prerequisite to appointment to any teaching position in such license. In
addition, placement upon qualifying eligible lists in accordance with
subdivision ten of section twenty-five hundred seventy-three of this
article shall be conditional upon satisfactory performance on (i) an
interview test administered by the chancellor and (ii) a performance
test where required by the chancellor.

a school district wherein instruction is given bi-lingually, all
interviews and performance tests provided for by this section shall be
given in English and Spanish or any other appropriate second language
and the applicant at the time of application shall designate the
language of his choice, except that a written composition as determined
by the chancellor under the policies of the city board of education
shall be given in English.
