Public Comment Opportunity: RULE 5100: RULES GOVERNING THE LICENSING OF EDUCATORS AND THE PREPARATION OF EDUCATIONAL PROFESSIONALS
2020 VSBPE Rule Revisions
The VSBPE is undertaking revisions to the rules that govern the training, licensing and professional standards of teachers and administrators, Series 5100: Rules Governing the Licensing of Educators and the Preparation of Educational Professionals. The proposed rule revisions support the VSBPE’s mission.
Specifically, the VSBPE is:
i. Providing clarification to current Rules regarding definition of terms.
ii. Combined endorsements 5440-76 Reading/English Language Arts Specialist and 5440-78 Reading /English Language Arts Coordinator in a single endorsement called the Specialized Literacy Professional (5440-79). The previous endorsements will be sunset.
iii. A new sub endorsement for Career Technical Educators for Driver and Traffic Safety Education (5440-17, L-1) was created. The holder of the CTE Driver and Traffic Safety Education sub endorsement L-1 is limited to grades 9-12 and holders are authorized to teach in a CTE setting under the auspices of a CTE center.
iv. Education Speech Language Pathologists and School Psychologists will now count as teaching experience towards an Administrative endorsement.
v. Removal of the word "initial" in Rule 5323 to allow a second "initial" license.
