Program and Unit Rules (R 4576)


Teacher preparation providers must meet the standards and requirements in Minnesota Rules, chapter 8705, to prepare candidates for teacher licensure in Minnesota. PELSB is initiating this rulemaking project to update these rules and make changes to reflect recent changes to state law.


PELSB is currently accepting comments on the proposed changes to the rules governing teacher preparation providers and programs. PELSB will accept comments until further notice is published in the State Register that PELSB intends to adopt rules.
