Alternate Supervisors for Adding Endorsements  

Effective April 16, 2018, school districts may use an ÔÇťalternate supervisor" to oversee practicum experiences for teachers holding a Preliminary Teaching License and adding an endorsement by passing the required content test and completing a practicum. Districts are encouraged to

 

Key Points to Remember:

  • The alternate supervisor may only be selected out of necessity, not as a matter of preference, when the district is unable to provide a teacher holding the appropriate endorsement.
  • Supervising teachers must hold the Professional, Continuing, Standard, Legacy or Teacher Leader license to be eligible to supervise a practicum. 
  • The district must provide the reason for using a supervisor with an alternate endorsement on the verification statement for the practicum.  
  • If a district selects an alternate from the approved list, no pre-approval is required from TSPC to use the alternate supervisor.  However, the district must provide a reason for using the alternate on their practicum verification statement.
  • Prior to submitting the verification statement, the supervisory teacher must advise the district that the applicant has obtained the required pedagogy skills to teach in the new endorsement area. 

If a district finds it necessary to utilize an alternate supervisor that is not on the approved list, the district must obtain approval from TSPC prior to the supervision of the practicum. Districts should contact their TSPC assigned evaluator for pre-approval of an alternate supervisor unless included on the list below. The request must explain the reason for requesting an alternative supervisor and will be reviewed by the Director of Licensure.
