The Teaching Permit for Statutory Leave (TPSL) allows an employing agency to fill a position where the teacher of record is unable to teach due to a statutory leave (medical or otherwise) with a temporary teacher of record for the duration of the leave.  The TPSL may be issued with one or more authorizations in the areas of Multiple Subject, Single Subject, and Special Education, depending on an individual’s qualifications. The permit is renewable upon verification from the employing agency that specific requirements have been completed.  

Requirements for Initial Issuance:

1. Possession of a baccalaureate degree or higher from a regionally-accredited college or university.

2. Satisfy the basic skills requirement. See Commission leaflet CL-667, entitled Basic Skills Requirement for additional information.

3. Successful completion of an initial 45 hours of TPSL preparation as determined by the Local Employing Agency.

4. Successful completion of course work for the permit type requested.

5. The employing agency must complete the Verification of Requirements for the Teaching Permit for Statutory Leave (Form CL-903).
