These safety nets will be effective through June 30, 2016. If necessary, candidates may take advantage of multiple safety nets in order to meet the requirements for certification and will have until June 30, 2017, one year later, to meet all other certification requirements.
Any exam requirement to be satisfied by one of the safety nets must be satisfied on or before June 30, 2016. For example, a candidate who has failed both the edTPA and the ALST may use both applicable safety nets. However, all the requirements for the edTPA Safety Net and the ALST Safety Net must be met on or before June 30, 2016; the candidate will then have one additional year, until June 30, 2017, to complete all other requirements (example: coursework; DASA training).
