LEA Specific Teacher License Information

Green River High School currently employs individuals with an LEA Specific License in either license or endorsement areas. 

The following designations or levels apply to educator licenses, license areas (elementary, secondary, or special education), and content endorsements (examples: mathematics, music, Spanish, social studies).
LEA-Specific:  An LEA-Specific educator license, including areas of concentration and endorsements, is issued by the state board at the request of an LEA’s governing body (example: local school board) that is valid for an employee to fill a position in the LEA if other licensing routes for the applicant are untenable or unreasonable. The LEA governing board agrees to provide the documentation and support outlined in the Utah Office of Administrative Rules  R277-301-7: LEA-specific Educator License Requirements. The educator has not completed an educator preparation program.
Professional:  The educator has completed an educator preparation program that includes content and pedagogical knowledge.  This program may have been completed at a university or in an alternate pathway that was supported by school districts and the Utah State Board of Education.
Associate:  The educator is currently completing an educator preparation program, but has not yet completed all requirements for a Professional Educator License, license area, or endorsement.  The educator is enrolled in a university-based or Local Education Agency (LEA)-based program.  When the educator completes the program, they will have a professional level.
