Expired Lateral Entry Licenses
The State Board of Education passed a policy that allows individuals who did not complete the requirements of the lateral entry license to obtain another lateral entry license under certain conditions. The policy reads as follows:
“Individuals who do not fulfill the requirements of their lateral entry license within the three years they are initially given may be issued another lateral entry license provided:
- they have passed the required licensure exam(s) for the specialty area in which the license will be issued and
- at least six years have elapsed since the prior lateral entry license was issued.”
The State Board of Education policy can be found at https://stateboard.ncpublicschools.gov/policy-manual/licensure LICN-001, Section 1.70 (the last paragraph). No new lateral entry licenses will be issued after June 30, 2019.
