This endorsement is designed for the current teacher who wishes to add skills and knowledge regarding the young child with special needs.
Students seeking an endorsement in Pre-Kindergarten Special Needs must hold a current teaching license in Pre-Kindergarten, K-12 Intervention Specialist license, or a Early Childhood PK-3 license. Students who do not have a current (expired) teaching credential must complete the renewal requirements for a license prior to the granting of the endorsement in Pre-Kindergarten Special Needs.
After successful completion of the program and passing the state board of education examination required for this endorsement, students may add the endorsement in Pre-Kindergarten Special Needs to their current credential. Please consult with a Teacher Licensure advisor in the college’s Office of Student Services for current information.
