Educator Certification

School District Teaching Permits

Are you a district superintendent or principal needing emergency certification for a member of your district?

Region 14 ESC has the capability to process emergency permits online with the State Board for Educator Certification. A State Board for Educator Certification permit pertains to certified educators needing to pass an exam to add certification to their certificate. Please note, this permit is valid only in the issuing district for one-year, and is non-renewable.

Permission must be granted to Region 14 ESC to perform this service. There is no cost to the district for this service. For information, contact Greg Priddy at 325-675-8684 or e-mail Greg
