MN LAP + PELSB Today's Standards Policy Meeting - July 8, 2020
Reminders Prior to Candidate Enrollment
- Refer to advising section of the Teacher Preparation Manual: Unit Standards
- For all post baccalaureate candidates, check to make sure that the candidate holds a baccalaureate degree from an accredited institution. If the candidate does NOT hold a baccalaureate degree from an accredited institution, prior to enrollment, advise the candidate that the candidate must earn a master's degree from an accredited institution in order to qualify for licensure.
- For additional licensure only candidates, make sure that the candidate HOLDS an initial license. Please note, some endorsement areas require that the candidate hold a specific teaching license (e.g. Preprimary candidates must hold or be eligible for a Tier 3 or 4 Elementary K-6 license, DAPE candidates must hold or be eligible for a Tier 3 or 4 Physical Education license).
- For additional licensure only candidates who do NOT hold a Minnesota Tier 3 or 4 license, either have the candidate apply for the Minnesota license or check with PELSB prior to enrolling the candidate.
