SB 216 • Sen. Philip Boots Higher ed cost exemptions for veterans.
SB 338 • Sen. Eddie Melton Widens prekindergarten eligibility.
SB 362 • Sen. Jeff Raatz Would expand tax credits for teachers’ spending on supplies to $500 from $100.
SB 420 • Sen. Jeff Raatz Another tax credit program for donations to new entities, ICOs (similar to SGOs), for workforce training. Alarmingly, this bill would provide $14,000,000 in tax credits that would be going to nonaccountable, privately run entities. The ICOs can keep 10% for administrative costs; must distribute 75% of donations.
SB 434 • Sen. Dennis Kruse No accountability grades for alternative schools that serve more than 65% who are there by court order.
SB 438 • Sen. Andy Zay Teacher licensing; workplace specialist license.
SB 508 • Sen. Jeff Raatz Reduces and weakens suicide training requirements for teachers. Is misleadingly labeled “School employee training requirements.”
SB 532 • Sen. Jean Leising New teacher licensing exams.
