Educator licensure - requirements for out-of state applicants. The act removes amendments House Bill 18-1095, concerning educator licenses issued to military spouses, made to the educator licensing statute regarding the number of years a military spouse licensed in another state must teach continuously in order to apply for a professional teacher license or professional special services license in Colorado.
House Bill 18-1130, concerning increasing the availability of qualified personnel who are licensed in another state to teach in public schools, amended statute to apply the same standards to all out-of-state applicants as apply to military spouses.
