The state board shall conduct a study on alternative
certification programs, including the effectiveness of the current
methods of alternative certification, any improvements needed on
current methods of alternative certification and potential
additional methods of certification that would enhance the ability
of the State of West Virginia to place effective teachers in areas
of high need. "Areas of high need" means those subject areas,
public schools or geographic areas of the state in which the state
board determines that critical teacher shortages exist. The board
shall report its findings and recommendations to the Legislative
Oversight Commission on Education Accountability no later than
December 31, 2013.
