COVID-19 Updates

Stay Informed with North Carolina Teachers

We are dedicated to keeping you informed with the latest updates related to COVID-19. We strive to provide you with clear information and will continue to release new information. We are aware of how disruptive school closures may be to your current progression but rest assured – we are working with state officials, district and campus administration, our field supervisors, and individuals within the organization to determine the best path forward. To continue working toward your certification, we encourage you to finish your online Pre-Service Training.

Please read the latest update regarding Senate Bill 704, signed by North Carolina Govenor, Roy Cooper on May 4, 2020. This bill has multiple sections concerning education, educator preparation programs, and teacher licensure requirements. Please see below for North Carolina Teachers of Tomorrow’s interpretation of specific parts which may affect your Residency Program:

  • Section 2.22(b): This section allows an Educator Preparation Program to deem a student’s clinical internship completed provided specific conditions. It defines the clinical practice requirements that an educator preparation program requires of its students as either an (1) Internship that lasts for a minimum of 16 weeks, or (2) a Residency that lasts for a minimum of one year. This section allows Educator Preparation Programs with students participating in a traditional clinical internship (i.e. student teaching) to deem these internships completed.
  • Section 2.22(c): This section allows those students whose clinical internship was deemed completed – pursuant to Section 2.22(b) – forgo completion of a pedagogy assessment (e.g. edTPA), as a requirement for Educator Preparation Program completion. These students must still complete the pedagogy assessment.

If you are enrolled in a residency license program or teaching on a residency license, your program requirements are not altered. If you are currently teaching on a residency license, North Carolina Teachers of Tomorrow will be reaching out to you this month with a new Form RL, which you will submit to your Human Resources department, to receive a second residency license valid for the 2020-2021 school year.

As you wait for further communication, please continue to complete all online components of your Pre-Service Training. Please remember that we are still open and accepting phone calls, should you have any further questions. We will continue to update this page with any new and relevant information, so please monitor it closely.
