Upcoming Teacher Certification Changes

As a part of Pennsylvania’s certification restructuring, Fall 2008 is the last class of entering students who can earn K–6 certification as elementary majors. Additionally, Fall 2008 is the last semester in which students can enter the pre-K to grade 6 certification program.

Beginning with Fall 2009, all students interested in working with learners in the early childhood or elementary grades will enroll in a program leading to certification in pre-K to grade 4 and Special Education.

A program leading to certification in grades 4 through 8 with a specific content emphasis is currently in the planning phase and will begin in the fall of 2010.

IUP will continue to offer programs in all the secondary areas leading to certification for teaching grades 7 through 12.

Keep checking the Teacher Education website for more information on these exciting program changes.
