A provisional internship permit, adoption of the district’s Gann Limit, and the approval of the unaudited actual budget for the 2016-17 fiscal year are on a relatively light agenda when Fairfield-Suisun Unified leaders meet tonight in Fairfield.
The seven-member governing board likely will approve a provisional internship permit for a transitional kindergarten instructor, Zara Syed.
The state Commission on Teacher Credentialing requires a provisional internship permit for instructors not fully credentialed in a specific area. Like other districts, Fairfield-Suisun’s custom and practice is to seek such permits when there is a shortage of available candidates or candidates who have yet to meet what’s called “subject matter competence” but are pursuing a teaching credential.
