  Adoption of rules on American Indian Languages Teaching License
  Released: Monday, August 26, 2002 at 5:00 PM
On August 2, 2002, the Teacher Standards and Practices Commission adopted rules establishing an American Indian Languages Teaching License 584-060-0200 as mandated by Senate Bill 690 (2001 Legislative session).

The rules create a special license for native speakers based on criteria developed by the tribes whose language will be taught. The license would be valid for three years and renewable upon application from the holder of the license. Holders of this license may not teach any subject other than the American Indian language(s) they are approved to teach by the tribe unless they also hold a teaching license issued under ORS 342.125.

These rules were filed with the Secretary of State on August 9, 2002, and will be incorporated into their compilation of OARs on or after September 1, 2002. In the meantime, the rules may be viewed by opening the above underlined and highlighted rule.
