In accordance with applicable statues, Rules of the Board of Regents and Regulations of the Commissioner of Education, each employee whose employment requires certification or another licensure shall inform the Superintendent of Schools immediately of any change in the status of his or her certification or licensure. The changes shall include, but not be limited to, the granting, revocation, upgrading, expiration, conversion or extension of these documents as to the periods of validity or their titles.
The original certificates or licenses must be presented for examination and copying in the office of the Superintendent of Schools as soon as they are available to the employee. The copies will be maintained in the employee’s personnel file in support of the legitimate employment of each affected employee. The failure of any such employee to possess the required certification or other icensure may result in the discharge of that employee.
Whether or not the District verifies an individual’s certification or licensure does not waive the responsibility of the employee to maintain what is required for his or her assignment.
