During the validity period of this certificate, the educator must enroll in and complete a GaPSC-approved Performance-Based Leadership preparation (Building level or System-level) program. Should the educator be reassigned from building-level to system-level or vice versa while in the approved program, it is the responsibility of the GaPSC-approved provider to adjust the program to match the existing employment level and the responsibility of the LUA to request the appropriate certificate; or (iii) An educator meeting admissions criteria for the Georgia Alternative Preparation for Educational Leadership Program and employed in a leadership position may be issued a five (5)-year Non-Renewable Performance-Based Professional certificate.

(4) To Add the Field (See GaPSC Rule ADD A FIELD).

4 Page 4 (a) To add Educational Leadership to an existing Professional certificate in any field, an educator must complete a GaPSC-approved certification program in Performance-Based Educational Leadership to include all applicable Special Georgia Requirements (See GaPSC Rule SPECIAL GEORGIA REQUIREMENTS). Georgia educators who complete out-of-state programs not approved by the GaPSC will not be eligible for Georgia certification in Educational Leadership. (5) To Upgrade the Level (See GaPSC Rule CERTIFICATE UPGRADE). (a) In order to qualify for an In-Field or New-Field Upgrade, all requirements outlined in the Certificate Upgrade Rule must be completed. 1. Educators completing a GaPSC-approved Performance-Based Educational Leadership program at the doctoral level who are not currently certified in Educational Leadership will not qualify for an upgrade to Level Six (6) based on achieving All But Dissertation (ABD) status during the doctoral program. A New-Field Upgrade requires completion of the GaPSC-approved program in Performance-Based Educational Leadership at a higher degree level, so an educator enrolled in a doctoral program will not qualify for a New-Field upgrade until completion of that program, passing the GACE content assessment and adding the field (6) Payment on Leadership Degrees. (a) The following procedures for placement on the State Salary Schedule apply to Georgia educators and out-of-state educators applying for educational leadership based on reciprocity: 1. The Georgia General Assembly added language to O.C.G.A (through HB455 in 2009 and HB923 in 2010) that would place restrictions on paying educators salary increases based on earning advanced degrees in Educational Leadership. Specifically, the State will pay on advanced leadership degrees if the educator holding the degree is employed in a leadership position as defined by the Georgia Department of Education (GaDOE). 2. If an educator earned a leadership degree from a GaPSC-approved or GaPSC-accepted institution prior to July 1, 2010, then he or she will be paid on the degree level regardless of position assignment. 3. If an educator was enrolled in a GaPSC-approved or GaPSC-accepted leadership degree program prior to April 1, 2009, and completed the master s degree by July 1, 2012, or completed the specialist degree by July 1, 2013, or completed the doctoral degree by July 1, 2014, then he or she will be paid on that degree level regardless of position assignment. 4. Unless grandfathered under (6)(a)2 or 3 above, an educator who earns a leadership degree from a GaPSC-approved or GaPSC-accepted institution after July 1, 2010, must be employed in a leadership position in order for the advanced leadership degree to be considered in the calculation of the educator s salary. (7) Renewal Requirements (See GaPSC Rule RENEWAL REQUIREMENTS). (8) In-Field Statement (GaPSC Rule IN-FIELD ASSIGNMENT). (a) Educators holding a valid Standard Professional certificate in Educational Leadership are infield to serve as a building-level or system-level education leader in positions that require leadership certification. Educators holding a valid Performance-Based Professional Educational Leadership (building-level) certificate may serve in the described positions at the building-level, and those
