Under current law, a person seeking a teaching endorsement in
special education or early childhood special education (endorsement)
must complete an approved program and a student teaching practicum
through an institution of higher education and pass one or more
appropriate content-based exams. The bill requires the department of
education (department) to establish an additional pathway for an educator
to obtain an endorsement. To receive the endorsement, the educator must
hold a valid teaching license other than an initial license; take and pass
the appropriate content-based exams, as determined by the department;
and complete a specialized induction program that meets the standards
and criteria established by rule of the state board of education. Upon the
educator's completion of all the components of the additional pathway,
the department shall grant the educator a professional endorsement for
instruction in special education or early childhood special education.
