Extractions: Question No 3: If the relationship is one of parental petitioner and school district grantor, how much discretion does the district have, and what may it require of petitioners? May the school, for example, require home visits, testing, school logs, or evidence concerning the qualifications of the home school teachers? Answer: The school district may require the parents to submit evidence that the minor is being taught at home in the subjects prescribed by the State Board of Education and for the same length of time as prescribed for public and regularly established private schools. The type of evidence may be left to the reasonable discretion of the school district. Discussion: The school district at least may reasonably require the parents to submit evidence on an annual basis that: (1) the minor is to be taught at home; (2) in the subjects prescribed by the State Board of Education in accordance with the law (3) for the same length of time as minors are required by law to be taught in the district schools over the course of a year.

Extractions: September 18, 2000 2000-R-0897 NATIONAL AND STATE TEACHER CERTIFICATION By: Judith S. Lohman, Chief Analyst You asked several questions about the relationship between Connecticut's system of teacher certification and certification by the National Board for Professional Teaching Standards (NBPTS). Questions and answers are listed separately below. Why doesn't Connecticut accept NBPTS certification in lieu of state teacher certification? In order to be eligible for NBPTS certification, a public school teacher must already have a valid state teaching certificate, a bachelors' degree from an accredited institution, and at least three years of teaching experience. A private school teacher who is not legally required to hold a state teaching certificate may receive board certification if she submits proof that the private school where she taught has state approval to operate. Is national board certification less rigorous than Connecticut's?

Extractions: International Employment for Teachers Alternative Certification Many states have developed or are initiating programs that provide alternative routes to teacher certification, particularly for mid-career professionals.

Extractions: WASHINGTON TOWNSHIP French teacher Catherine Russo is a novelty in her Gloucester County district. She is the only Washington Township educator to achieve national board certification and one of just 46 in New Jersey. In Pennsylvania, 47 teachers hold the honor. Russo, who teaches seventh and eighth graders at Chestnut Ridge Middle School, was certified in 1997 by the National Board for Professional Teaching Standards. "It's probably the most productive form of professional development I've ever done," said Russo, a teacher for 12 years. While national certification has been embraced by educators across the country, it has been slow to catch on in New Jersey. Nationwide, more than 16,000 teachers have received the certification. A new group will be named next month from among 20,000 candidates.
