Draft Framework for Initial Licensure of Professional Educators in the State of Indiana.
Indiana State Dept. of Education, Indianapolis. Professional Standards Board.
Another step in the process of teacher education reform under the leadership of the Indiana Professional Standards Board (IPSB), this paper presents the draft framework for the initial licensure of professional educators in the state of Indiana. The preface discusses the composition of the committee, the process, selections, the "house" metaphor, parameters, planning assumptions, appearance of the new license, content areas for the new license, bases of the framework, additional recommendations, and the dissemination process. The paper then presents the licensure committee charge and then the recommended framework for initial licensure in each content area (building level administrator, English as a new language, exceptional needs, fine arts, foreign language, generalist, health/physical education, language arts, library media, mathematics, science, social studies, and vocational/career education). A list of unresolved issues to revisit and recommended items for consideration by the standards review committee are attached. (RS)
