Licensure Regulations for School Personnel.
Virginia State Dept. of Education, Richmond.
These regulations outline specific licensure requirements for individuals seeking additional endorsements (teaching areas or other school personnel positions), licensure outside of a state-approved program, or licensure through alternate routes. The regulations do not affect individuals completing a Virginia approved program for initial licensure; therefore, individuals enrolled in an approved teacher preparation program in Virginia must complete the requirements approved by the Board of Education and stipulated by the institution. The Virginia licensure regulations stipulate that individuals may become licensed in Virginia through a Virginia state-approved program; reciprocity with a state approved teacher training program in another state; or by recommendation of an individual's employing Virginia school division or nonpublic school. The eight sections of the document are as follows: (1) "Definitions"; (2) "Administering the Regulations"; (3) "Licensure"; (4) "Revocation, Cancellation, Suspension, Denial, and Reinstatement of Teaching Licenses"; (5) Advisory Board on Teacher Education and Licensure"; (6) "General and Professional Studies Requirements"; (7) "Teaching Endorsements" (requirements for endorsement in specific subject areas); and (8) "Support Personnel" (requirements for endorsement for division superintendent, instructional and supervisory personnel, reading specialist, school counselor, school principal, school psychologist, school social worker, visiting teacher, vocational evaluator, and vocational special needs). Excerpts from the Code of Virginia are appended. (ND)
