Temporary Permit To Teach

Effective July 1, 2016, at the request of the employing LEA, NCDPI may issue a permit to teach for a teaching assignment at the A-00 pay level to persons who hold at least a baccalaureate degree but who do not qualify for a license under any other approach. The permit to teach shall be valid for one year and may not be renewed. When an LEA requests a permit to teach, the LEA must document that no appropriately licensed professionals or persons who are eligible for a residency or lateral entry license are available to accept the position.

NOTE: Once an individual holds a Residency License, the individual may not hold a Permit to Teach or an Emergency License.
