        district for purposes of implementing experimental programs in

        enable licensed teachers instructing those students to satisfy 
        content area licensure requirements, the Board of Teaching 
        annually may permit a licensed teacher teaching in an 
        alternative education program to instruct students in a content 
        area for which the teacher is not licensed, consistent with 
        paragraph (a). 
           (c) A special education license variance issued by the 
        Board of Teaching for a primary employer's low-incidence region 
        shall be valid in all low-incidence regions.
