DECLARATION OF NEED FOR FULLY QUALIFIED EDUCATORS (Mrs. Mills)

The Commission on Teacher Credentialing currently issues emergency permits at the request of employing districts. Only emergency CLAD, BCLAD, resource specialist, and library media may be requested.

There may be the possibility that our newly hired teachers may be applying for their emergency CLAD permit this year. The district places every ELL student in a class with a teacher who holds an EL authorization. The emergency CLAD permit is an option for teachers to properly have ELL students assigned to them while they are completing coursework or the CTEL exam for the CLAD certificate. We encourage and monitor any new teachers who are working on obtaining their EL authorization to maintain 100% authorized to provide instruction to EL students.

Additionally, we have several teachers that are presently on internship credentials nearing completion in order to apply for their preliminary credentials.

The recommended action is to approve the Annual Declaration of Need for Fully Qualified Educators as presented.
