Synopsis As Introduced
Amends the Educator Licensure and Employment of Teachers Articles of the School Code. Provides that no one may be licensed to teach or supervise or be otherwise employed in the public schools of this State who is not at least 19 (instead of 20) years of age. Makes changes concerning a career and technical educator endorsement, a part-time provisional career and technical educator endorsement, and a provisional career and technical educator endorsement on an Educator License with Stipulations; the minimum requirements for educators trained in other states or countries; and Professional Educator License renewal. In provisions concerning the termination of contractual continued service by a teacher, provides that any teacher terminating service not in accordance with those provisions may be publicly reprimanded (rather than being guilty of unprofessional conduct and liable to suspension of licensure for a period not to exceed one year). Effective July 1, 2017.
