N.D. Admin Code 67-11-07-03 - Types of credentials

1. The provisional credential is valid until the end of the second school year following the year in which the provisional credential is issued, is not renewable, and is:
a. Issued to an individual that does not meet the qualifications for a professional credential;
b. Issued as the initial credential; and
c. Issued to those who have a level I principal's credential but lack the coursework or the experience, or both, necessary for the professional credential as identified in section 67-11-07-05.
2. The professional credential is:
a. Issued to coincide with the period for which the individual is licensed to teach by the North Dakota education standards and practices board and may be renewed; however, an individual holding a lifetime educator's professional license must renew the individual's credential every five years; and
b. Issued upon satisfying standards identified in section 67-11-07-05.
3. The provisional credential and the professional credential are valid only if the individual holding the credential also holds a valid North Dakota educator's professional license to teach during the period for which the credential has been issued. If a professional credential issued under this chapter will expire within twelve months of issuance because the educator's professional license will expire within twelve months of issuance of the new professional credential, the professional credential will be issued for a period coinciding with the period of licensure of the succeeding educator's professional license.
