The State Board of Education to receive a teacher license and pay the bill next month
- If the public board rejects the rules of recommendation, it must be stated with its specific reasons for rejection.
- PEPSC will revise the recommendation rules and resubmit it. to public records.
- The state board will either add or reject recommended rule amendments.
- If the state board does not adopt PEPSC’s original and amended rule recommendations, the state board may develop and to adopt their own rules.
Schafer noted that the current law includes specific requirements for a teacher’s license. The law must be changed before it is adopted to meet the new requirements, he said. Many of the current rules conflict with PEPSC’s recommendations, which is likely to do the trick, Schafer said. “We can’t just adopt the rules that we’re allowed in the statute, so we need the statute first,” Schafer said. “Thus, the next step in developing a new licensing system would be for PEPSC to recommend and the public board to approve a request for changes to allow such a system or plan to be developed.” The General Assembly will return to Raleigh in January, and State Superintendent Catherine Truitt urged state boards to act soon to provide lawmakers with information and recommendations to move the process forward. As Policy Watch previously reported, the proposed licensing and payment model should be considered a system of entry-level certifications to enable more people. into confession. One certification essentially allows the learner to serve. Aspiring associate degree instructors are allowed to teach for two years while earning a bachelor’s degree. Teachers working under that license want to receive a base salary of $30,000. Veteran teachers in leadership roles could earn an advanced teacher’s license. A National Board Certified Teacher, working under that license with a master’s degree and more than 25 years of experience, could earn more than $80,000 a year. North Carolina teachers are now paid for years of experience. Veteran teachers would be held harmless if they lose their pay bill. Teachers complained that the proposed move was unhelpful to the merit pay system because places would place too much emphasis on students’ poor test scores. They argue that a better strategy for recruiting and retaining teachers — the goal of the new bill — is to pay them fairly. Truitt said the opinions he has received on the matter are usually based on “interpretations or misstatements” of fact. He contends that the model does not deserve to be returned.
