NOTICE OF PROPOSED AMENDMENTS
The change being made in Section 25.275 is a technical one comparable to the update
being made in Section 25.70. That is, several new Sections that are being added as part

the educational field. We do not consider it appropriate for individuals who are already
certified as principals to use this alternative route as a short-cut to the superintendent's
endorsement. The present amendment will clarify the intent by defining "management
field" to exclude educational management and thus will make the alternative route
available only to individuals with management experience outside education.
A reference to new Sections 25.485 through 25.490 is being inserted into Section
25.315(f)(7) for the sake of completeness, as discussed elsewhere also.
