Educator Certification Examination
Retake Policy Change
• “good cause” waiver for exceeding 5 time max
testing requirement
– What is good cause?
– Fee?
– How often ask for a waiver? (thinking 1 year in
between)
– Submit request or go in person to request to the
board?
Certification discussions
• Requirement for certificate renewal
– No audits as of now but will possibly be starting
– If can’t show proof of hours then can invalidate
– If renewing a certificate that requires a license (ie.
Cosmetology, plumbing, etc. ) that license must
ALSO still have a valid license
• Chapter 231 proposal – if dual language and
team teaching, the “English” teacher can be
either ESL or Bil endorsed
Certification discussions
• Probationary certificates
– possibly start issuing in more than 1 area
– Effective date will be beginning of month
certificate is issued – does effective date matter to
us? Ie., contract validity
• Certification based on examination
– thinking that may need to do more than just pass
an exam in order to be able to get additional
certificates.
• Looking at possibly creating an EC
supplemental again
