Senator Steve Cwodzinski Ushers Education Policy Bill to Passage in the Senate

Legislation Will Strengthen Schools and Support Students

ST. PAUL, Minn. — On Tuesday, Education Policy Committee Chair Senator Steve Cwodzinski (DFL-Eden Prairie) ushered to passage a bill (SF 3567) that will help Minnesota’s students achieve academic and personal growth and provide districts and educators with the resources they need to make Minnesota’s schools the best in the country. The omnibus education policy bill combines policy recommendations from the Minnesota Department of Education and legislation heard before the Education Policy Committee this session.

“This legislation builds upon the accomplishments of the 2023 session and continues our work of uplifting Minnesota schools to their greatest potential,” said Senator Cwodzinski. “With this bill, we are protecting students’ access to information by preventing book bans that seek to limit their imaginations and worldviews. We are making special education teachers’ jobs easier by reducing paperwork. We are maintaining our standards for educational excellence and helping kids learn healthy habits for lifelong wellbeing. It is a thoughtfully crafted, vital piece of legislation that will make our districts stronger for years to come. I am grateful to my colleagues for their support in our shared mission to make Minnesota the best state for students, teachers and families.”

SF 3567 passed 35-31 and will next be considered on the floor of the Minnesota House

Steve Cwodzinski represents District 49 in the southwest Twin Cities metro.
