TSPC Eliminates Basic Skills Test

July 01, 2015

At their June 2015 meeting, commissioners on the Oregon Teacher Standards and Practices Commission voted to eliminate the basic skills test as a requirement for initial educator licensing in Oregon, effective July 1, 2015.

If you are a Lewis & Clark candidate whose only remaining initial license requirement was the basic skills test, please contact your program office for details on being recommended to TSPC for the license.
