Today at the Capitol: Student Loan Forgiveness for Teachers

Today at the Capitol, we’re highlighting bills having to do with teachers and school districts.

The first would create incentives to bring teachers into the state and keep them through student loan forgiveness. 

After their first year of teaching — educators could receive various amounts of money to pay back their students loans. 

This bill gives different amounts of money based on different district needs.

The first is for critical need positions in nonrural or nonremote districts. 

Those teachers could get up to $,3000 for a maximum of four consecutive years.

The next would grant up to $4,500 for teachers in schools with enrollments fewer than one thousand students. Also for four consecutive years.

The largest amount of student loan forgiveness would go to critical need positions in schools with fewer than one thousand students.

Those teachers could get up to $6,500 for four consecutive years. 

There’s another bill banning convicted felons from becoming a school board member. 

It also subjects all potential school board members to a criminal background check.
