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.
- 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.
