The Utah State Board of Education Licensing Task Force is currently working on redesigning the educator licensing structure in Utah. The task force would like to thank all of the individuals that have previously provided feedback at stakeholder meetings. In order to gather feedback from as many individuals as possible a survey has been created regarding the currently proposed revisions.
We would like to invite you to participate in this survey by going to this link: https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/JQYNJ8M . A description of the current proposal is provided and there are 14 questions. The survey will close at 10:00 am on Monday, May 15. Please be aware that this survey focuses on general license structure. Feedback regarding license areas and endorsements will be collected at a later date.
