BE IT ENACTED BY THE LEGISLATURE OF THE STATE OF MINNESOTA:

Section 1.

Minnesota Statutes 2014, section 122A.23, is amended by adding a
subdivision to read:


Subd. 3.

Interstate reciprocity agreement for teacher licensure.

Notwithstanding
other law to the contrary, the Board of Teaching must enter into National Association of
State Directors of Teacher Education and Certification (NASDTEC) interstate agreements
for teacher licensure to allow fully certified teachers from other states, identified by the
board, to transfer their certification to Minnesota and receive a full, five-year continuing
teaching license without having to complete any additional exams or other preparation
requirements. The board must enter into an interstate agreement only after determining
that the rigor of the teacher licensure or certification requirements in the other state are
commensurate with the rigor of Minnesota's teacher licensure requirements. The board
may limit an interstate agreement to particular content fields or grade levels based on
established priorities or identified shortages. A school board may hire a teacher subject to
an interstate agreement only if the board first advertises the teaching position according to
board hiring practices and no qualified candidate applies for the position. This subdivision
does not apply to out-of-state applicants holding only a provisional teaching license.

EFFECTIVE DATE.

This section is effective August 1, 2015.
