Current law states that a school district cannot require, by
inference or otherwise, a teacher to become a member of a group or
organization as part of their employment contract or agreement. The bill
clarifies that a teacher has the right to opt in or opt out of membership in
a group or organization at any time.
The state board of education is required to promulgate rules that

require the department of education to notify in writing or electronically
teachers, at least 2 times per year, of their rights relating to opting in or
out of membership in a group or organization related to their employment.
