Eye on Legislation

Jean Hill, UPPAC attorney, writes in her monthly newsletter that the following legislation will be introduced:
  • Sen. Howard Stephenson- Wants more computer -adaptive testing
  • Rep. Rhonda Menlove- Wants provisional teachers to have five years before they get career status rather than three years.
  • Rep. Curtis Oda- Wants a resolution asking public schools to provide age-appropriate information about family and dating violence to students.
  • Rep. Wayne Harper- Legislation titled "Educator Training Amendments"???
  • Rep. John Dougall- Legislation titled "Local control of Public School schedules"???
  • Sen. Pat Jones- Legislation titled "Vending machines in elementary schools"???

Yes, it will be another interesting year. First day of the session, January 25th.
