Original Emergency Permit (EP) (IN)
An Emergency Permit is issued at the request of a school district in a content area for which the district is experiencing difficulty staffing the assignment with a properly licensed educator. The Emergency Permit is a temporary credential issued to a school corporation or special education cooperative for a person who is not licensed for that assignment. The applicant must possess the minimum of a bachelor’s degree from a regionally accredited university in order to be eligible for the EP. The individual holding the EP must make a commitment to work toward completion of an approved program to either add the content area(s) of the EP to an existing license or to obtain an Initial Practitioner license for the content area(s). The permit holder must meet with a licensing advisor at an Indiana institution in order to learn about the requirements for completing the appropriate program.
