAMS ACROSS THE STATE. IT WOULD HAVE LAW AND LASTING NEGATIVE IMPACTS ON OUR STUDENTS AND ULTIMATELY IT’S THE WORKFORCE OF OURS. THANK YOU VERY MUCH.>>THANK YOU NEXT WE HAVE DONE HENTON. PLEASE STATE YOUR NAME AND YOU CAN BEGIN YOUR TESTIMONY. MADAM CHAIR MEMBERS OF THE COMMITTEE; MY NAME IS STEP HAMPTON I’M THE SUPERINTENDENT AT NORTH BRANCH AREA PUBLIC SCHOOLS AND ALSO THE PAST PRESIDENT OF THE MINNESOTA ASSOCIATION OF SAID SCHOOL ADMINISTRATORS AND I’M THE INCOMING EXECUTIVE DIRECTOR I WILL BE A MOVING INTO THAT POSITION WHEN GARY M ARE ALSO RETIRES AND I KNOW SOME OF YOU ARE FAMILIAR WITH GARY; SO YOU’LL BE SEEING MY FACE. I’M QUITE OFTEN PERHAPS AT THIS TABLE WE ARE VERY GRATEFUL FOR THE TIERED LACE A TEAR 10 TEACHER TENURE LAW. IT IS A LOT OF FLEXIBILITY; ESPECIALLY FOR SUBURBAN DISTRICTS; URBAN DISTRICTS; RURAL DISTRICTS REALLY ALL OF US THAT ARE STRUGGLING WITH FINDING TEACHERS AND REALLY HARD TO FILL AREAS AS WAS MENTIONED BY THE PREVIOUS TESTIFY OR. SOMETIMES WE HAVE OPENINGS FOR A LONG TIME THAT WE’RE NOT ABLE TO FILL AND WHEN WE FIND SOMEBODY THAT FITS THE BILL AND BUILT A RELATIONSHIP WITH KIDS AND THERE COLLEAGUES AND WE INVEST ALL OF OUR ECONOMIC RESOURCES INTO DEVELOPING THOSE TEACHERS. WE FIND A GREAT DEAL OF SUCCESS WITH THEM AND US WE ARE OPPOSED TO ANY LANGUAGE TEAMS. UNDER ARTICLE NUMBER 3 SUBDIVISION TO COURSEWORK MINDS; 28.2 0 TO 28.2 3 WHICH WOULD NO LONGER ALLOWED 3 YEARS OF SUCCESSFUL TEACHING EXPERIENCE UNDER TEAR TO LICENSURE FOR AN INDIVIDUAL TO MOVE ON TO A TEAR 3 LICENSURE THE ECONOMIC COST AGAIN WOULD BE GREAT AND THE RELATIONAL COST WOULD ALSO BE GREAT SOMETHING THAT NOT ALL PEOPLE THINK ABOUT IS TEACHERS DO SO MUCH MORE THAN JUST TEACH IN A CLASSROOM SETTING. OFTEN TIMES THEIR ADVISORS THEIR COACHES AND WE STRUGGLED TO FILL THOSE AREAS; I’M JUST LIKE WE DO IN THE CLASSROOM. SO WE’RE GRATEFUL FOR THIS TEACHER CHEERED LICENSURE LAW WE’D LIKE TO SEE THE PROVISION UNDER 28.2 0 28.2 3 REMAIN AND NOT BE STRICKEN. THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR THIS OPPORTUNITY TO SPEAK BEFORE YOU TODAY; THANK YOU MISS HENTON AND NEXT WE HAVE A MISTER CONQUEST.>>THANK YOU MADAM CHAIR AND MEMBERS OF MY NAME IS SCOTT FRANK WEST WITH THE ASSOCIATION OF METROPOLITAN SCHOOL DISTRICTS IN THANK YOU FOR THE OPPORTUNITY TO SHARE A FEW BRIEF COMMENTS ABOUT TRY NOT TO BE DUPLICATIVE. FIRST OF ALL WANTED SAID WE STRONGLY SUPPORT THE PROPOSALS TO AMEND THE WORLD THIS WORKFORCE AND IN ACHIEVEMENT IMMIGRATION LAWS TO INCLUDE CREATING SCHOOL ENVIRONMENTS THAT ARE CULTURALLY RESPONSIVE. INCLUSIVE AND RESPECTFUL FOR STUDENTS STAFF AND FAMILIES AND THIS IS VERY CONSISTENT WITH THE REMATCH IN MINNESOTA WORK THAT I THINK MANY OF YOU ARE FAMILIAR WITH THE MATTER. SCHOOL DISTRICTS ARE ENGAGED IN WERE LIKEWISE VERY SUPPORTIVE OF THE EFFORTS TO INCREASE THE PERCENTAGE OF TEACHERS OF COLOR; AN AMERICAN INDIAN TEACHERS. AND SO THAT IS THE SAME REASON THOUGH THAT WE’RE OPPOSED TO THE LIMIT IN THE PATHWAY SPECIFICALLY THE PATHWAY FROM TIER 2 TIER 3 IS. SUPERINTENDENT HADN’T JUST MENTIONED AND I ALSO WOULD ECHO ON THIS NOLAN’S COMMENTS ABOUT THE CONCERNS IN THE AREA THE SAINTS CREDIT AND SIMILARLY REQUIRING A FULL FAYAD THE FEEDBACK. I’M GETTING FROM OUR DISTRICT SAYS THAT WILL IN FACT REDUCE ELECTIVE OPPORTUNITIES FOR STUDENTS. I’M I’M HEARING THAT THEY ARE ABLE TO COVER THE FIAT STANDARDS RIGHT NOW IN LESS THAN ONE FULL CREDIT. SO PEOPLE STOP THEIR MADAME CHAIR MEMBERS THANK YOU VERY MUCH FOR YOUR TIME.>>THANK YOU SO MUCH I WOULD JUST LIKE TO REMIND FOLKS THAT UM WE DID ASK YOU TO KEEP AS BRIEF AS POSSIBLE BECAUSE WE ARE GOING TO BE LAYING THIS ON THE TABLE AND THERE WILL BE TIME FOR FURTHER DISCUSSION ON SOME OF THESE PROVISIONS AND WE HAVE JUST UNTIL 4 O’CLOCK TO DO A NUMBER MORE SPEAKERS. SO NEXT I’D LIKE TO CALL UP DANIEL SELLERS AND THEN WE’LL HAVE TERRY WILEY DENISE DIETRICH MARY GILBERT; DOWN 3 AND THEN ROGER AROUND SON.>>THAT AFTERNOON; MADAM CHAIR MEMBERS MY NAME IS DANIEL SELLERS WITH THE ALLIES. I ENCOURAGE YOU TO READ SOME OF THE WRITTEN TESTIMONY RECEIVED WHICH INCLUDES PRINCIPALS; TEACHERS AND ADVOCATES WHO ARE CONCERNED ABOUT THE PROPOSED CHANGES TO TEACHER LICENSURE ON PAGE 28 WHICH HAS BEEN REFERENCED; I’LL JUST QUICKLY SAY I HOPE YOU’LL READ I’M KRISTINE GARY’S TESTIMONY AND ASK YOURSELF WHY IN THE WORLD THAT WE WANT TEACHERS SUCH AS MISS GARRETT EAST TO JUMP THROUGH HOOPS JUST TO GET A PERMANENT TEACHING LICENSE. SHE’S ALREADY IN EFFECT OF EDUCATOR; SHE HAS A MASTER’S DEGREE IN EDUCATION CURRICULUM; SHE’S WORKED PROFESSIONALLY IN THE FIELD IN WHICH SHE’S TEACHING AND WE’RE GOING TO ASK TEACHERS LIKE HER TO GO BACK AND JUMP THROUGH ARBITRARY HOOPS LET’S NOT GO BACKWARDS LET’S STOP TRYING TO REENACT THESE BARRIERS AND LET’S WORK TOGETHER TO FIND MORE QUALIFIED DIVERSE TEACHERS THAT HELPED THEM GET PERMANENT LICENSE IS A MINNESOTA. THANK YOU VERY MUCH. THANK YOU MISTER SELLER.>>NEXT WE’LL HAVE TERRY WILEY. PLEASE STATE YOUR NAME AND YOU MAY BEGIN YOUR TESTIMONY. I AM TERRY RILEY AND I’M AT THE HEIGHTS ELEMENTARY COOL. I AM HERE AS A TEACHER; A PARENT AND ADVOCACY FELLOW FOR EDUCATORS FOR EXCELLENCE AND I’M HERE TO TALK ABOUT THE 2 ISSUES THAT ALIGN WITH THE PARTIES LEGISLATIVE AGENDA AND THE FIRST ISSUE IS A TEACHER LICENSURE AND THE SECOND IS IN AN EXCLUSIONARY DISCIPLINE POLICY PROPOSED CHANGE TO THE TEACHER BECAUSE LIKE MOST PEOPLE HAVE SAID IT SUPPORTS A PATHWAY FOR TO 2. FROM TIER 2 TIER 3 BASED ON POSITIVE EVALUATION AND WE SUPPORTIVE OF THE GOVERNOR’S LANGUAGE TO PROMOTE NOT EXCLUSIONARY. DIS IN THAT DISCIPLINE POLICY. I’M ONE OF THE THINGS THAT I’VE LEARNED AS AN EDUCATOR IS HOW IMPORTANT IT IS TO BUILD RELATIONSHIPS WITH STUDENTS. AND THAT IS ONE WAY THAT WE CAN WE CAN GET STUDENTS TO STAY IN CLASS YOU WANT STUDENTS TO ST. CLASS BUILDING RELATIONSHIPS IS JUST ONE WAY; ALTHOUGH THERE ARE MANY WAYS SUSPENDING CHILDREN IS NOT THE ANSWER THAT’S IT. THANK YOU VERY MUCH MISS DENISE DIETRICH PLEASE COME DOWN. STATE YOUR NAME AND YOU MEET ME IN YOUR TESTIMONY.>>THANK YOU MADAM CHAIR AND MEMBERS OF THE COMMITTEE FOR THE RECORD MY NAME IS DENISE TEACHER CAN I’M HERE ON BEHALF OF THE MINNESOTA SCHOOL BOARDS ASSOCIATION NSBA IS A STATEWIDE ORGANIZATION AND WE SERVE 333 SCHOOL BOARDS ACROSS THE STATE WE WANT TO THANK. COMMISSIONER RICKER FOR HER ACCESSIBILITY THIS SESSION IN THE AS WE HAVE PREPARED AND SHE PREPARED HOUSE PILE 3186 AND DUE TO THE LIMITED TIME TODAY WE HAVE PROVIDED A DETAILED LETTER TO THE COMMISSIONER IN RESPONSE TO THE BILL. SO BUT TO DATE FOR TODAY; I’D LIKE TO HIGHLIGHT JUST A FEW OF OUR CONCERNS IN ARTICLE ONE SECTION 3; 6 THAT WOULD ELIMINATE ELECTIVE CREDIT. CREDIT FOR HIGH SCHOOL STUDENTS. IT IS ELECTIVE HIGH SCHOOL CREDITS THAT ENGAGE STUDENTS AND IT ALLOWS THE INDIVIDUAL SCHOOL DISTRICTS TO MEET THE NEEDS OF INDIVIDUAL STUDENTS. AND IT ALSO HELPS SCHOOL BOARDS TO STRIVE TO PREPARE STUDENTS FOR COLLEGE AND CAREER READY YES; SO WE ARE OPPOSED ELIMINATING THAT A LEAD IF CREDIT IN ARTICLE 2 OF THE SCHOOL MEALS SECTION AND US HE HAS WORKED WITH LEGAL AID AND WE HAVE A MUTUALLY AGREED UPON LANGUAGE FOR THE SCHOOL LUNCH. PEACE AND SO THAT WILL BE HEARD ON FRIDAY AND WE HOPE THAT THE COMMISSIONER WILL SUPPORT THAT. ALSO IN ARTICLE 2 AND ARE SAFE AND SUPPORTIVE SCHOOLS PROGRAMMING MSP A IS CONCERNED WITH THE CHANGE FROM SCHOOLS ARE ENCOURAGED TO SEE SCHOOLS MUST LANGUAGE AND ALL 7 OF THOSE ITEMS SEEM SUBJECTIVE AND WOULD BE DIFFICULT TO IMPLEMENT IN MEASURE FOR EXAMPLE ITEM NUMBER 4. HOW DOES A DISTRICT TRAINS FOOD THIS STUDENT BYSTANDERS TO INTERVENE IN INCIDENTS OF PROHIBITED CONDUCT IS THERE ANY POTENTIAL LIABILITY TO THE DISTRICT’S IN CONCERN OF SCHOOL SAFETY. WELL WE TOTALLY SUPPORT SOCIAL EMOTIONAL LEARNING; WE WOULD LIKE TO CONTINUE WORKING WITH THE DEPARTMENT DONE SOME OF THAT LANGUAGE. ARTICLE 3 IT CONTINUES TO BE OUR POSITION THAT THE LEGISLATURE MAKE NO CHANGES TO THE TEAR LICENSURE SYSTEM AND IN ADDITION; IT IS OUR POSITION AT THE LOCAL SCHOOL BOARDS MAINTAIN THEIR FLEXIBILITY TO STAFF ABC AND D C S III PROGRAMS BASED ON THE NEEDS AND THE DEMANDS OF THE LOCAL COMMUNITY AND WITH THAT MADAM CHAIR; I WILL CONCLUDE MY COMMENTS THANK YOU THANK YOU TEST FIRE AN EX WE HAVE MARY GILBERT GORE TEAM.>>AND LAST WE WILL HAVE ROGER ARONSON PLEASE.>>THANK YOU MADAM CHAIR MEMBERS OF THE COMMITTEE ON MARRIED ALREADY FROM THE SAINT PAUL PUBLIC SCHOOLS BRIEFLY I’D LIKE TOUCH ON STANDARDS REVISIONS I URGE THE COMMITTEE TO REINSTATE THE STRICKEN LANGUAGE ON PAGE 4.1 9 WHICH ALLOWS UNDER THE ARTS STANDARDS THAT ALLOWED FOR LOCALLY DEVELOPED ACADEMIC STANDARDS THAT BUT WE WERE WE DON’T KNOW WHY IT WAS TAKEN OUT A RELATED TO THE SCIENCE STANDARDS WHILE IT MAY APPEAR TECHNICAL TO SOME FOLKS THERE ARE SOME REAL PRACTICAL INFLICT PATIENTS ABOUT TRYING TO IMPLEMENT THEM. RIGHT NOW AND IN OUR SCIENCE FOLKS THINK IT’S A WORTHY GOAL; BUT THAT THE TIME HORIZON IN PLACE IS JUST WAY TOO AGGRESSIVE RIGHT WE HAVE ONLY 9 OF 27 TEACHERS THAT WOULD HAVE THE APPROPRIATE LICENSE. IF THIS ONE IN PLACE; I’M AT THE TIME A LINE IN THE BILL AND IF FOR SCIENCE IS REQUIRED WE WOULD ONLY HAVE 2 OF 27 THAT WOULD. ELIGIBLE. SO SO TO GET THE CERTIFICATION OR THE CORRECT LICENSE. I MEAN THIS TAKES TIME MONEY AND WE WOULD HAVE TO TRY AND COME UP WITH HOW OUR TEACHERS ARE GOING TO GET MEET THE CHANGES AS FAR AS THE P E STANDARD GOES WE’RE HAVING A TERRIBLE TIME HIRING PAY TEACHERS RIGHT NOW WE FIRED SEVERAL TEAR ONE LICENSED TEACHERS AND THEY’RE STRUGGLING BECAUSE THEY HAVEN’T HAD THE TRAINING IT TOOK US ALL ALL ALL FALL TO TO REPLACE ONE OF OUR P TEACHERS THAT WE LOST AND I HAVE TO SAY THAT OF ALL THE COMPLAINTS WE GET FROM STUDENTS AND PARENTS AT HIGH SCHOOL. IT’S ABOUT WE HAVE REQUIRE HAVE CREDITED P RIGHT NOW AND I WOULD SAY WE HAVE THE MOST COMPLAINTS ABOUT THAT RIGHT NOW IT’S BUT SHE FOR STUDENTS WHO PARTICIPATE AND STUFF AND SPORTS. OUR STUDENTS WANTED TO SEE I ASKED ARE THEY WANT TO DO IS FINISH AND CHINESE THEY WANT TO DO RIGHT HERE. I B THEY WANT TO HAVE THE OPTION OF TAKING COURSE AD IN ALL EUROPE. HE I DON’T RECALL EVEN WITH THE STANDARDS CHANGE THAT WE EVER DISCUSSED HERE AT THE LEGISLATURE THAT IT WOULD GO FOR YEARS AS WELL. SO I WOULD URGE THE COMMUNITY TO SLOW DOWN ON THESE CHANGES AND THINK ABOUT WHAT THE PRACTICAL AND PATIENTS ARE FOR DISTRICT ACTUALLY TRYING TO IMPLEMENT SOME OF THESE THINGS POSSIBLY IT WOULD SUGGEST THAT IF WE LOOK AT STANDARD REVISIONS WE MAY BE LOOK AT WHAT A LOCAL IMPACT KNOW IT WOULD BE OR WHAT THE EFFECT WOULD BE ON DISTRICTS TO TRY AND IMPLEMENT THESE BECAUSE I KNOW WHEN TEACHERS COMMON AID TO THE STANDARDS THEY’RE VERY EXCITED ABOUT HAVING LOTS OF THEM AND I THINK SOMETIMES WE END UP WITH WAR AND WEEKEND I’M DOING A LOT OF TIME THAT WE HAVE DURING THE SCHOOL YEAR.
