A Bill That Would Expedite Teaching Licenses For Out-Of-State Military Spouses

first_imgState Rep. Wendy McNamara Dear Friend,The House of Representatives recently approved a bill I am authoring that would expedite teaching licenses for out-of-state military spouses whose husbands or wives are assigned to a station in Indiana.Members of the military are often required to move multiple times during their years of service, and by expediting the licensing process, military families coming here will be able to continue earning a living.The current law allows the State Board of Education to expedite the issuance, renewal or reinstatement of teaching licenses for military spouses, but does not require it, delaying the process for military spouses to acquire teaching jobs once they move to Indiana.My proposal would help military families who relocate to Indiana and includes several provisions to assist in that transition.House Bill 1396 now goes to the Senate for consideration Please contact me with questions or input by calling 317­-232­-9816or emailing [email protected], FacebookTwitterCopy LinkEmailSharelast_img read more
