BROWN DEER, Wis. (AP) - Gov. Scott Walker signed a bill into law that creates a temporary teaching license based on experience for vocational education teachers.

The law signed at Brown Deer High School in the Milwaukee area Tuesday, creates a licensing process based on experience in noncore subjects, including agriculture, child services, food services and marketing education.

Vocational teachers hired by a school district are issued a three-year teaching license by the Department of Public Instruction. Once that license expires, DPI may issue a professional teaching license to the applicant as long as they have successfully completed the curriculum established by the school board.

Supporters say the law will help school districts offer more courses in vocational areas.
