  Changes in Recency Requirements
  Released: Friday, August 14, 2009 at 11:10 AM
  Recency requirements were removed from the rules by the Teacher Standards and Practices Commission at their April 30th meeting.

Removal of these requirements means that licensees will NO LONGER need to meet the one full year of experience during the life of the license for renewal, or the following equivalent combinations that could be substituted:

One hundred eighty days of teaching in schools; Any combination of time .5 FTE or more that totals 180 days of experience during the life of the license will be accepted; or nine quarter or six semester hours of preparation completed in a regionally accredited institution; or a combination of experience and academic credit germane to the license may be submitted in satisfaction of this requirement in which one quarter hour of preparation equals 20 days and one semester hour equals 30 days of experience.

Recency is not to be confused with the coursework requirements to renew the Initial I license. If you have questions, call or email us at ask.tspc.state.or.us
