Training Sessions to be Held at Locations throughout Minnesota

The Minnesota Professional Educator Licensing and Standards Board (PELSB) is excited to announce it will be hosting a series of free cultural competency trainings throughout Minnesota beginning in May 2019.
In partnership with several individuals and groups, PELSB designed the training sessions to meet the new requirements specific to cultural competency needed to renew a Minnesota tiered teaching license. The trainings, which will consist of two four-hour sessions, will be led by trained facilitators at 10 locations throughout the Twin Cities metro area and greater Minnesota.
The benefits of completing a PELSB-approved cultural competency training include:
PELSB and its host partners are offering these sessions free of charge for Minnesota teachers. However, preference will be given to teachers who need to renew a Tier 1 license because the training is necessary for Tier 1 license renewals in 2019. Cultural competency training will be required for all teachers renewing a license in 2020 or after.
