Making Licensure Matter
Redesigning Licensure as A Lever for Increasing Student Achievement and Educator Effectiveness : A Preliminary Report to the Colorado State Board of EducationWebsite or Online Data - 2012
The current system of licensure relies primarily on program completion and qualifications that are not meaningfully connected to student learning. We recommend a redesign of educator licensing policy that will focus on the demonstrated knowledge, skills and performance of educators and allow for greater autonomy and innovation at the local and program level. Our recommendations would align licensure with other components of the state's strategy focused on great teachers and great leaders. The main purpose of this report is to delineate specific design principles for this redesign that will guide the development of a detailed proposal. In addition, the report describes the initial models that were development and how they informed our recommendations.
