State licensing board approves resolution, creates guidance for school districts
The Minnesota Professional Educator Licensing and Standards Board (PELSB) recently passed a resolution to suspend the enforcement of several requirements related to obtaining and holding an out-of-field permission (OFP) during the 2020-21 school year as set forth in Chapter 8710 based on school closures due to COVID-19. The resolution provides that:
- During the 2020-21 school year, in situations where there is not sufficient time to post an open position, PELSB will not enforce the requirement that the school district post a position for at least 15 days (for the first time the position is open) or at least 60 days (for renewal) prior to offering the position to a licensed teacher who would require an out-of-field permission (OFP).
- PELSB will not count OFPs used during the 2020-21 school year toward a teacher’s total allotted OFPs.
Also, PELSB has created a 2020-21 Guidance for School Districts and Charter
Schools Regarding Teacher Licensure and Permissions document to help districts and HR professionals navigate the changes for the upcoming school year. Visite https://mn.gov/pelsb/ Copyright © 2020 MSBA. All rights reserved.
