I just received information about an Ethics Review all teachers renewing their license for June 2011 will be required to complete. The following is from UEA President, Sharon Gallagher-Fishbaugh.
"I spoke with Carol Lear, USOE Director of School Law and Legislation, to clarify this new requirement. The review is not graded nor is there a penalty for missed questions. A teacher may even have the copy of the Ethic Standards with him/her as they participate in this review. The USOE is hoping to bring the Board Rules regarding ethical teacher behavior to the forefront. Should a question be answered incorrectly, there is a tutorial provided to educate the practitioner."
More information will be available at USOE License Renewal after January 3, 2011.
