Synopsis As Introduced
Amends the Educator Licensure Article of the School Code. Provides that a career and technical educator or a part-time provisional career and technical educator endorsement may be issued to an applicant who, among other requirements, has a minimum of 60 semester hours of coursework from a regionally accredited institution of higher education or an accredited trade and technical institution (rather than just a regionally accredited institution of higher education). Allows individuals seeking these endorsements to pass a test of basic skills or a test of work proficiency. Allows individuals holding a provisional career and technical educator endorsement to renew their endorsement more than one time. Reduces the semester hour requirement for a provisional career and technical educator endorsement from 20 to 15. Effective July 1, 2017.

With respect to a provisional career and technical educator endorsement on an Educator License with Stipulations, removes a duplicate reference to a test of work proficiency and removes a provision requiring the completion of coursework.
