Instructor Appraisal Committees

(1) An Instructor Appraisal Committee (IAC) is a group of industry and education experts appointed by a school district with an approved ODE Career and Technical Education program. The IAC is convened to evaluate either CTE licensure or CTE endorsement applicants with regard to their work experience and preparation in a CTE endorsed area. (See OAR 584-042-0044 Career and Technical Education Endorsements.)

(2) The appointed Instructor Appraisal committee must make specific CTE licensure and endorsement recommendations to the Oregon Department of Education and to the Teacher Standards and Practices Commission based on their evaluation of each applicant’s preparation and work experience in a CTE endorsement area.

(3) The Instructor Appraisal Committee is comprised of specific membership depending on whether the applicant comes from business and industry or whether the applicant already holds a TSPC License. In all cases, the IAC must have at least five members. An individual member may represent more than one of the representative areas outlined in subsections (e) through (f) immediately below.

(a) Instructor Appraisal Committees evaluating applicants from business and industry and new to education must have at least two educator representatives on the committee subject to the requirements in subsection (e) below.

(b) Instructor Appraisal Committees evaluating applicants for a CTE endorsement onto a TSPC existing CTE, Basic, Standard, Initial or Continuing Teaching License must have at least two business and industry representatives on the committee subject to the requirements in subsection (f) below.

(c) District Administrators: All IACs must have a school district administrator or a director of CTE from the district. The administrator representative is an official member of the IAC.

(d) Ex-Officio: The district may appoint non-voting ex-officio members to the IAC.

(e) Educators: Educator representatives may be from public or private secondary and post-secondary institutions. Educators must possess current and substantial knowledge of pedagogy, instructional practices, assessment practices, classroom management, and educational policy. Secondary representatives must hold a valid TSPC license. Post-secondary representatives should be from the applicant’s endorsement program area. The educator representative(s) is an official member of the IAC.

(f) Business or industry members: Business or industry representatives may be either employers or employees of the business or industry. At least one business or industry representatives must be currently engaged in an occupation related to the career and technical education program endorsement area. The representative must possess current and substantial knowledge of the technical and environmental requirements, and standards of behavior required of the business or industry program. The business or industry representative is an official member of the IAC.

(4) Once appointed, the IAC must select a trained facilitator to operate the IAC during each candidate appraisal process. All facilitators must be approved by the ODE prior to selection. An ODE recognized Regional Coordinator of Career and Technical Education or an appropriate ODE program area specialist may serve as the facilitator. Failure to obtain ODE approval may result in an invalid recommendation and is a basis for determining that the licensure process is incomplete.

(5) The IAC must appoint a chair from the official membership of the committee. The chair may not be an ex-officio member or an appointed facilitator. The chair is responsible to provide the IAC’s rationale for the recommendation and must sign any submitted recommendation for a waiver of academic or work experience to the ODE, prior to application for licensure at TSPC.

(6) The CTE Regional Coordinator and the appropriate ODE program specialist must officially verify the IAC member roster as well as evaluations and recommendations of the IAC prior to application for licensure at TSPC.

(7) The applicant’s proposed professional development plan must be consistent with the CTE I Teaching License (OAR 584-042-0031) requirements if the candidate does not hold an existing CTE, Basic, Standard, Initial or Continuing teaching license.
