The bill requires the department of education to create, maintain,

for educators; staff; school districts, district charter schools, institute
charter schools, boards of cooperative services, or approved facility
schools (local education providers); and educator preparation programs
(educator programs). The online portal must have:
  • Access to career incentives, stipends, and loan forgiveness;
  • Career pathway information for educators and staff,
including, but not limited to, mentoring, induction program
coaching, instructional coaching, district curriculum
support, special assignments for teachers, and principal
leadership; and
  • A job posting and application portal for local education
providers to post open employment positions and to search
for prospective candidates, and for educators and staff to
upload resumes and to apply to open employment positions.
Local education providers and educator programs shall post a link to the
online portal on their websites to promote the online portal to educators
and staff.
The bill allows Indian tribes and tribal organizations to access and
use the online portal.
Pursuant to current law, the educator and retention program (ERR
program) provides support to members of the armed forces and
nonmilitary-affiliated educator candidates. The bill expands criteria for
participation in the ERR program to include applicants who are:
  • Enrolled in a teacher degree apprenticeship program and
employed by an Indian tribe or tribal organization or a local
education provider; or
  • Enrolled in an educator program to attain a special services
provider license with the appropriate endorsement.
