Additional science licensure with only a PRAXIS exam

posted on 3:15 PM, March 20, 2007
The Board of Teaching intends to adopt rules regarding science licensure without a public hearing unless 25 or more persons submit a written request for a hearing by April 25, 2007. If so, a public hearing will be held in Conference Center A, Room 14, Minnesota Department of Education, 1500 Highway 36 West, Roseville, Minnesota 55113, starting at 9:30a.m. on Tuesday, May 15, 2007. To find out whether the rules will be adopted without a hearing or if the hearing will be held, you should contact the agency contact person after April 25 and before May 15.

Subject of Rules:

The proposed rules are about allowing a teacher licensed in Chemistry, Physics, Life Science, or Earth and Space Science and who has taught science for at least three years to take the content knowledge test in another area of science licensure. Successful passage of such an exam would result in the issuance of a teaching license in that area.


You have until 4:30 p.m. on Wednesday, April 25, 2007, to submit written comment in support of or in opposition to the proposed rules or any part or subpart of the rules. Your comment must be in writing and received by the agency contact person by the due date. Comment is encouraged.
