Quick Summary / Abstract: Approval of Assignment Under Ed Code 44831. Authorization for assignment out of credentialed area.
Background: The Commission on Teacher Credentialing, in accordance with California Education Code 44831, allows a governing board of a school district to contract or employ an individual to provide speech and language services if the District has verified all of the following:

• Master’s degree in communicative disorders
• Valid license from the Speech-Language Pathology and
Audiology Board
• Passage of the California Basic Educational Skills Test
(CBEST), and
• The criminal record summary according to EC 44332.6

Our District was fortunate to recruit such an individual. In order to retain certificated services for the 2019-2020 school year, this Authorization For Assignment Out of Credentialed Area will be presented to our Board annually. Authorizing the hire of a candidate who falls under this provision reduces the need to contract with outside agencies, ensures consistency within staff, and adheres to District policies and procedures.
Status When this alternative certification is used, it must be approved annually by the governing board.
Fiscal Impact Approving this authorization allows the hiring of staff to replace contracted services at a cost savings to our District.
Superintendent's Recommendation: Approve the request for Authorization of Assignment Out of Credentialed Area.
