Whenever any Educator Preparation
Provider (EPP) or educator preparation program is denied approved status or has
such status withdrawn, the denial or withdrawal must be treated as a contested
case under ORS chapter 183. However, in an effort to adjudicate the matter
short of a formal hearing, the Commission will inform the EPP of:
(a) The Commission's intent to deny approval
before taking formal action; and
(b) The time and place the matter will come
before the Commission and make provisions in the agenda for institutional
representatives to address the Commission.
(2) Should the EPP not accept Commission
denial of approval, the EPP may request a contested case hearing pursuant to
ORS Chapter 183.
(3) Unless the
decision of the Commission is accompanied by a finding that immediate
withdrawal of approval is necessary to protect the safety and well-being of
students in the EPP's programs, an appeal in a proceeding to withdraw approval
shall operate as a stay of the Commission's determination to deny or withdraw
approval until final determination of the appeal.
