SB 1487 – Requires The Commission Of Teacher Credentialing And The State Department Of Education To Create A Survey To Collect Information Regarding Resignation, Non-Acceptance Of Teaching Assignment And Those Leaving The Profession
The Commission on Teacher Credentialing (Commission) establishes the minimum requirements for the issuance of a teaching credible, which requires the satisfactory completion of a program of an accredited professionally prepared program.
SB 1487 requires that no later than July 1, 2023, the Commission and the State Department of Education (Department) develop a survey to collect data from teachers in local educational agencies (LEA) who resign from their positions or elected not to accept a teaching assignment for the upcoming school year. The survey must also collect data on whether or not the teachers are exiting the profession.
The Commission and the Department shall gather input from stakeholders in developing the survey. The bill also requires the Commission and Department to prepare an annual report, submit the report to the Department and Legislature, and post the report on their website. The bill encourages but does not requires the LEA to share the results of the survey.
(SB 1487 add Section 44223 to the Education Code.)
