The Native American Language Certification Policy R7-2-614(J)
was unanimously adopted by the Arizona State Board of Education on August 27, 2012 and went into immediate effect at the Arizona Department of Education (ADE).
This policy allows for individuals with Native American language proficiency, whose proficiency is verified by tribal assessments, to apply for a Native Language Teacher Certificate at (ADE). This policy is an avenue for non-degreed language experts to teach only Native languages to students in Arizona schools.
In 2009, the Native American Language approved area was also passed for those meeting all other requirements for a regular teaching certificate.
