(Has cleared the Administrative Procedures Act process without public comments)

 

Executive Summary

The Mississippi Critical Teacher Shortage Act of 1998 has established a special home loan program available to licensed teachers who render services in geographical areas of the state that are designated by the State Board of Education as having a critical shortage of teachers. The Department of Education will advertise for the purpose of contracting with one or more public or private entities to assist with the implementation and administration of the program. Therefore, the revision of the policy will provide a uniform process that will be utilized as guidance to the contracted entity and school districts.

In Accordance with Miss. Code Ann. § 37-159-11, the MDE must implement specific guidelines to ensure compliance with Housing Assisted Teacher (HAT) requirements.

Recommendation: Approval
