HB 1621 -- Reciprocal Certification of Teachers from Other States

Sponsor:  Patek

This bill requires the State Board of Education to establish
reciprocal approval of teacher training institutions in other
states.  The bill adds provisions for applicants with a license
from another state to be issued a Missouri certificate that most
closely aligns with the certificate already held, based on the
applicant's recommendation by a state-approved or reciprocally--
approved teacher preparation program, completion of a background
check, and, if a national reciprocity system has been
recommended by the Missouri Advisory Council of Certification
for Educators and adopted by the State Board of Education,
recommendation by such system.  The bill deletes the requirement
for an out-of-state applicant to achieve the Missouri minimum
exit assessment score; currently, applicants who do not meet the
minimum receive a 2-year nonrenewable certificate.  The bill
also clarifies that out-of-state experience will be considered
in the issuance of a continuous professional certificate.
