On March 19 the House Education Appropriations Committee read HB 863. During this reading, Representative Spano stated that three amendments will be added. One of these amendments addresses FACTE member concerns regarding the proposed requirement that all supervisors of field experiences in which impact on K-12 student learning is evaluated must hold current teacher certification, This amendment was submitted to Representative Spano by the TLPIC. FACTE Executive Director Bob Shockley and Policy Committee Chair Gloria Pelaez were instrumental in this work.
The FACTE Spring 2013 Meeting will be held at the Four Points by Sheraton Hotel in downtown Tallahassee on Tuesday, March 19, followed by our annual Day on the Hill on Wednesday, March 20. Don’t miss this opportunity for the voice of teacher preparation to be heard by our legislative representatives!
