Post-Baccalaureate Teacher Certification in Special Education online program

The Post-Baccalaureate certification in Special Education is open to any student with a baccalaureate degree from a regionally accredited college or university with an expressed interest in working with children with disabilities. When pursuing special education certification, applicants must have either completed or  be working towards completion of a dual certification in an approved area of study (PreK-4, 4-8 and/or Secondary Area Content in English, Math, Science, or Social Studies), but may concurrently take courses in Special Education towards certification.  Given the size of the exceptional  student population served in our schools, the range of educational services required, and changes in federal law, special education teachers are still on "high need" hire lists.
