AAS/Work Experience Waiver Request Process
(Prerequisites for a CTE I Teaching License)

         A CTE Regional Coordinator contacts the appropriate career area specialist at ODE to explore
         the viability of a waiver request for the specific applicant
         The Instructor Appraisal Committee (IAC) decides to officially request the waiver
         The Waiver Request Form, including a detailed rationale, is completed by the CTE Regional
         Coordinator in response to the IAC recommendation
         The Waiver Request Form is signed by the CTE Regional Coordinator, and School District
         Representative
         The signed Waiver Request is sent to ODE with the completed and signed CTE I Application form
         through one of the three methods listed below to ODE in care of Ilene Spencer or Susanne
         Daggett:
          Hard copy through USPS (Ilene/Jennell, EII/ODE, 255 Capitol St NE, Salem, OR 97310)
          Scanned and emailed (Ilene.Spencer@state.or.us or Jennell.Ives@state.or.us)
          Faxed (Attn: Ilene Spencer or Jennell Ives -- 503-378-5156)
         ODE takes action on the request:
          If the application is approved, ODE signs the Waiver Form and Faxes it to TSPC with the
            other appropriate pages of the CTE I application
          If the application is denied – ODE contacts the RC for additional information, documentation
            or referral back to the IAC
         TSPC takes action on the entire CTE I application and informs the applicant and CTE Regional
         Coordinator of the result
