  News Release
The following is a news release from the Oregon Teacher Standards and Commission. If there are more details that we can provide for you, please feel free to contact us (see Contact Us).
  Conditional Assignment Permits
  Released: Wednesday, February 25, 2004 at 5:00 PM
First, we would like to apologize for the uneven way that the conditional assignment permits (CAPs) have been handled this year. This is largely due to the transitions we have had in the Coordinator for Teacher Licensure position.

If you have not heard from us by now, please consider your CAP approved. We are currently submitting your CAPs to a process that will allow us to generate a letter of approval. We will not be issuing the "certificates" that we have in the past. These "permits" are not licenses and the certificates have caused confusion in this area.

We have not had the opportunity to review the decisions that were made to approve this year's CAP requests. To that end, if we discover through our subsequent review that a CAP should have been denied, we will contact you immediately. We will consider the assignment a "no harm, no foul" situation, but please know you will be required to remedy the situation as soon as is practicable. You may be required to obtain an emergency license for the assignment through the remainder of the year, depending on the circumstances.

Again, please accept our apologies for this confusion.
