(C) The alternative resident educator license holder has completed more than two years of the teacher residency program, but the license has lapsed to the point that a two year license extension would not bring the license current; or

(D) The alternative resident educator license holder has completed more than two years of the teacher residency program, but does not anticipate being able to complete the remainder of the residency program within an amount of time that could be accommodated by a one or two year license extension.

(E) The requirements specified in section 3319.26 of the Revised Code and rules 3301-24-19 to 3301-24-22 of the Administrative Code that are to be completed during the initial four-year validity period of the alternative resident educator license must be completed in order to qualify for license renewal, including:

(1) For alternative resident educator licenses issued pursuant to rules 3301-24-19 to 3301-24-21 of the Administrative Code, successful completion of the state board of education examination for teacher licensure that measures professional knowledge, and

(2) For alternative resident educator licenses issued pursuant to rules 3301-24-19 to 3301-24-21 of the Administrative Code, successful completion of the additional coursework requirements specified in paragraphs (C)(3) and (C)(4) of those rules; and

(3) For alternative resident educator licenses issued pursuant to rule 3301-24-22 of the Administrative Code, successful completion of the additional coursework requirements specified in paragraph (C)(3) of that rule.

(F) For a currently expiring alternative resident educator license, renewal shall require completion of three semester hours of coursework related to classroom teaching and/or the area of licensure, from an accredited two year or four year institution of higher education, since the issuance of the alternative resident educator license to be renewed, in addition to meeting the requirements specified in paragraphs (A) to (E) of this rule.

(G) Renewal of an alternative resident educator license that has lapsed for up to five years or longer shall require completion of six semester hours of coursework related to classroom teaching and/or the area of licensure, from an accredited two year or four year institution of higher education, completed since the issuance of the alternative resident educator license to be renewed, in addition to meeting the requirements specified in paragraphs (A) to (E) of this rule.

(H) If an alternative resident educator license holder has already obtained a two year license extension period pursuant to section 3319.26 of the Revised Code, and at the conclusion of that license extension still has completed less than two years of the teacher residency program ("Resident Educator Program"), then the license holder shall meet requirements for and be issued a renewal of an alternative resident educator license rather than continuing to apply for license extensions.
