Authorization of submission of applications for Conditional Teaching Certificates

Please consider for approval conditional teaching certificates for pre-service teachers who will fill teaching positions for which there are not satisfactorily qualified applicants. 

The market for teaching candidates is currently very weak.   Posted positions are going without a single applicant.   We had a position posted for a Science teacher at WHS that had no applicants until a single internal applicant decided to make the shift.   We have had an art position at the WPS with no applicants.   We now have a posting at WMS for science that is going without applicants.

We have a mechanism available to us that we have begun to employ and will require board approval, authorizing us to submit applications.   The state allows us to apply for a two-year conditional certificate for pre-service teachers.  Folks who have all the training to become a teacher but are shy some coursework and/or student teaching.  

We are seeking authority from the board to submit applications for conditional certificates for Douglas "DJ" Malinoski, and Madison Becker.


Administrative Recommendation /MOTION/ "I move we authorize submission of applications for conditional teaching certificates for Douglas Malinoski and Madison Becker."
