I feel like an absolute moron posting this question here, but I was hoping someone could answer my question. I also don't know if I'm posting in the right area, so please accept my apologies if this is to be elsewhere. I'm relocating to VA as it is virtually impossible to find a job in my area and am applying for my elementary education license (I'm already licensed in two states: PA and OH). All I need to do is pass three exams-- Praxis II, VRA, and VCLA-- to obtain my license. My question is this: Will the state issue me a provisional non-renewable license (it's valid for three years) without having taken the exams? I could have sworn I read somewhere that I could be issued this license (not on the DOE website, though). Completing the missing requirements isn't an issue at all, but money is so tight right now. I know they issue it to those who enroll in a Career Switchers type of program. Anyway, I've already called the DOE and asked a couple of questions. Naturally in my conversation I forgot to ask them about this... Thanks in advance for answering my (stupid/embarassing) question!! I wish you all nothing but the best this Holiday season!
