NASHVILLE (AP) – The State Board of Education gave a nod of approval for a proposal that could allow teachers who consistently score highly on annual state-mandated teacher evaluations to bypass training requirements to advance or to renew licenses.

The Tennessean reports the proposal is set for a final vote later this month.

The board also officially cut ties on Monday with a policy that would have allowed teacher licenses to be pulled due to poor student growth on tests.

That move came at the direction of lawmakers, who passed legislation during the last session to reverse the controversial initiative.
