Endorsements are attachments to teaching certificates and indicate areas of specialization. They are for grades K-12 unless otherwise indicated. Once issued, they are automatically renewed with the teaching certificate on which the endorsement was posted. Optional endorsements may be required by local governing boards. All requirements for the endorsement must be met. Courses and programs must be taken from an accredited institution.
