Deans and Chairs
MN Statute 122A.092, Subdivision 5, paragraph (c), added by Laws 2019, First Special Session chapter 11, article 3, section 2, is effective June 1, 2020.
Each preparation provider must submit this template along with an updated syllabus or syllabi for each board-approved elementary education, early childhood education, special education, and reading program to PELSB on or before June 1, 2020. Depending on a provider's number of approved programs and how providers structure learning opportunities and assessments within and between programs, the total number of submission items will vary by provider. For providers that create shared learning opportunities and assessments (ex. one reading methods course that all ABS, early childhood education, and elementary education candidates take and no approved reading program), they may submit one template and one syllabus. For providers that embed the same learning opportunities and assessments to meet that statutory requirements into different courses with different syllabi, they may submit one template with the different syllabi. Note the only syllabi that need to be submitted are ones that demonstrate where this requirement is being "met." These updated syllabi will need to be uploaded in EPPAS for the provider's next PERCA submission.
IOwA Designation for Teacher Preparation Providers
PELSB is transitioning to a new login process to access secure educator website systems (e.g., EPPAS, Online Educator Licensing Systems). As part of this process, all teacher preparation providers will need to designate an Identified Official with Authority (IOwA), who can authorize user access to the secure systems.
Step-by-step instructions for the IOwA setup process are available online.
