    Senate Bill 1216 was voted on by the Senate Education Committee yesterday and passed 11-0. This bill gives the PA Secretary of Education authority to use discretion in granting temporary or permanent teaching certificates under certain circumstances. It would address the access to testing issues many recent graduates and renewing teachers are having due to the COVID 19 pandemic. The bill can be found here:  https://www.legis.state.pa.us/cfdocs/legis/PN/Public/btCheck.cfm?txtType=PDF&sessYr=2019&sessInd=0&billBody=S&billTyp=B&billNbr=1216&pn=1784

    Senate Bill 1216 was considered in the Senate Education Committee today. This bill would give the PA Secretary of Education (currently Pedro Rivera) the authority to utilize several options to issue temporary and permanent teaching certificates without every criteria being accomplished under certain circumstances. This is primarily in response to difficulty in accomplishing required testing due to COVID 19. The bill can be found here: https://www.legis.state.pa.us/cfdocs/legis/PN/Public/btCheck.cfm?txtType=PDF&sessYr=2019&sessInd=0&billBody=S&billTyp=B&billNbr=1216&pn=1784
