Policy 2520.2, 21st Century Mathematics Content Standards and Objectives in West Virginia Schools, is to be phased out as we move all students into the Policy 2520.2B, West Virginia College- and Career-Readiness Standards for Mathematics.  Policy 2520.2 remained as policy to provide the cohorts of students, who began in that pathway of mathematics, the opportunity for completion.  Those students have since had that opportunity and all students are now in line to move into Policy 2520.2B,.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

It is recommended and a motion is requested that Policy 2520.2 be repealed effective July 1, 2016.

Cindy Daniel

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The major function of the ACEPPRB is to review and make recommendations to the WVBE regarding approval of new and continuing alternative certification educator preparation programs leading to teaching certification and licensure. The ACEPPRB structure supports the intended collaborative process to ascertain effective alternative certification educator preparation programs in WV schools districts, filling critical shortage teaching vacancies with effectively prepared, qualified educators. Policy 5901 provides guidelines and procedures for the approval of alternative certification educator preparation programs leading to licensure in West Virginia and Policy 5202 provides guidelines and procedures for issuance of the Alternative Teaching Certificate and Initial Professional Teaching Certificates.  The ACEPPRB is an eight-member Board parallel to the traditional EPPRB that has been in existence for many years. It is comprised of educators, both traditionally and alternatively prepared as well as administrators at the school and central office level and higher education representatives.

 

On June 15, 2016, the ACEPPRB agreed on a recommendation of approval to the WVBE of the following programs (7.a through 7.j) which are standard Alternative Certification, district-lead, programs for teacher licensure in general and special education. These programs follow WVBE Policy 5901 as well as WVBE Policy 5202. The proposed programs follow the same templates and rubrics as the Alternative Certification programs which were approved by the WVBE during the June meeting.

During the 2016 legislative session, Senate Bill 146 was signed into law.  The passage of SB 146 amends W.Va. Code §18-5-44.  Early childhood education programs, from requiring county boards of education to provide pre-k programs from full day, five days per week to a more flexible program option, which includes at least fifteen hundred minutes per week and forty-eight thousand minutes of instruction per year.  The amendment is effective July 1, 2016.  The policy revision remains aligned with WVBE Policy 4320, Child Nutrition Programs and WVBE Policy 4321.1, Standards for School Nutrition.  West Virginia Universal Pre-K maintains a unique collaborative approach.  Through stakeholder input, some minor revisions have been requested to support continued collaborative efforts among county early childhood collaborative teams and reflect current practices in place across pre-k.  The proposed revisions to Policy 2525 will increase equitable services across all county pre-k programs in comparison to current program requirements.  The proposed changes will increase the minimum requirements from fourteen hours per week to twenty-five hours per week.  Changes to requirements for meals will ensure that each child has two meals per day.  Additional changes will support local programs in aligning services with partners.

Policy 5800 is developed as a foundational document to inform and direct educational leadership policy and programs at the state, county, regional and school level.  This policy is intended to be the central guide for future policy and program development in the areas of leadership recruitment, selection, preparation, licensure, induction, professional development and evaluation.  This policy is also intended to be a framework of professional practice around which current and future leaders can reflect on and improve their professional expertise.  The underlying focus of each leadership standard described in this policy is a pervasive commitment to the advancement of student learning; learning that is broad enough, deep enough and individualized enough to develop the conceptual understandings, skills and dispositions necessary for transition to post-secondary education and careers.

A listing of all WVBE-required licensure exams and industry credentials required for educator certification and for completion of West Virginia Board of Education-approved Career and Technical Education programs leading to West Virginia licensure.  This Manual is maintained on the WVDE website. When tests, scores, or industry credentials listed in the manual are changed, the validity period for the previously listed test, score, and/or industry credential shall be one year from the effective date of the new test, score, or industry credential. Exception: tests, scores, or industry credentials shall remain valid for twelve months after completion of an approved program for licensure where the applicant was continuously enrolled even if the test, score, or industry credential has changed.  Provide more flexibility for timely changes in Career and Technical endorsement areas to allow the most qualified teachers to be in the classroom.

Alternative Certification Educator Preparation Program Review Board (ACEPPRB) Recommendations - (Action)

The major function of the ACEPPRB is to review and make recommendations to the WVBE regarding approval of new and continuing alternative certification educator preparation programs leading to teaching certification and licensure. The ACEPPRB structure supports the intended collaborative process to ascertain effective alternative certification educator preparation programs in WV schools districts, filling critical shortage teaching vacancies with effectively prepared, qualified educators. Policy 5901 provides guidelines and procedures for the approval of alternative certification educator preparation programs leading to licensure in West Virginia and Policy 5202 provides guidelines and procedures for issuance of the Alternative Teaching Certificate and Initial Professional Teaching Certificates.  The ACEPPRB is an eight-member Board parallel to the traditional EPPRB that has been in existence for many years. It is comprised of educators, both traditionally and alternatively prepared as well as administrators at the school and central office level and higher education representatives.

 

On June 15, 2016, the ACEPPRB agreed on a recommendation of approval to the WVBE of the following programs which are standard Alternative Certification, district-lead, programs for teacher licensure in general and special education. These programs follow WVBE Policy 5901 as well as WVBE Policy 5202. The proposed programs follow the same templates and rubrics as the Alternative Certification programs which were approved by the WVBE during the June meeting.
