Testing Waiver

Testing Waiver – 2020-2021 school year

To fill open teaching positions for the 2020-2021 school year, Governor Abbott has created a special testing waiver to help you secure a teaching job without first passing a content exam. If you are enrolled in WCACP, you can receive this special exemption for your content exam. This special waiver covers teachers hired in the fall for the 2020-2021 school year or candidates completing a fall clinical teaching assignment (placement) in Texas.

The testing waiver available through the program is for a limited time. You must be recommended for an intern certificate by October 1, 2020. A full-time teaching job with a Texas school district, TEA recognized private school, or charter school must be secured to qualify.

The flexibility of the waiver allows for instruction to occur in a virtual or hybrid school setting may that occur in the fall. Schools can employ you in a virtual setting while allowing the program to prepare and support your active certification.
