  Adoption of rules on Emergency Teaching License
  Released: Friday, June 6, 2003 at 5:00 PM
 
 
 
At the last Commission meeting, the Teacher Standards and Practices Commission adopted OAR 584-060-0210 establishing an Emergency Teaching License. OAR 584-005-0005 was amended to include the definition of Emergency License under subsection (42).

These rules establish an Emergency License, not to exceed one year, when a school district demonstrates extenuating circumstances that merit the issuance of the license in order to protect the district's programs or students. There have been extenuating circumstances during the past year, particularly with the current economic restraints, that merit having this option. This license would not be considered "Highly Qualified" under the No Child Left Behind Act under any circumstance. Issuance of this license would be granted in a very limited number of cases.

These rules were filed with the Secretary of State on May 15, 2003.
