Transitional Administrator License for First Time Out-of-State Applicants


Upon filing a correct and complete application in form and manner prescribed by the commission, a qualified applicant who has never been licensed in Oregon as an administrator may be granted a Transitional Administrator License.


Intentionally left blank —Ed.


The Transitional Administrator License is issued for eighteen months and is not renewable. At that time, the educator must qualify for an Initial or a Continuing Administrator License. Under significant extenuating circumstances, additional time may be allowed, as described below in section (5) of this rule.


The educator must qualify for a Continuing Administrator License upon expiration of six (6) years following the date the Transitional Administrator License was first issued.


The Transitional Administrator License is valid for:


Administration at all levels (principal or superintendent); and


Substitute administration at all age or grade levels; and it is also valid for substitute


Substitute teaching at any level in any specialty. Note: An active teaching license is required for any teaching beyond substituting.


To be eligible for a Transitional Administrator License, the applicant must:


Possess the personal qualifications for licensure including attainment of at least eighteen years of age and possessing good moral character and mental and physical health necessary for employment as an educator;


Hold a master’s or higher degree in the arts and sciences or an advanced degree in the professions from a regionally accredited institution in the United States or approved foreign equivalent;


Hold a non-provisional state license for school administration; and


Furnish fingerprints in the manner prescribed by the commission and provide satisfactory responses to the character questions contained in the commission’s licensure application. (See also, OAR 584-036-0062 for Criminal Records Check Requirement.)


If significant extenuating circumstances prevent the educator from completing these requirements prior to the expiration of the Transitional Administrator License an Emergency Administrator License may be issued, at the sole discretion of the Executive Director. Evidence of the extenuating circumstances must be presented to the Executive Director, who then determines if and for how long an emergency license should be issued as needed to protect the district’s programs or students.
