Bill Summaries:

  • Summary date: Mar 21 2017 - More information

    House committee substitute makes the following changes to the 1st edition:

    Amends GS 115C-296.11 as follows. Requires clinical educators who supervise students in residencies or internships at Department of Defense Elementary and Secondary Schools in North Carolina to meet or exceed performance standards on all aspects of the Department of Defense Education Activity teacher evaluation instrument (currently, must have been rated as "fully successful" in all areas of the instrument).

    Defineslocal school administrative unit to include Department of Defense Elementary and Secondary Schools located in North Carolina.


  • Summary date: Mar 9 2017 - More information

    Current law requires the State Board of Education to adopt and establish rules for educator preparation in accordance with six detailed requirements. One of those specifications requires the educator preparation program to ensure that clinical educators who supervise students in residencies or internships are (1) professionally licensed in the field of licensure sought by the student, (2) have a minimum of three years of experience in a teaching role, and (3) have been rated at least at the accomplished level as part of the North Carolina Teacher Evaluation System through formal evaluations and have met expectations as part of student growth in the field of licensure sought by the student. This act adds an alternative to satisfy that third prong, concerning supervisors having been at least rated at the accomplished level, to alternatively allow for clinical educators that are employed by the Department of Defense elementary and secondary schools located in the State and established pursuant to 10 USC 2164 who have been rated as fully successful in all areas of the Department of Defense Education Activity teacher evaluation instrument. Similarly, requires clinical educators employed by the Department of Defense schools to also have met expectations as part of student growth in the field of licensure sought by the student if that student growth measure exists. Makes technical changes. 

    Applies beginning with the 2017 fall academic semester.
