MATTERS NOT REQUIRING BOARD ACTION
Proposed Amendment of Sections 80-3.7 and 80-5.22 of the Regulations of the Commissioner of Education Relating to the Degree and Experience Requirements for College Professors for the Transitional G Certificate and Through the Individual Evaluation Pathway to Certification [HE (D) 1] - Department staff presented proposed amendments to the Commissioner’s regulations to revise the requirements for the Transitional G certificate and certification through the individual evaluation pathway for college professors by no longer requiring them to complete their teaching experience within 10 years immediately preceding the certificate application date, and allowing them to meet the education requirement if they hold a baccalaureate degree in the area of a certificate title, or in a closely related subject area acceptable to the Department, and a graduate degree in another area.
Deputy Commissioner William Murphy reviewed the items on the Consent Agenda.
