OAR 584-023-0005
Registry of Charter School Teachers


No persons shall serve as a teacher (as defined in ORS 342.120 (Definitions for chapter)) in a public charter school unless such person either holds a valid Oregon license issued by TSPC pursuant to 338.135 (Employees) or is registered with TSPC as a charter school teacher in accordance with 342.125 (Types of licenses)(5).


TSPC shall create a Public Charter School Registry for all non-licensed persons who are employed and registered as teachers in any charter school.


To obtain a charter school teacher registration, an applicant and the employing charter school will submit a joint application, which will include the following documentation:


Description of the specific teaching position the applicant will fill with the employing charter school plus an indication of the exact subjects the educator will be teaching;


Fingerprints on forms prescribed by the Oregon State Police and in the manner required by TSPC. Fingerprint cards previously filed with the Oregon Department of Education do not qualify;


Completed application and fee;


Transcripts of the applicant’s post-secondary education and evidence of other experience and qualifications relevant to the teaching position the applicant is seeking;


A list of any professional licenses held; and


A passing score on a commission-approved test of knowledge of U.S. and Oregon civil rights laws and professional ethics unless these requirements have already been met through prior TSPC licensure.


The registration is not transferrable to another charter school without an application for a registration change with TSPC.


A charter school registration may be renewed for an additional three-year term upon joint application of the registrant and employing charter school on forms established by the Commission and upon the payment of the applicable fee.
