How will those with prior RESA attempts proceed?
Resident educators who were registered for RESA in previous years but have not passed all required tasks should have received a general email message from the Department, as well as an individualized message explaining any next steps needed for advancing to a professional license. These resident educators need to pass at least one task involving review of their videotaped lessons (formerly RESA tasks 1 and 3) and participate in focused mentoring on any previous RESA tasks they have not yet passed (formerly RESA tasks 2, 4 or 5).
- Any resident educator who was unsuccessful with both lesson cycle tasks (formerly RESA tasks 1 and 3) will be required to participate in the RESA during the 2017-2018 school year.
- Any resident educator who was successful with one or both lesson cycle tasks (formerly RESA tasks 1 and 3) will not be required to participate in the RESA.
- Any resident educator who was unsuccessful with the Formative and Summative Assessment Task (formerly RESA task 2), the Communications and Professional Development Task (formerly task 4) and/or the Reflection on Teaching Practice/Feedback (formerly RESA task 5) will work with a mentor. Through Focused Mentoring activities resident educators will be able to fulfill the requirements of the Resident Educator Program. The resident educators’ districts/schools will work with these teachers to ensure they demonstrate growth in the area(s) deemed appropriate by the policies and procedures set forth by the local district/school.
