Individuals who wish to add the reading endorsement must successfully complete the 12-hour reading core in addition to the program standards and requirements for the reading endorsement. This means that reading endorsement programs who accept teachers who were not required to take the entire 12-hour reading core during their initial teacher preparation program (including teachers with the multi-age license, the adolescence to young adult license, and the career-technical license) will need to ensure that these candidates complete the 12-hour reading core in addition to the program standards and requirements for the reading endorsement.
Effective for all students first enrolled on or after January 1, 2012
Teachers must complete the 12-hour reading core in addition to meeting the program standards and requirements for the endorsement
