(a) A county board of education or city and county board of education may issue temporary certificates for the purpose of authorizing salary payments to certified employees of nonpublic, nonsectarian schools, including individuals certified in another state, whose credential applications are being processed by the commission. However, the individuals must have demonstrated proficiency in basic reading, writing, and mathematics skills pursuant to the requirements of Section 44252.5. The applicant for a temporary certificate shall make a statement that he or she has duly filed an application with the commission for a credential or permit together with the required fee and that, to the best of his or her knowledge, no reason exists why a certificate or permit should not be issued. The certificate or permit shall be valid for not more than one calendar year from the date of issuance.

(b) The county board of education or city and county board of education shall cancel the temporary certificate or permit, providing notification to the applicant and the nonpublic, nonsectarian school specified on the temporary certificate or permit, immediately upon receipt of certification in writing from the commission that the applicant apparently does not possess adequate academic qualifications or apparently has a criminal record that would disqualify the applicant.

(c) A temporary certificate issued to a permit applicant is not valid beyond the time that the commission either issues or denies the originally requested permit. A temporary certificate issued to a credential applicant is not valid beyond the time that the commission provides written notification to the county board of education or city and county board of education that the applicant apparently does not possess adequate qualifications or that the commission has received facts that may cause denial of the application, or beyond the time that the commission either issues or denies the originally requested credential.

(d) A county board of education or city and county board of education may not issue a temporary certificate to an applicant whose teaching credential is revoked or suspended.

(e) For purposes of this article, “nonpublic, nonsectarian school” has the same meaning as defined in Section 56034.

(Added by Stats. 2016, Ch. 127, Sec. 4. Effective January 1, 2017. Inoperative July 1, 2024. Repealed as of January 1, 2025, pursuant to Section 44409.)

44406.
  

(a) Before issuing a temporary certificate pursuant to Section 44405, a county board of education or city and county board of education shall obtain a certificate of clearance from the commission.

(b) The conditions under which a temporary certificate issued pursuant to Section 44405 may or shall be revoked, issued, or denied, as applicable, shall be the same for nonpublic, nonsectarian schools as for schools operated by local educational agencies, as provided in Article 8 (commencing with Section 44330).

44407.
  

The commission shall honor requests to expedite the processing of applications for teacher credentialing received from the department on behalf of an applicant employed or seeking employment at a nonpublic, nonsectarian school to the same degree the commission honors requests to expedite the processing of applications for teacher credentialing received from another employing agency.

(Added by Stats. 2016, Ch. 127, Sec. 4. Effective January 1, 2017. Inoperative July 1, 2024. Repealed as of January 1, 2025, pursuant to Section 44409.)

This article shall become inoperative on July 1, 2024, and, as of January 1, 2025, is repealed, unless a later enacted statute, that becomes operative on or before January 1, 2025, deletes or extends the dates on which it becomes inoperative and is repealed.
