Emergency Permit - Definition & Meaning

An emergency permit, in the context of education, is a temporary teaching license or authorization issued to an individual who does not hold a standard teaching credential but is needed to fill a teaching position in a school or educational institution on short notice.

Emergency permits are typically granted when there is an urgent need for teachers, such as a shortage of qualified educators, unexpected teacher vacancies, or unique teaching assignments.

These permits allow individuals to teach for a specific period, often with the expectation that they will work toward obtaining the required teaching credentials through an accredited teacher preparation program.

Emergency permits are subject to state regulations and requirements and are intended to ensure that students have access to qualified educators even during challenging staffing situations.
