Senate Education Policy Bill Unveiled.  The Senate has released its strike-everything amendment to SF 1495, the Senate omnibus education policy bill.  There's a lot in it and there are some similarities to the House bill in the area of teacher licensure, especially for teachers licensed in other states and those seeking alternative paths to licensure.  There is also language in the special education article that makes the online reporting system passed as part of last year's omnibus bill optional for school districts and not mandatory beginning with the 2018-2019 school year.

Here is a link to the strike-everything amendment that will be discussed tomorrow in the Senate Education Policy Committee beginning at 8:30 AM.
