The proposed regulation adds a clarifying sentence under subsection 1.1.1; adds definitions of “passing score” and “target language” for the purpose of the regulation under subsection 2.2; amends the additional requirements under section 4.0; and adds section 6.0, which recognizes a Standard Certificate World Language Teacher issued before January 1, 2017.

The Professional Standards Board did not receive written comments. The Professional Standards Board believes that the proposed regulation serves to improve the quality of instruction for Delaware’s children and that the amendments are designed to improve the quality of the Delaware educator workforce and to improve student performance.
