Texas Teachers Intern Agreement

I even had an observation in October from my department manager before I completed my online training. I was finally able to complete my online training in February, but Texas Teachers tells me that my internship starts now and that I won`t be able to get a certificate until I complete a full year of learning. I started teaching in August 2018. I had not yet completed my online training, but I was told that once I had completed it, I could start my internship certificate and be certified until the end of the school year to teach. In order to qualify for a certificate, a teacher candidate must pass all appropriate certification exams. For an internship in a professional and technical classroom teacher mission training on the basis of skills and experience, a candidate must meet the requirements of this field and pass the corresponding content certification exam (e). The test certificate requires an additional requirement for the successful pedagogical and professional exam (PPR). At first glance, the new internship certificate could recall the current test certificate, with the exception of the possibility of replacing the completion of the courses with the one that passed the certification exam for the corresponding content. Holding: The Commissioner partially granted the woman`s appeal. According to the Texas Education Code 5.001 (2), a «class teacher» is «a teacher who works in a school district and teaches in a university education setting, no less than four hours a day on average.» According to the district, the woman`s employment contract stated that her work was at will. In addition, the borough submitted that it was not entitled to a trial contract under the terms of the NACT, as it was not a «class teacher» as a «teaching trainee» with a single SBEC test certificate. Texan training code 5.001 (5) states that a class teacher is «a person who must have a certificate under Sub-Chapter B, Chapter 21.» Facts: During the 2013-2014 school year, the woman was enrolled in the district`s alternative teacher certification program and worked for the district as an alternative certification teacher. During the 2013-2014 school year, she received a test certificate from the National Educator Certification Board (SBEC).

On July 8, 2013, she signed a document entitled «Alternative Teacher Certification Program Statement of Understanding, 2013-2014.» The document states: «This declaration of agreement does not change the status of the teaching intern in the alternative certification program.» During the 2013-2014 school year, the woman was a first-year teacher at Stevens Park Elementary. In this position, she taught more than four hours per day of classes and was responsible for assessing student achievement and awarding grades. On April 15, 2014, the borough sent him a letter stating that «your internship contract for the alternative certification program at the end of the 2013-2014 school year is terminated.» The probation certificate expired on August 26, 2014. The woman appealed the resignation of the district and then the Education Commissioner. It submitted that it was legally entitled to a trial contract under the Term Contract Nonrenewal Act («TCNA»), Texas Education Code 21.002 (a) which stipulates that a school district must employ every class teacher… under: a trial contract… A fixed-term contract… (chapter 21 of the treaty»).
