To Waive the Educational Interpreter

The following is an example of language that has previously been used when state board has considered educational interpreter for deaf and hard of hearing waivers.

California Code of Regulations, Title 5 (5 CCR) Section 3051.16

Specialized Services for Low-Incidence Disabilities.
(b) Certification requirements for educational interpreters for deaf and hard of hearing pupils.
(3) By July 1, 2009, and thereafter, an educational interpreter shall be certified by the national RID, or equivalent; in lieu of RID certification or equivalent, an educational interpreter must have achieved a score of 4.0 or above on the EIPA, the ESSE-I/R, or the NAD/ACCI assessment. If providing Cued Language transliteration, a transliterator shall possess TECUnit certification, or have achieved a score of 4.0 or above on the EIPA - Cued Speech.

The strike-out indicates the exact language being waived but is still valid.
