TO APPROVE REGULATIONS OF THE STATE BOARD OF EDUCATION, RELATING TO CREDENTIAL CLASSIFICATION, DESIGNATED AS REGULATION DOCUMENT NUMBER 4788, PURSUANT TO THE PROVISIONS OF ARTICLE 1, CHAPTER 23, TITLE 1 OF THE 1976 CODE.
Be it enacted by the General Assembly of the State of South Carolina:

SECTION 2. This joint resolution takes effect upon approval by the Governor.
State Board of Education Regulation 43-53 governs the types of certificates issued to educators. Amendments to Regulation 43-53 will update requirements for issuing specific credential types and will remove the names of specific approved non-traditional or alternative educator preparation providers. These specific terms will be replaced with general language indicating that an appropriate alternative route certificate will be issued to a candidate meeting the requirements for certification outlined in the Board of Education guidelines for a specific provider.
Notice of Drafting for the proposed amendments to the regulation was published in the State Register on June 23, 2017.
