Licensure Regulations for School Personnel [8 VAC 20 ‑ 23]
Action:
Amend the Licensure Regulations for School Personnel (8VAC20-23) to Include Instruction in Cultural Competency for Initial Licensure and Renewal of a License
 
General Information
Action Summary The Licensure Regulations for School Personnel set out licensure requirements for Virginia’s public school personnel. The 2021 Virginia General Assembly approved HB 1904 (Jenkins) and SB 1196 (Locke), which in part amends § 22.1-298.1 of the Code of Virginia. HB 1904 (Jenkins) and SB 1196 (Locke) were identical bills that support a cultural competent educator workforce in the Commonwealth. Specifically, this legislation requires that any person seeking initial licensure or renewal of a license shall complete instruction or training in cultural competency as prescribed by the Board. To reflect these changes, amendments to the Licensure Regulations for School Personnel (8VAC20-23-40) are required.
