22-10A-11.3. Level three-B provisional licensure for school principals.

A. A school district that has a shortage of qualified school principal candidates may request that the department issue a provisional three-B license to a level two teacher whom the school district believes has the potential to be an effective school principal.

B. To qualify for a provisional three-B license, the candidate shall:

(1) meet the requirements for a level three-A license;

(2) be enrolled in a department-approved induction and mentoring program in the school district; and

(3) be accepted into a department-approved school administrator preparation program.

C. The provisional license is a four-year license and is not renewable. To maintain the provisional license, the licensee must receive satisfactory evaluations each year from the school district's mentoring program and from the school administrator preparation program. At the end of the four years, the provisional license may be converted to a regular level three-B license if the candidate:

(1) satisfactorily completes the school district's mentoring program; and

(2) satisfactorily completes the department-approved school administrator preparation program.
