knowledge is power.

Local teacher training capped to 150 hours every 5 years.

OKLAHOMA CITY – HB1441, authored by Assistant House Democratic Leader Melissa Provenzano, D-Tulsa, was signed into law by Governor Kevin Stitt.

The bill caps time spent on required federal, state and local teacher training to 150 hours every 5 years.

Rep. Provenzano said the legislation allows teachers more time for dedicated planning for their students.

“Our teachers have been asking for relief from what seems to be an ever-growing list of new training requirements, which take considerable time away from preparing for class,” Rep. Provenzano said. “Putting a cap on how much we add to their plates will begin to balance that load and reducing the frequency of repetitive trainings will eliminate unnecessary redundancy.”
