JUNEAU—Public school teachers might have to wait a couple years longer to acquire tenure rights if a bill proposed in the Alaska House is passed.

HB162, from Rep. Tammie Wilson, would require that teachers be employed in the same district continuously for five full school years or accept a teacher contract for six consecutive school years to be eligible for tenure.

Under current law, teachers who work for three continuous years or accept a contract for four consecutive years can get tenure.

The bill would not change the evaluation procedure nor would it alter the performance standards that must be met for determining whether a teacher can get tenure.

The bill was referred to the House Education Committee.
