17:3886 Teaching credentials; regular certification, permanent certification; effect of evaluation
A. If a teacher's evaluation demonstrates that he has met the standard for effectiveness as determined by the board, using value-added data, for three years during the initial certification or renewal process, a certificate shall be issued or renewed unless the board receives evidence from the local board, through an appeal, that justifies discontinuation. Similarly, if a teacher's evaluation demonstrates that he has not met the standard for effectiveness as determined by the board, using either value-added data or other components of the evaluation, for three years during the initial certification or renewal process, the board shall not issue or renew a certificate unless evidence of effectiveness is received from the local board, through an appeal, that justifies the issuance of a certificate.
B. Persons who seek a regular teacher certificate and hold a teacher certificate from out of state and have out-of-state teaching experience of three years or more shall not be credited with their years of teaching experience in the issuance of any teaching credential until receipt of a successful evaluation as provided by board policy.
