Program Focus: Educator Preparation and Certification Program
The Educator Preparation and Certification Program provides for certification of individuals who meet certain requirements, including an internship in public schools, to become certified teachers. The State Board for Educator Certification (SBEC) approved the Education Service Center Region 2's Ed Prep Program and also stated that it meets the criteria for an acceptable alternative route to certification under the No Child Left Behind (NCLB) Act. Certification areas offered are generic special education, secondary content areas 4-8 and 8-12. Applicants must hold a bachelor's degree and meet local and state requirements. Endorsement training is available in the areas of Visually Impaired, Gifted and Talented, and English as a Second Language.
