Summary as introduced:

Teacher licensure; Teach For America license. Creates a two-year provisional license for participants in Teach For America, a nationwide nonprofit organization focused on closing the achievement gaps among students in low-income areas, who meet certain criteria, including having an offer of employment from a school division in the Commonwealth. The Board of Education may extend each Teach For America license for one additional year and may issue each licensee a renewable license upon completion of two full years of teaching experience, satisfaction of all other requirements for such a license, achievement of satisfactory scores on all professional teacher assessments required by the Board, and achievement of satisfactory end-of-year evaluations.
