Representatives from your professional organizations and their
lobbyists worked with the 2001 Minnesota legislature to create the
Minnesota Board of School Administrators (MN BOSA).
As with other
professional boards, the MN BOSA is responsible for monitoring your
profession. Before the formation of the MN BOSA, the Minnesota
Commissioner of Children, Family and Learning (now the Minnesota
Commissioner of Education), had the responsibility for monitoring
Minnesota school administrators.
MN BOSA has eleven members and an
executive director. Seven of the eleven MN BOSA members hold current
Minnesota school administrator licenses, as does the executive director.
MN BOSA duties are described in MN Stat. 122A.14 and include:
- Process all complaints against school administrators.
- Process requests for issuing pre-approved continuing educational units (CEUs or clock hours) for educational administrative
- Enforce and advise school administrators in the code of ethics covering standards of professional practice.
- License of Minnesota school administrators (including request for licensure variance).
- Review and approve preparation programs for school administrators and alternative programs for administrators.
- Propose rulemaking.
- Assess an annual fee from licensed school administrators to support MN BOSA.
- Provide a bi-annual accountability report to the governor’s office.
