TeacherLicensingImage

The Minnesota Legislature passed a law during the 2017 session to replace the Minnesota Board of Teaching with the new Professional Educator Licensing and Standards Board.

The Office of the Minnesota Secretary of State is currently accepting applications for the Professional Educator Licensing and Standards Board.

Serving on this important board would be a great opportunity. MSBA encourages school board members to apply before July 10 for the open “public member” board seat.

The complete list of open seats includes:

  • One public member (which may be a school board member)
  • One superintendent
  • One school district human resources director
  • One administrator of a cooperative unit (who oversees a special education program)
  • One principal
  • Six teachers

See https://commissionsandappointments.sos.state.mn.us/Agency/Details/234 for application information.

Direct questions regarding the application process to Lori Rosenthal at 651-582-8739 or lori.rosenthal@state.mn.us.

For general questions about this new licensing board, contact MSBA’s Denise Dittrich (ddittrich@mnmsba.org) or Bill Kautt (bkautt@mnmsba.org).
