You need to login or register to save this route.


Permits are extendable certificates designed for individuals who qualify to teach in specific fields based on a combination of work experience, education, and assessment(s). Permit applicants must be employed by a Georgia LUA (or, Local Unit of Administration). The LUA must work with the applicant to create a Professional Learning Plan (PLP) detailing professional development that will be completed during the permit validity. Permits are valid for 3 years. The core qualifications for an initial permit in a foreign language field include a bachelor’s degree ohigher in the content area, and a passing score on the appropriate Georgia-endorsed language assessment. In languages for which both a Georgia-endorsed assessment and an ACTFL assessment are available, either is acceptable for issuance of a permit. Note that because permit holders have not completed an educator preparation program, a permit is not considered a professional certificate.
