The Superintendent or designee shall ensure that persons employed in positions requiring certification qualifications possess the appropriate credential or permit from the Commission on Teacher Credentialing (CTC) authorizing their employment in such positions.

When fully credentialed teachers are not available, the district may employ persons with intern credentials, emergency permits, pre-intern certificates or credential waivers under the conditions and limitations provided in state and federal law.

As necessary, all teachers of core academic subjects teaching in programs supported by federal Title I funds shall meet the requirements of the No Child Left Behind Act.  By the end of the 2005-06 school year, all teachers of core academic subjects shall meet the requirements of the No Child Left Behind Act.  (20 USC 6319, 7801; 5 CCR 6100-6125)
