Basic and Standard Teaching Licenses with Authorizations and Endorsements

(1) A Basic Teaching License issued under rules adopted prior to 1999 is valid for three years and may be renewed under conditions set forth in division 048. Except as provided in subsection (b) immediately below, the endorsements are valid only for assignments in grades K through grade nine if requirements leading to standard licensure are not met.

(a) To retain authorization for teaching in a high school, holders of subject matter endorsements must meet renewal requirements leading to standard licensure (See, Division 40 for further information).

(b) If the Basic Teaching License is endorsed in art, library (educational) media, world (foreign) language, health, family and consumer science (home economics), technology (industrial arts), music, physical education and reading, the assignment is limited to preprimary programs and grades 1 through 8, in any school and grade 9 if the teacher is teaching in a middle school or a junior high.

(2) A Standard Teaching License issued under rules adopted prior to 1999 is valid for five years and may be renewed. A Standard Teaching License is valid for the same assignments as a Basic Teaching License with similar authorizations and endorsements. In addition, the Standard Teaching License authorizes assignments in grades five through twelve or in preprimary through grade twelve for which a renewed Basic Teaching License may not provide authorization. These authorizations and endorsements are explained in the following sections.

(a) Preprimary through nine, except as provided in section (1)(b) of this rule;

(b) Preprimary through twelve;

(c) Grades five through nine; or

(d) Grades five through twelve.

(4) Assignments: Assignments which are permitted on Basic and Standard Teaching Licenses are stated as endorsements as follows:

(b) The Severe Exceptional Needs Learner endorsement is valid for teaching those defined in OAR 584-036-0005.

(6) Basic special education license must qualify for standard: Upon expiration of the second Basic Teaching License, the holder of a special education endorsement must qualify for a Standard Teaching License with a standard special education endorsement. The severe exceptional needs learner endorsement is an exception to this rule; it may be renewed without completion of a Standard Teaching License. (See OAR 584-048-0030 regarding renewal of the severe exceptional needs learner endorsement.)

(7) Career and Technical Education endorsements: A career and technical education endorsement is valid for teaching in career and technical education programs approved by the Oregon Department of Education and as noted on the license.
