      Resources and appropriate professional council;
   2) The license or certificate must exceed the entry level requirements called for by
      the district and the Colorado Department of Education.
   3) The license or certification process must require documented or supervised
      practical experience or reflective practice verified by the licensing agency;
   4) The license or certification process must require passing an examination that
      requires rigorous content knowledge;
   5) The license or certificate must be renewable through a process that may require
      further demonstration of expertise;
   6) The licensing or certification process may also require demonstration of results by
      exceeding national benchmarks for performance set by the licensing agency;
   7) The license or certificate must enhance and be directly related to, aligned with, or
      supportive of the employee’s current role, proposed role, or temporary assignment
      covered by the DCTA bargaining unit.
