Senator Judy Seeberger Ushers Bill to Streamline Developmental Adapted Physical Education Evaluation

ST. PAUL, Minn. — On Wednesday, March 13th, the Senate Education Policy Committee heard Senate File 4212, a bill authored by Senator Judy Seeberger (DFL-Afton). The bill would allow school districts to conduct stand-alone assessments of developmental adapted physical education for students, reducing the burden of administrative paperwork for teachers.

After the hearing, Senator Seeberger released the following statement:

“My colleagues and I are incredibly thankful for all of Minnesota’s special education teachers. They sacrifice so much for the wellbeing of our family members, friends and neighbors. We owe it to them to make their jobs as easy as possible. This bill is just one piece of the puzzle, but it will help make sure special education teachers can spend less time in front of a computer screen doing administrative work, and more time in the classroom. I look forward to doing more work on this subject in the future.”

Senate File 4212 was laid over in committee for possible inclusion in an omnibus bill later in session.

Senator Judy Seeberger represents Senate District 41 which includes Afton, Cottage Grove, Hastings, and Lake Elmo. She is vice chair of the Commerce and Consumer Protection Committee, and serves on the Agriculture, Broadband, and Rural Development Committee as well as the Judiciary and Public Safety Committee.
