HB1220: Support Increasing Teacher Diversity

House Bill 22-1220, which will remove barriers in educator preparation to support educator candidates entering the workforce, is scheduled to be heard by the House Education Committee on Wednesday, February 23. 

HB22-1220 will:  

  • support teacher candidates by paying them for their student teaching work 
  • remove financial barriers by paying for teacher exam fees 
  • expand pathways to licensure by allowing multiple ways to demonstrate competency  

We are proud to champion HB22-1220 because we see this policy as a pathway to increasing teacher diversity in Colorado. We know that removing financial barriers and increasing pathways to licensure will ensure a more diverse educator workforce, which is critical for all of Colorado’s students to experience just and supportive schools.
