Renewal and Acceleration with Data – Virtual Webinar – February 8, 2023 – 9:30am to 10:30am

In lieu of our traditional in-person Data Conference held annually in Kearney, we have transitioned this event into a series of shorter, informational webinars catering to the needs of Nebraska school districts/systems at thoughtfully determined points throughout the year. Additionally, the new monthly webinar series will be taking the place of the ADVISER District Meetings which had occurred at 10am on the 2nd Wednesday of each month. Part of each webinar will be dedicated to ADVISER status updates, so any district users who attended the old meeting are encouraged to sign up for the webinars instead.

For the February session, the schedule is:
9:30am – 10:00am – ADVISER Monthly Update & Feedback (Max Reiner, Data Collections)
10:00am – 10:30am – FAQ on Staff reporting errors (Naomi Kohles, Service Desk)

The webinar is free to attend, but registration is required. To register and for more information please visit: https://nedataconference.com/Read More › – Renewal and Acceleration with Data – Virtual Webinar – February 8, 2023 – 9:30am to 10:30am

Spring 2023 Conditional Permit Requests

OPENS
11/14/2022
CLOSES
02/28/2023

The purpose of this bulletin item is to provide guidance on how to request a conditional permit for teachers who have been hired to start in JANUARY 2023 and may not have all their necessary documentation prior to the first day of school with students. This information is also available on the NDE Bulletin website or  (https://www.education.ne.gov/bulletin).

CONDITIONAL PERMITS – The certification staff have received applications for January graduates and realize that some colleges will not be issuing transcripts until mid to late January. Occasionally, there are other documents that may not make it to certification until after the start of the second semester. For teachers who have been hired to start in January, we may be able to issue a conditional permit if requested from the school district.

A conditional permit can be issued when we have the following items:

  1. An application and fee
  2. A request for a conditional permit from the school district. NOTE: A request can be completed through a Google Form for those with spring teaching positions at https://forms.gle/PJ6rXTUq5jJBaA3X9.
  3. Fingerprints (if needed) – A set of fingerprint cards would need to be logged in our office for a conditional to be issued but not cleared by the Nebraska State Patrol.
  4. A document from the college stating that a program has been completed. Preferred: An Institutional Verification form from the college and a “close to final” or transcript showing the human relations and special education courses. Minimum: A letter in lieu of a transcript stating that the candidate has completed a program of study along with the required human relations and special education courses.

Deficiencies that can be placed on the permit include one or a combination of the following: a…Read More › – Spring 2023 Conditional Permit Requests
