Senate of Pennsylvania
Session of 2015 - 2016 Regular Session


Posted: January 5, 2015 01:35 PM
From: Senator James R. Brewster
To: All Senate members
Subject: Teacher certification for charter schools
In the near future, I intend to reintroduce SB 1202 from last session. This legislation would require any individual who is newly hired as a teacher or on professional staff of a charter school be required to hold appropriate state certification.

Teachers who currently are employed by a charter school, yet do not have state teaching certification, are not required to obtain the certification in order to continue teaching at the charter school.

Currently, charters schools must have at least seventy-five percent of professional teacher staff certified. This measure would require all new teachers to be certified.

Thank you for your consideration.

Introduced as SB320
